Monday Mind Teasers: Particle Destroyer


Jul 26
// Tom Fronczak
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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Doodle God

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


Jun 21

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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Towlr

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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Epsilon [Update]


Feb 01
// Tom Fronczak
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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Drag Box

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...

Warning: The following may not be suitable for minors who are living completely happy lives. Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to play this game if you have any other plans for the rest of your night, or if you or your...

Monday Mind Teasers: Road Blocks


Nov 30
// Tom Fronczak
Many of you will know exactly how this week's game is played just by looking at the picture above. There's been dozens of these ball bounce puzzle mazes over the years, and they never get old to me. With this one being releas...

Monday Mind Teasers: Electric Box


Nov 23

Now that we're done with the mushy feelings involved with last week's series of emotional mind teaser games, it's time for another brainiac physics puzzle game! This one offers fifteen levels that will teach and torment you w...

Monday Mind Teasers: Colour My Heart & Colour My Dreams


Nov 16
// Tom Fronczak
Last week proved that great music in a game can make all the difference, and easily turn a decent game into something much more impacting and memorable. This week we visit the Colour series once again, as we get caught up wit...

Monday Mind Teasers: Colour My World


Nov 09
// Tom Fronczak
This week's mind teaser uses even less color than last week's fun hacking simulator game. Colour My World was rated as one of the top five Newgrounds games of October, and when you beat it in just five minutes, but still feel...

Monday Mind Teasers: Exploit


Nov 02
// Tom Fronczak
Last week's outdoors creature killer tactics game was inspired by a recent camping trip, whereas this week's hacking mind teaser is inspired by the start of dropping temperatures and my winter recluse phase. I might be a comp...

Monday Mind Teasers: Bloody Fun Day

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 ju...

Monday Mind Teasers: Sagrario’s Room Escape


Oct 19
// Tom Fronczak
Calling all claustrophobics! Step right up, and don't bother closing the door behind you because it's already closed. And locked. And, oh, look at that. The handle is missing. I hate it when that happens! That's right, we've ...

Monday Mind Teasers: Tank Search


Oct 12
// Tom Fronczak
With a name like Tank Search, you might expect another violent game like last week's KOI2, but instead we'll just be looking for tanks -- not using them. Paperbat's game is very simple and very addictive, and if you've ever s...

Monday Mind Teasers: KOI2

Last week was full of violence as Karoshi (Japanese for "death by overwork") brought us countless levels involving suicide strategies. If you thought that was the peak of Japanese odd vocabulary and Japanese-themed ...

Monday (mutilation) Mind Teasers: Karoshi series


Sep 28
// Tom Fronczak
Last week we played through a game where your future self torments you. This week we just plain old fashion torment ourselves. "Karoshi" is a Japanese word for "death by overwork" and with our hard working...

So how did last week's browser Diablo 2 clone game go? Did you point and click to your heart's content? Good. Because now I've got much more of a "mind teaser" game for you, and it comes in the form of everyone's fa...

Monday Mind Teasers: Merlin's Revenge 2


Sep 14

Are you done walking in circles from last week? This week we have a spectacular game that shouldn't be too hard to convince you to play. First question: did you love Diablo 2? Thought so. Last question: do you like flash game...

Monday Mind Teasers: Walking In Circles


Sep 07
// Tom Fronczak
On our previous flash adventure we ran into yet another locked room and most of us promptly conquered the “escape the room” in record time. However, this time around the block won't be as easy, and will constitute...

Monday Mind Teasers: Swan's Room


Aug 17
// Tom Fronczak
Last week had not one, but twelve puzzles for you to peruse over in the past week, and I encourage you to go back and give them each a try if you haven't yet. However, if you're all caught up and ready for a few more mind tea...

Monday Mind Teasers: GROW Games


Aug 10
// Tom Fronczak
Anyone beat last week's mind teaser yet? Didn't think so. Okay, no more games until we get past that hellacious hurdle -- see you next week!Okay, okay, okay. I'm not that cruel. But I am cruel enough to introduce you to the G...
