let's stay with the Atari for a moment and enjoy this megademo:


also a very catchy tune

Please, can we switch to Sega and Nintendo games? I've emulated countless Sega and Nintendo games. Who knows, perhaps I'll be able to guess one! (roll)

Well at least Atari ST and MegaDrive share the same processor ;)

But if I ever guess another game, I'll try to remember a console title

Ah, I remember the 16-bit demo scene... ;-D

But I don't particularly remember that one!

Oh, this one is quite famous. The demo is interactive, you access several demo rooms by manoeuvreing a winged lion (wtf)
The song of this particular demo room was also often used in cracktros.

Now weirdly that does ring a bell.  But I still can't think of the game despite it presumably ending in "eless"!  (Which makes me useless, I guess.)

Never played that demo, but it reminds me of a Jeff Minter game.

I know I'm going to kick myself when I see what this is, but I just can't think of it. :-\

music is called "Comic Bakery tune" by Martin Galway. I bet you've heard it before.
Now what's the name of the demo?

I don't know anything about those demos, never played one. So, I don't know, Dark Side of the Spoon?

What's that?
It looks like an imitation of Day of the Tentacle!

Nope, it's a Polish commercial game. Released in 1995.
