Weekend Download №3
Once again we've scoured the internet from top to bottom (you wouldn't believe the things we've seen...) to find the best casual games you can "download" onto your "computing machine" and play with an input device such as a "lettered slab with keys" and/or a "mouse". If technology continues to progress at this blazing speed, before long we'll utilize motion-sensitive devices to allow us to "control" our games "remotely"! Wii! That'd be fun!
What Makes You Tick
(Windows & Mac, freeware, 30MB) - An adventure game created by Matthias Kempke using Lassie Adventure Studio. It's similar in style to the online game Something Amiss, but with a more complete story and a superb 1800s atmosphere.
Loonyland 2: Winter Woods
(Windows, 8.6MB) - An action-RPG from the creator of Dumb: The Game and Dr. Lunatic Supreme With Cheese. Loonyland 2 is a big RPG with tons of quests, items, achievements and character abilities to unlock/upgrade. It's surprising how deep of an experience it is, yet you never feel overwhelmed. Plus, it's funny. In a funny sort of way.
Acidbomb 2: Rearmed
(Windows, freeware, 25MB) - Featured on a previous Weekend Download, Acidbomb 2 is out and fully armed. Use visual clues from navigating the bomb's grid to determine which tiles are dangerous. Mark them, watch the timer tick down, and hope you didn't miss one. A brainy cross between Minesweeper and picross that definitely shouldn't be missed. A full commercial version of the game was recently announced, so grab this always-free version and get pumped up for more.
(Windows, freeware, <1MB) - Weighing in at an unbelievably small 96k, this quirky game pits two sumo wrestlers against each other in a clash of titans. The controls are a bit awkward and there isn't much to the game, but a little shoving goes a surpisingly long way in this fun diversion.
