Review by Glenn Lunder

Once again, a totally unknown group delivers a very good piece of demo entertainment. This one, though in no way outstanding, is well above the limits of mediocrity. The graphics are functional, and in some places interact very well with the code. There are two pieces of music; the main tune is (surprise, surprise!) techno, but better than the majority of techno tunes. The endscreen tune is a more slow, orchestral affair which is actually rather good. The majority of effects here are of the bitmap manipulation variety, with zoomrotators and other such things dominating.
There is mention of the fact that this demo was made for standard A1200s. If this is their idea of a demo for 'basic A1200', then I'd really like to see what these guys are capable of with some fastmem and an accelerator...
tested A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 4mb fast/3.0.
