Showstopper (1996, 18.08, AGA HD Multifile)

Review by Glenn Lunder

A little bland, this. There's the usual envmapping, but nothing to excite me or make me say 'that's original'. In a few short words, it's same shit, new (and not necessarily better) wrapping. The only effect I really liked in this demo is the one with the angray face wrapped onto the sphere. The face twists and waves in various ways. That was ok.
There are three raytraced logos and a fullscreen picture. The picture, "Adam Finds Eva" by Mindeye also competed in the graphics competition, where it was unplaced. It says nowhere whether it needs fastmem or not. The system during the endscreen upscroller is weird... Left mousebutton has no effect, while right exits. Weird...

Hope 2 (1996, 28.09, AGA 64k Intro)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Taking into consideration the tag line '3 hour production', I was positively surprised by "Hope 2". It's a small, limited production, but with some excellent core code work that shines through, and reveals some good potential beneath the surface. This is a typical 'object' intro, but given that, it's a nice colorful and pretty fat variation. My only real complaint is the rather ungraceful exit it performed on my machine, with the last note of the music beeeeeeping my ears to madness. For three hours worth of work, this is very nice.
The C2P routine used was published to Aminet (dev/asm/asac2p2.lha) 10/96, with the intro included in the archive.
