Xenon 2 megablast played on the banjo

I've seen a few of Ollie's covers before, Turrican 2 etc, but he's recently done a new one and it's pretty cool...

What do you think?



If you want to see others.....

Oh man, I got a little teary watching this. My dad was the one who got me into games back in the '80s, and he was a world-class banjo player. He would have loved this, but passed away last month

Still, awesome. Thanks Rob!

So sorry for your loss my friend.

But I'm glad I put a smile on your face remembering the great man and his many talents

Thanks for the comments guys and thanks rob for posting this. I didn't know this forum existed.
I've done a couple of Turrican 2 and Dune covers and I'm working on the intro tune from Turrican at the moment

I wasn't convinced this could possibly be entertaining... I was dead wrong! I loved it! You're through to the next round.

Dune in particular to me is great, Xenon II is beautiful, but Dune seems to my ears special.
