Haven't seen this until now. This is really good, and a surprise. Big fat dick up! Didn't know you could code like this Hein. Multi-talent. And music is just mega-ace. Fred is too underrated.

i somehow managed to miss this when it came out. it's just as if the mutants tune was done for this one instead, excellent! :)

almost impossible to believe this is from the same person who did boris converts for dutch breeze... from pixelpushing to cyclepulling, amazing and very entertaining

An interesting interpretation, carried out in a fast pace; from other original examples made during the 80: ies. I lift my hat, cut my tie and say thanks!

Really nice and well orchestrated with the music Hein. Although I like the Mutants track I think I would have liked to of seen a "100% Hein production" with some of those tracks you've produced lately. Great work!

Nice one, Hein!
I like the fact that it's not just variations to sinus offsets, but real different movements and configurations.

About time we had some more 'trippy', 'chillout' demos. The music from Mutants is a truly awesome choice and suits the line tracking sprite effects. Love the hires overlay sprites later on. Also, have you made line anti-aliasing on some of the draw effects? The colours look just fine. LOVE IT! :D

Cool, maybe a little too screensaverish, but the tune gives it a nice oldskool feel, and the amount of different movements is also a plus.

Nice release. I agree on the strange colors comments, it almost seems like a monochrome line drawing routine is used on a multicolor bitmap.

nice code, crazy shapes.

nice code, but the colors are a bit odd... although this may have been intentional.

Not saying it's bad, just odd.. :_) and I like odd :_)

Bloody brilliant.

Edit: and the color combinations rock. Rock I tell ya!

Excellent demo with a great atmosphere, reminds me of 85/86 graphics demos (which were a lot slower of course).
User Comment
Submitted by Jammer on 19 December 2007
indeed, some combinations are risky, to put it mildly, but i believe in hein's taste :D

yummy. fast and pretty, although I have to agree with ptoing on some of the color combos used. this demo reminds me of those compunet demos with almost endless animated sprite sinus variations.
User Comment
Submitted by Jammer on 19 December 2007
damn, it's fast! the best effect of this type i've ever seen, definitely :D
User Comment
Submitted by ptoing on 19 December 2007
I like it. Would make a nice screensaver :D

Only gripe is that in some bits the colourcombos are a tad garish.

Wow. The screenshots sure looks beautiful. Will check it out on the real thing later tonight.

Great demo, definitely a "keeper". Minimalistic, yet successfully artsy. Good design work. It just reinforces my desire to get a PAL C64 one day!
