The Snowman 2009 by Checkpoint - Atari ST Demo - The 25ish Days of Christmas - Eve BONUS 4!

It is unfair to compare this demo to the original, in my opinion.  This demo was made as a celebration of the original.  It was made in 2009, 22 years after the original.

It was released on December 24, 2009.  So, today, this demo is 10 years old! 

So, what has been added here?  There is a slight intro with a new tune.  Gone is the screen split into quadrants, and now the image fills the screen.  Add in a scroller, and some effects for a transition, and I think that covers this release.  The scroller is a decent length.

A great celebration of the original release!

The demo was played on an Atari 1040 STf, TOS 1.4, 1MB, equipped with a CosmosEX from Jookie.
A Best Electronics ST Monitor to VGA cable was used, connected to an OSSC 1.6 (processing the video in Line4x mode), with the output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.
