Boules et Bits is a demo that was programmed by Hicks and released in September 2006, with graphics by Beb of Overlanders and music by Tom et Jerry of GPA.

Hicks programmed the demo in order to break a record that had previously been set by Megachur in his demo, Maurice Aime les Bobs, for the greatest number of balls being animated on a background, with music playing and text being scrolled across the screen, at 50 frames per second.

Megachur's record was 26 balls, but Boules et Bits displays and animates 42 balls, 16×16 pixels in size, over a background and with music playing, while running at 50 frames per second. As of September 2006, this is the current record for the greatest number of sprites being animated on the screen in one frame, without any flickering.
