Arty, interesting, easy game. Highly recommended if you have 15 minutes to burn.
Just FYI, the guy isn't avatar isn't me. But he seems pretty cool.

Wow, that was a hard one :shock:
Solved it in the end though.

Has anyone played Fish Tycoon? It is strangely soothing to feed fish. Also you don't have to clean the tank manyally.

Some other good room-escape games can be found here. Lights and Vision are particularly good.

I think having a little more time to choose the options would benefit that. I did enjoy it, though.

I think some of the point of the options is that you can only see the first word or two and have to make your choice based on that, though...

Yeah, I'm talking about accidentally choosing the same option that causes a loop three times in a row.

Maybe I just suck.

I'm impressed. Its very surreal.

But...the controls could be a bit more picky. Its difficult to get the option I'm trying to select, although that could just be that I'm working with a somewhat-shitty touchpad.

I think Kongregate and Newgrounds host versions of most of the browser games on the net. Also, there's a large list of flash games at http://www.freeonlinegameslist.com/, and Jay Is Games has more browser game reviews then any other site I can find (not counting comments on Kongregate and Newgrounds).

A couple of my favorites are: Coconut Run, in which you design a cart to carry coconuts across a difficult terrain in the shortest amount of time possible (although they're apparently having server trouble at the moment), and William and Sly, which is a very atmospheric platformer in which you play a fox.

edit: The Coconut Run cart designer is surprisingly versatile

Yes, and the idea of this thread is for people who spend time there to point out the gems so we don't have to spend time wading through the massive piles of complete shit.

Time Fuck seems to be the indie flash game sensation of the week. It's one of those you're-a-labrat-solve-the-puzzles-also-here's-some-weird-story games (spiritual children to Portal). I personally got frustrated after a while and gave up but maybe other people here will be more patient/intelligent and will be able to finish it.

I'm grinding to level 13 and I'm in grasslands 2, to everyone else who's further ahead than me, am I doing alright or do I need more power?

Now for some games;
How to Raise A Dragon - I'm surprised it's not already on the list.
Lastman - Hardest game I've ever played.


EDIT: One of my games was already on the list, I just didn't look for it in the right part.

Lastman is hard! (At first I didn't even know I could run, lol. I made it up until the first green platform, I could *almost* reach it)

Follow through! It's remains very fun, it just requires a bit of perseverance. Also, the user made content is pretty entertaining.

A parkour game that only requires you to press one button: Canabalt. If any of you manage to get a hold of the music for this game pm me, but yeah, it's very fun and addictive for a game with just one button. Enjoy.

Edit: Here's a tip: try hitting every other object or so to maintain your speed, or just use your better judgement to slow yourself down when you think you're going too fast, there is no penalty other than a reduction in speed for hitting an object.

I like it. The cards are pretty well balanced and the AI plays well mostly. I like the variety of the campaign missions. But single duels against the archmage are fun too.

Seriously though, "Insanian berserker"? That is the worst name ever.

Strategy talk:
Spoiler:
It seems to cast nature ritual only on his leftmost guy instead of using it strategically. Insanian berzerkers seem a little too strong, if you don't have a decent healing card your going to get zerged. On the flip side elven healer seems too strong also for only 1.


The only achievement I can't get it defeating that one chick in less then 8 turns. I've been able to kill her on the 8th tern like 5 times but that doesn't count.
