Vectorballs Demoanother classic demo effect
Vectorballs is an oldskool demo-effect where 3D points are represented as shaded balls. They are sorted in the proper order and then displayed on a 2D screen. The BlitzBasic source files are included.
It is used in some graphics demos from the late 80s and early 90s. There are (as far as I know) only 2 games that use this effect, namely Ecstatica for the PC and Vectorman for the Sega Megadrive/Genesis.

ESC - quit
1 - select cube
