Online games you should check out

I am sure that most if not all of you have already played online games. Some require plenty of experience and time combined with a premium user account. I don´t really want to talk about any of these cash cows but rather focus on the simple, free games, which one might play once in a while to have fun or relax for a little while. These games are, of course, just like anything eles in the world, a matter of taste. Nevertheless, you might want to read on and find out, whether you might enjoy the arcade game “Jewelanche”, the puzzle game “Gluey”, the action game “Defend your Nuts”, the sound mixing game “Break in the Road” or the strategy game “Home Sheep Home”.

Jewelanche – an arcade game

.

When playing through the 30 levels of Jewelanche, your goal is to connect at least three equally colored jewels – the more the better – to make them disappear while collecting credits for each combo. You better hurry before the jewels fill the whole box and make its bottom crash and end your game. Besides, you might want to think twice before opening Pandorra´s boxes falling down in between jewels: you never know whether there´s a tool or more obstacles inside. Once you´ve gathered enough credits, you can go to the shop and buy tools, which help you make it to the next level. You can also purchase more storage room for your tools, enhance the luck possibility in Pandorra´s boxes or supply some jewels with differentially effective bombs. When connecting equally colored jewels containing one or more bombs, you get rid of the jewels surrounding the explosion. The higher the level, the more obstacles try to keep you from connecting the jewels: e.g. stones, ice or an enhanced number of jewels. Make sure to have the right tools before giving the next level a go but don´t waste your credits =) I love it, definitely an additive arcade game!

If you´re into puzzling “Gluey 1” might be the perfect free online game for you. In case you prefer puzzling in combination with an equal level of arcade, you should give “Gluey 2” a go. In either Gluey version, your task is to free a tank from colored blobs. These blobs are either small and static or bigger with one or more pairs of eyes. You can only get rid of blobs with eyes by clicking them. Be careful though! In order to get enough/more credits try to click strategically clever in order to combine equally colored blobs and eliminate eyeless ones. The bigger the blobs, the higher the credits when getting rid of them. Of course, this task gets harder with every level as blobs might change color, darken the whole tank or be locked in the first place. Give “Gluey” a go and eliminate the blobs watching you!

.

In “Defend your Nuts“, you are a squirrel trying to kill all evil monsters, bees, zombies and giants to keep them from stealing your nuts. Your first weapon is bow and arrow. The more credits you gather, the better the weapons you can buy. You might also want to purchase bombs which eliminate the intruders on their way to your tree. The best way to get rid of monsters is to shoot tem in the head. If you hit them elsewhere, you will need several arrows/bullets to stop them. The level is complete once you have killed all intruders before they managed to grab and successfully get away with three of your nuts. Good fun!

Break in the Road – a sound mixing game

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a DJ but are not sure whether the crowd would actually love or hate your music? Then “Break in the Road” is your game of choice. Take a walk through a virtual city and collect any sound you think is worth being mixed up for your songs. These sounds might include a car driving down main street, a builder hammering, a girls playing the guitar in front of a shop, guys talking in the pub and so on. If you think you have recorded enough sounds, go back to the studio and mix them up the way you want. In the end you present your music mix to the audience in a club. The “crowdometer” will tell you whether you could convince the crowd. If that´s not the case, you better go back to the studio and give it another go. However, if the crowd is loving your track, your DJ career might not be that far off in the real world.

Home Sheep Home – a strategy game

.

In “Home Sheep Home” you have to guide Shirley, Shaun and little Timmy back to their barn as quickly as possible. The faster you manage to help the sheep cross rivers, fences and other obstacles on their way home, the more credits you get for each level. However, it might sound easier than it actually is since Shirley is overweight and Timmy is so little that he finds it hard to jump either high or far. Only once all three sheep successfully pass all obstacles in one level you can go to the next level.
