Thanks, Hermit! And thanks to everyone else for the feedback on this. It makes me want to make more demos :) - And the logo, yes, I wasn't really in the mood for doing gfx, and didn't know anyone who could help me at the time. If I try making gfx again, I'll put more effort into it.

The tune is great, Necropolo: the pleasure was all mine.

This is a really nice little prod with many bobs. I guess logo is intended to be that rough...
I still enjoy listening this 1 rasterline tune, you did a great job with it Necropolo, clean and good melody & rhythm. Sounds remind me of floppy-drive sounds thanks to ringmod/sync :)

Great release with nice codepr0n & excellent music!

I don't mind the coder colors. Only thing keeping me from vote 10 is the really raw logo, even in that resolution it could have been a little more readable, but that might also be a matter of taste.

@Oswald Thanks, I think it works pretty nice too. But there is lots of potential both in regards to optimizing speed and removing more of the artifacts.

been thinking myself of this trick, nice to see how little visual artifacts there are when some bobs are overlapping. a bit inaccurate, bobs are flickering when moving. nice job overall, in the design area aswell.
