Grammar Nazi

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Feb 6 2008: This is what I posted while the site was down. And yes, I’m still waiting for the shell access rights from my old hosting company…

I’m still waiting. My ex hosting company hasn’t given me a shell access, so I could fix the SQL tables and get my blog back up and running. It’s been now 9 days and I’ve been in contact with them several times and they still haven’t been able to give me a shell access or fix my SQL tables.

In the meantime I did a quick one day game, which I’ll provide here.

I’ve been fighting the urge to do a SHMUP for a long time. The indie SHMUP genre is a very interesting and a lively one. So greetings to you all, I admire your work and I hope I haven’t cloned anyone’s game without knowing it!

Instructions

You’re the grammar nazi, fighting poor English usage everywhere you go!

Type in letters to fire. You can do damage to the poor English (the boss enemy thing) if you manage to spell a word correctly. Longer words do more damage than short ones.

Controls: your keyboard
