Nice small demo! As a real intro it would be a failure, but as a standalonr it's cool.

Cool effect, nice how it responds to the music. It seems like this is being terribly underrated… My only criticisms are that there is no nice font and that this shouldn’t be an intro but a demo.

Very fresh background routine. Pity that logo hasn't stayed for good in the screen ;)

The compiler now shows: $0801-$3e94 more or less small empty areas inbetween. Thats $3e94 minus $0801 = $3693 bytes. Add that to screenmem £3693+$3e8 = $3a7b. The area around $2040 to $2880 is clean because else it crashes by unknown reasons. Dunno if it has something to do with the musicplayer. But $3a7b should fit the rules unless I've missed something. Added space-check in credits as well.

Sorry, still not valid. RAM usage is $0400-$4628. Screen RAM counts as used mem. Please add SPACE check in credits display as well.

Fixed. Did some cleanup, but the mainloop code needed to be aligned to a hi-mem address, so i puted it in $3000. the area from $2616-$2fff are free then, but I think it should fit the RAM-usage now.

Appears more like a dentro with multiple parts than a classical intro. Walking the borderline ragarding this rule. Memory rule kicks it out... for now.

Very good idea, works for me. Too bad you put various stuff at too distant locations. 0800-0e00 could be free apart a small snippet of few bytes at $0d80 (WHY?) then $1b70-$1fff, $2080-$27ff, $3e30-$47ff are all free and unused. The charset at $4800 and textscroller at $5500-$5700 can be squeezed inside the unused areas for sure. Fix it and you can add a v2 which can compete =)
