hehe, I wouldn't say it has very much content, but I can remember I liked ronny's soundtrack. and the water... :)

i remember thinking "why the f*ck did this crap win?!"

as i recall it was nothing but a single scene being bomped by ugly "meteors" or whatever they were.

you're really gettin more silly every day, rasmus.
added on the 2001-08-10 12:24:10 by rp rp
Rasmus is not silly at all.

Perhaps the worst TP demo compo winner ever. No need to say more.

Well, at least the soundtrack rocked. But there were some annoying parts in it, so I made my own remix and deleted the original module. :)

Yeh, definetly did not deserve to win.. such a sad demo.

..I mean, come on! Which would you rather see today: Megablast or Alto Knallo?
Would you want to see Alto Knallo at all?

Why do you like this??

an endless fly-around-the-house that already annoyed me in the tp6 compo.

Not a bad demo and the soundtracks rules. But clearly not enough for a 1st place at such a big party.
added on the 2003-07-20 23:27:04 by Crest Crest
I second rasmus. I didn't get it at all why this demo won TP.. Perhaps this one scene with the explosion was really hard to do or something.. but it doesn't look very good..

me too i remember i was quite surprised when seeing this first. anyway, i should hack together my old pc and watch old demos again, as i have only faint memories of them :)

not much content but i like it. especially the music

Love the music, but it really has too little content to be a compowinner. Always been a mystery why this won..
rulez added on the 2005-02-16 00:46:14 by Preacher Preacher
Nice memories but else it was sadly boring...
added on the 2005-03-09 14:05:45 by ghandy ghandy
well, that demo is boring and totally overrated at TP6 demo compo but... i think a like it... so no thumb down :)

The coder i am loved it.. wonder how it looks today?

I didn't like this at all - mainly because there only was one real part (even though it was ok). But the music and everything was done too quickly I think. This was mainly name voting I think - but later Chaos and the rest of the crew showed that they really did kick ass, still.

bleh, what a compo winner...

deserverd win or not...
this was one of the first demos i had on my disk and i always liked it, especially the music.

It crashes DOSbox.

kool soundtrack indeed.

this is a gate to the tp6 releases. the direct access is still not working.
i wonder if there are more bugs like this on pouet....

Now that was disappointing...

looked good on the bigscreen at the party, but a bit downer when looking at it now.
added on the 2011-11-16 19:39:30 by Frequent Frequent
I loved this one a lot on the big screen, it was awesome.

And the music rocks :D

Too little content? Maybe yes, but this demo makes a very good impression.

I used to like this one all those years ago and I like it still today
rulez added on the 2014-07-20 22:46:33 by evills evills
little (yet still fine) content, but the music kicks butt
also liked it to hear it in your dj set @ bp

Didn't age so well regarding the visuals. Still like the powerful music a lot :)
rulez added on the 2014-08-18 00:47:45 by las las
Didn't mind it being a single screener of sorts, but I can't get over that they kept that camera movement. Perhaps a decision made at the party.

decent music though

didn't age well, too bad
Nearly always crashed my PC right at the start of the second part. But when it did work it was nice. I freely admit that I might be overstating its value a wee bit because of the associated relief of it actually working, but I do recall it fondly.

blew. one of worst partywinners in the world. ugly saturation bugs and one shitty 3d scene (though i liked teh water :)
sucks added on the 2016-03-28 09:17:41 by wbcbz7 wbcbz7
To me this looks way better than most dos-demos that came out later in time.
Tech seems to be more than ok for 1996.
Music is perfect of course!
Ok, it´s a one-screener, but voting it down for that is beyond me...can´t have been namevoting only, so must have made quite an impact at the party. :p

megablast always just annoyed me btw...strange soundtrack and weak effects (the 2 scenes that look good in my eyes are easy...particles for the blob-ball and checker-mapped splined 2d-vectors in 3d-space -> lame!)...all the rest feels randomly put together.

Nice music by ronny, but not that much content saw it in this weeks mdt9k for the first time
Pre Frau Brauch.. ;-) good to know that those geniuses sucked at code once upon a time not being born with the magical skills..

no .. just watched super television by orange, same time, other place, light-years ahead of this prod, which is not even good for it's time
