Wednesday Webgame: Asteroids

Written by

Comments: --

Forget spaceships, aliens, nazis, and alien nazi spaceships, today you have been tasked with destroying the most powerful being in all of the Universe: the Internet. Redditor erikperik has hacked together a bookmarklet that allows you to commandeer Asteroids’ isosceles steed and unleash pixel-hell in your browser. Find a site. Launch the bookmarklet. Steer with the arrows keys. And destroy with the spacebar.

This simple javascript game finally allows you to let Berners-Lee know what you think of his quaint HTML: All your block-inline elements belong to us. Destroy your competitor’s site. Destroy Handshake. Destroy your Facebook. Today, you are the greatest Luddite man has ever seen.

Download the bookmarklet from Github to play.

Wednesday Webgame: Every Day the Same Dream

Written by

Comments: --

With a haunting soundtrack and a very quirky reward system, Every Day the Same Dream is exactly the kind of innovative webgame that reminds the user how a simple 10-minute game can evoke a strong response. Molleindustria, the creator of the game, describes Every Day the Same Dream as a an “existential game about alienation and refusal of labaour” or “a playable music video.” Both categorizations work, and yet neither quite captures the melodramatic quest the player performs in the game.

In the end, you simply have to play this game to understand it. But you might want to save this one for after you get off work. If the monotony of the daily turboencabulator jams is wearing on your sanity, the message of this game might just prove to be the breaking point.

Play the game at Molleindustria.

Wednesday Webgame: Pixel Purge

Written by

One lone, bubbly ship versus an unrelenting hoard of pixelated alien invaders — This is Pixel Purge!

Pixel Purge is a tough, little arcade shooter where you fly through space decimating flying enemies, snagging power-ups, and consuming the remains of destroyed alien ships like a rabid 8-bit-atarian. It’s these little pixels that allow you to level-up. The logic is simple: the bigger the enemy, the more pixels left behind to consume. By level 10 your screen will be so covered with enemy vampire ships and exploding space mines, you’ll be throttling the WASD keys to snake through tiny gaps and firing as fast as you can click on your way to grab that one power-up that might extend your life for another 30 seconds. It gets addictive.

Skip the introduction story: It’s unnecessary. Mute the music: It’s terrrible. And tell your boss you’re deleting viruses off your harddrive using McAfee’s new Button Masher 9000 Trojan Destroyer.

The game is available at Armor Games.

Wednesday Webgame: Victorian BMX

Written by

Comments: 1

Armed with your trusty scythe and your slightly inaccurate to the time period BMX, this Wednesday’s webagme, Victorian BMX, allows you to chop the heads off penny-farthing-riding dandies and bustle-dresssed, baby pushing dames, all while pulling down tricks and catching copious amounts of air.

The game, from This is Pop, is a good venture in the genre with a fun, metal soundtrack and enough interesting courses to force you to repeat levels with pinpoint button strikes.

So pop open an excel spreadsheet, put on that hard-at-work face, and play this while your boss thinks you are filing the daily TPS reports. It’s available at over on Adult Swim Games.
