Review: Super House of Dead Ninjas photo
Review: Super House of Dead Ninjas
by Fraser Brown

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 even started playing Super House of Dead Ninjas, but it's nice to have confirmation.

I've died a lot. Countless times, really. Not enough to earn the achievement "Dedication," which one gets for dying a whooping 1000 times, but that achievement should tell you that this is a game about living for mere minutes. Thankfully, those minutes are filled with blood-soaked joy, certainly enough so that dusting one's self off and starting again isn't too great a chore.

Monday Mind Teasers: Huebrix

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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Kingdom Rush

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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Museum of Thieves

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...

You should go check out Skrillex Quest

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 ...

Frog Fractions: The most interesting game I played today

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...

Fangasmic Mega Man clone Rokko Chan gets a remix album photo
Fangasmic Mega Man clone Rokko Chan gets a remix album
by Tony Ponce

[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 even heard of it, you should correct your mistake right now. It's a cute little Flash game that copies the Mega Man formula wholesale, only it changes names and locations "to protect the innocent." It could pass off as a direct sequel to the NES classics, but a few unexpected surprises are sprinkled throughout just to keep you on your toes.

One of the many highlights was the game's chiptune soundtrack, which can be downloaded for free. It's so spectacular that videogame audio site Nobuwo decided to organize a remix album and release it through the GameChops net label. Rokko Chan: Extended Play is an eight-track tribute -- the first track is actually pulled directly from the OST -- that rearranges the music in the same chiptune style.

Dj CUTMAN and Spamtron, who worked together on the Zelda II-themed Bagu and the Riverman, contribute one track, while other artists round up the lineup. One track is even produced by FantomenK, whose song "The Massacre" serves as the closing theme for Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? Long story short, go and download the free album from Bandcamp as soon as you can!

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...

Monday Mind Teasers: I saw her standing there

Canabalt runs away to PSN

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...
