Groovy! Very reminiscent of Crystal Quest (one of my favorite games as a teenager). Laptop users, plug in a mouse — playing with a trackpad is tough.
The graphics are simple, and it’s jarring having only one life, but gameplay is excellent and the soundtrack is hypnotic. A full-screen mode would be nice, along with more interesting themes.
W00t! Hi from the living room! This is the first time my PowerBook has been wireless in my house. I set up one of my linux machines as a bluetooth access point. It’s not nearly as fast as wifi, but I’m still not about to drop a hundred bucks on a new router.
The Mac version of DCSquares is starting to catch up to the Windows version again:
Right now my PowerBook is running Finder, Firefox, Mail, iTerm, AdiumX, BluePhoneElite, XCode, MythTV, XJournal, WeatherMenu, Salling Clicker, MenuCalendarClock, and a few other random things, and I’m not feeling any slowdown 🙂
Yay for memory upgrades!
So my PowerBook finally convinced me to get more memory (256MB RAM was just not enough for what I need it for). Crucial currently has free next-day shipping, so it arrived yesterday morning!
Yay, an extra 512MB now. That should be plenty.
Powerbook, meet LiveJournal.
LiveJournal, meet PowerBook:
He’s a 12-inch 1.33Ghz G4 PowerBook with 256MB RAM, 60GB harddrive, and a SuperDrive (CD-RW and DVD-ROM), and he arrived monday!
