KFC takes us through the life of Colonel Sanders in a game


Double Down Browntown
May 20
Colonel Sanders lived an interesting life. In an attempt to bring him back into the public eye, fast food chain KFC wants to tell the story of his life, though it seems like it might be embellished a bit in the free minigame ... read

Legend of Zeldo: Lonk's Awakening is the second best Flappy Bird clone


Made by a Destructoid communityman!
May 04
Disclosure! Eric Neuhaus (Destructoid user donkeyspaceman or the artist formerly known as tsunamikitsune) made this game. I recognized Eric's name so I thought I might have been Facebook friends with him, but apparently I'm n... read

We can't stop playing the hilarious multiplayer web game Agar.io


Today's best thing
Apr 29
What're we up to in the Destructoid office today? Agar.io. It's a free web game in which you are a blob trying to absorb other blobs so that you can become the biggest, baddest blob around. Hey, that sounds like Osmos! But he... read

Newgrounds turns 20

Flash game portal Newgrounds turns 20 years old today


Now I feel old
Apr 25
These days, Tom Fulp is probably best known for his work with The Behemoth, behind games like Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Way back in the day, I knew him as the guy in charge of Newgrounds. I spent a ton of time (proba... read

King Dedede is your best new virtual pet friend


Poop, sleep, eat, life: This is Dedede

We all thought that Paperbeatsscissors had already conquered the Internet with this Hulk/Hulk designer t-shirt, but it turns out it was just getting warmed up. Now it has gone and made a new Tamagotchi-style virtual pet for y... read

Terry Cavanagh's new game takes on scummy advertising


Grab Them by the Eyes
Feb 27
First off, I recognize the irony in posting this on a website that gets most of its income from advertisements. Terry Cavanagh, best known for the punishingly difficult VVVVVV and Super Hexagon, has a new browser game out wit... read

Extrasolar's mobile interface got a slick update


Controlling an exoplanet rover on the go
Feb 26
Extrasolar has always been a tough sell for hardcore gamers, in my eyes. Though it was one of my top games of last year, most readers tune out when they see a description like "free-to-play science simulator," and going any f... read

Sega shuts down Valkyria Chronicles mobile game


Social card game Valkyria Duel hits the end of the line

0h n0: another simple, free, Japanese logic puzzle


Companion to 0h h1
Feb 13
Late last year I was turned on to 0h h1, a free digital version of the Japanese logic puzzle Takuzu. Developer Martin Kool of Q42 is at it again. 0h n0 is another adaptation, this time taking the puzzle Kuromasu and giving it... read

Platinum's 404 page is a cute little Bayonetta demake


How quickly can you mash the Enter key?
Feb 02
Instead of displaying a simple file-not-found message, the 404 page on Platinum Games' website holds a score-attack demake of Bayonetta. It's worth a moment of your day. The game is simplistic -- you jump and shoot at oncomin... read

Enchanted Cave 2

A free roguelike with music by Banjo-Kazooie's Grant Kirkhope? Yes, please!


The Enchanted Cave 2
Jan 26
I'm struggling to stop playing The Enchanted Cave 2 for long enough to tell you about it. Unassuming name and overabundance of roguelikes aside, this browser-based game is terrific. You delve into a cavern in search of gold, ... read

Upgrade Complete 3mium pokes fun at awful free-to-play games


And ends up being oddly enjoyable
Jan 19
Did you like DLC Quest, conceptually? You might also dig Upgrade Complete 3mium, a short browser-based game that parodies the worst aspects of free-to-play gaming. You're forced to play the crappy lite version of the game and... read

The short-lived adventures of pornman and porngal

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always wo... read

How does 900 classic arcade games in your browser sound?


Sounds pretty darn a-okay to me
Nov 04
Fancy the greatest classic gaming selection of all time? It's not at some fabled arcade where the sound of dropping quarters and eight-bit music drowns out the dimmed oldies rock station playing over the worn out speakers. No... read

Madden Crusade was made in under an hour


One of the crude, funny games of the 0h Game Jam
Nov 03
Did you remember to adjust your clock(s) on Sunday? I just slept in as always. Some game designers used the end of daylight saving time as an excuse to, get this, be productive. There's this thing called the 0h Game Jam in wh... read

Play free puzzler Transmission and maybe learn a little


Made for London's Science Museum
Oct 28
At first, Transmission looks like a pretty standard Eulerian path-based puzzle game. That is not a bad thing; I was pretty hooked on Lyne for a while. But as Transmission progresses, it follows the history of electronic commu... read

Idle gaming is anything but
They did it. Someone finally made an "idle game" that stuck with me and now here I am, almost two weeks later, still obsessing. Clicker Heroes has succeeded where Cookie Clicker failed. Granted, it's the same basic premise: c... read feature

Welcome to your new obsession

Dammit, it's Cookie Clicker all over again. Clicker Heroes is the new game that you won't be able to stop clicking (or at least paying attention to because you've got people to click for you). Clicker Heroes ta... read

Extrasolar Season 2 is being funded through Kickstarter


Season 1 still available for free
Sep 09
I do not envy Lazy 8 Studios with the balancing act it has trying to market Extrasolar. By revealing too little, only a relatively small demographic will ever try out the exoplanet rover simulator. By revealing too much, a t... read

Breath of Fire 6

This trailer for Breath of Fire 6 is as pretty as I expected, but that's about it


Online, web-based design isn't so impressive in my eyes, though
Jul 31
This animated trailer is absolutely stunning, but it does not do much to enthuse me for Breath of Fire 6. Breath of Fire 6, subtitled Guardians of the White Dragon, is set to be published as an online, web-based role-pl... read

Addictive games unite as Flappy Bird meets 2048


In theory, this should consume the rest of the time in your life
Apr 24
Much like 2004's Collision Course album, a mash-up of Jay-Z and Linkin Park songs, Flappy Bird and 2048 have been remixed together in a wonderful marriage of things that a lot of people love, but a lot of other peop... read

The game sucks, but free is free

The Raid is a great action film. It's sequel comes out this Friday. I assume it's also good. I saw a "making of" GIF where they pass a camera through a car window to the passenger seat, which is actually a disguised person, w... read

Is there a Frog Fractions 2 ARG already underway?


My head is spinning already and it has nothing to with actual fractions

The original Frog Fractions was one of the most bizarre things you could play in in a web browser, so it wasn't a surprise to see a potential sequel arrive on Kickstarter last week. What is odd is that, if the Kickstarter is ... read

This week's addictive browser game that I can't seem to quit is 2048, a sliding tiles game where you try to match numbers to multiply their value. The ultimate goal is to get a tile that's worth 2048 without having completely... read
