A list 366 games long and nobody has mentioned raiden yet?

I don't think I need to explain that one.

A game I greatly like but is much more obscure is top figures.

It's a puzzle game that lets you be quite creative in your solutions. You often can't be sure that it isn't possible to find a higher scoring solution.

Well, no, I don't suppose you need to, but I have no idea what the hell it is based on a name. So, you play Thor? Zeus? A Thunderhawk?

I thought everyone had already played it. "Raiden X" gets 436 000 hits on google. Going through the list posted, the first game to get more than that is bloons (excluding things like bells which aren't even on the first page of the results). If that pattern continues uniformly through the list, then Raiden is more famous than all but 13 games on the list.

Anyway, it is an excellent vertical scrolling shooter that was released as one of those single game arcade thingies. I'm not sure whether the flash game or the machine was the spinoff.

To be honest, I'd rather you go ahead and quickly describe Warcraft's gamestyle than just assume everyone knows what you're talking about. Mostly for Murray, as he doesn't get out much.

Pet peeve:
Warcraft =/= WoW

I don't play any of the Warcraft series, but this just annoys me. It's like saying Fallout and meaning Fallout 3, or like saying Beethoven and meaning his ninth symphony.

This is an awesome topic but any chance we could get more details on the giant list of game sin the first post? I don't want to just aimlessly click on games that are hit or miss :(.

this thread is called "redux" for a reason, the original should still be out there somewhere, that thread is where you will find the description of most of these games, go look for it.

Each entry should have included a link to the post that first mentioned the game. Now, it's a little too late to do that though, I guess.

Hey, if you want to do that, be my guest. The main reason there's even a giant list is because someone was awesome enough to basically make one of the first 19 pages of a 20something page thread.

So, I just quote the original post, add a link to the forum post with the description next to each entry, then send the result to you. Correct? I might just do that, if I find the time.

More or less, yeah. Hell, do it in the thread if you want. It's getting time I merge out the first page and a half or so anyway.

Every once in a while, I come across a game that really gets me. Like this one.
A platformer, with a time travel aspect to it, and a (for me) moving story.

And another platformer, but this time there is no goal. Roam free, and let yourself become enchanted by the simple beauty of it all.

This was great, thanks. Superb soundtrack as well, I've been listening to it on a loop.
Spoiler:
Though, it was a bit short and I think the ending could have been a lot more subtle. Also, the level where you have to get several characters across the green bridge made my brain break.

Spoiler:
I'm guessing you did it the hard way then. I just had my first like 6 guys make a tall stack standing on each other and all jumping for a bit. Then my last "real" guy stood under the pile and waited for them to stop jumping then walked them over.

I liked the story and feel of the game but Chronotron had better game play. I really liked how each level was a metaphor for what he was saying though.

Oh, wow, I feel like an idiot now.
Spoiler:
For some reason I was making my stack on the actual green bit, which meant that each new guy had to be the bottom one in the stack. I think I got pre-conditioned by the level where you have to do a similar thing with two guys.

Mentioned in passing on the "difficulty 11" thread Spelunky has eaten up a lot of my free time in the past week. It's a download but no install and well worth it. You explore a procedurally generated cave filled with danger, mystery and treasure.

I made a bridge. I used 6 or so ethereal guys, each standing on the previous fellows forehead. After that, I just climbed them and jumped to the other side 8)

Usually I can't finish platformers-- missing a jump and then having to go through half the level just to miss again drives me batty. Also, usually flash games won't play on my mediocre old laptop. I am seriously impressed. Thanks!

(I missed half the 'plot' due to being too busy concentrating on getting the damn jumps, though. But that's what the comments section is for. ;D)

Chain of fire.
You click someone, give him a direction to run, and he is set on fire.
You can click a tree to set it on fire.
If a person goes into water, he burns out, but he dies. If a tree is in water, it still burns.
If a burning person/tree touches another burning person/tree, they catch on fire.
The goal is to burn everything.

It's a pretty funny game if you have a morbid sense of humor like me.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. It is done. I'm pretty sure I could have invested those 10 hours it took me to do something more productive but anyway. I added a link next to each entry that sends you to a post that has more information about that game. I also found some duplicates and removed them and fixed a few names so people won't submit the same games again and again. There was a handful of entries about which I couldn't find any reference on the forum at all. Not sure what went wrong. Finally, I did not add any new games mentioned in December. So someone please add them, they're not too many. I'll post again for the list in a minute...

EDIT: Houston, I think we have a problem.

Please take a look at this list before posting that cool game you found. At this point, there's a good chance it's already been posted. But maybe not - it's a gabafrabulously huge interroweb out there.

And this one is not going to be in alphabetical order. Though it's not been a problem in a while, maybe this will continue to help.

GODDAMN OFFROAD RAPTOR SAFARI NOW STOP POSTING IT

Everything else should be in alphabetical order. The asterisks link to posts with some sort of description and/or impressions for each game.

If you want to contribute, Flash Games or Java Games are the preference. If it's a downloadable .exe, try not to link to anything over, say, 20 megs. The smaller the better. And don't bother linking any .exe that are installers. We don't want to install something on our system, we want something that can be played right after downloading. But again - Flash or Java is really what we're going for here because it's platform independent... I'm just letting some .exe files in because they're Deathworm or something similar.

Christmas Escape 3. Neutral have made another of their Christmas-themed room escape games for this year. A very pleasant way to spend half an hour.

@Naurgul: nice work!

I'm surprised You Have to Burn the Rope hasn't been suggested yet. It has one of the biggest cult followings I know of.

It's in the list, under "You Must Ignite the Length of Twisted Fibers With Little Compressive Strength".

Heh. I fixed a lot of entries to include the proper names of games so that the list is more searchable. But somehow I thought I could get away with leaving this one entry as it was. Hmm...
(gonna fix this now)

No, that's my bad. I left my nerd2english decoder off when on this thread. But thanks anyway.

I made this other game called Entropy for a contest. You guys can check it out and tell me what you think.

If you want to go the next step and be super awesome, rate it so I can be a finalist!

This one is Ching Chong Beautiful. It's a parody (sort of) of Japanese game shows. In this it consists of a man named Ching who has his brother stolen, and is then forced to run through a ridiculous set of increasingly difficult obstacle courses to get him back. There's some fairly funny commentary, but if you're easily offended by stereotypes (even when it's just a joke) then don't play it.

At first I hated it because of the controls, but I gradually warmed up to it and then eventually made it my mission to beat the game.

The funny thing is that the words are Chinese.

Bubble Tanks Tower Defense

Has anybody played? Any tips or tricks, other than the usual TD ones? The megatower feature is pretty cool. (Still haven't played with mega-mega towers.)

My favorite megatower is 1 mac gun + 2 splash + 1 damage amp

While the mega-mega towers seem cool in concept, they make any level you can build one on rather boring. Fortunately the game completely makes up for that with Cut Through.

XKCD: The videogame.. (Merg'd!)

Postby helo darqness » Mon Jan 04, 2010 6:04 pm UTC

Well..almost.

XKCD, as you know, can be very sweet and sentimental. And in the vein of stick figure art, there are a couple games built by a very creative user named SilverStitch. I rarely rarely go to Newgrounds, but I was thrilled to have discovered this, because it is a quality game.

Very simple, touching, and reminds me of the more somber XKCD moments.

http://silverstitch.newgrounds.com/flash/

Start with this one:

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/483057

The games are hosted on other sites too, but he apparently has them all here....but click around...its pretty linear with alot of environment interaction; click around on shit

It just seems to complete the stick-figure trifecta, with Don Hertzfeldt being for video.

I knew immediately you were referring to the "Colour my..." series. Certainly they're great, they've regularly won the daily awards and while XKCD is awesome, I wouldn't say they're of the same vein/vain (what is that expression anyway?). I admit there have been tender moments in XKCD similar to that of the "colour my..." series but I'd say XKCD mixes it up a little whereas the Colour series is more about the same theme implemented in different settings. The stickperson/minimalist style is relatively similar I guess (though the anatomies are different) and it has the same out-there, cutesy char, XKCD sometimes has but I find the two a little incomparable. Perhaps you should've put this in the flash games thread, but yeah, they are cool games :)
