Yeah, this is a really great demo, and it's especially good due to the musics from Rapido.

Dbug : The wonderful musics are not composed by Rapido but Scavenger !!!

It's one of the best ST demos ever.

The long 3D part (20 mins if i'm not wrong) is really nice and music synchronised !
The game Crapman (pacman clone) is really well done and is filled with great levels.
There's also some multiparts in the megademo.

Notify that the musics won't probably sounds as it should on emuls as it uses a sid technik which hasn't been emulated right by now.

all the dune are done by Scavenger, most beautiful Sid ever on St :)
and my favorite musician...

fokk everything exept this, but equinox still owns it.

The main menu and Crapman only would deserve a "rulez", fortunately the rest of the demo is really good as well (like the introduction screens of the 3d part) !
I can't really see the point of the "Pajero" part though :/

That demo is simply brilliant ! (music and gfx). But as a coder, I have to underline the code quality !! Especially the Rapido 3d code is very impressive and contains a lots of new technics ! I really like the "log 3d transform" optimized rout in the "dessert part". (3d dots). Really impressive code ! (Adding to that, I meet Rapido at ST-Niccc and he's a very nice person !)
ATARI rules !!!

Damn,. it's good!
rulez added on the 2002-12-09 14:09:49 by Optimus Optimus
great music(s) by scavy, very efficient and original code by rapido, perfect presentation.

my only comment would be that it has some 3d routs repeated for eternity. still, they are great even if they're shown too long.

a classic and a source of inspiration!

Even without a single effect or picture this demo would get thumbs up. Scavenger is just an amazing chipmusican..
rulez added on the 2003-06-15 12:31:35 by evil evil
Quite a large portion of good ST music comes from this demo.

its a perfect megademo.. synergy impressed me so much :)
rulez added on the 2004-10-04 01:05:32 by fiveofive fiveofive
It has that SID sound that was used also in a recent Speccy demo trying to play SID sounds. That music rulez! I didn't figured that before, prolly because it's too long and I passed through the parts..

Never thumbed this one?! Shame on me.

One of the best demos on the Atari ST:
- great code (fast 3D, too bad the 3D screen becomes quickly boring)
- great design
- some of the best Atari ST chiptunes ever

Too bad it had this not-so-cool main menu instead of the usual trackloading most Atari demos used to have since 1992.

Just noticed that 12 people were involved in this one, I did not remember synergy was so crowded ;)

Where's my vote? (I'm was sure I gave it)
The main menu rulez
The 3D part is long but there's also a sweet dessert part :)
Crapman is a great clone.

the 3d screen zik is ... wow!

Still love that massive amount of incredible Scavenger stuff in it. Great classic Megademo with imo the most powerful Intro.

Music- and design-wise, this is one of the best ST demos ever.

Pacman sucks....next to Crapman. :D
It's the only Pacman-type game with a story,
and thanks to Scavy, the best soundtrack.

This is what made me buy an ST.

Hi, this is Arcade of Synergy. Great to see the scene again. I just love all the comments here on Pouet! Especially the Crapman comments which was my one contribution to the demo -> leveldesign. Shame that we lost contact with each other over the years. I only have contact with Zanac at the time so... any Syns out there?
rulez added on the 2010-06-15 21:57:07 by Arcade Arcade
Hey Arcade... nice to see you on pouet :) Well the only sign of life we heard was from Scavenger and Wingleader. Maybe you should check out Atari Forum too :)

WORKING LINK for diskettes version:
Lo_Tek: seems like it was a problem of RAM. Hmmm. Now I have 14Mb in Falcon - and the demo works fine.
Actually I'm listenning to it NOW. :)
Ah well. :)
best musics ever made on Atari ST, Scavenger RULEZ! \:D/

Can't believe I nevr thumbed up this master piece, yet I'm listening to one of Scavenger's awesome tunes atm ! By the way I'm looking for mp3 of the wicked polygons parts. Guess I'll find them one way or another but feel free to reach me if you can help :)

This megademo delivers all that makes the Atari scene such a valuable place!
