Webgame Wednesday: Cursed Treasure

Astute videogame historians and those who wasted their lives in actual arcades in the early '80s (guilty on both counts) may recall a great vector scan game from Cinematronics called Rip Off. The object was to pilot your zippy little tank around the screen and protect a pile of crystals from road-raging invaders. Cursed Treasure relocates this basic idea into a fantasy world. Trust me, this is one highly polished, extremely addictive game. Plan to set aside most of the day if you crack this puppy open. The game is a combination between real time strategy and tower defense. Build up your weapons, place them wisely and hope those successive waves of orcs and paladins and what-have-you don't get their grubby hands on your crystals!
