Probably the only production for the compo, but I have no official info.
Quite ok intro, but nothing special

Crashes somewhere in the middle of the intro. Nice to see pictures in an intro again though :)

Yes, it was the only entry in the introcompo :D Imho, not particulary stuning, but I like the picture usage as well... and remember, it's italian :)

If only the download URL worked...

this has some potential but at least i found the music and design (in every way) quite bad.

Oh my...this is absolutely what I wasn't expecting from Scoopex. Gfx and music were quite horrible and there wasn't any design.

I liked their Amiga stuff waaaay better than the newer pc shiaat :/

Thumbs up just because this was released at the smaller "party" ever (well to be honest it wasn't a scene party at all, and 15000 visitors means it wasn't that small). We organized the scene compos and I've been glad to see Scoopex releasing something for Webb.it

they seem to have an eye for design =)

well, if they have an eye for design it's probably a lazy eye. or a black eye. [insert your own pun here]

Loading... crash. WinXP, Geforce2Ti, P3/1,4G, Detonators 23.11, DX 8.1 etc etc...

pro: it actually worked.
con: music and gfx are horrible, and the effects (except the overused crashzoom) are '97-level. suckz is probably a bit harsh, but I wouldn't feel good rarting it as ok - is an ok first prod, but from scoopex and in 2002, people should be able to expect better stuff.

a picture by acryl can be horrible ? dood...
long time i havent seen such good picture in a 64k...

I was a big fan of Scoopex productions on my Amiga 4000, and was looking forward to see this intro. Unfortunately, all I experienced was the "diamondie effect," whereby the demo immediately crashes upon startup. Bleah...

Very nice and innovative effects and nice atmospheric music.

Aaaand it doesn't pause or crash when another task gets the focus ... great for us dualhead users =) So I can chat on the other screen while the demo is running =)

The ending sucks though.

bad. the only good thing is acryls pic, the rest is utterly annoying.

The blue knot of the title had a glitch.. so did a lot of the other stuff. Music started like it might be good, but the high hats gave me a headache and the bass at the end was ear crushing.

Definately recommended if you're a big fan of zoom blur, otherwise maybe its worth missing.

design is pretty lame. Effects are buggy(for example the metaballs). Doesn't sync well to the music.

Logo GFX is really acrylish, sfx is not bad, fits the atmo/colours.
