    Short artistic flash game with an interesting game mechanic

    This short game is available to play on Kongregate and other flash gaming sites. It has a point and click style, similar to that of the original Monkey Island. The style is retro pixilated graphics, but they are very wel... Read Full Review

    Rose & Camellia

    Good concept but about two seconds of gameplay. Use a real mouse.

    Basically this is a beat-em-up game, set in what looks like a mock Edwardian era house between two aristocratic women. It is Pride and Prejudice and Street Fighter combined. You have to slap your opponent to regain your ... Read Full Review

    Dangeresque - Roomisode 1: Behind the Dangerdesque

    Witty dialog and retro graphics make this game enjoyable, but frustrating controls hold it back.

    This game was the precursor to Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People. Strong Bad plays Dangeresque, a private detective. His boss won't let him out of the room until his latest case is solved. Thus, the entire gam... Read Full Review

    Decay - Part 1

    Atmospheric point and click, very cheap, give it a go!

    I recently bought this game on XBOX live arcade. Only the first part is on at the moment, so if you cant stand suspense, wait until it all comes out. I liked this game a lot, it is very creepy and subtle. It is similar t... Read Full Review

    Geddit? It's a flash game! No really, its very good, play it!

    Closure is an atmospheric monochrome platformer with puzzle-filled levels. I first played this game on Kongregate, where it is freely available. You start off next to a wrecked car, and it is somewhat ambiguous whether o... Read Full Review

    Fan service jokes and obtuse puzzles make this game less fun than its predecessor

    As with the Secret of Monkey Island, I remember this when it first came out, and if you thought that 4 floppy disks was unreasonable, this one was on 11. You had to switch disks every time you switched island, and as you... Read Full Review

    Lavish artwork and a spectacular score makes the first voice acted Monkey Island a game worth playing by everyone.

    I have played all the monkey Island games to date, and I can remember when they all came out. I remember the agonising wait for Monkey Island 3, and what a reward it was when it finally came. A radical departure from teh... Read Full Review

    The Secret of Monkey Island

    A good start to a great series, witty and fun to play.

    I played this game when it first came out (on 4 floppy disks!), and I have been a fan of the franchise ever since. The premise is simple, you are a young man (origin unknown), looking to become a pirate by carrying out... Read Full Review

    An avatar based chat room, empty of people and activity, but full of adverts.

    Conceptually brilliant, but flawed controls made it unplayable

    Everything about this game intrigued me, from the minimalist title, to the setting of a hospital netherworld. The concept was ambitious, a game you had to finish in 4 hours, or you failed. I thought that was brilliant, a... Read Full Review

    This game, although listed as a 3d Platformer, is actually nearer a "flight sim" or more accurately a time trial racing game. You can play as either of two characters, a boy called Elliot, or a girl called Claris. If you... Read Full Review
