You just press and hold rmb during boot to see the hidden part, which in my opinion is better than the demo itself.
The music in the hidden part, a really amazing chip track, was made by 4-Mat. =)

Zone you're wrong.. You have to see it in perspective of 1992 it was way cool back than!

If burning down villages, stealing their women and goods was cool back then, is it still cool?

This is one of the few demos which made the scene history. It had a huge impact and totally changed the way demos were designed so far(with mixed results).

How come this demoscene milestone only got 38 thumbs up so far when crappy modern shit manages to reach 100 thumbs up with no content nor original ideas at all???

Probably one of the very few demos that influenced demoscene for years (and still does somehow)

I never understood the hype behind Melon Dezign demos. I don't know one that I ever liked much. This one is not bad, has some nice ideas, but the music is annoying and it also gets boring. Still worth a thumb up though.

I think the first "real" jelly cube was seen in this very demo. The Hardwired effect is different.

rulez added on the 2014-10-03 19:25:17 by keito keito
Saw this at a friend's a bit after it was released, was still a cool trackmo with fresh design and great techno track then. Rewatched it today, still cool :)

Agree with Paradroid that the spaceship animation broke the design and flow a bit, but Dragonball.

So cool. Still remember watching it the first time on my Amiga. It was on some anonymous looking disk that apparently had been swapped many times judging from all the pencil marks etc. But such content that ugly disk contained :)
