Another 20 games rated, bringing the total to 60 so far :-) To celebrate this and the holidays, I’m making a list of the 5 most fun games I’ve played so far.

These are games that, for one reason or another, make you stick to them even after you played enough to be able to rate it. I was no longer playing just to review and rate the game, I was playing them because they were damn well FUN, and I hope you enjoy them too!

Here they go:

  • Stop him now – by TijmenTio

  • This is a reverse shooter game, where you select an enemy on the screen to control, and try to hit the good guy. The movements of the good guy are quite well done — he will more than once foil your tries at killing him. This challenge makes the game loads of fun, as you try different strategies with the different powered birds that show up.

  • The princess is Mine – by Emveyh

  • In this game, you control three villains that have to prevent good guys from reaching the princess. The controls are simple, and make the game highly dynamic, as you scramble to position your three servants. Power ups will appear at the corners of the board – can you spare one of your minions to go pick them up? And then your minions get hurt, and you have to move them away from the front lines while they heal – there is a lot of Micro to be done in this game!

  • Midboss – by Eniko

  • A very well done roguelike. You control an imp that can possess defeated enemies. It is possible to learn their skills, and you get to use their attributes for a while. The game is very difficult, as expected from a roguelike, and yet there is that feeling that victory is just around the corner if you play more carefully next time. The complexities of controlling different enemies are really interesting as well.

  • Dr. Vile and the greater good – by green pixel

  • This game is not only fun to play, it is very fun to watch as well, with its cute graphics and story. You are the under-appreciated evil genius, Dr. Vile, on a quest to gather materials to your evil gun. The game plays as a top down beat them up game. It is reasonably difficult, with a small but welcome component of knowing when to “aggro” your enemies.

  • Kill all earthlings – by savethejets1

KaE is a reverse space invaders. You control when the invaders shoot, and if they advance/retreat in their way down. This game has very cool visuals, including lots of “pew pew pew”s (a weakness of mine), and plenty of particle effects. It is also fast paced, and gives you a great feeling of “zerging” the defenders through sheer force of numbers. It is a bit on the easy side when you get the hang of it, but you will still have a lot of fun.
