Default Classic Video Game music remade with Classical Instruments

Hi! I recently started making music and published my first album but before that I made quite a bit of video game remakes (I'll upload them regularly, probably one per week) Tell me if you like them!

I like your rendition of Bloody Tears, good work. I'm not familiar with the other two titles, but for what it's worth, I've enjoyed what I heard.

Glad you liked it. In Bloody Tears I went for more lonely, slow and sad tune to add little more drama to Simon's Adventure

I feel that you dropped the tempo a bit too much for "Bloody Tears," making it feel like I'm experiencing the game during lag (slowed gameplay + slowed music). However, I do like your instrument choice and encourage you to continue this venture.

The other arrangements were pleasant and entertaining.

Thanks a lot! I adore strings and orchestral music in general. Today I uploaded another cover. This time loved and adored Heroes of Might and Magic 2

I like all the tracks, but I feel like the strings in "main theme" from Yie Ar Kung Fu sound a bit strange, especially when they are doubling really fast passages in the piano like at 0:20. They don't sound natural or smooth - very choppy and awkward. The rest of the song sounds good though!
