As a sofascener, Asm96 is still one of the very few demoparties I've been to and the only one where I watched the compos on site. This, and the soundtrack especially, takes me back to that awesome moment and atmosphere. The flow is ahead of its time.

this demo has everything so many of todays demos lack: a killer soundtrack made by AMJ

75% ? What stopped them from finishing it? Must be the real life monster as usual. The effects in this demo look graphically 'raw'. I guess they were trying to go for a photo-realistic approach with some parts. It is funny how this specific pixeling effect reminds me of Sega Mega CD video footage. If you look at this demo from a distance they have succeeded with the 'realism' to a certain extent but there is only so much you can do with 64k of memory and 16 colors. I still like what they did. Refreshingly different demo.

I love the SID music and the overal nightclub feel of the 90s in this demo. Very cool.

Great demo. Voxelscape and color-zoomer inspired by brain-state-in-a-box by cryptoburners perhaps? :)

A classic! Also skilled linking.. most parts are first running in lower speed while loading the next part, then higher speed and fading out. I once checked some parts, and loading is done within the 4x4-timing without handshake. Perhaps not so fresh in my eyes, but it worx :).

Sadly there is no 100% version.

Nice demo packed with great routines. The style is unquestionable - it says Mr. Sex all over :) Overall design has improved a lot since WoC. Good to see some nice gfx from Mike! It's hard to pick out a single effect in this demo, but I think the phong shading? spirals were very nice. Together with Extremes, this is my fav Byterapers release.

Still one of my favorites after all these years :) Way to go! The soundtrack is just perfect for this demo.

Having been a few years away from C64 and having never done anything except gaming, seeing this on Asm'96 bigscreen was a revelation. All of the Asm'96 C64 compos were a blast.

Great demo by Mr. Sex. Has all the elements of an excellent mid 90's demo: thumping fast paced soundtrack by AMJ, awesome graphics by Jate, Mike, Mysdee and it flows from one part to the next without boring the hell out of you. Should be much higher in the charts.

well, the voxelspace must be great, but to me it took many many years to realise what that effect wants to be :) nevertheless great demo.
