7 toylike games to play during the winter holidays

Happy holidays! Time to see what’s in your stocking. Oh, it’s another copy of The Golf Handbook (Third Edition). And some toenail clippers. Great. No, honestly, that’s fine. It’s not like little Jemima over there is dashing about in her cool lion slippers, making you ache for an era of innocence and novelty that you can never revisit. And who cares if she’s clashing her…

Just build Sandcastles in Vectorpark’s latest

It's grim to have sunset fall while I'm still working, so I sacked off the afternoon to cheer myself building virtual sandcastles. I build sandcastles up out the sand, I admire my little castle village, then the tide comes in and washes them all away, and I start over. That's how it goes in Sandcastles, the latest from Windosill and Metamorphabet creator Vectorpark. It's a…

Amazing Bargain Cheap: get Metamorphabet now

Alphabetical toybox Metamorphabet [official site] was one of our favourite games of 2015 and yup, I've play just now to confirm that it's still pretty great. Made by the chap behind Windosill, it's similarly about poking, pulling, pushing, squishing, and otherwise fiddling with odd objects, in these case all letters of the alphabet. I know almost all of them now! But if you were overconfident,…

Bearded B’s Beak Blasts Bugs In Metamorphabet Demo

I don't know why John's Wot I Think of Metamorphabet [official site] talks so much about babies and other varieties of child. Sure, I suppose children might experience some pleasure when a cyclopoid letter B sprouts a hoary beard then a beak pokes through its upper B hole to scream a torrent of bugs, but those snotty idiots are endlessly entertained by you covering your…

Metamorphabet review

Vectorpark’s games have consistently been utterly beautiful and charming little toys, sumptuously animated and delightful to explore. Metamorphabet [official site] is yet another stunning success from the one-man team Patrick Smith, creating the most delightful alphabet-teaching game you could hope for. Here's wot I think:

Have You Played… Windosill?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Windosill is a magical diorama full of wonderful, eerie, and often sentient objects to pull, tug, ping, crank, stroke, yank, slide, tickle, and otherwise poke at. It's a short puzzle game where getting things wrong is just as pleasant as getting them right.…

(Almost) Free Toy: Windosill For A Cent

The gorgeous and utterly charming Windosill, whose gentle and sometimes dream-like interactions play out in what is still some of the best Flashcrafting out there, has just been released on iPad. And why, pray tell, would that be of interest to those of us who choose a mechanical pointing device over the dubious pleasures of poking at things with out fingers? Settle down and I…

Hazy Shade of Winter: Seasons

Okay, this delightful little interactive thing TheBlackBandit sent us isn't strictly speaking a game - but it is a delightful little interactive thing, and a lovely way to start the week with a higher note after the brutality of the last. In Seasons you control a thing on a unicycle, moving from screen to screen and seeing what happens. That's it. And it's quite lovely.…

Admire The View: Vectorpark’s Windosill

Vectorpark (Patrick Smith), creator of 2007's wonderful Feed The Head, offers a gorgeous new downloadable Flash game: Windosill. It's the gentle tale of a small toy car, quietly trundling its way through a series of screens, each requiring exploration and interaction to discover a small white cube that will unlock the next room. This begins in what might well the shelves of a child's bedroom,…
