The Halloween Hunt

Halloween Hunt has brought you back from the dead 10 years after you were murdered by your father. Have you come back for revenge? Forgiveness? To win the competition for best costume by wearing a pumpkin for a head?

A nice adventure RPG game. Whenever you get stuck, level up by going back and beating up some lower level monsters. Buy new skills, talents and magic spells. One really nice feature: you can turn up the random battle generator when you want to level up, and turn it way down when you just want to get to point B without a lot of fuss.

Some nice 'haunted' music along with final fantasy type battles make this a worthwhile game to waste some halloween time with.

1 vs 100

Do you know which of the rice krispies gang always wears a hat? Or how about the main characters name in Old Man in the Sea? What type of do is snoopy, anyways? If so, you're probably already watching 1 vs 100 on NBC. Now go play it.

No strategy will get you through the first time around, but if you keep playing the questions will repeat themselves. So work your way up to the grand prize of a million dollars.

The timer is annoying when you're trying to figure out who your father's mother's daughters son is.

Feel like getting fragged in an online first person shooter (FPS)? Then phosphur may be the game for you. Five different weapons with headshot capability should keep you occupied for a while.

Phosphur is written on SHockwave 3D, so make sure your computer can handle the drag time. Jump with the space key, move around with wasd keys. Look around and fire= with your mouse.

This is the first public beta, but multiplayer is supported. So get in there and frag someone.

Invasion of the Halloween Monsters

The Invasion of the Halloween Monsters is a nice (if corny) intro to the halloween season. Play as Dr Schwartz and help out the local kids as all of their candy has been stolen by the halloween monsters. Use your gravity gun to take out the monsters and collect the candy.

Bats, mini-monsters and zombies will come after you in wave after wave. Use your gravity gun to throw the mini-monsters in the air to kill them (and to get the **&^@*&$! bats), who are too 'quick' to hit with your gravity gun. Rip off the heads of the zombies and slam them into the ground to get rid of them. You can also pull off one of their arms to throw at the bats. Sometimes, the mini-monsters break up into smaller monsters, giving your more ammo to throw at the bats.

Once the monster dies, he may leave behind a health bottle or candy. So collect them all to move on to the next level.

Star Wars Rescue

There are three levels to Star Wars Rescue. Finish them all if you can, just so you can see the cheesy ending.

Star Wars Rescue is a side scrolling shooter, with very little to recommend it, except that its Star Wars. Avoid getting hit in level 1 and you can pass on (not a lot of points, but hey...) Level two requires some sharp shooting as you need to destroy the buzz droids attacking obi-wans ship. Level three requires avoidance of the super droids fire as you rescue Palpatine.

Switch weapons using the space bar, control your ship with the mouse and fire with the left mouse button.

Pixel Blaster

Pixel Blaster brings together all the fun things you remember about shooting games from the arcade. Blast away with your mouse at anything that moves, while racing around the battlefield (circle). Your enemies will keep coming after you in wave after wave of intense action.

Control your ship with the arrow keys or aswd keys. Use the mouse to aim and charge your laser. P to pause, space bar to brake and q for a shield.

You may end up circling around and around, but that's not a great strategy in later levels. Because every time you circle around, you'll end up with more enemies close up. Learn how to navigate successfully around the shots coming in at you (including homing missiles) and you'll be better off. Also, shots can curve away, so aim carefully.

When you get all of your enemies lined up, use the charger to blast multiple fighters at a time. The bosses take a while to take down, so be careful to conserve your energy and health for the big battles.

Jeu Chiant

Jeu Chiant (also called double jeu) is a balancing act. Keep the larger ball on the larger paddle below, while keeping the smaller ball up in the air (similar to breakout) using the smaller paddle. The object is to keep going for as long as you can.

It's very easy to send the larger ball flying off the end racing to get the smaller ball. This game, despite its simplistic nature, requires some foresight and planning to last longer than just a few seconds.

I haven't decided if it's addicting, yet. What do you think?

Rodent Tree Jump

Rodent Tree Jump has you jumping out of a tree (you are the rodent) and bouncing off a conveniently located trampoline. Set your angle and velocity to land as close to the target as you can.

You get three jumps in each attempt to come in first place for that league. Fail to come in first and you end up repeating the jump. There are six leagues to beat before you become champion.

There are three other (computer) rodents jumping with you each time. And there's nothing more frustrating than landing on the target and being bumped off it by one of them.

The different surfaces (that you land on) react differently, necessitating a change in strategy with each league. For some, you might want to set your angle higher, and for others you'll want to skip along at a lower angle.

BTW, your points depend on two things. What your average distance from the target was on the successful try to move on and how many attempts you needed to beat each league.

Sound Factory

Sound Factory lets you make music your way. Using instruments found in a tire factory, it's your self-appointed job to entertain your coworkers as they make their way through their boring day. Oh, but don't forget to fill your quota while you're at it. Unlock all the instruments and your boss won't bother you any more about that quota, either.

Your first instrument is the tires your supposed to be inflating. Over-inflate the tires, making them explode in rhythmic delight to set the base for your musical score. Some instruments are harder than others to get going.

If the boss walks through, shut down all the instruments as quickly as you can, otherwise, he'll kill all the fun (and you have to start the day over). Shut them down using their respective pictures at the bottom of the screen. It's a quick one click shut off. Getting them re-started is just as easy.

To unlock the instruments, you need to please your coworkers. It's not that hard, although the instruments where you pick the notes can be a little tricky. But, even though I have no ear for music, I was able to pass through fairly quickly. It only takes three working days to unlock all the instruments then you can make your music your way for as long as you like.

Air Monkey

Air Monkey is a one button game. Help the monkey get to the club house by jumping from line to line.

Instructions are about as easy as you can get. Use the left mouse button to release and jump to the next swinging rope. There's not much strategy to this game. Hint: Jump in the direction of more ropes. If you miss your target, you may grab another one as you fall.

This game is good for those few odd moments when you absolutely don't want to think about anything.

Find Frank a Job

While technically not a game, Find Frank a Job is amusing enough to play for a little while. Pick Frank up and drop him on the different locations, giving him a new job each time. Then, after something goes horribly wrong, save Frank and move him onto the next job.

It's basically an ad for a job placement company, but very amusing to play around with for a while.

Frank gets a job as a mechanic, scientist, bug zapper, boy scout leader, seal trainer, etc...

So get over there and Find Frank a Job.

Spectral Wizard

Spectral Wizard is the latest side scrolling adventure game from Miniclip. Re-colorize the world after your evil nephew turns everything into black and white using your spell book. Then go kick evil nephew butt.

Spectral Wizard is similar to previous adventure games from Miniclip, like David. Controls are straightforward. Use x to jump, z to hit, spacebar to 'do' things (pick up, drop, read signs, etc...). Use the left and right arrow keys to move around. Tab to get into and out of your spellbook/inventory.

You need to collect the colored spheres on each level and return them to the machine. Unfortunately, you can only pick up one sphere at a time. The spells make life easier, but take time to reload. And it takes time and experience to learn new spells (certain items need to be found, too).

Rescue Mission

Rescue Mission is a side scrolling shooting adventure. Free the hostages from the crazed military forces that have them imprisoned in tiny cages. Pick up weapon upgrades along the way to make your life easier.

Tip: Learn how to dodge effectively. When the guy with the dynamite throws a stick, it may be better to charge forward under the throw than to try to back off. Also, if you free all the hostages (stars in the upper left keep track of hown many you have freed on each level) you get a free life.

This game is similar to games like A.L.I.A.S. (ALIAS 3), so if you liked that game, you'll probably like this game, although I would have to rate ALIAS higher.

Levers poses the question of how good you are at balancing things. Keep all the objects on the hangers up out of the water for a certain amount of time by balancing them against each other.

I like the water jug. You can add or release water by holding the mouse over the lever. But otherwise, this game gets very difficult, very quickly. You have to balance the weight and the height of each object. Each time another one is added, you may need to rearrange all the objects you just balanced out.

Warning, can be addictive.

De-Animator is a nice shoot the zombie flash game. With a six shooter, defend yourself against the hordes of oncoming zombies. The best part of this is the graphics, so take a close look at the details.

It's not enough just to fire in the right direction. You need to put the pointer on your target to hit with any kind of reliability, so make sure to aim before you fire. Also, it takes an extra click to reload, so keep track of how many shots you have left, and make sure to reload before the next zombie appears.

Once you get the hang of it, you should last a while, but more and more zombies will start to appear, making it harder to take them all down before they get to you. Tip: Zombies coming up out of the ground seem to be more vulnerable to a one-shot kill.

Red is a defend your turret game. But instead of blowing up the targets, you need to deflect them away from your gun. Keep an eye on your ammo level and your bonus turrets. Plenty of bonuses float around so take aim and make your job easier.

You can pick up a shield, extra turrets, bigger shots, etc... through bonuses that float around. You don't need to knock the balls (meteorites?) off the field of play, they just need to miss you. Also, you won't run out of ammo, but when the ammo gets to the bottom, your rate of fire will slow.

Keyway is a simple puzzle game. Simply hit the right key when it's highlighted and you can continue. Make too many mistakes and the games over.

These seemingly simple games are always the most frustrating and most addictive. All you have to do is hit one of the arrow keys or the space bar when the symbol is active. But it's very easy to get yourself into a pattern, leading you to hit the wrong key.

You have 100 seconds to complete all 20 sequences. You get 10 seconds back for every level you complete, 5 second penalty for every mistake you make.

Armor Heroes 2

Take your paladin, jester and drow on a multi-level side scrolling adventure. Use each character to his best ability, otherwise you won't last long.

For a side scrolling fighter, this game brings some nice complexity to an old genre. Each hero you control has their own weaknesses and strengths (paladin is good against the undead, but the drow is best against riders, and the jester is best against armored enemies).

In between levels, you can advance your characters based on how much money you collect on each level. So pick up the extra cash as you go along. You're going to need it to keep going.

Tips and other helpful hints: The paladins special attack is actually a healing spell for himself. Also, being on a horse or dinosaur isn't always helpful. I actually preferred being on foot most of the time.
