is a puzzle game that uses music to define the pieces. Find outlines for songs, and then try to put them together...very fun and addicting. Don't try to play with the sound off obviously.

Friday Flash Fun:
Japanese designer Tesshi-e
makes beautiful, evocative, maddening escape games
. Most recent among them is Escape Hotel 4
. You may like to check into rooms
. Or perhaps you'd prefer to escape from the tatami room
, the small bar
, the hexagon room
, the dome room
or the restroom
. Examine every item carefully, because nothing is quite as it seems. Expect a lot of lateral thinking and a sprinkling of maths. And before you leave, be sure to take one last look for the Happy Coin: Happy coin will bring happiness to you!!
English-language reviews and walkthroughs are here

is a simple Flash game. Shoot the descending circles. Some are big and slow, some are small and quick. Shoot the power-ups to collect them. Soon you'll have a shield and some auto-turrets to help you clear the screen. But beware: it gets harder and more frantic as the wind increases. How long can you survive? A fun Missile Command/Asteroids hybrid. (Via reddit

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.

is a simple flash-based puzzle game that involves getting your object from point A to B.
Levels you complete can be scrolled through using "x" to move to the next level and "d" to return the level select button to the first level.
The browser saves your progress, so you can close your tab/browser and return to it later.

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]
