This is Zombotron.
You can scavenge for items and kill the undead in this Flash game. Your less-advanced mechanical brethren may even shoot you on site, as they are only programmed to detect motion. Welcome to Zombotron.

Twenty years ago today, the gaming world saw the launch of a truly landmark title: Sonic the Hedgehog
. Developed as a vehicle for a new Sega mascot, the fluid, vibrant, cheery-tuned wonderland swiftly became the company's flagship product, inspiring over the ensuing decades an increasingly convoluted universe
of TV shows, comic books
, and dozens of games on a variety of systems (all documented in this frighteningly comprehensive TVTropes portal
). And while in recent years the series has turned out more and more mediocre 3D and RPG efforts
, the original games remain crown jewels of the 16-bit era. So why not kick off this anniversary by replaying the titles that started it all for free in your browser: Sonic the Hedgehog
(1991), Sonic the Hedgehog 2
(1992), Sonic the Hedgehog 3
(1994), Sonic & Knuckles
(1994). Or click inside for music, remakes, and other fun stuff! [more inside]

'Dumbland is a crude, stupid, violent, absurd series. If it is funny, it is funny because we see the absurdity of it all.'
Fresh off the critical success of Mulholland Dr.
] in 2001, David Lynch
set out in 2002 to conquer the internet, creating a paywalled website to feature original content like his short film Darkened Room
, an anti-sitcom called Rabbits
, and the intentionally lowbrow DumbLand
Featuring animation, music, sound effects, and voice acting entirely by Lynch, DumbLand
is a black and white Flash animation series with a total running time of approximately half an hour. A few notes on DumbLand from Lynch.
[Also previously: David Lynch's Weather Report
] [And super-previously.

Freaky Friday Flash Fun, Flatting Flies:
is a top-down shooter. Well, "shooter" is a stretch; this is more of "stomp, drop things, overkill with naplam" attack on pretty much every homeowner's nightmare: a bunch of crawly bugs in the dark that avoid the flashlight.
The bugs don't shoot back, so the game is just an endurance test by the player. And there are two awards for actually sticking around long enough. Weapons include a rock, your boot, various guns (including sniper rifles), rocket launchers, an anvil, naplam, and finally, a nuclear weapon.
