No Man's Sky can't be spoiled


Game's so big, everyone's experiences will differ
Jul 13
// Vikki Blake
Don't worry about avoiding videos and interviews regarding No Man's Sky; the game can't be spoiled, according to the developer. Talking to The Guardian, Hello Games’ Sean Murray said the sheer scale of the gam...

Monday Mind Teasers: Rhythm Doctor


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...

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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Kingdom Rush


Aaaaand, there goes eight hours of your life. Sorry about that.
Mar 04

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


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...

Learn up to ten new words in each round!
Feb 18

Are you ready to flex your brains and have some fun?! That's right, the weekly Monday Mind Teasers are back! It's been so long since I've visited the always-helpful online Dictionary site that I don't even know how long they'...

Monday Mind Teasers: I saw her standing there


Apr 16
// Tom Fronczak
 . . . 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...

Happy 4th of July! For those of you who didn't get a chance to enjoy any fireworks tonight, this Destructoid header image goes out to you! You know how it works by now. With the help of each other, try to figure out all of th...

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 ...

I saw this wonderful vocabulary game on Reddit a few months ago and have been meaning to post it ever since. I've been busy with the Flixist launch for the last few months, but now that things are stable and awesome on a dail...

Monday Mind Teasers: Super PSTW RPG


Jan 10
// Tom Fronczak
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...

Monday Mind Teasers! Doodle Devil


Nov 08
// Tom Fronczak
Remember the addictive Doodle God flash game that was online for free and extended on the iPhone for $1? Well JoyBits has brought us Doodle Devil, with more evil Halloween influenced spells this time around. It's still j...

From mirosurabu -- the man who brought us the much loved Tower of Heaven port -- comes another intriguing flash game port of a free, downloadable PC game. It's pretty impressive that Kyle Pulver made this entire game in ...

Monday Mind Teasers: Worm Food (Hell yeah! Tremors game!)


Aug 09
// Tom Fronczak
Reasons why you should play this game: You play as a Tremor grabboid creature.  Tremors is probably the best monster movie ever made. Playing as a Tremor is basically Tony Hawk meets Echo meets Black & White. You ge...

Monday Mind Teasers: Particle Destroyer

Recently on Reddit, I discovered quite the artistically pleasing recreation of the old Breakout game. Those of you who are flash code fanatics can dig through all of its lines of code here, but since its code credits are in J...

The previous Monday Mind Teaser game Fault Line was a big hit with readers, and I think this week's game will be too! For those of you like me, who refuse to upgrade to an iPhone or similar device, you can play nearly 100% of...

Monday Mind Teasers: Fault Line

I've lost count of how many Portal styled map manipulation flash game spinoffs I've posted for Monday Mind Teasers, but I have yet to find one I didn't like. It's impressive how many different directions the mechanic can be t...

Monday Mind Teaser: The Company of Myself


Apr 26
// Tom Fronczak
Let me be very clear: The Company of Myself is brilliant. I'm a lifelong defender of the gaming industry as one of the best art mediums the future has to offer, but due to my high expectations I often find myself not agreeing...

In the previous Monday Mind Teaser we gave Closure another look, and since then it went on to win an award in "Excellence in Audio" at the Independent Games Festival. Closure definitely has other strong points, but for going ...

Monday Mind Teasers: Closure


Mar 08
// Tom Fronczak
This week's puzzle game will either fascinate or terrify you. Maybe both. Oh, and unlike recent mind teasers, it's so impressive that it's being remade for a PC release, which is up for three IGF award nominations and will be...

Monday Mind Teasers: Starmageddon


Mar 01

After last week's Blosics 2 physics box bonanza I was in the mood for a dark and deep puzzle adventure game this week, but Gateway ended up being way too short, and its sequel is barely more than a buggy remake. So this ...

Monday Mind Teasers: Blosics 2


Feb 22

Do you like explosions? Of course you do. Pixel art adventure games are fun and all, but sometimes I just need digital destruction to keep me amused. Throw in some slingshot game design, particle scatter physics, 30 levels an...

Monday Mind Teasers: One Button Bob


Feb 15
// Tom Fronczak
Hey, this is certainly no Robot Unicorn Attack, but I'm still confident this gorgeous pixel art game will be one of the better flash games of 2010. If Boomshine was the Fl0w of indie flash games this year, and Adult Swim's Ro...

Monday Mind Teasers: Robot Unicorn Attack


Feb 08
// Tom Fronczak
Yes, you read that correct. This week's Monday Masculinity Teaser is none other than the famous phantasmagorical stallion sidescroller game, Robot Unicorn Attack. It's already sold 2 million copies worldwide, won three Game o...

Did you survive the last mind teaser with your brain intact? Good! Because it's time to put your head to good use again with this temporal puzzle game. If you even remotely enjoyed Portal, then this is a flash game you defini...

Monday Brainssss Teasers: zOMGies


Jan 18
// Tom Fronczak
This week's Monday Mind Teasers game is a lot like the last one . . . except with zombies. Okay, so not really. Instead of a sidescroller where you constantly dodge different shaped obstacles, you're challenged to outrun a ne...

Last week's Boomshine game did a phenomenal job at keeping things as simple as possible while still being thoroughly enjoyable. This week's game does a great job of taking a similarly simple concept, but instead making it mor...

Did you survive the last Monday Mind Teaser challenge? There were many casualties and a lot of great men, women, and robots were lost to The World's Hardest Game. I contemplated slapping everyone in the face with the game's s...
