Free Game of the Week - Four Color
Games: Posted: 12/7/07 07:35 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 9 Comments

Try to capture as much territory as you can without any two adjacent territories having the same colour. What can I say? It sounds wank but it's just as addictive as Gamedesign's other game Dice Wars was.

Oh an apparently it's related to a maths problem. Fuck that shit, I say.

Free Game of the Week - Castlewars
Games: Posted: 14/6/07 15:17 Author: Funkodrom Comments: 11 Comments

Another strategy game. This time it's a card game, like MtG et al I imagine. The idea is you need to build a castle 100 high before your opponent. You could just knock your opponent's castle down instead though.

Free Game of the Week - Bowmaster
Games: Posted: 7/6/07 08:11 Author: Funkodrom Comments: 8 Comments

Mr Birdseed is a bit busy at the moment so he's asked me to post my FGOTW suggestion myself. And here it is Bowmaster. It's part RTS, part skill shooting game. To get started you will need to know (because the instructions suck) that to shoot your bow you click on your bowmaster, hold the mouse button down, pull back away from the direction you want to fire, and let go to unleash your arrow. As you kill all the enemies on each level you get to go to a shop where you can buy new skills, like the ability to summon foot soldiers and siege weapons of your own, and you can also buy better arrows. Worth persevering past the first couple of minutes when you don't know what the hell is going on. Oh yeah, one other thing, it does save your progress in a cookie, so you don't have to complete it in one go. Good shootin'!

Free Game of the Week - Indestructotank

It's frustrating, fairly random, but oh-so-much fun. Bounce your indestructible tank onto enemies to score combos before your fuel runs out.

Free Game of the Week - Stone Cold Curling
Games: Posted: 9/4/07 09:00 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 3 Comments

It's the most addictive thing since... well, I guess since Bloons last week really.

http://www.wedonicethings.com/

It's basically curling without most of the tactics (boo!) and with bad AI (boo!) but with a fun interface and a polished look. It's one of my favourite skill games on the net at the moment and I'm tantalisingly close to the high score table...

Free Game of the Week - Bloons
Games: Posted: 3/4/07 20:55 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 24 Comments

Okay, this doesn't have tricky adventure-style gameplay but I think it might go down better than the recent weeks of material anyway 'cause it's damned addictive.

Pop balloons using darts. 50 Levels.

SlowwHand sent in this fiendish, 15-level puzzler that's a combination of three five-level games. The first two are not über-thrilling, I've played them before and they're fun and inventive but not so challenging, but the last set is fiendish. Fiendish, I tell you.

Free Game of the Week - Dotville Deluxe
Games: Posted: 20/3/07 08:44 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 1 Comment

Time again for another attempt at flash-based and turn-based strategy, this time from La France. I find this hard given the turn contraints, but you Civ vets should breeze though it. Skillful bastards.
