Hyperspace Delivery Boy, by Monkeystone Games, is something of a glorious trainwreck. Starring a young boy named Guy Carrington (whom I have lovingly decided to nickname "Fetchy McQuest"), you must navigate through the cargo bay of a spaceship, the catwalks of an alien dungeon, box pushing challenges, and, if I'm not mistaken, occasional graphics ripped from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Prepare your ears for an onslaught of catchy nonsensical phrases voiced by tremendously amateur actors, as well as the wonderfully out of place squawking of a chicken. All this and more on your quest to find and give people the things that they want!
Now, taken out of context, Hyperspace Delivery Boy isn't really that glorious of a trainwreck -- it seems much more like the usual kind of derailing that happens in high schools and colleges around the globe. However, if you happen to take a peek at the names of the all-star cast behind it, the gloriousness becomes readily apparent. Oh how the mighty have fallen (or at least stumbled a bit a few years ago).
Unfortunately only the demo seems to be available; attempting to take the steps necessary to acquire the full game leads one to a website of questionable taste.
I'm using a web control to display a game and author info -- name, description, screenshot, etc. However, I am in desperate need of help to make these pages look vaguely passable. I've attached a few example pages to this post -- if you have any skill with HTML/CSS at all, please download them and suggest how to improve the design. The HTML is easy to change, but I'd like to keep it simple; the more you can do in CSS, the better, because then it becomes easier to use everyone's contributions. (I've already got a button that changes the menu from sane colours to Hot Dog Stand, so there's no reason we couldn't do something similar for game descriptions.)
I know we've got some absurdly talented people here. I wholeheartedly appreciate any help with this at all.
PS. The web control is IE. Sorry.
In this game you are a legendary thief that is stealing everything.
Oh noes, all the cattle dun got eaten and you can't 'ford the river none! Yous must survival!
I should focus on game making from now on.
A horizontal shooter with action generated based on your music. OH YEAH.
(Except it's not your music, it's glorious late 70's German pop.)
Anyone who's played GALAGA '88 will know that the normal GALAGA "challenging stage" has been replaced with a bonus round that begins with the words "THAT IS GALACTIC DANCING"
My whole game is a stupid GALAGA '88 joke.

I repurposed Demon Kogure's sprite from Seikima II: Akuma no Gyakushuu for Famicom. Now he's a young devilocked Glenn.
I am Prince Abdul Diarb, a citizen of the United Republic of Nigeria, and the eldest son of the late Chief Bundu Diarb. Our country had in the past been involved in a very horrible and hostile war in which Revolutionary United Front led by Edacra Sutcac committed so many atrocities against humanity. My father who was a collaborator to the rebels was killed during the war because of his inability to produce over Sixty Billion Great British Sterling Pounds (£60b) given to him by the Revolutionary United Front.
Before my father's death he disclosed to us of an existence of two sealed trunk boxes, which he kept in the underground vault in Redwop, which he said contained the sum of Sixty Billion Great British Sterling Pounds (£60,000,000,000.00).
We immediately went back home and found the boxes intact, we took to my father's advice and fled out of the country through the costal river, after days of sea travelling with the trunk boxes intact we arrived in Lwarc where we hurriedly deposited it in a security company that took the boxes to Ihsorak as family valuables, withholding truth of the real content of the boxes. Now the war has ended we have considered it safe to remain outside the country and to return back to our country, since we have lost all our properties confiscated by the new government of president Klahc Nuronid.
I have a limited knowledge in the business world, hence the reason for soliciting your assistance to please make a residence arrangement for us in your country and to guide us invest this money in company. I have the consent of my mother, Nijukin Diarb, and we have resolved to give you 65% of the cash for assisting us. Every arrangement to withdraw out the consignment from the security company and subseguent movement into your country is guaranteed and it is risk-free.
I await your quick response to enable me give you further detail.
Thanks and God bless,
PRINCE ABDUL DIARB
