Gravity Pods

Gravity PodsGravity Pods is a puzzle game in which you're job is to shoot the target. And while the first couple dozen of levels are fairly straightforward and easy, the remaining ones are tough.

I don't really understand why this one is so popular. I've seen it all over the place and it keeps getting linked to. But I just don't see why. It quickly becomes guess the right angle to shoot at and there's no real puzzle to it. It also takes way to long to become a challenge.

But, perhaps you're like the others who have linked to it and like this sort of game. If so, play Gravity Pods at wickedpissahgames (maybe it's the name of the site that makes it so much fun for people?)

The Last Stand

The Last StandThe Last Stand is a zombie killing game. Last the night and you can go in search of new weapons and allies during the day. Spend your time wisely, or you may be overrun when the zombies come back.

You can move around inside your barricade, aim (head shots work well) and shoot your weapon. Once they get close enough, you should use the chainsaw.

Spend more time looking for survivors at first (8-4 survivors to weapons). Then switch the amount. Otherwise you won't get past day 2. Try not to aim for the chest when taking down zombies. That does the least damage. The closer they get, the better your aim, but it's not worth the wait. Even if you don't get a weapon when searching, the time still counts.

I played this game a while ago, but was amazed to see I never did a review of it. So here you go. Play the Last Stand at kongregate.

Tower Tactics

Tower TacticsTower tactics is a rpg from armorgames and it is a great effort. Lead your men into battle, using your skills to tip the balance in your favor. In between battles, learn new skills and equip them. Hire new soldiers to replace those you lose. The more battles you win, the higher your reputation gets and the more soldiers you can hire.

All in all, it's a fun game. Visually intense, with great music. But there are some flaws. Using your skills in battle is hard. First you have to pick out your soldier from out of the crowd, then get him to use his skill. Then you have to move on to the next soldier, get him to move or fight or use a skill, then the next one and so forth.

You can mass move your men or attack a single enemy soldier en masse, but that doesn't help you use your skills. You can mass select the group, then pick out the guy you are interested in, then select the skill you want to use. It just isn't easy. Since you spend so much time learning new skills in between battles, you're going to want to employ those skills.

Also, the game is a little too linear for my taste. I like the ability to go back and re-fight battles or enter random fights in order to build up stats. You can't do that here. There are sub quests where you go back and fight in the same place. And if you lose a fight, you can go back and fight again while still gaining in skills and experience. Although if you lose your men too many times they won't be able to regenerate, forcing you to hire a new soldier. Once you finish the campaign, you can go and 'practice' to gain in xp, but that's a bit late for helping you during the campaign.

One last gripe. There's not a lot of variety between the skills you learn based on the type of soldier. You would think, for instance, the bowmen would have skills based on throwing projectiles, while the knights on horseback might have up close and personal skills. The mage should have its owns skills to master. Instead, everyone has almost the same skill list, just with different proficiencies.

But really, this is a fun game to play once you get into it. Automatically saving your progress works great (it's going to take you a while to beat the campaign). The graphics, as I mentioned before are great. The dialog is horrible (makes your hero look like an idiot). But still a great game for flash.

Revenge of the Stickmen

It should be fairly obvious by now that I like strategy games, which is why I often like to point out the desktop tower games. There's a new one out called revenge of the stickmen. The stickmen are coming out of the computer to wreak revenge on all who have done such horrible, horrible things to them over the years.

Place your towers, or in this case, pens, staplers, cell phones and staplers across the board to bar their way. Destroy them all before they escape out the window.

The game has some nice graphics, although the 3D effect causes the towers to overlap. That makes it harder to find the tower you want to upgrade. But that's only a slight annoyance. Not a lot of fun sounds.

Strategy: build up a cash reserve and make sure to spend your bonus (heads) on interest rates to help even more. Later on in the game, you'll need the extra cash to get by. Also, don't forget air defenses. Otherwise they'll blow right by you.

Once the stickmen enter your maze, they won't readjust their path unless they are forced to. So don't worry about selling a tower that's right next to a stickman. It won't suddenly change direction to take that space.

Once real criticism I have is the lack of ability in building multiple towers. Picking your tower, placing it and going back to the 'build' menu in the corner is slow. When you're trying to build up your maze, it's quite a pain.

BP Gas Mania

BP ManiaBP Gas Mania is clearly a marketing ploy from BP, and yet I can't stop playing it.

Like other mania games, the objective is to serve your customers, keeping them happy and making sure to collect your money when they're ready to leave. In this case, you are pumping gas at the happiest little gas station in town.

Career mode lets you get a taste of the various tasks you need to accomplish for each customer. The tasks are repetitive in nature in that its always the same order: move them to the pump, start the pump up, get their extra from the counter, and then get the payment. But there's always a line waiting and you need to keep everyone happy.

Once you've beaten career mode, you can try unlimited. But it isn't actually unlimited (although after a while you may feel like it's never going to end). You can finish the game.

The music is quite catchy, but if it doesn't drive you mad within the first three levels then you obviously already have the sound turned off.
