IIGS Demo Scene reviewed
Ninjaforce takes a look at the Apple IIGS demoscene


Modulae by FTA

  With this demo, FTA was at the very height of their creativity, setting new standards for GS presentations. It is both: technically stunning and very nice to look at.

Modulae introduction demo

  Just as the name suggests, this demo is built up in a modular way. On the lower part of the screen, there is a control panel, which provides for interactivity. Afer launching, the demo runs in "Automatik" mode, which means that you can just sit and watch it go through all the modules one by one. Turn it off and you get to control the screen action yourself.

Of course.


Modulae is all about 3D: there are line mode objects, vector balls, a very nice free flight module, fill mode 3D and finally, a pre-calculated flight through the FTA logo.

The musics in both the intro and the main demo are very nicely done, each using at least 10 of the 16 available channels, doing the sound capabilities of the GS justice.


The Big Apple, made in France

  All in all, Modulae is probably the most presentable demo for people that have never watched demos at all before and is in that way bridging the gap of a demo for sceners and a commercial hardware presentation.
