Arteroids Jim Andrews Arteroids is the battle of poetry against itself and the forces of dullness. An online shoot-em-up poetry game. Play mode and game mode. In game mode, you have less control over the game's parameters. And your scores are saved to the net. In play mode, you can write your own texts in Word for Weirdos and save poetry from yourself. And go deathless, change the rate of fictive friction, change the density and velocity of attacking texts, and so on.
