Free Game of the Week - Sprout
Games: Posted: 7/3/07 22:49 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 5 Comments

A little bit of adventuring fun in this lovely, hand-drawn gem. Just the right difficulty, not too short, and an interesting gameplay mechanic.

Free Game of the Week - Die Anstalt
Games: Posted: 19/2/07 10:30 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: Add A Comment!

One of the most well-rendered interactive environments ever found on the web, methinks. No hard work has been spared on the individual art resources, and the game feels really professional.

The object of the game is to treat a series of abused cuddly toys with mental disorders. Apply the right terapeutic methods in the right order to learn more about the patients, and eventually cure them...

Free Game of the Week - BBC Climate Challenge
Games: Posted: 12/2/07 12:47 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 21 Comments

Wow, golly, wee, kids, it's EDUTAINMENT!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sn/hottopics/c...mate_challenge/

Actually, this is a very challenging turn-based state-management game where you have to balance your popularity rating, your resources, your impact on the environment and (most opaquely) your finances with a limited array of possible policy intiatives, some of which lead to new options in the future.

Free Game of the Week - Get Hostile!
Games: Posted: 5/2/07 09:49 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 2 Comments

I hate this game. I hate it with a vengeance. I've played the supposedly simple tutorial game something like thirty times and only beaten it once and it's... so... frustrating!

http://www.gethostile.com/

I wouldn't hate it if the rule set was impenetrable. It isn't. There's only one goal (earning money in a fictional and highly unrealistic "market") and only two ways of doing it (takeover bonuses and share price increases), both of which are simple and transparent. You only do two things in the game, really, one of which is semi-random and the other of which seems straightforward. So how can I keep losing? The tactics are not nearly as straightforward as you'd think...

Free Game of the Week - Two simplistic ones
Games: Posted: 29/1/07 11:24 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 8 Comments

These two games are super-simplistic in every way - gameplay-wise, graphics-wise, content-wise. Too small, I think to go into this feature alone, but interesting enough to work as a couple. Both have a certain charm and a decent level of challenge, and sometimes that's all that's needed.

#1: Tangerine Panic - run back and forth.

#2: Pond Skater - click occasionally to turn left.

I don't know why this game is so moreish despite bieng so simplistic, but it is.

Free Game of the Week - Sobics
Games: Posted: 17/1/07 20:17 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 12 Comments

Diverting, original game in the "increasing rows of stuff coming from above" genre. I like the gameplay mechanic.

Free Game of the Week - Winter Drift
Games: Posted: 8/1/07 14:28 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 26 Comments

Thanks for the response from last week, this one is also fun and addictive but a tad more skill-based and seasonal.

Still, there's a definite tactical element in the order of the boards...
