Here is our contribution to the legendary NYD Atari demo compilation tradition.

This time under Desire banner.


Logo pixeled by Alien/DSR/PDX
Font pixeled by Hammerfist/DSR
Music composed by TriAce/DSR (his first RMT POKEY chiptune)
Twistors textures original created and sent to me ages ago by Street Tuff/TRSI (converted, dithered under usage of many pixel programs plus own tools and heavy advice by Oswald/Resource)
and me just doing the 6502 work.

Some side notes.

no real hardware features of A8 used... esp. most used raster interrupts and Antic's display list feature... but scrolling of the text scroller overlay is done by Mr. ROL himself and music plus twisting fx plus scrolling (yeah... only $d405 is used, so no LMS for scrolling up/down) plus moving screen data around all run in VBL. main CPU loop is only handling the different FX states but is most of the time idle.

screen resolution is 160x224, I had a 192x240 full screen version running but I don't wanted to dis our c64 friends ;=). same goes to the color used... right now only 13 colors once per screen but Alien did not came up with more ;=) so again "coders color scheme used" sorry for that ;=)

Cheers and Happy New Year!

nice one! :D

It's always a pleasure watching your twisters. But maybe now it's time for another effect :)

Very nice tune, correct logo (good style) and good execution.
I expected a li'l bit more, saying the truth, not only a twister. But the effect is so properly executed that it is all right!!

Not bad. Does it work on Atari 800 XL?
rulez added on the 2014-01-20 13:18:32 by abscess abscess
should work on playing 64k 800 XL PAL machine with 1 POKEY. At least it was tested on real metal. ;=)

Hey, sweet one... the colors are not Worldcup2014 related, are they? ;)
Superb logo and nice to hear the fresh music, too.
