Another nice demo I like, because of nice normal resolution fx (AND NO PIXEL BLOCKS! Should I say it more times? :) nice music, 3d vectors, particles, nice art and more..

Btw,. as I remember, the people behind this demo had lost their fx they had coded and they found them after some years in some old discs but only half of them!

yeah roxxorz! this is one of my fav c64 demos... music is cool and so is fx and design. really well done! and it's just 50%. the other half was supposed to come from Elysium but they never finished it and so Taboo decided to release it as it is...

Well, I finally got around thumbing this demo. So damn cool and still only 50%... hmmm, the vector part is great, the cool pillar(?) is funny and well, the code is VERY GOOD. The interference was a shocker when I saw it the first time and it still looks very cool, even though 'Deus ex Machina' does is the right way. Nice 'funny' music which suits I think. As for the GFX... ...yep, it rlz, although some more smaller graphics here and there would be nice. Definately one to show for the grandchildren! :))))

Lots of nice parts, plus some boring graphics.

roxxoring vector and the best c64 interference i have seen... and always a nice thing when ppl decide to release a demo, even if it didn't turn out as planned. there's too many "demos that weren't" out there.

The most shocking thing is the fact that coordinates for vector-part are calculated by 1541-disk drive and c64 does only filling/drawing...pure madness 8-O

a milestone. the vector-part is a pure jawdropper.

Yes, this one was really nice. And the music was great.

very cool for c64 :)

that triangle at the beginning (so hot!!)! the nice but boring twisting pillar.. the glenz is always so damn slow, but i forget it's 1MHz 6502. the dot tunnel is amazing :) i know that fast offsetmap trick now (with very small texture). graphics are great.

the fountain is cool shit :) chunky zoomers bore me a bit nowadays. mad circles: good one for c64!

and good music as well! i esp love the end tune! funk!!

it's VICE that sux or I can't see this demo because of bad configuration? :(

nice demo.. i suppose you didnt do those fill-routines back in 94?
rulez added on the 2008-05-24 12:22:15 by rudi rudi
Problem fixed! This demo ROXX!
rulez added on the 2008-05-24 12:26:33 by SoDa7 SoDa7
may i add that for 94 this is utterly fabulous!?
added on the 2008-05-24 12:43:13 by earx earx
great demo, however, due to various reasons it wasn't released in '94 (too bad). it was released in '97. release date fixed.

Great demo. The missing 50% were later released as Late Ejaculation.

Great atmosphere. Fantastic demo!!

Way too non-trackmo-like and thin on the good bits for my taste. First two or three minutes are quite enjoyable though, and the latter parts have some exquisite graphics. Are the first couple tracks covers? Both sound very familiar...
added on the 2015-06-26 23:45:32 by noby noby
Some music in there sound a bit off-tone and some of the parts end really abrupt. But the graphics are nice and so are some of the effects (I really like the column twister) All in all still thumbs up

Very nice FX and really good tunes.

The first tune has some very curious chord progression.
