Thanks to 'Mark' for the Stargate quote.
code: Einstein, gfx: Savage/2000 AD and Mr.3D/Starion (coop picture), Zoro
(sprites), Groucho (sprites), music: Johannes Bjerregaard.
review: This small 3-part demo is technically competent, with some
nicelooking parts. The first part is a 'real tech-tech' routine performed
on Savage and 3D's cooperation picture, with a bouncing spritescroller
overlaid. The second part is also quite nice, with a version of Glenn
Miller's "In The Mood" on the soundtrack and some nice rasterbars bouncing
about with another spritescroller. The third and final part presents a 28
sprite multiplexed DYSP routine, controllable with the joystick. This is
an especially good part, IMHO, with sprites and a good soundtrack.
Unfortunately, no time of release appears anywhere in the demo. They do
mention they've started doing Amiga demos too, with Einstein coding.
Freezer (1989, File Demo, 90 blocks).
code: Stargate (main), gfx: Tech, Zero, music: Johannes Bjergaard.
info: Very remarkable demo, among the best this year. quote by Stargate:
"Johannes Bjergaard composed the music especially for this demo to
minimize raster usage. He did the music within 2 days after we realized
we had forgotten the music. Tech & Zero did the graphics in less than a
day for the same reason. We called it 'Freezer' because the 2. Upfront
demo was called 'Toaster' (for some reason nobody can remember) and we
liked the theme of 'kitchen objects'; we thought that 'frezzer' was a
cool demo, hence the name."
