Really nice design. The head seems like a soft version of Max Headroom.

Wow, I didn't know Motion can code! Fine design in the intro and quite plastic looking graphics in the second part. Great dithering!

@Vanja: Thanx for your comments, all valued. The intro screen was designed in 1998 and based on some of my unreleased Amiga code. So yeah, you were "on-the-ball" there.

The scroller only fades out to give the impression of a shadow, hence no fade-in on the right (but I must admit, I did consider that, also).

The second part was just meant to be a gfx release (which is how I originally made the entry in CSDB). Then I just opened the Top/Bottom borders and added some sprites over the rasters (yep, those aren't part of the pic - would have been alot easier if they had been!).

I didn't have anymore time to add any other fx, unfortunately, and I only barely managed to release this for Xmas in Europe. I released this prod at 3.15am here in New Zealand! Yes, I am still tired! ;D

The intro is very pretty, has an early 1990's amiga feel to it that I love, with the chessboard and the bubbles, and the cute Motion-sig. Good music as well.

<Nitpicking> The one thing I dislike is how the scroller fades out on one side and doesn't fade in on the other, I'd rather it was faded on both sides, or that it didn't fade out at all and that you could see the letters through the black hole.</nitpicking>

The main part, I like the heads and the music a lot (they fit perfectly together), and it keeps design elements from the intro, good stuff. It left me wanting more though, some animation on the heads perhaps, or some scroller or sprite action.

Finally a release from Intensity's fake group! Not quite Crypt level, though. The intro mentions second part, but there is just one, so the intro counts as a demopart?

Superb design, gfx and music! The intro looks very Amiga style, especially the bubble starfield. ;-)
Many happy returns, Andrew & Marcin!

@Matt: It was inspired by that, funnily enough, after watching videos of MAX on YOU TUBE, back in the 80's. Bring back Max! :D
