Ray-traced trailblazer (Old school revival)

Trailblazer is a video game edited by Gremlin Graphics in 1986. It requires the player to direct a ball along a series of suspended passages. Released originally by Gremlin Graphics for the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Atari 8-bitand Amstrad CPC in 1986 (there was also an enhanced version on Amstrad CPC 3" disc) it was subsequently ported in its original form to the Amiga and Atari ST.

Since I was a big fan of the game, I decided to give it a try with my realtime raytracing engine written in OpenCL. Here is the preview :)
