@Jak T Rip: hey my friends..there is no rules for demos :) demo making is art !, one can take a music which have been done 20 years ago (used/unused doesn't matter) , and the other can use unreleased music. this guy who made the demo already told he made some of the parts a long time ago , so maybe this was the music in the time he started the demo. this is amazing demo in every aspect :) nothing can decrease from this experience

Nice pace. The dot tunnel is ace and I also like your in between lyrics.
I heard the music in too many demos already, for me a demo like this needs a new exclusive music. That is part of the game.
I always wanted to make a center flamer, and now you did it! Thumbs up!

If this is what you can do in only one file by yourself, then I am afraid to see what you can do in a full demo :p

Excellent debut. Much has already been said below, but I do want to add that the sequencing of the first few minutes to the music was also beautifully done. Bravo!

I did have vague plans for a part char/part realtime rect tunnel myself, but I think you've already got this one covered now. Seriously fiddly to get right, and you got here first. Again, nice work!

Axis: no one is worth of your plot crown.

Bob: I put some of my background in the Trivia. No other computing background, except a little bit of assembly on the PC. I coded a Mars.exe clone, a plot ball bouncing on a mirror, and my first fire effect on the PC in 1999, again for my own entertainment. No other scenes or machines. I don't even speak Java or C, or any other exotic languages.

Sparta, I echo the compliments below. Fully deserved.
BTW, do you know that you are well on the way to making this game on the C64? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kn5d4dijlfw

Wow, this is what I call a debut. What lovely fire FX. And everything in 1 file. I also have to hand the crown for the best plot tunnel over to the new plotter king in town. Hope to see more of this in the future.

two parts of this demo (EOR-fill tunnel, and dot tunnel) were actually written in SMON
you are officially crazy :)

WOW, thank you guys for the warm welcome and all the overwhelming positive comments. I really wasn't expecting this. :) I added a summary and some trivia about the demo.

JackAsser: You are too close to your screen. Take a few steps back and it will look much less chunky. :)

Glasnost: Your parts in One Year Camelot inspired my to learn machine code 25+ years ago. I very much appreciate your comment.

Hexworx: My favorite, too.

Sith: I did not know this game, certainly, very similar effect. Where did you find my photo? I am not on any social media... :)))

Mekong: You got the message right! (No, I didn't lose my pills.)

Everybody else: Thanks again for all your great comments!

Maybe Sparta was inspired by this:
Quite impressive bringing 16bit effects to our beloved 64. The dot tunnel is also really smooth but the other tunnels are what really gives me a rush.
Also, those flames... gorgeous!

Get knocked off your sox because...

Now that is quite an entrance to the scene. As MK's Scorpion would say: "Welcome! Get over here!"

And one of my absolutely loved SID's was used (i had it a very long time as cellphone jingle and perhaps in the next time again).

Very, very good, Sparta/OMG.

This deserves way more praise and comments. It is a debut, it is great, it is onefile, it is not so artsy-fartsy and thus fantastic :-D More of this please!

The radial fire is a great idea! Albeit a bit chunky, still a great idea. I can imagine better variants in 4x4-mode etc that will look really awesome.
