Butterfly Effect - Chronotron

launch game

Its been a long time since my last post, mostly due to lack of good flash games and being unable to take my red swollen fingers off my XBox gamepad. I never thought I would return back to flash games after getting used to all those smooth, flashy 3D games with mind blowing graphics, AI and physics. But in the end despite everything the most crucial part of any game is the gameplay. I came across this amazing game, Chronotron and I left whatever I was playing on my XBox till I completed this one. Chronotron (chrono=time, tron=robot) is a lonely robot. The only company he has is himself. He can travel back in time and chit chat with his old self or may be even complete the level he could not have completed alone. An amazing concept, great food for your mind. The levels become increasingly difficult as you move forward.

WarBears - Funny Puzzle Game

launch game

If you loved playing Hapland you'll definitely going to enjoy this one. The best category this game fits in is Puzzle game, but I feel Hapland has started an altogether new genre of games and this fits perfectly into it. WarBears (tagline: We Bring War to the Enemies of the Peace) is a fun game. It really is funny. In fact at times you don't regret making mistakes as you enjoy seeing the character's reactions. There's an emergency as the BedTime bank is being looted. Now its upto Agent Lucas, Kla, Steve and Ryoh to save the hostages and the money. The thugs are kind enough to wait for you till you reach the spot doing nothing at all. The script for the game is funny and silly at times but you never get bored of the game. Enjoy!!

I am in the process of writing the walkthrough of this game.. 'll update soon.

Warbears Walkthrough: coming soon!!!!

Dice Wars - Strategy Game

launch game

I am still surprised how I missed on this one for so long. Dice Wars is an amazing strategy game quite similar to the board game 'Risk' if you are familiar with it. Kudos to GameDesign and Taro Ito for this one. If you are a strategy game fan, be ready to sacrifice countless hours of your life on this one. I'll be going in a little depth about how to play this game as I couldn't find any details on the author's web site.

Tip: Try playing initially in 2 player mode. The default is 7. Once you get a hang of it, increase the number of opponents.

In two player mode your areas and dice will be purple in color and your opponents will be green. The one who captures the entire area is the winner. When its your turn first click on your area which is going to attack and an adjacent opponent area which is going to be attacked. Who wins? Say your area has 5 dice and the opponents has a less number of dice say 4 then your odds of winning are better. Luck factor also comes into picture. The dice will thrown and the sum will be calculated for you and the opponent, whoever scores better is the winner and the winner gets to capture the opponents area. The area will now become purple and 4 dice (5-1) will move to the new area leaving one behind to safegaurd your already captured area. You can play any number of times before you end your turn by clicking on the 'end turn' button. (And so can your opponent :P)

It will take just a little while to figure out strategies like hiding the weaker areas (having less number of dice) behind stronger ones, Not capturing some of the weaker areas of the opponent if you become vulnerable after that, Corners being safer bets and a lot more you'll figure out yourself.

Submachine 5 : The Root - Another Point and Click Game

launch game

Submachine 5 is a fabulous point and click game but beware it gets pretty challenging at points. Hey wait don't start yet if you haven't played the earlier Submachine parts. You have hours or perhaps days to go before you play this one. Start from the first part in order and see the mystery unfold. There is a connection. Here are the links to the Submachne prequels (is that a word?):

1. Submachine
2. Submachine Zero : Ancient Adventure
3. Submachine 2 : The Lighthouse
4. Submachine 3 : The Loop
5. Submachine 4 : The Lab

One thing that drives me off point and click games is that sometimes its more about luck and patience than logic. You have to see every pixel on the screen if it is clickable or not. Though initial parts are pretty easy to solve, The Root is the most challenging one. I wont write more as I am pretty sure no one is reading..

BTW if you are looking for a walkthrough you'll find it on the site itself, so I wont go through all the pains of writing it myself...

game source: I could'nt find the author's site. I got these links from arcadetown. I don't know how does that matter to you.

War of Faiths - Faith Fighter

launch game

Wow cool animation, awesome music, smooth controls and great gameplay.. The only thing that some people may find objectionable is the depiction of their faiths (I don't.. I have lost all faith in everyone) which if the case is simply don't play it. Faith Fighter is a fighting game, only the characters are gods of different faiths. Each God has its combo moves.. You can play it against computer or in 2-player mode.. and after you have declared the supremacy of your faith against others.. comes the boss.. who it is? you have to find it out yourself. Well, some people might find this game a li'l objectionable but I think its better than fighting in flesh and blood. Enjoy

"Faith Fighter is the ultimate fighting game for these dark times. Choose your belief and kick the shit out of your enemies. Give vent to your intolerance! Religious hate has never been so much fun."

Stunt Pilot

launch game

One of the first games I played after my gf dumped me. And this really helped me keep busy. Very simplistic and fantastic gameplay. You are a stunt pilot not exactly running on adrenaline but daring enough to zoom your plane through various rings suspended in the sky. You control your beautiful plane designed by some 3 yr old girl using only 3 keys.:

[Up] - To move your plane up.
[Down] - Hold your breath .. To move your plane down.
[Space] - Speed boost.

Using Speed boost you can rack up more points in your bag.. but the plane becomes equally difficult to control.

[Up] and [Down] keys may move your planes in exactly opposite direction of what you expected if your plane is moving towards left. Have fun.

New Metal Slug (2D Scrolling Flash Game)

launch game

New Metal Slug is an awesome 2D scrolling flash game. Its one of the best action shooters game available. It is one level remake of SNK's famous arcade platformer with enhanced graphics. If you miss the days of Prince of Persia then you'll surely enjoy this one.

Controls(These are configurable)
DN - S

J - Fire
K - Jump
L - throw grenade

The game size is approx 3MB so if you have an extremely slow dial-up connection then you may want to avoid this. The flash swf file can be copied from the temporary directory if you want to play it offline but I'm not sure whether copyright laws allow it for personal use. So do it at your own discretion.

Chronon - Play with Time

launch game

Kronos is the Greek god of time and so the name Chronon. Enough teaching.. Eyemaze produces some really innovative and challenging puzzle games. Chronon is no exception and the gameplay is fabulous. Its a point and click game but not like others in the same genre. You'll have to think hard. The most interesting part of eyemaze games is that it adds one more dimension to your game - Time and that's where all the fun lies. The game starts with some weird looking monster going out of his house at 6 in the morning. A ghost that works during day time and returns back at 7 in the evening. There is a li'l yellow man in a cage. We have to return the Yellow man his freedom. A small hint: You dont need to kill the ghost to be free, you can also make him happy.. umm.. amke him some nice dish till he comes back. I wont spoil much of your fun discover it for yourself and enjoy. The Score at the bottom will give you an indicator if you are moving in the right direction.

Chaos Theory

launch game

The name "chaos theory" comes from the fact that the systems that the theory describes are apparently disordered, but chaos theory is really about finding the underlying order in apparently random data. Well I know you'd have hit me if you'd have got hold of me.. Ok so before my visitors start closing down the windows, lets start talking about the game.. The game starts with some text which I tried hard to understand but couldnt.. It was japanese or may be chinese or may be some martian language... whatever it is just click on the first word and you'll enter the game.. it comprises of some circles moving up and down.. What you have to do is click somewhere on the screen at a point when there would be maximum chaos.. When you click a large circle will appear on the screen and when it collides with the smaller circles another big circle appears.. You can click only once... Try to make all 50 circles collide... This game is addictive.. atleast it was for me n I hope it will be for all of you guys too... enjoy..

Penguin Swing

launch game

This one is old. But some games are worth mentioning and I dont want to miss out on this one appearing on my blogs. Beating up that little penguin has helped me get out of my frustration created by my dumb headed superiors. You ara a snowman and a penguin will jump from above just to let you hit him. Depending upon the timing the penguin is thrown away when you hit him. The distance b/w you and the penguin earns you that many points. Believe me this one's addictive.

Hapland 2

launch game

Well Hapland was a challenge, rt? Get ready for more adventure and challenge with the sequel(?) Hapland 2. Robin Allen has lived upto the expectations set for this much awaited game. Your Goal? Restore power to the portal in order to save a princess or something. Just light the damn torches. Sometimes helpful symbols are engraved on the walls. Click on everything! No, really, everything. Even that thin pink thing that doesnt look like it does anything.

launch game

Hapland is a fun game and presents you with an interactive world where you have to guess how to reach your goal (and the goal itself I suppose). But so that you are not left guessing here is what you are supposed to do: Light up both the torches on the circle at top left corner of the screen which would open the stone portal to end up. See if you can complete this without any help from walkthroughs available on the net.

A Different Point and Click Game

Samorost 2

launch game

I dont enjoy point and click games much so I was a li'l skeptical before I started playing this one but to my surprise this game turned out to be the best game in the genre I had ever played. Our strange hero's dog gets kidnapped by aliens and you need now to help our weird hero find his dog and escape. There are some really great graphics and photorealistic images (though at times it seems they have used real photographs). Great work by Amanita Designs.

Bullet Time

launch game

Get started working on your reflexes. This game could have been a li'l bland if not for online scores. Its fun to see yourself improving and competing with other players (though there are some ridiculously high scores for first couple of players in the hall of fame). The game is simple and very easy to play. You'll see a gun after the game has launched. Wait and right click your mouse as soon as a bullet is fired. Clicking before the bullet gets fired will give you a penalty. As levels progress you'll be provided lesser and lesser time to dodge. See for yourself n enjoy.
