Thread for time-wasting flash games.
« on: May 10, 2006, 12:59:48 PM »
Since Mouser and others seem to be very good at finding TWFG's, maybe we ought to have a separate thread or even forum heading for them. Here's my addition:
http://www.yarukinok...t/flash/pendulumeca/
To get started, click and hold your mouse button which will send a cable to the roof for Pendulumeca to swing from. Too short, and he doesn't swing far. Too long, and he swings to the spikey floor. When he swings forward a bit, let go the mouse button and Pendulumeca will go flying. gravity will eventually bring him down and you will have to send another cable to continue swinging with. See how far you can swing Pendulumeca. I got 507 meters so far....

You really made a good submission, Pendulumeca is a great game!

cool routing puzzle game - sure to fry your nerves

Quote
Global Player is a Flash game designed to test your skills at sorting packages and routing them to their proper destinations. Everything in the game is color coded, which is great unless you are colorblind as there is no provision for colorblindness in this game.

So, provided that you can indeed tell the difference between the colored packages, each level consists of a system of conveyor belts and switches, giving way to multiple destinations where transportation awaits to receive each package and send it on its way. The key is to route each colored package to the vehicle indicated by the same color. Click on the large arrow swiches where the conveyor belts intersect to change the direction the packages pass through.

Wait a minute.  Shouldn't the competition be about how much TIME was wasted playing these games?  Now, there's a competition I would have a chance of winning.

I haven't gone so far as to contemplate suicide over a game, but read this article if you are worried.
Spoiler
BEIJING (Reuters) - The parents of a 13-year-old boy who killed himself after playing a computer game for 36 hours are suing the game's licensed Chinese distributor for 100,000 yuan ($12,500), a Chinese newspaper reported on Thursday.

In 2004, Zhang Xiaoyi, from the northern Chinese city of Tianjin, jumped out of a window of his family's 24th floor apartment after playing Warcraft at an internet cafe.

His parents said in a legal writ that China Cyber Port Co. Ltd.'s failure to clearly warn of the inherent "dangers" of Warcraft -- a game produced by American company Blizzard Entertainment -- was responsible for their son's death, the Beijing Times reported.

"In America, Warcraft has a 'T' rating, where it's only suitable for children over 13... but we weren't aware," the paper quoted the parents as saying.

The parents said that China Cyber Port clearly knew that the "violent" and "bloody" content of Warcraft was unsuitable for minors.

They should have warned people about the risks of addiction and "taken measures to prevent players' from over-indulging themselves," they said.

Apart from seeking damages, the parents demanded that packaging and materials for all Warcraft games distributed in China refer to the game's "level of violence" and have clear, written health warnings.

"This is a public interest case," said Zhang Chunliang, an online addiction activist, in support of the parents.

"We are appealing to the country to build a healthy and complete game regulation system."

Computer and online gaming has exploded in China in recent years, with an estimated 13.8 million people taking part.

Amid growing concern that more and more young people are becoming hooked, China has issued a raft of regulations aimed at curbing excessive game playing at internet cafes and heavily fining owners that admit minors.

 
When you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning - Catherine Aird

agh. Global Player. My eyes crossed before I wasted too much time. Reminds me some of Simutrans. Nice game, abandoned development. Here's a low-key but very time-wasting puzzle game: String avoider
http://www.newground...m/portal/view/300760
Quote
Avoid colliding with walls and guide your string through each unique level. Time is of the essence as you must steadily travel through 26 levels to victory. Keep your hand steady and move it quickly, hoping your compulsive hand activities will pay off and make you one of the top 50.
I'm not much for violent games, but this one from the same folks was strangely entertaining...
Dad 'n Me
http://www.newground...m/portal/view/254456
Basically you're the purple-costumed child of a purple-costumed super-villain and you beat up kids on the playground. Some of them fight back...

Try these, I nearly drove myself batty for... well... way too long before giving up. What you're doing is clicking on things to get them to do a rube-goldberg sort of scenario to achieve a goal. If you're nice, I'll tell you how I found the solution...

When that drives you crackers, go to the next one...
