A rare period of mid-morning downtime finds me poking about in the netherworld of browser gaming, and – as usual – I’ve quickly bumped into something that has left me vaguely mesmerised. It’s called Blipzkrieg, and it’s a a sort of maze/puzzle/tactics game. In it you drag around a blob (optimistically called a “battlesuit”) and pick up other blobs which act as a buzzing flock of weapons. These can be used to fight enemies, or to take out forcefield locks and so forth. Usually there are more enemies than you can actually deal with, so running away isn’t simply an option. Tense and interesting little game, I would say.
