Everything is cute in this week's Link Dump Friday! The monkeys pelting you with trash. The hole you're excavating through the Earth. The backstabbing. Even the unintentionally comedic deaths of your coworkers as you try to lead them to safety! Aren't games wonderful?
- Dig to China - Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to China I go, with no passport but a big pickaxe hi-ho, hi-ho! Octopodo sends you on an arcade-y journey through the center of the Earth as you try to dig as far as you can each round before the time runs out, spending any gems and minerals you nabbing on upgrades. It sounds like a time-consuming way to travel, but I guess it's better than having naked pictures taken of yourself at the airport.
- I Eat Bananas - This simple arcade game must be a metaphor for something, right? Like the beanstalk is, um, life, and the bananas are... are... promotions! But, like, the big mean monkeys up top throwing junk to knock you down are... "The Man", always keeping you down, and so you always have to keep struggling up against society!... or maybe monkeys just really like to eat bananas.
- Rescuenator - gametornado's physics puzzle puts the hilarity into rescue work, although that might just be because I'm a terrible person and I laughed like a hyena the first time I dropped someone down an elevator shaft with a shocked, garbled cry. Click to manipulate the environment and make safe paths for your hapless victims to make it to the ambulance, but beware... danger is everywhere, and hilarious.
- Don't See Me - ABA Games wants you to face your enemies!... unless, you know, they can actually see you. Then you run and hide like a little coward. In this arcade game, you can only take down an enemy when their back is to you, so you'll have to sneak around and avoid their line of sight. Throw in a trippy, psychedelic retro style and you have one weirdly addictive little game that will have you cheerfully backstabbing your way to a high score.
