One of the best designed demos I've ever seen. Outstanding music with incredible synchronisation and a very cute atmosphere. An overlooked classic in my mind.

Great, impressive and sooo clean.
Gathers momentum with the second disk.

Slick demo. Some pretty cool routines here.

Another overlooked classic. I loved the music....typical XTD stuff. At least I think he composed it.

not bad (maybe a few too many precalced "effects"), also the music reminds me of the streets of rage series (sometimes)..

Wow, I had never seen this before, great demo! :-)

The reception was mixed? AfaIr, it did. Why? The story I heard on the scene was the following....
The Old Bulls (or later Tilt) fellows rarely played fair. This is good the example. They released this demo in a domestic copy-party in Poland with a dongle protection hoping to win. I do not remember what CP it was and were it took the place.
I remember the criticism with the greetings part - it was sth like licking Elite's ass part. It was really strange...
But why the dongle, you might ask? Because, as I was said back than, they were planning to release the demo (with some improvements) on famous The Party demo compo in order to win more money one more time.
Well, this is the past. Kiddies behavior I suppose (and hope so!).

As the demo itself - yes it's a nice prod, with some nice effects here.

If I recall correct, then this was the first polish demo I ever saw.

The music is just great at the part where the girl dances? Anywhere to find it separately?

Really nice prod. Nice design and nice music.

feels like a cheap and tasteless ripoff of the classics, half of the fx is animation the other half is lame. ugly colors.

the beginning is a bit clumsy, then it designs up to a really nice demo from poland for tp3!

4 years later, another memories came back...
As I previously wrote, the demo was prereleased (perhaps in a little different visual form) as dongle-protected on the Polish Autumn 1993 Copy Party. You already know, from my previous post, why the Old Bulls/Tilt crew did it. But.... there is a small question which still remains: why the demo is not listed in the final party results? And well, apparently (I wrote - apparently - since I do not remember exactly), the demo... either was lost by the organizers or they (Tilt) gave it too late for the compo.

The meandres of life, huh?...

...and here is a dongle-protected original release (ATTENTION: the link is not a good one).

Demo of course suxx! Music from XTD is fine.

Despite fakes it's still an awesome prod in my book, couple of great routines, awesome music and perfect sync.

The fact the 3D landscape is an animation does NOT disqualify the demo to be considered as a pleasant to watch.
Indeed, back in the days it was different, but it was also due to the fact we were kids...
And true, the OLB/TILT were sometimes unfair, but well... We knew that, they knew that too, the circle was spinning around ;)...

If today's ppl were just only cheating like the Old Bulls did... You know what I mean.

I'm not sure about that 3D landscape being real-time. But I don't care.
Nice demo! :]

A demo that would enter my top 5 Amiga OCS, and yet it is often unjustly forgotten. Very good music.

Fabulous, always loved this one!

Does this demo have a good design? sometimes, although for me, too many cheap effects transitions from wedding video editing programs here.
Does it have good effects? no, most of it is animation, or poor 2d deforms
Does it have good music? Yes
In summary, 1.5 points for plus, 2 for minus (one for poor code, the other for being lame)
Piggy with minus

The demo itself is quite ok. The first time I saw it was on Polish Autumn 1993 party. It won the demo compo, but it was hardware copy protected.
Tilt said they will release final version after the party - and they did, at The Party 1993 (with some changes).
This attitude sucks and hence the rating.
You can read more about this case in The Charts #13
