Take asteroids, add in an upgrade system and more realistic rock fracturing and you get the frantic experience of Space Rubbish. (Flash)
They're not quite a dog, nor a bean but a hybrid of both. They love to appear out of nowhere and offer random bits of trivia whether you asked for it or not.
is a new flash gaming portal.
Games include Captain Dan V Zombie Plan
, reminiscent of Berzerk,
, an unusual platformer that combines level manipulation with quick-reflex timing and jumping,
, an acrobatic timed racer and a ton more I haven't even tried yet.
What sets bonus level apart from other gaming portals is that it's headed by three great names in game development, Wouter Visser (Wouter), Tõnu Paldra (tonypa) and Jean-Philippe Sarda (JP). Part of their philosophy is allowing anyone who registers to make and share levels for their games, as well as giving budding designers access to the flash APIs
used to create all of bonus level's games.
is an interesting twist on Simon Tatham's Net game
. Rather than creating a network to a single "power" node, you have to manage multiple colors, and mixing colors in crafty and devious ways.
a color matching game for you to enjoy. Each level has you matching facets on squares or triangles, playing against a par move. The rules are simple, but complexity ramps up fast.
is difficult. How far can you run?
is a flash game -- a puzzle/ strategy hybrid that's one part Same Game
and one part Tower defense
and one part Edward Gorey. Decent art, sound, story and gameplay.
is a scavenger hunt in the world of Lineage
. Cunning puzzles and frustration await you.
Friday Flash Fun in convenient Choose-Your-Own-Adventure format.
is an acceptable side-scrolling game with a cute gimmick.
is like AskMe, but only for the question, "Hey guys, what is this song?"
2D Flash Portal
A competent 2-d scroller featuring mechanics from the new Valve game Portal.
Don't you know that I'm toxic?
Toxic has you controlling a clean-suit wearing bomberman across destructible platform mazes in search of glowing green canisters, powerups and enemies to bomb the living bejesus out of. The chiptune soundtrack is pretty nice, too.
Behold the Uniqlock

Tactics 100 Live
A flash game similar to Final Fantasy Tactics or Ogre Tactics. Spend 100 points to create an 8 unit army and battle it out on a 7x7 grid. Practice against an AI opponent, or face off in multiplayer combat.
Mission in Snowdriftland
It's been snowing all day in Denver, and work's been cancelled, so Flash Friday comes early, courtesy Nintendo. Mission in Snowdriftland is a SNES-flavored sidescroller: control a snowman through 25 levels of jumping, snowflake-collecting, sea-otter smashing action. Find all of a level's snowflakes, and you can download a sekrit prize
. I don't know what they are, because some goddamn fish skeleton keeps knocking me into the drink and killing me. Fun, challenging action here.
Did I mention it's an advent calendar, too? One level a day until Christmas.
Games by Tony Pa.
jayisgames just reviewed tony pa's new flash game, Geartaker. Geartaker has you leaping from cog to wheel to gear in a precise ballet of timing and angles, completed by an eclectic, interactive retro-synth soundtrack. After a good 30 minutes of that, I explored Tony's site more thoroughly, enjoying Trinks, Nelinurk (haunting soundtracks both), the othello like simplicity and complexity of Shooot. There's also the fiendish puzzler Gemsmith, the shocking anti-consumerist geometry of Save the Shoppers, and the fun is rounded out by the tiny retrolicious BoatRider.
Unfortunately, there are no links straight to the games, and trying to link to them directly results in getting redirected to the home page. Suffer through the start page, and you'll be rewarded with a treasure trove of novel and engaging flash entertainment.
FLASH GAME FOR YOUR FRIDAY: Multiplayer Asteroids
The name, Multiplayer Asteroids (or is it Asteroids Multiplayer?) is a bit of a misnomer since the asteroids did not actually make it into this version of the game. Instead, each player (up to 16 in a room) pilots a ship in an all-out deathmatch, melee style, with the objective being to rack up more kills than deaths. link and description via jayisgames

Lego Worldbuilder 2
An enjoyable and challenging sequel to the Lego Worldbuilder.

Megaman Vs. Ghosts and Goblins
Megaman's trapped in the fiendishly difficult world of Ghosts and Goblins in this fan made flash game. The game's instructions don't mention that once the game is loaded, you need to click on START, then tap enter a few times to get things rolling.
Only a fat man with a shotgun survives the zombie apocalypse in this Abuse-like
game with a death metal soundtrack.
