Wonderputt Is Awesome Adventure Golf

Wonderputt

Wonderputt is adventure golf, “but with cows, toads, ski slopes, torpedos and a sprinkle of alien abduction for good measure.”

The result is a surprisingly entertaining game that’s easy to play, but hard to master.

My first trip through the course, I managed to shoot 27 under par, scoring 81,528 points and ranking a Colourful Relaxed Eagle.

See if you can beat that!

The Crystal Mask of Wisdom

TinyHack

The Crystal Mask of Wisdom by Rob Beschizza is an entire video game that fits in an 8×8 pixel box (that’s smaller than a favicon!).

The empire of halxe is in despair and dragons scour the land. Search for the Sword of Maguss in the forest of foiwn. Locate the Shield of Doom in the tomb of peuxbe. Collect the 16 rings of power and find the key of souls to unlock the secret of the pinnacle of pain, where the evil Tharg gathers forces for the final attack.

It’s a must play, if for no other reason than to be impressed by how much gameplay they were able to cram into such a tiny space.

…Tremors has been turned into an 8-bit video game?

Tremerz

There’s not much to it, but if you loved the Tremors movies as much as I did, then you’ll love playing as 8-bit versions of the characters (including Kevin Bacon) in the Tremerz game.

…SteamBirds is a must play dogfighting game?

SteamBirds

SteamBirds is an awesome top-down, turn-based aerial dogfighting game. The graphics are unique, the gameplay is fun, and I’m sure it’ll be an iGame before long, so play it now while you can still claim to be a trend setter!

…It’s TGI Friday: Cyclomaniacs?

Cyclomaniacs

Cyclomaniacs is a game that you simply must play.

The controls are simple, the levels are endless, there’s a fantastic achievement system that allows you to unlock a ton of characters and extras, and it’s just a blast to play.

Say goodbye to your weekend.
