Link Dump Fridays

JohnBThis week's introductory paragraph was eaten by my dog. Of course, I don't have a dog, so that makes my excuse a bit awkard. Hopefully the game feast below will distract you from my folly.

  • pactxt.gifPac-Txt - It's all the goodness of Pac-Man, now in text adventure form! If you thought eating pellets and being chased by ghosts was fun, wait until you do it from a command prompt. It's a textually amazing treat!
  • splume.gifSplume - A polished and creative take on the match-3 Bust-A-Move puzzle genre, only this time a gooey physics engine is tacked on. Fire cute little orbs to the top of the screen and try to stick three of the same color together. Later levels introduce some very wacky puzzles to complete. You have to install a small plug-in and some users report occasional mouse locking during play, but it's worth it to experience the fresh take on an old game.
  • treasurecutlass.gifTreasure of Cutlass Reef - The pirate's life isn't for me, but it's fun to pretend, right? Treasure of Cutless Reef puts you in charge of a pirate ship on the high seas battling other ships for survival. And for gold! Defeat wave after wave of foes and use your plunder between levels to upgrade your weapons.
  • wiipicross.gifWiiPicross - Picross is one of my favorite puzzles, and WiiPicross brings it to the comfort of my Wii-enabled living room. The game features large, blocky graphics that are easy to select with the Wiimote. With over 1,300 puzzles to date, I won't be bored anytime soon. Even if you don't own a Wii, WiiPicross plays just fine from your web browser.
  • invisiblebeard.gifThe Invisible Beard of Contemplation - An online riddle game similar to God Tower and Ouverture Facile, all you have to do is fill in the blanks with the answer to the question. Sounds easy, right? Not exactly. Clues come from the strangest places, if you can find them, that is.
  • practicechapped.gifPractice Chapped - Side-scrolling beat-em-ups such as the classic Double Dragon and Final Fight are a dying genre. Practice Chapped looks to reclaim a corner of the field with a great looking anime-styled brawler. Sure, it's mostly tapping the [J] key as fast as you can, but veteran Battletoads fans will appreciate the nostalgic nod. And everyone will appreciate the strange sense of humor.
  • frantic.gifFrantic - A rather good-looking 3D first person shooter right in your browser window. For the most part, Frantic ditches traditional level layouts in favor of waves of enemies versus you, guy with a gun. Collect power-ups and dispatch the alien enemies to a rockin' soundtrack, or use your own tunes to provide the score.

Treasure of Cutlass Reef looked good, but a sailing ship game without wind? What's the point? The way these ships turn on a sixpence I'm surprised they don't have a reverse gear. Also turning your ship head-on to the enemy to present a smaller target is not generally considered good naval tactics as the enemy cannonballs that do hit then go all the way through your ship ("raking fire") killing and maiming along the way.

Please please please could someone reveal how you get through level 10 (the 'spray' level...mmm...) on Splume? This game is the most amazing discovery for someone who spends far too much time playing puzzle bobble and bubble shooter - amazing graphics, brilliant twists on the old theme...but level 10 has me stumped!

Jumpy, I hope this helps:

On the wheel, you need to build up a string of enough bubbles to attach to the turquoise bubbles behind the wall. The last bubble on the string should be turquoise, so that it explodes the bubbles behind the wall. After that you can eliminate the bubbles on the wheel, and then the one on the back wall.

Splume is gorgeous! I'm thoroughly impressed by the care put into the emotional interactions between the balls (e.g. the hearts and the the angry eyebrows), the sounds, the physics of the drooping and bending of the structures and the way the fired balls bounce off one another.

This game has built upon the bust-a-move theme in so many inventive ways that it's a completely new experience.

Perhaps it suggests the next game design contest theme: "Reimagine a classic".

Partial Walkthrough for The Invisible Beard of Contemplation. I'll post more levels as I figure them out. Also, the clues range from very ambiguous to morem specific as you reveal the spoilers.

Level 1

Hover your mouse over the blank space at the end of the sentence.

Level 1?

http://www.imdb.com has lots of information on movies.

Search for Harrison Ford, not Jack Ryan :p

Don't click this unless you want the Answer:

Patriot Games

Level 2

The question relates directly to the picture.

Do the people remind you of anyone? They should.

Did you watch the Matrix?

Keanu Reeves was in another excellent movie. What was that called?

The caption of the image is a quote from the movie spoken of above.

Answer:

69

Level 2?

Remember the movie you got the previous answer from? What band are the main characters in?

The clue given to you on the last page helps some.

"Wyld West" was the clue, although that's not the answer.

A quick visit to Wikipedia gave me the answer.

Answer:

Wyld Stallyns

Level 3

Does the pink dead thing remind you of a toy you've seen?

It's not the entire toy, but just the head shown.

The name of the toy is also the answer and it's two words.

Kill The Toy is an important clue to the answer.

Try asking Anna Gramme if you don't know what to do with the clue.

Answer:

Kill The Toy is an anagram of Hello Kitty

Level 3?

Hello Kitty also has a wikipedia article, which is a great help here.

Look under the heading "Hello Kitty as a character".

Answer:

Mimmy

Level 4

Look at the picture upside down to get clue #1

Straus is one half of a popular brand of something. Maybe you've heard of it.

The clue "Fit for a King" looks like it's made of a fabric...

Perhaps denim, as in jeans

Levi Straus is the popular brand of jeans.

Think of a famous king that has something to do with Levi Straus.

This famous king was famous for his music

The answer can be found by plucking letters from the phrase "Levi Straus"

Answer:

Elvis

Level 4?

Who was Elvis engaged to? Her name is the answer.

Elvis' article on Wikipedia tells you who found his body.

Answer:

Ginger Alden

Level 5

Knowing the name of this tapestry might help.

Google is definitely your friend on this one.

The clue in the upper right corner is what you should search for.

My favorite number is 4, is yours?

In case you didn't get that, click the fourth link >.>

Two kings are fighting in this video. What are their names?

Of William and Harold, which one dies?

Answer:

King Harold

Level 5?

Search google for the tapestry's name.

Be sure to include the word "dogs" after the name.

Answer:

55

Level 6

One of the words is spelled incorrectly. Look for it.

You could use a dictionary, but you should know the answer just by looking at it.

Answer:

Only one word is spelled "Incorrectly"

Level 6?

I like Google. It's my best friend.

Odessa is an album, but it's also a song.

Answer:

Veronica

Level 7

All of the images shown are logos for companies.

If you take the first letter of each company, it forms another company.

This company makes a product you use every day.

The product is on your car.

The company in question makes tires, although they spell it differently

They spell it 'Tyres'.

Answer:

Dunlop

Level 7?

You'll need to know a thing or two about Monty Python. If you don't, use Google.

This particular question references the movie "The Final Rip-Off"

When you find the right page, you'll know where to look.

Answer:

wankel rotary engine

Level 8

For those of you who hate algebra, you might want to get help from someone who doesn't.

The answer is really simple, just solve for y.

Simply the equation down to 4y = 16x

Divide both sides by 4 to get y = 4x

Unfortunately, 4x is not the answer. You'll need to use 4x to search Google though.

The place featured on this level is a pub. What do pubs commonly serve?

Hint: It's an alchoholic beverage.

Once you've searched Google, the answer is in plain sight.

If you really still need help, try Googling what's in the next spoiler

beer 4x

Answer:

Castlemaine

Level 8?

Wikipedia knows the answer. Turn to it for help.

Don't go to the article on Castlemaine, instead go to the specific brand of beer.

Answer:

Mr. Fourex

Level 9

Do these coat of arms look familiar?

If you've ever watched Harry Potter, they should.

Also, you'll know that there are four houses in Harry Potter, not 3.

What is the name of the one house missing?

Answer:

Gryffindor

Level 9?

While looking up info for the previous part, you'll probably stumble across this.

If you didn't, check Wikipedia's article on Hogwarts.

Answer:

Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus

Level 10

The food shown is known by everybody. What is it?

Peanuts is a food, but it's also a comic strip.

If you've read the comics, you might know the character who talks like that.

He often hangs out around Snoopy.

Answer:

Woodstock

Level 10?

The answer must related to Masons and be the name of a Peanuts character.

What did the Freemasons use to keep their secrets?

They used ciphers.

Answer:

Level 11

The answer actually has very little to do with glue factories.

Mouse over the horse and see what happens.

Did you hear about any famous horses that disappeared?

When something or somebody disappears, they might be kidnapped.

Answer:

Shergar

Level 11?

Mister Ed has a Wikipedia article.

The name is briefly mentioned at the very top of the article.

Answer:

Bamboo Harvester

Level 12

The phrase is like a crossword clue.

Two numbers in ( ) following a crossword clue means the answer has two words

Each of the numbers in ( ) is the number of letters

Think of a plant with two words, in the form xxxxxx xxx.

The plant isn't really lethal.

Answer:

Poison Ivy

Level 12?

A quick visit to Wikipedia will give you the answer.

Again, don't look under the obvious article.

Uma Thurman plays "The Bride".

The article you should check is Deadly Viper Assassin Squad, if you hadn't figured that out

The answer involves no math.

The question is more of a trick question.

Answer:

Octopi don't have tentacles, so the answer is "none"

The numbers by themselves are meaningless, convert them to letters.

How might you convert numbers on a phone to letters?
