To Rez: GUS can't be found anymore! Thank god there is a Gravis Emulator out there..

But as I think it plays also with SB but it doesn't play music in my computer, the same problems :P

Great art. 2d Cartoonish! Amiga people showing their worth on PC! I Love it..

melon's webpage is very crazy... they put lots of work into it and it looks like they're basically doing flash demos professionally, as far as I can tell.

Damn coooooool prod!!
I loved it from ther first day of its release back in the great days!!!

Yeah! I also would _vote_ for a WIN32 PORT of this one!

This is even more a _general_ request for also MANY other cool demos from the good old past!
Maybe sceners will get up soon and start releasing win32 ports of their good old demos to preserve their great work also for the future of the scene!!
This would REALLY be a great thing to keep the past alive and further kickin' as one day there won't be a working system around anymore which whill still be able to run DOS based prods (be it cause of old-hardware issues or OS based problems... :-/ )

Please NEVER let this happen to the scene...

Music and sound effects are excellent too. I wish there were more original demos like this one.

I usually find it very hard to grasp "scene humour", but I love parody and irony and this has me laughing every time.

Although it gets criticised by coders, from an artist's perspective I'd say this is also one of the most impressive demos the scene has to offer.

Watching for the first time today. I see echos of the ledgenday 'ninja scroll' movie.

This is an excellent creative endeavor. The story is the deeply satisfying and just story of defeating a bully. In this case it is a little dilute, but I appreciate all the people credited with writing and bringing it into the world.
