Nothing special as for the production on A1. Practically nothing innovative and taking breath away. But for sure this demo will go to the history as the first A1 production.

the music is bad ane the tunnel parts are boring. the rest is quite cool.

push da tempo! dynamic, but nothing special. don't forget it's demo for less or more 1ghz ppc machine, so we expected something better than 1 frame 68k effects!

Some info i gathered on this demo: a fast made production (8 days), coded, if i'm not mistaken, in Assembler. Keep in mind that the platform it was coded for (OS4) is still in beta, thus lacking important things like 3D api (Warp 3D)... Also, the demo actually runs faster on an AOne than seen in the video and the sound in the video isn't actually matching up to the original quality either.
Now on to the demo: this is the first production i have seen from Universe as i never saw any of their AmigaPPC demos. And while the demo is nothing spectacular, some little details here and there make me believe that they could actually make a killer demo in time. I definately like the speed of the demo which is a refreshing change from the slower demos that haven been released the past years. And especially the end (screenshot 8) effect is quite cool! Some nice design touches here and there too. Other parts, like the tunnels, are nothing special (i have seen better tunnels on 68k). The greetings part was not so good looking.
Still, the first one is always the most difficult one, i guess... Looking forward to the next demo! Bring it on Universe!

Yes, this is an 8 days production, and taking this into account, I think its very good. The beginning wavy surface is actually very nice, and the whole thing gives a good impression of speed.
Crisot himself has said that as soon as he gets Warp3D for OS4 Universe are going to spend *months* not days on their next OS4 production... if the quality scales up in proportion to the time spent on it, it should kick ass ;-)
All in all, this is an OK demo, and worth seeing.

Ok now the new-school-pseudo-amiga scene has split in half, both pegasos and A1, I hope the involved people make there demos compatible.
The demo itself, isn't anything special but I like what I see and I'm looking forward to see a their next demo. Btw is there any videos of Universes PPC demos for us 68k amigans?
comment by Crumb on 17 August 2004
PPC Amiga intros should be WarpOS + Warp3D so they'll run without problems in Classic Amigas with PPC, Pegasos and (when the WarpOS launcher is developed) AmigaOne. Otherwise we'll loose lots of nice intros :-(

I think it is good, better than some of the demos on pegasos by universe. But in general, pegasos and 68k demos are better.. But it is VERY nice to have a demo for the amigaone and Os4, I want more!! =)

Nice! I really like the fact that it runs so fast without any 3D acceleration!!
I dont really understand why all Pegasos demos needs 3D-acceleration?
I didnt get any sound watching the demo (Pegasos1 @ 600Mhz), but sure hell it was
faaaast and some effects looked really, really good! I believe MAWI will get some
competition soon... ;)
