You have no doubt heard of the game that has appeared, went ballistic then disappeared. Well… I never really played the game but I did think it was a nice simple idea I could implement as an 8 bit game listing style.
Here it is. Infuriating as it is.
This example is a little more complex than my first offering but it is a complete (almost) game. Dying is a bit sudden.. it just resets… but with a game like this it just seemed right to not make the player wait between games.
The game starts with a nod to the old 8 bit computers of my youth. Its slow but it makes me chuckle and that’s all that matters 😛

Go ahead… save the code into an .html file and fire it up… see what you think and as always… feel free to tweak the code and come up with your own version.. will you make it harder or easier to play.. maybe spruce up the graphics or add a dying sequence.
