    12. 20. Fun! Well, what can I say? This ought to be front-paged for the real madness to begin, assuming the player limit is going to be raised. But even as it is the game about tiny circles kept me clicking violently late at night. The simplicity and pointlessness of the gameplay attracted me greatly. To defend your creation from the hordes of &quot;assholes&quot; (sorry guys, nuthin personal) is awesome.
