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.

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.

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 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.

FLIPMASTER

Trampolines are always fun no matter what age you are. The feeling of staying up in the air and getting higher and higher as you go along is pretty exhilarating and will always make you want to have more. You don’t need a degree in rocket science or be an astronaut to fly high and have that feeling of being free from the pulls of gravity. If you don’t have one, well here’s your chance to find out how the physics work while having a bit of fun getting the highest score.

Flipmaster is a trampoline jumping simulator that lets you play as a random guy having fun on the trampoline and doing stunts. That’s how simple the game is. You just jump around, do stunts, gain points, earn coins, and have fun. It’s a pretty easy game to learn and the game actually starts you off with a very complete tutorial that’ll teach you how to do the stunts and what not to do so you can continue playing. Basically, the goal is to keep jumping without landing on your tummy or head on the trampoline. As long as you’re landing on your feet or back, you’ll jump up and will be given the chance to do a stunt. You do stunts by clicking and holding the left mouse button while in the air. Once you start pressing, your player will tuck himself in and do a forward roll. You’ll have to make sure to time your roll and judge whether you’ll fall flat on your face or on your back or feet. As you do more stunts, you’ll gain more and more points. There’ll also be floating coins that you can grab so you can buy aesthetic upgrades like new stadium and stuff. It’s optional, but it’s cool and easy to get so why not?

Flipmaster gives a warning to not re-enact whatever happens in the game, which is nice since most of the players of this game will be kids and might try it out. That’s going the extra mile. This game is very simple, easy to learn, and very fun. If you’re looking for a game to play on your commute or if you’re bored, then you came to the right place.
