Mission: Impossible (And Silly)

OK, minions, I have a task for you.

We all know Galactus, Devourer Of Worlds.

And many of you know Sinistar, the greatest video game of the early 1980s.

Well, these have, on some level, a pretty strong similarity. To wit, compare and contrast this...

...with this:


...and this:

Now, you know what would be cool? If someone more computerly than I could hack Sinistar, and put Galactus' face on the bugger.

I'm not looking for some photoshop job--hell, I could do that myself (albeit badly).

Nope, I want to actually PLAY the game Sinistar, but against Galactus' head instead of Sinistar's.

The prize for whomever accomplishes this? Undying nerd worship from both comic nerds AND video game nerds.

Go to it, code monkeys--FLY, FLY!!!

(editor's note--snell doesn't really expect this to come to anything. But a boy's gotta dream, right?)

A friend sent me a link for your blog, and I decided to take you up on your mission.

That is a very tightly cropped screenshot. It's currently playable, but unfinished. I hope to have everything in the first level finished in a week or two.

(Of course, now that I've said that, a meteor should crash into my house at any moment.)

If you'd like me to send you a beta when I get to that point, drop me a line at, and I'll figure out a way to get it to you.

Anyway, thanks for the idea, and take care!

Well, damn.
Did Neal complete this? Is it out there? Did you feature it in a later post? I don't remember!

Oh, the suspense...
