This demo by TBL is quite good. The sheer number of well coded effects is impressive. It was already obvious that Offa and Equalizer were really talented coders. There are some nice pictures in there aswell. However, the demo itself was visually not really impressive, especially on the choice of colors.

Great demo, amazing soundtrack. Feels more coherent than Tint.

what noname said.

Judged by the sheer number of effects this is an impressive demo, especially considering the amount of output TBL had during the 1996. And there were not that many months between Tint,Glow and the Goa. However design-wise I don't really like this, the colours are to "screamy" and the music is not my cuppa at all. Somehow I get the feeling that they didn't have a clear idea what they wanted to achive with this production. Stil massive respect, the talent of the makers are clearly shining through.

On a little sidenote, i seem to remember both this demo and Tint being reviewed in the same issue of CU Amiga long time ago, in the PD-section. I always thought that the demo coverage in CU was pretty good. I remember drooling at both demos and really wanting to get my hands on them, but i probably didn't have enough ram/and or cpu to run it. Damn, those were the times.

It is garish, but I like it anyway. Space theme or something? It suffers a bit from HAM8 overdose. That tweeter sound in the middle is insane!

Well, I have mixed feelings about this one. Some of the effects look extremely good, while other seem a bit dull. This music is not really my taste.

This one needs a higher rating. Really nice little package, great colours and music.
