at least its fast. but music is cheesy, effects arn't any good and all in all its too chaotic without any concept..

I could see it now an a 68030. The landscape part was really nice, but also the other stuff isn't bad

This demo was great, and i love the musics & ambiance

Saw it at BP03, floored me. Loved the music long before I saw it - and in '97 I was wondering where the good stuff was - I forgot to check my Amiga roots...

The poor grasshopper! Why should we kill digital animals all the time?

I remember seeing this one at Assembly 97, and still loving it!

I love this demo. Runs great on 030! Relic was such a disappointment after this (and no, i'm not kidding). Classic demo!

excellent demo and as xeron states above, it runs great on 030. Jam & Spoon did a great job with the music too.

Good one.

One of my alltime favourites! But I think Relic is Nerve Axis' best though ;) Must have watched this one several hundred times....

This is much better than Relic!

how fitting, considering the fact that mark spoon died last night.

This is just Awesome.


the fxs rock hard and I belive there were some original ideas.

I can never forget the nerves when this was running in the demo compo at Asm 97 - fingers crossed all the way that it wouldn't guru = Heart was beating like a drum and bass rhythm! ;) Crash/NVX

It's not just the style, the music or great quotes like "nobody does nostalgia anymore the way it used to be", but also several effects and 3d which are very original and impressive.

watched this one a good few times, and still liking it :)

YES YES YES YES... oh... caps lock :)

This blew me away back then.
Among my top-10 all time favourite Amiga demos.

Traditional, yet fresh in its style. A feel-good demo.

They just don't make nostalgia like they used to... *sigh*

Music makes this demo and me moving always I see it. Very positive demo full of nice gfx, one of my favourite.

Love watching that one ! Cool fx and music, with good sync and design. The most impressive Nerve Axis demo (find it better than Relic). The second part rocks !

rush of summer!

Great, fast paced demo, one of my favourites in the 90's. Loved the music and effects are very smooth on real Amiga.

A bit cheesy with the scene poetry/lyrics but all in all very thumbable.

Nice! D'n'B show! :D
rulez added on the 2012-09-10 22:38:50 by Sir_Lucas Sir_Lucas
I love this one... Running fast and fitting nicely with fantastic DnB tracks. No rough switching from one part to another but nice fade-over... No re-make effects but really good ideas, like that unique ship-underwater-scene, or the "boat in the water" with stunning waves - just impressive. Certainly thumb up for one of my all time favorites with great effects and one of the best examples for speed on 68030! Respect!

Great demo. I love it in every aspect, second part music rocks!

Remember being a member of Nerve Axis back when this one was done (had no part in it though but watching them make it). Still think this is my favourite one of the demos.

Watched this again now just cos you commented. That silly boat :D

And the yummy strange zik and chrome ball trails. Must... resist... drunk-CDC... :)

Well, lots of parts, effects.
rulez added on the 2015-10-08 09:12:22 by lvd lvd
some very nice parts but somewhat lacking in concept. cool grasshopper, so-so music. feels like it maybe wanted to be a pc demo. on the other hand, i bet it kind of impressed the pc guys of the era. anyhow, clearly a thumb.
rulez added on the 2016-09-07 23:04:51 by lennart lennart
Lots of parts, transitions and stuff going on all the time so it's quite entertaining!

Those bubbles above the landscape at the end really seem to reflect their surroundings quite faithfully!

I like the env/smooth voxel twister bump!

Hear the drummer the dance floor is rap!

nice drum and bass demo with some cool effects, also that Nike NRX Spoof at the end :D

Back in the day these guys came out of nowhere.
Still one of my all-time faves, lots of pace, lots of effects, a cool soundtrack and runs well even on a 030.
