Ah no! Thanks, but I didn't mean that. :D
It's just that the sprites I found in the mem said "Hedge of Disgrace" and I wondered why it wasn't on the screen. I'm running Vice 3.1 still, so it was maybe a hidden feature or just a bug not shown in the emulator.
BTW love that rotation!

@Joe: i took a few shortcuts with this just out of pure laziness. I use 4x9 regular multicolour sprites for one part (using green=transparency, black, white and yellow). All other colours are done with single colour x-expanded sprites. The latter “just” fit within a 48px wide area - so I was able to place 3 sprites all the way down, overlaid onto the multicolour layer, and I just need to update the Sprite indices and the colours. The 8th Sprite is used for the donuts of course.

The laziness comes from that this method gave me a fixed number of exactly 8 sprites on every line - making my raster timing simple. I could’ve coped with variable numbers of course - but this was intended just as a very quickly hacked together example for the compo ;-) .. the other act of laziness was that I could of course have also done the trousers with a colour split on the multicolour layer sprites ... but, yeah, I had other projects I wanted to get back to so just did this the quickest way I could ;-)

I love sprites and screens which uses them in a great way!
This is no exception so I got a bit curious about how things were resolved and pressed freeze on the Action Replay cartridge (well, not really since I don't use the real hardware anymore) but found those sprites there in the memory. Do I miss something on the screen? Been warping it fastforward for ever but where is the textline? :D
Nice work!

Sasq: this is just a cheap demo ... it doesn't deserve to be in the top 500, let alone the top 10 ;-) .. that said, looking around at some of the other entries in the top 10, maybe it does deserve to be here ;-p

Wil: if you stare at them long enough, you’ll eventually see that they’re my poor attempt at drawing rolling donuts ;-)

And... I wouldn’t look for a hidden message any longer if I were you ;-)

Great work! After watching this now for some time I'm wondering... do the disc sprites carry some meaning, do they spell out a text? Or are they just rotating into a random position?

Fantastic release but not really Booze standard. We would have had 2px thick black bars.
