SEA LOOT

Pirate games are always cool as they let you play as the most fearsome people out in the sea, but what about the people that shake and pee their pants because of those pirates? Those people don’t really sound cooler than those scary pirates, so it wouldn’t really feel cool to play them – but here’s Sea Loot to prove that playing as the ordinary people running from pirates is even better!

Sea Loot lets you play as a little ship captained by a regular Joe that needs to ship items that the islands nearby need. Each island will need a different item each time you deliver one to them so you’ll need to keep on going. The main goal of the game is to keep delivering items until you get caught by the pirates chasing you. First things first, you’ll play by shipping items to one small island. You’ll know what they need by checking a thought bubble above that island – they’ll have an item in it. Once you know the item, you’ll need to sail around to ocean to find one of the islands with a treasure chest on it. You’ll get the item and sail back. You’ll keep doing this until you expand further and have more islands as customers. Now that there are more islands, you’ll need to learn one more important thing about shipping – you can carry more than 1 item at a time, so stockpiling them before bringing them back can be done. Additionally, pirates will be placed in the game to stop you. They’ll fire cannons at you which you’ll need to avoid. Getting hit 3 times will result in a game over. By the way, the game is controlled entirely by your mouse. Just click to where you’d like to go, and your ship will sail there. You can also just hold the left mouse button to keep on sailing and let your ship follow your cursor.

Sea Loot is a fun game, although there isn’t much content and the money you get for sailing don’t really mean anything, the mechanics and gameplay of this game just makes you keep playing as it’s easy, fun, and exciting. This is a perfect game for those looking for a game that’s quick and easy to play and learn

SKATE HOOLIGANS

The browser gamers are often left out of a lot of great games available in the mobile platform, but that’s slowly becoming a myth as more and more devs port their games over to the interwebs via browser game. Although it still has a long way to go and we still lack a lot of the great games, some devs have made it their mission to give us great browser games that can rival the quality of the casual mobile games that we’ve learned to love. Skate Hooligans is such an example with its short but sweet gameplay, its addicting hook with a lot of collectibles, and easy to learn controls that anyone can just pick up and play.

Image result for skate hooligans

Skate Hooligans is an endless runner that looks, plays, and feels exactly like one of the best endless runners on mobile, Subway Surfer. This time, you play as one of the many skaters in the game. The “story” (if you can even call it that) is that you’re doing graffiti (as all skaters do) and the police are onto you, so you skate your way out of it. The game is played using the keyboard’s arrow keys, with up used for jump, left and right to change lanes, and down to slide under obstacles. The main goal of the game is to get as far as you can without being hit by any obstacle on the road, which include moving cars. Along the way, you’ll be able to pick up coins which can be used to buy a ton of collectibles which include other characters, boards, and some other aesthetic stuff. You’ll also be doing missions, but they’re really simple, like get to a certain distance, or collect a certain amount of coins in a single run. As you finish more missions, more levels will become available.

Skate Hooligans may look like a Subway Surfer clone, but make no mistake. This game is a solid endless runner with great mechanics, graphics, and fair amount of stuff to collect. If you’re looking to scratch that mobile gaming itch while at a place without phones but with a computer, then Skate Hooligans is sure to help you out

SLAM DUNK BASKETBALL

Basketball is one of the most known sports in the world, and it’s one of the simplest ball games to learn. There are no bases to fill, no downs to understand, and no offsides to get confused by. It’s simple, grab the ball, run past everyone, put the ball in the hoop. Easy.

Image result for slam dunk basketball online game

Slam Dunk Basketball is an arcade game that lets you play a condensed version of basketball, like literally, all you ever need to do is throw the ball and make sure it goes through the basket, then you do it again – ad infinitum, or until you run out of time. The game is as simple as the sport it copied from, your goal is to get the highest score available before getting a game over, which happens when the timer drops to zero. The game is played entirely by using your mouse. The left mouse button is the only button you’ll ever need. Every time you click on screen, the ball will jump up a certain height and move a bit of distance – it both depends on where the mouse cursor currently is. You just have to be very precise with your clicks to make sure you sink the hole. There will also be stars that you can collect as sort of an achievement, but doesn’t really do too much. The game lacks a lot of features that could’ve made it more awesome, like buying different aesthetic stuff using the stars you pickup. In any case, your only realy goal is to beat the highest score.

Slam Dunk Basketball is as fun as any arcade basketball games, but it’s lacking a lot of features that could’ve made it better. It’s still a great game though if you can look past everything that’s not here, as it’s still fun to play and is a great game to fight over bragging rights.

MONSTERS UP

What a time to be alive! Are you playing games on your mobile phone, but can’t bring your phone to your cubicle at work? Well we’re now at the point where mobile games are also being ported online for people to play with just their browsers. You can now include Monsters Up, an arcade mobile game, to that long list of games to play when there’s nothing else to do at work.

Image result for monsters up

Monsters Up is an arcade game that relies on your ability to time each and every jump that your monster will make. It’s a game that requires you to have précising timing and reactions to whatever the game will throw your way. So you play as a little monster that wants to go up – literally. Your little monster will only stand still in the middle of the screen and can only be moved by jumping. As you play, the game will throw platforms towards the middle of the screen; you’ll have to time your jump to make your little monster land on that platform. If you get hit by the platform, it’s game over and you’ll have to try again. You’ll keep doing this and slowly, the platforms will stack up. You’ll also need to make sure that the next platforms after the first is balanced on the bottom platform – if it’s not, you’ll fall and it’s game over. After a certain number of platforms, you’ll be able to pick up a star. This star will fix up your previous platforms so it’s balanced, basically letting you start new. As  you go on, the platforms will become faster, so more of your precision will be demanded.

Monsters Up is a cute little arcade game that can take a few hours to play if you don’t watch your play time. It’s fun, easy, and gives you that “one more time” kick. If you’re looking for a nice game you can easily pick up while waiting for something, then this game is perfect.

TOP 5 IO GAMES

In the past few years, there’s been a new browser-based gaming trend coming along around the internet, and it’s slowly taking even the mobile world by storm. That’s the arena based multiplayer games called the IO games. The games within the new genre can be played and enjoyed without having invested too much time in it. It’s easy to jump in and jump out when need be. It’s always fun because you’re always playing with a lot of different people. So now the question is, how do you choose which games to play out of the hundreds available? Well, were here to help! Here’s what we think are the top 5 IO games out in the wild right now.

 

5.) Slither.io

Snake is such a classic game that it’s almost impossible to find people that doesn’t know it. It’s simple and unique, and anyone at almost any age can pick it up and play it. The premise is simple, you play as a small snake that is shown food on screen. Your goal is to grab as much food as you can, but there’s a catch. Each piece of food will make your snake longer and a bit harder to control. The game ends when you accidentally hit a part of your body. Easy, right? Now imagine that, but this time there’s plenty of food everywhere so you can get longer and bigger easily, and this time there’re more than 10 snakes on the field at the same time. You can’t touch their or your bodies or it’ll be game over, but if they touch yours, they die instantly and turn to food – which you can then use to make yourself even bigger. That’s Slither.io. The main goal of the game is to survive and become the longest snake in the land. It’s on our list because it’s simple to learn and needs almost no introduction, as well as it’s a lot of fun of course. It inspired many other games, including Angry Snakes and Little Big Snake.

4.) Diep.io

Tanks are always awesome, but tanks in games are even more so. Diep.io explores this awesomeness by letting you play as a tank in an arena with a lot of other tanks trying to destroy each other. When you start a game, you’re thrown directly in the middle of the game and you’ll see a bunch of shapes lying around. These things will need to be destroyed so you can get all the goodies inside, which is the experience you’ll need to become a stronger tank. Each time you level up, you’ll get a skill point that you can put into one of your skills on the lower left of the screen. You’ll use your mouse cursor to aim and the left mouse button to shoot, while W,A, S, and D are your movement keys. You’ll fight to become the strongest tank around – that’s your one and only goal! The game made our list because of its great design, complex enough for veterans to have fun but easy enough for new comers to learn.

3.) Agar.io

The mother of all the IO games, Agar.io is where it all started. This is the game that gave birth to a whole new genre, and it’s not without its reasons. The game is simply amazing. You start off as a little ball and you have a few abilities, but the main one you’ll be using is eating any ball that’s smaller than you to make you bigger. This means, you eat small balls, get big, eat the other balls that were ones you considered big before, but are now smaller than you, rinse and repeat. You move your ball using your mouse cursor – basically wherever your cursor is, your ball will follow. You’ll also have another useful skill, and that’s throwing half of your total amount in size as another ball and shooting it forward by pressing the W key. This helps as both an offensive and defensive move. If you can’t chase the ball in front of you because you’re bigger and slower, but you think half of you can gobble it up, then throw half of yourself forward to eat the other ball – it’s a satisfying move to use. If you’re in a bind and are about to be caught by a bigger player, use it to get a half of you out of harm’s way, so if the other half gets eaten, you’d still have another. This game innovated a lot of the io games we see today, and it’s fun because of a lot of reasons, but mostly because you play with other people in a match to become the because ball around town.

2.) MooMoo.io

RTS games are time consuming, but it’s almost always fun. Now how about we add a little dash of io simplicity to the mix? Well, we get MooMoo.io. The game plays like your typical RTs, you collect materials to build buildings and defences, and you keep doing that until you’re at the top of the food chain. You start off as a measly peasant with an axe and you’ll need to collect resources to amass a fortune. You’ll do this by swinging your axe (space bar or left mouse button) on anything you might need. If you need lumber, swing it on trees. Need rocks? Boulders are your targets. Food can be gathered from apple trees. You can find the stuff you can build at the bottom of the screen and if you hover over, you’ll see what you need to build them. Once you have enough resources, just click it, then click on the area you’d like to place it. To win, you’ll have to amass gold, which can be harvested by one of the buildings available. But to defend it, you can build a wall they’ll have to break to get in, as well as spikes that they won’t be able to break without getting hurt. The game is in a good spot in our list as it takes a great genre that takes time and effort to learn, and simplifies it with the great io formula of arena based multiplayer gameplay.

1.) Bonk.io

On the top of our list is one of the funnest io games out there, Bonk.io. This game is wild as it’s just a collection of party games that you can play with a few random strangers, and it’ll keep going until you decide to stop. The goal of the game is to be on top with the most wins in the quick but wacky series of mini-games you’re about to play. When you start a game, you’ll be matched up with up to 4 players, and you’ll play a lot of games, each lasting around 30 seconds or less. Each game will have a different set of rules, but it’s always the same goal, push all of the other players to their death, and remain the last ball standing. You’ll use your keyboard to play by pressing the arrow keys to move your ball in the respective direction pressed, while the space bar or X key will make your ball heavier (can be used for a tactical advantage). The awesomeness of this game lies in the fact that you don’t spend a lot of time on each game, giving you no time to get bored of it. Once a game ends, you’re immediately thrown to the next one to duke it out again. It’s on the top of our list due to the sheer amount of fun it gives out. This game can simply sap hours of your life without you even noticing.

This list is not to say that the other io games are bad, but this is just what we though you should start with to get the most fun out of the genre. There are plenty of io games available, and we believe that each of them has their own quirks and uniqueness to justify a try. All of the games in this genre are simple to learn, hard to master, but easy to gain fun from. If you believe there are other games we should try out, leave a comment and let us know

GET IN SHAPE

There are some games out there that wants you to just have fun, while there are some games that’ll test your skill, then there’s Get in Shape. This game will try to give you fun, but it’s mostly going to test your eye-hand coordination skill and a lot (a whole LOT) of your patience.

Get in Shape is a game that challenges you to multitask. This game will ask you to juggle a few games simultaneously while making sure that you don’t die in all of them. The game will start you off easy with just one game showing you a simple animation, as well as a button. You’ll need to press the button specified on each game to interact with that game. The interaction is simple, like the block your controlling will jump at the press of a button, or a holding the button makes you move or dodge. There’s a lot that can be done with a single button press, but that’s not the main focus of this game. As you get used to the first game you’re given, you’ll be introduced to another one suddenly, so make sure to be prepared for it. Once the first game is given to you, you’ll have 30 seconds to try and survive before another one is introduced. Your main goal is to maintain and survive through all the games (this will depend on the difficulty you select at the start of the game). For example, one difficulty will need you to survive 5 games for 30 seconds to win. As long as you haven’t reached that goal, the game will keep going unless you don’t survive on the last game remaining.

Get in Shape is a very hard game, and finishing even just the normal difficulty took us a little while to do, but it’s super fun for those looking for a challenge. If you’d like to play a game where your skills are put to the test, then you’ve come to the right place.

Of a Feather

Everyone knows that saying – “birds of a feather flock together”. It’s pretty simple: the same group of people or animals will always stay together and mingle together. But how about we get a little simpler than that? In this game, it’s literal. You’re a bunch of birds, and you’ll be flocking and flying together.

Of a Feather is kind of an action platformer, but plays vertically instead of your regular horizontal platforming. It’s like a game of doodle jump, except this game isn’t as fast paced because you’ll need precision and quick thinking. The game is played entirely using your keyboard. You’ll press W or the up arrow key to flap your wings and fly up a certain amount (it’s not much, but it’s a tactical thing). The A and D keys (or the left and right arrow keys) will make you move left or right. This can be combined with your flap key to fly in a certain direction. As you go up, you’ll see other birds standing in some platforms. Your goal is to get a certain number of birds to come with you until the end of each level. A level ends after a certain height. You’ll need to get to that height with the number of birds indicated on the top right of the screen. Once you get there, you’ll again start with 0 birds. The number of birds you’ll need to be with you will increase, so it will be time to step up your game.

Of a Feather is a fun little game that needs patience and skill. The slow pace is an indicator of a game needing precision and good timing to complete. If you’re on the market for a game that gets increasingly hard while still maintaining its cuteness, then go for Of a Feather. It’s a great choice and one you won’t regret.

Return Man

American Football fans rejoice! We’ve got a game just for you, and we know you’re gonna love it. What’s not to love about a sports game filled with action? Return Man is the first game in a long series of well loved football games, and is a gateway to the one of the greatest football simulators out in the web.

Image result for return man online

Return Man is a sports action game that lets you play as the catcher of the punt kick, and your goal is to get to the end of the field to get a touchdown. You’ll be given 3 chances to do so. Each time you get tackled and stopped, you’ll lose a chance. Each possession is basically a life, so keep in mind that you shouldn’t waste a single one. The controls are kind of weird, but for movement, you’ll be using the I key to move forward, and the J and L keys to move left and right respectively. The A, S, and D keys are used for special moves (that you’ll get later in the game). The space bar is a shortcut for continue (since it’d be a hassle to keep going back to your mouse to click on continue), and the M key mutes the game’s sound. The game will start once your character catches the punt, and you’ll be able to take control of the catcher. You’ll have to keep running until the end, and it’s not going to be easy with all the other players set up to tackle you, but it’s not a really unfair match. You’ll have 3 blockers set up to keep you safe, so make sure to use them wisely. Once you get to the end, you’ll be given a congratulations screen and move on to the next level. Rinse and repeat.

Although it might not sound too exciting of a game, Return Man pumps up your adrenaline once you start playing. We’ve played this game for an hour without getting tired of it, so that’s a good indication of how good this game is, especially for sports fans! If you love football, then dive in and play Return Man.

Caveman Adventure

Cavemen, as we know them, were the people with a very simple mindset – “I’m hunger, I’ll eat”. That was it. A caveman does what he wants, and he’ll go wherever he wants to. Nothing can stop him in his tracks. But this caveman in this particular game looks like he needs a helping hand – that’s where you come in! Go through plenty of levels that’ll test your quick wit, reflexes, and good planning – none of which an ordinary caveman would probably have!

Image result for Caveman adventure

Caveman adventure is a puzzle  platform game that lets you play as some kind of entity that helps out a caveman in his little adventure through the prehistoric era. You’ll be playing the entire game by just using your mouse. You’ll be going through a very thorough tutorial, so you’ll learn the ropes pretty quickly, but to give you an idea of how it plays, the caveman will start walking when you click on him. He’ll walk from a starting point and will keep walking forward. Your job is to make sure he gets to the cave at the end of each level by guiding him. You’ll have a limited number of items that’ll make him do an action – the action will depend on the item. For example, you can place a meat in one area, and when the caveman hits the meat, he’ll turn around and start walking in that direction. You’ll also get a jalapeno that’ll make him jump across gaps, as well as jump to avoid obstacles. Your quick thinking skills will be tested in this game, as well as reflexes (once you get to the later levels). Planning is also a huge part of the game. There’re 3 stars per level that you can collect – you can skip them and just head to the cave, but where’s the challenge in that? It can become a bit frustrating later on, but it’s still doable and still pretty awesome.

Caveman Adventure is a very good puzzle/platform game that can hook you for hours. Each level is short and sweet, but each one has its own personality and a good level of challenge. If you’re looking for a game that’ll keep your mind racing and thinking, you just found the game for you!

Zombie Incursion

It’s a normal day, not unlike any other, and you were peacefully sleeping on your countryside house’s porch. If you play a lot of zombie games, then you know this doesn’t end well. You’re rudely woken up by the sudden zombie infestation. Well, no choice left but to survive right? So pick up your guns and melee weapons as you try to go through wave after wave of zombies in Zombie Incursion.

Image result for zombie incursion

Zombie Incursion is an action game filled with chainsaws, guns, and zombies. You’ll play as a guy who wants nothing more than to survive this apocalypse. You start off by being placed in the middle of each level you’ll play. It plays out mostly like a tower defence game where zombies will come out from the right side of the screen trying to get to the other side. Your job is to make sure they don’t get there. You’ll move around the area using the W, A, S, and D keys. You’ll attack using the left mouse button. Your attack changes as you change weapons, but you’ll start off with a chainsaw – which is alright and fun to use. Each zombie killed will award you with gold, which you’ll then use to buy upgrades for your current weapons, buy new weapons, or buy armor. You’ll also have a health bar that’ll go down if you stay directly in front of a zombie for too long without killing it, so make sure to either stay away or kill them quickly. There will be different types of zombies as you go through the game, most of them requiring more shots than a regular zombie so be careful. Also, there’ll be occasional boss fights, so watch out for those too, and always make sure you’re prepared.

Zombie Incursion is one of the funnest zombie apocalypse games I’ve every played, and it had me hooked for a couple of hours. If you want to play a game that’s fun and filled with action (as well as a nice game time since upgrading everything is pretty fun), then Zombie Incursion is definitely the game you’d want to play.
