YO MAMA by the Organ Grinder's Monkey

Elsewhere this issue you'll find a review of the In Da 80's expo - the Yo Mama Demo is a smallish demo I wrote with my Organ Grinder's Monkey hat on on the Saturday. I seem to remember the coding was sandwiched between pints of Fosters lager and an interview with Kevin "Crazee Rider" Edwards. It was inspired by an iPod application and simply runs through a list of amusing 'Yo Mama' insults - there are sixty of them in total.

At the bottom of the screen, you'll see there are some guest appearances from the sprites from Mixed Grill March, Hard Hat Harry, Mazezam and Repton The Lost Realms which were four of the games Retro Software demoed or released at the In Da 80's show. The snake from Hyper Viper unfortunately didn't easily fit into the screen real estate left over so it was sacrificed.
