Happy Wheels

Happy Wheels takes you to a very unusual platformer adventure that will surely put your skills on a great test. It is generally a rag doll game in which your main objective is to reach the exit alive! Once you have chosen your preferred character, you need to pass through a series of challenging and seemingly inescapable levels with varying range of difficulties. A player should effectively evade all the deadly traps and mechanisms and try his best to prevent his character from sustaining too much damage. Please be mindful that this game contains explicit and gory content which makes it not suitable for young gamers. The game is generally simple yet surprisingly tricky and frustratingly challenging at some point and if you think you can master this game, then feel free to play Happy Wheels and see how far your skills can take you.

One thing that makes Happy Wheels more special is the overwhelming amount of game campaigns to choose from. As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted to the main screen that allows you to play the game based on the featured levels or an option to create your very own level through their Level Editor Campaign. For the Demo Version, there are nine featured levels to choose from. Obstacle Course allows you to pick one of the three available characters and pass through a series of challenging levels. Other modes with various objectives include “Gut Bus Extreme”, “BMX Park”, “Smokey Mountain”, “Dawn of the Dead”, “Large Satan Eats You”, “Trap Trac”, “It Keeps Happening” and “Rope Swing”. Each level is created by random players through Level Editor and was chosen to be part of the main game campaigns. Each will vary in terms of their gameplay, objective and the characters you can use.

Some levels will only require you to use specific character while others allow you to choose any. Speaking of characters, the demo version features three default characters to choose from which includes an old guy in a wheel chair, a Segway guy and the irresponsible dad (a guy in BMX with a kid at the back). Each has their own advantage and disadvantage. Hitting obstacles may result to a gory outcome like losing a limb, guts or even being beheaded but interestingly, despite the brutal condition, you can still move the character as long as most parts of your body is still intact, otherwise you have no other option but to start the game back to the very beginning. Good luck and have fun!

Yellow

Yellow is one of the latest addition to Bonte Games. It is a simple yet surprisingly tricky logic puzzle in which your goal is to make the entire screen yellow. The rule is simple but solutions are mostly tricky that requires players to visualize the puzzle carefully, come up with the most effective strategy and will surely put their skills and knowledge to test. The game will take you to 25 levels with varying difficulties. If you think you are the kind of person who can solve logical puzzles in no time, then this game is just perfect for you. Feel free to play Yellow and see how far your thinking skills can take you!

As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted immediately to a screen with interactive circles. Again, your main goal is to fill the entire screen with Yellow and this can be done in many different ways. Each level has different solution. Some of these solutions are simple and can be done in no time but others are surprisingly tricky. Some solutions are actually very easy but the way the levels are presented made the challenge a lot more complicated while others are simply hard to solve. Most of the interactions are done through mouse clicks but sometimes you must drag an item to make some progress. It is also ideal to look for the hotspots or clickable area as they can help you identify the kind of solution a level needs.

The rate of difficulty will drastically increase as you progress. Levels are becoming more and more complicated which will only put your skills and knowledge on a great test. Interestingly, there’s a level where it requires you to do nothing! I am not going to spoil much and you have to find it out on your own risk. Overall, Yellow is an interesting game that offers decent amount of challenge and fun. The game is also available in Android and IOS app for free which comes with 50 more levels to enjoy and some levels that are suitable for mobile play (this might include tilting of phone and more). Good luck and have fun!

One Day

What will you do if you found out that you are stuck on the same day over and over again and there is seemingly no way out to get you out of the loop? One Day will take you in this critical situation and your mission is to find your way out of this nightmare by using the things you have learned as your advantage. One Day is generally a very simple game with no visually entertaining details. In fact, all the interaction is done via mouse clicks and all you can see from screen is just a panel consisting of words and buttons but that is actually the greatest points of this game as it allows the players to visualize everything on their mind and think of what could possibly happened in this interesting decision-making game.

The game begins by waking up which gives you option either to get up or just to sleep more. Take note that for every action, you will spend an hour and it will just become a pattern. Once all the 24 hours are consumed, you will go back to the same loop but you will learn things in the process depending on those actions you have made. Every actions or decisions you make, you unlock and discover something new which makes the game even more engaging. Despite the fact that you keep on repeating the same day, it becomes more and more intriguing to find out the possible outcome. The game generally offers a lot of possibilities to explore and your fate will greatly depends on your decisions.

In the entire course of the game, you will be engaged in various activities like gardening, working, shopping and more. You’ll start off with a based money of $187 but you can find ways to earn money and buy stuffs from the market and other places. You can even try lottery and win great prices. You can chat with people you meet and if you are lucky, you can travel overseas too. You see, the game offers a bunch of possibilities and it broadens the player’s imagination as he keep on visualizing what could possibly happened. The game might be lacking of visually engaging details but it has a commendable replay value and some nostalgic approach (thanks to its retro-inspired music) that makes this game a lot more entertaining and fun to play with! Good luck!

Bob The Robber 4

Bob the robber is back in action but this time, he is up for bigger and possibly more challenging mission. If you enjoyed the first three games, then you will definitely find the fourth installment even more engaging and fun. Just like the game’s predecessors, your main objective in this game is to help Bob rob one house after another. In each house, you will be asked to rob a certain item which is usually hidden in a vault in random location. Your mission is to obtain the item without getting caught or sometimes, you must be able to find the exit before the time runs out, otherwise, the game wil come to a quick end. If you think you can master this game, then feel free to play Bob The Robber 4 and see how far your sneaking skills can take you.

As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted immediately to the first level. Bob The Robber 4 is done and played in a level by level basis. As I said, in order to clear the level, you must obtain the required item and reach the exit on time. A house is usually guarded by security and cameras and you must avoid being caught at all cost. This will simply trigger the alarm and will just end your game immediately. Control wise, you can move Bob using the arrow keys. Up Key allows you to interact with the objects and gather additional money along the way. The money that you will be gathered will be accumulated to the end and will be credited to your account. This money can later be used to purchase gadgets and to upgrade your character’s appearance, an interesting additional feature for Bob The Robber 4 which makes the game even more exciting.

Take note that the game is more than just avoiding obstacles and alarms. Most of the time, the action should be done with proper timing. It is very ideal to visualize the situation carefully in order to maximize your chances in winning. You are also endowed with abilities to pick a lock , deactivating alarms and be on stealth mode to prevent yourself from being caught (you can do so by hiding on areas covered with shadows). The intense part of the game is when you failed to reach the exit on time. When the time ran out, the inspector will soon arrive and will try to catch you. As far as the game play is concerned, nothing much was changed with Bob The Robber 4 compare to its predecessors and same thing goes with the graphics and music but it is generally fun and addictive and I guess that is the game’s strongest point! Have fun!

Aliens on a School Day?

Nobody can tell what exactly would happen in a day. Who knows, maybe the aliens will suddenly arrive to invade the planet. In this cute little game, you will witness an unusual event on a school day. A little girl was able to survive the invasion but that doesn’t mean she is already safe. Aliens will try their best to abduct her so you must help this poor little girl to fight for her life. Interestingly, you managed to find a way to escape and that is by going underground. The aliens’ laser, however, can still penetrate under so you must find an effective way to evade them and survive. If you think you can survive this challenge, then feel free to play this game and see how far or how deep you can go!

The mechanics of the game are very simple yet surprisingly tricky and challenging. The player is strongly encouraged to exert the best of his visual reflexes and to show off the best of his eye and hand coordination to maximize his chances of surviving. In this kind of platformer game, you are encouraged to go down by stepping on the platforms below but you must also take advantage of the platforms above since they can be your tool to protect you from the laser. It is very important to note that the laser will blast for every ten seconds. Therefore, you only have ten second to find a safe spot before the laser arrives. The laser can only penetrate through holes.

Another challenge that you will encounter ahead are the pesky moles. The moles are only capable of moving back and forth in their respective platforms but once you are detected by them, they will try their best to push you on the dangerous spot. You can kill them right away by stomping them but you must do it very quick before the laser strikes. Occasionally you will encounter platforms with hanging lanterns on them, these lanterns will serve as your checkpoints. Take note that once you got hit by the laser, the game is automatically over and you have no option but to start the game back from the very beginning unless, you were able to stand on a platform with lanterns on them. This will serve as your respawn point. The game is not being scored but the depth level will be recorded so basically, the deeper the distance you have reached the better the remarks you will get. The game, however, is only made on a limited time (submitted as a Ludum Dare Entry) but it has so much potential and it could actually grow as addictive mobile app. It was like a revert version of “Icy Jump”! Good luck and have fun!

Duke Dashington

Duke Dashington is a retro-inspired platformer and physics based puzzle game that will take you to a series of challenging levels with varying range of difficulties. It basically follows the story of an old explorer named Duke Dashington who recently discovered a hidden temple in Nenampis. His eagerness to find treasure made him decide to enter the temple despite the danger he might face ahead. When the temple started to shake, he made sure not to leave the place without finding any treasure. Your goal is to help Duke Dashington find the treasure at the core of the temple but this is not going to be an easy task as you will face an overwhelming amount of challenges along the way and in addition to that, you are only given a very limited time to clear each level and reach the exit.

As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted immediately to the game field. It is usually build with a maze of platform with only one exit. The time is very limited and to be specific, you only have ten seconds to escape each stage. Good thing , Mr Duke Dashington has a very special skill as he can dash in great speed. This particular skill will actually help and harm you in the process so better use it wisely. Take note that you are not walking here and instead, you are dashing. If you press the right arrow key for an instance, it will dash you on that particular direction without the ability to stop unless you bump a wall. The walls are actually your tools to alter your direction.

Timing is very important in this game. You should know when to turn right or left or when to go up and down. Spikes and other mechanisms can be encountered along the way and they should either be avoided or should be interacted with proper timing in order to clear the level without being killed. If you bumped to any obstacles, your character will be killed instantly and you have no other option but to start the same level back from the very beginning until you managed to make it through. Appearance wise, Duke Dashington has a touch of those retrospective interfaces similar to those classic platformer games that we grew up loving with. It is also matched with catchy music which is very impressive considering that the game itself is only developed within a limited time (it was an entry for a Ludum Dare challenge). Today, an extended version is now available on App Store with 100 rooms to explore and 4 temples to discover! Have fun!

Whack Your Ex

Dealing with your past relationship is quite tough. Some are lucky enough to have such proper closure but others are burning bridges and ending their relationship with grudge and hatred. Well, this game will highlight such case but in a brutal way. Whack your Ex is an exaggerated and rude version of a boyfriend and girlfriend fight. As what the title of the game suggests, your main objective is simple and that is to whack your ex using all the available weapons. What makes this game differ compare to other Whacking games such as Whack Your Boss and Whack Your Neighbor to name a few, is the fact that there are two characters involved in this game and both of them are interactive. Meaning, you can either play as the ex-girlfriend or the ex-boyfriend and it depends on what weapon you pick.

Interestingly, the game comes up with a tagline saying that this game is “cheaper than taking therapy”. It is described as a game that can be used to take out all your frustration after an unhealthy break up. It provides some kind of therapy that will handle your anger issues without harming a soul. The game however, features brutal and explicit content making it not really suitable for young gamers. As soon as the game begins, you will be promoted immediately to the battle area. The two cartoon characters can be seen on the center and they are both surrounded by random weapons. These weapons are things that are seemingly not harmful yet these guys can use it in a brutal revenge.

Some of the weapons that can be used include laptop, cars, birthday cap, credit cards, shoes, rocket launcher and a whole lot more. The interesting part here is that you will not have any idea how the attack will be executed. Just to set some expectations, some of them feature gross punishment including the use of feces (it is being applied in several attacks). According to the game developer, Whack Your Ex is a great tool to relieve your stress after a hurtful breakup. They said that this game can prevent someone from ending their life or hurting themselves or their partner physically. This game gives you the ability to hurt someone virtually without hurting anyone or being involved in a crime. The concept is still unacceptable though but hey, this game should not be taken seriously and should be played just for fun!

Pizza Quest

Carmel Games never failed to give us some entertaining point and click adventure game and they never failed in transforming a simple activity to a bigger adventure. In Pizza Quest, you will play the role of the palace’ newly assigned chef and your duty is to serve the queen. In your first day of work, the queen is seemingly craving for Pizza but you realized that you have no materials and ingredients to prepare one. Your job now is to find all the necessary ingredients and tools all over the palace in order make the pizza in no time. Who would have thought that preparing a pizza can end up in such a thrilling quest? If you have played the previous point and click adventure of Carmel Games, then you must know the drill and if not, then feel free to explore Pizza Quest and see what else this game has to offer.

The game will welcome you with a brief cinematic introduction telling a short story about the main character and how he ended up being the queen’s chef. Much like the rest of the point and click games, the only way to interact with the game is through mouse clicks. Simply hover the mouse over the objects to identify which is interactive and which is not. The cursor will change to a moving cog icon if the object is something you can collect or examine. In the entire course of the game, the player will be asked to collect various objects, gather clues and solve numerous puzzle along the way. See, who would have thought that gathering simple ingredients for pizza will end up in such a thrilling quest?

The puzzles are quite predictable and easy to solve though but despite of the game’s apparent simplicity, the player is still encouraged to observe very keenly and pay attention to every details to prevent overlooking the clues, otherwise, you might end up going to same places over and over again. But just in case you are having a hard time figuring out how to solve the puzzle, you can always check the hints for further assistance. Appearance wise, Pizza Quest is presented in a neat and visually stunning environment and is perfectly matched with cool and funny animation with amazing voice overs ( a feature used in most Carmel Games). This may not have a replay value (unless they will soon put timers on it and an interactive leaderboard) but the game is generally fun and entertaining to play with! Absolutely worth playing.

Deeeep.io

We have seen so much games from io and they never failed to amuse us with their games despite the fact that they all follow the same mechanics and gameplay. Deeeep.io will take us to another adventure. This time, as what the title of the game suggests, we will embark ourselves in a deep underwater journey where you play the role of a shifting animal. Much like most of the io games, your main objective here is to survive as long as you possibly can. You have to control your chosen animal and navigate through a wide stage and eat as many food as you can in order to gain a new level and evolve to a bigger form. This , however, will not be that easy as you are about to deal with an overwhelming amount of players on stage who can devour you in an instant! If you think you can survive this challenge, then feel free to play Deeeep.io and see how far you can go!

Generally, Deeeep.io is another survival of the fittest game. It follows the same mechanics with other well established games like slither.io, Agar.io and more but what really makes this game distinctive and unique above the rest? Appearance wise, the game is presented in a very simple atmosphere. It was not adorned with any visually stunning and intricately designed details yet still neat and colorful enough to be enjoyed. Despite of the game’s apparent simplicity, the gameplay is generally tricky and fun. You can move around the multidirectional stage by hovering the cursor of your mouse. Collect as many foods (colored circles) in order to gain level. The gauge meter is located below the screen to identify how much food you still need to intake before evolving to another character or animal. The interesting part of the game is the fact that each animal possesses different abilities. If you turned into an octopus for an instance, you will have the ability to poison every enemy that touches you.

Even though you got unique skills, you still have to be wary of the other enemies around you especially the large ones. Interestingly, there are special areas in this game that you can take advantage with. The sea weeds for an instance can be a hiding spot. Going under the sea weeds will put you in a stealth mode and enemies cannot harm or detect you while hiding. Eating foods will help you earn points but devouring other enemies will give you greater points and will speed up the process of evolving. Another great features of this game is the leaderboard system which displays all the top players. The game also has different servers to choose from. The score board and the game’s unpredictability provide the game an impressive replay value! Overall, Deeeep.io is another entertaining io game that you can confidently list on top of your list! Good luck and have fun!

Tomb of the Glitch King

In every video game, there is one thing that we do not really want to encounter ~ the glitches! In this game, however, glitches were intentionally inputted and you must deal with them and defeat its source. Tomb of the Glitch King is a fun yet surprisingly challenging physics based puzzle game. Your main objective is to play the role of a warrior who fearlessly enter the tomb of the so-called Glitch King. This is not an easy task though because the tomb is actually filled with an overwhelming amount of traps made by the glitch king himself. This game will take you to a series of challenging levels with varying range of difficulties. You just have to navigate the stage, avoid all the glitches and reach the exit portal that will prompt you to the next level. If you think you have enough skills to hunt the beast through his lair and end his darkness, then feel free to play this tricky game and see how far your skills can take you.

No further details were mentioned about your character and even any details about the Glitch King but despite of the missing information and a possible storyline which could have made the game even more engaging , the gameplay of Tomb of the Glitch King is actually entertaining and challenging enough to be enjoyed. As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted immediately to the main stage. Take note that you are only dealing with one room for the entire game but the glitches will change the passable path every level and you just have to find your way out. The room has four doors in each side. Entering one door allows you to pass through the other side. In order to clear a level, you have to make your way towards the green portal. Be mindful that the location of the portal is randomly changing per level.

There are many forms of glitches in this game. Most glitches will only make an area impassable while others are moving and something to be avoided. The skull glitches should be avoided at all cost, otherwise, touching them will only turn your character in a glitch and it will also end your level immediately and you have no other option but to play the same stage until you managed to make it through. Some levels will also require you to unlock doors while others require you to move extremely fast before the glitches reappear. The rate of difficulty will drastically increase as you progress. The higher the level, the more challenging the puzzle becomes. The mechanics are generally simple but the player is strongly encouraged to exert the best of his visual reflexes and to show off his impressive eye and hand coordination to maximize his chances in winning. With simple mechanics, addictive gameplay and decent amount of challenge, The Tomb of the Glitch King is truly an great game to play! Enjoy!
