Back to basics

Mobile Lifestyle is now changed to the Minimal template from blogger.com to facilitate gradual improvements. I didn't quite like the previous template anyway and it was kind of messy after my meek attempts at improving it. I hope this new template will allow me to build on something basic and improve it along the way.

SPUG down again...

This is the second time this year. Duh... just when I thought it was chugging along fine. Hope the server is not wiped out or anything drastic.

Update: Finally there's a notice on the site. But its on spug.sg, not spug.net.

Dear SPUG members, Due to a hardware failure, our site is offline until we get this fixed. - SPUG Comm - 27 Oct 2006

Spout (Zodiac game)

From the developer of Noiz2sa for the Zodiac comes a new game called Spout ported from the PC. It is a simple yet fun game which is hard to put down once you get the hang of it.

Although the graphics are in greyscale using basic blocks, you will look pass it once you are comfortable with the mechanics of the game. You control a moving square object with the joystick using the left and right directions to turn it. Pressing the fire button allows you to spray a stream of dots which serve two purposes; to propel your square in the opposing direction and to blast through walls. The objective of the game is to move up the screen and not crash into the objects or the left and right edges of the screen.

The only glaring issue with this game is that it is an endless game so the only main target is to beat your previous score. There are no bosses to kill or variations in gameplay other then increasing difficulty in penetrating ultra thick walls. However if you look pass this, it is a very addictive and challenging game to pass the time.

The game gets progressively harder as you need to break through sparse areas with little or no empty space.
