Very enjoyable. A worthy winner of a rather mediocre compo.

I liked the athmo and music, otherwise little chaotic direction for my taste. Still ok.

Crashes on every resolution except my full screen resolution (at which it runs at 1 FPS)...
looks okish, same for tune.

I have the same issue here as Saga Musix. I had to run it at full resolution. I did however get more than 1fps, there were a couple of seconds of slowdown, other than that it ran fine.

I'd like a little less of that nasty flicker too. But, cool. The tune rules hard.

Most Traction demos I recall have such nice colour schemes, whereas I found this one to be quite ugly. It reminded me of some of those awful Deluxe Paint pictures painted in Shade mode.

It was also pretty boring. But nothing so bad that it deserves a thumb down.

the soundtrack is great and the visuals are acceptable too.
but sadly there is only a weak connection between these two..

Definitely winamp-pluginish at places. Still, the FX look good and the soundtrack is outstanding.

Same issue as Saga_music, with ATI 4550 / Win7 64.

Regarding content, it only started to grow on me at the end, so I guess a longer version, but also much more carefully directed, would get my thumb.
added on the 2011-05-28 07:57:31 by Zavie Zavie
didn't expect it to be that good. The music is top notch and the visuals fit perfectly.

Pretty good, liked the last 'remnants' before the 'vectormountaintunnel' and the vertical stripes-glitch. Would have benefitted from losing the cubes and dodecas, shorter and in 64k would have been awesome!
