Eh? Who? What? ... Me?

Enthusiasm rekindled again by Puppytron! But the curse of idea overflow has got the better of me!!

What shall I do next?

I really like the 320x320 window format, so I want to do another nice simple little game where the objective is to dominate the hiscore table. It's got to be hardcore action and codeable in under 4 weeks.

Got any ideas?

You seem to have a great mind to be able to take old games add a twist and make them your own. So looking at older games could be a way to go. You taking your own spin on Missile Command or Dig Dug would be something I'd like to see.

How about Gyruss? Or maybe something along the gauntlet style?

Take a look at that: http://www.flasharcade.com/game.php?moonlander That's actually cool! Smiley The gravity force is very well simulated.

Pole Position. Everybody loves Pole Position.

Failing that, Tron Light Cycles. Gotta love Tron Light Cycles.

If that still doesn't meet the goal, then how about Defender? Defender probably has the best chance for high end special effects as well. Plus the lime green jellies can return as aliens who's eaten humans (nee, fluffies)! :-)
