this is one of the best legendary demos i've ever seen! the best demo by Sanity! I LOVE IT!

One of my favoritest Amiga500 demos I have ever seen! Cool music and some great fx (A great blurred rotozoomer at the beginning and I sine scroll which is distorted by the music)
rulezadded on the 2001-06-27 22:04:52 by Optimus Optimus
Actually, it is not simply "a" rotozoomer, it is the first rotozoomer *ever* (chaos invented it for this demo :)

This alone should be proof that this demo is a must see lesson in demoscene history :)
rulezadded on the 2001-06-27 22:14:27 by ryg ryg
that's what i call a demo - thousands of excellent effects =)
rulezadded on the 2001-06-28 00:08:12 by robotriot robotriot
millions of awesome effects ;)
nah, maybe not. but the music, the graphics, the code, everything is just great and that makes perfect oldskool demo. no need for wise words, this is a demo for "demoscene purists" :)
rulezadded on the 2001-06-28 04:11:24 by raver raver
Every real scener should know this demo !
And the music is one of the best examples of the classic-amiga-demo style...
rulezadded on the 2001-06-28 15:03:09 by exocet exocet
yeah, the first on-bitmap effects i have see, like the first rotozoom and shrink of pictures, and off course a good music !

You wanna buy an amiga just to see it ;) (i know UAE but it is less rootz:))
rulezadded on the 2001-07-31 10:48:27 by Tex Tex
yep another very good demo from sanity (the best in my opinion being roots 2.0), excellent effects, very good music and synchronisation, long without being boring! on the other side (i'm a bad guy) ppl wake up, you could see many bitmap effects by that time just remember the good old snes. i agree anyway that making this on an amiga was a real challenge but i still prefer roots's mode7 (8

My favorite demo ever , beating PC one´s !!!! This one kills any PC demo by his power and creativity , and all this just on a poor(?!?) AMIGA . I Love this computer and this demo . Amiga is creativity . World of Commodore demonstrate it . Well done guys . Hope you´re alive on the scene .

the fullscreen 'bouncing' and scrolling thing with morphing texture on it, it just totally blew me away... How the hell did they do that? :)
And the music especially in the first part, is very good (reminds me a bit of the Enigma soundtrack)
rulezadded on the 2002-06-04 02:59:42 by Scali Scali
i remember when this demo was released. it caused quite a hype. Definetely one very important mark in amiga demoscene history, thats for sure. I even remember having a small bet that Amiga was THE demomachine, and a pc-owning friend of mine argued. Well.. next yeat at Asm'93 Extension was released and I won the bet ;)

rulezadded on the 2002-11-14 15:01:14 by nufan nufan
Absolutely groundbreaking code. One of the few demos with new and exclusive routines. First rotozoomer and the first dot tunnel (I think), both of which became standard effects in almost all subsequent demos. Complemented by excellent graphics and music, this is definitely a milestone in terms of the scene's evolution.
rulezadded on the 2003-07-26 18:26:43 by Wade Wade
really great stuff, considering the fact that it consisted of yet unseen things back then. doesn't get me jumping nowadays, but i remember when i first saw it .. !.
rulezadded on the 2003-07-26 19:38:07 by dalezr dalezr
Wait just a minute here! "Consisted of yet unseen things"? Apart from the blurred rotozoomer, weren't EVERY effect in this demo used before in older Sanity prods? Even Chaos referred to it as "Best of Sanity" in several diskmags. Well it's still a classic demo, especially the 2nd part with Bit Arts' fabulous tune.
rulezadded on the 2003-07-27 09:14:22 by break break
Break: Correct. Wade: No, not the first dot tunnel... Still rules though :)

Ryg, hitchhiker, wade and the others: you are wrong and Stelthz is right, Chaos did NOT make the first rotozoom ever, sorry.
This Atari demo http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=498 made in 1990 (i.e 2 years ealier) already had one, as earx emphasized it in a recent bbs thread.

But the music is a rip-off from the Enigma tune "A Final Hyperbase".

i really don't think it qualifies as a rip... the particular genre (amiga italo demopop or whatever) is just so inbred and full of clichés that the tunes are bound to sound similar.

One of the best A500 demos!
Every true demoscener knows that great music by Jester (first part). But the one composed by Bit Arts (end part) is also very good!
Lots of great effects and a very polished design.
And moreover, this is the origin of the rotozoom fever!
