This is kick ass stuff.. I just made a cynical vote because im not happy with the cosy style :) The sound could be cooler and the graphics less fisher price inspired.. Still the code behind this that Blueberry showed me is awesome. He uses a reduced instruction set so that the instructions themselves are smaller and then this bytecode is compiled to m68k bytecode before running.. Awesome!
Ive been told that also BIOS chips use this technique to save space on the chip. The code is stored as Forth byte code which is smaller than the assembly mnemonics.. I think Forth is some stack based machine or something.. There was bound to be a 4k on the gathering(PC) that would use this technique, but it was sadly not finished in time. I think this is the way to go for 4ks.

yeah, the music could be better; also design is not stunning. but all in all - Ikanim is quite funny and - simply - cool! :) Good work.

Loonies never were kings of design, but kings of tricky optimized code, both in speed and in size. And in this one, even the design is quite good. Very nice stuff.

Nice clone of "The popular demo" of Farbrauschs' winner pc demo of BP last year! Blueberry at his best I'd say.

Lovely. Amiga has become the perfect 4k machine.

this is definately one of the very few not-so-serious-productions that are actually funny AND brilliant. fantastic codework here, one of the best 4k`s so far. the music left me dissappointed first, but after watching it again (and again, and again...) i suddenly started loving the melody, it`s hallirious!

Amazing code in there by Blueberry, and the presentation of the intro is brilliant.

Very, very good. Once again, I have to say that It's by far better on a Real Amiga.
