The Vault №100
You know what you need? A quest. I mean, sure, you may be sitting there, all enjoying life with the only obligation on you at the moment being the capability to inhale and exhale, but a little crushing pressure to save the world is just the ticket! Heck, it's even better if you're grossly underqualified. No no, don't thank me. Just enjoy!
- Great Dungeon in the Sky - Rocket Ninja Games adds a liberal spread of platformer jelly to your tasty roguelike sandwich when they served up this little gem. The goal is to take down four dragons and eventually the dungeon boss, but chances are you're probably going to die and have to start all over again somewhere along the way at least once. Sound frustrating? Well, maybe you should use this as an opportunity to try again... this time as one of the monsters or classes you killed before and thus unlocked for play. With fast-paced action, a lovely retro vibe, and a truly massive amount of unlockable characters, each with their own special strengths, weaknesses, and abilities, this is one little game you might find hard to put down.
- Quest for the Crown - What can be said about Questwood Studios' soaring, enriching epic RPG adventure that has not already been said? Beloved by our readers and filled with unparalleled drama and action, this evocative tale of hard journeys and redemptions has won hearts and minds across the internet. It also dispenses cotton candy straight from your browser into your lap every five seconds. Why, it almost sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? If you get stuck, make sure you read up on the many tips and tricks our clever readers have shared in the comments.
- Gemcraft Zero: Gem of Eternity - GameInABottle struck gold with their original fiendishly addictive tower defense game in 2008, and in 2009 they should us that they're more than capable of doing it all over again... and then some! Gems, as you might have gathered, are your power in this title, and different colours have different abilities that you can combine or plunk in towers and traps to destroy the incoming waves of beasts. The game boasts a substantial upgrade tree, and the enormous amount of achievements to get and levels to grind somehow manages to plug directly into that part of your brain that goes "hahaha, no, we're not getting anything else done for today". It's one of those rare titles that even has the potential to win you over even if you're not normally a fan of the genre, and still stands as one of the best examples of both tower defense and sequels done right today.
