Boink by Atari Corporation
Playtime1min 30sec
TypeAtari ST demo (1985)
Capture sourceAtari STe, PAL composite video
TriviaAfter the Amiga "Boing" demo had been presented and with "wow" effect it had, Atari remade the demo on the ST.

Funnily, this trend continued a long long time with Atari demos mimicking Amiga effects, though without the use of a blitter, copper or hardware scrolling.

How dare you barry, this is realtime

It's not even precalc. A lot of it is palette rotation tricks.

Pedro, the Amiga boing demo is not only palette rotation trick as well but playfield scrolling tricks and planar tricks too, so watch those stones yer throwing! :)
