SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Color My World Edition

I like color in my games. That isn't to say I don't enjoy a good gray romp now and then, but I do love my colorful games. The following VGMs are full of color and great bouncy melodies. Fun stuff! Let's get to it!

V536. Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg - Chant This Charm ~Theme of Giant Egg~

Believe it or not, Chant This Charm ~Theme of Giant Egg~ is the main theme of Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, and overlooked but not really underrated Gamecube platformer. Controlling that darned egg was quite a nuisance in later levels. Well, you know how I feel about the game after reading my review. You DID read my review, right?

v537. Paper Mario - Angry Bowser

Bowser MAD! This is the main theme of Bowser in the Nintendo 64 RPG classic, Paper Mario. Paper Mario was a game that was tentatively titled Super Mario RPG 2. I know this because that was its name for years as I eagerly waited for the game to come out. When it finally did, I was overjoyed. Paper Mario is a great addition to Mario's repertoire of games.

v538. Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure - The Butler Did It!

The title theme of Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, this jaunty song is quite nice, don't you think? Henry Hatsworth was an interesting puzzle/platformer hybrid that could be very unforgiving in its difficulty. That said, I very much enjoyed what the game had to offer and look forward to the team's next DS game coming out sometime this year.

v539. Pokemon Stadium - Gym Leader Battle

Of the eight original gym leaders, do you have a personal favorite? Mine would probably be Brock since he was always funny in the anime. Well, that isn't true since they stretched out his "gaga over women" deal about 200 episodes too many. Regardless, this theme is very recognizable to any Pokemon fan.

v540. Boom Blox - Blockland

If you're not familiar with the composer, Mark Mothersbaugh, he also did the music for the Nicktoon, Rugrats, back in the day. Boom Blox was a collaborative effort between bigshot Hollywood director Steven Spielberg and Electronic Arts. The end result is one of the best third party experiences one can have on the Wii. It's mad fun to chuck baseballs, toppling towers, and playing Jenga-inspired games.

Next week we'll be monkeyin' around with some music from games featuring those great gorillas and sensational simians. See you then!
