charming retro dragonslair style flash click game

Hello! And welcome to Dungeon Escape, my very silly and very low-budget flash tribute to the classic laserdisc games like Dragon's Lair, Space Ace, and Super Don Quixote (well, that last one's not quite so famous, but it holds fond childhood memories for me). At the moment there are many rooms missing, but I'm constantly adding more, so check back from time to time.

This wonderful creation has now reach final status.. I don't know how many rooms there are, but there are a lot.

Curator Defense Downloadable Free Game

My younger brother suggests Curator Defense - looks pretty silly to me :)

Really nice free downloadable game for windows, in the genre where you choose and place automated defenses to defend a swarm of invaders.

This game gets my vote as best casual game of the year (even though it is from 2005 - it's so good i vote for it in 2006!)

Flow - extremely cool flash game that has touches of "spore" in it

By now many people have seen this compelling proof-of-concept game..

Orboxb - Nice simple but hard flash puzzle game - Very Addictive

quite nice! just use cursor keys to move.

Your goal is to guide your 'box' from start-point to end-point. The catch? You can only move in the four cardinal directions and you will only be stopped once striking an object. Don't worry, none of the other objects move or can hurt you, but that will hardly make your job any easier. As pure puzzle solving game with 30 levels, this one isn't the most innovative game you'll play this week, but it could very well be one of the most mind-bending.

How can you not love this game.. dripping with style and character..
great loading screen too. I *loved* it.  Very droll.

Being a parrot Beakings can't simply go to a restaurant and order a Mango.
Instead he has to climb a tree packed with animals trying to prevent our hero from stealing their mango.

You'll waste far too much time on it... Especially if you like Risk or Diplomacy.

Flash Sniper Game

In this game, you play a sniper. (The game should therefore be considered mature due to the violence).

Tower Defence: Flash Game of the Day

Screenshot - 12_18_2006 , 9_59_41 PM_thumb.png
Here's a fun little game for you to relax a bit with. Enjoy it.

This game is based on the popular Warcraft3 "Element Tower Defence" and the Starcraft Turret Defence" gameplay. The object of the game is to prevent the hordes (waves) of monsters from getting to the castle by building element towers near the path.

Screenshot - 12_13_2006 , 2_40_31 PM_thumb.png
This is a deep game which sets the standard of the arrow shooting genre..

Your kingdom is under attack! Defend against the incoming invading Trev'Ghar -- an evil medieval army attempting to eradicate your peaceful civilization. You are armed with a legendary bow and can use a variety of spells and different types of magical arrows to defeat your enemy. Use strategy to prioritize your targets and exploit their weaknesses. You'll even be able to summon allied units to help you in battle! The war has just begun and the odds are against you but once again the time has come for you to be The BowMaster...


Productivity killer: Line Rider

line rider.jpg
What crude line-art flash game is getting more search hits on Google than Kim Jong Il? It's called Line Rider.
Part Jackass stunt, part physics lesson, Line Rider encourages users to "draw" their own ramps, hills, and slopes with a pencil tool, then sends a virtual sledder (wearing a red scarf) along the route until he swoops, swerves and crashes. Build an elaborate enough course and you'll feel like a little kid playing in the snow again, zooming downhill, popping up in the air, wiping out on a ramp jump a la Evel Knievel.

Weboggle: Play Boggle Online

Screenshot - 11_18_2006 , 6_47_56 PM_thumb.png
If you can't find your old Boggle game, you're in luck!

When the timer starts, each player searches the assortment of letters for words of three letters or more (four or more on the 5x5 board). When you find a word, type it into the blank and press the ENTER key.

Words are formed from adjoining letters. Letters must join in the proper sequence to spell a word. They may join horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, to the left, right, or up-and-down. No letter cube, however, may be used more than once within a single word.

This is really well done, and fun too!

Scribble: Flash Game of the Day

Draw steps to help the creatures get over objects.


If you ever played lemmings this will feel familiar

Brainsplatters 2: Flash Game of the Day

Screenshot - 10_26_2006 , 6_47_18 AM_thumb.png
As you might infer from the title, this game has some violence and so may not be suitable for children. It's a very low budget indie thing but it has some real personality, and it's a kind of hybrid of the "real-time click on the flash spot type game" like dragonslayer, and a more open ended thing. 


Amazing Flash Stickman Shooter Platformer (WPN Fire)

Screenshot - 10_22_2006 , 12_48_26 PM_thumb.png
WPN Fire:
This one plays beautifully and is just oozing quality.  Tons of satisfying weapons, tons of shooting, jumping, murder and mayhem.. If you're into that kind of thing. The cartoony graphics, special effects, and audio are some of the best i've seen ever.  Gorgeous.

The game has tons of additional modes of play which are really interesting.. Really quality stuff.  :up:

Domino Pressure: Flash Game of the Day

Click a domino to knock down the stack and crush the tomato.

Seconds are taken off the next round for any remaining dominoes. Seconds are added if you knock them all down, quickly. Game ends if you run out of time. Click a tomato on the lower right to pass.


Ball Revamped I through IV - One of the Most Addictive Flash Game Series Ever

Screenshot - 10_17_2006 , 5_07_09 AM_thumb.png
Latest Edition:

Ball Revamped IV

Four months was spent on this installation of the Ball Revamped series, this time with a 100 new levels, 20 power ups, 8 different obstacles, 2 bosses, level codes, and a high score list. Bringing it back to the old style of gameplay, Ball Revamped IV: Amplitude is definitely a notch above the others in the series.

Previous Editions (all different!):
Ball Revamped III: Gemini
Ball Revamped III: Andromeda
Ball Revamped II: Metaphysik
Ball Revamped I

This is a perfect example of simple gameplay, a simple concept, and an extremely addictive result.  It's almost impossible to play a level once and not feel immediately compelled to keep playing until you beat it (I feel certain someone should write an article on why this is so).

STICKMAN SAM 4: Fantastically Good Flash Platform Game

mycaps Screenshot - 003 , 03_02_AM , Sep 09 2006_thumb.png
This is the best "stickman" style game i've played and it controls like a dream and feels like it's going to be a really rich and satisfying game, with some real character.  Damn these flash coders are really making some nice games..  The cutscreens have great humour too.  The screenshot does not do this game justice.


Note: this is only for people who like platform games with serious control schemes.  You will have to use the tutorial modes to learn the controls.

From a progammer's standpoint, this is a really nice example of well-coded movement dynamics.

Avoider! Extremely Clever and Whimsical Flash Game

mycaps Screenshot - 002 , 01_18_PM , Jul 25 2006_thumb.png
Ok, this has to be my favorite web flash "game" in the last couple of weeks.  I think the term "meta" might be appropriate.  It's really clever and whimsical.  I won't spoil it for you, but give it a try and see what you think.
