Polka Dots: Techno DIY

This morning in my inbox Daily Candy left me nice little surprise. It's a Flash game called Boomshine and it's super simple. Here, I'll let the creator explain it to ya: "Boomshine is an addictive Flash casual game. Click the screen to start a chain reaction and try to explode as many dots as needed to pass a level. The game contains 12 levels ranging from the easy to the hard (only 3.97% of games pass level 12). Over 3 million games have been played by over 100,000 different players." Apparently, the Georgia Tech student and his girlfriend created this game in one night. Pretty cool, considering I don't even know why I've wasted 15 minutes trying to pass level 12. I got as close as 54 out of 55 stinkin' dots. Aesthetically I love the game because it reminds me of all those groovy 60s polka dot prints - dresses, mini-skirts, sofas, lava lamps. Give it try. I think you'll find it as fun as I do: http://www.k2xl.com/games/boomshine/

It IS addicting. I *heart* Boomshine. When this Studio Tour is all said and done with, I plan to make a necklace in homage to my new favorite 'puter game.
