Papa’s Donuteria

Do you know this guy:

His name is Papa Louie, and he’s a pretty famous guy. He owns a pizzeria, an ice cream restaurant, hotdog restaurant, taco restaurant, pancake restaurant… Besides that he has activities going on in cupcakes, chicken wings, and most recently donuts. His donut restaurant is appropriately called papa’s donuteria. Of course, Papa Louie is a fictional figure (invented by Flipline Studios). Every once in a while (about every 2 months?) he is featured in a new game, each time with a different theme but the same concept: serve customers in a restaurant by preparing a specific food. Be on time to provide good service and build up your restaurant empire. The papa louie games will keep you entertained for a long time and for sure, there is no shortage of titles.

Mighty Knight

FireBeast Studio is one of the more productive game studios. Most recently they have produced smash hits such as Zombo Buster and Might Knight. Mighty Knight is a battle game in which you help a brave (& mighty!) knight to defeat monsters.

FireBeast seems to get (almost) everything right, from stunning graphics (see image below) to engaging gameplay. The games also feature a little bit of humor.

To give you an idea of the graphics level:

Mighty Knight will keep you entertained for a while. The walkthrough already takes about 54 minutes. But, hey, it’s summer holidays. So you have enough time!

Raze 3

As a big fan of the previous Raze games (Raze and Raze 2), I’m very excited that Raze 3 is finally coming out. It seems that it will be sponsored by ArmorGames and Notdoppler (who both have a record of sponsoring only top notch games). There’s even a trailer of the Raze 3 game available already. I’m excited. So should you be. Even if it’s half as awesome as the previous 2 editions, it will be awesome enough to keep you clustered to your screen for a couple of days.

More Worldcup related stuff

Trollface Quest 5

The World Cup is going well. Some big surprises came in the beginning: the European teams of Spain, England, and Italy didn’t make it to the second round, and the Latin-American teams performed surprisingly well (Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, Costa Rica, Columbia, Ecuador, …). Neymar and Messi seem to be finding their best shape.

This version of Trollface Quest adopted the Brazilian World Cup setting for a funny trolling game. Can you finish it? If you prefer Spanish over English (or just want to practice your Spanish a bit), you can check out the Spanish version of Trollface Quest 5.

Have fun!

Luis Suarez… What an idiot!

For those who didn’t see the Uruguay-Italy match at the World Cup, or haven’t seen footage of the biting incident, you can watch this video which has footage.

Luis Suarez, a football / soccer player for Liverpool FC who plays for Uruguay, sunk his teeth into the arm of Italian defender Chiellini. It is not the first time Suarez does this: he has done it twice before (one time with Liverpool against Chelsea, once with Ajax against PSV Eindhoven). Both times he has received punishments from the FIFA, and that’s what happened this time as well. What an idiot!

Some developers were quick to release some games making fun of the incident. Two are pacman inspired: the Wrath of Suarez and Biteman. Others make you bite while the referee is not watching (this one and this one). Only one seems to be educational, it tells you NOT to bite your opponent: Suarez Bites Back from the British Mousebreaker.

Anyways, it didn’t end well for Suarez. He is suspended for 4 months, and has seen some sponsors (notably, Adidas), end their cooperation with him. It’s his own fault, the idiot!

Run 3 – A running game

There are quite a lot of running games around (here’s a list), but the one that really stands out is Run 3.

It is made by Joseph Cloutier and Alex Ostroff. Even though Run and Run 2 were good already, Run 3 takes the game and genre to a whole other level.

It has everything: simple concept, fun graphics, and most importantly: the difficulty level is just right. The player constantly gets the feeling: “I almost made that!”. Anyways, the game is tons of fun, and people all over the world are playing it. You should too.

Dream Car Racing

Of the many sidescrolling driving games around, Dream Car Racing stands out.

Its controls are basic: arrow keys to drive (up to accelerate, down to brake, left and right to balance the car), car control feels average, but the sheer amount of upgrades and options is immense. It has a more elaborate upgrade system than I have ever seen.

Here is a walkthrough video. Scroll to the end to see the possibilities…

Well, what are you waiting for? Go play the game yourself:
