Monday Mind Teasers: Rhythm Doctor

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 on the whole h...

Super Mario Crossover 3.0 is just around the corner

Three years ago as of yesterday, indie dev Exploding Rabbit's Super Mario Bros. Crossover was unleashed online, and the reception couldn't have been warmer. For the benefit of the unfortunate few who haven't heard of this darling fan tribu...

Go punch a bunch of planets in Planet Punch

Planet Punch sees you as this mass of energy that steals the planet Earth, beats up our Sun, then goes around the galaxy punching the shit out of everything with the Earth. Yup, you guessed it, this is totally an Adult Swim game. It's a pre...

Robot Unicorn Attack goes retro

I'll talk about Robot Unicorn Attack any chance I can get. I do have to say though, I'm surprised it's taken this long for a retro version of the hit runner game to happen. Still, it's as a fun as ever with you collecting fairies, jump thro...

I-Mockery's next game is Bionic Chainsaw Pogo Gorilla

Last year, fans of I-Mockery's irreverent brand of pop culture humor were treated to Abobo's Big Adventure, a mashup of all things NES starring the muscle-bound Double Dragon boss Abobo. As hilarious as Abobo's Big Adventure was, I was just...

In which you date a ukulele-playing T-rex named Taira

I think we're all pretty familiar with dating sims. They're typically really cute, but mostly they're pretty erotic. Admit it, we've all played them before just to see what they were about and most of the time they're not that bad. Well I'v...

Monday Mind Teasers: The Guardian

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 ever played. Those...

 
 
Dead Ninjas review photo

Review: Super House of Dead Ninjas

After climbing down 350 floors of traps, monsters, and ninja ghosts, not to mention the extra levels seemingly without end, I've come to one conclusion: I should never become a ninja. Sure, I should have known that before I even started pla...

Monday Mind Teasers: Huebrix

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 wish it would hav...

Monday Mind Teasers: Kingdom Rush

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 made in the histor...

Monday Mind Teasers: Museum of Thieves

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 young cousins or c...

You should go check out Skrillex Quest

I'm pretty sure I've lamented in the past that I don't know what the kids are into with the music anymore. So, understand that I have no idea who this "Skrillex" person is, but I'm getting the idea that he's kind of becoming a thing.  ...

Frog Fractions: The most interesting game I played today

Jonathan Ross sent me the link to Frog Fractions this morning. I didn't give it enough time at first, believing it to be some weird browser-based educational game. Then I saw it brought up on Twitter and quickly realized there was much more...

Rockman Xover fan-made demo, plus actual game details

Capcom insists on seeing this construct through to the end, so I might as well keep abreast of the latest news and developments. First up is this fan-made Rockman Xover Flash demo that recreates the TGS build Conrad played. It's got everyth...

Fangasmic Mega Man clone Rokko Chan gets a remix album

[Update: I mistakenly said that Dj CUTMAN was the organizer for this project. It was actually the staff of the VG music site Nobuwo. My bad.] Rokko Chan was really something special, wasn't it? If you haven't played it or even heard of it, ...

Edmund McMillen's Basement Collection hits Steam Aug. 31

Indie designer Edmund McMillen wasn't kidding when he said The Basement Collection would be releasing in late August. Described as "9 years of indie video game goodness with all the bells an whistles I could drum up along the way," this com...

Alien Hominid played 20 million times on Newgrounds

Before it was a PS2, Gamecube, GBA, Xbox or XBLA game, Alien Hominid was a staple on the popular Flash portal Newgrounds. Just yesterday, the game's cute little yellow devil obtained a new milestone: 20 million plays. That's quite a bit of ...

A Super Mario Summary is the SparkNotes version of Mario

If you've got a few minutes to spare, you might want to give Johan Peitz's A Super Mario Summary a spin. Whipped up in 48 hours for the 23rd Ludum Dare game development event this past weekend, it's an abbreviated version of Mario's first "...

Sky Island is Fez for poor people

Do you want to play Fez but you can't afford to buy the game and/or a Xbox 360?  Well you're in luck. Sky Island is a Flash game that takes the concept of Fez but does it for free. Don't get too excited though. You get what you pay for...

Monday Mind Teasers: I saw her standing there

 . . . 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 only takes a few ...

Cheer a crying giant and save the world from his tears

"A very good videogame." - Jonathan Holmes That's the sum total of the description I was given before playing Atakachik, a Flash game from a few years ago which Holmes inexplicably turned up with this evening. When this happens, I go i...

Canabalt runs away to PSN

I don't know why running away from the destruction of an entire city is compelling, but it is. Just play Canabalt. Just before I wrote this up, I thought it would be a good time to play it for a couple of minutes. Half an hour later I was ...

Review: Abobo's Big Adventure

The NES era was a special time for a lot of us. Many of the staff here at Dtoid will always have a certain attachment to the period, myself included. Abobo's Big Adventure is a tribute to all those who grew up with the gaming gods of old. T...
