Legend of Zeldo: Lonk's Awakening is the second best Flappy Bird clone

Disclosure! Eric Neuhaus (Destructoid user donkeyspaceman or the artist formerly known as tsunamikitsune) made this game. I recognized Eric's name so I thought I might have been Facebook friends with him, but apparently I'm not. What the fu...   read

We can't stop playing the hilarious multiplayer web game Agar.io

What're we up to in the Destructoid office today? Agar.io. It's a free web game in which you are a blob trying to absorb other blobs so that you can become the biggest, baddest blob around. Hey, that sounds like Osmos! But here's the twist:...   read

Newgrounds turns 20

Flash game portal Newgrounds turns 20 years old today

These days, Tom Fulp is probably best known for his work with The Behemoth, behind games like Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Way back in the day, I knew him as the guy in charge of Newgrounds. I spent a ton of time (probably too much) i...   read

King Dedede is your best new virtual pet friend

We all thought that Paperbeatsscissors had already conquered the Internet with this Hulk/Hulk designer t-shirt, but it turns out it was just getting warmed up. Now it has gone and made a new Tamagotchi-style virtual pet for you computer sta...   read

Terry Cavanagh's new game takes on scummy advertising

First off, I recognize the irony in posting this on a website that gets most of its income from advertisements. Terry Cavanagh, best known for the punishingly difficult VVVVVV and Super Hexagon, has a new browser game out with biting critic...   read

Extrasolar's mobile interface got a slick update

Extrasolar has always been a tough sell for hardcore gamers, in my eyes. Though it was one of my top games of last year, most readers tune out when they see a description like "free-to-play science simulator," and going any further into why...   read

Sega shuts down Valkyria Chronicles mobile game

Sega and NHN are terminating service for their card-based social game Valkyria Chronicles Duel. The lights began going out today, as the companies have already discontinued sales of the browser and mobile game's virtual currency. The final ...   read

0h n0: another simple, free, Japanese logic puzzle

Late last year I was turned on to 0h h1, a free digital version of the Japanese logic puzzle Takuzu. Developer Martin Kool of Q42 is at it again. 0h n0 is another adaptation, this time taking the puzzle Kuromasu and giving it the procedural...   read

Platinum's 404 page is a cute little Bayonetta demake

Instead of displaying a simple file-not-found message, the 404 page on Platinum Games' website holds a score-attack demake of Bayonetta. It's worth a moment of your day. The game is simplistic -- you jump and shoot at oncoming angels -- but...   read

A free roguelike with music by Banjo-Kazooie's Grant Kirkhope? Yes, please!

I'm struggling to stop playing The Enchanted Cave 2 for long enough to tell you about it. Unassuming name and overabundance of roguelikes aside, this browser-based game is terrific. You delve into a cavern in search of gold, gear, and exper...   read

Upgrade Complete 3mium pokes fun at awful free-to-play games

Did you like DLC Quest, conceptually? You might also dig Upgrade Complete 3mium, a short browser-based game that parodies the worst aspects of free-to-play gaming. You're forced to play the crappy lite version of the game and shoot down wav...   read

Wolfenstein, Prince of Persia, Softporn II: 2,400 MS-DOS games playable free in-browser

The Internet Archive has added to its archive with nearly 2,400 MS-DOS games that are all playable right in your browser, right here. I've flitted between between Prince of Persia, Donkey Kong, and Aladdin within minutes, mostly abando...   read

Need something free to pass the time? 0h h1 is sort of like binary sudoku

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always works to pass som...   read

How does 900 classic arcade games in your browser sound?

Fancy the greatest classic gaming selection of all time? It's not at some fabled arcade where the sound of dropping quarters and eight-bit music drowns out the dimmed oldies rock station playing over the worn out speakers. No, instead, it's...   read

Madden Crusade was made in under an hour

Did you remember to adjust your clock(s) on Sunday? I just slept in as always. Some game designers used the end of daylight saving time as an excuse to, get this, be productive. There's this thing called the 0h Game Jam in which developers ...   read

Play free puzzler Transmission and maybe learn a little

At first, Transmission looks like a pretty standard Eulerian path-based puzzle game. That is not a bad thing; I was pretty hooked on Lyne for a while. But as Transmission progresses, it follows the history of electronic communication, and i...   read

Clicker Heroes

I have a problem and its name is Clicker Heroes

They did it. Someone finally made an "idle game" that stuck with me and now here I am, almost two weeks later, still obsessing. Clicker Heroes has succeeded where Cookie Clicker failed. Granted, it's the same basic premise: click on some th...   read

Someone please take Clicker Heroes away from me before I play it all day

Dammit, it's Cookie Clicker all over again. Clicker Heroes is the new game that you won't be able to stop clicking (or at least paying attention to because you've got people to click for you). Clicker Heroes tasks you with sl...   read

Extrasolar Season 2 is being funded through Kickstarter

I do not envy Lazy 8 Studios with the balancing act it has trying to market Extrasolar. By revealing too little, only a relatively small demographic will ever try out the exoplanet rover simulator. By revealing too much, a tangible part of...   read

This trailer for Breath of Fire 6 is as pretty as I expected, but that's about it

This animated trailer is absolutely stunning, but it does not do much to enthuse me for Breath of Fire 6. Breath of Fire 6, subtitled Guardians of the White Dragon, is set to be published as an online, web-based role-playing game to d...   read

Are you bright enough to not run out of miles in Google's Smarty Pin?

Every now and then you can count on Google to come up with a solid time-waster. This is one of them. It's called Smarty Pins, and it'll have you dropping your Google Maps marker all over the world in the name of trivia. The idea behind Smar...   read

No Wave is a point-and-click game set in NY's music scene

Aside from videogames, music is my other big passion in life, whether it's just listening to it, going to gigs or reading about various bands or periods in music history. So when I got a message from the developers of No Wave, a short point...   read

Notch's Drowning in Problems game gets too real too quick
