This is supposed to be the first demo ever resembling anything that seems like design as many people have told me. Very nice!

Oldschool,. the first one having design as they told me,... but I had a big desire to vote it. (Rettet den Klassikern as someone insists saying on c64.ch ;)

This was the demo that made me interested in the demoscene. Great music by uncle tom and incredible effects at the time. I think I've seen this demo 50 times :)

Is it supposed to guru after ... "and always remember..." ?
rulezadded on the 2002-08-09 14:24:37 by deetsay deetsay
deetsay: no it isn't

i wonder why my a500 simply skips the stencil vector part (which is there, isn't it?) though.

if you downloaded this disk, and you wondered why the stencil vectors part got skipped, here is the answer: the disk was corrupted, we fixed this now, a 100% working disk is available under the link above now.
sucking fx, boring scrollers, annoying amiga stereo effect... but back in the day, it ruled :) Brings back many memories, and the tune is still great

this is not a megademo, this is the first trackmo. at least the first worth mentioning. it changed the scene forever.

One of the first demos I saw, and a definite classic. Nice logos, great effects (the stencil vectors especially), though I always thought the music was utterly dreadful.

I say this is maybe the most important demo (trackmo) ever released in the History of the Amiga. It was something that was so revolutionary at the time. It was awesome.

still in the top 5 of my demos for the amiga.

What, I didn't thumb this up yet? Shame on me! Simply an awesome demo and milestone! The "Only beer makes it possible" circle scroll is still one of my favourites. :) The only thing I never liked here was the utterly bad music, in my opinion Uncle Tom's worst module ever.

rulezadded on the 2007-06-10 03:51:43 by Gaia Gaia
It's a great tune :) btw there's an story about it too, as Ziphoid put it:

"The reason for the madness in this tune, is basically that Tomas (Uncle Tom) had ordered a stand-up cabinet of the old Marble Madness coin-op from Norway, which he had searched for for quite some time, and when it finally arrived, it was totally broke, so he was sooo down and depressed and out came this song... There are quite a lot of references in the song to the original music for the game as well, hence the 'weird' effects here and there..."

rulezadded on the 2007-08-02 14:27:39 by AMI_TRS AMI_TRS
I recall some old interview where it was stated that Slayer and/or Reward specifically requested a "weird" tune for the demo.. Could remember wrong though.
added on the 2007-08-02 15:21:49 by break break
I've read that uncle tom thought it was a joke demo due to the name and did the tune accordingly.
rulezadded on the 2007-08-02 15:35:44 by hitchhikr hitchhikr
break: i've read that too, perhaps it's both, or all the reasons (hitch), that the tune sounds like that :)

rulezadded on the 2008-02-21 19:18:41 by RA RA
break, hitch, serp: wasn't it because of the coin-op machine Marble Madness? The title of the song is Madness Took Me as we all know. And as far as I remember, Uncle Tom was addicted to that game and kept playing it over and over again. I thought he also tried to re-create the sound effects in this song, hence the bleeps and blops everywhere. Or is this a false story?

i usually hate this style of demos, the whole aesthetic just doesn't appeal to me, except in some rare cases, such as this. it's the fast pace that does it and somewhat in-your-face attitude. i also feel like i should hate the music as well, but i can't :), it's just so energetic, adhd even; i feel like barraged in my senses from all directions, which is something i happen to enjoy. on the slower part the demo loses it's magic, but overall still worth a thumb up!
