Cycle - I did love this demo in 2004 and I love it today. I do not know why I did not wrote something here in 2004, maybe because
it was my comeback to the C64 scene year. But I remember when 'The Typhoon/FTS 2009' was at my place at that time around 2004 and
'The Typhoon' was so stunned from this demo, the amazing code and wonderful presentation with amazing effects and one worlds first
effect I guess, especially the awesome music did 'The Typhoon' and I really like.

The message in this demo is really sad, "Nostalgia Junkies... History Repeating Over and Over...I have to give it up...." but I
hope you never give up and nobody in the C64 scene give up, because we are all writing new C64 history and this demo Cycle
is one big part of New-C64-Scene history.

Truly one of the best demos i have seen on the C64. The music, design, gfx and effects fit so well together that its almost a pain :) Amazing work! You all involved did a great job!

Perfect done - face kick effects (love more 200pix twister and rotators with texture), cycling, code, msx and very smart linking

This is a fantastic demo. My favorite Booze demo, much thanks to the beautiful music (track 1). The lead melody at the vector part is so incredible nice.
The transitions are not too short or too long, the pace is perfect.

with soundtrack 1 this is one of my absolutedutely favs on the c64... a real beauty... with that music that is almost ugly but because it is so it is just the best in a way... hmmm... and the demo really kicks me in the side of my head alotof times... very very high class this one.

Thanx for a super production, I think this is the best you have ever done.

It's a cycle, it goes around and round and round... :)
But it's too short :(
I wished it would have lasted a tat longer, but maybe next time?! :D

I bet the next production will be called "Reverse" and you can press the back arrow to let it play the other way round?! That would be a world first & maybe a nice idea? :)

Anyway, the effects are great and the 1st tune is good :) maybe demo of year 2005, already? let's see :)

I've noticed that music is multispeed and I appreciate it so much. Although in my opinion soundtrack is the weakest element of the whole demo.

yes reveal the bastard. this demo is awesome! I really liked the twisters, gfx and smooth flow fade in/out, appearing of parts.

The person voting "1" on this must be a REAL greats coder/gfx:er/musician. Hope to see his/her productions soon.

Very impressive and fresh. Somehow Dane's handiwork stands out here. :) Only thing I would have liked more would've been some exact music syncs.
User Comment

Not as revolutionary as I would have come to expect from previous reviews but very slick looking. I think the addition of Dane to the team will prove to be a very smart decision.

@HCL: Haven't you read my comment on pouet? Yeah, 4-speed music with all borders open is impressive in itself, and on top of that I even think the routines would have rocked with just normal-speed tunes.

Really impressing. And I just realised Dane teamed up...
Note to myself: move to Sweden asap! ;)

It's great to hear such beautiful words about our demo, while traveling around in Vietnam on the holiday of my life! Many people have appreciated the music and nice design, but did anyone yet realize that the music is in quatro-speed!? That sort of explains the poor routines (@Groepaz ;-).. Thanx to everyone!

The most unique, artistical, designed C64 demo I have ever seen!!! Gfx and music are great! And all the effects are preety nice to watch too. Plasmas have done before but now with more colors and a logo in front. Rubber bars were very cool. My favoritest are the textures (finally with some big nice gfx!) and then the vector thingy. But the great stuff, is 3 musics, design, syncing, graphics. I watch it mostly with the 1st and the 2nd music. 1st seems to sync more and with better feeling with the transitions that show or make dissapear the gfx/colors. 2nd music seems to sync/change feeling exactly when the lyrics start to play, great feelings! 3rd seems to be something in beetween but not so hot. And the demo cycles too! I could let it play and play and play in a show forever!!! Finally a C64 demo that makes me feel horny again =)))

I love it. Great design, great flow, cool effects - HCL does it again! Now if only the graphics were done by JB instead of some converted pics ;-)

@HCL: Yes, we did realize that the music pieces are quattro speed, at least it came up on our infamous internal member mailing list.

The best surprise on a compo ever.
I was wondering what crew was at the party capable of doing such a brilliant work.... and would get such a track by dane... what a masterpiece, thanx!!!

WOOOOW!!! best design ever :-) thank you guys making my jaws drop! :) I havent felt this since years when watching a c64 demo, not even deus ex shocked me like this one :) Id like to vote 20 out of 10 %) Awesome shit!! :)

This may be the best demo ever! The effects looks soo cool, and the design is stylish all the way through (never seen before, as far as i remember). The fade in/outs brings an extra dimension to the design. The twister in the beginning just rulez!

[EDIT: now that my rush has gone, i realize that there are many other very cool demos :). But atleast this is one of the best]
