@shani / @secret333 / @Captain_Gonru
Hey guys. I thought I'd just share with you my reasoning for the '6' and also thank you all for opening up a good discussion about the game rather than attacking myself and each other. It's lovely and refreshing to see!

So yeah... the 6. Everything you guys are saying are all valid points. As Captain_Gonru said I really wanted to give the game a higher score and I was trying to get that message across in the review. The Metacritic scores you mentioned feel about right, 7.5 - 8 is the score that I would like to have been able to give.

I stand by my comments on repetition but want to clarify that this is a pretty minor thing. This amongst other little niggles is what was stopping the game from being a 9. Unfortunately, I came across a bug whilst playing that forced me to restart a whole level, which, whether I like it or not, is technically 'game-breaking'. I enjoyed the game; the ideas behind it were fantastic but I can't recommend a game to our readers with such a glowing score of a 7/8/9 when there are issues such as this.

If as some of you were talking about there is a patch released soon that irons out these problems that would be awesome.

The other thing to point out is that the score is never the main part of the review that you should be focusing on. (Although I appreciate that's pretty hard to do). I think that the review itself shows the game in mostly a very positive light. Also, remember that 6 isn't actually a 'bad' score. So considering it had such a major bug the rest of the game was clearly at a very high standard to still achieve that score.

Hope that clears things up a little, thanks for reading!

@RantingThespian Thank you very much. I have several Nintendo themed songs on my channel (none of them hurt in the feels like this one though!)

As for my voice the entire song (apart from the last chorus) is double-tracked. (Incase you're unaware this means that I've recorded the entire vocal twice and panned each take to separate sides of the stereo space which gives it a very 'full' sound). There is a little reverb and compression. Then in the choruses and middle section I added a very basic echo.
