Sploder (sometimes known as the Main Site to distingish it from the Forums) is a website for creating games to share with the world and to your friends and family. Because of this, most of the major Sploder updates have been regarded to the Game destroyer. This article details the following updates that have taken place. It has a counterpart website called the Sploder Community Forums, which is an internet forum. The game creators are written in ActionScript. [1]

2004-2007

Sploder began development by Geoff in 2004, and ended in 2007, when the very first updates were launched. Updates at the time only involved the Shooter Games creator, both Robot and Ship. The original content of the Shooter Games creator consisted of the basic following:

  • 3 moving enemies. (The Speeder, the Cruiser, and the Guard.)
  • 5 stationary enemies. (the Turret, the Launcher, the Mortar, the Magnet, and the Repeller.)
  • 3 obstacles. (Obstacle A, B, and C.)
  • Walls and Weak Walls.
  • 5 Power-ups. (The Health, the Missle ammo, the Mine ammo, the Bomb ammo and the Megahealth.)
  • "Collect the Crystals", and "Destroy all Enemies" game objectives.
  • 5 weapon types. (The Missle, the Pellet, the Laser, the Mine and the Bomb.)
  • An ally "Wingman" which is programmed to assist the Player in battle.

All of these features would be the content of sploder for a entire year, until 2008, when Geoff further improved the Game Creators with more updates.

2008

The famed "New Sploder" was added in 2008, and was recieved with much praise. New Sploder was an event that revamped and improved the design of the website and added more features and content. New Sploder also was the 1st major update to the Shooter Creator.

This update included the following:

  • 3 new stationary enemies. (The Reverser, The Drone Turret, and the Disruptor).
  • 2 new foes that can change side depending on who they are touched by (drone turret, tank)
  • New Power-up, The atomic which allows you to kill much more effectively.
  • 3 new Hazards. (Acid, Nitro, and the Door.)
  • Color-coded doors that require Spider Keys (to be defeated.) in order to be un-locked.
  • The forum was added on February 14, 2008. It revolutionized sploder like no other update ever had. Many mainsite members were soon addicted to the forum, and rarely ever logged onto the mainsite prior to their addiction.
