quite cool. mix of seed and 1st part + a bit from InSilver ;). don't like this "dirty" engine, but... great mood, good music, and some nice fx. so, thumb up.

I don't know spectrum so I can't judge the technical aspect. For the rest it's nice (even if the mood of the 1st episode was more catchy).
And there also is an Italian partecipation, so \o/

Just when I thought that this style had been done to death, Inward just DOES it again for me. There's a reason why I consider Spectrum demos to be among the best.

I dont know, how this style could be done to death, coz only who do it properly are CPU. Greetings from JML btw!-D

I often see people trying to do modern CPU-intensive effects on an old machine... This one's interesting because it basically finds some new style on an old machine.. without the CPU being very important.

Amazing usage of both Speccy advantages and disadvantages. I think it's rather rarely seen that the color bytes in Speccy (for 8x8 pixels only two colors are allowed) are used so interestingly/nicely together with spread out pixels. Also music is IMO innovately utilizing the bleeps of the Spectrum 128 AY3 chip.

And I'd guess that the maths and processing utilize those parts of the Spectrum CPU that are significantly faster than eg. that on C64 (vector graphics etc. have always been strong on Speccy).

Nice demo with some really nice effects - swirls, etc. Not as nice as the first part IMO, and I've seen work from inward that holds together better (again IMO). But still a really nice prod.

It's really wonderfull how unique these demos are with those strange renderings on the little speccy. Too much stuff on the screen and preety much original concept.

i loved the first part, but this doesnt have anything that made that part great... plus i hoped to have some connection between the two.

it's one of the finest usage of multicolour on speccy screen. best demo of inward, even exceeds "the path". We want more!
rulez added on the 2008-02-20 10:31:56 by ref ref
ref: there is no multicolour in this demo. this two screen flickering technique is usually called gigascreen, or something like that, i am not sure if there is really a standard name for that.

thanks for the pozitive reaction to everyone!
