Happy Friday, dearest reader! We hope you're full of pep, vim, vigour, and apple juice (we like apple juice), and ready to spring into your weekend! And four out of five doctors who were most certainly not given conspicuous burlap sacks with dollar signs on them for their testimonies agree; the best way to start your weekend off right is with a big heaping helping of Link Dump Friday! We've got a broad offering this week with pinball, romance, shooters, and more! So kick back, relax, and peruse the titles below, because we're here to make your Friday suck a little less! Who loves ya, baby?
- Colour My World - Get ready for some good ol' fashioned d'awwww. More guided emotive journey than true-blooded point'n'click, this little game is cuddlier than a pillow case full of Persian kittens. When you're late, late, late for a very important date, you'll have to run, jump, and click your way through the landscape to your beloved, bringing a little colour to the world along the way.
- Hell is Other People - [Note: Requires "Unity" browser plug-in.] Despite the title, this game is not just for reclusive internet shut-ins with secret crushes on the pizza delivery crew, but for anyone looking for a slightly different shooter experience. Battle the past movements of previous players and try to stay alive long enough to leave a vicious, score-killing after image behind for someone else to stumble across so they can curse your 3-character moniker for the rest of their days.
- Power Pinball - It's pinball! In your browser! With dragonflies! For free! Ohhhhh emmmm geeee, you guys! Ninja Kiwi's newest title is a colourful, fun romp filled with all the lights, bells, bumpers, and power-ups you could want! And all without having to pump your quarters into it! Perhaps future updates will allow me to try to cheat by jiggling my monitor around for even more pinball realism.
- Butterfly Fantasy 3 - The mildly mystifying spot-the-difference trilogy finally comes to a close. Will the events in the previous installments finally be explained? Hahahahaha, no, silly! But despite being a little weird, the series continues to be beautifully made and even a little touching. And besides, I'm hardly one able to accuse someone else of not making sense.
- Obechi - Who's excited?! We're excited! Because Danny Miller, creator of Boomshine is here to fill that cold, whistling void in our souls with another deceptively simple and purely addictive game of planning and reflexes. While not, perhaps, as compulsively playable as Boomshine was, Obechi is still a stylish, colourful little puzzle game that will treat you right for as long as you'll let it.
