It fit the progressive nature of Paradox. I found it funny at the time

Have never liked this one and never understood all the hype about.
It’s a rather disgusting teenage(?) stuff.
The music is really cool, thou. The logo and 16×16 are nice, as well.

Hi SToRM.
Thanks for the answer.
Yes, I read some scrollers (and not only) about Angels and Paradox issues back in the days. Fighting about suppliers, first cracks, a (ruthless) competition and ego centrism trips.
Do not have a YT account to see the answer. I suppose you refer to the rather childish Angels’ answer to, iIrc, Oliver…
But still. Man ;).

childish indeed, but some people even had to go to jail, so there was some cut-throat stuff goin’ on.

One day one shall ask oneself where is the line and… a reason.

Some people are still going to jail. Just never learn I guess. Maximillian is going back to prison again.

so sad to read this. it’s just not worth it. But piracy is a hard to resist temptation for some of us.

That’s because “piracy” is utter bullshit! There is nothing wrong with “piracy” because it is not wrong to do this, just because some assholes managed to make it a law – laws are not perfect nor have they ever been just or equitable!
Anybody who says copying software is illegal is hiding behind a law made by humans who aren’t infallible, and therefore that person is a fucking asshole. Copying software will never be wrong!!!

“Do you feel it Angels?” – I’m sure they did, this one will never be forgotten (even if it’s technically/visually not impressive!)

Technically not impressive?!? 30 years later my mind is still blown by that circular scroller. I still have no idea how I would implement that.

I mean… it’s just a few 1-bitplane bobs moving on a (circular-ish) sinelist, I’m sure you could code it in less than an hour 😛

Is it really that simple? How fast would the Blit routine have to be?

yes very simple.. the equation for an ellipse is:
x = rx * cos a – ry * sin a
y = ry * sin a + ry * sin a

with rx and ry are your radius for the ellipse and a is the angle that sweeps through 0-360 degrees (or 0 – 2 * PI radians). You can pre-calculate all of these points and just make each bob sweep the full 360 degree path (or however many points you want on the ellipse) and swap the character to a new one when it reaches the end point.

Despite of the “legendary status” I never like this one that much as an intro what so ever. The zik is memorable.

The ultimate one. Stone cold knockout.
