Vidya gaemz! And Grand National Championships!

Firstly, both a shout out and an apology to those of you that found me through my interview on Grand National Championships. Great show, great music, and I know I said that I would have this thing out on Monday BEFORE the show ended, but that just didn't happen unfortunately. HOWEVER, I have completed the game, and I present it here, for your viewing pleasure!


I can assure you no viral harm will come to your computer, no matter how much it may warn you about the dangers of .exe files. The website I have it hosted on scans for that sort of thing before it allows it to go live, so no worries eh? Also, apologies to MAC users, this won't work for you guys. Sorry :(

If your wondering what the game is like, it's sort of a cross between and old school arcade shooter (Galaga, 1942, etc.) and a matching type puzzle game. You must guide your ship using the W,A,S,D keys through a densely packed asteroid belt, while also using the mouse to place mines on the different colored rocks. When the mines go off, the explosions continue outward from the source until they reach the edge of their range, or they are stopped by a different colored asteroid. You can circumvent this by using one mine to set off another that is placed on a differently colored asteroid!

Theres also a powerup system that lets you increase the abilities of your ship at the end of each level, and just for you folks that visit my blog, heres a cheat code! If you press "J" at the start screen, you'll start the game at level 17, with all your powerups maxed out! Good Luck!
