Webgame Wednesday: Recursion


Recursion is a nifty platformer, neatly haunted by the ghosts of Super Mario Bros. Your ship has crashed on a mysterious world, and you must escape by collecting stars and raising flags. (OK, I don't get the connection either.) What makes this one stand out is its warped puzzles and clever art style--which transforms 8-bit gaming into a near-needlepoint experience.

Webgame Wednesday: Super Mario Bros. Crossover


The original Super Mario Bros. is a certified videogame classic. You've played it hundreds for times. But what if you could play it again ... only with other classic Nintendo characters instead of the plumbing siblings? Yup, some crazy hacker has created Super Mario Bros. Crossover, a flash version of the game retrofitted with characters like Samus from Metroid, Link from The Legend of Zelda, Simon Belmont from Castlevania, Bill R. from Contra and good old Megaman. Now you can use their abilities to blast goombas to Kingdom Come instead of just jumping on them. Good times!
