And when it comes to Flash games, there aren't many you can trust like Tonypa. He selflessly creates games out of the kindness in his heart, and provides them free for anyone to play on his website. And the best thing is that he keeps making his games better.
With so many excellent Flash games getting sequels this holiday season, it seemed quite fitting to learn that Tonypa has just released a new and improved version of what I believe to be one of his greatest game creations: Pixel Field.
The object of this action strategy game is to move your red triangle base around the mine field collecting all the blue energy pixels in the fewest moves possible. To move, simply click to where you want the base to move, but be careful! The base has an elasticity to its legs that will cause some overshot, so plan accordingly. If the 3 dangling pixels touch any of the green bad pixels, or even touch the walls of the pixel field, you will lose a life. The game is over when you lose your third life.
Tonypa has increased the size of the play field slightly and added 15 new levels to the game bringing the total now up to 30. In addition, bonus levels are awarded by completing sequences of 4, 5, 6 and 7 consecutive levels without losing a single life. To top it all off, he has made each level individually selectable, so there is no need to play each level in order from the begining.
Aesthetically, little touches have been added that make use of the unique new features of Flash Player 8. The base now leaves trails behind it so you can see at a glance where you have previously moved. This comes in handy on some levels that have you backtracking around areas and dead ends.
A great game made even better with all the additions and improvements, and yet not everything has changed. The same classic gameplay that made Pixel Field so great remains intact, as does the soothing soundtrack by Dog, and the charming "chigga-chigga-chigga" sound effect the base makes when it moves around the pixel field.
And just like Pixel Field, Tonypa makes many other wonderful games that are simple, accessible, and fun to play. And on that you can trust. Click.
