Weekend Download №188 If you follow world news events, the weekend is a good time to catch up on what's been going on around our planet. That's pretty boring, however, whereas a 2D platformer, a Lemmings-like action game, and a game where you carry coal to feed a chugging train is much more exciting!

Link Dump Friday №218 There's a cover charge for this week's Link Dump Friday, but I know the guy who owns the place, so I can get you in. It's cool. We're cool. We're serving up point-and-click puzzles, wanton extraterrestrial destruction, ninja creativity, flatulence, and more. That's right... we're the classiest joint in town, baby.

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.

Mobile Monday №121 Ingredients. Can't make anything without them. It's kind of a broad sort of statement to make, but hey, you come here for games, not for philosophical musings. Each game below uses a number of ingredients to make what we call "fun". This "fun" is an enjoyable thing you can experience with your mobile device, thus consuming ingredients which would be distasteful on their own in their properly made form.

Dream Chronicles: The Book of Water Walkthrough Be sure to check out our well-written and complete walkthrough (with images) for Dream Chronicles: The Book of Water, the standard edition of which has just been made available today at Big Fish Games. Be warned: contains major spoilers, so proceed only as needed, and as a last resort.

The Vault №44 I think that one of the signs that I'm getting old is my increasing inability to comprehend the appeal of the latest hot must-have toy of the season. Silly Bands? Zhu Zhu Pets? Paper Jamz? I just feel like I'm missing something. No matter... I have the plethora of webtoys in the JiG Vault to keep my increasingly crotchety personality at bay. Here are three of my favorites, which I think will be fun for both the young and the young at heart.

The three day event encourages solo game creators to dream up and craft a game in just 48 hours. The only other constraint is that entries must adhere to the chosen theme, which was pretty unusual this time around: It's Dangerous to go Alone! Take this!

Mobile Monday №119 Gravity is something we deal with every day. From pulling that cup of coffee off the table (I swear I didn't push it!) to making our hair flat despite the gratuitous amounts of blow drying we've done, that unseen force of nature exerts its control over every single particle. Naturally, playing games that help us defy gravity gives us a sense of power. So if you're feeling a little slow this fine Monday, grab one of the games below and see if playing with physics can't cheer you up a notch!

Weekend Download №185 Part of what makes Weekend Download so fun is sharing games that aren't yet complete, are just concepts, are experimental, or are just plain weird. They aren't epic journeys that will consume entire days of play time. Instead, each little nugget of freeware gold does one thing particularly well. And even if it isn't perfect, we still like to share, allowing more people to play crazier games and giving the creative game developers a little more attention!

Weekend Download №184 More games need to be abstract. Just about every art movement comes with its own brand of creators putting their minds to their respective canvases and creating things that don't quite make sense. Games, on the other hand, tend to be more logical, linear, and easy to understand. Why not break down a few barriers and twist the user's experience around a bit, like this week's feature Contourmind does?

Take a look at the interrogation transcript and see what details you can wring out of his vague responses. If you can find the review page on which he hid his egg, submit its location AND an explanation of Mr. Bunny's code.

(Let me tell you, you do not want to be out of practice for that last one.)

The Vault №34 The front of the Othello box promises that it takes "a minute to learn... a lifetime to master". Now, admittedly I've never been all that interested in spending my lifetime becoming a reversi-master (especially if Settlers of Cataan is nearby), but I think the phrasing is something that resonates with us as gamers. This week in the JayIsGames Vault, we take a peek a trio of games: puzzle, word, and platform, where the complexity hides just below the surface.

Fantasy University Fantasy University is now accepting new students interested in a social (or single-player) RPG experience! Students are expected to perform duties whenever the sock puppets ask, keep their dorms clean of Swedish Twin bedbugs, and help the professors blow up anything (or anyone) they require. Take some time out of your day to tour the scenic campus, go shopping at Rot Topic in nearby Pleasanton (mind your brains), and visit Professor Tree at Petsgo Field. (Stay out of the tall grass!) Just remember to clean up after your tiny Ben Franklins.

You Are Games: Babylon Sticks Caption Contest VII This week on our semi-irregular You Are Games feature, we ask you to think back to an era centuries ago. It was a time when castles were all the rage and checkerboard designs started popping up on every tapestry and tabletop. If you've got a quirky quip that works well with the Babylon Sticks comic below, post it as a comment. We'll select one as the caption for next week's feature, and we'll award a nice prize along with it.

The Vault №30 It's been a long time since my village was destroyed. Since then, I've been on a journey that's spanned the world-map, searching for the six Medallions of Power. Now, as I place the final medallion, the Medallion of Light, I hold my breath as the stone gate slides opens... To reveal another edition of the JayIsGames Vault! Today we have a point-and-click puzzler to treasure, a pixel space shooter that's the alpha and omega, and a retro roadtrip to the coast you'll be sure to enjoy... providing you can ford the river.

Mobile Monday №106 Are you ready to be impressed? Some seriously good looking games have recently been released for Android phones, pushing the limits of what the mobile devices can accomplish, and threatening to scrape the upper limits of your data plan cap. If you can afford the price of entry, however, you can enjoy a near-console-quality game in the palms of your hands, making your phone so much more than a way to talk to grandma every Sunday.

The Vault №29 After some incessant needling and the exchange of certain bits of valuable information, I finally got my hands on the combination to the JayIsGames vault. Let me tell you, taking the grand tour is quite an experience: you'll find all manner of slightly-dusty but still excellent casual games. Today we'll be looking at a point-and-click advergame that puts others to shame, an adorable shockwave action game that will be sure to throw you for a loop, and an artistic webtoy that you might find a little sketchy
