Halo CTF by Connor

Halo CTF is a side-scrolling capture-the-flasg parrody of the Capture the Flag mode in Halo’s multi-player mode. Although it has no multi-player mode, it is excedingly fun to play and with the changeable win settings.

The only downsides are that the gun on the warthog cannot hit any of the enemy troops and that getting out of the warthog is not as easy as getting in and getting in doesn’t always work.

This game, although fun, has quite a few glitches even a year and 8 months after production. I’ll give it 3/5 and I’m waiting for Halo CTF 2.

Play it on Newgrounds.

Boxhead: More Rooms is the sequel to Boxhead: The Rooms and is bursting with zombie-killing goodness. This is one sequal that lives up to the expectations of is forebearer.

SS0002

The core element of the game hasn’t been changes, shoot zombies, get weapons, kill more zombies with new weapons, but now, you have the beast, an incarnation of the devil, to worry about.

SS0003

He has the ablitily to fore fireballs at you, but don’t worry too much, now you have health, so you can last longer. Finally, there are more rooms for you to choose from, so now more carnage!

I’ll give this game 5/5 for it’s addicitve gameplay, brilliant ideas and following the line set by it’s predecessor.

Imminent by Connor

Imminent is a defence game with a rather unnerving extra. It has two modes, victory, and defeat In victory, you fight for victory after 40 levels, but in defeat, you fight to survive and to last out while the enemies whittle away your last defence, this is endless. This is what defence games are about.

By aiming with the mouse, you control the turret, one gun standing between you and defeat. There are two sets of numbers at the bottom, the lower one is your cash, you use this to buy upgrades (the repair button works on mouseover not mousedoen so when you put the mouse over it, it repairsyou automaticly) and new guns. The upper number is your amour level, the first, your current armour, the second, your total armour. The Number at the top indicates the level you are on. For each mode, there are three difficulty settings for each mode: Victory is Normal, Great and Grand. Defeat is Eventual, Near and Imminent.

This game is a genre setting game, defence games should not be a set fight untill some set goal, yet some are like that and this can be rewarding, but, most are last stands, where deffeat is enevitable and your efforts can nly delay it. This game is gold. 5/5.

Rapid Reactions Master by Connor

Filed under: Gadget, Online, reactions

Rapid Reactions Master is a reactions tester to test you all. It requires not just clicking when a sound goes off, but co-orination and some intelligence. It has three stages – load – fire – maintain.

In Load, you have to pull the cartridge up, pull the cocking bar back and forwards, then fire once.
In Fire, you have to fire three times
In Maintain you have to pull the cocking bar forwards, the cartridge down, click the cocking assambally, click the trigger twice and pull down the magasine.

This game is very simple and with the practice section, can become very addictive, but can become stale. Ill give it 3/5.

Line Rider by Connor

Line Rider is one of the most amazing things you can leagally do on the internet. It is a game where you draw a line with all manner of loops bends jumps and pitfalls and then press play and watch this little guy on a sledge with a scarf go down it with no worry for his own saftey, and most likely, die. The best way for me to explain this is by showing some You-Tube videos of what you can do with it. I’ll give it 4.5/5. Here is a quote from the official page showing you just how much people like it.

“Line Rider is at once a model of every man, and also an individual for whom we should hold great regard. His is a fate drawn on a blank slate, sure in path but difficult in execution. His path is frought with difficult and sometimes impossible obstacles which all end, ultimately, in certain death.
Yet, alone, he faces these tasks head on without complaint or objection. He merely blinks at such fatally dire consequences as pixel-crushing jump, staggering boredom (should he stall on course) and infinite chasm. Only by the tack of his scarf do we know his trajectory in the chalk white matrix.
God speed, Line Rider.
Think of his three pixel kids sitting at home, and his wife, who knit him the scarf.”

Game of the Month February: Madness Interactive by Connor

Filed under: Action, Game of the Month, Mini-game, Moddable, Offline, Online, Shooting, Stratagy

Edit: I Know that it isn’t febuary, but this deserves it!

Madness Interactive is a game based on the much popular Madness Series. It has three modes: Story mode (New Game), Challenge mode and Experiment mode.

In Story mode, you fight your way into the sheriffs office as he has taken your pie. This is very difficult but well worth it. One of the highlights is when Jesus appears with a machine gun, resurrecting FBI and shooting down at you. The best way to kill him is to use an automatic weapon whilst jumping out of the way of zombies.

Madness 1

 

In Challenge mode, you play one of four mini games to unlock cheats:

In Matrix you try to unlock newyorkminute, the unlimited bullet time cheat. You must kill lots and lots of smiths to unlock this, or just go to Options > Cheats and enter newyoukminute.

In Zombies you unlock willis, the invincible cheat. You must kill zombies, people and a weaker Jesus. To cheat your way, go to Options > Cheats and enter willis.

In Lasers you unlock guide, the laser guide cheat. You shoot lasers with a pistol and a jetpack, this one is mesured by time. To cheat your way, go to Options > Cheats and enter guide.

In Knifing Around you unlock armstrong, the arm lengthening cheat. You have to throw knives at a dummy, you have one minute, if the knife hits the floo, you lose a point, if it hits you get a point, if it misses, nothing happens. To cheat your way, go to Options > Cheats and enter armstrong.

I’ll give this a 5/5 and Game of the Month February

Wreckanoid by Connor

Filed under: Action, Console, Online, Physics

Wreckanoid looks, at first sight, this is just a copy of Super Breakout, or Arkanoid. But once you have played it, you will see that this is a little gem. There are multiple power-ups, including morters, miniguns, rockets, wider padles, solar mode (carnage, mwa ha ha ha ha) and chainsaws. As well as being incredible fun to play, this game is Wi-compatible. But this game gets boring after about twenty mins. I’ll give it 4/5.
