Last year, fans of I-Mockery's irreverent brand of pop culture humor were treated to Abobo's Big Adventure, a mashup of all things NES starring the muscle-bound Double Dragon boss Abobo. As hilarious as Abobo's Big Adventure ... read
I think we're all pretty familiar with dating sims. They're typically really cute, but mostly they're pretty erotic. Admit it, we've all played them before just to see what they were about and most of the time they're not tha... read
It's a little too short, a little too simple, a little tedious, and doesn't have enough music, but that's still not stopping me from declaring that The Guardian on Newgrounds is one of the best simple pixel art games I've eve... read
The tower of a thousand deaths After climbing down 350 floors of traps, monsters, and ninja ghosts, not to mention the extra levels seemingly without end, I've come to one conclusion: I should never become a ninja. Sure, I should have known that before I e... read feature
I love games that find complexity by exploring simplicity. This flash game does a great job of stripping down the fill-a-grid color maze genre, and it continually adds new path manipulation puzzle concepts along the way. I wi... read
You poor, poor gamer soul. It's getting late and you were just about to sign off and go to bed. Then you checked the new Monday Mind Teaser. You fool.
It's no secret that this is one of the most addicting flash games ever mad... read
I found this game before I knew it was associated with a preteen dystopian adventure novel, and while The Keepers trilogy is far from being the next Harry Potter craze, it still looks like it could be a good gift for your you... read
I'm pretty sure I've lamented in the past that I don't know what the kids are into with the music anymore. So, understand that I have no idea who this "Skrillex" person is, but I'm getting the idea that he's kind of becoming ... read
Jonathan Ross sent me the link to Frog Fractions this morning. I didn't give it enough time at first, believing it to be some weird browser-based educational game. Then I saw it brought up on Twitter and quickly realized ther... read
Capcom insists on seeing this construct through to the end, so I might as well keep abreast of the latest news and developments.
First up is this fan-made Rockman Xover Flash demo that recreates the TGS build Conrad played. I... read
[Update: I mistakenly said that Dj CUTMAN was the organizer for this project. It was actually the staff of the VG music site Nobuwo. My bad.]
Rokko Chan was really something special, wasn't it? If you haven't played it or eve... read
Indie designer Edmund McMillen wasn't kidding when he said The Basement Collection would be releasing in late August. Described as "9 years of indie video game goodness with all the bells an whistles I could drum up along the... read

Before it was a PS2, Gamecube, GBA, Xbox or XBLA game, Alien Hominid was a staple on the popular Flash portal Newgrounds. Just yesterday, the game's cute little yellow devil obtained a new milestone: 20 million plays. That's ... read
If you've got a few minutes to spare, you might want to give Johan Peitz's A Super Mario Summary a spin. Whipped up in 48 hours for the 23rd Ludum Dare game development event this past weekend, it's an abbreviated version of ... read
Do you want to play Fez but you can't afford to buy the game and/or a Xbox 360?
Well you're in luck. Sky Island is a Flash game that takes the concept of Fez but does it for free. Don't get too excited though. You get w... read
. . . but then she was a zombie. This enjoyably simple game popped up on Reddit over the weekend and its concept and music carry it a long way beyond its sparse graphics and easy difficulty. The KrangGames flash game on... read
"A very good videogame." - Jonathan Holmes
That's the sum total of the description I was given before playing Atakachik, a Flash game from a few years ago which Holmes inexplicably turned up with this evening. When this ... read
I don't know why running away from the destruction of an entire city is compelling, but it is. Just play Canabalt. Just before I wrote this up, I thought it would be a good time to play it for a couple of minutes. Half an ho... read
The NES era was a special time for a lot of us. Many of the staff here at Dtoid will always have a certain attachment to the period, myself included.
Abobo's Big Adventure is a tribute to all those who grew up with the gaming gods of old. This free Flash game is quite fun and funny, definitely well worth a trip down memory lane. read feature
Super Mario Bros Crossover, a flash game which takes characters from classic videogames and puts them into a recreation of Super Mario Bros., has had an update in the works for over a year now. Version 2.0, which we first tol... read
A couple years ago, Jay "Exploding Rabbit" Pavlina had the idea to remake Super Mario Bros. with 100% accuracy down to the last pixel... with the added twist of being able to play as other NES stars such as Mega Man, Link, S... read
I started playing a bit of Kingdom Rush two weeks ago following the news of the Flash game's iPad release, and managed to drag myself away from Ironhide Game Studio's excellent little tower defense title before an entire day ... read
This post is already way too much about me and way too little about the story, so how about we take that narcissism as far as we can and see what happens? I'm sad. I can't get keyboard-controlled Flash games to wor... read
What are you doing at this moment? Probably something banal and stupid. Why not do something worthwhile with your meager existence by playing Abobo's Big Adventure? It's out right now, you nancies! read
[Update: It turns out that the enhanced maps and tilesets were made by Jon Leung of VGMaps back in April 2007. He wasn't properly credited for the use of his edits. Not cool, Flip Industries. Not cool at all.]

Last week, I shared Rokko Chan, a most adorable Mega Man clone that swapped the Blue Bomber for the Blue Bombette. It's a great game in its own right, sporting the same high polish, incredible pixel art, and catchy jams as it... read

After Mega Man went back to his 8-bit roots with Mega Man 9, more than a number of fans had hoped that Capcom would pump out an SNES-styled Mega Man X9 in turn. That didn't happen, and considering the Blue Bomber's current "... read
