I know it's a little late but this festive holiday card
is a very pleasing flash thingumy to play with. Move your mouse around and see what happens, pull the lever to really mix it up.
Girl meets oversize killer robot, girl falls in love with oversize killer robot, girl brutally destroys oversize killer robot. Some might see Hot Seat Gunner
as a modern fairytale, others might see it as a complicated application of Newtonian physics, and yet others might see it as game with a girl with a gun
Is it a badger
, is it a banana
, is it the footy
, no it's santa
(a bit late because I wasn't on-line much just before Christmas - oops). Dancing badgers (however they are dressed) are the pinnacle of internet content.
Old skool text based adventuring with a snazzy new flash interface make The Hitchhiker's Adventure Game
a pleasure to play for a Hitchhiker's
fan like myself. Start by switching on the light and move on from there. Don't forget your towel.
Do those cool Chinese characters on your new tattoo tell the world what a mean son of a gun you are, or that you secretly like to wear woman's underclothing? Hanzi Smatter
is dedicated to the misuse of Chinese characters (Hanzi or Kanji) in Western culture and will soon tell you what foolish message you are actually carrying around on your bod.
Explore the warped flash world of the Gorillaz
to find all the music and games. Features the artwork of one of my all time favourite graphic artists, Jamie Hewlett
, the original artist that made tank girl
the visual feast that it was.
If you're a slacker
even getting washed, eating and leaving the house can form the basis of a point'n'click
adventure. I know it does for me [at gamegarage
I love Tom And Jerry
cartoons and What's The Catch?
really captures the spirit of the original series as you either take control of Tom to catch the falling plates, or make Jerry jump the obstacles as he runs away from Tom. Nice. Three levels of difficulty but nothing too taxing.
The music of Billy Harvey
wrapped up in some awsome flash animated navigation. I must admit I hadn't heard of him but I love this site
Way back at the begining of the year I was moaning
about how the BBC
had made their hyper-useful weather pages
that they were almost unbearable to visit. Well sometime back in September I re-bookmarked the site to remind myself that they'd undergone another redesign and were now beautiful once again and had gone back to the pure and simple task of telling us how rainy, windy and cold it would be in this country. Did they listen to my sound advice? The 9 month gap suggests not, but it's nice to see this 'must visit' web destination is easy on the eye once again. Now if only they could make it a little warmer...
Well, what do you know? I'm just doing my end of year links clear out
by working alphabetically through my Opera
bookmarks folder (that's how they arrange themsleves) and this
is the third point'n'click game
link in a row. You guys really do send a lot of stuff into me, dont you? Thanks!
Anyway, despite the childish graphics and lack of sound (my pet peeve in a game), you'll find that helping Astro Suzie save the earth from alien invasion, still involves some tricky puzzles. Requests for help in the comments as usual.
