Lately, a computer game has been eating my brain. It's not any of the mighty real-time adventure games like World of Warcraft or Everquest. It's not even Battle for Wesnoth. No, the game in question is an open source clone of a silly arcade game from the 1980s. Remember BurgerTime? Well, now there's BurgerSpace.

A few years ago, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] landley, I was experimenting with running BurgerTime under MAME. But the BurgerSpace clone works a lot better (at least until KMail crashes, which is still happening to me on a semi-regular basis). I'm also doing better at it than I ever did at the BurgerTime game--my high score is around 66,000, and I've gotten to level 8!

BurgerSpace preserves the silly graphics, and the silly sound effects, of the original, with only minor variations. It doesn't have the music, but since I always hated the music anyway, that's a plus.

Now I need to go do some law writing for work. After one more game. :-)
