yep, cool! i think this demo is in the same field as suretrip (ie very good). there seem to be a bit less screens this time, but the presentation is alot better. i also truly love the music by 505! great pixels by mod.
oh yeah, ofcourse: excellent cyclekilling code!

Thumb up for the fullscreen rotozoomer. Hopefully the final version will have some better pallettes and textures (I think that the rotating tunnel scene was ruined by the ugly texture). Also, I think the 128 face torus scene is completely ruined by the stop-start nature of the presentation of it. Overall, not perfect but definitely worth watching.

Very cool demo (as always) by the Checkpoint guys. Defjam, Modmate and 505 are better than ever.

A very good demo indeed.

The fullscreen remake of the Chaos "Terminal Fuck Up" Falcon 030 screen is by itself a masterpiece !

Not that the remaining part of the demo are bad anyway, far from this, but well, I'm a nostalgic of tight accurate clock cycle counted sync coding :)))

Defjam has once more pushed the ST to its limits with some more extreme brutal coding! A long demo with many parts, lots of effects never seen before on ST (or at least, not as nicely done). I especially like that great raycaster part with effects on the walls, that nice greenish tunnel and the 128-face torus... the smoking Jasmine is also impressive...
The fullscreen rotozoom with the "World of Commodore" tune is definetly a good allusion - Atari rules! :)
And once again 505 did marvels with the ST soundchip!

That's a new benchmark for the ST scene.

Wow, here we got a big bunch of neat effects from DefJam once again, yeah! \(^,^)//

I especialy like the Checkpoint logo formation from rotating squares, really damn great looking, and of course the fullscreen rotozoomer is fantastic. :)

Shame that transitions are missing in some most parts of the demo but an upgraded version is planed.

I have to finally find out how to connect my AtariSt on the TV (I have one, but with b&w monitor, left in the basement) and watch these demos there! At the beginning, I tried to run it in SainT and crashed before the torus ;P I was frustrated, cause I wanted to see more, finally Steem worked out well..

A lot of original effects for AtariSt, pure coderpr0n, inspires me to start coding new ideas..

this demo really rulez ! all part are amazing ! a must to see demo which will probably become a classic !
I love it !

once again Defjam kicks asses with awesome fx, most of them way out the ST limits !! The guy is insane and I love that ! Great msx and piccies too ! Some screens would deserve polished design imho, but it's an excuse to say POSH isn't 100% perfect :)

Yeah!!! This demo made my day. Especially the Mathematica/Reflex-Doom effect with cool Atari logos and the driving fast soundtrack!! love it or die!
rulez added on the 2003-07-27 10:54:06 by twh twh
That's great to see a demo pushing the ST further. I only regret the choice of colors of some effects ( too many tints and a little too much contrast to my taste ).

The raycasting part is awesome.
rulez added on the 2003-08-02 03:34:15 by p01 p01
Ripped and massacred music and gfx and ugly, chunky monochrome and garish effects. Aside from the odd well-pixelled picture or logo, I didn't find any appeal in this at all.

Wade: "Ripped and massacred music and gfx"? Besides the *rather obvious* Sanity tribute in the middle of the demo, can you present us any substance for that claim?
added on the 2004-01-25 10:00:54 by havoc havoc
Brill demo through and through, though I misperceived the rotozoomer tune as a Phenomena tune. =)

A graceful successor for "Suretrip". Excellent work.
rulez added on the 2005-01-22 22:32:45 by Zweckform Zweckform
watched it again. I had forgotten the AWESOME fullscreen rotozoomer with the soundtrack. That effect alone deserve life time respect.

And the musics are really cool too. Poor little YM2149, 505 makes it squeeze like hell.

My opinion about some colors stands :p

i must admit that more i code on st and more i love this demo not because of design (polak style sux) but really because some part are master piece :) (or pure cheats ... ;))
rulez added on the 2005-12-13 15:55:26 by HerrV HerrV
Code is impressive ok, but design and colors sucks. Overall a good demo though i miss the one frame feeling :-)
I've not commented on this yet? What's the matter with me?!

Anyway, it rules, I spent the party viewing looking out for bugs, but this demo improves on further viewing at home.
rulez added on the 2006-01-12 01:44:50 by CiH CiH
Ok, the code is cool (i mean if you don't look for one frame effects...) but the design is quite low. However, it's still good to see such big prods on ST.

Mixed feelings about this one. Totally excellent code but some parts are shown for much too long (esp. the Doom part) and some look a bit ugly. Still a very cool demo, smoking Jasmin rocks. :) Cool musics as well.

Music by Big Masta 505 ... I love you guy you know it ;-) Defjam, except the fact this one beat the Fantasia first version in this party :-(, i love too much the rotozoomer, the bump in the intro part and more and more ... Thumb up for you guys ...

One more time, massive code from Defjam and excellent musics by Five'o'five !
The doughnut part is ugly&boring but the tunnel, "world of atari" rotozoom and the nice raycaster are really amazing... The best ST demo at this time.

a thumb up but indeed some parts are way worse than others

I was also surprised the cigarette effect didn't have music 🤷‍♂️
This production simply rulez! Never seen such cool women in a demo before. Great ideas and the effects are very nice. Especially the woman with the burning cigarette. As an Amiga user this innovative demo makes me a little bit jelous. ;-)
