Really cool design.

Note: this machine (Sharp MZ-700) doesn't have a bitmap more or redefinable character sets. But we decided to show bitmaps and 4 colors anyway!

Okay, it's a really cool technical achievement too!

And no existing emulator runs this correctly. Hoping marq will do a cap :)

Cool one!

This was really enjoyable overall.

Some graphics seemed to have been included there just for the technical aspect and not for the whole. Sometimes the music sounded quite bad but I'll assume it's due to the hardware.

Love the powerful beeper track and dark gfx.

Should have had more 'real' bitmaps like the last one, but it's still cool. I assume that effect was nontrivial and not absolutely everything could be drawn?

I feel strong 'Snatcher' vibes in graphics.

It's quite difficult to pull off, we created our own converter for it. Z80 at 3.5mhz isn't fast enough to display more than 96px in width per scanline. Adding color could be possible within the 8x8 character blocks.

We might do a final version with the slowdowns removed, but we do want to move on to new productions soon.

Nice release on a tricky platform. Good job with the textmode images, they look pretty cool.

Well. This was a hard machine to get fancy graphics on, that is for sure. There were going to be more graphics like the end graphic but it was hard to work with.

Here's one of such graphics that i made for this demo.

Nice and moody gfx/concept with a good tune. I like the melodies. Congrats on new world record with that image!

The music is awesome, the presentation and graphics are nice, but the technical merit compared to other demos for the platform is really low. Nonetheless Sharp MZ demos are an instant thumb up!
