Three Web developers join forces to create an entertainment application.
The result is UFO Attack! A game with a lot of planning under the hood, but very few of our intentions realized.
NOTE: There's a bug! Debugging needs to be turned on for the full effect. Just change line 5 of lib/utils.py to:
debugFlag = True

"Labrynth with a Twist!"
Bugfix for linux users: reaname data/art/menusplash.png to menusplash.PNG (sorry!)
Our entry for Pyweek 5. The theme is twisted and our project hopes to score with our simple scheme of gameplay. The player controls a marble and the challenge is to find the end of the maze. To make the game fun, challenging and to fit the theme of the competition, we have created an interesting control scheme. By dragging on screen with the mouse, the player will be able to rotate the level around the marble. Gravity always acts upon the marble, down, relative to the screen. In this way the player can manuever the marble in all sorts of interesting ways. To coincide with the traditional traps of the original Murmel-Labyrinths the marble in this game will be fragile. Fall too far a distance and you'll shatter forcing you to restart.

|Monkey Typer (monkeytyper)|
— Twisted Twister - Final
The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type or create a particular chosen text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare. Given one monkey, and a typewriter, I bring you:
You are Sammy the Spotter, out to test your latest invention: the Tornado
Obliterator and Eradicator 3000 (TOE 3000). Using your spotter experience, you
drive out, keeping tuned to the Baker Weather Service (the best weather service
on the planet). Suddenly, you hear over the radio: "Tornadoes approaching!"
Perfect! This is the chance to see if the TOE 3000 will really work! You rush
on out, careful to stay in your car. This is it! Oh NO! There are houses here.
Maybe you can help them! Can you eradicate the tornadoes, save the houses, and
keep away from the lightning storm?

|Batwima Islands (_trobadour_)|
— my final package fo pyweek 5
Far away behind the horizon lies the archipelago of batwima. A collection of small beautiful islands floating around some twisting maelstrom(s). But not long ago an earthquake disturbed the eternal balance and now the islands are in danger to get sucked deep down beneath the water surface. Help the peaceful islanders to safe their homes and restore the balance of batwima.
Your islanders are scattered on several islands and your goal is to regather them. You can do this by spending some people to anchor an floating island, pull islands with ropes together and also release them. At last you can let your people wander from one island to another connected one.
Your only resource are your limited number of islanders, but beware of the scary tiger on flotsams ;)

The year is 1973. A madman with a grudge against telephone companies, calling himself THE TYGER, is planting bombs in telephone exchanges across the country, wired so he can set them off with a phone call.
Your task is to take the TWINKLE out of the Tyger's eye by tracing the connections through the TWISTED and tortuous circuits of the softly TICKING exchange equipment, and finding a way to disarm the bombs before time runs out.
Only you can save the country's vital communications infrastructure from being thrown into TURMOIL...
Note: The screen shot at right is NOT the last level any more, but screen shot uploading doesn't seem to be working at the moment.
