One thing is changing color in every line slightly - used usually for gradient sky , and other is using complete different palette for screen regions.
Later is used a lot - top part with status has one palette, then middle part for actual play other one, and bottom can be with third palette too .
Of course may be together with gradient.
Accurate palette switch is achieved using Timer-B, where can trigger interrupt at start of given line.
And this has not much with scrolling :D That demo just used it to have little more colors.
There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.
