Anyone remember Black Hole by David Snow?

Postby Edward256 » Sat Nov 02, 2019 9:44 pm

Hello.
Many years ago when I was for the first time exploring the games on my new Atari Falcon I can across this strange little thing:
http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-st ... 23143.html
I just found it hilarious with all the sound effects. What was the goal of the game? Well, did anyone really care at that age? :shrug:

Some 25 odd years later (after learning quite a bit of programming) I revisit this game, decided to learn all the ins and outs of it, and recreated it as best as I could as an HTML5 app for all resolutions (still needs at least 256 colors :P), and all controls (Keyboard, Joystick, Touch).

Enjoy the madness, and if anyone knows where David Snow is hiding these days, throw him this link. ;)
