Cue of the Week: “The Army Assembles”

Continuing the music progression from Wizard Ops Tactics, this week’s cue accompanies the game’s Army Builder sequence with an anticipatory mood and almost-obligatory snare drum rhythms. A martial melody recurs throughout the piece, starting with the low strings, then subsequently in horns, violas, and low woodwinds.

Cue of the Week: “Beach Battle!”

This music selection from Wizard Ops Tactics takes on a distinctly pirate-y tone, as befits a game setting with beach umbrellas, cannons, and a giant frigate.

Cue of the Week: “Weapons Shop”

This short and impish piece of music is from the game Wizard Ops, and plays when you negotiate with a surly shopkeeper to buy an assortment of high tech sorcerous armaments. This “album cut” features a distinct ending, whereas in-game music is often truncated in order to be able to loop indefinitely.

Cue of the Week: “The Evil Blimp”

The game Wizard Ops for iOS and Android was just updated with some brand-new content, so I thought I’d share some of the new music. This selection is your textbook boss music. (For non-gamers, this means the intense fight music that accompanies extra-tough challenges at the end of a game level). In this case, the boss is a warlike dirigible that keeps pelting me with fatal bombs. I have yet to get past this level, and it’s becoming a bit embarrassing.

Cue of the Week: “Into the Dark Forest”

This week’s music is another orchestral action cue from Wizard Ops, accompanying the titular sorcerer’s adventures through the forest and into the lair of… well, actually it’s best described as a giant armed lair.

If you would like to hear the music in context (and play a fun game while you’re at it) apparate over to the iOS app store.
