Welcome to the 56ok.org

If you hear bandwidths of 10 Megabits in, 5 megabits out, and think that that's the service you get in a third world country, this is not for you. This is for people who lust after 10 Megabit connections and can afford one or more consoles. This website shows you how to get creative with online games, and find ones they don't automatically get kicked off of.

Avataaah: A dollar and worth every penny:

I like to play indie games. When you're poor and think there's too much joystick coordination in regular first person shooters, and add to that that you don't have the best bandwidth, (Mine barely qulaified as broadband at the time) it's tough to find online games. When I buy Indie games, I've had bad experiences buying them for the online experience. Some games are SO unpopular, you can buy them on day one and not find an opponent. That happened to me twice. If I like the concept of a game well enough, I bought it for a dollar. Thankfully there are games vs the CPU or else I would have felt ripped off. One game I DID buy on day one and was pleasantly surprised when I did was Avataaah. It's a rope jumping game similar to the first level of Jungle Hunt/Jungle King and the grenade paths in Worms games, where you swing on a vine and jump off. It takes into account your X and Y velocities and positions when you release the rope, and make gravity accelerate yourself down, and you got to land on a platform. Exact center lands are worth big points, and you got to be within a certain range or else you fall off the tree stump. It's a simple $1 game. It's not exactly telling an epic story, but what do you expect. It's a simple arcade game with one note. It's a more precise version of Jungle Hunt rope scenes. And it does it well for $1. I think this game is better than the Jungle Hunt rope sequence.
