is the new game from Terry Cavanagh
It looks like a simple isometric-view platformer but every level (once the game proper starts) is essentially an optical illusion.
It will do your head in. In the best possible way. [more inside]

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

Educational gamesmaker Preloaded
has recently made two strategy games for English TV station Channel 4. 1066
is a mix of tactics, insult-typing, bowmanship, rhythm-game and narration by Ian Holm. Trafalgar Origins
is all Napoleonic high seas derringdo all the time, as you sail your English ship in real time against the damnable French and Spanish. Whether you want to hoist the sails or call your opponent a stench weasel, they are fun little games which have the added bonus of teaching you about British history. Both games can be played solo or multiplayer. [via Rock Paper Shotgun, where they like those games quite a lot]

Thanks to a lot of what I've read on Metafilter, I've found some amazing websites (many of these have been posted before), and I've built up kind of a Sunday routine that starts at Post Secret
, then continues toTXComics
, where I check the weeks updates on Kukuburi
and The Abominable Charles Christopher
, all the while hoping that Sin Tutulo
will be back soon (Feb 28th, they say). From there I check out A Softer World
, and every once in a while, go back to check on comics that seem to have stopped, like We The Robots
and Simulated Comic Product
(which seems to have undergone some changes.
The key? I usually finish with Bob the Angry Flower
, whose recommendations are always worth a shot. Therefore, I give you Infectonator

(Flash game) Build a city with 18 available components. The order in which those components are employed determines how they'll interact and how far the city will develop. There's one correct order that will score the full amount of points. (via

A new Samarost-style game
brought to us by
Amanita, the same folks who authored
Samarost. You can see the same style, although this one is actually a
band advertisement and is much shorter and easier than Samarost.

Love sushi? Love race cars? Wish there was some way to combine the two?
Supaa Sushi Races
Like Wacky Races
, but with joy of driving sushi. Flash, possibly NSFW if you think a cartoon woman with her top off would be a bit much.

Not really a game, but is scary/funny: This is a projection of the most likely outcome of a new war in the Gulf. I used sophisticated temporal algorithms and historical semiotic analysis to achieve an accuracy rating of 99.999%. It's the mother of all Flash games.

Bet the Farm.
Friday Flash Fun! Do you have what it takes to run a modern farm? This online game pits your decision making against the forces of nature and the market in a simple, clever, educational flash game. I made $9.33 an hour!
Who will be MetaFilter's master farmer?

Congress Woman requests Flash game removal
on NewGrounds.com. The game is not being removed for its violent content, or depection of blood and gore. Instead it is the subject matter of the game that has raised the spectre of censorship.
The game in question, Kaboom!
, is about suicide bombers, the object being to blow up as many people as possible.
Do you think that a game about a Palestinian captured by the Israeli army to act as a human shield would warrant the same type fo request?

is an addictive online game based on the real-life sport of footbag freestyle. Think of it as extreme Hacky Sack. Try to hit as many huge trick combinations as you can without dropping the footbag. Try to pull off the Nemisis, the Paradox Torque or the elusive Bedwetter.
