Touch KO Another Example of Sloppy Programming

Back in 2004 my brother brought home Fight Night. It quickly became a game where me and my brothers put our egos on the line (and consequently made angry accusations of cheap fight styles and cheating). To put it simply, it was fun.

An Addicting Little Game (free!)

I think I am late in finding this game, but that doesn’t matter. What does matter is that it is ultra simple and fun. It’s called Squares 2 and all you do is move your square around collecting the other black squares while avoiding the red ones. It was made by Gavin Shapiro, but I couldn’t find an official website anywhere (though it isn’t hard to find a copy of this game on dozens of websites). If anyone has an idea where to look let me know.

hint: if you want to play it in a big ol’ window go directly to the file.
hint2: you can right click and download the file using the above link to play it off line (just open the file in your browser)

Also, if you hate the music just lose quickly. After you lose you have the option to turn off the music.
