The Vault This week's episode of the Vault features robotic puzzles, high-flying mammals and fast-paced arcade gameplay, and proof that you have it better than you think you do in one of the trickiest (and perhaps most subtly thought-provoking) simulation games on the web. It's Dolphin Olympics, Gateway, and Ayiti: the Cost of Life!

This game is rated :S for content, click through for an explanation
Doodle Devil is here! Doodle Devil is here and, as promised, we have it here first! The sequel to the amazingly popular Doodle God is now out in a Flash version for all those without a smartphone. More Doodle God is never a bad thing, and even though Doodle Devil doesn't reinvent the alchemical wheel, there's still plenty to love. The series distills a very basic element found at the core of all video games: exploration and discovery.

This week we bring you one mean wolf, alien cannibalism, robots in experimental servitude, and zombie uprisings! If that isn't adorable and kid-friendly, we don't know what is!

The Vault What makes a puzzle? This week's edition of The Vault has three examples that prove a puzzle isn't just about crunching numbers or smooshing the corners of a jigsaw piece to make it fit where it doesn't belong. Featuring a randomly generated brain teaser, a stickman with multiple potential horrible fates, and something simply soothing, we've got something for everyone. Unless what you're into is zombified pirate pony sudoku. Sorry. Maybe next time.

You know, the kind that goes to space with other cosmonauts, vacuums the shuttle while some all-powerful being guides you to the surface of alien planets. Either way, we've got you covered.

The Vault "Will you step into my vault?" said the joye to the JayIsGames readers. And there she stopped, because the idea of attempting to parody the entire poem was the scariest thing she'd heard of this Halloween season. Nothing else could compare. Certainly not these three games. Nope. No disturbing underbelly to any of THESE games. Just pure, innocent Tuesday goodness.

From mummified birds to pirate parrots to fish whose only desire is to submerge themselves in gooey pink fluid, we've got a fresh batch of video games that showcase animals doing what animals do best; being complete weirdos.

Mobile Monday One day, I will release an iPhone game. It will be a game about writing articles about iPhone games. You'll have to play a ton of games, try to manage your rage when yet another burp/bikini/fart app appears, and cry tears of joy when something original appears. After selecting your games, you'll sit down and compose an article complete with gorgeous screenshots and flowery prose as an introduction paragraph. When you're finished, you can make a game about writing iPhone game articles in the game and start the process anew. It will be the greatest, most infinite iPhone game ever!

Weekend Download Fooling around with the titles of this week's selection of games, I discovered something unusual. If you rearrange the letters, you can create the phrase "a decarbonised djinn met musing". Now, that may seem a bit random on the surface, but if you think about it (especially if you're a djinn who has had his carbon removed), you'll either go mad or realize it's kind of a funny thing. But, whatever... GAMES!

Mobile Monday What's even more exciting than skiing on ever-generating platforms with a rainbow at your back? Climbing on top of random piles of pixel art junk that falls from the sky! Seriously, try it. In real life. Go ahead.

Weekend Download The exclamation mark. It is thought to have originated from the Latin word for joy, lo, and made an appearance in printed English literature in the 1400s. Now, developers can append it to the end of their game titles to denote happiness, excitement or, indeed, to encourage you to exclaim the name outloud.

Link Dump Friday This week on Link Dump Friday; a vertical shooter, a point-and-click escape, and some sort of... squidy... guy... sailing through the air... um. Yeah. Sackboys, sushi, cockroaches, spaceships, and sky-sailing! Five great flavours that go great together. Trust us on this one.

Mobile Monday Human beings love puzzles. This was proven eons ago when man first drew grids in the sand and placed various arrangements of four stones together as he gradually moved them downwards and removed them from the dirt when they formed a horizontal line. What, did you think Tetris was a modern invention? This week's Mobile Monday is stacked with three puzzle games for the Android platform. Download 'em, play 'em, and love 'em for a very long time, as each one's got a ton of content to sap your brain for all it's worth.

This week's Link Dump Friday offers everything from point-and-click escapes to retro platforming with a tasty twist. Also, there is a puppy in a birthday hat. I am totally not making that up.

Mobile Monday A proper Victorian gentleman never swears or loses his temper. He should never fail to raise his hat to an acquaintance, and if he should bump into someone or step upon a lady's dress, a sincere "Beg your pardon" should be uttered. Also, fist bumps are appropriate only when in the company of other similarly-bodacious gentlemen.

Mobile Monday Some things in life you take for granted. Some things are always there and you never even stop to realize how important they are to you. These things fill a gap that only exists when they aren't there, leaving you free to live your life without disturbance. That is, until the day your keyboard goes on the fritz and you have to use a funky backup from the closet. Oh, ergonomic bliss, how your comfortable shape has molded my soul! Also: games are below.

Weekend Download It's not often you find songs with lyrics in a video game. It's even less common that those lyrics explain how to play the game. Man Enough does both of those and somehow manages to squeeze in an image of a manly moustache between each round. Be impressed with catchy expositions!!!

Link Dump Friday It's Friday, and where are you, dear reader? If your answer is anything other than "Kicking back in my fuzzy slippers with my beverage of choice and reading Link Dump Friday to get me primed for the weekend", well, then I am very disappointed in you! (Other acceptable answers include "Rescuing kittens from trees", "Writing a letter in support of fair-trade products", and "Rocking out with Tenacious D".) THIS WEEK: pixels, robots, Minoto, and coloured self-aware squares with haunting gazes forever locked in a featureless black void and unable to cry out for help before they blip out of their cold, lonely existence. Exciting!

Different outcomes to the stories you are playing are nothing new, but it isn't often that the games are short and entertaining enough to encourage you to gather them all.

Two of this week's games feature different endings, and you'll definitely want to experience some of these alternate conclusions!
