Link Dump Fridays

DoraWelcome to your Friday, dear reader! To help you get ready for that cherished weekend (ohboyohboyohboy!) we have prepared for you a fine and varied selection of games, delicately simmered in the juices of the internet. Uh... that... actually doesn't sound that appetizing, does it? Hmm. Well, how about a fine stew of superheroes, logic puzzles, and hidden objects? Guaranteed to have all the imaginary vitamins and minerals to get you through the day!

  • CanufitCanufit - Finally, a game for everyone who has ever packed a suitcase by cramming everything in willy-nilly, and then voided the warranty by using the awesome power of their buttocks to force it closed! Move and rotate letters within the images until they fit neatly within the borders. Or, you know, haphazardly in an awkward way nature never intended. Whatever gets the job done.
  • Mushroom MadnessMushroom Madness - Not, in fact, a propaganda film, but a tale of the eternal struggle of man versus hedgehog!... well, okay, it's not that either. Not really, anyway. Use your flyswatter and other, ahem, heavy weaponry to protect your precious mushrooms and buy upgrades. You won't find these methods at Home Depot, but I might shop there more often if you could.
  • Armored AshuraArmored Ashura - Monsters! Boss fights! Magical transformations! Power armor! Yeeeeeeeeaaaah! We can't really tell you what this side-scrolling laser feast is about because we're all too busy air-guitaring and pretending we're in an eighties anime series with giant robots and four frames of animation. Ahhh, childhood memories.
  • Hotel SuburaHotel Subura - Feeling down? If we've learned anything from John Cusak and Jack Nicholson, it's that a prolonged stay in an ominous hotel with a tragic past makes everything better! So why not spend some time, alone, in this ominous little hidden object game that absolutely does not feature a sinister secret? Seriously, it's totally fine! We can have your CDs if you don't come back, right?
  • Feeling FancyFeeling Fancy - Well, are you? You aren't? Well that's a shame. Fortunately, it's nothing that flinging yourself around through the mazes of clouds gathering sparkles and star juice won't fix. No, don't ask how. Shhh, no questions. Just watch the jaw-dropping opening sequence and pass the popcorn.

Canufit is a lot of fun, gets the brain cells firing a little - but I'm stuck on the fishbowl...

Okay - finished it *phew* but the ending makes me think there will be more...

I really liked how, in Hotel Subura, you would occasionally click a correct object and get a time penalty for it, and then click it again and it would be accepted. Or the way the time penalties were shorter than described on-screen. So this is what I've been missing as regards hidden object games.

Think I'll pass.

For Hotel Suburba, here's what I've found in the spot-the-differences game:

1. Nothing.

2.

The arrow on the gas tank.

3.

The lever on the pipe-thing on the upper right side of the screen.

4.

The...pipes? Above the gast tank? The one to the far left is one too many.

5.

The gray wall next to the lower left side of the gas tank.

6.

The word "NORMAL" on the gas tank.

Other Hotel Subura difference:

There are two horizontal stripes of paint near the top of the gas tank. The lower one is the wrong length on the right-hand image.

yeah, so I've gotten to the spot the difference one too and there is absolutely nothing for the #1. I've been looking for the last 20 minutes and I can't find a darn thing.

Maude Buttons,

I'm with you. Can't find #1 for the life of me.

@ JIGuest: Thank you. Except -- that was the ending?

There's probably a lesson there about misspending my time and all.

Hey, for the gas tank #1, is this it?

Look at the red paint on the upper left of the pump. One of the two vertical brush marks is different. That work?

The thing is, Hotel Subura - and that is the correct spelling, by the way, there's no second "b" - has a story that would be great for atmosphere and set-pieces. But it's wasted on this hidden object thing.

i don't get why 'Feeling Fancy' happens in the clouds and not in a pineapple under the sea. Well, Mushroom madness had me playing the longest. I just HAD to get all the stars...

nurse#13 is right. Here is the #1 difference

Its is a horizontal red brush stroke. the second one in the top left corner of the gas tank.

Thanks nurse13 I was going out of my mind trying to find that one.

I'm on what I think is the last level of Hotel Subura, but I'm really scared thinking that finding the last object and clicking it will make something really scary show up on the screen, like a screamer or something. ._.

I'm just not even going to finish it. Dx

Armored Ashura was a lot of fun, with a bunch of cool weapons to play with, and not too much difficulty. The only trouble was when I ended up fighting a boss with my stupid homing shuriken (Yellow powerup, so you know what not to get). Those things do pitiful damage and have a habit of targeting the boss's limitless supply of missiles instead of the actual boss, and it's even worse with the charged up forms, because those are a single object and so if it goes out of its way to chase down missiles it probably won't scratch the boss. And the charged forms aren't even that damaging. I should have stuck with the giant blue lasers instead.

Grant, are you talking about the one when it says, "MY WORK IS ALMOST COMPLETE"? No, no scaring things after it. The protagonist reverts to normal.

OK, I'm glad I'm not the only one who got a penalty in Hotel Subura by clicking a correct object. It doesn't seem to want them in any particular order, so why did I get a penalty? Looks like a bug!!

Sarah, I think some stuff in Hotel Subura just has an incredibly small, uh, click-box? If you don't click on the exact centre of something, it doesn't count.

Feeling Fancy is beautiful and fun, but I am starting to think that level 19 is not solvable. So sad.

I like Canufit very much but I can't do level 5 and the senior thesis. Any help please? I also love the way you can go on to the next level even if you can't finish the previous one!

So I passed the senior thesis in Canufit, but where is the Master's levels? Have they not made it yet?

@ShodoKat
Not me, how far have you gotten? I am stuck on level 19, and actually spent a while taking screen-shots and mashing them together, and still can't see how it could possibly be solved.

I am starting to suspect that getting all of the keys is the wrong idea on this one, maybe you actually need to stand on some of those locks in order to get into the area with the bottle. But I don't know, and I guess I have given up for now.

Feeling Fancy Level 19 (don't know if spoiler tags are necessary here, so just in case):

I don't know what I did but I solved it in like 8 seconds without any of the keys and without even touching any of the locked clouds, though it seems I can't do it again... I didn't get all of the little stars either.

Thanks for the help, I'll give it another try.
