As cool as it is, Airship 2600 is just about graphics; where is the playability?
How can you say that? Airship had some of the most revolutionary game play ever. Just because it didn't fit with your predefined notion of gaming (before or since) and used a unique control scheme it was the most solid game play ever.

I suppose I can understand, tho. A game that has such remarkably integrated game play as Airship 2600 it's easy to feel like it's playing you at times. Ah, but to be played like that, how can you complain.
A new game every week. Please visit Cymon's Games!

I found the roguelikish elements pretty interesting (save for the pretty disgusting random plot generator) but if the team had invested more time on content and less on flashy stuff, it would have rocked hard.

I work at Target, as a Cashier and Cart Attendant.  Blah.  Next month, I go back to school for my Master's Degree (in Education, so I can be a High School History teacher).  It's a 2 semester program that involves student teaching and taking classes at the same time, so no time for another job really if I want to get ANY sleep.  Yay debt, stress, and no free time!

I work in IT and am working on a masters in computer science.

Oh and the most revolutionary game play was polybius not airship 2600.  But I'm prevented from speaking freely on that game after the incident.
