Awesome music; I was mostly impressed by the nice c2p visuals. Well deserved winner!

Some notes: the 3d code seem to have the same precision bugs as the code of last year; and the horizontal distortion on the spectrum picture bugs on the real hardware (4mb STE, 1.06 TOS).

Good to see MSB back active again, hope to see more very soon!

Nice production, liked the music and some effects were cool

Nice music and effects.
However, I'm really surprised that a demo with "big" effects like that has so weak transitions

Impressive, loved the rotozoom, great tune too.

Glad to see this one released now, MSB will probably find it hard to be beaten :)

Great prod! Hi-colors GFX are fine and precise, love it!

Great work indeed, and a nice surprise at the party place. The 2D stuff is super impressive: stunning high color graphics and amazing-looking c2p effects. In comparison I feel the 3D bits, while totally adequate for the machine, look old-fashioned. Music is great too but doesn't seem to fit the theme.

There are some nice fullscreen pictures and pretty neat code here yet the demo doesn't work for me. This is mainly because of the music which is either annoying or boring (sometimes even both!) and really doesn't fit.

the music is awesome but i share the opinion it doesnt really sync well with the visuals at times... 2d gfx are very cool as well

Very nice demo with good code/gfx/msx. Although putting it all together could be much much better (almost no transitions and syncing with music). Anyway one of the best demos on SV 2k18! Congrats MSB!

Nicely executed, but somewhat lacks the transitions
rulez added on the 2018-01-15 20:33:11 by gorgh gorgh
Some cool chunky effects, although I admit it seemed a bit unfinished, single screens without design or transitions, had more expectations as it was the 1st entry and waited sometimes till I finally saw it.

great demo with awesome music! btw I guess this demo requires a hard disk. I4d love to get a floppy version!

first i didn't like the music at all... but after some hearing it's quite nice...

the demo itself feels quite infinished... and rushed together... no transisitons... colors are often not my cup of tea.
some textures are bad you can see where the texture ends (no endless texture)...
the partical c2p update is sometimes nice. gives some kind of motionblur also speeds up the c2p for sure. but also looks sometimes broken...

the pictures are >really< cool and nice looking. if you have problems with the shift the registers left that efx out. ruins a bit...
light movement in the bumpmapper is well boring ;)

but somehow i like the atmosphere in the demo... also 3d poly filler is quite nice and fast... "light sources"... but the rotation is quite inaccurate... and the filler produces sometimes buggy results...

so mixed feelings about that demo...quite some space for improvments...but i still will give it a small thumb... hope to see more soon ;)

Nice gfx and some cool effects. Also wins the prize for "most skulls in a demo"!

I like the zoomers and the artwork. I'm not so sure about the vectors though.

Solid code and the hi-colour images look stunning. Overall it's a bit too slow-paced for me but still a surefire thumb.
