…It’s TGI Friday: Minesweeper Flash?

Minesweeper Flash

Happy Halloween everybody! Since Trick-Or-Treating isn’t for everyone, here’s a great game to play this weekend: Minesweeper Flash.

Minesweeper is the default time waster for anyone with a Windows computer and a few hours to kill, but with the addition of Flash, it’s a whole new game.

Thankfully, the gameplay itself is still the same, since it’s a classic for a reason, but with all new visuals, and as close to a storyline as Minesweeper is ever going to get (Edit: Actually, I take that back. THIS is the closest that Minesweeper is ever going to get to a storyline.), Minesweeper Flash gives the old dog new tricks, and you’ll be playing like a 16-year-old front desk clerk again in no time.

…It’s TGI Friday: Sling Ice?

Sling IceSling Ice is a fantastic Flash game that puts you in charge of a Sling or a Slingette as you chase after the Oozeville power source elements that were taken by evil monsters.

To play, just stretch your blob, aim, and release. The goal is to move from one grab peg to the next, and as you touch each peg, it turns green. After all of the grab pags have been turned green, a portal will open up and you can grab that to move to the next level.

I profiled the original Sling on DYH a long while back, and Sling Ice is the third in the series, so they’ve definitely perfected things by now, and it shows, with fantastic gameplay, a good story line, and smooth graphics.

Get ready to sling!

…Team Fortress 2 has been Gold Rush Updated?

Team Fortress 2 Gold Rush Update

The Team Fortress 2 “Gold Rush Update” has just been unleashed by Valve, and it includes a new Gold Rush Map, a new Gameplay Type, a unique Item System, and 36 new Medic Achievements.

    Gold Rush is an entirely new level featuring a new gameplay style called Payload. The level is split into three separate areas with intermediate capture zones inside of each major chapter. The teams are split between offense (Blu) and defense (Red) similar to Dustbowl. The goal for the Blu team is to push the bomb payload through the level until it reaches the next capture point, eventually destroying all three of Red’s major bases. Blu pushes the cart through the level by standing near it, with the cart moving faster when more people are close by. If no one has pushed the cart forward after 30 seconds, the cart will begin to move backward until it is pushed forward again.

The new item system is going to be rolling out over the next year, and players will be able to earn three new and unique items for each character by earning some or all of that character’s new achievements.

The new medic achievements are quite varied, and range from Quadruple Bypass (Heal a teammate who’s taking fire from 4 enemies at once.) and Play Doctor (In a team with no Medics, be first to switch to Medic after a teammate calls “Medic!”, and then heal 500 health.) to Big Pharma (Assist a Heavy in killing 20 enemies, where neither of you die.) and Bedside Manner (Be healing a teammate as he achieves an achievement of his own.)

Lastly, if you haven’t yet played Team Fortress 2 (and you really should) then you can try it out this weekend from May 2-4, during which you can play the entire game for free through Steam.

Sweet.

…It’s TGI Friday: Boxhead: The Zombie Wars?

Boxhead: The Zombie Wars

Sean Cooper’s Boxhead: The Zombie Wars game is the fifth in the Boxhead series, and adds new graphics, new enemies (lots of them) and base construction, complete with turrets and barricades.

Because of this new base construction function, you can now play either offensively or defensively, depending on your preferred style of gameplay.

Are you ready to enter the war?

…It’s TGI Friday: Raft Wars?

Raft Wars

Raft Wars puts you in control of Simon, a young millionaire that must defend his newly found gold and diamonds from attackers.

It’s turn based cannon warfare, but with cutesy animation and solid gameplay, it’s actually a rather fun way to kill an hour or two. (Though you may want to mute it, as the sounds gets a little repetitive after a few minutes.)

Are you ready?
