Link Dump Fridays

JohnBJust like the previous two Link Dump Friday features, this week we have a boatload of games to keep your fingers twitching. Unlike the previous articles, however, this one has a tasty breakfast treat I have long been calling for: WAFFLES!!! *confetti*

  • icon_switch2.gifSwitch - Not to be confused with that other game we reviewed called Switch, this Switch is a simple mouse collect/avoid game where you toggle cursor colors to nab all the floating orbs on the screen.
  • icon_treasureinthedark.gifTreasure in the Dark - A captivating game based on a simple but unique concept. Your goal is to move to the treasure in each stage, avoiding the walls as you travel. The catch is you only get a few seconds of light to see where the walls are, forcing you to use the grid as a guide.
  • icon_orbitrunner.gifOrbit Runner - Instead of blasting a rocket into space and picking your way through gravitational fields to a goal, your job is to position the sun so the planets maintain a steady orbit for a set amount of time. The interesting twist is that the game is less about moving around a lot and more about finding a cozy spot and staying put. At least, in the beginning it is...
  • icon_crickler.gifCrickler - It's like a crossword, but not! The clues consist of sentences with words missing, grabbed from various news stories, and your job is to fill in the blanks. As you solve the easy clues, letters pop up in the harder ones, making them solvable. There's several new puzzles each day, and the difficulty adjusts to your solving skill.
  • icon_idontevenknow.gifI Don't Even Know - Ok, so it's not a real game, but it does a sufficient job making fun of TEH INTERNETS and minigame-type Flash titles in one swoop, so it's worth a few minutes and a couple of laughs. All you have to do is follow the instructions on each screen!
  • icon_waffles.gifWaffles - I asked, and so I received! Waffles have been delivered to me! I can also eat toast that has been made in a toaster. Note the waffle guy to the right. Waffles.

I like Switch. I can actually get through a lot of its levels, but at the same time they aren't too easy for me. I'm currently working on the "endurance lite" portion, and keep getting almost through it . . .

Crickler crashed my computer. Then I tried again, because I'm stupid, and it crashed again. This makes me sad.

Thanks for posting the "Cricklers" I had never heard of them before but they're so much fun. Totally addicting. I like them more than traditional crosswords.

I enjoyed cricklers. "Crossword-lite" comes to mind as a description. when battling 3:00am insomnia, that isn't a bad thing.
Unlike Robynthegeek, i'd say i enjoy traditional crosswords more. I don't always solve them entirely, but when i do, i am more gratified than having solved a crickler. Also, the good old pencil-and-paper format is even more portable than my laptop. ;)
Here's some x-words from my hometown newspaper:

The gravity game is AWESOME - very enjoyable and pretty - but I wish they had a version with a larger screen!

If anyone is into gravity games, I wrote "Gravity Wars" based on the Amiga classic - take a look!

I like Cricklers.

Although they seem to be too easy, especially considering English is, like, my third language. Perhaps the handicap mechanism is working overtime for my benefit (currently it states the number 22, whatever that meant) but I'd like a little bit more challenge.

I've never even clicked the owl, even though I'm interested what it does, from fear it would make the puzzle even easier.

Nevertheless, I like this crosswordy thingy very much. Thanks for listing it!

@baba: The owl tells you what letter goes in whatever space you're currently in, then it takes one minute to recharge the pencil.

Orbit Runner is much, much too hard. It became frustrating by level 8.
