Demo for VIC-20 w. at least 16kb memory expansion.
Just a quick hack done in a couple of weeks and rushed to make it to the Sundown compo.
Short and boring black loadingscreens - I know! :)

Nice demo, in 1991 style, with cool music & graphics!

Good demo, best in the compo for me.

YouTube video, captured from real HW.

If you prefer to watch it in an emulator like VICE, make sure you set it to 16k or 24k expansion (block 1/2 or 1/2/3) but no block0 3k expansion enabled (VIC20 memory expansion scheme is severly retarded)...

Nice and smooth, but perhaps a touch of innovation or eccentricity might do the trick sometimes..
rulez added on the 2008-09-14 16:29:33 by Preacher Preacher
it is cool. but as elsewhere says, some crazyness would be good.

Big scrollers, dots, boobies, great tune (of course original would be preferred though :)).. Only dragons are missing ;)

Nice demo with cool effects and lovely music!
