Demo Playground


Due to popular demand (well, one of you asked me about it:) I'd like to give you the opportunity to see what's new, what's great and what's possible on the Atari 8-bit demo "scene". The following "Dentros" have been programmed by Heaven, who lives some 35 kilometers away from this place. Enjoy! (BTW: Heaven is a male coder, he is NOT female as some people thought).
