Link Dump Fridays

DoraBouncy, outgoing website full of great reviews and free content seeks amazingly talented reader to play games and be Best Friends Forever with. Qualified applicants must be willing to enjoy free games cherry-picked from around the web... and if you have your own ponies we could ride together along the beach at sunset it might sweeten the pot a little. Must smell nice and have awesome hair. (Or a very shiny bald head.) Apply below.

  • Puzzling WarPuzzling War - WAR. Huah! (Good gawd, y'all!) What is it good for? Absolutely nothin' except dispatching troops in fantasy warfare via a match-3 system not unlike Bejeweled! SAY IT AGAIN!... uh, maybe not. That's kind of a mouthful. Although not nearly as fleshed out as it really needs to be, there's something addictive about this Corpse Craft-ish take on the genre. If only the graphics weren't so small and fuzzy. Ah well. Once more, for old time's sake? WAAAAAARRRR! You can't beat the classics.
  • Tiny Massive GalaxyTiny Massive Galaxy - Here we have a simple, cute little platform game where you play a little jelly cube hopping around obstacles and exploring. While it has a polished design, however, the levels just don't have enough variation or excitement to get you really engaged. It's also potentially nightmarish, if you really think about it. I mean, here you are, the hero, hopping through a candy-cotton fluff of a world to twinkly music... and you're ripping the hearts out of your own kind with your tongue to survive. That has to be a Stephen King story.
  • MomentumMomentum - A little bit Portal and a little bit My First Quantum Translocator, this puzzle/platformer game puts you in the sprockets of a tiny little robot running experiments. Running and jumping is easy for you, but how about harnessing the power of your own momentum to make huge leaps? It's adorable and fun once you get the hang of it, but you might feel a bit as if the controls are fighting you the whole way there. It's kind of like assembling Ikea furniture, only without the shoddy bookcase as a reward for completion.
  • Three Little CatsThree Little Cats - So I hear you like mudkips escape games. From Choko-Chai comes this adorable little spin on the Three Little Pigs where you (as three cats, or Nyan as the game calls them) have to escape from three different houses to avoid the Big Bad Wolf. It's silly, sweet, and quite possibly one of the cutest things I've seen in a long time. You might find the navigation a little tricky in some places due to some unfortunate pixel hunting, but this should be a nice chunk of puzzling to keep you escape fiends busy... for now. (DUN DUN DUN.)
  • Radio ZedRadio Zed - The dead walk, and they crave braaaaaaaaaains, delicious bloated on free speech and educated by public radio braaaaaaaaains! In this defense shooter game you play a group of people trying to defend a radio station during a zombie invasion. It's got gorgeous retro-ish visuals and should be a lot of fun, but unfortunately is bogged down with slow gameplay and terrible marksmanship. It's kind of like that one movie with Ving Rhames and Mena Suvari and... my gosh I've seen a lot of awful zombie movies.

I love me an escape game so I've gone straight for Three Little Cats and stumbled on the pixel hunting problem.

I've made it to the house of sticks, gotten the key from the wolves and assume it must open the drawer but it's not working and I can't find anywhere else to click that does.

Oh, frustration.

The key to open the drawer is on the back of a tile.

Hooray, I finished Three Little Cats and managed to get both endings without needing to look anything up or ask for help. That having been said, the most difficult thing about it was the pixel hunting so I'm not claiming this as any great achievement. Just a little victory to end the week.

Cats are there to help! Especially when it comes to pushing things!

I used the blacklight in the dark basement and it seems that I'm missing the middle tile... and, for the record, isn't the pick wick coming ut of the bomb a fuse already??? :P

Thank you Mantari, i have managed to get that on my own. Now, like Johnny, i'm stuck in the brick house. This game really sticks in my brain, and i can't close it's tab in the browser! Every 10 minutes return to the game to try something new.
I'm just hoping to finish it before i have to go home!

I liked Momentum. Interesting storyline.

It sets itself up like the classic Portal plot with the conflicting guides, but then subverts it-- the new guide is the one you can't trust.

Alright, I feel like a really dumb escaper because I am still stuck in the straw house.

I've wet the ground and dug a hole that is too small, and now nothing I can click on leads to progress

I can't figure out the combo for the safe in the straw house. I'm cycling through the hint but apparently I'm too dense to decypher it.

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

Never mind, figured once I posted I'd figure it out and I did.

To get out of the strawhouse you need to open the safe, do this:

Click on the safe, then click on the top of the safe. Take the tile. Now click the button in the upper left corner and it will cycle through some numbers. For each number you'll see the different colored lines that correspond to the colors of the safe code. For each of the four numbers just duplicate the line for that color on a piece of paper, if you see a yellow line on the top in one number, put it on the paper, and if you see the yellow line in the middle and bottom on another number, do the same. After the sequence cycles through you'll see that you have 4 numbers made up of the lines. Hope this helps, in my game the code was

Okay, I'm in the same place in Three Little Cats as Refia, & I'm about to explode from the frustrated pixel-hunting. Could someone please help us out, & maybe explain why the cats don't just use the lighter in the dark basement or throw the bomb at the wolf?

@Allison

Click on the cat while looking at the shelves, they'll show up on your screen. Now click on the lower right of the shelves, first cat will move into position, then click on the shelves above him, second cat will move into position, etc.

Just finished the game with one ending, gonna see if I can figure out this second ending I hear about.

Aha, there are two endings. First one you

light the fuse and watch what happens, that's the bad ending. For the good ending you need to

click on the basement door while the fuse is burning, they'll go hide in the basement.

So far I've

And that's it.

Holy moley, my worst fail ever. I'm having trouble getting out of the little kitty's house of straw!

I got the rather obvious pitchfork from the mass of straw, and I got the pruning scissors from the mass of straw via the pitchfork,

but now I'm stuck! I can't enter numbers into the lockbox because I haven't seen any clues, but I have no idea where to find any! Clicking on hotspots yields nothing useful.

I enjoyed the cat game, though

having to click on the cat(s) to do things in the game felt cheap. I had no idea that was even possible without random experimental clicking.

And the lesson I learned here is

it works better when the flashlight is turned ON!

I don't have anything against escape games, but I'm a little sad about the fact that whenever there is one in a Link Dump, it takes over the entire comments section! I used to occasionally comment on two or three of the games, but now I feel that it would be quickly buried under the ongoing point-and-click discussion. :(

[I'm hearing you. This is one of several downsides to our link dump format, and I've been working to come up with a solution for it. In the near future we may move to a similar format for LDF and WD as we have for The Vault, in which we link to the individual review and discussion page for each game instead of directly to a page where the game is hosted. It may require an additional click to play each game in a dump in the future, but it would solve most of the problem issues we currently have with dump style articles. -Jay]

I really want to like Puzzling War, but the choice to have a set of blue characters and a set of grey characters with very similar design really kind of ruins it for me. Way too many wrong clicks because they look like matches.

It also seems like there's a serious front-runner effect - once one side starts beating on the other side's door, the game is decided unless there's a huge swing of luck. Of course, that seems to be common to this style of march-across-the-screen game.

Puzzling war was cute, but far too short. I have to agree that the blue and grey-haired characters were really too similar as well.
