Excellent design, I love the rendering, wonderful effects ported to the Speccy in a beautiful manner... I'm speechless !

And the Atari bombs.... omg...

(I used RealSpectrum to watch it...)

I have captured the video using RealSpectrum (maybe reenconding needed), watch it there :
nice demo... looks good...

but the resolution of the efx is a but low... but shoot me i'm no speccy expert... ;)

Everything in /incoming is write only, you know.

ah damn I did not know... all my apologies... ok I feel a little dumb...

Who can transfer it to the right place on scene.org ?
Quite a nice demo design-wise, and nice use of ATTR fx, but maybe not as special as I was expecting for a 1st place.

I'll have to watch this prod somehow anyway.

Dear Trace,

I find it quite odd too!

Yours sincerely,
Totally cool style!

I've enjoy it a lot. Loved the most when the blocks looked like Boulderdash. Also sweet bombs of course :)

the video doesn't run in either quicktime (with all known components installed) or VLC. please use a standard codec when publishing video-versions of demos.
added on the 2007-09-10 09:50:56 by gloom gloom
Gloom, this video was captured using RealSpectrum (which handles the codec and so on), it plays well using Media Player, but I agree transcoding is probably needed (that's the first time I see VLC unable to handle a video file !)

Really cool demo !
Please give the bombs back now if u don't need it anymore ;)

Love the spraypaint stuff in the intro...

shazz: IIRC, RealSpectrum outputs lossless RLE-encoded AVI (i.e. basically a stream of BMP images), which is why 3-4 minutes of 16-colour 320x200 video comes out at 100Mb - yes, transcoding would be a good idea :-)

Good and fresh music, interesting sound. I guess it has been inspired by Flamboyant by Pet Shop Boys :) The demo is very nice and the spray sounds are quite impressive (AY noise or sample?). evilpaul can do design things which were usually never seen on Speccy before. And we've seen many demos. Yes.

Thumb from me, this is pro. The music appears to be a cover of Chicane's "Saltwater".

That's one simple way of getting around the max. 2 colors per 8x8 pixel limitation ... but a cool demo nevertheless :-)

So - I spent some time and finally managed to make TR-DOS version (that is here http://yerzmyey.republika.pl/bomb.zip ).
It was mainly for my ZX-Sprinter but also it's kinda gift for all Beta-Disk users. :)

What I like about the "Bomb" is just how clever it is. The effects are _clever_ because they can all be done nicely in a frame and because they do not look like attribute effects much of the time (the chunk fade on the twister is particularly neat in this respect). The soundtrack is _clever_, because it uses the style that suits the AY/YM chip the best. The actual content is _clever_, because it develops nicely and at no time feels forced. To my mind, this is great illustration of the fact that demo is a proper composite artform, which cannot be reduced to one particular aspect of it (be it code or graphics or music).

rulez added on the 2014-07-12 15:52:22 by evills evills
Disapointed effects were 8x8 attribute effects and I feel a lot of the effects could've worked with proper bit-for-bit graphics but overall the production is fun to watch.

First time I watched it, I didn't think much of it for some reason (maybe because it was on an emu), but rewatched today using a proper setup and it has definitely grown on me - it's now one of my faves.
