Webgame Wednesday: Hopagon

Hopagon is a one-button platforming-style game. You play a small, smiling block who must jump (or, in the parlance, "hop") over larger, frowning blocks. Sounds simple, no? Since you've only got one button to mash, though, this game isn't going to make it easy on you. Your jumping must be incredibly precise to get through each fast-paced, seconds-long level. What are you waiting for? Get hopping!

Webgame Wednesday on Friday: Dream Tower

Dream Tower borrows certain elements of your favorite platform-style games. You'll be collecting stars and jumping on enemys’ heads to stay alive. But you'll be doing it while climbing a rotating, 3D tower. The perspective adds a whole new wrinkle to the platform-hopping mechanic. Throw in some devious monsters and a few cannons, and you've in for some vertiginous fun.
