…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: Gang Garrison 2?

Gang Garrison 2

Gang Garrison 2 is a ‘bootleg demake’ of Team Fortress 2, and includes all nine classes, many different TF2-inspired environments, and fast-paced, team-based multiplayer gameplay in a unique and stylish 8-bit style.

Can the best multiplayer around be improved by demaking the graphics and bringing it all back to the core?

There’s only one way to find out…

…I Wish I Were The Moon?

I Wish I Were The Moon

If you enjoyed Majesty of Colors, then I Wish I Were The Moon should be right up your alley.

The goal of the ‘game’ is to find all eight possible endings for the strange love triangle (and one ‘secret’ ending) by taking a snapshot of something and then moving it around on the screen.

The graphics and sounds are rather simple (though soothing) and the goal is more about discovery than ‘beating’ the game, so if you enjoy a game that is as much art as it is game, then see if you can solve this puzzle.

…The Whip will redefine showboarding?

The Whip

When Cheetah Ultra Sports set out to build a new snowboard, they weren’t worried about lifestyles, cultures or snazzy graphics. Their goal was entirely technical: To design and build a better snowboard without rules or limitations of any kind.

Four years later, and after countless hours of research and development, they think they’ve reached that goal with The Whip FR-117, aka The Lamborghini of Snowboards.

According to Cheetah, The Whip will:

  • Fit better.
  • Feel lighter.
  • Go faster.
  • Cruise smoother.
  • Turn quicker.
  • Edge harder.
  • Carve sharper.
  • Jump higher.
  • Land softer.

And it will do all that without chatter, and without heel or toe drag. They’re even claiming that most experienced riders will have to relax their riding style just to get greater performance out of the board, because it’s so easy to ride.

The key to The Whip’s performance is an open V hull that is specifically designed for speed and maneuverability. They board is made out of wood, plastic, steel edges and carbon composite, and by reducing the amount of board that comes in contact with the snow, this smaller surface creates less drag, which translates into more gliding speed, better maneuverability, quicker edge-to-edge transitions, and more.

For now, The Whip is being hand made in very limited production, and each board is carefully hand crafted and will include an individual serial number, so if you want one, get your name on the waiting list and put down $1899 for a pre-order, and you’ll be killing the slopes in no time.

…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.
