Co-Op Point And Click: Cursors

I eventually stopped playing Cursors some fifteen screens in when, as shown in the image above, I found myself trapped in a small cubbyhole in the top left of the screen. It's a co-operative browser game where you trace your mouse cursor around mazes, but where advancing through each screen doesn't merely mean working together. It means some people getting left behind.

Choose Your Own Misadventure: Relive Your Life

I just caused the end of the world. Sorry about that. Although I also died when being driven off a cliff by two girls vying for my affections. And there was the time I spent my life in subjugation to an albino bear. Three of 28 possible endings to Matt Ackerman's Relive Your Life, a flash game that lets you make small decisions that have…

Not Ruble Trouble? Rubble Trouble Moscow

I do like destroying things. Buildings, hope, people's lives. So I'm immediately drawn to Nitrome's Rubble Trouble Moscow. You may remember the original Rubble Trouble in Feb last year, and apparently there was another one between then and now. This one is Russian themed, in so much as the characters are wearing hats, and the music is a bit Russian. The actual game is still…

On The Blob: Slime Laboratory

Your Monday lunchtime entertainment comes in the form of Slime Laboratory by Neutronized. It's a web game in which you play a blob of slime. Wot jumps. It's a very decent platform game, which awakens parts of my brain asleep since 1989. Lots of fun ideas, demands for careful jumping, and importantly, reversed gravity. The only issue I've been having is the frustration of the…

The Ministry Of A Silly Minigame

A chunk of Monty Python's Ministry Of Silly Games is now available to play, even if you're not on the beta. It's essentially promotion for the game to be released next year, letting people play some of the minigames that will feature as standalone web content. The first of these that we've spotted is Camelot Smashalot. To say that it owes something to Crush The…

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back In The Water, On A Boat, In An Aeroplane, Fly Your Horses, Or Parachute Somewhere: Sydney Shark

Look, I want you to try to stay as calm as possible, but here it is: there's a sequel to Miami Shark. It's out now. It's called Sydney Shark. It's like Miami Shark - the fantastic shark attack frenzy that won my heart (after eating it, mid-air) last year - BUT LIKE THREE TIMES AS GOOD.

Poke Me: Facebook Robot Unicorn Attack

I've talked about my love for Robot Unicorn Attack before. That said, that short paragraph isn't nearly enough. Frankly, this Canabalt-elaboration is one of my favourite games of the year. I'm terrible at it though, thus going onto the adult swim leaderboards is a bit of a waste of time. Now, however, it's on Facebook, meaning you can challenge your friends and create a more…

New Grave: Graveyard Graveyard Revolution

It's Monday morning. VVVVVV's Terry Cavanagh has been busy, probably making another forty micro-games of the weekend. Here's one of the latest which mashes together Dance Dance Revolution with - unless I'm mistaken - Tale of Tales' The Graveyard , with inevitable consequences. You can play Graveyard Graveyard Revolution here.

Manchester United 2: Blocks With Letters On 3

We ignored the first Blocks with Letters on. We ignored the second Blocks with Letters on. We tried ignoring the third, but we just couldn't manage it. Blocks With Letters On 3 continues Martin Sears' anagram block game where you have to both i) identify the word you have to spell ii) knowing the word, work out how you can manoeuvre the blocks to spell…

Die Bard: Haiku Hero

I'm sure that everyone will agree, what we were hoping the man behind the blistering Boss Rush would do next would be a game about making haikus. Our hopes are answered. Haiku Hero basically challenges you to make haikus (Three-line poems in a 5, 7, 5 sylables structure - English Teacher Ed) against a time limit. To make it trickier, as you turn up the…

Hang_ng T_ugh: Langman

A Friday afternoon distraction here. Langman is really just a conceptually pure thing. It's a unity-powered combination between the word-game hangman and a platformer, so you have to jump between the letters to select them. Fall to your death, and you lose a guess. Guess wrong and you lose a guess. Guess right, and you may add another guess. Battling against my (perhaps predictable) intrinsic…

It’s The Ba-Boom-Booze Talking: Ka-Bloom

Friend of RPS Siri mentioned Ka-bloom to me, which reminded me I previously wanted to check it out. And it is a nifty, beautifully presented puzzle-game with the standard flashgame Role-playing game elements. In short, create chains of crystals and feed them to your flower-thingy. All those are technical terms. Made by Strongman games who, if memory serves, were the pair who cornered me at…

Survival Fitness: Treadmillasaurus Rex

It's the start of the week. Time to warm up your gaming muscles with - perhaps appropriately - a game set in a gym. A GYM OF DEATH. Papa Voodoo pointed us at Treadmillasaurus Rex, where you play the titular dino on a treadmill, dodging spikes rolling towards you. Every few seconds the wheel of awesome spins choosing a complication, from relevant things like speeding…

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.…

Up The Morning: Up Down Ready

How do I like to start the day? With a spectacular orgy with a lustful Martian pantheon. However, I'm prepared to settle with a quick flashgame. Today's is Up Down Ready from the charmingly named Sword Lady & The Viking which just won Best Design In A Game at the recent Freeplay indie festival in Melbourne. Well done them. Basically, it's a string of mini-games…

Push It Real Good-er: One Button Arthur

You remember One Button Bob? Lambchops brings One Button Arthur - a sequel - to my attention, which is a little snazzier but works an identical "one button to solve whatever problem you're facing" axis. You can play it here. Lambchops did it in what he describes as a "pathetic" 646. I did it in an even more pathetic 668. How pathetic can you be?…

Pretend That We’re Dead: e7

Time for a relaxing web-game? Well, e7 is partially it and partially not. As in, it's more than just the sweeping over the alien environment in a stylish-reduced-palette style. Just difficult enough to be worth playing, I quite dig this. Woosh! Woosh across the landscape! Also, floor-deformation and bouncing. Thanks to Bakka for pointing at me. Play it here.
