Wormhole
:D Cover for an unreleased "Tempest" clone? :lol: Tounge in cheek... " A simple mission, to explore a new portion of space, but with ever new technology there are always technical issues... Navigate the Wormhole and find a path back to Earth!".... Sorely tempted to ask if anyone is considering writing new games inspired by these artworks :) ~~~~

Possibly of interest to people reading this thread, I've announced a "weekly daft teletext picture challenge" on twitter if anyone feels like having a go at a bit of mode 7. Beginners especially welcome :)

This week's 'theme' which kicked off the idea is 'a farm animal flying a plane'. Any animal, any plane, any style of image, any level of artistic ability. Just a bit of fun to get people posting stuff. :)

So as not to be accused of an off topic post, here are my two examples
Cow in a Tiger Moth
