This must be on of my favoritest favoritest demos on Amiga500 :)

Great and fast pacing trackmo! All action comes and goes from your monitor and sooo fast and soooo synchronized with the music that the first time I have watched it, it was sooo great!

rulez added on the 2001-06-27 22:42:32 by Optimus Optimus
i love XTDs music and here it really rocks! great synchronize and absolute A500 legend.
rulez added on the 2001-06-27 22:44:06 by bomber bomber
well music sucks imho but it fits quite well to such a furiouus action... and as demo music, it is kinda ok... as a music for an oldskool demo.
design is quite nice, and this timer-thingie is great as well. one of the best amiga demos ever to come from Poland!
rulez added on the 2001-06-28 04:08:08 by raver raver
i don't like it, it's not visually appealing to me (meaning not very aesthetic). besides, the music is very bad.

I think this demo is quite amazing in its own way. There's nothing graphically or technically impressive, but the music and its pace, the consistent timing and the synchronization are so perfectly considered and calculated - something the Poles (e.g. Freezers, FCI, Tilt, Mystic) were particularly good at during the early 90s.

One of the modules I kept on listening on my PC over and over :-P Later someone told me it was from this demo, which, as already stated, is nothing particular at first, but the pace is suberb.

Back in 1993 this demo launched the polish scene into international recognition. Lot's of articles were written about the upcoming crews from the former east-of-wall europe. Also kicked lot's of polish people into beating Mad Elks, of course ;)

What's wrong with you Amiga people? This demo reminds me of Jesus on E's which also is praised into heaven while I really don't see what makes these demos so special.

Ugly graphics, annoying music, and yes, there's some sync here and there but I've seen much better...

I just don't get it :-)

don't like the gfx, i don't like the "polish RVB" style in some effects (polish rvb !=16 or 24bits ---->only the use of red, green and blue color ^___^).

Was very stunned as I saw this first on the 500.
Back then I liked the tune but nowadays rather not (growing old ;P ).
Incomparable to the milestones set 1-2 years before but though a thrilling count-down-effect-mayhem

One of my favorites since err, well not childhood but uhmm.. teenagerhood+. Used to bring my A500 to the military service and we sat and watched demos and did music on it. This was a total mindblower.
