Did everyone escape the clutches of last week's locked room game? Great! This week we face a whole different type of mind teaser game, with both turn-based and path-based strategies to consider at each step along the way.

I just got back from a huge camping trip, involving several days of long hikes through pathless woods, which ended in a seven mile hike earlier today. Now that both my body and brain are mush, I wanted to find a puzzle game that would be as simple as clicking one button, and Bloody Fun Day was fitting in more ways than one.

This weekend I stumbled upon dozens of deer, crayfish, raccoons, hawks, vultures, owls, flying squirrels, chipmunks and plenty of other wildlife. Despite loving every pristine moment of it, and even though I've never been the hunter-type in real life (but love them in RPGs), I have no qualms about coming home and playing a flash game that revolves around slaughtering fields of cute little critters. The music is also very relaxing if audio stimulation is a must for you.

Simply time and guide your paths so that your grim reaper character can kill the largest clusters of similar adjacent animals, and allow enough time in between routes for optimal egg hatching cycles so that you can start the killing spree all over again with even more targets in your sights. Add the sub-strategy where different critters do different things when killed, and the bonus special attacks that appear when you rack up enough kills on each species, and you've got quite the extinction simulator puzzle game. Or, if you just want to relive your Oregon Trail days of mindlessly killing ten buffalo for fun, then this Pokémon genocide game is still a great time.
