Awesome demo for the time, but it were the filenames that made it stick in my head. =)

Must have seen the vector part a hundred times. It was the first filled vectors I ever saw on a C64. Morphing! Glenz! Come on! And smooth as well. Also some great graphics and good tunes in there. A true classic! It's hard to understand this demo was made 18 years ago!

What will be better in the new release? The demo code is the same right? I do not understand this at all... silly me...

When The Phantom first pointed this demo out to me, I recognized it as some of the most outstanding c64 vector routines out there...especially in the context of its time. I've seen some amazing stuff along these lines since, but this is an obvious classic. I can't wait 'till Jackasser releases his version.

This is one of my all time favs... At the party we were quite blown away with this demo. But we still thought we would win or that panoramic would... we got the third place and panoramic got the seventh... we thought it were a bit unfair at the time but an hour or so after it were annonced we just loved the compo results after all, even that I really think panoramic deserved a better place... but you know... one win some and one looses some more... it is life and to loose to horizon is no shame... Pernod, the opening image is splendid in this one, I admire your skills beeing a coder and also a very good designer and graphics artist, it must be fun for you... The ruler bar were the coolest ever in my mind and could win alone... ha ha...

Proper crunching? It's already a onesider, what do you get from better crunching?
User Comment
Submitted by JackAsser on 16 October 2010
Agree although I'm quite biased... I re-linked the demo last year with proper crunching etc including loading of the end-part. I guess I should release that soon. :P

Great demo, if a little on the short side. The End up scroller, feat. large hires interlaced font looks impressive.

Absolute stunner :) Musically, visually, technically. Together with Wonderland IX they are my favourite C64 demos ever.

Amazing piece of demo with great tunes.

Too bad Bappalander did only few SIDs.

this demo invented all the techniques that are mostly used afterwards to display filled vectors. Atmospherish graphics&music and mind blasting code.

I love the soundtrack by Boogaloo and Bappalander. I still remember it well even though I haven't watched the demo for 10 years or so. The Ray-Tracer rocks too! One of my all-time favorites, also considering that this was the last Horizon Demo (Kjer & Bagder ruled!).

Yeah!! 100% agree with the earlier comments. The raytracer simply roxx, and the line vector morph is the nicest thing i've ever seen!!

That raytraced part in this demo almost made my eyes fall out when I first saw this demo a few years ago. Since then I've seen quite a lot of effects, but this part still manage to impress me.

Nice intro. Great vectors!!! I like how the hidden line vectors dot morph into each other.
