5th Logo (1994-1999) ASC Games (Mid 90's)ASC Games - CLG WikiASC Games - CLG Wiki


Nickname: "Ackees"

Logo: On a starry background, a purple/white galaxial vortex emerges at the center and attracts a red sphere and two spinning blue/green oval streaks. The red sphere goes to the center of the streaks (which keep on spinning) as the vortex dissapears. The stacked "ASC GAMES" fades in below as the stars fade out.

Variants:

Mass Destruction (1996):The logo is simpler, much like the previous one, and already complete. A rocket blows it to parts. One (1997):The neon logo is superimposed over the opening credits. Animaniacs: Ten Pin Alley (1998):A bowling ball hits the pins standing on the logo, completing it. Dead in the Water (1998):The logo swims in the water and a skull appears inside. TNN Outdoors Pro Hunter (1998):The arcs are brown-colored with a crosshair inside. Sanitarium (1998):The logo is covered in bandages. FX/SFX: The vortex appearing, oval streaks and the sphere flying in, the vortex disappearing, the company name appearing.

Music/Sounds: Windy sound mixed with female screaming noises, when the oval streaks and the sphere flies in, the synth note intensifies to the point where the vortex disappeared and jarringly changes to a synth bass note mixed with the cymbal crash when the company name appears, followed by the female announcer whispering "Ackees."

Availability: The stock version is hard to find. It appeared on Perfect Weapon, Ten Pin Alley and TNN Motor Sports Hardcore 4x4. The variants are more common, though.
