I guess this is the first ever Demo for the 6128.

Oh wow I gotta get myself down to asdd and buy me one, wer is an unbelievable price!  :P
Looks like this was written by the Australian distributor for use in retail shop displays, not that I ever saw it (then again, I *was* stuck in a small country town...)
Some of the sections are obviously ripped off from other demos, but it's surprising just how much is in there.

Some of those palette swapping effects are rather nice!

If anyone is interested I could make videos of the welcome programs for the 464 and 664 as well.


Any thoughts?

Sorry I didn't look at your video. It's not an offical Amstrad demo, which is on Side 4 of the CP/M Disks which comes with the 6128, though it's interesting because it mentions AWA and Mitsubishi Electric that were the Australian Distributors of the early 464,664 & 6128 and perhaps the PCWs too. My 6128 has a Chip in it with the Mitsubishi stamp on it, the demo that you've presented I'm unsure if I've seen it before. But I reckonise the Boucing Ball demo running at the 14:00 mark of the video, which is the Blitter demo from AA10 (July 1986), which was one of a few Type-ins from AA which made it into the Aussie magazine The Amstrad User.
* Using the old Amstrad Languages :D   * with the Firmware :P
* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D
