Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world. While most people think of it as a game of combat and silly dances, the truth is that it has a fairly significant building component as well. Given the fact that you couldn’t really practice building outside of the game proper until recently, there was a real need for a place to practice. That’s the most charitable assumption one can make when looking at Fort Building Simulator, a game that absolutely banks on your familiarity with Fortnite to get you to play the game and that really functions only as a practice mode for a more popular game.

Available as both a Chrome browser game as well for download to any iOS device, the game Rooftop Snipers offers the super-casual gamer and their friends a mildly engaging and laugh-inducing experience of shooting various projectiles and crazily jumping in order to dodge and shoot and push opponents off a steep height like a city rooftop or a blimp.
There’s a reason that there are so many stick figure games. They’re easy to make, yet the art style can blend seamlessly into almost any genre. There’s a stick figure version of just about everything, from racers to action-platformers to hardcore RPGs. It makes sense, then, that there would be a stick figure version of Grand Theft Auto. It might not have the cars, the satire, or even the over-the-top fun, but it would still feature stick figures beating each other up. Stick City is the game that tries its best to pull off that particular effort, and it fails miserably in doing so.
It can be difficult to figure out exactly for what a game is aiming. Such monster games seem to be all about player experience. Others seem to prioritize an artistic statement over everything else. There are still others, though, that just seem to be a channel for microtransactions. They put a few basic systems in place, add in a couple of money and time sinks, and then hope that players won’t realize the game they’re playing doesn’t really deserve the money they’re asked to spend. If ever there was a good example of this type of game, it is Smash City Monster Battles.
Flip Diving enables you to experience the extreme cliff diving and gives you control of a cliff diver. Your objective in this cool sport game is to make successful dives to earn points and coins. Controls are extremely simple: click once to begin your dive, and then again while your diver is in midair to tuck. You don’t have much control over what angle your diver launches at — he sways back and forth while you’re holding down the button, and launches when you let go.
Happy Wheels is one of the rare games that can use simple mechanics without getting boring or repetitive. The game offers a map, basic steering and acceleration, and ragdoll physics, then tells players to go have fun with them. At its core, the game is a simple sidescroller, but getting through the map in one piece isn’t really the point. Continue reading
Drunken Boxers is a different type of fighting game. Instead of the typical athletes who try to box against each other, there are two people who appear as though they have been drinking a little too much who enter the ring. You can choose either a one-player or a two-player game. It’s best to select a two-player event so that you aren’t fighting against the computer. Continue reading
