13 Days in Hell

You are in a world full of zombies, and your only chance to escape will come in after 13 days. Will you be able to survive or will you give in to the zombies’ hunger for your fresh brain? 13 Days in Hell puts you into the shoes of a man trapped in the zombie apocalypse with no choice but to try and survive until rescue arrives. Hopefully, the zombies don’t get to your rescuers first.
13 Days in Hell is a first person shooter that drops you into a zombie apocalypse setting with nothing but your gun and your shooting skills to protect you. Each day will introduce new and more challenging zombies to go through, but each new day is a new chance, right? In some days, you will also get new weapons that will help you out in surviving this horrible ordeal. In terms of visuals, this game is moderately good. The zombies are pretty bland and ugly, but the look and feel of the game is alright. The sound does its job of building the tensioned filled atmosphere with its creepy music. The gameplay is pretty simple as well as the controls. You aim using the mouse cursor and you shoot using the left mouse button. There is a little addition to the shooting mechanic though, making it a bit more complicated but all the more challenging. The cursor will have a little circle in the middle of the reticle with a red dot circling around it. This red dot is where your bullet will land, so timing your shots to the spinning red dot is key to getting those juicy headshots. The goal is to survive 13 days. Any death in the middle of your struggle to survive will send you back to day one, so do your best and make sure that you are always prepared.
There’s been a lot of zombie apocalypse games coming out in the past few years, but not all of them were good enough to become triple A titles. 13 Days in Hell is an OK game that could’ve been better with a bit more polish in graphics and gameplay, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a great game. 13 Days in Hell is a good game that deserves anyone with a craving for a zombie apocalypse game’s attention.

Squeek

Squeek is a pretty unique game in its own right. It is simple, it is fun, each game is short, yet each game can be a totally different experience. Squeek’s simplistic design and gameplay is its biggest charm, and is really the only thing that will keep you coming back. Squeek is a great game for time killing, like some of the great mobile games.
Squeek is a point and click game where your main goal is to move around the screen and get the highest score possible without dying. You start the game by clicking on the screen. When the game starts, you will see a small gray dot; that is your character. Clicking anywhere on the screen will make your character move, and every time you move, you gain points depending on the distance moved. Easy, right? Well, here comes the tricky part. There will also be red dots moving from one side of the screen to the other. A single touch from these red dots will instantly kill you, thus preventing you from gaining a higher score. As you go on, there will be dots that move faster than normal, some will even just speed through the screen. Make sure to be extra careful, but not too careful as some of the red dots may also go through you if you’re not moving. That’s pretty much it. Get a higher score and gain the bragging rights.
Squeek is a very simple game. It’s not a very long game, and some may even say that there might not be any sense to it. The question is, though, does a game really have to make sense for it to be fun? Does it have to be long to be enjoyed? The answer to both of those questions can be answered by no, and Squeek goes out of its way to show you it’s true.

Legends of Honor

Online strategy games have been all the rage recently. Everyone is playing one form or another of an online building strategy game that forces you to play with (or mostly against) other people. Legends of Honor is no different, but at the same time, so different that it’s good.

Legends of Honor is a strategy game that is played online, meaning there’s a lot of other people playing in the different kingdoms in the world. If this is your first time playing this type of game, then Legends of Honor is actually a good game to start with. Starting a new game requires a login, and creating one is as easy 1, 2, 3. Once you start the game, you’ll be greeted by a sign up screen asking for a desired username, password, and a valid email address. Once you’re done inputting the information, you’ll be sent to the game. The game starts out with a nice and easy little tutorial that will help you out with the game. Most of the game is like the basic strategy RPG games. Build buildings that will help you get more resources. Get more resources to be able to make more units. Make more units to be able to attack other kingdoms and get more resources. Get more resources to be able to make more buildings. Do all these to become stronger, and then attack even stronger kingdoms. The main goal of the game, as with all other strategy RPGs, is to become the strongest kingdom of them all.

Legends of Honor takes the strategy genre to the medieval times, which makes it a very interesting game. There’s a lot of great mechanics that can be even better with a little polish, but even then it’s still good enough to be played for a good long while. If you’ve been looking for a good strategy online RPG, Legends of Honor is a great place to start.

Flipside

It has been so long since a futuristic racing game has gotten me excited, and thanks to Flipside, that drought has finally gone to pass. Flipside, as mentioned, is a racing game that is clearly set in the future (though it’s never really mentioned, but hey, you can tell by how it looks anyway) and brings a speedy and crazy racing experience right from your computer monitor.

Flipside’s charm is all about the beautiful tron-like futuristic cars and the challenging racing mechanics. This game can also be played with 2 players, so you can get a friend in on the fun and fight for a bit of bragging rights. The controls are the left and right (for the first player) or A and D (for the second player) arrow keys to drive your vehicle, and pressing the up (for the first player) or W (for the second player) arrow key to jump. There’s only a single course to race on, but that doesn’t mean that the game will be the same each race because your opponent’s movements are also a huge factor in winning. Any bump from any obstacles (including walls) and enemies will immediately kill all your momentum and bring you to a sudden stop, so do your best to avoid bumping into anything. The races are all about momentum and knowing which direction you need to drive on. Once the direction changes, you can quickly switch the button you’re pressing to keep your momentum. The first one to finish 3 laps wins the whole race.

It’s really hard to find good racing games that can pull of the futuristic feel online. It’s been years since a something of this genre has ever come close to the F-Zero games of past, but if you’re a fan of games that are the same as F-Zero, then Flipside would be a nice little game you can have fun with.

Saloon Brawl 2

Wild, Wild West games will never get old. If the game involves beating down hardened criminals as a sheriff, then it’s even better! Saloon Brawl 2 takes you back to those times, when everything was settled with a good old brawl outside a bar.
Saloon Brawl 2 is a brawler game that puts you in the shoes of a sheriff assigned to keep the peace around the Wild West. How do you keep the peace in a place filled with drunk people and criminals? With your fists, of course! Each level is filled with fighting people, and it’s your job to beat some sense into these people. You can move your character with the arrow keys, pressing the Z button on your keyboard will make the sheriff guard attacks, X will make him punch anyone in front of him (pressing it multiple times will result in a combo), and pressing C will pick up whatever or whoever is in front of him (pressing X while holding something will hit anyone in front of him with whatever you’re carrying, and pressing C again will throw it in front of you). There is a bar at the bottom right part of the screen that fills up every time you do damage, and once it fills up, you can press the Space Bar to do a special move that deals a lot of damage to an area around the sheriff. There’s also a health bar that can be seen on the bottom right hand corner of the screen which indicates your Hit points. If this bar becomes completely depleted, it’s game over, so take care and remember to block once in a while.
If you’re into action games, the Saloon Brawl 2 is a pretty good choice. If you’re also in to Wild West scenario games, than this game is a great choice. If you’re also in to beating up people for the sake of justice, then there would be no reason for you not to play Saloon Brawl 2!

Mighty Knight

Play as a Knight of ye olde times and bust out all your moves to destroy all the monsters along your path to save your castle in Mighty Knight. Take your sword and get some allies on the way. Slaying the undead and other monsters has never been this fun, so make sure to dive in to the world of Mighty Knight.

Mighty Knight puts you into the boots (or grieves) of a knight that journeys to the Doom Castle to save their kingdom from the hordes of undeads, orcs, and zombies. There will be a lot of danger ahead, but luckily, you will meet worthy allies as you go through the forests and mountains. This game is filled with hack-and-slash action that is very hard to put down. The simple controls keeps the game flowing smoothly while the intelligent AI keeps the game interesting, along with the side quests for each stage. The first stage is a tutorial on how to control your knight in battle. Pressing the arrow keys or W, A, S, D will move your knight in accordance to the direction pressed and pressing J or Z will make your knight attack. The K and L keys will use your skills once you get them, and pressing P will pause the game. The battles are fought in a multi-directional plane, and your enemies can come on to you from different sides, so try your best to either kill them quickly or dodge them and kill them all in a few swoops. After the tutorial, you will be sent to the world map where you choose the stage you want to play (usually it would be good to keep progressing before playing the side quests) and having the option to upgrade your knight and allies. The goal of the game is pretty straightforward, kill everything, move on to the next level, then kill everything again.

There’s a lot of hack and slash games out there that are nice, but Mighty Knight really deserves a place in anyone’s hack-and-slash must play lists as this game can really keep you hooked for hours. The simple gameplay yet hard combat AI are good factors on keeping this game interesting and upping it’s playing value. If you’re in the market for a good hack-and-slash combat game, Mighty Knight might just be what you’re looking for.

Earth Taken 3

Aliens have landed on earth, and they’re not the very friendly kind. They are destroying everyone in sight and killing everyone that opposes them, everyone else gets enslaved to become their own soldiers to kill even more humans. On the process of being brainwashed to be enslaved, one person escapes and will try to take back what is rightfully theirs, their planet and their lives!

Earth Taken 3 is an alien apocalypse game filled with action and mystery, and a lot of alien blood. Everything has been taken over and it’s your job to take everything back. You will team up with other survivors that will notice that you are pretty good with weapons, and might be one of humanity’s hopes. The game is pretty simple, especially because in every new step you take, the game will tell you what to do and how to do it, but then leaves you out in the open to try it out for yourself. In any case, the game is very easy to control. Using the arrow keys, you can move your character around in the barren world, and pressing the X button makes you jump while pressing the Z button uses your weapon to attack. That’s pretty much it. You follow the signs to get to the first shelter, and that shelter will need help with a few things including food, rescue missions, and a few other things. Everyone will need your help in order to save the world, so prepare and fill yourself with courage.

Earth Taken 3 is a wonderfully written game and is really one of the best alien apocalypse games I’ve played in a while. The simple controls along with the great storyline of the game will keep you playing for hours on end. If you’re looking for a nice little adventure game filled with aliens, mystery, and a great soundtrack, then you better not miss out on this one!

Agario 3D!

Agario was already a great game with its simple mechanic yet broad appeal, and I believe that anything done well in 2D will do even better in 3D! Agario 3D is the same great game, the same simple style, but with the new and more beautiful 3D visuals. Here’s to another few hours of playing online and trying to get the highest score.

If Agario is in the list of the games you’ve played before, then you would be very familiar with how this game plays and what you need to do. For the new players, Agario 3D lets you play as a little sphere (for the Agar.io players, yes, it’s a sphere now instead of a 2D circle) that needs to grow by eating spheres that are smaller than you. Easy enough, right? The catch is, there will be other players in the world you’re playing on that will either be bigger than you (and they can and WILL eat you if they catch you) or smaller than you (it’s best if you try to eat these guys). If you can’t find players in the immediate area, there will be neutral spheres everywhere that you can consume to grow yourself by a bit before you find a player you can consume to become bigger. There’re also a few skills you need to learn to effectively play the game along with the controls. The controls are W, A, S, and D to move the camera around. You can move your sphere by moving your mouse, so anywhere your mouse cursor is, the sphere will follow. Pressing the space bar will split your sphere in half and shoot the other half to whatever direction your cursor is currently in. If you hit anything that is smaller than half of you, you immediately consume it, and if you hit anything bigger than half of you, that half of you gets consumed. It will take a minute or so to be able to get the 2 halves back together, so you will need to be careful as you try to fuse. Pressing W will spit small spheres from your body, thus reducing your size bit by bit. This skills is usually used to run away from fast opponents, or for those playing with a friend, some will use this button to feed someone more spheres to increase just one player’s size to dominate.

Agar.io 3D takes the simple game, Agario, to a whole different level with its great visuals. Though there might be a bit of getting used to if you played a lot of the first game, this is still a game worth playing and is probably worth a few hours of your time.

Hoverboard by Xkcd

There are games that makes a lot of sense in a whole lot of different ways, like the story or the gameplay or in some other way. Then you get games like Hoverboard, that really doesn’t make a lot of sense, but you still play it to find out what it really is, and then a few more minutes later, you find out that it really does not even try to make any sense of anything, but you still like playing it because you like hoverboards.

Hoverboard is a game about a guy on a hoverboard. That pretty much it. You can move by using the arrow keys to move to any direction, and yes, including upwards. You start out in some sort of skatepark with a few coins to collect, but collecting those coins aren’t really as necessary as you might think. You can move out of the skatepark to find that there’s a lot more to this game’s world. There are a few places you can go to find people with weird conversations, some funny, and some just plain weird, some will even be a few meters up talking about aluminum and one of them will be at the bottom of the well and he says he just like wells. It’s that type of weird. It’s still a pretty cool game though, and the humor is actually pretty good. The animations are also very smooth, though that’s not really too much to say since the only thing they animated is your character.

This game is a very weird one, but there’s really not much to expect since it was created as a little project and wasn’t really created to be a full game (XKCD is a cartoon site after all). It’s still pretty fun though since the concept of a hoverboard is cool and seeing people with weird conversations is pretty funny. If you’ve got time to spare and like a game you can pick up and leave anytime, then Hoverboard would be a good game to go to.

Inca Adventure

Inca Adventure is a great two player game on Newgrounds, but if you don’t have a friend in the immediate vicinity, then no need to worry since this game can be played alone and can still be a lot of fun, but be ready for a huge challenge.
The game is about a father and daughter team that goes in to the pyramids to explore it while they gather a few treasures for themselves. Inca Adventure is all about cooperation and can be finished pretty easily if you are playing with a friend that helps you out. The controls are pretty simple. Pressing W, A, S, and D will move the daughter while pressing the arrow keys will move the dad. Each of them has separate, unique abilities that they can use to help each other out. The daughter can jump higher and reach higher platforms while the dad can do only a short jump but can lift heavy objects. There will be platforms that cannot be reached alone, so any one of the 2 can use the other as a platform to reach the higher levels. You will really need to cooperate properly to actually get to the end of each level. A level ends when both the dad and daughter get to the door to enter the next room, but the door will only open when all of the shiny treasures are collected. Using all of your skills and wit, along with good cooperation, will get you all the way to the end of all 20 levels.
If you have a friend or a partner to play with, this game can be a whole lot of fun, or frustrating depending on the other player. If you’re alone, it’s still a great game, but controlling 2 people at the same time can be a bit challenging. Inca Adventure is a must play for those that like platforming with a bit of puzzle solving.
