Rocket Knight adventuring to a sick drum beat

Dtoid's little drummer boy NukaCola is back with a brand new drum cover, this time of one of favorite game series ever, Rocket Knight. Specifically, he covers the opening level themes of both Sparkster on the SNES and Rocket Knight Adventures 2 on the Genesis. They are variations of the same tune, the former at a lower tempo and the latter at a more high-octane pace. Both are magical, of course.

I'm so glad Nuka shared this with me. I've got the original right here in my room, and I've been itching to play a little Genesis over the past few weeks. I think this video has pushed me over the edge. I'm off to relive my childhood, people! Peace!
