The amout of real realtime coding without any precalc or animation trickery in this one is breathtaking.

Never seen it before, love the usage of colours and it comes with some really nice design and effects. Last but not least a lovely soundtrack!

Guys, I really love your style. Highly enjoyable demo. The vectors and morph stuff were really sweet. Loved the pirate pic too. And the vector aspirin for your hangover; hahaha brilliant. :)

"Only 8 years ahead of it's time" ;)

I recently watched this one again and this is what came to my head, thinking about all those recent 'hires revival' demos. I guess some trends need time to settle in :)

Some of the parts are uber-stylish and some are really not. But overall its a sweet ride.

the thing is: it has nice vectors, they are high res, they are colored, but it has a very cool music, it's well synched. It's simple.....it's a real nice and consistent work!!!

Nice demo with very cool codingwork.
But the whole demo misses that "WOW!"-factor due to the slow speed.
Also I heard better tunes by Randall and Jammer.
Gfx are so-so.

freestyler / agemixer is the best example so far imho.

Krill: Well maybe a bit exaggerated, but the best attempt i have heard so far. Any other tune you could recommend?

hey fenek, did you took a peak at plastic kiss when coding one of the lineroutines? ;)

Now this is very unique in terms of visual style. Those hi-res effects are really cool and so fast! The music is bloody good, too! It's great to witness the C64 evolve...
User Comment

Really nice demo. Zzap69: To say that the tune actually pronounces something is somewhat exaggerated - try letting someone recognize the meaning of the "said" things without him watching the same printed on screen. And there are quite a number of sid tunes using that ring modulation technique to let the sid utter something that at least has the right intonation on what is tried to be pronounced.
User Comment
Submitted by ZZAP69 on 21 October 2006
Cool effects, superb interaction with music. A stupid question maybe, but i must ask one last time: the tune does really pronounce "sweet infection" without any samples?

Simply love it!

PS: Can't stop moving to that fucking Randall-Sound. You're my hero!

Kongratuluje, Fenek, moja kolega!
Finally it's out, and all Fenek code :)
Well, I personally don't like the design much, I think bimber is best on hires, and arise had its greatest moment also in hires style :) (the hires-6-screen-pic-rules!) And technically it's great. I especially love the butterfly, but there are many innovative ideas.
I hope I'll manage to get to a major NP one day, and yes, it's about time for the Polish scene to hit back...

Great work guys. Fresh design,good music and graphic. I hope it's not last one from you Fenek. Well done.

Oswald: of course it's hires chars, and not hires bitmap. The point is that it's hires and not multicolor, and still manages to be colorful and fast.

Submitted by Burglar on 20 August 2006
the producers of this one must've been following csdb a lot: Hires + Speech Synthesis.

anyway, really cool demo. thumbs up

finally creative codings again, fenek u're my hero :) checked the code a bit, very clever: what looks fullscreen hires they actually use char mode :) and the intro tune actually tries to pronounce "sweet infections" ;) thumbs up!

something different for a change. next to randalls tune i especially liked the tune by jammer in here, he chose a nice way of doing more metallic sounding vox. domo arigato pan roboto.

I second Blackdroid, the parts are really slow paced, something opposite of what I'd call a dynamic flow. However, the design is fresh and I appreciate the effects as well.

I found it to be rather boring. some nice effects, but boring.

I love that it's all hires (or at least looks like it :), and clever use of expanded sprites. Fresh design, and very polished.
