I think that Jim St. Louis and Russ Karas wrote the robot/spaceship demo. Probably the confusion comes from the Atari CES demo disk containing both sets of demos.

Author: Michael Park (XANTH); this demo is much better known as the SWAN Demo. Michael Park is also the author of Fuji boink demo, Robot/Spaceship demo, Amiga boink demo and Midi maze...

Well, the author of the bird demo, fuji-boink, amiga boink and the starship demo is XANTH, the same guy that programmed Midi Maze a few years later. Originally all these demos (except Amiga boink) were available as one big file, called "130XE CES demo", since they were shown at the 1985 CES show and required a 130XE (128k RAM) to run. Luckily, the single file versions work fine with less memory...
|Hold down X during the fuji spin and the name Xanth will replace the spinning 130XE.|
