Nice little oldskool intro. But where are the colors? The ST could do much better, partly I saw in total only 4 colors on screen.

Let's call it a design decision (or perhaps lack off?)

If I just would have realised that there was atarians on BFP. (wich I didnt untill I saw this in the compo, except for timbral then) Maybe I should lay of the booze.

Heh, were you sitting on the upper platform?

Nice bitbender with x-dist, but could have done with more effects. The music is strange with few or no timer-effects, except at the ending screen.

TWH: You must hate demos that fade out to black sometimes then. I mean, ZERO colours, horror!

Dubmood: Don't worry, it took me half BFP'06 to realise that there were other Atarifolks there (TUC) :)

the two effects are good, but the music is horrible

Nice bender but far too little colours and the music is weird.

I actually like the music :) Good stuff from perhaps the only active British ST demo crew? Unless you count our Outline megademo! Or D-Bug intros :)

ahem... from the description on youtube:
Got beaten in the other platform demo compo by the so-called Amiga demo called 'Fuck Off'. All people who voted for the 'Fuck Off' demo are insecure nutless wonders who still think it's 1989 and wouldn't know a good demo if it came up and bit them on the ass.

now, in all honesty - if a person's demo is of any reflection to the year its creator thinks it is, this one is 1989 all the way, baby.

Nice stars and distorter.

I would say it's old/mid skool in style, as for code, show me a single realtime 1 pixel vertical/horiz dist on STFM from 1989. I'd be gutted if I missed it back then.

BTW - there was 10 unique colours on screen during the main part and 23 colours when the TUC..PRESENTS..RARE text was on screen, sorry that it was only a bit more than the 16 standard colours the ST could display in that resolution, maybe I should have put some nice code rasters throught the distorter?

Not bad but not that mindblowing as I thought :)

The music is terrible but the effect is cool! The slot machine with the logo was a good idea too.
