Dot Tunnel

Dot Tunnel

It just had to be time for a quick break with my running Amiga 4000. The below code in AMOS will generate a tunnel with dots rotating in AMOS in 50fps. How was this possible, AMOS is sooo slow? Easy, the same old trick as “unlimited bobs”. Have fun! 🙂   The code
 
A1200 + GOTEK
