- The Assassination Trilogy
- "The Assassination" began as a joint-project for the 1989 GATE/Honors
animation convention. Rene Robles storyboarded two carcitures from our real-life
"Cartoon Wars" saga: a long-nosed henchman from my faction, and a
round-headed assassin to fatally shoot him. Rene bit-mapped the artwork
while I programmed the movement in Apple //e BASIC. Following the
convention, I completed a sequel called "The Revenge," where a ninja
targets the assassin with extreme prejudice. The "trilogy" finally ended
with a prologue to the unfinished third installment, "The Roblen Vendetta,"
which ominously foreshadows the third target.
- Stick Man
- In addition to my "Assassination II" pet project, I programmed
an interactive Apple //e BASIC video game called "Stick Man". In level
one, the protagonist Stick Man must swing his invulnerable head to
defend his frail body from deadly projectiles. In level two, Stick Man
must hammer out sparks to keep an evil plumber from electrocuting him.
