Best sync / pacing in a Speccy demo since... well, ever. I guess my "kickass Spectrum demos to instantly impress people at demo parties" collection just got a bit more TBK+4D oriented again.

Very fine demo (as usual).
However I noticed with real pain of ears some extreme noise in a middle of the song. Maybe it's my emul.
I will try to convert it into TAP (if there is a BASIC loader) and I will check it out on 128+ and +2A.
Thanx for Your great work!

Words cannot describe how much you rule ! How pity there are no more elite speccy sceners like Digital Reality, Placebo, Progress, Antares or others to compete with. This demo can very easily win any of ZX mega-parties like Enlight 97, FT 98 or CC 00.

Mad props for interesting and differrent effects.

Well, sub-optimal code in many effects, looks like struggling for total size and being rather lazy and using double screen in ALL effects, many precalced animation-like effects (is depacking animation on-the-fly is still animation or not?), 1.5 real one-frame effects (I've counted stars moving both directions and twister), and finally, not too cool to be almost at the top (herd effect, heh :)), so I have to thumbdown :-D
