Video Game Music of the Week - 187
Oceanhorn (iOS, PC)
Casual Cave, Sky Island, Town, Sailing
Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharted Seas is an iOS game that is very much inspired by The Legend Of Zelda series, most notably The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker. The game has since been released on PC as well.
This track is one of the cave/dungeon style tracks in the game. It is not as tense as some of the other dungeon themes and features a more relaxed overall sound with some mysterious characteristics.
The Sky Island track features an uproar of inspiration and motivation thanks to its encouraging string opening and impactful melody.
The Town theme begins with a very warm piano opening, followed by a woodwind instrument which plays the main melody of the song. Its a very peaceful tune with some light touches of fantasy.
The Sailing theme is the games most ambitious song. The track is certainly reminiscent of The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker Overworld theme, but is still very much a song with its own unique characteristics as well.
