Museum Monday #40

Monday. Or should I say the revenge of the mutant spinach-pie? You see, dear readers, yesterday's tequila(s), was served in a trendy little bar with excellent music (ranging from The Tiger Lillies to Einstuerzende Neubauten) and was accompanied by little (admittedly delicious looking) spinach-pies. It seemed like a fine idea at the time. Food poisoning on the other hand, wasn't mentioned.

Anyway. No Museum for this Museum Monday. Only a Game Sprite Archive, thus an ..uhm... archive mainly for retro 2d gaming sprites. Mostly at least, as backgrounds, sprite animations, maps, game music and even box-scans are also featured. Covered platforms include the 3DO, the Neo Geo dream machine, the Genesis and all of Nintendo's consoles, the Playstation, the Atari 2600 and the PC. Worth a visit, really.

    int wb = b->x + b->width;
    int hb = b->y + b->height;
    int bx = 5;
    int by = 5;

    if(inside(a->x, a->y, b->x+bx, b->y+by, wb-bx, hb-by) ||
