Fun Facts
Team Awesome should not be confused with TOJam veterans "Team AwesomO". Your TOJam organizers should have prevented this from happening, but can you ever have too much awesome? Eventually, a Star Trek style duel will be held to determine the true owner. In the meantime, both teams shall live side by side in Smurf harmony.

Choon runs at 640x480, but it works in the game's favour. The game feels "gritty", and the moon feels "chunky".

Jim's Corner
Destroying the giant moon with your mouse controlled laser never gets old. It's easy to do, it's fun AND it's encouraged! Most games would require you to patiently dig into the moon - not so here. When you eventually grow tried of spelunking, hit the "escape upwards" spacebar for a treat. My new goal in life is to burrow into my backyard as deeply as possible, then hit spacebar. I had no idea that Python and Pygame (which are not hardware accelerated) could be used to create a game like this.
