The Vault

TrickyCome on in to Crazy Tricky's Vault O' Items, for all the best deals on things to clutter your inventory! We've got red potions! We've got blue potions! We've got all manner of ethers, elixers, herbs, and a bunch of feathers we plucked from an annoyed phoenix just this morning! And for just coming in today, you get, absolutely free, three excellent platform, adventure, and arcade games from the JayIsGames archives! Why? Because we're cuh-raaazy!

  • Lucky TowerLucky Tower - The world of hack-and-slash, with its menacing villains and complicated traps, is a natural setting for physical comedy. Lucky Tower, a humorous platform adventure by Exotworking, takes full advantage of the comedic possibilities of its fantasy setting, and the results are hilarious. Playing like an interactive Looney Tune, the none-too-bright knight protagonist will get spiked, barreled, chomped, crushed, and exploded dozens of times before he manages to escape the tower he's trapped in, but you'll be laughing all the while.
  • One ChanceOne Chance - So many games allow us to undo our decisions with a press of a button, or flick of a switch. Whenever that agency is taken away from us, suddenly everything feels a lot more serious. Such is the case with One Chance, a 2010 pixelated adventure from Awkward Silence Games. It does its best to give you only a single run through its apocalyptic scenario, and the decisions you make are permanent. Reloading the browser to find a barren world just as lifeless as you left it, is a strangely haunting image, and gives One Chance a gravitas that most triple-A titles could only hope for.
  • PyoroPyoro - It may be a little greedy, but I always love it when developers include random extras and mini-games with their works, even if they have only limited connection to the rest of the game. Such is the case with Pyoro, a fun arcade game Nintendo released along with the original WarioWare on the Game Boy Advance. Supposedly, it was the success of that game Wario hoped to copy with his own line of games. Of course, while Pyoro itself didn't launch a microgaming hit franchise, that little bird with it's long gulping tongue is as hilarious as ever. In 2005, Johnny Slack recreated its looks and gameplay for the browser, and, much like Pyoro's appetite for seeds, it's hard to stop once you've started.

While we welcome any comments about this weekly feature here, we do ask that if you need any help with the individual games, please post your questions on that game's review page. Well, what are you waiting for? Get out there and rediscover some awesome!

Find the Escape-Men Part 126: The Special Property> Dora The apartment in this escape game's rent is suspiciously low, and there's a weird smell here too... so it's probably not a good sign your realtor has locked you inside!

This War of Mine> Dora In this compelling and grim indie simulation, you control a group of survivors struggling to get by day to day in an increasingly dangerous city that's turned into a war zone. As the days pass, you're forced to push the limits of what you're comfortable with in order to survive, and rather than glorifying war for heroics, This War of Mine humanizes it for its people.  ...
