The game jam is an awesome place to find budding developers and see their wild minds come to life in the games they make. Here’s one with a concept that isn’t really original, but has been polished and is created with such love that it’s impossible not to love it.
Grand Theft Pizza is just a simple action / shooter game that lets you play as a guy who goes wild and shoots everyone in sight. The game doesn’t really have too much of the pizza, but is heavy on the action. You’ll start off in a room with nothing much but your guns and the shirt on your back. You’re inside some building and your goal is get to the last room with the boss. Each room will be filled with enemies although some rooms will have health pickups to help you out. You move around using the W, A, S, and D keys and use the mouse cursor to aim your weapon. The left mouse button is used to shoot your gun. Many rooms will have windows, and these windows can be used to shoot enemies within that room. You’ll use not only your gunning and dodging skills, but also your cunning in making sure you reach the end.
The game is really short, but that’s because the game is actually incomplete, but judging from what we’ve played, this game is going the right direction. It’s a great game already with awesome music, smooth controls, and gameplay that’ll keep you pumped.
Grand Theft Pizza is a game that’ll keep you playing despite it being in German (not that bad even if you don’t understand it, the game is so simple you’ll still know how to play) and it being too short. If you want an action game pumped with adrenaline, give Grand Theft Pizza a go!
Magnets are always fun to play with no matter what age you are. It’s kind of nice to get a game about magnets that’ll keep you challenged while giving you the fun you know and love with magnets! Magnetized will keep you frustrated and wanting to play even more!
Magnetized is a fun little game that lets you control a bunch of magnets to help a little dot get from point A to point B. The dot will always go forward in a straight line and it’s your job to make sure that it doesn’t hit any walls along the way. There will be magnets placed on the walls that you’ll be controlling to make sure the dot stays on its path. Whenever a dot is near a magnet, that magnet will activate and will light up. When a magnet is active, using the left mouse button will pull the dot over to you. You’ll have to get a bit of a feel for it because it will also use the dot’s momentum and angular movement when you pull, so you’ll have to consider how hard the dot will turn a corner. The game is pretty simple, really, especially because you only ever use one button, and that’s the left mouse button. When you click the left mouse button, a line will form between the active magnet and the dot, signifying a pull. The dot will then move accordingly. This is all you’ll need to know. As the game progresses, you’ll be met with a lot of different challenges and the difficulty will go up. It’s pretty fun for the first few levels but can become hair-pullingly frustrating a few levels on, but the feeling of finishing those hard levels are so rewarding that you’ll keep coming back for more.
Magnetized is a great puzzle type game that’ll keep make you want to keep playing. The challenge is good and it’s easy to learn. If you need a game that’ll keep you thinking (or frustrated, whichever comes first), then go for Magnetized.
Tetris lovers everywhere, rejoice! One of the best blocks building games just hit the building and it’s everything that you love about the game. It’s complex, it’s fast-paced, and it’s brain wracking. Let Build take you to the new 3D world of Tetris.
Build is a block puzzle game that gives you the classic game, Tetris, in a whole new light. The game has the same principles as Tetris, but in Build, you don’t have walls, and it’s one of the main features of the game. You still stack blocks on top of each other as efficiently and save as much space as you can, but Build uses real physics, and this is where the “no walls” feature comes in to play. If any one of your blocks falls off the edge, it’s game over and you have to start again. The goal is to build the highest building you can without dropping a single block out of the playing field. You’ll get the familiar blocks like the L block, the T block, the square block, and the line block. You’re also given a time limit for each set of blocks you’re given. If you don’t place all the blocks within that time, it’s also game over.
The game is controlled by your mouse. Every time you start a game of set of blocks, you hover your cursor over the block you want to use, click and hold it, and drag the block to the spot you want to place it in (you can drop or place it, whatever you need to do to stack them as high as you can). Placing a block will follow the rules of gravity, so be careful and be smart in placing your blocks.
Build is a very smart game and what we think is an intelligent step forward for Tetris. It has very good integration of physics, and it has powerups. If you love Tetris and want to take your game to the next level, then build is the game for you!
Before starting this game, make sure you take a good, comfortable seat to sit on, and check the time, make sure you have plenty of time to waste because Cookie Connect will make time pass without you even noticing!
Cookie Connect is a Match 3 game that is mostly like the very famous Candy Crush, except instead of candies, you play with cookies, and the mechanic of switching candies is a bit different, as in this game, the main mechanic is dragging a line over 3 or more of the same cookies to remove them from the playing field. Each level will give you a different set of cookies and some different design that may or may not hinder you from creating the perfect combos (as some will add in obstacles and some will open up a few blocks). If you connect more than 6 cookies in one combo, you will get a special cookie with special effects. You are given a limited number of moves so you better keep an eye on that. The goal of most of the levels is to fill the cookie meter on the left. You can do this by removing cookies on the field. Some levels will have 1 (or more) people on top of the screen looking for a specific cookie and a number of it. Removing the number (or more) of that specific cookie from the field will finish the level. Every time you finish a level, you are sent to the world map to choose the next level, or play the older levels to get all the stars on each level (all stars are received if you fill the meter all the way). When you finish a level with some moves remaining, each move will result in a Rainbow Fever, where a cookie rainbow is thrown in the field randomly and will explode to give you more points.
Cookie Connect is a great way to waste time online, and it’s a very fun game to play, so that time isn’t really fully wasted. You can play this game for hours without even noticing, that’s just how fun this game is.
Casual games aren’t always half as bad as hardcore gamers would like to think they are. Viking: Way to Valhalla is a very good example to prove this. Not a lot of casual puzzle games can pull off the same quick adrenaline you get from casual games with the same amount of interest you get for adventure games, and this game does very well in both accounts due to its very unique gameplay style along with very good mechanics.
Viking: Way to Valhalla is a puzzle game by CrazyGames.com that mostly plays like the Candy Crush games where you line up the same type of blocks with each other and break them until all of the blocks are out (or whatever goal is given to you), but for this game, the mechanic is a little bit different. Your usual board where the blocks would be is placed at the bottom part of the screen, while the top screen shows two sides, the left side showing your Viking, and the right side showing whatever enemy you are trying to kill. The objective of the game is to break sword blocks to damage the enemies, the more blocks clumped together the higher the damage. You lose under 2 conditions, which is you either run out of number of turns, or your Viking’s HP drops down to zero. There will be a lot of additional goals and obstacles in finishing each stage as well as your Viking getting skills and weapons that alter the gameplay and time you need to beat levels, so you would always be on your toes in each level, giving the game a higher gameplay time that the usual gameplay times you get for the regular casual games.
Viking: Way to Valhalla is a very good game to play and keeps you interested for a pretty good amount of time as the adventure elements of the game keep you hooked as well as the casual elements of the game. Play this game if you haven’t yet, you’ll be surprised how 2 genres can blend into one with a very good result.
Being a miner is a very dangerous profession, but there are those that do it for a thrill in their lives, those that don’t work under anyone but themselves. You go underground, blow things up, and then get the loot. Shot Firer 2 is a game that is just about that. Collect treasures and try to stay alive in more than 30 levels of platforming madness while you collect all of the level’s jewels. Blow up soil that’s holding treasure and crawl through low ceilings and become the richest guy around!
Shot Firer 2 lets you play as a spelunker digging deep down the earth to get his hands on all the treasure that he can carry. It’s a platform game with a little bit of a puzzle element. You’ll be jumping on platforms and think of ways on how to make sure that you get every single one of the jewels on each level and how you’ll be avoiding some enemies that’ll be on some of the levels. You will be carefully using not only your reactions but also your wit.
The game is pretty simple ni terms of controls. With graphics, it looks a bit better than your normal flash game, but nothing too much to celebrate about. The game controls very well using the arrow keys and pressing the space bar to plant dynamite on wherever you need to, and using the arrow keys in conjunction to the space bar, you can plant one in any direction as long as there is soil there. Keep away from explosions, by the way, as you will surely get killed if you are too close to one.
Shot Firer 2 is a pretty good game but ca become a bit repetitive in the early levels. Once you get to the later levels, the challenge is taken up a bit, but nothing too drastic. Kids to teens will have a lot of fun with this game. If you are looking for a challenging game, this is not the game I would advise you play, but if you just want a chill game that is both cute and fun, then Shot Firer 2 is a good choice of game to play!
Penguins are just the cutest animals in the world. You can make them do anything and they’d still look so cute. In Penguin Diner, you’ll see a penguin dress up like a waiter and serve dinner to everyone. If you’ve ever played the Diner Dash games then you’ll feel right at home with Penguin Diner.
Penguin Diner is a dining simulator that puts you in the shoes (flippers) of a little penguin just out there to make a living in a world where diners can make good money. Play in an engaging story mode that spans over 20 levels that will put your speed to the test. The game plays simple but very well in terms of controls, as all you’ll ever need is your mouse and its left button. A few seconds after you start a level, a customer will walk in the front door, and you’ll have to seat that customer to any available table. Click the customer to highlight them and then click the table where you will be seating them. After they are seated, they will be ordering their food. Wait for them to call you (they will raise their hand when they are ready) and you can click them again to take their order. Once they have told you their order, you may attend to other customers as you wait for the cooks to finish making it (once they are done, they’ll place the order on the counter). Once the order is ready, click it, then bring it over to your customer. You will do this with all of your customers until they are done eating. Once they are done, they will leave a tip for you. Just click the table to clear it and pick up the tips. That table will now be ready for new customers to come in. Keep doing that until the day is over, make sure to try and reach your goals before the day ends!
Penguin Diner may be a very familiar game due to it having the likeness of Diner Dash, but in its own, unique ways, it shines a bit differently from Diner Dash, and using the cut elittle penguins as characters, this game has its own charms. If you’ve been looking for a cuter version of Diner Dash, then you just came to the right game.
Boxes has always been fun in a lot of different ways, and here at Super Boxotron 2000, boxes are made even more fun because of the addition of guns! Guns and boxes are fun individually, but together, they are a blast! I don’t know why this was never thought of before, but now that it’s here, I don’t think I can ever play a game about boxes without guns anymore.
Super Boxotron 2000 is a top view shooter that is all about you shooting boxes. Really, that’s it. You are put into the shoes of a trooper that needs to destroy boxes using the different guns in your arsenal. Once you have chosen a gun you’d like to use, you walk over to the room where all the boxes are at. Boxes will fall and each box will have a number on it, this number indicates how many times a box needs to be shot to actually destroy it. Each box may contain coins that you can use later to upgrade your weapons or buy better ones. As you go through the boxes, the game becomes harder and harder as the boxes falls faster and more frequently. If a box falls on your head, you die immediately, so you should do your best to avoid the boxes. When a box is about to fall, a little light will show on the exact position the box will fall on as an indicator, so avoid those lights to save your head. There will also be times when spikes will suddenly pop out of the floor and one touch of these spikes will instantly kill you. Whenever you die, you will be brought back to the first room and you will be given the option to buy new upgrades and guns. The shop also opens up while in the box room when you reach a certain number of boxes destroyed (buying in the box room is cheaper, so try your best to survive until the shop opens up in the box room). Shooting the boxes to clear the room is the best way to survive as you can make more room to avoid any obstacles or dropping boxes, so do your best to shoot everything in your way.
Super Boxotron 2000 is very fun and very addicting. The start of each game can be a bit boring as the boxes come in one by one, but as the game progresses, it becomes more exciting as it becomes more difficult. If you’ve been looking for a good game with guns and a simple goal (destroying boxes? Super easy), then Super Boxotron 2000 is a great game to start with, and it’s going to be hard to stop.
Agario has been a ridiculously famous game because of its addictive, competitive multiplayer aspect. The game is so easy to learn, so fun to get into, and doesn’t really need a high level of skill to actually win, just always remember to have fun. So what happens if you mix the formula that agar.io is known for with a classic game that almost everyone knows and loves? Then you have Slither.io, a combination of the horribly addictive agar.io and the simple reflex and planning game, snake. Get ready to duke it out with the whole world in a game of you versus the world in snake.
Slither.io is an online multiplayer game that makes you play as a little snake that is out for food to eat, but every time you eat food, you get longer and become a much scarier snake, out to get the bigger fish in the sea, other snakes! The goal of the game is to become the longest snake in the world by eating more and more food (represented as different stuff in the map, but mostly a dot) and snakes once you are big and long enough. Eating a snake that is shorter than you will make you grow longer than a single food can get you. There are a lot of different strategies to this game, even though it looks simple, it’s a pretty deep game. You can always eat food that doesn’t move that will make you longer pretty slowly, or you can grow a bit with foo, then start preying on the weak. The controls are so simple even kids will get it. You just use your mouse cursor to move around the screen, and your little snake will follow the cursor. Move the cursor to anything edible to your snake, and your snake eats it automatically. Are you a good enough reptile to make it to the top? Then you would probably want to try Slither.io to test out your gut feeling of greatness!
Strategy games have been dying down recently, and mostly you’ll see games that are more action or adventure oriented, so if you’re looking for a deep strategy game to fill the need for that type of game, then Dice wars would be a very good place to start.
Dice wars is a strategy oriented game filled with Dice. The game can be played with up to 8 players, each player taking turns to beat each other. The game is extremely simple, while also being extremely deep, as people would say, it’s a game that is “easy to learn, but is hard to master.” Each player gets a turn as they try to conquer a map with their dice. A player will click on one area with colored dice (the color should be the same as the player’s color), and then click a neighboring area that they want to conquer. Once both have been chosen, both areas will roll their dice, so the area with more dice has a higher chance of winning. If the attacker wins, the area will be conquered and all the dice there will become his/her dice, which can be used to attack another area, and the area used to attack will have 1 dice remaining. A player may choose to end their turn at any point during their turn, which players will do if they think that conquering more areas would be too risky (since players are left with an area with 1 dice when conquering). This goes on until one player is left with dice on the map.
Dice wars is one of the deepest war games that I have ever played, and its simplicity is such a good thing, making it easy to understand, but very hard to win. Test out your wits with Dice wars and see if you have the strategic prowess to conquer the world.
