Paradoxum BBS-Intro (1993, ECS File)

Review by Glenn Lunder

The tune makes this little intro, but let's face it: This is not going to set the world on fire - and was certainly never meant to. It's just a text plotter, a small vector 'thingy' flying around and some functional background graphics. For the record, the 'PARADOXUM' bbs is not an Arise board, it's in Diamonds & Rust.
tested A500 /000-7 /½mb chip, ½mb fast/2.04.
A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 16mb fast/3.1 -- Note: Needs KillAGA.

Ahnungslos (1993, 01.08, ECS Intro)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Meaningless, short intro which can't have been meant seriously. It's just a boring small tune, a graphic background which is a joke, and a ludicrously bad textwriter. Please stop releasing this shit, people.
The intro welcomes LOTS of members; Axel, Beatbrain, Brutus, DF, DRF, Effendi, Falcon, JPM, Kid Frost, Noname, Pencl, Poison, Posdnuos, Skindiver, SKY, SMC, Smudo, Taron, Virus, Vision, WOTW.

The Melee Intro (1993, late, AGA 40k Intro)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Melee is a charming little intro, which is a little bit ruined for me by some truly pathetic music. Too bad they couldn't have used another tune... But apart from the music, this is a nice intro with some nice design and ok effects.
No release date is quoted in the intro, and the only hints we're given is the '1993' in the accompanying ansi, and the module's sampletext saying the tune was made in october 93. This intro welcomes Effendi from Agnostic Front.
