The Vault

TrickyThe past couple of weeks have seen some major controversy erupt in the next-gen console wars, with fans accusing news sites of downplaying how the XBox One plays at a 720p resolution, with the Playstation 4 playing at the perhaps-negligibly-superior 1080p. Well, I'm happy to announce that we, the makers of the TRICKYA game console have scooped our competitors again, as I am now allowed to reveal that the TRICKYA will totally allow you to play games in 1085p! And that's like, 5p more! So how about that, huh? Checkmate! Anyways, for all you stuck in the blurry confines of your browser window, this week the JayIsGames Vault offers physics, platforming, and point-and-clicks for your playing pleasure. Hopefully you won't have to squint too much to see them.

  • FraggerFragger - Fragger, a 2009 physics puzzler by Harold Brenes, is the epitome of the "throw grenades at stuff to make it go boom" subgenre. However it earns that distinction by making the gameplay more strategic rather than mindless. Oh certainly, there's a lot of exploding bodies and crates and whatnot, which is always a good time, but just as entertaining are the sections where a single well-placed blast causes a chain reaction of mayhem of Rube Goldberg-ian proportions. Plus, you get bonus points for clonking your target in the with a grenade before it explodes! More games need to give points for adding insult to injury.
  • Mirror's Edge 2DMirror's Edge 2D - Like absolutely anyone could have guessed, the free-flowing platforming Brad Borne made famous in his Fancy Pants series mixes with the parkour action of EA's Mirror's Edge like chocolate and peanut-butter. The Best of Casual Gaming Action/Arcade Award winner of 2008, Mirrors Edge 2D almost makes living in an oppressive governmental dystopia look a little too enjoyable, what with all the sliding under tables and easy leaping from extended-crane-arm-to-building-roofs herein. With Mirror's Edge 2 on the way, we can only hope that there will be a Mirror's Edge 2 2D (or 2D 2), too.
  • Reincarnation: A Demon's Day OutReincarnation: A Demon's Day Out - With 13 total installments, starting with this 2008 release, Chris Gianelloni's Reincarnation series of point-and-click adventures is one of the most prolific in the world of browser gaming. Unrepentantly dark and gleefully inappropriate in its humor, the games never fail to bring forth the uncomfortable laughter and Vile the Demon, the imp tasked in each game with capturing escaped sinful souls and returning them to hell, looks, sounds, and acts so terribly that you just gotta love the guy. While the formula was getting a little frayed by the end as the developers made a final publicity push for their successful 2012 Download-Version KickStarter, the sheer quality in the quantity makes the games a must-play for those who won't be worried if their browser smells like brimstone for a bit after.

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!

I, for one, cannot WAIT until Vile Media (Chris G's media company formed around the Reincarnation series, for those few not in the loop) to release The Root of all Evil! I LOVE the Reincarnation series!!
