On the whole, I like you folks, and that’s why I didn’t posted this link earlier. But I’m beginning to figure “hey, if I’m going to lose my job because all I do all day long is play this fricking game, I may as well take a few people down with me as well”.
A while ago, the terrific site Jay Is Games held a game design competition. The winner absolutely knocked it out of the park – simple to play, combined with being insanely frustrating and addictive.
I give you Gimme Friction, Baby.
How To Play – since they don’t really give you much info on that front:
Once the splash screen is done loading, click the green circle. That’ll load the actual game.
The rules are simple:
- Click to launch a ball.
- When a ball stops, it expands to whatever boundry it hits first.
- Hit existing balls three times to remove them from play, scoring you one point.
- If a ball bounces back over the line, you lose.
Easy to play, easy to make your wife find you in front of the computer at 3am, slowly drooling on your lap as you try…oh Lord do you try…to beat your personal best of 19 points.
