Awesome Work Time-Wasters (Part II)

No sooner do I post the last epic work time waster than this total badass who goes by the name of Clive Robertson sends me a mail with a game that instantly brought on a flashback of when I was about 8 years old and I used to dick around on my dad’s 386 with Windows 3.1.

I think you know what I’m talking about here people.




Hit this link to check out this classic “blast-everything-around-you-into-tiny-bits-but-for-fuck’s-sake-avoid-actually-moving-in-any-direction-AT-ALL-COSTS” game all reskinned in shiny new graphics.

Some nice new additions I dug were:

  • Hitting ’L’ to automatically skip to later levels
  • Hitting ‘R’ to switch between modern and retro graphics, and
  • Hitting ‘A’ to add asteroids and ‘E’ to add enemy ships (skies the limit!)

Of course, after about 5 minutes of playing this classic you might be bored stiff, but the nostalgia value makes it worth at least clicking that link for old time’s sake.

TOTAL TIME WASTED: 5 – 10 mins
FINAL VERDICT: Mildly entertaining. *Just* beats doing actual work

I think we can do better here people…
