Webgame Wednesday: Midnight Massacre
Halloween is here, so let's make with the monsters and stuff. Midnight Massacre finds you trapped in a theater with all sorts of werewolves, mummies, ghouls and the like. Use your handy shotgun to dispatch them. But try not to blow the heads off the innocent victims. Good. Now reload, because there's plenty more where that came from.
Webgame Wednesday: That's My Moon
That's My Moon has you defending a tiny ball of rock that's being constantly bombarded by meteors and missiles. Sort of a stationary version of Asteroids, the colorful game has you blasting shots, nonstop, into space in an attempt to survive just a little bit longer. Hit the missiles and you can grab up some coinage as well. That's valuable when you want to upgrade your weapons and even your moon itself. An ever-increasing selection of powers keeps this arcade-style shooter evolving and involving.
Webgame Wednesday… On Wednesday! Nuclear Plant
Not to put any pressure on you, but in Nuclear Plant, nearly all life on Earth has been exterminated by nuclear war, and you've been placed in charge of the planet's last plant. Your job is to grow it to maturity–which would be a lot easier if it weren't for the waves of marauding mutant insects and animals. Hold them off as long as you can. Upgrade your guns and research new equipment… between blowing away wave after wave of flesh-hungry monsters. Like I said, no pressure.
Webgame Wednesday. GARE: Sapphire Mechs
What if you could magically transport the old Atari 2600 game Combat into the neon-lit world of Tron? Well, you might end up with something like GARE: Sapphire Mechs. This nifty action shooter has you piloting a digital tank though a grid-like maze. Upgrade your machinery, follow the various mission objectives and try not to get blown to bits.
Webgame Wednesday: Castle Wolfenstein

Over the years, Alibi employees have wasted a lot of man-hours playing video games at work: Rogue Squadron, Quake, Unreal Tournament. But Castle Wolfenstein was the game that first sucked us in. To celebrate the release of this groundbreaking first-person shooter, Bethesda Softworks has placed the entire original game of Castle Wolfenstein online for free! What are you waiting for? Go kill Hitler!
Webgame Wednesday on Thursday: Bullet Heaven

Grab all the coins you can to purchase bigger weapons, more hit points and .. bombs, baby!
Webgame Wednesday on Thursday: Experimental Shooter
Do you like to shoot things? In video games, I mean? Well, Experimental Shooter might just be the ticket for you. The objective of this graphically simple, almost Asteroids-esque shooting game is ... to figure out what the objective is. Each level requires you to blast some little white balls. But how? Devious puzzle action only adds to the action. Gotta love that soundtrack too.
