Just Sayin'

(Tony's highest score 'Sticky Situation' is 250. Mine is 404. Just sayin'.)

How to play my *very popular* game

A couple of days ago, I said I would throw up some tidbits on how to not get a thousand sticky darts stuck to your butt. I was lazy and didn't get around to it, so sue me!

Just in case ya'll havn't downloaded it yet, It's free! Which is the best cost of em' all, I think.

If you havn't downloaded it yet, YOUR A DARN FOOL!, its probably the greatest game of all time in my honest opinion. It is kinda hard though. That constant stream of pink sticky darts, can be very intimidating. The thing to remember is that you WILL get shot, and you will get shot ALOT. shot alot. The trick is picking when you get hit.

The "Scrub a dart off of you" shift button, works on a timer. When you hit the shift key, your ship does some magic flubermagoo and a sticky dart mysticly falls off. After that you'll have about half a second until your able to shake another one off of you. You don't have to hold down the shift key.

Use that fact to your advantage and don't hold it down. Just tap it every half second or so, and you'll have a steady stream of falling darts, while still being able to move around.

Which leads me to my next topic: " Moving around "
Every enemy will shoot there pink stickies directly at you. Not above you, below you, infront or ahead a little in the direction your moving.

Use this fact also, slowly move down and quickly study the stream of darts that flow towards your last position, there should be a pattern, and in that pattern will be a lul of stickies. As soon as you see it, reverse your direction and jump through it. Rinse and repeat...

I'm going to leave it like that, have fun playing Sticky Situation! : )

Sticky Situation

I got a situation for-ya
A game where you are a helicopter type thing, shooting sticky things, at alien dudes, to try to weigh them down and crash into the ground.

Be sure to let the tutorial play out, it isn't much, but you'll know more about it than you do now.

Be sure to leave a comment if you have one, good or bad.

Tomorrow, I will jot down some good little hints i've discovered during my time with the game.

Half-Past Thunder-Con

In the moon of the Thunder-Con's Twilight, I shall actually begin to celebrate Thunder-Con with
the release of a long-awaited sequel to a critically-criticized, fully-acknowledged franchise of BUN-E.

P.S. - If you have Small Basic, by Microsoft Dev Labs, installed, you can search through the code and get a sort of delevoper's commentary. Decide for yourself, if you go through with it, if it was worth it. Same goes for the entire game, too.

P.P.S. - Spotlight #7 - Dave: The Man

I'm Just Not A Con-Man.

What? Did you think something important was supposed to happen this day,
July 22nd, the Day of Thunder-Con?
No, it was just an excuse to have Thunder-Cake.

You haven't truly lived until you've had Thunder-Cake.

It's Comic-ON!

Some pretty cool stuff happened this year.

Anyway, 34th annual Thunder-Con is coming up, and we're heating up the bunsen burner.
It's been cool all winter-long.
Cause it's been off.

Thunder-Con is a convention that takes place in PA, somewhere in someones basement.
Actually, it's not fair to call it annual, because it happens everyday.
When Timmy opens up his Christmas present.
When Dorothy gets that new kidney.
When your next-door neighbour gets ONE night of your dogs sweet silence.
It's all around us.
Thuhder-Con cannot be stopped, no matter how much I misspell it.
It's the little noise inside our hearts that tells us we're happy.
Or hungry.

It's the beat that our drum goes to.
Even if you play a different instrument, if you know what I'm saying.
What am I saying?
I don't know.
I don't care.
You should.
Let me stop and tell you why you should care about July 22nd, or Thunder-Con.

- It's Thunder-y
- It's Con-nie
- It celebrates that which brought you such
reveared and revolting titles such as:

[Edited to include more recent titles.]
-LAZY BA-...uh...I mean BUN-E III.

That isn't just a list of games we've scrapped up in our pasttime and named in all caps.
It's a list of games we scrapped up in our pasttime and named in all caps for THUNDERWARE.

If not for ThunderWhere, ware would you be?
Woops, sorry-
If not for ThunderWare, where would you be?

Get ready.
Get set-itized.

Thunder-Con is go.

God Bless AmericaWare

I'm not gonna lie, I've been too busy to update this thing for the 4th. Big family reunion.

Lotta cake. Looked like the American flag. It was good.

Graduation season is over. Tired of going to graduations. They're fun, but my camera has so many graduation speeches on it, I'm gonna have to have a home movies marathon. Which, I have every week, but a different kind of Home Movies -

Alright, Happy 4th, and Happy Graduation Season.
