Time is pretty hard for a "Rockstar ate my Hamster" remake :)
Would've been on my list with a bit more time.

Stars

• A star is any massive gaseous body in outer space, just like the Sun.
• S.T.A.R.S. The name is an acronymn for Special Tactics And Rescue Squad (or Service).
• Used in Roman Candles, Aerial Shells, Rockets, and Mines. Can come in many different shapes like round balls, squares or cylinders. Produce the colors when they burn.
• Shipment Tracking And Redistribution System
• A term used in the Boston Group Matrix. Stars are high growth businesses or products competing in markets where they are relatively strong compared with the competition.
• Stars is a wood engraving print by the Dutch artist M. C. Escher which was first printed in 1948.

Crap... I've got a huge logic bug I can't figure out.

Crap. My compiler keeps throwing exceptions, and I can't figure it out. I guess I am out.

Improvise....

try{/*All game code here.*/}catch(Exception){MessageBox.Show("You've been eaten by the logic bug, " +                 "better luck next time.\n\nGameover!");}

Joe: aww shi**y f*k f*k
Jill: ???
Joe: I keep dying for no reason, this game is soo bugged.
Jill: Oh sure, blame the game... pfftt

Yikes, panic... but I'm starting to finally get something resembling gameplay going, after wrestling with a ray/line intersection bug for like half an hour. Time to add some sparkles and hope I don't break anything :P

50 minutes left folks.

Damn, I have game mechanics but no goals or challenges!
What to do, what to do... argh, the pressure! ;)

EDIT: (a short break and some candy later) Ok, I think I've got it... just need to implement it in 15 minutes or so, yikes.

10 minutes!

I would just like to say, anyone who gets a decent game done in 3 hours deserves loads of props. I've been working on this since 10 GMT and through one lame reason or another haven't got anything playable enough to call a game.

Maybe I'll finish it off tommorow and put it in my showcase or sommit.

Night all.

Oh, I forgot that I made this for you guys. Unfortunately, I don't have a goatee anymore, and my hair is very short.

I'm done, it's here in case the mail fails: zip file (130 k or so)

Game complete!

I decided to throw in a pirate/ninja element. I didn't get to participate in the last contest but I did want to start a pirate and robot (maybe a little bit of ninjas) game.

Sent my entry, incredibly smart title "Stars".

If the email doesn't work, it's uploaded to my website here.

Two screenshots:

Can we upload it to a personal site or do you want it e-mailed? (Not sure who is judging and what not).

Crap, I just realized mine isn't very challenging after all... should have tweaked it a bit differently. Oh well, at least it's innovative or something :)

EDIT: I took the liberty of tweaking it and put up a new version: new zip
(I mailed it too)

I don't know how tight you are about the deadline, but if it's ok I would like to enter this as the final version...

okay guys, I need to interact with my family now, so keep the submissions coming in, but I won't be able to judge and post the reviews until later. Expect this link to house the submissions.

it's best if you email me as it's easiest for me to keep track of all the submissions.
