This program will ask you to select an image. It will then turn that image into a terrain map which you use to create an island paradise. Your island will then be colonized by a ship full of pixels who will multiply and begin to convert the landscape into industrial sprawl. There is no interaction; the effect is supposed to be more like watching an ant farm than playing a game.
Some notes on performance:
I tried hard to optimize it this program, but there is still significant slowdown if you use a large image. I used one that was about 400x500 to good effect. Even then, once your island gets a large population slowdown is inevitable. I ran this on a dated laptop, though, so your mileage will vary. Theoretically, the program will keep running indefinitely even if the frame rate tanks.
I am having a rough time quitting cigarettes.
Click SMOKE to give in to the urge to SMOKE.
Click DON'T SMOKE to choose not to right now and stay an non smoking ex smoker. You will have to make this choice. You can smoke again any time.
This is your last pack. You thought that last time.
One puff and you'll be SMOKING!
Click smoke until frustrated enough, then click WALK AWAY to break the game.

When I was a kid I saw the Pokemon anime before I played the games. The games are awesome but I have always wanted something a bit more inspired form the anime, those ridiculous combo moves or those different creative ways to use each Pokemon.
This is a test drive of my imagination, something very small and simple to just put out there and see what others think of it.
I would some day like to make a complete game of this sort, something more complicated, where the players can catch and choose which Pokemon to use per battle, some randomness during battle, and even evolutions occurring during battle, a good story and etc. It is a bit too ambitious and so will depend a lot on how well this demo is received, so let me know what everyone thinks of it.
5 different endings, less then half an hour to beat all the endings, the player would have to choose an option from a list of two every now and then and see things unfold.

In this walkthrough, I will explain how to get past the bear without getting hit, and then finish the game. Some people claim to be impossible, however, I will prove them wrong.

Relive the glory days of gaming by getting a cartridge to work in your ancient console.
In case you've never experienced this kind of gaming before, here's the idea of the game:
All you need to do is press the power button and hope the screen turns on. Blow on the cartridge to increase the chances of that happening. If it STILL doesn't work, give it a good old wiggle side-to-side while it's in and try again. Make sure you get all the dust off!
Note: I understand that this is the wrong kind of cartridge for a top-loader but I had the SNES in mind even though I drew a NES cart. Anyway the console is just a box with a power button on it!
