Nice song.
i never really played GAW, so, i don't have the nostalgia for the song.
but i really liked the melodies.

arrangement wise, i would make the intro sound, the first part, shorter, and and try to expand on the second part. But this is really cool sounding, and very fitting for an rpg. :)

Good work!

This is a game I've been meaning to play for a long time now... always thought it looked interesting but never got around to it. Based on this, the sound is pretty good too.

I agree with tibone, pretty much. As it is, it's basically the same thing played twice with different instruments, so personally I'd throw some new stuff in there to give it a distinct flavor. My attempts at arranging music tend to go off the rails very quickly, though, so I may not be the best person to take advice from :)

Thanks. I loved golden axe warrior as a kid, and for years afterwards this tune weirdly made its way into my head most mornings when I woke up. There's someone on youtube doing a remake of this.

Arrangement wise, I agree with you both. I've been in the habit of splitting the same tune between different instruments for a while. I need to expand my skillset :-)

I've found it quite hard trying to come up with new ways to extend a theme while trying to stay true to the original. Especially hard with some of the really old games where I only have 10-15 seconds of original music to play with.

Golden Axe Warrior overworld theme is one of the most important soundtracks of my childhood! I think you do a great job of capturing the feel and essence of the original. As I listened, I could instantly recall the satisfying feeling of chopping down a whole screen of trees, and then - at last - finding a secret passage to an underground shop or dungeon.

Nice remix!

The inside house theme is another nice VGM:
