In the Footsteps of Simeon Meade: Escape Kilmainham Gaol - Part II: The Evidence Locker
Part 2 of the Simeon Meade series.
This game has gotten better reviews, but much less play than the previous one.
It is longer and easier than the first.

4K Contest Entry
(latest revision: 2009/03/17)
GamePoetry.com had a 4K contest where all games entered had to be under 4 kilobytes (4,096 bytes). This is similar in style to the old Atari 2600 games, and it sounded like a fun idea.
Here is my entry: Gompers
The mechanic is similar to the Gladiator game I made a few years ago.
- You play a golden mermaid who is fighting off incoming cruise ships
- The character follows the cursor, the ships follow your character
- Clicking the mouse launches a harpoon. If the harpoon hits a ship while in flight, it damages the ship
- You have a finite number of harpoons. You have to retrieve your spent harpoons in order to use them again
- If you collide with a ship, the ship capsizes, and you lose 10% of your life
- Obstacles slow you down, and slow down the ships. Obstacles include: capsized ships and your seaweed net in the center of the screen
- Each level spawns ships, the number of which is equal to the level number (3 ships in level 3)
- Each level the ships get a little bigger, a little faster, and a little stronger (can handle more harpoon strikes)
- Each level you get one additional harpoon. If your health is below 100%, you get a 10% boost in health each level.
- The first few levels are intended to get the player familiar with the mechanics, later on the strategy involves trapping the oncoming ships amongst the seaweed and capsized ships
