Have to say it again ... the soundtrack rules. Very bold to unleash heavy prog rock riffs on our beloved sid.

Though the music sounds a bit System of a Down'ish, it doesnt quite work for me. Design and codewise it looks good for the most part, a bit short though.

Fan vad fint. Jag blir rörd. This is the way to way to drag a slipsten. Pure emotion straight through and with a fantastic soundtrack. You're the pride of the swedish scene with your constant improvements.

really like this one-man-show. feels quite anarchic in style and the music catched me. the graphics though... well... are not my type.

Great kefrens bars and coherent design. The soundtrack ... hah! Sounds like King Crimson meets Fantomas. Great.

This seems to be a bit underrated, I really liked it. Both the style and some of the effects -- those blending kefrensbars, hell yeah! Keep it up radiantx, muy excellente demo! :)

Thanks everyone.

As for "well known effects": Kefrens bars with additive blending is to the best of my knowledge a world first. Nothing "well known" there. :-)

The blitter stuff has probably been done a zillion times before, and it's also the oldest code in this demo... Nothing to talk about really.

The moving cylinders with multiplexed sprites is some kind of DYCP, but I can't tell how "different" it is since I have never ever looked at any kind of DYCP code other than the code I wrote for that part.

yago: I released my first trackmo in 2005; this is my fourth. :-)

I liked the part with bars scrolling. As for old fx re-used.. I'm sure there isn't much now left or isn't a variant of something else. Although of course thankfully someone comes along and changes that =) . nice demo though

Like many said; the transparent kefrens bars is top of the pop to me. Coherent design and freshness!

Nice use of (mostly) well known effects in new clothing. My favorite bit was the screen where the ball shaped multiplexed sprites in an ellipse shared the screen with those moving pipe type graphics. I liked the motion contained in that part.

Some retro stuff here, with the multiplexed balls.
The kefrens bars are indeed nice but the most stylisch to me was the green screen with the worms.

Unusual indeed! However, my expectations were a little too high this time...
