French Plus only demo from 1991.
The scroll text goes on past the 20 minute mark so to reduce the video length I use the Viewtext utility to look thru the .BIN file for the text in the scroll.
Unfortunately the scroll, which is smooth when viewed on the CPC monitor, is "jerky" in the video but that is a hardware issue with the capture device.
Best viewed on a large screen at 720p (Dailymotion player setting)

"First demo on CPC+. It is composed of split rasters; of a hard text scroll with Hard video delay. Hard sprites are star-shaped and follow sinusoidal curves.

Message from Tom And Jerry of GPA:
The very first demo on CPC plus. It makes good use of the features of the Plus (color gradients, "wired" scrollings and hardware sprites), great work. Only the music is not stamped "+", but hey, 10 years later, there is no (yet) music software for the machine. This production did not encourage other programmers to try to do better for a few years..."
