…Bowser’s minions are not happy?

Bowser\'s Minions

Any Super Mario fan will definitely appreciate the humor in Bowser’s Minions.

For me, the sounds and the long lost characters brought back flashbacks of childhood gaming, and I loved the idea of Mario’s enemies grouping together and revolting against the restrictions placed upon them by Bowser/Nintendo to keep the game playable.

Definitely another CollegeHumor classic.

…It’s TGI Friday: Defender Of The Favicon?

Defender Of The Favicon

Defender Of The Favicon is definitely the smallest game ever featured on DYH.

Designed as a test to see how far you can push the concept of a generated favicon, the idea was to pack a retro shooter into 16×16 pixels using JavaScript, Canvas and Data: URIs

From start to finish, the game took just three nights to complete.

To get everything working: Each frame is generated on the fly in JavaScript into a 16×16 canvas element, then converted to a 32bits PNG images and used in place of the Favicon.

    The game logic isn’t really complex but remains true to the original Defender and provides enough action for 16×16 pixels. The original game mechanics would make Defender of the favicon insanely difficult. Therefore a few adjustments were done : none of the enemies fire at you, your Defender got upgraded with a shield, and finally the Landers do not mutate into unstoppable war machines after abducting a humanoid but wander in your general direction.

…It’s TGI Friday: Square Meal?

Square Meal

Square Meal is another fantastic game from Nitrome that puts you in charge of a troll as you clear each level of enemies to escape the dungeon!!

To defeat enemies, you must eat them, but before you can eat them, you need to stun them by hitting them with blocks that you spit at them.

As is to be expected, not all blocks behave the same, and some enemies will charge or even block your blocks, and the dungeons are often booby-trapped or “slippy”, so you need to watch your step.

Are you ready for a square meal?

…It’s TGI Friday: Skywire 2?

Skywire 2

Skywire 2 is an interesting pixel art style game that puts you in charge of a gondola/cable car full of people that you must assist through a world of enemies to deliver the passengers to the end goal without letting too many fall out.

It’s actually pretty difficult considering the face that you only need two buttons to control the cable car, and the graphics are fantastic in their simplicity, so give it a go and see what you think.

…It’s TGI Friday: Ownage Burst?

Ownage Burst

On the one hand, it’s too bad Ownage Burst is only a single level demo, because the game is awesome! On the other, it’s good that it’s only a single level demo, because the game is awesome, and there’s more to come!

    Kill hundreds of enemies in this senseless action flash game. Avoid mortal shots while headshooting random baddies and then roll for cover with the lateral jump, or throw grenades to see them blown to pieces.

With classic side scrolling action, simple controls, unlimited ammo, and a seemingly endless supply of “baddies”, this game definitely has some potential.
