I enjoyed this when I first saw it. Why did it get disqualified?

Because the organizers thought it was just the preview of a game.

I think this is the first flyby demo (and not the worst one).

Nicely advanced objects for the time, and the Fred music of course.

Simply ruled when it was released... like all Thomas' stuff he released.

Horribly buggy vectors and sorting, truly vomit-inducing colors and no polishing at all anywhere! Things blopping onscreen and who cares if going outside the screen causes fillbugs :) Still a favorite to watch partly because he did something with the vectors other than spin them and partly because of the recklessness :)

but so good back then

Buggy and slow. But hey, fucking cool for 1990.

Loved it back in the day, it was sure something different when you were used to see rotating cube(s) in the middle of the screen.

The version submitted to the Gen4 compo contains many differences to the final version btw (the final unsurprisingly being much better).

Pretty good for being 1990!

Wow, I'm really impressed. Never heard of this demo until today and it's a pure jewel ! Awesome code, very different back in the days from usual demos and excellent musics.
