One of the really few Speccy chunky demos that looks good and impress. Preety fast 3d for 8bit, impressive tv eye->zoom to voxel scape!

Thumbs up for a great ZX production. Amazing how much they can get out of this machine.

Russian codepower. I always like all the great things that they achieve with their old Z80 based computers.

Unbelivable! The 3D effects are awesome. I'd never think spectrum could do that...

This one has great flow/transitions at places. And for a chunky demo the 3d scenes are clear. Watched it again :P

Some of the transitions in this demo are still unmatched on Spectrum and, for that matter, on pretty much any other 8-bit platform. This is a rare case where raw c0depron is perfectly matched by the equally ambitious design. The scenes that do not fit the overall storyline did not age well, but that girl's face turning out to be a computer screen is likely to be the most unexpected and non-trivial transition on Spectrum ever.

Yeah the seamless flow from effect to one another is pretty cool. Too bad the visuals themselves are marred by the lack of performance and definition.

I´m normally not a big fan of low res chunky fx on 8 bit machines. But this is pretty nicely executed.
