Impressions: Wonderputt

Why are crazy golf courses mostly coastal entities?

Lots of people are talking about Wonderputt, even though it’s a Flash crazy golf game…wait, come back! It’s a Flash crazy golf game with alien abductions and rocket ships! I can’t help but notice that people are still walking away, pretending to have urgent appointments elsewhere, perhaps with more complex and worthy games. Well, forget those games for a minute. I made Wonderputt sound zany, didn’t I, with all that clamouring about alien abductions? It’s not zany, I promise you. Although the voiceover in the trailer below also makes it sound like it might be wacky, which is another thing it’s not.

Awww! Sissy’s Magical Ponycorn Adventure

None of us reading could do better.

Oh my goodness, the cute-o-meter has just started hissing heart-shaped clouds of steam and leaking glitter. Heroic dad Ryan Creighton (of Flash developer Untold Entertainment) took his five-year-old daughter Cassie to this year’s TOJam, and together they created the adventure game, Sissy’s Magical Ponycorn Adventure. Which has turned out to be the most popular game of the show, to the point where the poor TOJam website has been taken over by it.

Multitasking: Morplee

This is all games.

Stop what you’re doing and play this: Morplee.

It’s a collection of three-second minigames, of which you must complete as many as you can in 60 seconds, at the same time as preventing aliens from reaching the ground. Get a high score, post it below, watch as others mock you because theirs was higher. Go. (Cheers to RevStu for the spot.)

Handmade Adventure: The Dream Machine

There's... something in my eye.

It turns out there’s a direct channel to my heart. It’s the words, “a Point & Click adventure game made out of clay and cardboard.”

Gosh.

The Dream Machine is looking utterly beautiful. It’s a hand-made game by Cockroach Inc., built in three dimensions, and then photographed. Below are screenshots and a trailer, which you absolutely must see.

For They Are Many: Pixel Legions

Take your graphics and shove 'em.

At a certain point today I’m going to have to accept that I have other work to do than play Pixel Legions. It’s a fantastic game by Pixelante, an arcade strategy in which you must control your armies of pixels in small battles against those of other colours. Wow, it suddenly seems so racist now I type it out. Hey, Pixelante, what have you got against the Magenta people? What did the Cyans ever do to you?

A Good Combination: Doodle God

What does this have to do with doodling?

Want to know why I haven’t gone to bed? It’s because of DeliriumWartner, and his recommending Doodle God. Which has nothing to do with doodling. It does instead have an awful lot to do with being godly. You’re given just four elements, earth, wind, fire and water, and by combining them the aim is to create 115. Which involves an awful lot of combining.

Orton Hears A Howl: Orton And The Princess

It's about to mock me for something.

TheBlackBandit suggested we look at Flash game Orton And The Princess with the accompanying comment, “Your choice whether or not to post it.” It turns out it’s worth posting, and, well, even if it weren’t I figured maybe he’s being passive aggressive and if I don’t he’ll hurt me. It’s a strange little game – very simple platform mechanic, except… except the game mocks you.
