This one was a good suprise coming from TCB. Great 3d and very good multiscreen effect.

Actually one of my all-time favorite on Atari :)

The 3D intro and that Flash Back logo by Tanis are awesome.

TCB's last demo. Apart from the 3D intro, it's not that interesting.
well, maybe not very interesting, but as usual, very technical. The 3d rout in the dist part use non standard technic (the routine know when both edges don't change). It's prety efficient for large polygons.
and the "four screen in one" is the most technical I never seen for a "four screen " demo. The four screens are perfect copy of Cuddly demos (including rasters, etc... not so easy to do), and there is a soundtrack.
Of course not as good as the cuddly demos but don't forget it's not a 100% official release.
TCB rules forever !

It disappointed me back in time, somewhat away from the "famous" TCB productions.

Very, very impressive! I prefered the 3d part and reseted the ST many times to watch it again and again... :)

Good code, good graphics and the tracker tune isn't bad. However, everyone had much higher expectations for a TCB demo back then so it was a little bit of a disapointment.

A goodbye from the pionneers, somehow a bit frustrating because it's short and it is merely an appetizer. But thsi doesn't mean it's a cheap prod : code and graphics are up to the quality you would expect from TCB.

So very good. Far too short, but what there is is the very best.

Short but so beautiful... TCB's (unintended) goodbye to the ST if I remember well.

Very good....but also very sad :(

It's been said before, but the 3D is awesome...

two very fine screens. the 3D is 3 VBL. I was a bit disappointed. Still, it's quite complex scenery for an ST. the 4 way split was really good btw. choosing the rasters carefully for that, and also getting all the sprites at 50 fps. respect.

I thought this demo was STe only, for some reason.

I miss TCB. They had the best scrolltext.

I guess that's a technical achievement to get 4 screens running at the same time. But why not put all that into a single but better screen?
I just re-discovered this old pearl and have to say that the idea behind this polygon-routine is crazy cool. Kudos!

Its a classic, but not spent on me.
