Pixels are sexy

Don't you agree?

Trevor van Meter sure knows his way around pixel creations.
The amount of time that goes into creating these 'little pieces of art' - I don't even want to know.
The results on the other hand are more than impressive.

One of his works made for Verizon is a fun bobsled game called 'Xslide Challenge'.

Goal of this game is to go down the sled track as fast as possible.
To make it a bit more fun and challenging you get to create your own male/female characters by chosing their hairstyle and weight.
The last one will most likely affect the speed at which you go down the track with.
And if you're more of a solo player, you can always pick the skeleton instead of the bobsled.

Prepare yourself to crash into the wall because the game is not as easy as it sounds.
(not for me anyway)

Measure Map anyone?

I'm not sure if they even work with invites but this is something I really want to use on my blog here.
Recently acquired by Google, Measure Map is the ideal tracking tool for bloggers.
Nothing too fancy like Google Analytics with (too much?) detailed information, but good enough to know how people get to your site and what they do on it.
You know, the basic tracking stuff but fitted in a really nice lay-out judging by this screenshot:

Anyway - just wondering if anyone reading this has had the chance of using this and what they think of it?
But more importantly, what about an invite? =)

Rich Racer

A really nice 3D racing game with nice graphics but also with quite a few bugs.
Cars seem to sink into the road sometimes and and it could also use some audio, but other than that it's a nice little racer that can keep you busy for a while.

Have Fun!
