Flash Games

In my thrice-weekly-blogging quest, I’m going to try to use Fridays as “link day”. For the first Greg The Aggregator day, I’m going to link to some of my favourite flash-based games.

Of course, there’s the stupidly-simple Line Rider. The deal is simple: draw lines and a little guy on a sled rides down them. You wouldn’t think that would be so addictive, but I distinctly remember spending an entire Friday afternoon in the CSSS common room with Jen trying to make him do loops, flips, etc.

I have recently been addicted to Filler, which doesn’t seem to be working for me right at the moment, but will likely be back soon. There are some little balls bouncing around: avoid those. You place bigger circles around the grid until you’ve filled up 2/3 of the board.

Shuffle isn’t much more than a flash version of marbles, but fun.

Finally, Zwingo is another marble-like game. Your job is to guard the big marble in the centre with the marble-on-an-elastic that you control.

Okay, none of those sound like much fun, but go play them and find out. Oddly, all of the games I’ve listed here have at least a little physics involved. I guess we’ve figured out what I like in a simple flash game.
