Categories: Advergames, Arcade, Flash, Free, Games, Online, Puzzle   1 comment - April 28, 2010

Truffle Hunter is an arcade puzzle advergame designed by Soap Creative for an Australian job search site, and unlike most advergames, this one is not bad at all!

Your goal is simple: make your pigs collect truffles!

To do so, simple click and drag to excavate the ground around your team of pigs. Try to avoid the baddies and also try to collect diamonds to score more points.

You must have at least one pig left at the end of each level to proceed to the next one.

With plenty of levels (24 in total), Truffle Hunter is a nice and very original game.

Have fun!

Transcripted

Categories: Arcade, Flash, Free, Games, Online   1 comment - January 23, 2010

Transcripted is an interesting mix between Zuma and an Asteroids arcade game created by Alkemi, from France.

Your goal is “to disrupt a chain of some kind of strange DNA by creating groups of 3 or more elements of the same color. Sounds boringly familiar ?

Well, there’s just a catch: you’ll have to do this while playing a shooter at the same time. Destroy biological hostiles, retrieve color cubes and aim carefully.”

Mixing a casual game with a hardcore game may sound like a strange mix, but, with a good concept, nice graphics and a good music, the final result is pretty good!

Have fun!

RicoBrix

Categories: Arcade, Flash, Free, Games, Online   4 comments - September 3, 2009

RicoBrixRicoBrix is a very nice Break-out-type game with a lot of power-ups, and one of the best Breakout clones I played recently. The game features 20 levels of pure fun; the only downside is that your pointer is hidden in this one, meaning that, sometimes, you might not be able to control your paddle, so be careful. Other than that, excellent game! Have fun!
