Game: Smashback

Review: This game is breakout in 3D. There's not much to figure out, just bounce back the ball against a tile, every tile= a point. Now this game is fun to begin with but get's very boring very fast.

But the worst thing that I can say that the ball half the time leaves the area where you can hit it before it comes to you. This makes the game to frustrating. That shows the lazyness of the developer.

Game: RaidenX

Review: This is one of the best flash games ever. It is a overhead multi-directional space shooter and it is a tribute to the classic Raiden I and II. This game is non-stop action with a ton of enimies always on screen, but there are lots of different weapons with power-ups to help you. There are 7 levels, each with it's own unique enimies and boss battles. The background visuals are plain, but you can forgive that because of the nicely detailed enimies and bosses, and hey it's a flash game.

The weapons are very cool, with 3 different kinds and the ability to power up 5 times, it can get crazy. There is even a power that let's you hit all enimies on screen with one bounce shot!

The music is very suitable. It really takes you back to the 16-bit days.

To sum it up, this is a unbelievable game to check out, I highly recommend it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Game: XRaye

Review: One thing that is missing in a lot of of videogames games today, even flash games, is originality. That's one thing this game has. XRaye is a puzzler where you are the clip with two ends and you have to go through the various levels and get through all the obstacles to light up all the pegs. That's pretty much the whole game, but the interesting thing is you really never get bored of it, it's just not that exciting.

There are a lot of good things I can say about it. There graphics are very good for this style of game. The music is some of the best ever, It has this soft haunting music, it's really cool. An it's a fresh new concept for a game, (even though I don't think it's flash).

There is one bad thing to say that will want to make you smash your monitor over your head. The passwords for a level come after you beat that level. So if you spend like 30 minutes beating a level then you lose quickly the next level, you have to start from the level before the one you lost on.

Bottom Line: A fun game if it doesn't piss you off.

another awesome game

This isn't a flash game but it's a sequel to a game that all of us know and love.

Game: Bejeweled 2

Review: This is the same Bejeweled we know and love but it has some minor changes. It has 2 new ways to rid of jewels, a power gem which explodes, and hyper gem which destroys every kind of the same gem that you switched it with.

Another edition is the breathtaking backgrounds which is sort of out of place, and there is a creepy announncer guy, but there a nice edition. Now the new editions don't take away anything from the game, but they don't really add anything either, but there is a puzzle mode. In the end they kept the huge core of the game, and that's a good thing.

Bottom Line: Better than the first, just not as revolutionary.

Game: Heli attack 3

Review: To sum it up, this is what heli attack 2 should have been, but because not a lot of people have played number 2 I'll start from the top.

Heli attack is a side scrolling shooter where the point is to destroy the helicopters that are attacking you, hence the name. In number 2 there was only one area, one set of planes, few weapons, and the point was to shoot till you die. This time around, there are 4 different missions, each with a different area and 4 levels in each mission. It varies from the jungle, mountains, and later labs (even though I didn't make it that far.

The weapon selection is unbelievable, over 20 different weapons includong, rocket launchers, flamethrowers, tazers, rpgs and more. The music and sound effects are okay, they could be better.

Bottom Line: A good game to waste some time on.

P.S. A sequel to RaidenX is coming so if you haven't played the first, play it.

Games: Circuit racer, mountain bike madness, switch wakeboarding.

Review: I'm reviewing these games together because it is easy to sum them up, no there not flash but they are the worst attempts at 3D ever. Plain enviroments, god awful designs, unresponsive controls, and they worst collision dectection ever. Combine that with the glitchyness of the game and you got your self one heck of a headache. Everything in the game has not be tuned, you can repeatedly see the games texture maps, and you can fall into nowhere and just be stuck in pure white background. In circuit racer I hit a wall and my car flew into the air and out of the games playable area and got stuck. In switch wakeboarding do bother getting out of the way of anything, most of the time you just go right through it, that is if you don't get stuck half way, and don't get me starting on the biking game. These 3 games come from splashworks.com and they really need a kick in the *** and a slap in the face. Oh and the music blows too.

Bottom Line: Pure garbage, avoid at all costs

Game: Sudoku

Review: This is the best puzzle game out there, much more enjoyable then bejeweled 2. Sudoku is a puzzle game that really challenges the mind. The game consists of a board with numbers on it form 1-9. The rest of the board is empty spaces that you have to fill with those numbers. The challenge is that every row, column, and 3x3 square as to have the numbers 1-9 without any doubles. There are 3 different difficultly modes to challenge you at every level. New puzzles are added everyday, so it never gets old. The graphics are just plain old 2D, nothing special and there is no music just the sound of chirping birds. The bird noises though are soothing and having no music is a good thing because it doesn't distract and annoy you.

Bottom Line: A very fun and original puzzler that will never get old.

Game: Trapped 5

Review: Never as an action puzzler been this fun and exciting. Trapped 5 is the fifth in this puzzle series, and the best. The trapped series in general always felt like it was trying to rip off classic zelda and it is. The point of the game is to get out of the dungeon that your trapped in. The design, enimies and bosses really feel like the original zelda dungeons. You have one attack, leaving bombs, to destroy the many enimies. Now the first 5-10 minutes will leave you frustrated but keep on playing and it will draw you in. The graphics are old school and the different music choices will get you pumped to finish it. Myself, I spent an 1 and a 1/2 straight without taking a break, it's that addicting. Stick to it and you will succeed.

Bottom Line: The best action/puzzle flash game ever.
