You know how tried and tested formulas for games can work if your sprinkle a little something new in between? Well, welcome to Mine of Sight, a kind of Minesweeper (kind of impossible for anyone not to know this game, but if you don’t you should check out this game anyway) clone that puts a twist to the old formula, giving this game a very fresh feel.
Mine of Sight is a puzzle game that takes the Minesweeper game and its mechanics, then adds a little twist to it to create something new and a bit more challenging. The game is played by just using your mouse. You use the mouse cursor to point at any square within the playing field, then use the left mouse button to open that box and find out if that box is a mine or not, or use the right mouse button to put in a flag, depicting that you have guessed that the box may contain a mine. If a box is opened and it turns out to be a mine, it’s game over. The game does not leave you in the dark to guess where the mine is, though, as it will give you one clue as to what boxes may have a mine, and it is your job to find out. So the playing field will have numbers in them and those numbers will always be next to a box, with a maximum of 4 boxes adjacent to it (that’s one of each of the cardinal directions). The number will tell you how many mines are there within the boxes that are adjacent to it. There will also be numbers with a little eye directly on top of them, this denotes that there are bombs in all four directions from that number – basically any box that the number can see is a potential bomb. You will use this information to make sure you open the correct boxes throughout the game. It may sound a little complicated, but you’ll quickly get it once you play the game as the game will guide you until you feel good enough to take challenges on your own. This is a game where you’ll never have to guess!
The .io games have been booming for a while now, and here’s another addition to the series. The .io games have been spreading like wildfire these past few months starting from the Agar.io game that was just a simple multiplayer game, and now we have a lot of different variations, including the recently discussed Slither.io. This one though is a new idea that is the same game as the older ones, but with a whole new concept, and that concept is the ability to attack other players from far away. Get ready to dodge and fire in Diep.io.
Diep.io is pretty much the same game as its predecessors. This game is a multiplayer game that is all about taking out everyone in the game and coming out on top, just this time, there’s a different means to doing it instead of just being bigger and eating up the smaller ones. Diep.io now lets you play as a little circle with tank like abilities. So control-wise, the game controls the same as the older games, where your little circle will follow your mouse cursor on the screen. This time, you can also click on the left mouse button to fire a bullet to where your cursor is pointing. Instead of growing bigger when you eat up smaller circles, you grow bigger (and get better weapons) when you destroy other smaller ones. There will be a lot of circles that are not player controlled, so it would be a good idea to start with those to make yourself a bit bigger before facing off with larger enemies. Always remember to dodge and avoid larger enemies before you get larger yourself, as you only get one life. If your tank is destroyed, it’s game over, and you start over from scratch, so be extra careful.
If you’ve been out and about looking for a multiplayer game with deep action and unforgiving gameplay, then Diep.io is a great choice and will keep you busy for hours on end due to its difficulty and fun factor.
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!
Bomber man has been part of a lot of peoples’ childhoods, and it’s not surprising that someone will make a game based on Bomber man. So why is Bomber Arena any different from the hundreds of games that tried to copy the great Bomber man? Well, it’s a multiplayer game where you can play with people all across the globe! That should be enough for Bomber Arena to be one of the top picks for those wanting a little nostalgia trip with a twist.
Bomber Arena is a multiplayer action game based on the Bomber man game, so people who already played Bomber man will be very familiar to Bomb Arena and its gameplay. The game is simple. Plant a bomb, wait for it to explode and destroy or kill something, wash, rinse, and repeat. Unlike Bomber man, though, this game is not centered on killing AI that just walks stupidly around; this game lets you bomb other people for fun! The controls are the arrow keys to move your character around, and pressing the space bar will drop a bomb on your current location. Once a bomb is set, I highly advise that you run away because your bomb can not only kill your opponents and destroy bricks, but can also kill you. Once a bomb explodes, it will let out a cross shaped explosion that will destroy any breakable walls and kill anyone in its path, so make sure to move away when you plant one. Bombs cannot be walked over, so trapping enemies between a bomb and a wall is the best strategy for this game, but make sure that you also don’t trap yourself in the process!
Bomber Arena has been one heck of a ride, and is still is. Playing Bomber Arena can be a bit addicting due to the multiplayer and competitive aspect of it, while also being a little piece of nostalgia with a multiplayer twist. If you miss playing Bomber man but want to play with people instead of AI, Bomber Arena would be a perfect game for you!
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.
