OMG thanks a billion hitchhikr !

This screen impressed me the HELL.
Awesome bigscroll, first I hate the music, later I was so in love. The rasters galore, verticals one... Lot of remakes has been made.

I never get this megademo, but this screen alone and the last one with the bloody good SPACE HARRIER tune, with amazing gfx and morphing. Shame on me I completely forget this one, this kind of demo I would looking for like a mad.

Sure it's my

0WNS! I know this demo by heart. Part 1 has a brilliant tune by Metalwar, I believe; with a rotating logo and cornflake-asteroids; then part 2 with ghost bobvectors and a castle; then I think part 3 is Claude in Space; then part 4 is Mickey holding a joystick with some rasters (someone's first code part), then the GREEN ALIEN with Banana's Echoing, then the screenshot with the giant scroller and vertical rasters, then the last part with the vector scroller (: I've been waiting for this to be uploaded cuz I coudln't find my copy. PURE BLISS!
And yes, on NTSC Amigas, like mine at the time, you can't see the scroller on the 2nd part (: So I had no idea there was one until about 4 years later (:
Oh, and in addition, on a fatter Agnes, the green alien routine screws up. Works 100% on an A1000. Don't know the emulator settings to get it to work, I hear it's possible. (No, I don't love this demo at all. Not me. No. (: )

And it appears Claude in Space is 4th, and I just realized the tune to it by Iron Cat is a IK+ cover (:

(Yes I'm watching it again for the first time in the 2000's ... yay!)

Alcatraz! Now this is the shit! Thumbs up all the way! Puts Odyssey to shame. ;)

'We are first' \o/ One man, one totally cool demopart. Metalwar ftw \o/

Much better and cooler than Odyssey indeed! I love the endpart.

wow, great one! the green alien and horiz/vert copper bars w/ huge scroller are the most impressive. great assortment of st-00 era mods, and echoing.mod, one of my sentimental faves.

It has everything you'd want to see in an '89 demo, innovation and pioneering spirit in code and team effort, it's also got mod.echoing \o/ Alcatrazbars ftw !!!1
