Cue of the Week: “Wizard Ops Tactics (Main Theme)”

The mobile game Wizard Ops Tactics featured turn-based spell-flinging gameplay in a variety of colorful locations. Like its predecessor game, it featured sound effects created vocally by the great Michael Winslow of Police Academy fame!

The main musical theme reprises the frenetic orchestral signature of the prior game, but transforms it into a more militaristic march — as befits a strategy game.

Cue of the Week: “Battle on the Shore”

This week’s cue comes from the magic-themed mobile shooter Wizard Ops. On the game’s beach level the player does a kind of sideways walk while being buffeted by enemy fire. I thought it would be fun to set the music to an asymmetrical meter (5/4) that suggests a literal sidestep. Marcato strings and intermittent percussion help evoke the milieu of constant bombardment.

Cue of the Week: “The Evil Blimp”

This week’s music selection is from my soundtrack for the mobile game Wizard Ops, by Phyken Media. This is your classic boss battle music, in this case for a warlike dirigible that keeps pelting you with bombs.
