GNORF

by ippa - Competition Entry

========== IMPORTANT ===========
* 24 Aug: Fixed another crash (when you died + didn't get a highscore). Also changed the name to gnorf2.exe in the URL above to get past webcache.

* 23 Aug: Fixed a crash that sometimes appeared just after
you died.

Fun! I love that you've got a high score table, though I'm having problems getting into it - got to level 5 so far!
It also quits (crash?) when I die (downloaded windows version today).

@TomBom: that crash should be fixed since yesterday.. are you _sure_ you got the new ippa.se/games/gnorf.exe ? Cause I had that problem too before, but since the fix, I've never seen it.

@Covenant: tnx, did you take a high score? =)

Fun game! I made a highscore but when entering my name, I accidentally moved one step left from the A, selecting GO instead. I'm "D". :P

Nice! I wish I could restart at the level I failed, though, instead of going all the way back to the start.

I like it. It reminds me somewhat of Rampage.

Fun game-play, but the physics simulation was often a bit ropey. Online high-scores definitely a massive plus.
