Mysterious Mixture (1990, late, ECS File)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Now, this is what makes wading through endless amounts of old demos and intros seem halfway worth my time. Every now and then you come across a small jewel, and this is just such an instant. Much thanks to two elements - the music and the plasma-like effect that I really don't know what to call :) - a little magic is created here. It's one of those rare little productions that create a little atmosphere... But stop reading what I'm wabbling on about, and GO GET THIS - hmm, that music is just an amazingly wondrous piece...
After pressing left mousebutton to exit, you are shown a picture with Hazor's address for swapping, before the intro exits for real. It needs KillAGA to work, but still destabilizes my system after exiting.
tested A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 16mb fast/3.1 -- Note: See review!

5 Years Intro (1993, 10.08, ECS 40k Intro)

Review by Glenn Lunder

I quite like this intro, which was made in celebration of BF's five years in the scene on C64 and Amiga. There's a few OK things here, and you notice attention has been put into making it polished. Effort pays off in Scenery: Nice one.
tested A500 /000-7 /½mb chip, ½mb fast/2.04.
A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 4mb fast/3.0.
