I'm tired.

While I'm here, do you like my new avatar? Sues knitted him.

That avatar is brilliant. I wanna knit me one! (Yeah I can knit... tongue.gif)

And that game is very addictive. over 16000 on easy, I like! Can't get more than 7 on hard though.... poo.
For some reason I keep getting a pop up where my mouse is while I'm playing, asking me whether I'd like to save it or somesuch. Rather annoying.

Nice Av, and a reat game. I seem to be very bad at it though, 140 on easy is my best so far.

Another excellent game Mata. You seem to be rather good at taking a simple idea, injecting some surrealism, and coming out the other side with a fun way to pass a few minutes/hours/lives....

Good work!
EDIT: Though I do seem to have trouble loading it sometimes, and have to right click on it and use the 'forward' option to "kick start" it. Any thoughts?

And your new avatar is great.

But higher bonuses for exploding lots of spaceships at once.

Hobbes, where exactly does it hang?

As for the silly high scores: The banana bombs work on an exponential score system, depending on how many ships you destroy. Every extra ship you destroy doubles the value of the bomb. I put that in there to give that risk/reward factor. Do you wait until you're surrounded or just take out a couple of ships and stay safe? Are you really safer with more ships around until your next bomb? If you leave some this time you're more likely to have a higher bomb bonus next time, but can you survive that long?

Sues and I plan to sell the knitted pattern for Mittens as a download at some point in the future smile.gif

EDIT: Cal, there should be no pop-ups generated by the banners on my site, so you should run a scan on your machine for nasties if you get them with only my site open.

Prior to even the loading sequence. Just a white screen. If I jump to the game, from your blog, it is up immediately. But after a game, when it refreshes (to show new scores, I assume), it just shows white - unless, like I said before, I "kick start" it a little.

Any thoughts? Or it is just me.

Samorine: Wait until there are about 12 aliens in your blast area. Nuke them all and you get around 4000 points I think. Though I can only usually get 5-10. I think I was zooming about for 15 minutes, I could do better. It was only my first go. wink.gif

Mata: It's not spyware... I think it may be Avant Browser. It's the same little menu that pops up when I hover my mouse over images for more than a second. Pretty annoying when I play flash games.

The Knitted Mittens is awesome, how long did it take to finish?

Hmm. Well, that sounds like you've got a loading error, the like of which Flash sometimes generates. Try clearing out your cache and giving it another go. There's no good reason why it should hang at that point unless there's been a problem with the loading.

Annoyingly, when you export sounds to be triggered by code (which is essential if you want to have things like volume controlled by code too) they are all exported so that they load before any of the graphics do, which is more than a touch irritating; why set up Flash so that you can create preloaders but then have your sounds needing to be loaded before the preloader loads? Grr...

Yeah, I can image it would be. It's unusual for a browser not to bring up the standard Flash context menu.

I think she did it in her spare time in less than a week.

I'll tell you something, it's bastard hard with the trackerpad on my laptop! laugh.gif

Also, knitted mittens looks very sweet, must be an odd thing to knit though...

Can you believe it? Someone's got nearly 100k on the easy level now!

EDIT: 202k!!!!!! Blimey! It got in the b3ta newletter, so that's probably going to make it very popular. There'll be some still competition. I'm still in the running on medium though smile.gif

I love the new avatar. I want to cuddle it, for it abounds in fuzziness! Loved Monkeys in Space for a while, but I'm very bad at it. I really liked the "you lose" screen where it says what the aliens did to you. The different losing dangers made me laugh. Good job! smile.gif

Don't hold down the thrust button. Short bursts give you more control.
