When I was in high school the Atari 800 had just come out. Back then this demo was the most inspiring thing ever! I would look at this demo and think computers were going to change the world. How I could imagine all that from this demo is hard to fathom I guess but I did.

It was one of the first Atari demos to show 128 colors on the screen (the beginning logo) and that was actually good music for a computer back then.

The Apple 2 could only display 16 colors in low-res and 6 in high and only had a click speaker. Other systems out at the time were the Tandy Radio Shack 80 (TRS-80) and the Commodore Pet. The Commodore 64 had not yet come out.
