The Vault Let me see... going from all the evidence in front of me... I'm going to have to go with... Tricky! In the JayIsGames Vault! With this week's handful of games from the past!... Okay, the games below might not be of too much help in discovering who killed Mr. Boddy, but any amateur sleuth out there should enjoy the collection of not-so-elementary cases to crack. They take us to crimes around the globe: from the underbelly of the big city, to a small-town circus, to the deserts of Egypt. The game's afoot!

The Vault I have to tell you, the first version of this column was pretty dire. Fortunately, a team of programmers spent six months updating the elements for this Golden Platinum Article of the Year re-release. Anyway, this week, I'd like to share some of the best remakes from the JiG Vault, and a nice collection they are: a bubbly action puzzler, a sonic-booming platformer, and a truly explosive shmup.

The Vault 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 I ventured down to The Vault last night to see what I could dig up from the dusty old shelves down there, and I'm sure you're going to like what I found! Although these games haven't been in the limelight for quite some time now, they're still classics as far as browser games go and everyone should enjoy them at least a couple dozen times! Featured below is a room escape, an arcade game and one of the first physics puzzle browser games I ever played.

Link Dump Friday On this last Friday (and Link Dump Friday!) of 2010, take the time to indulge in a little pygmy love before the new year. Or maybe you prefer hurling yourself onto spikes? Flipping dimensions and/or gravity? Or maybe you prefer things a little more contemplative? One of these games is not like the others.

Humble Indie Scramble <br />Day 5 If you've been playing along with the Humble Indie Scramble so far this week, you're probably familiar with the drill by now.

"Give me simplicity!" they cry, "Give me pretty pictures!", "Let me play without reading a manual or memorizing commands!". Well, while they sit in the corner and play FarmVille, we'll settle down with our deliciously intriguing dungeon crawling RPGs of yore. Even though the glory days of Nethack are gone, the roguelike is alive and very well today, and there are a number of great projects that aim to bridge the gap between fans and non-fans so that everyone can enjoy the deep satisfaction of exploring the unknown.

The Vault Selections from The Vault for this week are 3 of my all-time favorite games, and I'm thrilled to be able to share them with you again. All three of these gems have long-lasting appeal: a puzzling platformer, a short yet challenging point-and-click adventure, and a remarkably futuristic turn-based strategy game. Individually, each of these games represents a tremendous achievement in browser-based casual gameplay and if you've never played them before, you're in for a real treat.

Combine that with a new game from the creator of Hook Champ, a hilarious browser game hitting iOS, and one of the best freemium city building App Store release so far, and you've got more than enough reasons to stay curled in bed playing iPhone games all morning long.
