Mainly the demo is good for its music by Audiomonster. It was probably quite good when it came out, but it can't hold up as a must see.
Mainly, it's to long. It shows alot of different routines for vector objects, bobs, sprites, paralax scrolling and dots and throwing in some pics. But, it's all done in the old-fasioned slideshow kind of way. Here a text screen, then the routine for 2 minutes. Text, routine, text picture. Each routine is good, but shown way too long. I think the whole demo goes on for about 30 minutes and could have been put into 15 (that's about how long the main song is anyway).
All in all, I remember it well and liked it when it came out, but see the flaws now.

Both the main tune by Audiomonster and the endpart music by NHP and BKH are among the best pieces of scene music ever created.. But the demo itself is (and always was) very, very boring and goes nowhere.

Then again, I used to really love this back when it was new. So what the hell, thumbs up.

I didnt give it a thumb up yet! It has to be done, this demo was magic!

A masterpiece, but way to long....but back then i didn`t feel to long since every amiga demo was over 5 mins long :))

Zplex: Actually Ice lets you skip almost every part with a mouse-click.. So it's as long as you want it to be. Without that feature some parts would've been just torture :)
added on the 2004-05-29 13:56:26 by break break
Every scener should listen to this tune at least once a month :)
added on the 2004-11-11 19:58:23 by keops keops
Those tunes are so so good..

Fantastic demo !
I knew this Audiomonster mod's of the first part which is simply brilliant (2 mods I got from him with "Jimmys voyage")
The 3D is so amazing, look that sphere tesselation with noise, huge and quite fast. I didn't find this boring, btw I was amazed to see there were other parts :) I can't get enough of this tridi. Sure, if I saw this when it was released, it would be my "fav", hehe.

this and
this mods ;p
I always found this demo quite boring. Just watched it again and I still think it's boring. The code is pretty good though.

In 1991 there was no need to put a 30 min demo into 15 minutes. ;)

The music is ingenious.
rulez added on the 2006-01-07 19:06:07 by Serpent Serpent
this demo is so long. think it ended up being 40 minutes long . but the music was great
Seeing this or better yet hearing this again
gave me a huge deja-vu ;-)

Solid TSL demo (especially the introduction is nice imho), but it lacks the design touch of Kyd/Balle ...
rulez added on the 2006-10-02 14:52:52 by Steel Steel
... to make it a compo winner. :-)

Hmm, this party was held at the same time as 'The Party 1' ...

Steel, come again? Amega party was held at the end of June. Half a year before The Party..

Some good gfx from Walt and a great tune from Audiomonster. I was never blown away by it, but it still stands as a solid production - if somewhat slow paced.
rulez added on the 2006-10-02 15:39:04 by Archmage Archmage
Loved the music.
Absolutely DETEST the pacing.
If it weren't Audiomonster this would be thumbed down HARD.
I love the scroller made up from animated vector objects

Nebulos - one of the best mods ever made. 13 minutes of pure joy! :)

one of the best production from 1991

nice music, but most parts are boring.

Yes, Best tune from Audiomonster (others were not very good) but bland demo
added on the 2010-07-22 19:25:09 by leGend leGend
Like this demo. Not so bad graphics (altrough aren't really perfect) but excellent music, which is a pure 14 minute long spacey voyage.

Audio(iso??;D)monster talking of this first demo and the faboulous Uncle tom spell-amelioration bassline (so fucking true! <3)...
I knew the music module "Nebulos" from Audiomonster, but never which demo it came from, until a few years ago. I love this module, but the opening is a bit dull and the endpart tune is EXCEEDINGLY dull! Massive anticlimax after Nebulos.

Just a little bit boring and lenghty, but otherwise ok. Music is just fine.

Nice music and the i liked the projected 3D.

Pretty boring to watch but I load it just for the superb Audiomonster tune.

Epic music, epic demo. Looks pretty boring nowadays but this was classic presentation at the time :)

Presentation is quite old-fashioned... But there are more than enough reasons to give a thumb, not least the music.

Remember this from back in the day. Really enjoyed it then and even though it's a bit bland today, it was great for the time.
Really enjoyed the tunes also :)
