The Vault №102 Bugs, gems, and exit doors might seem like an odd combination, but not when you're talking about the Vault! A classic sliding blocks style puzzler, an exercise in itty-bitty exploration, and a night in the life of a spider building its web are all the stars.

The Vault №60 I can't get no.... satisfaction. I can't get no... gaming action. But I try! And I try! And I try! And I try!... and I realize that I can probably just look to the JiG archives for all the games I could ever want. Take that, double negative! This week in The Vault we've got three action games that are sure to fire your imagination.

The Vault №59 It's a point-and-click-stravaganza on this week's edition of the Vault, as we pull back the ancient mists of time through the years all the way back to 2005 in search of some of our best adventure games. If you're a fan of the site, you're probably familiar with one of them in particular, but all three are fantastic little tales ripe for the picking. Or clicking. Whichever.

Link Dump Friday №231 You shouldn't trust any of the protagonists or scenarios in this week's Link Dump Friday since they'll probably get you killed in a variety of painful ways. Like growing a beanstalk in your chest. Or throwing you in acid. Or striking you dead just so they can squabble over your corpse. Games are harsh.

The Vault №58 Some times while gazing up at the celestial firmament, I realize that, out there in this big world of ours, there are thousands of unlucky 8 month-olds who have never experienced a JiG Casual Game Design Competition. It's a tragedy really. And while those poor tots might not be required to wait too much longer, we can takes some comfort in the 9 previous CGDC iterations each provide more than the daily requirement of epic that growing children need. This week, the JiG Vault features some personal favorites from past competions. Future entrants take note: you've got some tough acts to follow.

Developers no longer have to use programming "cheats" to create 3D effects... but still we respect the skill of those who wanted to and did. This week, the JiG Vault features three excellent pseudo-3D games from our archives. It may have been five years since their graphics were cutting-edge, but fun is timeless.

Still, when I get the urge to be a heroic guitarist, a revolutionary dancer, or an elite agent of beat, no one can stop me from having the volume go up to 11. To quote Dire Straits: I want my JiG!

What I meant to say is that this is a Vault article about the mania I have over these incredible simulations. This week, we look into the JayIsGames archives to highlight three games perfect for those of us who like to escape reality by showing how much better it could be if they were in charge of running it.

The Vault №50 I recently checked out my ol' arcade at the hometown mall... Have to tell ya, things were pretty dire. It was once an Aladdin's Castle, but nowadays it's more of an Aladdin's Shack or, perhaps, an Aladdin's Hovel. Needless to say, the $5 in my pocket ended up going to a pretzel instead. At least the JiG Vault is here to make up for what reality lacks. This week we have three awesome arcade=styled games that deserve your tokens and your attention.

The Vault №49 Casual games are often derided as simplistic... but that complaint assumes that complexity is a good thing in and of itself. Certainly I've seen more than my fair share of bloated major releases that feel like they bring my CPU to a crawl just for the the heck of it. Reducing puzzles to their most fundamental features, without sacrificing an iota of challenge, can make for some very satisfying games. Today in the JiG Vault we have three minimalist masterpieces from our archives that show just how great it can be when developers Keep It Simple, Stupid.

The Vault №48 The first adventure game I ever played was Maniac Mansion. I was in 4th Grade, and for some reason the classroom happened to have a decade-old Commodore 64 with a collection of not-entirely functional floppy diskettes that we LOAD,8,1-ed at random. We never really made much progress into saving Sandy from Dr. Fred (due largely to our lack of understanding re: the concept of "copy protection"), but it inspired a love of adventure games that has continued with me to this day. So join me for three favorites of the genre, this week in the JayIsGames Vault.

Thus, if memory serves me correctly, we look to the land of the rising sun to feature some of the best casual gameplay works from the nation of Japan. The heat is on in the JiG Vault! ALLEZ JEUX!

The Vault №45 Not many people know that JiG originally started as a tournament conceived by mysterious businessman J. Bibson, in the attempt to find the world's most powerful game reviewer. We were all set to start the first round at the JiG docks... but then a new Eyezmaze game came out, we all got distracted, and decided to start a website instead. And so, we peer into archives of that website as this week in the JayIsGames Vault, we feature some of the best casual fighting games of years past.

Here are three of my favorites, which I think will be fun for both the young and the young at heart.
