@OddBall:  You, Sir, rock the world with iron fists of steel!  I'll see how Melly likes that.  Thanks!

You shouldn't use such a dishonest file host. Now my first impression of your game will be fear over downloading malware.  Lips Sealed

Will get around to trying this later.

@Soulliard:  Give me some constructive feedback such as the name of a preferred host and I'll consider changing.  I've tested eSnips behavior just before posting this and I still JUST get my zip file when clicking on it.
http://www.esnips.com/doc/086b21d9-9141-40d7-a68d-2e6ba03acff8/TIGCandyBar

Once there click on "Download TIGCandyBar.zip"

Consider judging my game by playing it.  That's why we're here right?

Don't worry, I'll judge the game by its own merits when I get to it. But bad file hosts are still unpleasant to deal with. The problem with eSnips is that it has multiple download buttons, and only one of them downloads the game.

Here's a good run-down of some of the better free file hosts:

Nice little game. I think the play area looks a bit messy though. I had to read the (very funny) PDF manual to figure out what was going on.

Wow! Retro-nostalgia overload. This is just the kind of game I used to pick up at the local newsagents for £2.99 as a kid. Very shallow gameplay, but I played long enough to get up to level eight. I figured it all out before reading the (mildly funny) manual, just like I used to in the old days. Good work. Hand Thumbs Up Left Smiley

The manual was indeed pretty amusing, and the game itself felt like going back to so many years ago. Gameplay's simplistic and the controls don't seem to work perfectly, but for some reason those things don't bother me when I imagine this could be played on a real 2600 console.

An authentic, engaging 2600 game in all respects. Nicely done. Grin

To summarize: a real app became a fake retro artwork joke which became a real retro game based on the fake artwork for the real app.

Yeah, the PANIC guys are pretty cool!  I had no idea about Derek being an intern there though Smiley  One of my few requests was a shout out to TIGSource and Batari BASIC.  This turned out to be my most successful competition run ever  Kiss
