Excellent music, good effects, nice idea overall and a great feeling personally afterwards. This is why Triebkraft is my favorite demogroup (not forgetting 4d by any means). One thumb isn't enough.

(well, actually, basically all the good prods are by tbk+4d, so I'll just make that upper statement for both groups)

Really nice demo, and RA got a magic star - wooo!
Doesn't work in Spin, EmuzWin or RS. Runs fine in UnrealSpeccy tho'.

FYI, if you're not used to UnrealSpeccy and just want to see this demo, load up UnrealSpeccy, select TR-DOS from the Gluk menu thing, press F3 to select the file you want... then RUN "UGLY KID".

Indeed it does work doing that... thanks andygroo.
I forget about the 1001 ways to run a TR-DOS program.

The best demo from the party. Very nice and cute prod. Congratulations tbk/4d! Does there exist .tap version?

i am not in love with every tbk/4d demo, but this is really great! good luck to you and wish you to continue make demos with such good design and overall atmosphere.

When I finally managed to find the proper unreal speccy emulator version with the roms I managed to run it (but emul didn't playd music, ugh) still it seemed quite cool and stylish. Next time I'll check it on good emul or the real thing maybe..

I agree it's not the same level as previous Triebkraft productions,
but i enjoyed watching it. It's stylish, fluent, has a few innovative
even though technically less impressively arranged effects so
definetly worth a "thumb up".

youTubed for viewing pleasure
not real hardware .. realSpeccy was used

pictoplasma meets ZX spectrum! i completely love it for being clean, tight, consistent in every way possible. extra thumb for the character design! this is anything but oldfashioned!

Clever use of bright. It looks different. Modern looking one.

rulez, made my kid (4y) smile during the whole demo and cry at the end coz someone though kid smashed by a star with black blood below is a funny pix for sceners. this demo is kewl for kids too so dunno why it is ruined by morbid-fancy-admiration.. pls make a final version with something far more optimistic :-)

Lovely visual concept and realized in a way that is also technically impressive.

This demo is the reason I wanted to come back to the platform. I do not care if this demo is not the longest or the most technically sophisticated. It is positive, it is funny, it looks great and the music fits it like a glove. It tells me a story and it has heart.
Put simply, it transcends being a demo.
