I really love this as well as Ozzy Oldskools other productions, especially Risperdal Dreams. They just ooze of oldskoolness - even more than most productions from the old days. The music is a bit mediocre, but not bad enough to be a turn-off. At least it has the same crazy energy as the visuals.

as in every other upstars production, the soundtrack is a huge turn-off for me. the music in this demo is just plain horrible with it's knight rider modulations (the introtune) and overall clumsyness and bad taste (both tunes). it sets no mood, it has no direction (*trr-ksh*). I usually like one-man-productions, but ozzy should really get in touch with a musician. not much graphics here either and no design. you could say there's some syncs, but you could sync anything to that messy tune. as I'm not a coder, I wont get into megadycps. I can say that all the effects looked poor though.

Medicus: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=31539 was first in the compo, not "some piece of music".

not as good as emulated, but has a nice trashy style and good fitting music

What's wrong with the music? I found it OK. Somehow reminded me of the loadertune in the amiga demo Budbrain, which is a good thing.. :)

Sad to see that some piece of music was 1st while this neat production ended up 5th in the same category. Ironically the music here is awful ... perhaps nobody was looking at the screen during the competition. Mmhhhh

Nice demo - after all, it does contain a sideborder megadycp - but feels like a bit of a letdown compared to Emulated, which really kicked some ass. The quick shifts of the routines and the vibe kind of reminds me of Kymmene and Problem! from Aspekt.
