Nuclearoids is a simple game where you are given goals to destroy certain spheres in each level. It’s basically a puzzle game…it’s simple…but also addicting. The game is definitely more than a 5 minute game and looks, as I said, simple. I think it’s one of those games that most would over-look, so I think it’s worth posting here. The game is really fun and will draw you into completing it rather quickly. Definitely recommended for at least a 5 minute check out, though I’m almost certain you’ll play longer than that.

Burrito Bison is another one of those “Kitty Cannon” style games. You fire a Bison Luchador out of the ring and try to get him to escape his Candied Captors. The game overall is very simple, and it looks great, both are good qualities for a 5 minute game. No you won’t FINISH the game in 5 minutes but you can play for about 5 minutes and come back. Chances are though that you will play longer than 5 minutes, as the game has quite a charm to it and is pretty fun. For those who like games like Flight, this game is very fun and deserves your time. Check it out.

I haven’t done one of these in a while…sorry about that. So to do another belated Armor Games pick, how about some co-op?
The Light Temple is a 100% co-op game. The objective is to get both Fire Boy and Water Girl into their respective doors while making sure to collect the gems on the way. Fire Boy is the only one who can come into contact with fire and collect fire gems, just as Water Girl is the only one who can come into contact with Water and water gems. This game is better off played with 2 people rather than just going at it by yourself, although you can if you want. It also makes it rather easier to play with two different people. This game is a nice pick up and play flash game where it the gameplay elements kind of come to you easily, although things like lighting mirrors might be trial and error for you at first. I’d recommend giving it at least 5 minutes of your time (be warned, you might go longer than 5), and definitely if you have a partner with you.

For those who do read my Armor Games picks…sorry I’m a week late ^^’. Now on to the game.
Exit Path is like…Portal…kind of…from a 2D perspective…and very indie. The whole point of Exit Path is to get from one side of the screen to the other. You are confronted with multiple obstacles and dangers. If you die time will reverse until the last check point on that level or, if you haven’t passed a checkpoint, the beginning of the screen. The game is simply that, and at first glance it might not seem like much, and to be honest it is rather simple…but…so was Super Mario Bros. for Nintendo and that game is legendary, and one of my favorite old games might I add. Exit Path has a rather Portal-esque feel and has very Portal-esque jokes in it, while having no voice acting. The point I’m getting to is, try it out, it’s really a good game and deserves a try. It saves so you can play for 5 minutes, leave, and come back if you don’t feel like playing all the way through.

Corporation Incorporated is something that seems to be a little rare in flash games. It’s a “tycoon” style game in which you run a Corporation. The money in the game is gathered from your workers clicking their mouses…yes…that’s the money…mouse clicks. Well anyway the game starts out giving you a bit of money and some objectives. When you complete all the objectives you win the game, it’s a simple tycoon game, that’s no fun right? Well actually I’m rather fond of tycoon games, and this one is just one of those good ones. Actually, if it could be sold if it were a dollar or two. It’s all in all a good tycoon game, and although it can be hard to distinguish a flash game as sticking out, it does that in my opinion. Really, if you like tycoon games and maybe a strategy game or two then check it out.

Age of War 2 is a pretty sweet little game, for those who like Tower Defense anyway. The game centers on creating soldiers on the fly as well as building up your tower to fight against your opponent’s armies. The game looks rather simple and might not look like it’s all that fun. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The game is pretty sweet. It also incorporates a nice idea for the genre; you go through different ages and when you upgrade (or your enemy upgrades) the background changes with it. The style of the game gives you multiple ways to actually complete the game. It’s better played than described, so go check it out. Oh, and don’t forget to upgrade your armor and attack of your units and towers from the upper right corner of the game.

Ok so this game is one that I’ve wanted to do for an Armor Games pick for some time, but there have been some other good games too. It’s not the absolute best flash game I’ve played, but I seem to go back to play more of it and try to get farther in the game a lot. The game is based on a rogue-like RPG, Elona. What is it? Well, simply put, it’s a shooter. Your main goals are to gain money, level up, and survive all the days (if there is an end). This game is actually rather in-depth, and has the option for some moral choices as well. While I’m no fan of things like “robbing” people, you have the option of doing so in this game if you really need money, I for one do not rob even in this game. If you’re into click shooters, this is one to check out. I’ll warn you though, it can get rather hard.

I know that I originally started this as a monthly thing, but…well…bi-monthly isn’t too bad now is it? The second Armor Games pick this month is Shell Shock Live. This game is an “artillery game” done in the style of games such as Worms. The game is a pretty cool idea, it’s online. When you score hits on other players you gain experience and level your tank up. You then acquire new weapons for use as you level up, so the better you play, the more weapons you get. This game is pretty sweet, and I highly recommend trying it out. If you like the Worms games or other “artillery” style games, you will definitely like Shell Shock Live.

This Armor Games pick is a rather interesting game. If you are an avid player of flash games chances are you’ve seen the rather violent kitty canon game, as well as other variations.
Flight has a bit of charm to it. The music has a nice flow to it and keeps the game going rather well, aside from a bug that causes music to play over itself sometimes (at least I have that problem on my system). It’s a rather simple game: throw the paper airplane and try to get it to go as high and far as you can. A main part of the game is moving on to other levels by going a certain distance across the screen. Overall, the main focus of the game is to upgrade your paper plane and get it to go farther and higher continuously by adding things like boost, lighter weight, better aerodynamics, upgrading the overall design, etc.
Flight is a rather fun little flash game and it deserves this month’s Armor Games pick, as well as a bit of your time. I recommend trying it out.
Well, I’ve decided to start a column posting up some free flash games from Armor Games, aka “Armor Games pick”. I plan to do at least one a month, maybe two. The first one will start with two games, Warfare 1917 and Warfare 1944.
ConArtist, the same guys behind the Last Stand games, created these two World War 1 and 2 games. In the games your goal is pretty much the same, create soldiers/tanks on your side of the battlefield and push the enemy back on the other side. The Warfare games are done in an almost “action” rts style. In Warfare 1917 instead of having to gather resources, you simply have to wait to spawn units. In Warfare 1944 resources come automatically and they come rather quickly which keeps the game flowing nicely. Unless you make really bad mistakes you won’t be too far on the losing end. The graphics of the games are rather good. The developer(s) spend a decent amount of time it seems on actually making the game look good and not like every other flash game.
Overall Warfare 1917 and 1944 are pretty good games. I could see more games of this type being made and me enjoying them. If the games had more levels, were downloadable, and had more to them, I could see buying them for about $5 actually. I highly recommend you try them out, even if you aren’t really THAT into flash games.
