Sumz!

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Multiplayer, Online, Puzzle   1 comment - August 24, 2007

Sumz!Sumz!Sumz! is a new Multiplayer Puzzle math game created by Absolutist, the authors of Numberz! and Digitz!

Your goal here is to be the first to clear the board from all spheres. Spheres and cubes contains numbers from 0 to 9, and all you need to do is create horizontal or vertical combinations of spheres and/or cubes that summed together give the targeted number featured on the top of the board.

Use the left and right arrow keys to move your group of three cubes at the top of the screen, and use the up and down arrow keys to switch the order of the cubes. Press spacebar to quickly drop a group of cubes and make a new one appear.

Sumz! reminds me of Koozac; you won’t spend hours on this game, but if you’re looking for a 10 minute diversion, it’s worth checking out!

Have fun!

TriPeakz!

Categories: Cards, Flash, Free, Games, Multiplayer, Online   1 comment - July 20, 2007

Tripeakz!Tripeakz!TriPeakz! is the first multiplayer card game developed by Absolutist, the creators of the recently reviewed Numberz!

Your goal here is to be the first to move all your cards from the board to the discard pile located at the bottom of the game window.

To move a card down, just click a card that is one higher or one lower than the top card of the discard pile.

Jokers (J) match any card on the discard pile and R cards are used to remove any card from your board (use them wisely).

Note that there is an undo button to cancel your last move, particularly useful in fast-paced situations.

I played TriPeakz! for over an hour before I sat down to write this review, and all I can say is that this game is really addictive! TriPeakz! is one of my favorite games from Absolutist so far and I would highly recommend this game to any Solitaire fan!

Numberz!

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Multiplayer, Online, Puzzle    - July 20, 2007

Numberz!Numberz!Numberz! is a new simple multiplayer mental math game developed by Absolutist, the creators of Digitz!.

Your goal here is to sum digits on the board (use your mouse to select them) and create sequences of connected – horizontally or vertically – tiles which, summed together, give a certain targeted total shown at the top of the game window.

The cells containing a valid sequence of digits are “cleared” (they turn white) and you and another player compete in each level to be the first to clear your board.

Numberz! gameplay is very close to the Digitz! one, and for the most part, you do the same thing. If you enjoyed Digitz!, you will probably love Numberz! as well.

Fitz!

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Multiplayer, Online, Puzzle   16 comments - June 18, 2007

Fitz!Fitz!Fitz is a multiplayer match-three puzzle game inspired from games like the very popular Bejeweled or the previously reviewed Zoo Keeper and Swap Job. The aim of this game created by Absolutist, is to line three or more identical objects horizontally or vertically to make them disappear and clear the board before your opponent does.

To do so, simply swap two objects from adjacent tiles, and when it’s possible, unlock the colored tiles on the playfield by matching objects inside them.

Fitz! is not original by any means, but this multiplayer version offers a really exciting challenge for people of all ages: competing against others in real time is lot of fun, and the game succeeds in generating more than enough excitement to please even the most skeptical fan.

DigitzDigitzDigitz is a simple multiplayer mental math game developped by Absolutist, the creators of Wordz. The game is simple enough to be fun for the whole family and is available at Wellgames.com.

Your goal here is to move digits on the board (use your mouse to do so) and create horizontal or vertical sequences of digits which, summed together, give a certain targeted total shown at the top of the game window.

The cells containing a valid sequence of digits are “cleared” (they turn white) and you and another player compete in each level to be the first to clear your board.

Digitz rapidly becomes surprisingly addictive as you try to clear as many cells as possible. With its 40 levels, this game should keep you entertained for a while!

Wordz!

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Multiplayer, Online, Word   2 comments - March 5, 2007

WordzWordzWordz is a simple multiplayer word game developed by the people behind Absolutist, a games publisher from Ukraine.

The game combines “crossword basis with simple swap-and-match gameplay” and is available at Wellgames.com.

In Wordz, you can test your vocabulary and your spelling skills against a human opponent: your goal here is to swap letters (use your mouse to do so) and be the first to decipher the different words randomly featured in each level.

A nice surprise is that the game is in SIX different languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Russian!

Playing online against a human opponent is usually an interesting experience, and Wordz succeeds where most of word games on the web fail due to the lack of multiplayer features: Wellgames has enough traffic to find an opponent within seconds! Racing against another player is a lot of fun, especially if you select a language that is not your native one!

On the downside, there is no ranking system to sort the players by and there are no high score tables; players of different levels can play together, which can lead to some frustrating moments for both players.

That being said, if word games are something you enjoy, Wordz is a game that you simply can’t miss!

Have fun!

kdice

kdicekdiceRemember Dice Wars, this Risk-like game developed by Taro Ito from Game Design? kdice, a multi player version of Dice Wars, was released in beta version on December 1st by Ryan Dewsbury, with the same set of rules as the original.

I visited the site several times during the last three days: you need to register first before being able to play, but the experience really worth it!

As I read somewhere, luck is a big part of the game. And you will have to wait sometimes several minutes before a new game starts; and yes, there seems to be some freeze issues with the game at the time of writing (at least it happened to some of us).

Having said that, playing kdice with six other players is definitely a lot of fun and you can’t miss this one: have fun!

Crystal Clear Multiplayer

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Multiplayer, Online, Puzzle   1 comment - October 20, 2006

Crystal Clear MultiplayerCrystal Clear MultiplayerCrystal Clear Multiplayer is live at Gamesheep! Released yesterday and still in beta version, you can now play against other players from all around the world and test your skills with this new game.

Rules are a bit different in the multiplayer version: the goal here is to fill your opponent’s board with crystals. To do so, form the largest groups of crystals as possible on your own board: the largest they are, the more crystals will be sent to you opponent’s board when they will disappear.

First of all, select a zone (3 different zones are available) and then after login (no registration needed at the time of writing, just enter a user name), select one of the 4 rooms available, from Beginner to Professional.

All players are ranked, and you can’t enter in the Med (Intermediate) and Pro rooms if your ranking is not high enough. You will start with a ranking of 1200 and will earn/loose 10 points for each game won/lost. Note that if you or your opponent leaves the game before the end, you/he will loose 20 points, to discourage game abandons.

After selecting one of the two Beginner rooms, just click the “create a new game” button and wait for an opponent to join, or enter an existing game. Once a game begins, your opponent’s board is displayed on the right of the game window, and you can start playing and chatting with him.

Playing Crystal Clear against a human is a whole new story: it’s exciting and it’s fast! A round last around five minutes and is short enough to avoid abandons. Well done!

The goal here is not only to build large groups of crystals but also to keep them growing as long as possible before removing them from your board: sending 20 or more crystals to your opponent near the end of the game usually lead to an instant defeat!

As mentioned above, the game is still in beta version, and the global rankings are not available yet. But you can already create a list with your friends or preferred players, or even your private room with access protected by password.

I had hours of fun today playing Crystal Clear with other players: this multiplayer version is extremely addictive and is one of the best multiplayer games I have played so far. Simple and brilliant!

Have fun!

ZWoK

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Multiplayer, Online, Strategy   8 comments - June 27, 2006

ZWoKZWoKZWoK is the first multiplayer Flash game reviewed at Free Games News. Developed by Bloc Media, also known as Bloc Games, the team behind Pop Pirates, this Worms-like strategy oriented game involves two 3-players teams, Blooz versus Grienz, that compete against each other in a deadly fight where the winner team is the one with at least one standing zwok.

Before you can start playing, you will have to register: to create your character, enter first you user name and your password (and a valid email address to confirm your registration), customize your avatar and select the team you will be representing.

After completing the registration process, you’re all set to go! You will join a randomly selected team by the server and then enter in a 10 seconds rounds battle: once a round begin, you have only 10 seconds to move your zwok with the arrow keys and then select the angle and the power for your weapon’s projectile. When the countdown ends, all the remaining zwoks on the battle field start moving and then fire on their opponents. If your zwok hits an opponent (or more), you will earn points relative to the damages inflicted. Each zwok starts the battle with 100 hit points. Being injured by enemies projectiles will decrease your total number of hit points. After gaining experience by scoring points, new projectiles will become available.

With ZWoK, Bloc Media has launched a truly amazing and addictive, easy-to-play multiplayer game! With gorgeous graphics and animations, no doubt that a lot of players will spend hours with this one: just have a look to the high-score table to see what I mean! Another true jewel! Have fun!

Note: Use the Quick Play option if you don’t want to register, but your progress won’t be saved in the Hi-score table if you do so. This game is available in a dozen of different European languages!
