Axelerate is a polish demo group, formed by Cactus at the end of 1997.
1998 - Their first demo was released, called "Grease" , announcing the
new memberships of Asterix (code), Firebee (music) and Stix (music).
September saw the release of the "Phobos Music Collection" [09/98], in turn
announcing that Bolek (swap) and Data (music) had joined, that Klax had
joined as a doublememb from Oxygen, and that Firebee had bought a pc and
would probably decrease his c64 activity some in the future.
Grease (1998, demo).
code: Legion, Asterix (additional), Rat/ex Axelerate (additional), gfx:
Azgar/vaudeville, Scarab (additional), music: Klax/Oxygen, Phobos.
review: "Grease" is this young group's first demo, and it does display a
lack of experience. Among the effects we're shown is some plasma
variations, shadebobs, sineplots and some linevectors. The graphics are an
especially weak point in this demo, with some uninspired logo efforts.
Probably released outside of any party (and thus hard to place in time
without any additional hints), the demo announces Asterix' reentry into
the scene in this group, and the joining of Firebee and Stix.
The demo is a single file, but is accompanied by a note (code: Fero/
Unreal, gfx: Azgar/Vaudeville, music: Phobos/Axelerate) with credits and
some other small things. [glenn]
Phobos Music Collection (1998, 28.09, musicdisk).
code: Copieya, gfx: Copieya, Zeus/ex Axelerate, music: Phobos.
review: The first thing that happens is that you're given a fullscreen
choice between a note and the collection itself. The note (code: Legion,
gfx: Scarab, music: Klax) tells us the usual things; the credits, the
memberlist etc. The collection itself is a single static screen where you
can select any one of the 24 available tunes. The graphics in this part
(by Zeus) is pretty uninspiring. The music is average to good. [glenn]
