…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.

…It’s TGI Friday: Hanna In A Choppa?

Hanna In A Choppa

Hanna In A Choppa is a simple yet fun helicopter game where you must fly your choppa around and land near the flag using only your keyboard.

The controls are simple, the orange on black design is fantastic, the level designs are varied and imaginative and the developer threw in a few inside jokes to keep things interesting. (Wait till you get to level 21!)

What more could you want from an after Thanksgiving time waster?

…It’s TGI Friday: Minesweeper Flash?

Minesweeper Flash

Happy Halloween everybody! Since Trick-Or-Treating isn’t for everyone, here’s a great game to play this weekend: Minesweeper Flash.

Minesweeper is the default time waster for anyone with a Windows computer and a few hours to kill, but with the addition of Flash, it’s a whole new game.

Thankfully, the gameplay itself is still the same, since it’s a classic for a reason, but with all new visuals, and as close to a storyline as Minesweeper is ever going to get (Edit: Actually, I take that back. THIS is the closest that Minesweeper is ever going to get to a storyline.), Minesweeper Flash gives the old dog new tricks, and you’ll be playing like a 16-year-old front desk clerk again in no time.

…It’s TGI Friday: Music Catch?

Music Catch

Music Catch is an interesting game that takes the music visualization concept and lets you play with the results.

Different colored shapes are worth different amounts of points, and the goal is to catch as many yellow shapes as possible without touching the red shapes as they appear in time with the music (the purple shapes count as bonuses if you can catch those as well).

It’s definitely not a complicated game, but the music makes it almost like a meditation, so it’s a nice time waster if you’re looking for a few minutes of break. (Plus it kind of makes you feel like you’re getting to play around in the Bellagio lake!)
