Some nice oldschool love. Nice graphics going with an awesome fullscreen scroller + effect (no pun intended)!

Do old school intros possess artistic credibility?
No. All were "Hey, I gonna put this effect here and here and here as well...and here and here....".

And BTW... WTF is an old school.? Rasters? Dozens of scrollers? 1990, before or 2k-1?

Do not cal "old school" sth with kinda "the prodigy" theme, withe a zoomer cooked together in a new way....

Not quite my cup of tea. And miliking the "old school" term once again doesn't help either...

The font rulez and gets more of the message across than what is written with it. :-)

Do tropes and references constitute art? Are they part of it? Are they needed? I tend to disagree; art is that part of a work what excites and appeals to human nature when all context and cultural references are stripped away. Demos are totally dependent on a technocultural expert predisposition to function, and they are more often than not overwhelmed by tropes and references. All demos are artisan craftwork, but there are only rare glimpses of art to be found in demos, and hardly ever in all departments at the same time. If you really want to get art out of a demo, your best chances are on old platforms. Dedicate everything to it, seclude yourself for years, teach yourself in all departments, find approaches as uncompromising and radical as possible. And then you still only get a video out of it for the random bystander. Compare that to a cave painting.

Nice not so old-school chunky morphing zoomer! :D
Also congrats on making people write so much... ;P

Derived from Old is Kool, old's kool, oldskool. oldschool.
Also known as a demoscene triggerword.

On the intro itself: lovely pixels, nice tune. clever zoomer code. 8/10

Interesting question and Intro
Well, with this zoomer effect this prod does not look oldschool at all, but rather fresh, as such a thing has not been seen often before on Atari. In that regard, this prod is not very much riding the "oldschool horse" - which indeed would be boring.

Presentation-wise, I think its one of the best Effect prods.

The zoomer is cool. The scroller was worth reading. Like the result of your creativity!
