Blastian (iPhone game)

Small project, nice little iPhone shoot-em-up. They only required a theme tune and a repeated in-game tune.

My thinking n this one was that shoot-em-up games always use generic moody techno. To me, this doesn’t capture the feeling of a really great shoot em up, which is a lot more “HELL YEAH” than that. So I suggested going total rock / metal with it. It seemed to work out pretty well.

The theme tune is utterly shameless proggy rock. The in-game stuff is a fairly blatant stab at something like the more angular bits of Led Zeppelin’s oeuvre; like something off Presence, maybe. Makes me want to blow stuff up, anyway.
