Free Downloadable Game: Eversion

January 5, 2009
Eversion by Zaratustra
Eversion is a very odd and brightly colored platformer. The goal is to collect as many gems as possible and get to the end of the level. The platform mechanics are stiff and the gravity is set way too high. The music/sound attempts to be retro but is really just annoying. What really kills this game is that the initial world is very similarly laid out to the original Mario Bros…this just makes you want to search out a free ROM of the NES classic.

Free Flash Game: Pig Race

January 2, 2009

Pig Race by Picaso Games
Pig Race is a free flash game where you move your pig into 3 lanes using the arrow keys and jump with the space key. The goal is to collect a lot of acorns while avoiding obstacles…all in all it’s a very simple concept like most flash games are. The graphics are nice and a notch above typical flash fare, but ultimately Pig Race is a flimsy, forgetable experience. There’s much better flash games out there.
