Link Dump Friday
Friiiiday, Friiiiiday, gotta Link Dump on Friday! Your favourite weekly dietary supplement of unicorns, aliens, and snakes returns with a quartet of games to keep you busy just long enough for the weekend to inch ever closer to your grasp!
- Room of 1000 Snakes - An ancient temple... a mysterious room... a big red button... and one ridiculous soundtrack make for a very silly "game" from Ben Esposito and Yuliy Vigdorchik that's well worth the few minutes it'll take you to experience, even if you roll your eyes so hard they go clattering across the room afterwards. Well, what were you expecting? (If you have a fear of snakes, you might want to give this one a miss.)
- Hyper Pixel Man - If you're one of those people who can't sit still for long, you might appreciate the zippy, dead-in-a-flash challenge of Pixelulsar's platform game that uses simple, retro graphics to craft some maddeningly difficult levels. If you can put up with the over-eager movement, it offers a satisfying, if perhaps not all that unique, bit of spike-filled action.
- Yepi Forever - Remember when Yepi just wanted to rescue his girlfriend? Remember how cute and adorable that was? Well, FUHGEDDABOUDIT, because Begamer's newest point-and-click puzzle adventure game featuring the little yellow dude has him responding to a distress call on a mysterious red planet, and the tone is decidedly gloomier. Some unintuitive gameplay and painfully slow movement mar this one, but it still provides a solid, coffee-break sized bite of puzzle-y gaming to fill up your day.
- Robot Unicorn Attack Evolution - I don't care how many times we've covered Robot Unicorn Attack, this is my feature and I want to listen to Erasure, dangit. Though ultimately the same sort of ridiculous arcade game as its brethren, Evolution has a few tricks up its sleeve, and remains every bit as silly, fun, and addictive as ever. (Why has this not been ponified yet?)
