nothing spectacular anyway. nice music.

i think it was released in the wild compo 'cos they missed the deadline for the oldschool compo...?

i liked this a lot, it was a shame it couldn't compete against the C64 and VIC stuff. =-)

Yes, it was nice, especially the water effect.

yep, it was shown in the wild compo.
pretty okay zx stuff.. lotsa text which was a bit hard to read on the bigscreen tho (at least for me 8))

the water efect was nice indeed, and i also liked the music quite much.
Yeah. I watched it yesterday and it rules!
So lovely music and nice ng and preety much diferrent and nicer, than the usual trackmo demos with techno music and tiled effects on Spectrum (Which I still love though)

I am wondering if it's the emulator or speccy gfx capabilities, which spoils just a bit the water effect (tiled vram/color restriction problems) but still, it looks so smooth and nice. I would also like to see how Speccy demos look on the real hardware onedays, because there are some preety interesting and nice demoparts, which might be spoiled on emulator and don't know how good do they look on the real thing (for example many interlaced stuff which flickers like hell on emus and also some multicolor with wrong tiles/rasters)

It's very nice to watch this demo. seems best demos on speccy are short. i think, these what were released last time.

Optimus, trust me interlace on real thing looks hundred times beter than on emu.

I really like this one. Has a wonderful emotional quality to it that most demos don't even try to achieve

Nice feel, but for me this is primarily demo about the water effect. Everything else seems to pale next to it. One of the most imaginative uses of multicolour on Spectrum.

this is a beautiful and poignant one from the prolific and generally awesome gasman.
