To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ColecoVision game system, here is 
my entry for the Minigame Competition 4k division 
(http://minigamecomp.co.uk).  Daniel and I were talking on one of the chat 
sessions, and somehow I got the idea to do something based on the location 
of the next AdamCon (Niagra Falls).  So after some research, here is what I 
have that fits in 4k.

You are the captain of the proud Maid of the Mist, taking tourists toview 
Niagra Falls.  Sounds easy?  Well, to keep from being fired you need to keep 
your ship in ship shape, by avoiding rocks and logs in your way.  Hit one, 
and your ship will slow, and you will risk falling behind.  Hit too many and 
you'll sink.  Watch for the dreaded whirlpools which are sure to sink you.

Here is a vid of the game play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zCeAwKt5wU

and attached is a screenshot.

Download and try it yourself:

Voting doesn't open until next week, but there are lots of fun games that 
you can download already from that site.
