Some scenes are nice, others are not. The colours and design are okay but the music is boring. This demo is worth a look but itīs not my taste.

Best Contraz demo to date.. The theme is about old games I guess which it borrows a lot of elements from. Not strikingly original, but pulled of nicely with lots of small details that you dont pay attention to the first time you see it. The pacman eating the screen is cool. I also like the way the micromonster logo enters the screen.. The greets scroller is a cool idea.. the two spheres in the tunnel are also rather sexy.

The "nostalgia" scene sucks a bit. It looks a bit c64 though, and I guess that was the intention. BUT ITS A BIT UGLY.. ;)
The music is a bit too organic when compared to the content. I guess some closer cooperation between the musician and the coder would have been teh shit to do.

Electro music on this one would have been great :)

Nice one from CONTRAZ typical productions.

Puzzles me, that it did'nt get any betther rank in the compo. We can only fear that retrocomputing is a non-existing topic for the visitors at Tg in these days....(Fear, Fear!).

Nice and entertaining demo with a twist of cool music. Love the "micromonsters" concept behind it, but I can't believe that it was ranked 15th. Bah to the voters. :P

There are some very good effects like the jumping bump-balls, and I like most of the design.

comment by jack-3d on 17 January 2012

I love the GFX and design, also music works there ;o)

Nice demo indeed. Dran has an eye for design and attention to detail. It seems he has put some real thought into making this. Transitions between effects are nice too. Graphics are generally great and the effects are enjoyable. Enjoyed the intro credits scene a lot. Greetings scroller was great but somewhat unreadable for me.

I tend to agree with Loaderror though in that the music, while nice, felt somewhat disconnected.
