(a.k.a. Indestructotank 3)
Now with nukes! And blimps! Blimps that go "boing"! And an adventure mode!
(original Indestructotank on MeFi
is a shockwave-game where you play a baby samurai out to rescue his mother. You run around a 3d landscape, all of which you can pick up and throw, once you grow strong enough to lift it. To start with you're picking up vases and other light items but soon enough you're lobbing houses around and eventually entire mountains. It's vaguely reminiscent of Mario 64 and Katamary Damacy.
The bad news is that you're controlling a lone, unarmed tank against countless enemies, and your fuel is limited. The good news is that you're completely indestructible, and can destroy the bad guys by hurling your own tank into them. Play Indestructotank!
is a shockwave game. The object is to match up 3 descending numbered spheres so that they make up either 10 or 20. Click on the spheres to add them together. There are 7 levels.
Escape from Detention.
It's the last day of school (well, yesterday was, technically) and you've been not just locked but trapped in the detention room; framed for a crime you didn't commit. You've got to get three crazy Canadjun youngsters out alive; but you can only succeed if you work together. Can you point and click your way toward victory? This game's fairly straightforward, but there are a few puzzles to make you scratch your head. Just about the right difficulty for a lazy Saturday afternoon. Found via jayisgames

Great Shockwave Game
- "Doom Funnel Chasers" asks you to launch projectiles through space, plugging the funnels o' doom. Each attempt leaves its own trail, producing a fun Spirograph
-ic effect. [Found via Qarcade]
Slick Ball (shockwave)
— Fun little German Marble Madness-type game.
... all you have to do is rotate the circle in the middle so it matches with the color of the spheres that come in from the corners. seems simple enough ... [note: shockwave, loud audio]
Match 3 or more animals, don't let the clock run out. (Shockwave req'd)
-- despite an 11pm curfew imposed by your girlfriend, you have returned home very late from a drink fest with your mates. You've forgotten your keys and you must now gain entrance to your flat and get into bed without upsetting your light sleeping girlfriend. [note: shockwave, alt link <--- nsfw banner ads]
kaleidodraw [note: flash]
Spy Bot. "You work by fighting DataBattles, in which you deploy and maneuver programs to defeat opposing software on the memory grid." Good wholesome fun, and highly addictive.
from the National Gallery of Art. Click images to add; drag into place; click the green tab to bring an element forward, click red to send it backward; use the controls at the bottom to resize, flip, rotate and fade elements; see if you can ever, ever stop.
-- float your robust character around and defeat the evil El Bobo! (shockwave - via tui
A puerile shockwave game. (Lots of swearing, as you might have guessed.)
Those of you with crazy multi-tasking skills might want to check out Arcadia
, where you play four different super simple games at the same time. Extra points for the stylishly retro chunky pixels look, which brings me right back to happy afternoons spent with my 2600
"Sissy" fights on the playground,
at least when I was a kid, were always the bloodiest. Now you can apply the smackdown without hurting anyone. Much. Friday
Flash Shockwave Fun
Frivolous Fun for Friday
(although not quite lighthearted…) As an avid Gorey fan, I couldn't pass up posting these interactive murder mysteries. Shockwave required.
Rockem Sockem Rabbis!
Some more Shockwave fun, just in case you had any potential productivity lingering today.
Sorry to post a shockwave.com link, but Groove Blender 2
has eaten away almost my whole morning. Drag and drop blocks onto the canvas to create your own grooves- the downloadable version includes many more beats and the option to export your groove, or save it to Shockwaves servers. Anyone know of something else this simple that is simlar but allows you to import others grooves?
The Try Group's site
uses a simple Flash "game" to deliver their central idea: that children should be encouraged to look at the world in different ways. There's a little more info
at the developer's site.
Neat concept, and also just fun to poke around in for a little while.
Here's an amusing little time-waster from Shockwave.com
Hard to believe it's been twenty years.
I've been accused in the past of only posting serious news item type links - so just to prove that i'm no stick-in-the-mud here is a fun link.
It requires shockwave plugins.....
ladies and gentlemen i give you.... table tennis!!
please enjoy this during work hours.
You bet. 3-D Pong using shockwave. It's pretty sweet. I feel like I should be listening to the soundtrack of "Tron" while I play it.
Great little shockwave game here.
Like a little slice of childhood.. I remember putting together these racetracks and racing those little electric cars along them. Great fun, and there's even a 2 player option. Sweet.
warning! addictive stuff!
Pictionary. IRC-like chat. Mix both ingredients. Serves up to 10 people confortably. Addictive when some colleagues in the same room are playing with you. Last warning : this will make productivity rate in the US economy go down (and possibly the interest rate will go up...)
Chu-Chu! Banzai Shock On!
It was Dreamcast game you were sick to death of hearing about, now it's the Shockwave game you can't quit playing. TSUBABABABA!
Everybody can be a rock star
First there were guitarists, then there were people playing the keyboards. Now with your keyboard you can play the guitar. Don't forget to thank the Rockschool
when you pick up that Grammy.
