New demo - Reach

Post by SarahWalker » Sat Jun 20, 2020 9:49 pm

I released a new demo at NOVA this weekend - Reach. It wants an ARM3/25 and 2 MB RAM; it will run with some serious chugging on an ARM250, but will be a slideshow on ARM2. Thanks to mAZE & Dya for the music, and Forcer for the (one good) picture.

Love it Sarah,
any chance of adding a game to that landscape?
I always wanted to write "Hover Bover" since the mid 90s, it was going to be a hovercraft racing game, maybe a rip-off of mario cart!

Great work! =D>

Runs very nicely on a 24mhz A3020

Every line of code punched well above it's weight.
An awesome demo cram-packed full of awesome music and graphical effects.

Can you tell I liked it?

Apologies for the deleted links and melodramatic post edit. Demoing is quite stressful sometimes.

It’s a fab demo. Makes me wish I had an ARM3 machine, or a mega overclocked ARM250!!

For anyone that missed it, Sarah's excellent video presentation about creating Reach, which was recorded at Saturday's Virtual ABug event, is now online! :)
