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.”

Wreckanoid by Connor

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.

Cosmic Crush by Connor

Cosmic Crush is a game of skill and dexterity where you maneuver a planet around space, trying to hit smaller ones and avoiding bigger ones, but this top down game has a trick up it’s sleeve, gravity. All objects in this game have gravity, and if you can keep your planet still, you can even attract the biggest planets towards you (not advised).

Cosmic 1

However this can come in handy if you are tying to esacpe from the grips of a large object and there is a smaller one near by, relax the controls untill it draws near, then keep still untill it’s draw to you, then use your increased mass to help get out of the tricky trap, also make use of slingshots with a pair of planets to speed you away from danger.

Cosmic 2

This is a trying game from my point of view but as it has no music, I’ll have to give it a 3/5.

This game can be played on Newgrounds
