Thanks to Martin Shaeffer’s DirectorForum I ran across some cool new Shockwave games. I’ve always loved games that break traditional molds, and this one is no exception. Hoverster (http://www.hoverster.net/) Was created by Chio Maisriml, Austrian designer and developer who by his own admission doesn’t fit into the mold of a conventional ‘gamer’. He agressively moved to make the game – easy to access and really, really fast. I’d advise starting with the multiplayer raceways – the farming alternative can be a little frustrating until you get used to the handling of the hovercrafts.
