I thumb it up only by seeing the screenshot due to the nostalgia feeling. I think this was one of the first cracktros I saw on Amiga and if I am not mistaken I liked it at that time.

truly rocking intro. (yes kids, these were called intros back in the days. the word "cracktro" is blasphemy.)

ahah, memories :)

Interceptor was that airplane game, right? More arcade than simulation if my memory doesn't fail me
rulez added on the 2004-12-23 00:27:26 by keops keops
yeah, it was a flighsim and quite ok for that time, although f16 falcon was way more realistic..
nice one!

I loved looping and crash the interceptor ;)
rulez added on the 2004-12-23 02:05:45 by Buckethead Buckethead
The gameplay was much better than Falcon actaully in my oppinion. Great soundfx really the fealling of floating through high air at top speed!

Nice one.
It's so basic and got so classic. ;)
The game Interceptor used to have some funny bugs.
rulez added on the 2005-09-24 08:41:25 by ALiEN^bf ALiEN^bf

that intro rocks !
reminds me sooooo much things :')

I spent thousand hours playing Interceptor ! i succeed landing on the aircraft-carrier with the F-16 (without any hook !).

The menu's music was really marvellous ! (i always got the module on my c:/music/mod/games/ ;)

btw, i bought the sequel on PC, it was called "Jetfighter 2", by Bob Dinermann, a really great game too !
Too bad Jetfighter 3 was a pure shit :(

Well sweet sweet Memories...

i love the game F18- It was quite nice...no wrong...it was the best flight simmulator back in those days and i played this one again and again.

Also i loved this wonderfull cracktro... by the way we all now from this time on, that gunther craemer was a thief coz he uses the copy routines of fast lightning in his own copy tool...

Listen to the sound and become crazy. One of my fav. cracktro back in 1988.

Btw. Unit As history ended with this cracktro.

I trust you mean this particular _type_ of crack intro, since there were at least 7 Unit A releases made after this one..

The music is obviously by Diz/Unit A despite what the link says (Mark II)
added on the 2008-08-19 11:00:54 by Serpent Serpent
Wasn't DiZ = Darius Zendeh = Mark II ?
rulez added on the 2008-10-10 01:54:22 by hitchhikr hitchhikr
It would fit very well indeed. The comment by Dreamtide on Nectarine is lost now unfortunately.. His old handle was diz and he said that he made Unit A mods. According to AMP his real name is Dietmar Bos.

I remember this cracktro which is quite a achievement considering I was eight back then :D. It's fucking awesome so is the game.
rulez added on the 2009-07-24 01:46:18 by vestige vestige
yes, it is. and I was 11 back then, so this is an achievement for me too \o/ ..
by the way: there's a rather new graffiti piece on the s3 line in hamburg (near hammerbrooklyn) that somehow reminded me of this (if you travel towards harburg) ;) ..the spirit lives on..
..plus I was listening to this tune (a remix to be exact) the moment this popped up again on pouet :)

Where's my second thumb up :) ?

this thread is long ago, just for the record:
this piece was indeed from me (Diz), not from Mark2. However, I know him and one of my favourite pieces comes from him.
I spare me to repeat all of what I've written here already:
Have fun ye'all.

one additional: Besides writing the article for the beforementioned link, I posted them of what I still got in my library. It should be available there as well, just in case, anyone is interested. ( I even put my favorite Mark2 song in the Zip :) )

Unfuckwitable forever!

Might add that the whole vibe of this - especially thanks to the tune but also the overall 'darkness' - was a whole lot different to intros found on C64 cracks and maybe this was kind of a blueprint for similar intros to come later on from Classic or Paradox.

Fond memories will bring the inevitable thumb, I feel ;) Not competitive technically, but the ST-01 music is an early song that was different and created a "haunting" feel together with the prudent design. All told, it commanded your attention.

Even if I loved that game I never bought it. It was easy to start, but fucking hard to land. Tried it so many times. But back the crackintro. Yes, what StingRay says. Also for me it's the scrolltext I've been reading most times.

Awesomely designed cracktro, esp if you consider it's from 1988.
Isn't it amusing that the first thing, before even announcing the cracked game is them complaining about copied routines? :D
-> proof that scene drama already existed in the ancient scene times
rulez added on the 2020-09-29 08:51:57 by v3nom v3nom
I reckon this intro must have been among the first ones I came across on my good old A500. I like the design and the mystic feeling it conveys. Despite the fact that not so much is happening on the screen I always had the impression that the individuals behind this production were smart heads who knew fairly well what they were doing. A couple of days ago, I read up some background information about Unit A on Exotica (written by Diz - who, by the way, hides his light under a bushel) . . . and yes, the former members of Unit A are smart! It would have been great to make your acquaintance back in the late 80s / early 90s. Conclusion: Unit A and this intro are legendary!

Are there other UA cracks available out there with this intro?

Yes, this was used in a large number (most likely the majority) of their cracks. See e.g. here.
