Here is a new Game I am developing. There is a slight problem in the Mozilla browser, but I was wondering what you think about it.
I am going to add some more features to it like seeing what is in the piles and automatic end game detection, but that is in the next couple of days.
Here is the game with a basic ASP(VB) High Score table.

Thanks for the input and happy gaming,
Eric

hmmm, okay I will add a link to the bottom of the preloader in case it gets stuck t oskip it. Just means the first game will not show up as fast. Netscape does not have a preloader on it.

Could you please let us in on the technology used and how you programmed it? (I mean the core concepts)

It is done in JavaScript/DHTML with very ugly coding and the HighScore table is ASP (VB) with an M$ Access database.
The game still needs work, but it is playable...
I did not even try to programm this game. I was working on a JS function to move an object. I then started to move a couple of objects, then I
moved more. Then I said, man this could be used for a game. An hour later I had the basic concept down. Then I spent a bit longer making the database. ASP is the ugliest coding language out there....

I still think my Othello game is the best so far, I gave up making the computer harder for awhile.
