Doesn't contain anything technically outstanding (apart from the plasma), but a well-executed VCS demo is always worth thumbing up!

Good amount of stuff for the size, and it looks and sounds good as well.

Best VCS fullscreen plasma, Effect in the screen shot is simple but looks nice - that's what VSC is about, and ...

this blew my mind, very impressive. I had no idea this platform could do a plasma like that.

Auto-platform-thumb up + it was actually good, now just find a musician for your prods ;-)

Good that you remembered the anniversary! And yeah, we should definitely do that co-op prod you discussed with oasiz!

The end part with the fast switches was impressive to me. I didn't thougt this was possible with the limited ammount of memory.

Thanks for all the kind words :)
I'd have let some effects ride for a bit longer if it weren't for that risking the music getting too repetitive.
Fun fact: the plasma uses generated code, but the limited RAM means it can only store enough for the visible part of one scanline. The code generation also keeps track of the carry flag so downward sloping parts don't lead to horizontal stretching.

It doesn't take any extra RAM at all - just more ROM (entries in Measures/Logics/Kernels, see main.asm). I simply switch scene based on the current measure.
Oh, and I found a stupid case of premature optimization in roto28.asm:
Code: lda angle ;clc adc #16 sta angle jmp DoneRotoSetup

The lack of CLC is the reason why the end part seems to go ever so slightly out of sync.
