Monday Mind Teasers: Retroid edition!

Whoa, who the frak is Fronz? Hi! Some of our long time readers might remember me as the first editor Niero hired back in 2006. I was the Editor-in-Chief in the interim between Robert Summa and Nick Chester, and later on I helped Matthew Raz...

No Man's Sky can't be spoiled

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 game means you can...

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...

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...

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...

Monday Mind Teasers: Word Dynamo

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've had this won...

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 ...

Monday Mind Teasers: Happy 4th of July!

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 the disguised gam...

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 planning out wh...

Monday Mind Teasers: Z-Type, Word Shoot, Ys Typing Tutor

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 daily basis I'll ha...

Monday Mind Teasers: Super PSTW RPG

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 out on a three mi...

Monday Mind Teaser: Sembeo sound matrix

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 axis information y...

Monday Mind Teasers! Doodle Devil

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 just a glorified...

Monday Mind Teasers: Depict1

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 just 48 hours! ...

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

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 get to terrorize ...

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 Japanese, I didn...

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 this game onli...

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 taken in by so m...

Monday Mind Teaser: The Company of Myself

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 with like-mind...

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 up against such...

Monday Mind Teasers: Closure

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 in the PAX 10 ...

Monday Mind Teasers: Starmageddon

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 week I decided ...
