Legendary 1ks that set the bar to the next level

category: general [glöplog]
It's no surprise that I am fond of 1kb intros. That size seems to be the sweet spot where it becomes possible to squeeze an idea and even start telling a story.

My interest spiked ~15 years ago, and I surely missed some gems. Here's a couple of outstanding, or at least really interesting, 1kb intros that come to my me:

* Gloom and a ringing phone
* Chessboard domination
* Space Onion
* Himalaya
* in a loop
* Tracie
* Magister for introducing PNG bootstrapping to JS intros

Which 1kb intro changed the game for you ?

nice list! can't think of anything else from the top of my head, maybe a few of the Assembly 1k compo winners by you and Seven.

Obviously lots of p01's 1K stuff is great =)

I'd pick two others though that i consider bar raising

Oldschool Dos Fsqrt - Paleozoa for the sheer amount of content and story
Newschool Dos Abbadon - Chrome Revenge for pointing the way into the future
