Disjointed, felt a bit like two separate demos bolted together but lots of Checkpoint genius throughout, so one for the win!

Kick ass effect. The best in the competition.

The demo is very good, music, effects rulz!
design is weak point, but there were many nice moments - like 3d wizard
..and please remove me from credits on this page - there was not my gfx
.. as far as I know

What rez said: The second part has some impressive moments :)

nice code but the music really isnt mine =)
rulez added on the 2014-12-08 20:32:50 by wysiwtf wysiwtf
From the first part, I only liked the morphing letters. The rest looked just not good, and the music was horrible. Still, this must have been a lot of work.

The second part was very good, although a bit more design wouldn't have hurt. ;-) Overall thumb up!
rulez added on the 2014-12-08 21:31:30 by Kylearan Kylearan
Just thumb, too complicated music at the first part :)

Phat effect show. 3D-Metaballs on ST are crazy. Respect!
rulez added on the 2014-12-09 09:52:45 by axis^oxy axis^oxy
Very nice coderpr0n from checkpoint. I still think it feels like 2 prods merged into one tho, and the design could use a little touch up. Still, a great demo and a worthy winner. Texturemapping is crazy fast!

Unbelievable fast kick ass demo effects ! I was wondering if that was a Falcon demo :) (first soundtrack in not my taste, but audio compression is technically impressive)

Extremely impressive code - cannot believe it is just ST 1MB :)

That raymarching part looks awesome! Lots of other cool effects as well.

This can't and shouldn't be compared to Jesus on E's which is a plain no-code animplayer!

Waouh !! oO One more time Checkpoint does another big step in new school amazing effects on ATARI STf.

1st part has good techno vibes / atmosphear.
3D dots plane moving, text Morphing, anim, polygons, ... quite fine :)

2nd part is technically VERY amazing !
Ray marching, 3D Metaballs, 3D bumpmapping with 3D distorsion, 3D wizard, blending fx, ...
If each effect can run separately on a bare 520 Stf !! Respects !

Cool music especially 2nd one.
Several nice gfx.

I cannot imagine how much time you've spent on this !
With a little more design it would have even better. Question of time i can imagine.

GREAT work !

Some brutal FX in this prod ! Some designs & musax are not my cup of tea.
Moar of this please ! (just a little more polished)

Cool stuff. more a fan of the 2nd part though but rocks imho.

I was not aware that C2P is now fast enough on ST ;) need to check that out.
rulez added on the 2014-12-10 08:44:53 by Heaven/TQA Heaven/TQA
+ impressive advanced effects (all that 3d stuff, etc.)
+ a lot of content
+ some nice gfx (although sometimes a bit inconsistent)

- unfortunately awful music (especially in the 1st part)
- in the first part the flow / action / synchro is too slow compared to the music

Summary, solid demo with strong code.

Didn't even know this was possible on ST! Thank you for keeping and evolving the highest standards of code - that's what the demoscene needs today!

I don't like the low quality of the soundtrack in the 1st part - its sooo noisy.

I liked the second part more but the first part did have some nice effects, the problem was that the first part was not very fluent. Overall this one had some killer effects.

It's definitely impressive for the most part. However I really think some effects should not be done on an ST. They are just too slow to be enjoyable.

I'm really happy Defjam asked me to take part to this great adventure even tho I mostly reworked TC gfx :) Another huge and ass kicking Checkpoint prod with huge balls !
Yes, plain st with 512 mem and without co-chips. The teknique of 130 poly textured wirzard is amazing, if you know that an ST is basically a frame buffer.

Second part has some impressive effects, but the first part could be skipped completely, and then add some design to the last part. Too much code with too little wrapping.
Just wondering -- is it the first time metaballs were made on 68000-class machine like atari st or amiga 500?

The design and the incoherency with the music are not something good to remember, but the code sure is. So....

It's a good demo, but... well it lacks something in my opinion... Dunno.
Perhaps not my cup as for the music.
rulez added on the 2017-12-10 16:31:43 by sim sim
1st part: content thumb down, realization thumb up
2nd part: content thumb up (and a bit for the music), realization thumb down
In final it equals piggy.
