Ludum Dare #3 (2003), theme Preparation. My game, PuffBOMB. Propel a hamster character to an end zone using bombs. Incredible Machine with explosives, burning, and screaming. . The original compo version, unfortunately, featured only 2 levels.
PuffBOMB scored a Silver for sound, and came in 5th place for fun.

After the compo, I continued to work on the game over a couple weekends, adding 10 actual levels to the game. Also, adding custom level support, due to Stephen Stair offering to build a level editor. The game was later featured on several on several game magazine coverdisks.

Eventually, in 2005, I went ahead and fancied up the original game for submission to the IGF and Slamdance competitions. Changed the graphics dramatically, toyed with some graphical effects like a cartoony fire effect, white outlining effect, and so on. Added a proper menu, and ported the game to the Mac.
PuffBOMB was a finalist for the “Popcap Casual Game Award” at Slamdance 2006.
Today, development continues on the so called “super remake” of the game.
