One of the best oldschool spanish demos. Iguana's design, with lot of cool fx and great music.

I hit my head hard in the wall because it freezes after the very first rotozoomer! :P

Damn! Even if I have to see this demo from when I had a 486, I still remember very hard the parts!!!

Fave parts: Beautifull Voxels! Elastic 2d Vectors! (Magnificent and Fun(k)y! ;)
End Writer with Voxels! (Splendid and Beautifull!!!)

Nice tune too. Iguana Demos includes some original and funny 2d fx!

One of my favourites "back then". Soundtrack isn't actually extraordinary, but it's a nice demo. I'll give it a 'rulez' for nostalgic reasons :)

Good voxel, good music, okey demo

Heeeeavy code, listenable soundtrack, erm... oldskool design.
What else do ya need? (it even has particles :)

one of the first demos I remember to have seen, and I still have great feelings for this wonderful production :)

Indeed, a classic and original demo by Iguana :)

one of the best demos ever! iguana rulez! very original effects, something demos of today are lacking of...

roooox! the feeling kicked my ass!

But gets an extra suck-bonus for making it run even on my old 486 and P1...

I would've so much wanted to see this on the Mindcandy DVD because sadly it doesn't run on any computer I have. It wasmy favourite oldschool demo ever. The landscape and rubber polys really kick ass, as well as the water in the end. Big thumbs up!

Nice voxel and waterpart, and the rubber polys are really nice too. Nice music and a good design to top it all off...

Really really good!
The endscroller is lol & The Sky of Motion is one of my favourite modules.
Morph & rubberpolys rulz, and the voxel landscape is one of the nicest i've ever seen.

Kthx to DosBox wich ran the demo perfectly.
rulez added on the 2006-05-14 18:46:00 by bdk bdk
First drawing of the lizard with the gun doesn't look all that hot (look at his hand), but there are very nice effects.

Was cool to use the arrow buttons and "walk" around the landscape.

Music/visual combination in the end part is really great.

Hehe.. Great one.. saw this one some years ago on an old 486.

Does someone know how to get this to run with dosbox? i have tried it, but cannot make it run :/
rulez added on the 2006-07-21 16:58:37 by Sapphire Sapphire
saphirjd: it runs fine for me.. dosbox 0.65, dynamic core, gus, ems/xms/umb=true. just some stalling in the morphing part.
rulez added on the 2006-07-21 19:09:16 by phoenix phoenix
oh yeah, and to justify my thumb.. fond memories mostly. not particularly amazing gfx or music, but fun and quirky. a demon wanting to see realtime morphing, the camera banging into the side of the infamous comance voxel scape, a random group member turning into an iguana, a disco guy with a gas mask for some reason.. silly but cool. and yeah, the last tune makes the endpart memorable.

rewatched this yesterday and i'm afraid the rotines might be fast for their time but the years have not been kind to this one. total eye cancer rotfl at how ugly it looks
added on the 2012-03-17 08:19:53 by psenough psenough
Technically as good as the 1994 winner ("Verses") and easily better than the second place ("Holistic"), I can nevertheless see why it got third place: the art is poorer. Still a kickass demo, tho'!

spain's pride.
The fake voxel fluid at 5:30 is just awesome for i486 DX2-66Mhz

Very good and advanced at the time, great endpart.

I didn't know that Mike Damone from "Fast times at Ridgemont High" was making demos :P

Pretty cool considering when it was made, and the hardware it was made for.
rulez added on the 2012-08-21 19:02:52 by mic mic
There's probably no way to not thumb up this one. Some excellent parts for '94. My favourite face from the demo is this one. Wonder what that guy's doing now, almost 20 years later. :)

Some good effects but goddamn is it boring and ugly. Music perfectly matches the visuals too.

one of the most ugliest demos i've ever seen.

one of the ugliest or most ugly i mean ;)
and music is very bad also.
I liked this back then. Particularly the morphing and the fluid thing were impressive.
rulez added on the 2014-02-17 17:35:00 by yzi yzi
What the heck is all that REVOLUTION sample about? It is annoying and horrible!! Some nce gfx here thou and decent code! But the demo's music is not a "perfect" one, if you can read between my lines. I most enjoyed the end part, with nice tune and excellent greetings part. Almost the best of the demo.
And the Blastersound BBS advert put into the archive is great!
rulez added on the 2014-03-07 23:55:44 by sim sim
Nice variety of effects and I watched those watery end credits for ages.
rulez added on the 2014-09-17 21:30:33 by Harekiet Harekiet
Just watched it again. Still a lovely demo. I remember I got it from the Assembly '94 disc I found at the local multimedia store for cheap. I hurried home and spent the whole evening trying to run demos an continuously rebooting my PC... ;)

Some really great ideas (the wobbly characters and morphing faces) with totally legit tracker music and probably the greatest credits part ever? The voxel landscape deserves a special mention :)
rulez added on the 2015-10-17 19:40:58 by cce cce
Some very nice code and ideas melted with more classic effects. Music is not very good.
