Archives For Video game

Another Friday another episode, we are hitting a good stride and we appreciate our followers that always come back. This weeks show had a severe lack of Rog, as BallsRog was unable to join us with the usual shenanigans. However he responded to jokes with calling in from the “Skreets”. There were short jokes tossed at James, and covering the news of losing Monty Oum, animator for Rooster Teeth. Corey rocked out the Top5@5 with a BallsRog impersonation. Gather round and have a laugh, enjoy us while work is dragging or you are blowing it up in a video game!

Hello and welcome back to Free Games Friday, your source of all things free. It’s been quite awhile since I posted one of these, so I’m coming back with a vengeance with 9 brand spankin’ new games for you to enjoy.

 

yume-nikki-3d-2

So I was going to do a halloween themed week, but little known fact about me (or possibly a well known fact) is that I’m not very good with horror games. So that didn’t happen. I did decide to give you guys at least one horrorish game, which is this very well done 3D remake of a classic title: Yume Nikki. This game falls firmly into the “surreal” category, as you wander through the dreams of a young girl, collecting various effects and exploring the world within. While not a true horror game, the combination of the music and visuals serve very well at giving off an uneasy feeling, and you’ll keep going, wonder what awaits you around the next corner. This game can be downloaded by following the link here.

 

The Scorpion Box

This next game is a fun and somewhat random point and click game called The Scorpion Box. In this game, you have a turtle in a little box, and inside the box is a scorpion. Your goal is to retrieve the turtle and find a way to dispose of the scorpion without getting killed. With multiple endings and solutions, this one is sure to keep you guessing. You can play this game here.

 

flying-kick

Next up is a puzzle game known as Flying Kick. The goal of this game is to make it to the door at the end of every level. Your only method of travel is by… well, flying kicks. You have to use your limited movement options to make your way to the door, usually by stacking items and avoiding traps. This game can be played here.

 

sharecart1000

Finally, The next set of games are kind of interesting. These games all utilize the same save file, under the program known as SHARECART1000, a game designing program that allows you to make some fun and fairly interesting games. I’ve only tried a couple of the games from these so far, but what I have played is really fun, and they are certain to add more games as time goes by. Do be warned though, due to all games using the same save file, you are require to have all your games in the same place. So just remember that when you extract the games, to put them all in the same folder. You can see all of the games that are currently out here, and they are sure to add more as the days go by.

 

 

That’s all there is for this week, hope you come back another time for some more free games.

Free Games Friday

Duckie —  18/10/2013 — 2 Comments

Welcome to Free Games Friday, your source for free games. I missed last week and I have no reason or excuse for it. However, to make up for this, I will be giving you four games to play, two of them are download only, and two of them you can play right on your browser.

 

The first game is a cute little puzzle game that’s part Bomberman, part block puzzle. In Explod (which I couldn’t find or make a decent image of, sorry), your goal is to get to the exit, signified by the big black door. However, there are walls in your way that prevent you from just walking straight to them. Thankfully, you have some bombs around you, which are more than enough to take care of those pesky walls. Lighting a bomb will start a brief visual countdown, which only moves when you do. The bomb will explode once the fuse reaches the bomb, destroying any walls it’s touching, or lighting another bomb if it gets caught in it’s explosion. You have to navigate your way through the levels, getting to the entrance while avoiding the bombs yourself, or else you’ll be killed. You can find this game here.

barons-gate-icon-1

Game number two is called Baron’s Gate. This one is a sidescrolling Shooter/RPG/Platformer type of deal, where you play as a soldier with a bow. As you progress through the levels, you will find new equipment to use, which have a variety of abilities and the like, from poison arrows to ice arrows. At the end of many of the levels you will fight a boss, which provide a greater challenge and test your skills and equipment up to this point. Be warned though, this game is tough. If you’re looking for a challenge, then you can find this game to play here.

metal-shinobi-assassin-4

Third up today is a Japanese title, known as Metal Shinobi Assassin. In this Contra/Metal Slug clone, you play as a… well, metal shinobi assassin. Armed with weaponry way advanced for the era, you plow your way through various enemies, dodging bullets and killing to your hearts content. Much like it’s inspirations, this game is fairly unforgiving, but it’s all good fun. This game can be downloaded here (just click the big blue link).

title1

And finally, my personal favourite game from this week’s list of game, Null Divide Plus. In this top down shooter, you play as a spaceship pilot who is running low on supplies, and comes across a seemingly abandoned space station, which you scout out for fuel and other supplies. You are given a free range of motion within each level, where you have to find various upgrades as well as 3 colour coordinated keys, which allow you to access other areas of the level, and you can only face the boss if you have all three. With fun puzzles and a challenging difficulty curve, this game is sure to keep you entertained. You can download the game here.

 

And that’s all folks, see you next time for more Free Games Friday.

It’s time for Free Games Friday, ignoring that this is being posted very early Saturday morning. Today I have three (!) games for your enjoyment.

enough_plumbers

I’m kind of cheating on this first game, because it’s actually a two for one. Enough Plumbers is a puzzle platformer that pays homage to everyone’s favourite princess saving plumber. In this game however, any time you touch a coin you spawn a new plumber, until eventually the screen is filled with them. Using these various bodies, you have to navigate the various challenges, reaching the flag. It’s extremely fun and a lot harder than it sounds! You can find the first game here, and the recently released sequel, Enough Plumbers 2, is right here.

Speaking of princesses….

sorrymariobros

Sorry Mario Bros. takes the concept and flips it on it’s head, giving the damsel in distress the ability to jump, and thus allowing herself to rescue herself. Recreating three of the original Super Mario Bros. levels, this time you play them in reverse. While the game isn’t perfect (it was created over the course of two weeks), it’s a fun experiment in taking old games and flipping them on their head, which has become almost a genre in itself. This particular game can be found here.

Finally, how’s your math skill?

thehighroad

This final game doesn’t really relate to the other games, but it’s just too good for me to not post as soon as I possibly can. In this game, named The High Road, you play as a janitor. The place where you work (I haven’t beaten the game yet so I don’t know very much), which appears to be some form of insurance agency, has been devastated on the inside. You travel through the building, trying to determine what happened (while cleaning up some of the mess along the way). Featuring a cast of fairly interesting characters, and a math based (yes, you read that right) combat system, this is an extremely interesting and fresh take on the RPG genre. If you’re a fan of RPG games, then you should enjoy this one, even with it’s strange and unusual combat system. You can download the game here.

That’s all for this week folks, tune in next week, where I’ll hopefully be on time.

beck_mighty_no_9

Former Capcom Exec. and creator of Megaman Keiji Inafune has launched a kickstarter campaign for his new game, being hailed as the true successor to his beloved franchise, titled Mighty No. 9. It will feature a new protagonist named Beck, and from initial screenshots the game looks to be very much in line with the spirit of Megaman games from the past.

 

You can see the trailer and of course, donate if you wish, at the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter page.
