How are those 10 sprites actually done?
I just saw this in a Youtube video and was stunned. $3fff shouldn't be able to change the data that fast in a proper manner? or am I mastaken?

I really enjoyed this demo and the final part was actually my favourite. So simple but effective. Just beautiful! Lovely tunes as well!

I really like the intro of Zenzations by Drax in the second part.
Overall nice transitions and graphics. A comfortable demo!

Feels fresh, but it has the disadvantage of being compared with Demode. Some nice tricks here and there, but not groundshaking. For being a fast party-compo-prod, it's really well done. Thumbs up for Clarence and his crew!!

Really nice demo but:
1) no kickin ass music like it was in Demode
2) mega demo-press space idea was not the best for this demo, the demo is without the power
3) sometimes the parts doesn't run after load (probably b'cos action replay:)
Keep rockin' Clarence :) kurva jo a demotok!

Well done combination of hardware sprites and bitmapped software sprites in the note file!

I really liked the feel of this one. The effects are subtle but effective. Thanks for pointing out the note Krill, I would've missed it otherwise.

Nice. But needs some fixing: It doesn't work on my C64C + 1541-II. Works on my C128DCR though.

EDIT: Tried another 1541-II, works now.

did everybody notice the 10 sprites per line in the lower border in the first part and the 10 sprites per line multiplexer in the note? :D

The intro is quite nice. This demo is quite a nice little adventure into old demo-style. It felt a bit short but still a nice unexpected release. The best yet from the Arôk party. The music from Drax and Fanta is quite funky and graphic from Leon is nice once more, would be interested to see him explore the X-FLI or SHIFLI formats.

Some nice parts here, atleast code and music wise, first part picture buildup is quite nice aswell. Abit boring bitmaps though.
