Four Second Fury
Furious is defined as: "Full of activity; energetic or rapid". This next game will probably make you feel a little like a "furious" five year old with a mouth full of sugar.
From jmtb02, creator of the Ball Revamped series, comes Four Second Fury. Lacking any sort of plot, Four Second Fury launches the player into a series of 20 randomly selected, four-second mini games ranging from simple dodging games to a sort of "Simon says" type games.
The game doesn't try to be anything more than that: just a simple, quick Flash game when you have a few minutes to kill. Don't expect it to last long—you only have five lives with which to fail. And once they are gone, you will have to start a new game. This isn't really a problem, however, as you will quickly master the controls (spacebar and arrow keys) and complete the game with ease. And despite the game's simplicity, it was still able to hold my attention. I can definitely see myself putting off work for yet another Four Second Fury again.
Analysis: My only problem with games like this is that sometimes they are not as fast-paced as they set out to be. However, with Four Second Fury this is not the case. It's perfect for burning off a sugar rush.
Like I said, I loved it. It doesn't really require any more in-depth analysis. Run, catch, dodge, and defeat the final "boss" as he hurls previous mini-games at you (you'll understand when you play it). Relax and enjoy it.
The music certainly adds to the atmosphere of the game (techno anyone?). Although it is almost certainly run on a loop, the game is so fast that you hardly notice. This can hardly be said for other games much like this.
Fast and furious and great for a rainy afternoon, Four Second Fury is sure to entertain you... for about 2 minutes. And that's exactly what it sets out to do.
Check out the entire Four Second series of games.
Cheers also to Talps, Mike, Zengief, and Andrew for suggesting this game.
