Tips for Buying EarthBound

October 7th, 2012 | Audio Stuff, MOTHER 1, Videos

A good while back, pk_stan sent me this tidbit of info:

Hey Mato, a weird thing happened today. I was browsing the app store on my iPhone and downloading random stupid things. Nothing out of the ordinary, right? Wrong!

I ended up downloading a free app called “8bitDrum” and I was excited to try it out. As I was fiddling around with it, I noticed that you could play the drums to various 8-bit tunes. I got to the second song and I just paused and thought “no way!”

The song was “Pollyanna”! I continued on in the app and found familiar Mario tunes among others. I was really surprised, so I thought that I would contact you. I’ve attached a video showing what I found. Please pay no attention to my failed attempt at drumming to it. I can’t keep a rhythm to save my life.

And here’s the video:

I’m guessing the creator didn’t get the rights to use these songs, but oh well – it’s still kind of cool!

I really, really hate that remix of the Spelunker music they used. I love that music, and they just ruined it.

*sob*

I do love *most* of their remixes. I love the fact that you can change drum sets according to systems, and the Hustle is a good remix
