It's a joke, son, I say it's a joke*. That boy's about as sharp as a sack full of wet mice....

(It's a running gag from the Rubix thread where I said I was going back to working on my Curling sim... )

It is (or will be) a horizontal scrolling shooter along the lines of R-Type, Gradius, Salamander/Lifeforce, Silkworm, etc...


*Though a 2600 curling game that yells a digitised "SWEEP! SWEEP!" is such a crazy idea, I might just have to do it...
