As anything coming from polka brothers, synching is the name of the game. It's one of my all time fave prods, it's flawless.

Crazy professional job. Intense, fast and the synchro is indeed perfect: all polka brothers productions set a very high standard of quality =)

Nice, fastforward demo with lots of blablabla and more of blibliblib but all in traditional Polka Bros style.

Polka brothers really kicked the demoscene off with this and other wonderfull productions. setting the standard from day one should have been their slogan.

Inventors and masters of the so called "blink-blink-demostyle". My favourite ECS demo.

This demo continues to age like fine wine (instead of losing its sparkle like an old bottle of champagne), and proves that even a demo that's nearly 10 years old can still look damn good in spite of the productions coming out today. The mid-90's were a great time for demos... not only technically, but in spirit. This demo in particular is a classic... thumb's up all the way.

A horde of delicious oneframe effects. I especially like the line tunnel. It was originally the plan to have a remake of that effect in Planet Loonies, but sadly it had to be discarded due to lack of space.

yeah. You know - sometimes demos that actually run on a stock Amiga 1200 are just so much more lovable than the 060 debarkle of new PSU's and stupendous amounts of additional RAM and so much copying of data. Maybe I'm just drunk, but tonight, this demo was 020 easy bliss :-) And regardless, it's a rocking demo. PB respect.

Polka bros... I was a big fan of that team ! Always great ambiance, cool fx, and strong sync ! Perfect demo ! I think this one was coded by Merge (ex-Laxity IIRC), but I'm not sure...
rulez added on the 2010-12-07 21:25:01 by skp skp
I just see it again at demoscene.tv and it is not Merge that coded it, it's Airwalk.

But well I think this demo was coded by ex-Laxity. (I hope I do not get it wrong again, else sorry to Merge, Airwalk and Laxity ^^!)

Kefrens/Melon attempt with yesteryear's effects... in 1994... on AGA...?

Probably worked on the bigscreen (c), but the screens are just too seen before 100 times for me to get any enjoyment out of it. The music gets better near the end. GFX... well. The font is OK. And Melony. So it's not a total thumbs down. But. It's just going out of its way to not be interesting.
sucks added on the 2018-08-13 00:33:47 by Photon Photon
One of the best demos ever made, the sync is tighter than can of sardines and the music is awesome! :)
rulez added on the 2019-05-01 19:24:17 by mayday mayday
Unbelievable flow for 1994, in an era when everyone except Spaceballs still felt the need to either constantly announce what was happening on the screen or oversaturate the runtime with stills, twisters, rotozoomers, plasmas, raster bars, and other classic (boring) effects. Less is more.
rulez added on the 2019-05-07 01:50:05 by moozooh moozooh
1994 is when AGA effects actually rocked. Great music (especially the first one), interesting effect with plasma-rotating(?) cube, "transparent" lines and so on.
rulez added on the 2020-04-17 19:03:58 by vitalkanev vitalkanev
Yes, it is good. The flow, the sync...

A must-see! One of the first well-synced demos that showed how to entertain using simple effects. Rhythm and flow makes everything in this prod.
rulez added on the 2023-03-08 01:59:12 by ham ham
Technically it is not the best AGA demo, but in terms of design and flow it was a great reference.
rulez added on the 2023-04-14 20:59:21 by Rhino/BG Rhino/BG
an unbeatable pinnacle of oldskool AGA times, long unmatched for its butter smooth flow and tight sync. discovered it just a while ago but felt instantly in love :)
