I love the game Battletoads in Battlemaniacs. In general, I tend to love any game that takes the time and effort to make each level unique, and the SNES sequel to the original Battletoads did that in an amazing way. Every stage had a whole unique set of enemies, strategies, and of course, challenging high-speed pieces that you pretty much had to memorize in order to get past. It was hard, but I enjoyed every minute of the challenge.

Musically, the SNES soundtrack was built on some fairly cheesy SNES-style electric guitar and SNES-rock samples, but the tunes themselves - by none other than the legendary David Wise - were catchy, and, after beating the game several times, they got in my head. As for this remix, I actually started this 2 years ago on my birthday, with ambitions to make a whole 9-bit interpretation of the original score. (I may still do that at some point.) I got a great start, and then I got stuck... listening to the first couple minutes every once in a while with the thought of "Man, I have to finish that some day" echoing in the brain.

Fast-forward to 2020, and during a short vacay at a B&B in the middle of COVID, I pushed through the block, and finally finished it; enjoy this chiptune-esque interpretation of a SNES classic!
