Flex and Thunderblade thanks for nice comments, those were the days! And now we have Tubescroller II coded by Proton/FIG. Fantastic job man!

@ThunderBlade: imagine us youngsters lurking behind FCS when he showed THAT scroller for the first time (hey, I've got something to show you boys).. We were like "WTF!! This guy is both genius & God at the same time". ...while trying to lift our jaws back from the floor. :-) A true scene-moment I will always cherish. <3

I saw this demo for the first time today. The first tune - wow - I have heard so many times before but I wasn't aware that it was released in this demo first. And then of course the part with THAT scroll... guys this was 1988! Others played with raster splits! Oh, this too. ;)
Anyway, straight 10 from me. :)

Evil writes in scrolltext: "Yeah, it's me, the uncle-Evil. Amiga side of Finnish Gold has now new team called 'ACCESSION' takes the crown! But when you wanna greet us, greet under Accession . Yeah, but we still friends, right pals. Ouch, why are you hitting me? - Just kidding. "

This is one of my great memories from back then. The demo was great but the music ... oh, the music. The intro tune is fantastic and one of my personal all time favorites.

I can still remember myself as a 14 years old boy at the (B)Grendel-party in 1988 when I heard these tunes for the first time when Contest-Demo was released. I always get back to those moments when listening these tunes. What a nostalgy-trip again and again..

Thanks for the overwhelming positive comments about my tunes. 3rd tune was composed by FCS, He Is the One and Only FCS. He is The Legend.

Top notch, this demo must have the highest concentration of the most awesome future composer musics ever. Rock rocks so damn hard!

On a side note, did anyone notice the similarity of the dycp text in Wisdom and this one ?

This has always been one of my favourites; a series of very nice parts, with the brutal corkscrew scroller never having been bettered since.
