In the previous debate we matched the three current generation consoles against one another to see which would be the victor of this era of gaming. When the dust settled, the PS3 ran away with the crown, but who claimed secon...

Game Debate to the Death! Favorite Half-Life game?


My vote is for the game that came out on time.
May 28
// Tom Fronczak
In the previous debate we welcomed the community to vent their frustrations over all the series they wished would just die, and this week we discuss a game that has yet to even be born. As for the winner of the most hated gam...

Save lives in this medical musical hybrid game!
Apr 29
// Tom Fronczak
For this week's mind teaser we're not just using our brains, we're using our ears. Rhythm Doctor on Newgrounds challenges players to participate in the tunes at specific moments to progress, with an interesting (bizarre) spin...

Game Debate to the Death! What series needs to just die?


Associated Press just reported the Tetris series died ;)
Apr 23
// Tom Fronczak
In a recent debate, Dtoid user ctrain had a very good point. For a Web series that's been running for seven years with the name "Game Debate to the Death" we've certainly seen a lot of debates, but not so many deaths. There h...

"Would you kindly?"
Apr 16
// Tom Fronczak
In the previous debate we welcomed the new Tomb Raider installment with a debate against its predecessors in the series. Every single game in the series received at least one vote, so it was fulfilling to see it be a close ra...

In the previous debate we gave the SimCity hate a rest and instead focused on which game developer was the most loyal to their fans. More than a hundred people joined in on the debate and dozens of teams received much deserve...

Monday Mind Teasers: The Guardian


A short Shadow of the Colossus pixel art homage game
Apr 01
// Tom Fronczak
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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Huebrix


It's like a maze that had a baby with a bag of Skittles
Mar 11
// Tom Fronczak
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...

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...

Last week's Assassin Creed debate turned into a rogue race between the first two games in the series, with Assassin's Creed II coming out on top by a few votes . . . and jumping to its close demise in a pile of hay below. Bro...

Monday Mind Teasers: Museum of Thieves


Spot-the-difference puzzle game with hints of I Spy and Harry Potter
Feb 25
// Tom Fronczak
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...

 . . . 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...

Monday Mind Teaser: Otomata

Since you guys liked Sembeo sound matrix so much, here's another spatial sound synthesizer program that lets you create music. This one feels slightly more like a game in that each note has an intended direction to it, so by ...

This week I'm taking it easy on your brains. Really easy. Super incredibly hyperbole easy. So easy that reading this paragraph might be harder for some of our readers than actually beating this game. If you're ready to set ou...

Monday Mind Teaser: Sembeo sound matrix


Dec 06
// Tom Fronczak
No, that's not a piece of pixel art, nor is it a Myst puzzle key. It's a lovely spatial sound synthesizer flash program that lets you plug in notes like a monochromatic Lite-Brite toy that creates music depending on which axi...
