Game: Zilch – Don’t get nothing!

January 18th, 2009

Just my luck, just when I think I’ll spend a weekend doing work, I find another addictive Flash game online! Zilch is a basic game where you score points by rolling dice (very similar to Yahtzee), with the aim of getting 10,000 points. However, if you fail to score 3 times in a row (scoring nothing means you get “Zilch”), you lose another 500 points.

Quite a fun game trying to decide whether to “Bank” (which you can only do once you have 300 points) or rolling again and risk losing everything (but standing to gain a few more hundred or even thousand points).

Games: Grow Island

Yippeee! I’ve just tripped over another of the “Grow” family of games. Grow Island is basically a game where you’ve got to grow an island (simple eh! 😀 ), by selecting what items to concentrate on improving first. Sort of like a simple sim-city.

Desktop Tower 5778 MapAt long last, I’ve finally completed the “Medium/Normal” level of Desktop Tower Defense – scoring 5778 points, all 50 levels cleared and 18 (out of 20) lives remaining (only the two flying bosses got away – and one of those only just: he had less than 20 health left).

5778 still keeps me out the top 100 though (7406 is the 100th highest score), but I’ve spent waaay too much time it now so now I’m going to try to forget about this addictive game.

I may just need to edit my “hosts” file on my computer to stop myself play Desktop Tower Defense – it’s proven very very addictive! No wonder the author is earning nearly $8,000 a month. Some people will resent him for that, but I think good on him: he’s come up with a fairly unique idea of a good simple game and given it away free – he deserves to get rewarded….

(added: It appears the developer has even set up a new blog about it – so keep an eye out for other variants of the game).

Now back to those towers….

Game: Desktop Tower Defense

When Jeremy Zawodny issues a warning about a game, then it is advisable to listen to him as he knows what he is talking about….

Desktop Tower Defense is an annoyingly good game! I’ve only reached sub-3000 scores so far so just one more game….
