Many people are familiar with the awesome
Ocean loaders from the 8-bit days.
For those that are not, "loaders" are small programs that were usually artwork and music (sometimes games) that were displayed while the actual game loaded from tape or disk.
Ocean (a games publishing company) was famous for creating 5 (IIRC) loaders that they used in many of their games.
Were there any others that achieve nearly (or greater?) success and popularity as the Ocean loaders?
I'm mostly interested in the ones for
Commodore 64 but any other retro platform would be great.
I should have mentioned that "famous" doesn't always mean "legit". :-) So, if the loader was famous/well-known but belonged to a cracking group, that is also OK.
