Offence [new] (1994-)
NOR> Nick (Anders Nordby, founder swap, ex Spaceballs, new 12/93-
04/99), Nosferatu, Pal (gfx, 04/97), Perplex (Lars Haugseth, code, ex
GER> Arrogance (gfx music, 04/97), Drake (ex Razor Dezign), Sim (ex Razor
Dezign), Yup (Andreas Schneider, code, 04/97).
Nick left Spaceballs after The Party 3 to rebuild Offence, and is as such
the only founder of the new Offence. Perplex is perhaps best known as the
coder of legendary diskmag 'R.A.W'.
No Sleeping! (1994, 03.04, ECS 40k Intro).
code: Perplex, gfx: Pal, music: Lizard/Spaceballs.
4th in The Gathering 94 40k intro competition.
review: The only halfway interesting effect in this intro has the be the
twisting scroller in the endpart, which was nicely executed. Other than
that, this is strictly boring as fuck. I guess Perplex should stick to
coding diskmags :) [glenn]

Carpe Noctem (1997, 01.04, ECS 020 Musicfile).
code: Yup, gfx: Red Wiz/Offence C64 (pic logo), Pal (char), Arrogance
(char), music: Arrogance, Geir Tjelta/Moz(IC)Art, Pink/Abyss,
Prodigy/Oops! (THX format).
review: Now, -THIS- practically REEKS of C64 quality! This is far from a
perfect production, but it doesn't really matter. It's the atmosphere.
Technically it's a THX music disk, with music by some of that scene's
most talented players. Not all of the music is equally good, though; some
of Arrogance's tunes are less than perfect. But these minor shortcomings
are more than made up for by the amazing c64 graphics - made on a real
c64 by a real c64 graphician. This is not Amiga sceners trying to 'do the
c64'. This is c64 sceners 'doing the Amiga' - while avoiding compromise.
If I have to criticize something here, then the control method for
selecting tunes and text is a little hard to control at times, and some
of the effects on the text pages can make them harder to read. But these
are minor issues; download and enoy! [glenn]
