…It’s TGI Friday: Defender Of The Favicon?

Defender Of The Favicon

Defender Of The Favicon is definitely the smallest game ever featured on DYH.

Designed as a test to see how far you can push the concept of a generated favicon, the idea was to pack a retro shooter into 16×16 pixels using JavaScript, Canvas and Data: URIs

From start to finish, the game took just three nights to complete.

To get everything working: Each frame is generated on the fly in JavaScript into a 16×16 canvas element, then converted to a 32bits PNG images and used in place of the Favicon.

    The game logic isn’t really complex but remains true to the original Defender and provides enough action for 16×16 pixels. The original game mechanics would make Defender of the favicon insanely difficult. Therefore a few adjustments were done : none of the enemies fire at you, your Defender got upgraded with a shield, and finally the Landers do not mutate into unstoppable war machines after abducting a humanoid but wander in your general direction.

…Everything Must Go?

Everything Must Go

GrandOpening, the store featured previously on DYH, has just reopened, and is now called Everything Must Go, The Lower East Side Auction House.

    It’s spring! Empty your apartment of all that drab furniture. Better yet, move and leave all that old stuff behind. This weekend, The Lower East Side Auction House can help you get started.

It looks to be yet another very successful iteration of the GrandOpening idea, so if you’re in the New York area, then definitely stop by and check it out.
