Blade Runner Competition

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

blade-runner-competitionI built a PHP gallery for the Blade Runner origami competition. It was a fairly decent online gallery that allows people to upload images, see them as thumbnails, rate pictures and report inappropriate entries.

The competition wasn’t entered by a lot of people (the instructions for the origami were complicated and hard to follow), but the site is still quite a nice piece of work.

Dareway Invasion

darewayUse the cursor keys to dodge the incoming laser blasts from the aliens on your Dareway scooter.

The Dareway itself is a cheap copy of the Segway scooter for children, only with none of the cleverness of the original. This microsite was to promote the toy, and the game was rushed together from the Silver Surfer games. It plays OK for a few minutes, but is never going to set the world alight with new concepts! Watch for the tell tale green glow of the laser lines approaching to anticipate where you’re being fired at from, and reposition yourself to avoid getting hit. Take too much damage and you’re out.

Silver Surfer DVD

silver-surfer-2Use your mouse to control the dark Silver Surfer whilst being chased by the light Surfer, and shot at by rockets. This is a very quick reskin of the earlier game with few extra elements. Frankly, the earlier game plays better, so I won’t be offended if you skip this one!
