Pretend to be a ghost chicken pretending to be a pirate in Chook & Sosig: Walk The Plank

You would think that, when a noodle-armed cat and a ghostly chicken sit down with some furry demon friends, they wouldn't need the convenient narrative framing of a D&D game to get themselves caught up in some pirate adventures. Still, that's the set-up in Chook & Sosig: Walk The Plank, a hand-drawn adventure game from Tookipalooki. Steer your bilge-rat fancying eyes to the trailer below,…

Dad And Daughter Release Super Chibi Knight

If you're the broody type, the story of a dad making a game with his daughter's character designs might warm the cockles of your heart, and you'd fall over your big lousy gloopy soft self as you stumble giggling to buy Super Chibi Knight [official site]. If you're a steely sort, someone who prefers their game news stories to revolve around teeth and the blunt-forceful…

Pride In My Flock: Blipzkrieg

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…

Kingbreaker: Crush The Castle 2

The iPhone version of Armor Games' original Crush The Castle has been a guilty pleasure of mine for a while. I was about to pick up the Android port now I've changed to an HTC Erotic or whatever it's called, but then helpful reader Norskov appraised pointed our eye-machines at to the arrival of a browser-based sequel. This highly-emprettified follow-up to the game I like…

Unfortgettable Elephant: This Is The Only Level

Michael Nørskov points me in the direction of this. It stars the elephant from Achievement Unlocked and is a metagame tinged piece of platform puzzling. It's called This Is The Only Level. And it is. But it's an awesome level and some of the puzzle solutions worked into it are plain brilliant. Others are funny. The best are both. Saying any more would spoil 'em.…

Explosion! Demolition City

A IM client blinks , somewhere on the internet: Dan: Wasting some time with Demolition City today. Jim: Weird coincidence, I watched a program about demolition just last night. Dan: Did it involve a Murder Death Kill? Jim: No. Hey, when you're finished with that, why not watch this video of bridge demolition set to opera. Dan: Damn, this game's mute button doesn't work. Did…

UPGRADE COMPLETE: Meta-sarcasm

A game to make you laugh at games, a game to make you feel a little bad about yourself, and a game in which you destroy hundreds of spaceships within mere moments. UPGRADE COMPLETE has much in common with meta-brother-in-arms Achievement Unlocked - it turns one of the peripheral systems of gaming into a game itself. In this case, it's a shmup built around chasing…

It’ll All Be Over By Lunchtime: Warfare 1917

University Comrade Hobbes and I used to have long debates about WW1 videogames, around their viability. Which with retrospect is an odd thing to do, as I'd already played History Lines 1914-1918 to death. He forwards me Warfare 1917, from ConArtists the maker of previous RPS-fave The Last Stand. And it's actually pretty good. I'd certainly recommend it more than walking slowly across no-man's land.…

Final Zombie XII

It's increasingly hard to tell whether or not the zombie joke's gone too far. On the one hand, the living dead are irritatingly ubiquitous throughout both gaming and web culture; on the other - zombies! A random poke at Armor Games' oft-bounteous site today turned up Sonny, a Flash-based Final Fantasy clone starring a well-spoken and terribly English zom. It isn't doing anything especially out…

Shift 2: Shiftier

Remember that time we wrote about Armor Games' Shift? That was good times. We still talked back then. Remember? Before we had that fight. Look, I'm not saying we should get back together, or even that you should forgive us for... well, you remember. But I just wanted to tell you about Shift 2. The short platform/puzzler has taken a nice step forward, adding in…
