Always liked that intro. Great idea with bars as the filling. And the logo - true, the HTL Atari ST division used this logo a couple of times...
This style of logo transcended the c64 scene and made its way into the Atari St scene also. Hotline used this logo (or something very similar) on their Atari St releases around 1988 - 1989. Go to pouet(dot)net for more.
