When you are at work, and you need a mental break, or you are waiting for lunch to arrive, or you on a long call with a really, really, slow client, you need something to do. You NEED to play a game. What you don’t need is to get involved in a long setup, or backstory. You want to play now. Well, here are some games that you will love, provided you have a computer, and maybe flash.
Continuity seems to be a bare-bones platformer. There are no enemies, no objects, nothing at all. When you hit the spacebarthe screen backs out, and you see the level is made up of little tiles. While this is not surprising or particularly exciting, it is what it is. The arrow keys, which WERE used for running and jumping, now shuffle the pieces of the level around. It is up to you to create a path your character can traverse, collect the key, and make it to the door at the end of the level.
The graphics are basic, but that doesn’t make Continuity any less playable. And if you like this game, the sequel, Continuity 2, is available for iOS.
Pulsus is a classic puzzle game. This is a rather beautiful, flowing system of particles wherein you learn to turn and shape the puzzlewith different objects to complete goals.Move slowly through the game to watch the evolving puzzles of particles or you can take action to try to burn through them to quickly get your best scores.
The emitter, forces and goals all look like round discs. The particles that you have to move are tiny color-coded dots emitting in all directions from the emitter. At first, all dots are in a small bar at the top of the screen. To put a dot on the field, drag it out of the bar, and drop it whereyou want to place it.
The color coded goals should be hit by the particles of right color and it should be filled very fast. The goal will remain full when it gets filled and you can shift the dots around so the particles are diverted to other goals. While this sounds complicated, it is. The great part about this, however, is that you really don’t have to invest time to get started.
Like Jenga? Well, this is kind of like that, but in a ball – or square – or other shape. This game is pretty simple; each level, you’re given a unique 3D puzzle consisting of blocks that hold each other together. Take it apart and you’ll feel like a brainac.
