Rather than just make this a web page purely for Tower Power, it's now a web page for all of my programming projects.
Sadly that's not as exciting as it sounds :( Presently what it means is that as well as downloading Tower Power 1250 T.E. , you can also download Breakout 3D GL .
My plans are to add real physics to the multi-ball mode in Breakout, and then finish TP1250.

Sadly, most of my work on these projects is indefintely "on hold". My reasons for this is that I started TP1250TE as a University project, which I had every good intention of completeing. Then after finishing my MSc I started working on Breakout GL, while unemployed and looking for my "1st break" into the games industry. Well to cut along story short, once I got offered my job at Interactive Entertainment as a programmer I got slack, and took a well earned rest from developing my games before I started getting paid to program computer games .
18months later (September 2001) I've left Interactive Entertainment, for various reasons! Now would be the ideal time for me to get back into TP1250, or breakout, but I've started learning Dreamweaver instead! Bascially the computer games industry isn't as cool, or as much fun as it should be :( So I'm gonna take the money and run, i.e. get paid more money to do a "proper" job! Sad but true :(
While you're here, maybe you would be interested in what I did in my previous employment, which also outlines my decisions for my career path or just look at my CV.
