What’s wrong in the Flash Game Portals industry?

Categories: Flash, Others   3 comments - April 21, 2010

I don’t know if pictures are better than words, but here are a few ones that make me wonder what’s going on inside the Flash game portals industry.

I’m aware that Alexa is not really reliable for small/medium websites, but it’s more accurate for big websites, and all sites listed below rank from large+ to huge.

The price to pay for sponsoring a game at FlashGameLicence is getting higher and higher while it seems there is a significant traffic decrease for the biggest portals since mid-2009 (even though there are a few exceptions like AG, Bubblebox and Kong).

WHAT’S WRONG?
(Edit:) WILL SOCIAL NETWORKS KILL THE FLASH GAME PORTALS?

Extreme Heli Boarding 2

Categories: Action, Flash, Free, Games, Online, Sports    - March 4, 2010

After a very long hiatus, Martijn Kunst has just released his latest action sport game, Extreme Heli Boarding 2.

“Jump out of a helicopter into the untouched snow, make massive jumps and perform tricks at extreme height.”

You are given 30 seconds to score as many points as you can. Reach the next checkpoint to get extra time.

Use the arrow keys to move and press the spacebar to jump; hold down the spacebar to jump higher.

The key in this game is to make as many flips and long jumps as possible.

The last 100 results are automatically saved, so that other players can compete against each others. It’s really fun to see your rank updated in real time. Unfortunately, there is no overall highscore table, which is  disappointing. Martijn, if you read this, please add one!

Have fun!

Cover Orange 2

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Online, Puzzle, Video walkthrough   12 comments - February 6, 2010

By Johnny K, the author of Ragdoll Cannon and Roly-Poly Cannon, and Anton Koshechkin, here is Cover Orange 2, the sequel to the physics-based puzzle game Cover Orange.

The goal remains similar in the sequel: you will have to protect, not one but two smileys from the deadly rain in 25 brand new levels.

Just use your mouse to place all objects and wait for the cloud to pass by.

The biggest change with Cover Orange 2 is that it comes with an external level editor with which you can create your own levels and share them with others.

You can also send in your creation to the contest jury to have a chance to be featured in the next release. And the best part is that there’s $4000 total prize money awarded to the winning levels!

Have fun!

Magic Pen 2Magic Pen 2If you enjoyed playing Magic Pen last year, you will be pleased to learn that the author, Alejandro Guillen, has put the final touch to Magic Pen 2!

The goal in this sequel remains unchanged: you draw shapes that are affected by gravity, friction and inertia. Make clever use of their momentum to collect the flags with the red ball/square. To do so, draw objects in such a way that they push the ball in the desired direction.

With improved graphics (thanks to Luis Brenes) and 32 new levels, no doubt you will love it!

Roly-Poly CannonRoly-Poly CannonFrom Johnny K, the author of the Ragdoll Cannon series, here is Roly-Poly Cannon, another puzzle physics-based game.

“Roly-Poly bugs have settled down in the area. It is time to show these unwanted visitors that they have chosen the wrong place to hang out!

Don’t mind their cute appearance, just get rid of them one way or another. Your trusty cannon and an accurate aim is all you need to complete this task.”

This game has nothing to do with Roly-Poly from Nitrome, but if you are a fan of the Ragdoll Cannon series, you will probably like it!

Alpha Assault

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Online, Word   1 comment - April 17, 2008

Alpha AssaultAlpha AssaultAlpha Assault is a Word game developed by Likwid Game Studios. Your goal here is to protect your castle from being attacked by the red tiles. To remove the red tiles from the board, all you have to do is forming words that contain as many red tiles as possible.

Instructions: “Click a letter and drag to form a word. Click the last letter to submit the word.

As the game progresses you will encounter new tiles. These tiles can be helpful or harmful. You also earn money by forming words with certain values. Money can be used to purchase a custom letter to add to the board to form that big word you want to make, or to purchase power ups.

The power ups consist of a “Shuffle” power-up that shuffles all the letters on the board when you are stuck. A “Shock” power-up that zaps away 30% of the evil tiles, giving you that breathing room you need. And a “Bomb” tile that destroys all evil tiles in a radius.”

Alpha Assault is a very polished game that becomes extremely challenging as the levels go up. Forming as many bonus words as possible to get extra bomb power-up is essential to keep your castles safe in later levels. On the downside, some common words are not recognized as valid, which can be annoying from time to time.

Overall, Alpha Assault is another great game sponsored by Bubblebox that should please all word games lovers!

Have fun!

Spin the Black Circle

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Online, Skill, Video walkthrough   29 comments - January 26, 2008

Spin the Black CircleSpin the Black CircleSpin the Black Circle is a new skill game sponsored by Bubblebox. Your goal here is to control a little ball and make it reach the exit in a rotating maze while avoiding all the deadly traps. Use the left and right arrow keys to rotate the maze.

The author, Alejandro Guillen, has put a lot of effort into creating some challenging levels: as a result, it is almost impossible to complete the 24 levels in a row. This is not really an issue though, because the game automatically saves your progress and your best time for each level, so that you can come back to it later.

Overall, Spin the Black Circle is a very nice skill game, but it is also a very hard game that was obviously designed for serious players: are you a serious player?

Have fun!
