Dots Game Review

 

Since as far back as history can remember people have occupied themselves with games. Before video games were a thing, people enjoyed board games, and before board games started getting popular there were some very basic games that were enjoyed. Chess, for example, dates back as far as anyone can remember and could be one of the oldest games in history.

Then there are some more obscure games such as Egyptian Megiddo. The one key thing about all of these games is that they can be played without expensive pieces, with boards drawn in the dirty and substitute pieces in place of expensive carved ones.

That was the key to most ancient games: they must be brilliant in their own simplicity to allow anybody to play it. And most of these games live on to be cherished pastimes of bored children or thinking adults, depending on the context. One such game, Dots, is an age old classic that everybody should have enjoyed at some point. And now it’s in flash form, with a fairly intuitive script running the computer opponent in the single player version. It makes the game of Dots available to anyone with a computer, even if they don’t have two players.

Conclusion:

Dots is a very simple multiplayer puzzle game that challenges the players to think carefully on their moves. A slight slip can end up throwing the entire game, so once the labyrinth has been created it’s all about precision movement and carefully calculating gain versus loss.

There is much more to this game than one would think just by playing it, however it can simply be enjoyed without much cognitive thought thrown into it as well. All in all Dots can be a great challenge between friends and a quick game to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone who think they can handle it.

Play Territory War and Throw Things Everyday!

 

Territory War Game Review

Territory War is a game of throwing things. Basically, you’re hurling grenades at targets, through rings and into other people, trying to blow all of it to smithereens. It is reminiscent of the archery games on 2PG.com which require the player stay still while changing aim with the keyboard.

At least that’s how it is during the challenges which test the player to perform certain tasks under strict conditions. Territory War is also a lot like the Worms franchise, as you’ll discover if you just give it a try. Two teams of players go up against each other in a battle to the death over control of an island or other installation. It’s a bloody good time.

Conclusion:

A host of different environments, different ways to kill each other and different difficulties make Territory War one of the best flash games around. Because it’s so popular, you can find it almost anywhere you usually look for other flash games. While there is no online capability for the game, multiplayer mode with a friend at your house is still plenty of fun.

If you like the games from the Worms series like Worms: World Party and Worms 2000, you’re absolutely going to love Territory War, which delivers much of the same gameplay with none of the same price. Give it a try and see for yourself.

Street Fighter II Flash

Street Fighter II Flash

While Street Fighter is still a very strong series, with the most recent installment crossing over to take on Megaman characters, finding a neat little game like Street Fighter II Flash can give you the enjoyment of old school Street Fighter without forcing you to go buy an older system and the games themselves, or investing a lot of time into a console release.

It’s unfortunate it doesn’t have a single player mode, but when two people get together they can have a real blast.
