darn, just why nobody rates it? is OK
added on the 2001-10-05 17:06:56 by raver raver
Actually it's more than OK... For me it just rules because of its excellent design throughout the whole demo and its wonderful pics by Cyclone.
Muffler's tune is cool but it's not really my taste, and I think some other kind of music could have fit better...
rulez added on the 2001-12-08 20:15:33 by exocet exocet
exocet: actually your opinion about the music is the same as of 95% of Abyss. Unfortunately cyclone and me belonged to the other 5%.
By the way: In the background of the picture above you can actually see a penis-object which makes this demo rated 18yrs+!
Secret parts:
I) Remove a disk from any floppy at the start-requester.
II) Watch the end-scroller three times (very hard).

nice demo.stylish, well timed, too bad it didn't won (deserved it). :)

isn't only the endtune done by muffler?
always thought the rest would be from bay tremore...
rulez added on the 2002-02-06 11:18:58 by teo teo

yeah it is a demo i keep on my hd but the music isn't nice indeed.. also its a bit too hecktic - done in an oldskool way (or should i call it midskool?), which is fine with me but in this case causes.. disbalance aaaaarghh bla bla bla this demo ain't easy at all to describe (:

Very slightly remixed good quality mpeg version (47mb) can be downloaded here.

Very nice production! Great fast effects and great gfx. The music? Mmmm...still wondering if it fits or not :). But very good overall!
rulez added on the 2002-05-09 12:18:43 by z5 z5
It's rocks. Because of the music.
rulez added on the 2003-01-31 13:30:46 by tomaes tomaes
Yeah, a very nice demo. I also think the music fits good with the effects. Good work!

I love it!!
rulez added on the 2003-02-01 20:08:46 by ghandy ghandy
well, there COULD be a bit more effects, other than that, just rulez.
rulez added on the 2003-02-01 21:23:54 by dodke dodke
i love those "cozy" amiga-ish colors, and the demo features some of the best cyclone graphics, who is my absolute favourite graphician on any platform anyway...
though the music was not that fitting, and the end was too sudden, a solid thumb up!
rulez added on the 2003-02-02 21:47:26 by dipswitch dipswitch
cool effects. nice gfx by Cyclone. The music is very good. Well the bad point is the end wich makes it look unfinished.
rulez added on the 2003-02-02 23:16:36 by MooZ MooZ
good gfxs
bad music
old fashionned effect
empty design
bad end
Like most demos from Abyss, this is incredibly well designed. The gfx are tremendous, as are the effects. And though I'm not a Muffler fan, I think the tracks work very well.

this demo is full of good stuff.. lovely graphics by cyclone. I also like the tunnel routine a lot even if it is a bit coarse. Cool idea. I want to make a birds eye view voxel too.. Oh.. and that second tune kicks major ass.. and the third is really nice.. and the first is cool..

really stylish visuals, original code, and nice music

fast 030 routines together with very good gfx BUT... for me a real highlight is the music, especially the second part that starts slowly with the credits but kicks on in a very very very good shape... i can't but bang to it when it kicks!!!!
rulez added on the 2005-10-29 21:11:22 by winden winden
and i gotta agree with most of you about the music. the second tune is slightly better but i guess that's thanks to bay tremore. :)
added on the 2005-11-16 18:13:49 by chavez chavez
nice. especially first part music

Abyss always knew how to make classy Amiga demos rather than low quality PC demos requiring 060s and FPUs and shit to run.

Excellent demo that stands the test of time!

Still like this one, nice graphics and effects. The music however is absolutely not my cup of tea. Track in the first part is somewhat OK but the 2nd part tune is nothing but annoying.
rulez added on the 2010-12-16 19:49:59 by StingRay StingRay
What? why all these complaints on the music. It rules as much as the demo itself. Major thumb from me. (And the demo should have won!)

Lovely weird voxel stuff.
rulez added on the 2017-05-15 14:26:02 by Preacher Preacher
Fucking excellent music and especially pixel graphics. Would be better without any effects, save for maybe one or two of the plane deformations (like the last one that actually had nice colors).
rulez added on the 2017-06-11 12:24:38 by noby noby
Liked the effects and graphics.

Must say I've always hated those gaps in the 3d voxel things...

I always liked the Cyclone pic with the Garden of Eden theme, where a boy and girl with creepy eyes point to an apple on a tree, whilst some evil-looking dude encourages them to take it.

Great demo in any case!

"Secret parts:

I just noticed this... Can this be done in an emulator? Anyone youtubed it? I could perhaps ship my amiga from Norway to China, but I'm worried it'd get lost/destroyed on the way somehow. :)
