Rapid Prototyping - KlikShot

So, I post here again. Don't ask why, just accept it.

I made something. It's not quite done yet, no sound, shit gfx and one or two bugs I suspect, as well as little balance in the score system, but we have the core of something here.

With this game, you are the little white ship in the bottom of the screen. You have to assemble a war machine for the mighty empire, so that they don't kill your dog or something. But the empire never turns these things off, so as you create it, it's going to shoot at you. Get it? It will make sense when you start playing it, don't worry.

Please be brutal in the comments. I'm not going to learn otherwise. Instructions are in-game.

Spam

So about an hour ago a spambot replaced the contents of my MIKE TYSON'S JUNGLE BEAT blog post with some garbage text and links. This naturally made me freak out, because I was pretty sure that random users couldn't just go around editing other users' blog posts.

After doing some research, I discovered that the reason that the spambot was able to do that was because I had made my blog post into a wiki page, so that I could link to it nicely, I guess. This is the first time that a spambot has edited our wiki.

We get a fair amount of comment spam right now that is caught by the automated spam filter, but that's happening much too late for my tastes. We must have hundreds of spambots who signed up and haven't posted anything (defeated by my email that doesn't contain a login link, perhaps), and whose accounts remain active.

Here's some stuff I'd like to do in the near future:

  1. Set up a captcha for the user registration form.
  2. Set up Project Honeypot -- I googled the IP address of this particular spammer and discovered that Project Honeypot already knew about him.
  3. Regular database backups! I'm ashamed this isn't already happening.
  4. Our wiki does not currently have a proper edit history; I have never managed to make it work. Make that work! If spammers start editing our wiki, I don't want to have to resort to the Google cache to fix it.
  5. Investigate how difficult an upgrade to the latest version of Drupal 5 would be, so that I can keep up with the latest security updates. If it had been an SQL injection attack, I'd have been more or less helpless to stop it without simply taking the whole site down.

Soooo, I focused on an aspect of Pokemon and ended up with a game that has nothing to do with Pokemon but you know, like, whatever.

Pest Control in Space

PestControlInSpace.png

My first (last?) Batari Basic game.

You are Harry the Space Bug Exterminator. You know how to exterminate just about any intergalactic pest. You even have your own custom space ship for clearing out some of the more... problematic infestations, and no hive is too big for you to handle. Maybe.

Seems like the New Horizons Space Life Megacorporation just hired you to take a look at their bug problem. They claim that space station residents are mysteriously disappearing, and they suspect it has something to do with that giant space wasp nest that's been forming around the exterior. You don't like the look of it, but somebody's gotta try and take care of it.

Notes:

- You can destroy the hive and bees more quickly the closer you get to them, but if you don't leave yourself at least some distance you'll put yourself in great danger.
- Don't try to fly to the right of any bees unless there's an emergency. Once they notice that they've passed you they will try to ram into you.
- Clearing out individual rows of the hive will make the bee spawn location more predictable. Use this to your advantage.

You'll probably want Stella to play this on. Or I guess you could get it running on a real Atari 2600.

I can't keep track of the carnage

So I went away up north to bask in the sweat and rain and deadly jellyfish - for a week - and when I came back today I found this hive of activity slightly overwhelming. That is, overwhelming in a good way, like having to choose between Gael García Bernal and Benicio Del Toro (in Dr. Gonzo mode) to be your orange-hotpants-wearing cabana boy. And then I thought, what about Marky Mark and Donny and other new kids on the block? They might find it a little hard to find all the trains that have piled up over the months.

What I am trying to say is I think maybe the "Hosted Trainwrecks" part of the site could be kept updated. Not by one person, but by everyone. It could even be tabulated or something, with columns for name, creator, status, last modified, and links (to final zips and dev. nodes, etc, so people can see how it all came together). Of course I realise to start and maintain this would be a pretty big effort, but if everyone tends to their own wrecks, and gentle prodding is given to those who don't update the Hosted Trainwrecks page, eventually it wouldn't be too much of a hassle.

Thoughts?
