No Reality (ECS Trackmo)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Due to incompatibility reasons, I haven't really been able to see all of this demo. What I've seen though, confirms nicely to the old idea that textscreen-effect-textscreen is a nice design that works fine :( There are, however, some nice effects here, and I'd especially like to mention the 'lightsourced fractal landscapes'. Not only do they look great, but they render like lightning on the 030! ;) Unfortunately, when the demo decides it's time to load the second part it crashes after completing the loading. Nothing I've tried remedies this, not even kicking the machine down to 1.3. So for now, this is what you get :) All credit information was hacked out of the disk itself, since that part's obviously in the second portion of the demo. I'd be very very grateful for results...

Plan B BBS Intro (1993?, ECS File)

Review by Glenn Lunder

This small BBS intro shows Devils are not afraid to go new ways in design; it employs a highres display that's original, and made the production look 'fresh' when it first appeared. Together with the fast, catchy techno music it created a good atmosphere. I say did, because unfortunately it hasn't aged all that well. When you look at it objectively, you clearly see that there's nothing really advanced about the intro, no 'cutting edge' code. It looks OK, sounds catchy, but is ultimately not very interesting. It does its job and little else.

Party Cocktail packmenu (1993, early, ECS Intro)

Review by Glenn Lunder

A perfectly serviceable packemenu, with the best part being a large, twisting DEVILS logo down the entire left hand part of the screen. The rest is taken up by the selector, textplotter and small scrolltext.
The intro was used for issue #1, released at The Gathering in april, and so we conclude it was first made early this year. It worked perfectly well on my configuration with caches off and original chipset, but since there was no time to test with caches enabled, I can not make any guarantees for its behaviour on such a configuration.
