Maze (3948 bytes)

A first-person perspective maze game. Arrows at the bottom of the screen allow you to move forward in the direction you are facing or turn left or right. You can also drop and retrieve breadcrumbs to find your way. The data for the 20-room maze is hard-coded in an array. The display is updated using simple image replacement.

Fridge Pomes (4317 bytes)

A dhtml drag and drop magnetic poetry thingy. 20 words are randomly picked from a collection of 60 (donated by the friendly folks at Blast Radius who had no idea what I wanted the words for) - duplicates will occur. If you aren't happy with your word collection, hit the recycle button to generate a new lot. Style sheets are used to create the word borders. And I did mean to mis-spell the word poems.

Space Invaders - Atari 2600 (5065 bytes)

As close to the Atari 2600 version of Space Invaders as I could get with <5k. I had to leave out the shields, multiple lives, explosions, sounds and the ufo but everything else is in there. A - left, D - right, space - fire. Anyone over 25 will know what to do. It gets tricky by the 4th screen. Uses more nasty tricks than I would care to admit. Works best in IE on Windows (it's a bit jerky on the Mac and may kinda lock you out when things get fast in later screens in Netscape).
