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.

…Don’t Look Back is an artsy game?

Don't Look Back

Don’t Look Back is a surprisingly fun game that’s as much art and story telling as it is gameplay.

The controls and the visuals are simple, but each ‘level’ has its own feel, so you’ll need to learn as you go and adapt to the world around you.

Just remember, don’t look back.

…It’s TGI Friday: Mirror’s Edge 2D?

Mirror's Edge 2D

Considering some of the reviews I’ve read of Mirror’s Edge (See Yahtzee’s Zero Punctuation Review for an example) Mirror’s Edge 2D might just be the first advergame that’s better than the original!

Mirror’s Edge 2D was developed by Borne Games (the same folks that created the Fancy Pants Adventure series) and it borrows and updates heavily from the already fantastic controls to create a fluid experience that will have you running up walls, sliding under bars, and jumping across chasms in no time.

It’s also a very open game, with lots of room to explore, and you can earn achievements along the way that will help you rank on the global leaderboards that they keep updated with the top scores.

…It’s TGI Friday: I Fell In Love With The Majesty Of Colors?

The Majesty Of Colors

I Fell In Love With The Majesty Of Colors is a rather unique game from Gregory Weir that lets you choose between five different endings depending on what actions (or inactions) you take during the course of the game.

The controls are incredibly simple, but the point is to follow along with the story and change the outcome of what happens, not to necessarily ‘beat’ the game, so the controls are perfect for interacting with your environment and letting you enjoy each part of the story.

If you’ve got a few spare minutes, then use them to play with The Majesty and see what you can discover.

…It’s TGI Friday: 99 Bricks?

99 Bricks

I got 99 problems but a brick ain’t one.

99 Bricks is like an anti-Tetris. The goal is to use 99 bricks to create a tower that is as tall as you can make it, but in 99 Bricks, and unlike in Tetris, the blogs have a bit of give to them.

The result is that as the tower gets taller, it starts to sway and wobble under its own weight, and one misplaced brick can bring the whole thing crashing to the ground.

The controls are simple, the graphics are simply perfect, and the concept is easy to understand, but difficult to master, so it’s the perfect weekend time waster.

Be prepared though, because this one’s addicting.
