Cyberspace Game

Ellis's other class at Leonardo's Basement was called "Raiders of the Lost Junkyard," which was essentially free range to make something with junk. After seeing some kids makings "civilizations out of computer chips," Ellis thought he'd make a game called Cyberspace. There are three levels: Sky, Land, and Sewer plus a bonus arcade level. At the end of each chapter, you have to beat a monster called a "Cyberzilla."

The Cyberzillas are mostly hybrid creatures like things out of some crazy plastic toy mythology. In the picture above you can see Polar Bear on A Plastic Thing, Monkey Guy and Native American-Headed Spiderman (not pictured: Spiderman-Headed Toy Soldier)

There's also Starfish Guy:

Man-headed Bear:

And let's not forget Bear-headed Man

There's Video Game Guy who runs the arcade bonus level and looks like some sort of cyborg Freddy Krueger:

Ellis spends most of his time in the world of imagination, and it's cool when he makes stuff because it's a window into the kinds of things going on in his mind. I'm always delighted by the way he manages to play around with reality.
