Free Game of the Week - Magnetism
Games: Posted: 23/5/06 09:51 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 7 Comments

Fairly interesting beast this one. You get the sense that he should have focussed on one game mechanism instead of two and maybe thirty great levels instead of a hundred okay ones, but the basic concept is sufficiently original for it to be the best game I've played in the past two weeks or so.

Second one in a row, I might start doing this again now.

Avoid the little orange man and the objects he throws at you, but don't leave the blue area or you'll lose all your points!

Free Game of the Week - Levers

Brilliant graphic design and a challenging game all in one. I can't get past the head of god myself.

Free Game of the Week - Bugs!
Games: Posted: 1/1/06 17:06 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 4 Comments

I, er, stopped posting these. You might have noticed. Sorry. My computer has become too crap to play most of today's flash games decently and I can't post titles I'm unable to enjoy.

Anyway, back when I was doing this more regularly I used to always have a look at games in The Orisinal Collection, but I don't think I ever posted one 'cause the game concepts were always tired and never matched the visual presentation. This one is both brilliant and original, though, with a good mix of reflexes, perception and strategy.

Free Game of the Week - N

I can't remember if this has been posted before, but if it has, it's worth repeating. Oh man, this game is badass. It's a simple collect-the-coins-and-escape-the-level game. You control an elite ninja character, who must complete sets of 5 levels in "90 seconds". Each golden coin you get adds 2 seconds to the ninja's lifespan. There are 30 episodes of 5 levels each in the online game, and 100 episodes of 5 levels each in the free download. The download version also has a level editor.

I'm going to play this all the way home on the bus this winter, or at least until my laptop batteries run out.


Free Game of the Week - Grow Cube

Attempt to grow the cube as much as you can be selecting the different objects in the game. So far I've only managed to get 3 to max. Very addictive!

Join in the Ashes fun with Stick Cricket.

Just like the real thing - it's quite easy until that bastard Warne bowls.
