Review by Glenn Lunder

Matrix' first demo is technically advanced for sure, but how much does that help when certain effects move forward with an almost amazingly slow framerate? Don't get me wrong, this is not a bad demo at all - quite the contrary, in fact - but they should perhaps have spent some more time polishing and optimizing their effects. The graphics are great, tho.
The music is worth an extra mention, since it sounds so amazingly clear and crisp - almost like it was coming out of my GUS ;) I don't personally care much for this kind of music, but the sound quality on this mod is rather great... I may be wrong, but my guess is it has something to do with 16 bit samples that are later converted...
The guys who made this - Matrix' first demo - later joined Artwork and are now more or less Artwork's PC section.
GLE tested A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 4mb fast/3.0.
