Or any game like that (EG bowling). I have an idea, but will I get counted off if I use ascii graphics? I wanna make a pure-text entry, and I suck at GFX.

For those of you that don't know, that pic is a link... I found that out on accident. Fun game! I like the idea, but you should do a small remake that is like space invadors. Really nice gravity effect going there.

And SWEET JESUS that is disturbingly similar to mine, considering the fact we'd never discussed our ideas...

Can it use only ONE KEY (ex. accepts SPACE but not G) or can I use any key? (ex. accepts q,w,e,r,t,y,u,i....)
