Adventures Through Newgrounds’ Game Section!
It is no doubt there are some truly creative and amazing Flash games out there. Well, I was bored and so I decided to look around Newgrounds (http://www.newgrounds.com) and see what I could dig up. This article is the result of my findings. Enjoy!
Time Fcuk – A dark (and sometimes humorous) puzzle-platformer with a level editor.
The Love Letter – A quick yet challenging game in which you attempt to read a love letter while avoiding hordes of nosey kids.
One Chance – A dark, choice focused game in which you unleash a horrible, cell killing disease and you have to decide what to do with your last time on Earth.
Minecraft Tower Defense 2 – A Minecraft tower defense game where a Minecraft noob fights off hordes of Minecraft mobs. Why wasn’t this made before?
Straight Bullyism – A unique RPG in which you play as a bully trying to survive school.
This is the Only Level II – A platformer staring an elephant that only has one level – but you have to figure out all the ways to beat it.
TETRIS’D: The Game – An arcade game in which you are a stickman trying to avoid getting crushed by falling Tetris blocks – addictive and fun, just like the normal version of Tetris.
Infinite Ocean – An eerie sci-fi adventure game. NOTE: The game is available on Newgrounds although I couldn’t get it to work so…
Windows Doors – A fake OS making fun of Microsoft Windows. Quite humorous, creative and funny. More of a toy than a game but a work of genius nonetheless.
Get Closer – A weird puzzle game in which the objective is to… get closer!
Of course, there are lots more neat games to be found on there, as well as on other sites, so be sure to explore! If you find any neat ones, post about them in the comments section. If you didn’t know already, Newgrounds lets people post their own games so you may find the site a good place to get players for your Flash games. If I find more (I probably will) I may add a few more parts to this over the next little while and start a series.
