Please let me know what you think.

There's a program called Milky Tracker which creates retro-style music. I'm not sure how to use it, but there may be some tutorials out there.

You could have flowers of different colours which have different qualities, such as white ones growing faster, red ones taking multiple hits, yellow ones being explosive (destroying nearby flowers and the ship if it is within range), etc...

The bees could be trying to construct a "sun" in the middle of the screen which would make the flowers grow faster still.

Just a few ideas to throw into the mix.

I have managed to secure Bruce Willis for Pie Hard.

I have put up a simple page:

Please keep an eye on it for future updates.

Rumour has it that the makers of the program used to make Christmas Specials of a different kind for a laugh. They didn't need to be festively themed, but were made for the entertainment of the cast and crew, and it was never meant to be viewed beyond the studio.

Looks like a VHS tape was leaked :)

If you liked the clip of the heavy metal song in the middle of 8-Bit Pwny Club 2, here is the full version:

That's a classic.

There's a sequel, but the original is better. It's worth watching though:
Animator Vs Animation 2

It looks like it was quite a tricky but fun piece to put together.

There are a few compatability issues regarding the 7800 playing 2600 games, mainly involving some of the later games with advanced bank switching hardware.

A must buy if you want a 2600 and have a friend to play with is Combat - OK, so it doesn't have a single player mode, but it was the first game released for the system, and it is a real test of skill, not luck, when it comes to beating your opponent.

If you need a coder I can collaborate with you online, even if it is something as simple as an icon or a web page.

I have (wait for it) figured out how to make an image move on the screen :)

The test demo in question selects an image at random, rotates it by a random number of radians, positions it at random coordinates, and starts it falling. Once it hits the bottom of the screen, the vertical speed is multiplied by a random negative number to simulate somebody knocking it back up.

Now all I have to learn are controls and collision detection, and I have the ability to make simple games.

That said, it was harder to register and connect the iPod Touch to the Mac for debugging purposes than it was to figure out how to use the SDK.
