One more day, you guys. One more day. Aaa. Aaaaaa. Aaaaaaaah!... what? Oh, whatever. Have some games and stuff. Aaaaa!
- Chicks Hide and Seek 13 - How wondrous must your life be that your day revolves not around paying bills or housework, but on playing hide and seek all day with tiny baby chicks? On a cuteness scale of one to ten, this one is an oh em geeeeee you guys for sure. Yuuri's latest is a bit on the easy side as you click around and try to find all the chicks hiding behind/under/blending into things, but a few clever puzzles balance things out to make for a sweet and tasty distraction to start your day with.
- Bell park, Youth Detective - It's not exactly difficult, but if you grew up with the stuff like me, Brendan Patrick Hennessey's silly, snarky interactive fiction title that effortlessly skewers and celebrates the "child detective" concept is well worth the read. When twelve-year-old Bell Park is called in to help solve a mystery, she quickly discovers she might be a bit over her head, and that the truth may be stranger than fiction. The ending is a little unsatisfying, but if you like 'em well written and funny, this one is worth the play.
- Dino Run: Enter Planet D - Created by Pixeljam Games to promote their Dino Run 2 Kickstarter, this little arcade game puts a weird spin on the Dino Run you know and love when the end of the world starts to get a little crazy. As before, you're racing to outrun fiery doom, dodging obstacles and nomming up eggs and smaller dinos for DNA to spend on upgrades, but can you handle bizarre floating space blobs? How about flaming pterodactyls?
- Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Doodle - Currently only playable at https://www.google.co.nz/, here's an adorable little point-and-click puzzle game for all you Whovians to celebrate the Doctor's 50th anniversary. Dodge Daleks and more as you travel through time hunting down letters with your favourite Doctor... uh, possibly Doctors if you wind up getting zapped. The whole thing is unbearably adorable, and should help tide you over until the special airs this Saturday, even if I think they should have just made Donna Saves Everyone: The Game.
