Free Game of the Week - Sobics

Diverting, original game in the "increasing rows of stuff coming from above" genre. I like the gameplay mechanic.

Free Game of the Week - Winter Drift
Games: Posted: 8/1/07 14:28 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 26 Comments

Thanks for the response from last week, this one is also fun and addictive but a tad more skill-based and seasonal.

Still, there's a definite tactical element in the order of the boards...

Free Game of the Week - Tower Defence
Games: Posted: 3/1/07 19:07 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 94 Comments

Sorry about last week. I was away.

Anyway, this excellent strategy game is apparently based on a Warcraft 3 mod, but it stands on its own and is more addictive than most similar excercises. Early decisions will greatly influence what happens in the end...

Free Game of the Week - Railroad Tycoon
Games: Posted: 19/12/06 08:59 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 5 Comments

Well, here is the game that cemented Sid Meier's acute understanding of the Strategy genre a year before Civilization, released as freeware for the first time. It's a fairly obvious FGoTW candidadte so I don't really have to say any more I think. Thanks Qaj for the suggestion.

Click "downloads", "Railroad tycoon".

Free Game of the Week - Snowdriftland

It's not often you get to feature a full-sized, 24-level platformer in FGoTW, possibly because they take quite high production values most amateurs don't have. Luckily, this is professionals we're talking about, and not just any proffessionals: this is a promotional game made by nintendo and the polish is excellent for a flash game.

One new level a day will be opened till christmas, so there's 11 to chose from right now. Can you collect all the crystals?

Free Game of the Week - M&Ms Dark Chocolate
Games: Posted: 4/12/06 18:06 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 12 Comments

Let's face it, if you want fun games that have appeared on this site, none have engrossed people more than that poster thing from Virgin where you had to find 50 band names, and that wasn't even a proper web game or a FGOTW! Here's my semi-lame, derivative attempt to rectify that: here you have to find 50 horror or thriller movies instead.

(It's still rather fun.)

See, If you just send stuff to me I'll post it. Whether I like it or not. This is Scud Wallaby's suggestion - great graphics, but not really my cup of tea otherwise.
