I remember the WTF moment I had a couple years ago when Frozen Bubble was released. The game was nice but the awesome bit was the it was based on PERL, which was my programming language of choice at the time.
I had that moment again this morning when an email arrived in my mail box from Rubem Pechansky (The WinBinder Guy) where he announced his Worldcup 2006 card game which is based entirely on PHP5 and Winbinder.
The graphics are great, and on my machine there is no noticable speed hit, in my opinion it is right up there with any other desktop game around.
It’s been a while since I was playing with winbinder, but looking at this application and the possibilites for simple client side deployment makes me want to take another look at it. That is if I can find time now that I’m trying to beat the (exceptionally smart) computer. Check it out yourself.
