A little update on the Copter game thing. This one turned out to be the most fun to use/play project of the three (the others were a twitter server with Node.js/MongoDB and a programmable web program/API involving turning text (漢字) into images).
I cleaned it up a bit and put it on github (it's a mess) for those who want to look at lazy hieroglyphs
For those only want to try it out you can get it here [1.5 MB] http://heartpirates.com/archives/CaveRace.zip
It's supposed to upload your highest score replay/name when you check the Top Scores
(it saves replays of runs) and upload it online RESTfully and show you (download) the top high scores (also replays). That should
work. Might not.Controls:
QW and AS (moves up and down, press both for maximum thrust). Otherwise Arrow keys and Enter/Backspace. + and - for music volume control.
You can toggle the Ghost player mode
for online top score or personal best or turn it off.
