I remain a big fan of Slayin, a little game that got released on the App Store a while ago, that compresses a full fantasy-style RPG into a fascinating little endless game. I think the game’s mechanics (where you simply move back and forth across the screen, holding your weapon out in front of you, as you kill monsters and collect money and XP) are my favorite part about it, but the soundtrack’s good as well. And now, composer Matt Creamer has released the Slayin soundtrack for download over on Bandcamp, where it’s now available for you to listen to and download directly.
The in-game theme is a particularly excellent piece of 8-bit music, but almost everything there is good, and there are even some unreleased tracks for real Slayin fans to check out. The price is name-your-own, so technically you could grab it for free, but the composer definitely deserves a few bucks at least for his work.
And if you haven’t heard any of these sounds in the game yet, you definitely should. Slayin is one of my favorites on the App Store so far this year, and it’s available for 99 cents right now.
