Oh dear - as if that wasn't bad enough, there's a whole host of other GlobZ games on offer.

I've been playing this about a week now, its so addictive. The soccer mode primarily is my timewaster. My only problems is that its crowded a lot of the time, and occasionally you will hit large amounts of lag (maybe a two minute pause while before anything happens). Its a lot of fun though.

Oh, and with any free online game, 99% of the people there are underage kids trying to verbally assault you and your sexuality, as sklero noted.

I rock at arena. I suck at football, and no one wants to play the other options.

Anybody get what you're supposed to do on the intro page (you know, the one with the yellow planet and stars)?

If you move your mouse, you can change the direction of the planet. Click and pop the red bubbles to get points. If they pop on their own, then you lose a life. My highest score was 17.

Darke: Globulos is extremely good, but they could take a few lessons in organisation from the Internet Go Server. I may be wrong, but I think much of the delay isn't Net lag, but down to the system letting a user set up a game, then hog it by refusing to start play until the right opponent comes along. No doubt they'll run into all the same problems as IGS, such as 'escapers'.

Jake - I didn't notice that game, quite fun. I got 19.

250!

I promised myself I'd stop at 300.

I closed the window at 2003.

It doesn't get harder. I lost four lives before 300, and then started focusing, and didn't lose another life.

Resonance, where did you find this? Great post.

In the SomethingAwful forums, glad you enjoyed it.

raygirvan, I wasn't refering to that, although they should do something to make game creation easier.

I was referring to the game just basicly pausing halfway through a match. Its happened to me a few times, along with other people a lot. (I know its not lag in the true defination, but I'm lazy when I right =p)
