I thumb it up only by seeing the screenshot due to the nostalgia feeling. I think this was one of the first cracktros I saw on Amiga and if I am not mistaken I liked it at that time.

One of my favorite cracktros (and game) :)

truly rocking intro. (yes kids, these were called intros back in the days. the word "cracktro" is blasphemy.)

ahah, memories :)

Interceptor was that airplane game, right? More arcade than simulation if my memory doesn't fail me
rulezadded on the 2004-12-23 00:27:26 by keops keops
yeah, it was a flighsim and quite ok for that time, although f16 falcon was way more realistic..
nice one!
rulezadded on the 2004-12-23 00:38:30 by madMixx madMixx
I loved looping and crash the interceptor ;)
rulezadded on the 2004-12-23 02:05:45 by Buckethead Buckethead
The gameplay was much better than Falcon actaully in my oppinion. Great soundfx really the fealling of floating through high air at top speed!

Nice one.
It's so basic and got so classic. ;)
The game Interceptor used to have some funny bugs.
rulezadded on the 2005-09-24 08:41:25 by ALiEN^bf ALiEN^bf

that intro rocks !
reminds me sooooo much things :')

I spent thousand hours playing Interceptor ! i succeed landing on the aircraft-carrier with the F-16 (without any hook !).

The menu's music was really marvellous ! (i always got the module on my c:/music/mod/games/ ;)

btw, i bought the sequel on PC, it was called "Jetfighter 2", by Bob Dinermann, a really great game too !
Too bad Jetfighter 3 was a pure shit :(

Well sweet sweet Memories...

i love the game F18- It was quite nice...no wrong...it was the best flight simmulator back in those days and i played this one again and again.

Also i loved this wonderfull cracktro... by the way we all now from this time on, that gunther craemer was a thief coz he uses the copy routines of fast lightning in his own copy tool...

Listen to the sound and become crazy. One of my fav. cracktro back in 1988.

Btw. Unit As history ended with this cracktro.

I trust you mean this particular _type_ of crack intro, since there were at least 7 Unit A releases made after this one..

From a different game.. No dupe.

Hmm, apparently it also has a different tune from this one ... okay, no dupe then :-)

The music is obviously by Diz/Unit A despite what the link says (Mark II)
added on the 2008-08-19 11:00:54 by Serpent Serpent
Wasn't DiZ = Darius Zendeh = Mark II ?
rulezadded on the 2008-10-10 01:54:22 by hitchhikr hitchhikr
It would fit very well indeed. The comment by Dreamtide on Nectarine is lost now unfortunately.. His old handle was diz and he said that he made Unit A mods. According to AMP his real name is Dietmar Bos.

The first CDC I ever gave a prod goes to this one.
Ice cold! Stealing sucks ! ;) the first tune to ever play in my ancient 1993 tracker, btw :)

holy fuck the song is so too fucking good to be true.
excellent intro.
rulezadded on the 2009-06-17 23:27:28 by nosfe nosfe
I remember this cracktro which is quite a achievement considering I was eight back then :D. It's fucking awesome so is the game.
rulezadded on the 2009-07-24 01:46:18 by aizen aizen
yes, it is. and I was 11 back then, so this is an achievement for me too \o/ ..
by the way: there's a rather new graffiti piece on the s3 line in hamburg (near hammerbrooklyn) that somehow reminded me of this (if you travel towards harburg) ;) ..the spirit lives on..
..plus I was listening to this tune (a remix to be exact) the moment this popped up again on pouet :)

Where's my second thumb up :) ?

My third Amiga demo/intro i watched, better then the game F18.

this thread is long ago, just for the record:
this piece was indeed from me (Diz), not from Mark2. However, I know him and one of my favourite pieces comes from him.
I spare me to repeat all of what I've written here already:
Have fun ye'all.

one additional: Besides writing the article for the beforementioned link, I posted them of what I still got in my library. It should be available there as well, just in case, anyone is interested. ( I even put my favorite Mark2 song in the Zip :) )

Unfuckwitable forever!

Might add that the whole vibe of this - especially thanks to the tune but also the overall 'darkness' - was a whole lot different to intros found on C64 cracks and maybe this was kind of a blueprint for similar intros to come later on from Classic or Paradox.
