Not too bad demo for 1990 but not that interesting either. I don't
understand why they released it on 2 disks as all parts fit easily on
one disk. Code is OK for its time, lots of blitter waits had to be added
and quite some long writes to $dff000 and other bugs needed to be fixed.
Not much more to say here, enjoy the demo from HD.
