Part 7: The Flying Krock (With FreezingInferno)

07: The Flying Krock Blip

These segments are gonna be fairly shorter because I really don't have much to say that won't already be said in the video. This world only has two stages, and one of them is a boss so of course it won't take much time to go through. At least it wouldn't except they're both really hard, so you'll be spending a lot of time dying! As a neat side-note, I always liked to see the brown brambles as a sign of some degradation in nature as you get closer and closer to K. rool's headquarters. Maybe you can see it as some nice fall-time bramble deal, which is nice too . There's a ton of shortcuts and side paths as freezinginferno mentioned but, I'm already a wreck trying to get through the race normally!


Skreech's Sprint: Pretty typical race theme, I really like how as the song goes on it gets faster and faster to a point of "oh god he's catchig up i'm gonna lose the race and aaaaaa". Very good at being tense.

Kaptain K.Rool: I... I don't really know what to say about this theme. I think it does a really good job at being this final boss theme that isn't obnoxiously, epic, I guess. It almost sounds like something from Killer Instinct honestly, hell now that I think about it the arena looks like something from Killer Instinct. I dig the trumpets and guitars, if anything.

Here's Link! You have a much clearer look at the Sonic shoes and earthworm jim gun too... I found the inclusion of the gun weird though since Earthworm Jim 1 and 2 were on SNES...
