A Review of Happy Wheels When it comes to games, there's a fairly solid division between those that are good and those that are bad. Good games control well, have a great story, and are a great deal of fun. Bad games are, well, bad - there's something wrong with the game that makes it less than fun to play. Happy Wheels is free online game and however, is neither. It is a genuinely horrible game that is, somehow, addictive. It does everything wrong, but that somehow makes it just that much more fun to play. Happy Wheels puts you... Continue reading

Although the name may sound like a shooter game, it's more reminiscent of the paddles-and-bricks type games. Your little grizzled hero remains stationary while you aim at the criminals around the screen with your trusty bazooka. I'm a little confused as to why the game implies you're "capturing" the thieves, unless it means apprehension by scooping up their detonated innards. The explosions when the missile hits a target are vastly satisfying. Blood, bones, an eyeball or two and a fistful of coins go scattering as your hero gives a triumphant, "Yeah!" You can't actually purchase anything with the coins but... Continue reading

Zomblock is a simple and straightforward game. Take the basic approach of Minecraft, drop in a player with basic gear, and let them survive as long as the player can. It is surprisingly engaging and simple to maneuver. Let's go over what works and what doesn't. I started (and re-started) as a police officer. I didn't want to join the ranks of the dead too soon, and starting with a gun and med-kits seemed like the easiest path to do that. Starting the game, you simply choose from several classes, name your character, and you're on your own. I spawned... Continue reading

Dreamsfields is a fairly competent game with impressive art design and graphics that rival World of Warcraft and Dune in terms of vivid colors that bring into question a sort of Nazarene vibe towards a role-playing environment. The character designs are also well made and adjust well within the surroundings of their fantasy based land. The shop mechanisms and AI also work impressively and compliment the game's otherworldly traits such as the vibrant interactions with characters and mobile objects. Some traits such as the music, however, sound too somber in terms of atmosphere, and the requirement to set it on... Continue reading

Hat man vorher nichts mit Papa-Spielen gehört, fragt man sich: "Was ist das?!", was natürlich die Neugierde weckt. Also öffnet man es und kann sofort erahnen, dass es sich um einen Lieferservice handeln könnte, denn im Hintergrund kann man viele Leuchtreklamen von Restaurants sehen. Außerdem guckt einen ein blaubärtiger, mit Pizzaschachteln jonglierender Bäcker an. Wenn Papa's Wingeria fertig geladen hat, gelangt man auf den Startbildschirm mit einer kleinen Auswahl von weiteren Papa-Spielen. Nach einem kurzen Schmunzeln über die erheiternde Musik im Stil eines klassischen Gameboy-Spiels hat man also die Möglichkeit, das Spiel zu starten, indem man auf "Play" drückt oder...

This universe (2) is full of wondrous and tremendously different things. One thing that the average person has difficulty imaging is the vast difference in size between various items in the universe, from the smallest atom to the largest of galaxies. This disparity of scale is captured brilliantly in the “game” The Scale of the Universe. The controls of "The Scale of the Universe 2" are simple: you push a bar left and right, with left taking you to smaller and smaller scales while moving right gives you a bird’s eye view of increasingly larger objects. It even goes into... Continue reading

Simulation games are a great way to experience life events you would normally have no access to enjoying. This is true of flight simulators as well as business simulators. Simulation games vary in difficulty depending on their audience. Some business simulators are exactingly realistic while others are designed more for lighthearted fun. The online simulation "Theme Hotel" is one of the latter type of simulations. "Theme Hotel" starts by letting you play the game with or without sound. This option is much appreciated for gamers (like me) who listen to music on headphones while they play. Enter the name of... Continue reading

Demonrift TD takes its inspiration from the classic Tower Defense genre, in which players strategically purchase towers to place along a winding road. The goal is to keep monsters and other enemies from reaching the end of the road. The money used to purchase these towers is acquired by killing monsters. Typical strategies consist of placing towers near choke points, around "hairpin" turns, or in other locations where they can deal the most damage while enemies pass. Enemies come in waves; after the final wave, a particular map is finished, and the player progresses to the next map. While Demonrift... Continue reading
