Mutating nostalgia

Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out.
(HINT)

Thus three free games, three flash retro remakes, three experiments in originality, shall be presented here, at this god-fearing, three-loving and always humble blog. Behold and tremble, mortals! (Ok, enjoy, too)

And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, and he clicked here and had a go at spASCII Invaders. A remake of Space Invaders, that's thankfully much faster, and uses rather brilliantly ASCII characters for graphics.




And the Lord did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and finally decided to play Duckhunt 1945. A silly game really, a Call of Duty - Duckhunt bastard that came to be after a drunken orgy, and usually resides here.


ONE! TWO! FIVE! What are we fighting for? What's Blockdude? Well, it's a pretty faithful remake, albeit with much improved graphics, of the TI-83 excellent puzzler Blockdude. All 11 original levels are present and 3 extra new ones have been added. Joy!
