Snowboard Kids (N64)
Night Highway, Silver Mountain, Big Snowman
Snowboard Kids is a 1998 snowboarding game for the Nintendo 64 which featured certain elements from classic kart racing games. It features a surprisingly remarkable soundtrack that emits both levels of bumpy fun and passionate melodies.
Night Highway’s focus is its main melody with an instrument that sounds very much like a classic NES sound. Like the soundtrack itself, it is filled with numerous synthesised instruments and sounds.
This track starts with a rapid piano chord progression and shortly after features a more robust, techno and synthesised sound.
Big Snowman has a rather different sound then to some of the other themes in the game. It is quite uplifting in it’s delivery and has a slightly more pop sound to it.
