About two weeks ago I got an email through my website asking if I could customize my free arcade game WordPress theme – Atari Command. The individual was looking for me to use graphics from the classic game Super Bug in the header, just doing a simple swap with anything that was Missile Command related.
Short, easy, and well defined I just cranked this design project out really quick last week in a break from class work. (more…)
In late April 2008, I did a Donkey Kong themed WordPress layout with the intentions of making it into a free downloadable theme. However, as time passed, I realized that I didn’t want to give that theme away for free, so I attempted to make a more generic arcade game theme, on based on the games of Atari. (more…)
I am curious what you guys think. If Rotheblog started to come up with arcade game WordPress themes, which would be the first these you would like to see done? Vote on the poll below.
Now, if I haven’t listed your favorite arcade game here and you feel like there should be a WordPress theme for it, leave a comment instead below the poll. The arcade games listed here are some of the most popular and therefore most universal in interest. Plus, some classic game artwork doesn’t lend itself well to a WordPress template. Tron – yes. Sinistar – It could be done, but not as easily.
Oh, and I have purposely left off Pac-man (all variations) and Galaga for the obvious reasons. You can vote for them in the comments, but those votes will probably fall on deaf ears.
I’ll be curious to see the feedback.
