Webgame Wednesday. Girls Like Robots: Nerdfest

By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Mar 6 2013 3:11 PM ]

Girls like robots. The cool ones, anyway. This fact is proven by the new Adult Swim game Girls Like Robots: Nerdfest. It's really just a mini version of PopCannibal's popular mobile gaming series. But this cute 'n' cartoony puzzle game is worth checking out in any form. Your object is to seat people at various events. You must follow certain rules, however. Girls, for example, like to sit next to robots. They don't like to sit next to nerds. (Sorry, nerds.) Nerds don't like sitting next to other nerds. Figure out the proper seating chart and it's on to the next puzzle. Nerds!

Webgame Wednesday: Broken Robot Love

By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Sep 26 2012 12:52 PM ]

Broken Robot Love casts you in the role of, well, a broken robot. You're a small, sad toy that has been cast aside. Your goal is to return to your young owner, a better and stronger plaything. The only thing standing in your way is a backyard maze full of of lava, pirates and other deadly obstacles. Sucks to be you. This puzzle platformer will have you placing blocks and jumping quickly (and I do mean quickly) in order to make your way to the next treacherous level. No dawdling! Get moving!

Webgame Wednesday: Little Wheel

By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Jul 11 2012 4:35 PM ]

Most point-and-click adventures are dull affairs, rewarding blind poking more than anything. But Little Wheel is something altogether different. First of all, the story is an interesting one. You play a robot who must reactivate his mechanical brethren after centuries of deep sleep. Second of all, the shadow-puppet animation is fluid and quite gorgeous. Finally, the game itself is a great deal of fun, feeling far more interactive and action-packed than most games of this type. The whole thing won't take you ten minutes to solve, but its a satisfying little sci-fi journey.
