Video Game Boom Box Indie Game Music – Mighty Switch Force 2: Credits (Rescue Girl)

Mighty Switch Force 2: Credits (Rescue Girl)  

Mighty Switch Force is a gem of a video game that I picked up this summer and totally loved every moment of it. So much so that after I beat the first game, I went out and got the second. The second game, just like the first, has an amazing soundtrack that I highly recommend but what really impressed me was the song at the end credits. The song is called Rescue Girl and basically they added lyrics to the theme for Mighty Switch Force 2. The song is like a throwback to the seventies (specifically disco) with a little bit of modern elements intertwined. The lyrics are really interesting if you ever get a chance to read them and definitely add to the theme of the song. All in all, this is the first video game end credit theme that I can actually say that I have memorized the lyrics to.

Video Game Boom Box – Indie Game Music: We love burning town – Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse: We love burning town

This music is one of my personal favorite themes from Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse’s soundtrack, if I can pause for a moment I highly suggest purchasing. If you haven’t bought it yet, go to https://virt.bandcamp.com/album/shantae-and-the-pirates-curse-ost . Anyway, this theme is from one of the earlier parts of the game. You (as Shantae) are running through your home town of Scuttle Town as it is being attacked by Ammo Baron. This is a theme with most, if not all, of the Shantae games to date, as they all begin in the same fashion. Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is the third game in the series but the first game that I played and this tune gets me excited to begin my adventure. The best description I can give this level is a tutorial type level very similar to the first level in Super Mario Bros. Without giving you anything to read this introduces you to Shantae’s attacks and abilities. If, like me, you didn’t play the game before, it’s a perfect intro both with gameplay and music.

Video Game Boom Box Halloween Edition: Transylvania theme – Ducktales

Aside

Video Game Boom Box Halloween

“Music has been an important part of video games since the beginning. From classic video games like Pong and Tetris to newer games like Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy music can make or break a video game just as much as gameplay. So in some ways music really makes the game. Think of playing Super Mario Bros. without the theme song playing would it not be the same? Of course it isn’t! The real question is can video game music inspire others to make music? For us here at the Arcade Archive the answer is a whole-hearted, yes! That is why we created this series of articles which will highlight some songs that are inspired by the video games we play.”

 That was the original statement of Video Game Boom Box and it still holds true today. The new Video Game Boom Box is going be a little different than previous articles. Now we will share a video of the music and give some brief thoughts on the featured song or we may just put up the video of the music just for you to enjoy. Please feel free to send comment on the bottom of each post and let us know what your thoughts are of the music. You could also request a song yourself by emailing us at thearcadearchives@gmail.com  or tweet at us @arcadeanetwork

This Halloween we are proud to present to you music that will get you in a spooky mood. These songs will be coming from non-horror games (because that would be way too easy). So sit back and make sure that the lights are on…you’ve been warned!

Transylvania theme – Ducktales

Scrooge Mcduck’s billionaire life is sure like a hurricane (sorry someone had to reference the theme song) especially in this game. You go from the amazon, to the Himalayas, to even the moon just to get your hands on some weird treasure. However the weirdest place you have to visit is Transylvania. With mummy, vampire, and skeleton ducks on your tail feathers Transylvania sure lives up to its name. One of the best parts is that this level comes with equally creepy music. Capcom was the creators of this game and more than likely took some of their experience from making Castlevania into this level and possibly even the music. In Ducktales: remastered, done by the widely talented Wayforward they amped up the music to almost a cinematic feel and gave it that extra rock feel too. Both versions of the song are quite amazing so we put both versions on this post.
