Description


Jimmy Blastoff: Launch to Adventure is an Asteroids-like arcade game played only with the mouse and themed as a 1940's children's television show. The entire game takes place within the television set, without any "game-like" UI to detract from the experience. For example, score is portrayed through alien dialogue, losing focus on the game ends with a breaking news bulletin, volume is controlled through the television knob, and other screens are found by switching the channel. The game was developed in 23 hours for the AOL Games.com Hackathon.
