They're some things that you'll not see in this démo depending of your video card...

well, the real name is "toypusher", the filename is "toypushe" cause of 8 caracters :)
added on the 2000-09-09 10:58:17 by rez rez
rez already mentioned it, the name of this baby is toypusher not toypushe. This is a nice and simple one but because of this very adorable. Watch it and feel it!
this is dull this is dull this is dull repeat after me

Killer soundtrack let down by an empty demo. I remember being totally pissed off because this demo requires a twin texture accelerator... FOR WHAT? I've seen nothing in the whole bloody demo that couldn't have been done on simple accelerators or even software.

(Incidental note: the party version is a little different, and there's a 800x600 mode as well)

audio + visual melts up in a perfect unit of pure and solid entertainment.
this runs a bit too fast on a 1Ghz Athlon + GF2 tho. Fire it up!

Indeed, the soundtrack is really nice, but keep in mind that it's mainly a huuuuge rip from Upside down by Diana Ross ;)
added on the 2001-01-25 17:44:58 by alexkidd alexkidd
it's not exactly a rip, it's a well done mix and the visuals fit very well to the sound...
that's the goal of a demo too.

the visuals may not be utterly stunning, but the music certainly is! rocks.

sampling something != ripping something

and this one rocks.

The music rocks! Visuals might not be that impressive, but they fit to the music perfectly.
Thumbs up!

yep. i instantly fell in love with this demo. great soundtrack. although when i saw this at the first time, teel's gfx card fucked up the textures...so it was quite weird then. ;)

Very nice look and colours and all... but also very empty. Maybe I saw far too many 100^100 layers demos, but this feels like there is missing quite some content. The music is just a 'upside down' remix, but ok.

sweet one.
empty - yes. but oh sooo sweet.
grandmom of all those disco-themed demos of the late.

nice funky stylish little demo by purple - kudos! (disco forever)

cute lil' thing.. good filter-disco track. for those who consider it ripped, bear in mind that when this was released lots of pro recording artists (daft punk, bob sinclair, stardust, etc.) were doing the same thing and calling it their own.. uhm, as for the rest of it, funky colors, good simple style, fast code.. i was just really disappointed the little afro guy didn't dance :( he just stood there...

Ok. Not my taste, and the effects were not great. The tentacles ruled, but had little to do with the rest of the demo. Good design still.

The b/w zoomer was nicely hypnotic, and the tentacles were nicely animated, although they weren't perhaps presented in the most awe-inspring fashion. Unfortunately I find the entire demos suffers from thought-out-but-generic design. (Huh? Well, I know what I mean, so there...)

Cute tune ;]

The soundtrack was great, and the humor of purple was back. The effect side was a little weak though - but flawless design.
