excellent work! I expected that, we'll see similar tricks like we can see here. I think there's a lot of possibilities mixing hires and multicolor (shame I don't have knowledge anymore to code anything, I would definitely try to do something - have a few ideas at least:D)

I absolutely love the logo. The rest is just icing on the cake, like all the 1x2 two-color fonts and colorful sprites. Looks deceptively simple, which makes it even better. And again such an Amiga feel to it!

Awesome logo and the music rules :)

These hires gfx rule hard. I think that technique will be copycatted alot in the future. And I´m surely not the only coder actually thinking about automating this to create 3 color hires fx.

Amazing visuals!

OK, now how about a mix of multicolour sprites with overlaid ECM hires with colours change on each rasterline? (via Hein's Warpzone+). Have I just invented a new gfx mode? :)

Even though I knew how it's technically solved, couldn't separate layers in my head and went bonkers/overheated - especially with... regular scroll area where masking looks most tricky :D It's just flawless! :)

Compyx is right, the logo uses multicolour sprites with a singlecolour char overlay: logo charlayer - logo spritelayer - combined. I added some extra char colours as well in the intro.

The balls use 2 sprites per ball, a multicolour sprite plus a singlecolour sprite on top, so each ball can have 2 unique colours: sprite balls

The scrollfont uses x-expanded singlecolour sprites with a singlecolour char overlay:
scrollfont overlay/underlay

Multi color sprites for the logo's with either charset or hires overlay. That would be my guess. Either way, very nice indeed.

I'm guessing a very clever combination of hires and multicolour sprites with hi-res bitmap and lots of sprite multiplexing, but even when I try to think about it I can't figure out exactly how you did it - truly awesome stuff and a really nice bit of music to go with it too - excellent.
