Gobtron: Fun (And Gross) Defense Game

From the creators of Burrito Bison, the game company Juicy Beast has another fun game that I discovered over the weekend. Gobtron is also fantastically addictive (and more than a little gross, in its premise). You play as a very large creature named Gobtron. Nearby villagers are afraid of you (and for good reason), so it’s a literal David vs….

Burrito Bison: Silly And Addictive Flash Game

Burrito Bison is a ridiculously, ridiculously addictive Flash game in the “Launch” genre. The premise is pretty basic: you’re a luchador with a bison mask who, while innocently shopping for groceries, gets mysteriously sucked into Candyland to serve as a captive gladiator for an entire civilization of gummy bears. Your goal is to escape. To play, you launch yourself out…

Grow Cannon: New Game From Eyezmaze

Grow Cannon is the latest game from Eyezmaze. I’m a big fan of the guy’s work, and his games have entertainment for countless hours (no kidding). The games in the “Grow” series all revolve around figuring out the right combinations and sequences. Some games have a very linear storyline (like Grow RPG), while others are a little less straight-forward (like…

Flight: Addictive Flash Game About a Paper Airplane

Flight is an amazingly addictive Flash game, in the launch genre. Basically, you have a paper airplane you try to keep up in the air (with powerups you purchase, along the way). Did I say addictive? I meant ridiculously addictive. I started, and didn’t stop playing for a solid 30+ minutes. I’m not quite at the end yet, but after…

GROW Valley: New Game From Eyezmaze

GROW Valley is the latest installment of the GROW series, made by the quirky and wonderful eyezmaze. For those unfamiliar with the series, it’s a deceptively easy game in terms of control… but gets tricky, in terms of trying to figure out the right “solution.” Users are presented with a variety of buttons (seven in GROW Valley). Depending on the…

Solipskier: Ski Yourself to Death

Solipskier, by Mikengreg Games, is a fast-paced ski game where you control the snow. It takes a little getting used to at first, but the trick is to try to have long, gradual downhills and small, quick uphills. Fast and frenetic like Canabalt, the trick is to get enough speed to kick your skier up high… and get points for…

Isora & Muku: Latest Game From Eyezmaze

Isora & Muku is the latest from game designer Eyezmaze. There are no instructions, but it’s pretty clear what the goal of the game is. Here’s my one tip: keep an eye out for tiny rocks on the bottom right. I’ve long been a huge fan of his Grow series of games, and can’t say enough good things. If you’ve…

Crush the Castle 2: More Fun With the Trebuchet

For folks who enjoyed the original, check out Crush the Castle 2, the sequel to the most popular trebuchet destruction game online. The graphics have gotten better, and the gameplay is as fun as ever. I haven’t gotten too far with this yet, but you’ll definitely lose a bit of time here.

Doodle God

I lost a bit of time this morning, playing Doodle God. It’s neat at first, but man – 115 elements is an awful lot. I guess it depends on your personality here – either this game is super tedious, or it’s obsessively rewarding. [via MetaFilter]

There are several links to prior games (below), and if you haven’t played any of the Grow series of games yet… you’re in for a treat. They’re a blast. Transform is the latest game from Eyezmaze, where you’re an antelope…

Historical Games from Preloaded: 1066 and Trafalgar Origins

I came across two pretty slick games last night, from Preloaded. I *think* that I remember this group from way back in the early Flash days, but maybe I’m confusing their name with someone else. The group was commissioned by Channel 4 to create a series of games – and they’re pretty spectacular. //Edit: Ah! They also made Spooks, which…

Atomic Puzzle: Soothing, Relaxing Puzzle Game

Atomic Puzzle is a quiet, relaxing game to play. Your goal is to remove all the balls or molecules from the screen. Clicking on a ball that has two similar colors attached to it allows you to “collide” the two, and removes them from play. As can be expected, newer controls appear as the levels get more complex. I’m still…
