flywrenchpong (Read 716 times)
Dec 10th, 2007, 7:00pm
So I spent Saturday afternoon writing a mashup parody of an obscure (by non-Indie standards, anyway) Indie game flywrench ( http://www.messhof.com/games/flywrench.php ) (you can see a teaser video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPDfvTDIicU ) and my own Atari 2600 game JoustPong http://alienbill.com/joustpong/

The resulting mix is called FlyWrenchPong:

(It includes an obnoxious sound track, kind of a bastardized version of the scratchy electronic music of the original, generated by slowing and "wah-wah'ing" the sound file I used to load my game into the Atari hardware during development.)

So, it's a joke that really only like 3 people should get (folks following both modern Indie gaming and Atari 2600 homebrews) but the author of the original game seemed to like it.
