I saw this post and thought "Wait a second, it's still Thursday!" But then I checked your profile and see you are in New Zealand, so you almost fooled me.

It's thursday here, bub.
Still fun, though.

I like it, but weirdly, when I get hit, all the windows on my screen zoom off the side. Is it supposed to do that? (On a mac, btw)

Wouldn't even work for me. On a mac, firefox.

That was fun. The grey team in my particular little roundup was pretty tough.

I'm confused, though. Does the single player version ever end?

Works on Camino on my Mac but man is my 12 inch burning up.

Twelve inch, um, what?

Not only works on my Mac/Firefox, but looks great on a big screen. The single player version really doesn't seem to have much of an objective, though.

Odd.

I actually seem to be good at that. After the first game or so, I was consistently the top scorer.

It is nice to know the years spent developing my skills in driving erratically and randomly firing large caliber firearms finally paid off.

Firefox/Mac combo says "unknown plugin needed."

Awesome.

Nothing like a never ending internet game to boost the productivity.

Not much to it, but pretty neat. It seems incomplete, like it's a pre-release or something someone built to show off what they can do (and, for that, it's pretty impressive).

I'd love to see this with some polish—more (and more satisfying) powerups, a bigger and more varied world, and some more goal-oriented gameplay.

I do love me some scotch, especially a good single malt, say Glen Morangie or Bowmore.
