The background is up and our little streetie knows that he should be behind certain objects and in front of others =D
Have a go at it here http://jnoodle.com/hobo101/demo/
Also, there are quite interesting ideas concerning…"
"Just an update on whats happening with the demo mini game. You can play it here: http://jnoodle.com/hobo101/demo/
