Yep, Line Rider is still good as hell

A few days ago, YouTube recommended me some video for Line Rider, a monstrously effective time-waster I haven't thought about in close to a decade. Like most of these automated suggestions, I only gave the video's title a glance before movi...

There's going to be a Clicker Heroes 2

I escaped the clutches of Clicker Heroes once, and I'll do it again. It was my favorite of the time-wasting, dopamine-releasing idle games. It got me real good. Now, a sequel is underway for next year. It's a substantial step up, visually ...

Terry Cavanagh releases his next game, Tiny Heist

Terry Cavanagh is the man behind VVVVVV and Super Hexagon. Even if you've never played those games, you've probably heard about their extreme difficulty. While I love VVVVVV and have since surmounted most of its challenges, I'm still perple...

These retro X-Men games are truly terrible

Bless 'em for trying, but the retro inspired mini-games 20th Century Fox cooked up to promote X-Men: Apocalypse are pretty damn terrible. Tenuously tied to the film as a throwback to the '80s when the movie is set, Retro X: Arcade is a set ...

Nintendo pulls plug on fan-made Zelda browser game

Remember that voxel Zelda browser game we told you about? The fan-made tribute crafted without Nintendo's permission? The one all the game websites were talking about? Surely you know where I'm going with this, right? It took just a couple ...

Whip up a sweet wallpaper with Mario Maker

Nintendo has a cool little web app that lets you create wallpapers for your phone or computer, Mario Maker style. It's only in Japanese, for now, but I'm confident you'll be able to find your way around. This tool isn't nearly as extensive ...
