Nice entertaining production. The final tune by Linus is brilliant!

Yeah, I like the animation too and the music isn't too bad either ;-)
The most disturbing thing about this demo were the screen inits in between the parts. Couldn't you have kept $d011 and $d020 to #$00?

Linus, you're making me wanna dance. please add it seperately to csdb, so I can give it a 10 ;)

and now the demo, other tunes are from good to very good.

ppl complain about quality of the animations, but ahwell, I think its cool we get these type of demos these days aswell (cheers stuffie;). it adds some more color to the pallette of 64 demos, eventhough things still could and should be improved.

I really love the second tune in the demo, for some reason. Can't stop listening to it.. (if you run it in vice, turn off true drive emulation and the demo will stop at that tune)

the tune by linus contains some of the best programmed drums i've been allowed to listen to on a c64.

A bad surprise to see this reach the 3rd place from Unicorn (moral winner). The animation gfx have worse quality than some older animation demos I have seen (Reanim8ed). It didn't appealed to me.

The music is great but the rest? Sorry, but that's ages away from other "animated" demos like Reanim8ed. Street Tuf: Better stay on SuperCPU with those animations.

I can only second, third and fourth the statement below of the end-music being el porno grande! Awesome job, Linus!

btw: for those that enjoyed the tron video there's an outtake-d81-disk available at www.daupara.de/animatron/animatron_hidden_disc.d81

The last tune by Linus roxxorz! Overall impression, a bit slower pace due to loading times.

Too bad it's so blocky. Makes no match against Hitmen's "Reanim8ed", for example.
Luckily the music rescue the loss.

The music was very nice,especially the end tune.
The rest was a bit like: "WTF!,damn TV is fucking up,again".. ;)
Codewise it is probably not that bad though..
