lovely how the audio really assists the fx (or vice versa)!

I was really excited too see that the Oxyron guys made a sequel to one of my favourite C64 demos :).
The gfx by Oys were marvellous again; great sync with the soundtrack; and there were more actual effects than in the original. Though this is a great demo by any standard, I do think I prefer the original. :)

Yes what everyone said about the music (especially that deepening of the sound when a black stencil closes the scenes). There are a lot of nice gfx and cool effects here too.

Perhaps the best synchronization of music and effects ever seen on the C64. The soundfiltering effect with the screenwipes is brilliant.
Other than that it has great effects, and some really nice graphics in the same characteristic style as the first Natural Wonders.
Thumbs up from me!

i'm gonna give the first piggy. good pics, but not-so-great design (pic/effect/pic/effect/etc). music was a bit all over the place too. nothing incredibly ground-breaking except maybe the end part.

Axis is back! The Credits-Part was my favourite in the demo, but especially the big vector-fades in Yazoos pictures were brilliant too... Musik from Fanta was of course Bamboocha! Now let's get TTS back from grave ;)

Some fresh ideas. especially transition screens. I didn't look as nice at home as I thought it did on the bigscreen, but maybe I have to booze up a bit more before watching it!

Brutal. Very nice graphics by oys as usual, his style seems to be growing more and more abstract which I find positive. The transitions are wonderful, the effects excellent.

Fucking awesome demo. I really really want a C64 now. The direction, pace and sync in this demo are amazing but it also features some incredible code. I haven't LOLed out of sheer enjoyment of a screen in ages, but after watching the beginning of the greets and thinking 'this looks so crap something good is gonna happen', and then seeing it move, well... That got to me.

Some great parts and fantastic tunes (why did the tune before the endpart end so quickly.. :(), special mention about the nice filtered sound with the screenwipes. But also a bit hasty especially watched right after edge of disgrace. Anyway, fab stuff, the image of depth created in the endpart is fantastic.

The look of the demo feels a bit old, but it doesnt matter much when Axis shows that he isnt satisfied with short guest apperances on the c64, he wants to reclaim the coder throne of Oxyron, oys shows again and again that he needs nothing more than a black background and the koala mode to put all other graphicians to shame, and theres a soundtrack to match the visuals.

My only complaint is about the tunnel effect which I thought was pretty ugly. Other than that this is top notch stuff. I really liked the music and the image transitions.

Great! Oxyron really brought their game to X this year. I'm just about as amazed at this as I am the competing demo by Booze Design! Two very different demos which both deserved the top spot in my opinion.

oxy+c64=class! and it's even got a dragonball inside!! My favorite part is where the picture and music fades into the tunnel, really cool i think. Very polished demo from oxyron as allways and yea it does have kinda an a500ish feel to it, never a bad thing.
