I actually started working on this demo about a month ago as a small onepart compofiller for SillyVenture since I had promised Grey something for the VCS 40 year anniversary compo.
But when I asked Mermaid for some graphics, she produced so many lovely pictures that the project grew to a full multipart demo!

+theme
+music that doesn't sound like tia
+clever use of playfield priority bit
+graphics making very good use of the sprite mode

Really nice effects and graphics and the music is a very pleasant and different surprise. The theme holds up well and the timing is spot on.

Easily the best hi-res gfx I've seen on the VCS, which alone is already worth a huge thumb up! The theme and design are cool, too. Effects are solid, but the music, while thematically fitting, is not really my cup of tea.

Laughed my ass off, great production, well deserved 1st place!

Congratulations the 1:st place with such a strong competition!

Excellent and coherent style and composition, especially regarding the platform it's running on.
Could've been a minute longer, though.

do i sense a little zak mckracken in the intro? :D
music sounds a bit detuned at places (well, TIA...) but the gfx are SO WORTH IT!
nice style!

Adorable graphics. The idea of use altered line colors an interleaved elements is so cool. Great transitions also. Using a two line kernel to do the Kefrens fits well. Had not seen the twisting and lightsource of the blocks in the scarabaeus parts in on the big screen - excellent detail. Clever choice with $3f. I think I should give that a try one day. Yes, it's a bit short and probably 16k would be possible, but $700 bytes per graphic take their toll and hey, compo rules say 32k.

nice little demo.
rulez added on the 2017-12-14 04:03:30 by psenough psenough
Thank you all for the nice comments!

Tjoppen, JAC: At first the target was indeed 16kb, but then I discovered that the Harmony cart doesn't handle 3F bankswitching correctly for 16kb carts, so I would have been forced to pad the cart up to 32kb anyway.
