She looks very impatient and unrelaxed, what is she waiting for, bobbing her foot and tapping her fingers? A bit sidturbing :-)

Nice intro, i like especially the sound. The bottom scroller is very hard to read when it's scrolling imho. Good work actually! :)

I actually like the chick (focussing on the boobs here ;) and the consistent color scheme. Tune rocks too.
Overall the intro is a bit too messy for my taste though.

Thx again for all commenters and voters no matter what.

@Hammerfist: Thx to u 2, I fully understand the point of some critics. Just for explanation not for defense, that object ain't sprites, it's made of characters, supposed to represent a turning plane right before crashing... -> Mayday! ^^ All movement is supposed to be weird. I am weird, and so are most of my releases. But sometimes I compete nervertheless, not really for winning, just for fun.

Usually girls with that bust are called women, kids.

TheRyk, your girl-gfx conversion is pretty decent. I agree with Mermaid's criticism, but love it nonetheless. What's with that wacky sprite in the middle though? The oval+bar shaped thing that just moves from left to right? I like how it breaks up the field with all the text, but other than that.. -1 for the weird movement of the girl but +1 for using that old school 1x2 font with the black raster lines :D 7/10

Thx for feedback, no matter if positive or criticising.

Look at production notes for info about girl gfx.

@Death: But it _sounds_ more like ASC ;) Having used Fanta's great tune, I thought it was okay to label it a release _by_ ASC+MYD! _for_ Mayday! as some other intros in this competition. Originally, I wanted to do a hidden part, where palette changes to green and logo is replaced by ARSENIC, but ran out of time and RAM ;)

I like this golden style intro. The tune from Fanta fit perfect to it. Everything together makes a damn cool feeling.

The name is apt, since the raster colours and the font give a golden feel to it somehow! Cool!
