review: Not bad, especially the zoomrottwistplasma thing is interesting...
GLE tested A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 4mb fast/3.0.

Virtual Conspiracy Intro (1995, 01.04, 40k Intro).
code: Metal, gfx: Louie, Metal, music: Senile.
Released for the Virtual Conspiracy 95 40k intro, but unplaced.
review: Not terribly interesting, the best thing here comes at the very
beginning with the burning vectors. Don't know what else to tell you...
It's quite average. [glenn]
GLE tested A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 16mb fast/3.0.

K-Rauta (1995, 11.06, Demo).
3rd in the Abduction 95 demo competition.

Frenzy (1995, 08.10, AGA 40k Intro).
code: Blaze, gfx: Louie, music: Jozef.
Winner of the Remedy 95 40k intro competition!

Frenzy 100% (1995, 22.10, AGA 40k Intro).
code: Blaze, gfx: Louie, music: Jozef.
review: Nicely designed but oh so short is this little winner intro.
I guess they made a decision on the 'squaky tune and blocky picture' vs
'short but extremely sweet' dilemma and chose the latter. Not that I'm
complaining, I'm all for sweetness!
The code's nothing revolutionary, and neither are the graphics or the
music. The design is what I guess makes this one any special...
This is the 100% version, which is 5k larger than the original 40k
competition intro. [glenn]
GLE tested A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 4mb fast/3.0.

Inside (1995, 28.12, AGA 40k Intro).
code: Blaze, gfx: Louie, music: Vedder.
33rd in The Party 5 40k intro competition.
review: Objects, objects, objects... No, seriously, "Inside" opens with
some credits (as - yes, you've guesse it - shaded objects) fly towards
the viewer from various parts of the screen. The background has some sort
of colorcycling effect, but it doesn't look too good. Everything here
seems to use some kind of smoothing, which looks perhaps a little like
what Virtual Dreams used in "242", only smoother. Short is ok if it's
also sweet, but this isn't, really. It's more of an aftertaste thing :)
This is not terribly interesting, but didn't really deserve to end up
dead last either... [glenn]
GLE tested A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 16mb fast/3.0.
