Some people revere it. I think it's very long, especially the central vector scene displaying a small world and 3 vehicles.. looks a tad too gamey and futile.

this demo let us a welknown music but no very good design
you will can see the famous pmc infinite fractal zoomer
definitly a demo made by coders
screenshot is not representative of the demo
not like the prod "garbage collection" but still good

Not as good as the sequel, but that's some excellent vector work, and the music is unique.

This one is really nice!
Wade: the stuff you call "excellent vector work" is 4 disks of precalculated vectoranimation...

Good demo!
Look at the title logo, it's spelled the Norwegian way instead of English. Oh well. =)

The soundtrack "Garbage collection" is prob one of the best songs in the history, composed by the great Peter salomonsen

This was great, especially the music. CNN tv-style was also new (for me atleast).

The music <3
rulez added on the 2007-12-08 23:39:02 by Maissi Maissi
Wow! Some fucking awesome code in this one. I like such kind of 3d complexity in early amiga demos and the IFS logo zoom at the end is great.
rulez added on the 2008-05-16 08:45:49 by Optimus Optimus
Great demo, no doubt!

Everything in '91! <3
rulez added on the 2010-03-14 12:29:51 by leGend leGend
I guess it was great in 1991. But I don't like the music and the demo has a poor design.
added on the 2010-05-22 21:30:15 by Strider Strider
well... nice on the old days, but lack some edge to make it a classic.
added on the 2010-06-02 22:39:55 by Frequent Frequent
I really like the style, and I'm starting to wonder if one of the two coders (Vanguard) I did not meet at work some years ago :)
rulez added on the 2010-06-02 23:18:38 by Dbug Dbug
its all just precalculation ! ( as in every Spaceballs-Prod ! )
thats why its oldie but not goldie !

One of the best amiga modules. The demo is nice too.

The first demo loading parts and decrunching while playing music. Nice one, but now, a little bit boring...

I am making a remake of this demo on Lightwave, can someone help me with a lightwave scene player?
take a look:

Did not knew this one, and it rocks! :)
rulez added on the 2011-03-02 19:01:46 by baah baah
@hardy: maybe it's only precalcs, but some parts look very orignal, eg the infinite zoom on PMC logo looks like IFS fractals, homemade raytracer...

Pretty cool. Nice endpart.

Slummy, Hardy: It's not even precalc. So, inevitable vote. Too bad, since the music is good and a classic by now, and it has some (slow) real vectors thrown in.

Good for it's age

Some good effects, sadly a lot are low framerate ones. Great music worth a thumb by itself!

Nice show, despite the routines probably not being very optimized.
