Demos for standard Amiga 1200?

category: general [glöplog]
Recently acquired an Amiga 1200 and fitted it with a Gotek drive.
Now I'm looking for demos that actually run on this machine, unfortunately most "AGA"-releases needs harddrive+060 CPU+lots of fast-RAM, so filtering by that doesn't help much.

So far I've enjoyed Roots by Sanity and the incredible Nexus-7 by Andromeda (one of the best demos ever).
Any more recommendations?

I recall that there were some OCS/ECS releases lately that needed a 020 and 1 or 2 mb chip which I guess would work fine on this machine as well, but I can't recall the demonames or the groups that made them.

Also, you can try some Dekadence demos like Are We Dead yet? and Sliced & Diced (this last not an AGA demo but it's cool and must work fine).

Lech by Freezers, a must to see!
Control & Vision by Oxygene, real masterpieces!
Switchback by Rebels.
Origin by Complex, one of the first AGA demos and still rocks!

also: Syndrome by Balance
The breath of the muse by Chryseis
Qed 2 by Talent

They are all optimized for stock A1200 and should run with a fine framerate.

Emptyhead by Rednex
Quackbusted 2 by Rednex
Impulse 2 by Tilt & Old Bulls

Big Time Sensuality by Axis
Picturebook by Axis

Also runs fine on standard A1200

Maybe filter by platform and order by date then? I suppose most of the older releases (as this thread shows) would work on the original configuration, and most modern stuff requires a 060 etc.
Omg, I still missed some of these demos, remember the earlier days I bought an A1200 just for the demos, and sold it for a Dreamcast. Maybe I should buy another one again.

The Team Hoi Saga of course. I believe those were the first ever AGA demos. They claim so at least:

Thanks all for your suggestions! Lots of great productions that will make some nice demowatching nights. :)
