"The Killer" of a Demo at these days, even..

I always liked AEG's 'raw' style effects. They're great for the SID techno that usually accompanies them and just the thing if you're feeling trippy.
I wish there was a bit more polish but I'm not complaining. I am allergic to typos though. The one at the beginning is blatantly obvious.

Thumbs up for AEG and his peeps. Given, i'ts not EoD (then again, what is?).
AEG's code is solid. The design is good and the soundtrack works very well. It would have deserved some better GFX. I like the typfaces though.

Nothing mindbending, but still top notch!

I liked this demo a lot. I'm just a casual viewer who doesn't give a fsck about how recycled the effects are. All together it went wonderfully and the soundtrack is one of the best ones out there.

Cool! I dont care about recycling. AEG has done alot of crazy routines on the c64. And I like it!

Unlike most people, I actually liked it... maybe the gfx are not top notch, but that actually fits with the style of the demo... some effects (the one in the screenshot and the 'plasma fountains') I already saw being previewed on Oxyparty. (okay, not officially, but I've seen it and I couldn't wait untill the release).

Was a bit too bad that the plasma looked choppy... well, it just diddn't seem right anyways... and also the blue twister... it kinda fell out of place between the rest of the gloomy and darker gfx.

Very cool take on including effects into graphics: many effects are embedded (even dimensionally) into gfx or the gfx reach into the effects, some improved and known AEG routines (I love the vectoranim-player used in the beginning and in the nessy part). A good one, but a little unpolished (and I don't mean the typo in the beginning, this one I actually like..) eXecute overdrive I like bettre. Smash Designs for wolrd leadaship!

Nice demo. The pics overlaid with an effect looks very good. Loved the "state of the art" intro! :)
I don't usually like static pics in demos, and there were a bit much of that imo. It was also a byte like
much of it was seen before.

seems that the relocated version made them audibly.

This was hell of a cool demo. Some nice graphics, very amazing effects (like in any Smash Designs demo) and ground breaking soundtracks.

I guess everything is said about this demo .
A great dissapointment in my opinion.
It would have satisfied me more if it had better (or non-wired) graphics.

A wolrd of technology is a hostile wolrd, and a wolrd without too much polish. I'm glad to see that they are into recycling in this wolrd, though.

I like Smash demos and I respect AEG but I'm afraid after many years, there is not much improvement. I liked the new ideas and effects but rest was so 95ish.

most of the gfx were sloppy and too much effect recycle but the effect in the screenshot looked good.

That nasty spelling error right at the start clearly represents how unpolished and austere the Smash demos usually are.

/.../we are living in a wolrd/.../

Despite the sloppy and hasty work in the intro text, with one of the most common spelling errors, it was a entertaining demo with some wonderful screens!
