brownWe love Glenn Brown. One of the stand-out artists of the ‘Sensation’ generation, he’s now got a mid-career retrospective going on at Tate Liverpool. Go and have your mind boggled.

To mark this occasion, local techno-gurus Glow New Media have made n online game based on his works.

It’s a digital version of those games where you have to switch the suares around to complete the image. Infuriating but addictive.

Play the game here.

hamster.jpgHere’s a little game to pass the time on your designated break today (as it’s just started chucking it down it doesn’t look like a day for going out).

Flight of the Hamsters lets you fire be-goggled rodents through the air to see how far they can go. Bounce of various objects to go further and score more points. Good clean fun.

white-dwarf.jpgIt’s Friday. Woo yay. So here’s a little game to play on your designated break.

In White Dwarf, you control the white circle. Collect the green circles whilst avoiding the red. The more greens you collect, the greater your gravitational pull, which attracts all colours. Use the blue dots to ‘bank’ your collection of greens.

Mindless fun or a thought-provoking and educational representation of the mighty forces of nature that control our very existence? Who knows…

kebab.jpgSo the holidays are definitely over – we’ve all had our first full week back in work. Deep joy!

So, here’s a little game to pass the time on your designated break and brighten your Friday.

I’m not sure what it’s really called, as the site’s not in English, but let’s call it Kebab Tetris for now.

Your first test is to get the game going, as the instructions are in a foreign tongue. I’m not going to tell you how to do that, but it’s an easy challenge.

Once you’re in, you have to skewer the little characters using your kebab stick (contrlolled by clicking and holding your mouse). Once you have three or more of the same next to each other on the stick, they disappear. You have to keep going for as long as you can without overloading your stick.

Sounds rubbish, but is fiendishly addictive.

bejewelled.jpgIt’s Friday, it’s nearly Christmas, some of you may even be going on your work’s night out later, I know we are (w00t!).

What you need is a nice little game to calm you down during your tea break.

So, have a go at Bejeweled, the classic game where you have to re-arrange the jewels to score points. Move them around to form rows of three or more to get points and clear the board. Simple, classic and not too taxing.

Play Bejeweled here.

Chat Noir screen grabA busy day on the blog yesterday meant we didn’t have time to post any festive frippery.

So, here’s the first of some posts to hopefully get you into the Christmas spirit. I mean, it’s less than a fortnight away now!

This is a nice little game called Chat Noir. Must be German or something.

Anyway, the aim is to try and stop the cat from exiting the board of dots by blocking his path. Click on a dot to make it impassible. Then the cat will try and find an alternative exit. And judging by the games we’ve played, succeed every time.

Play Chat Noir here.

Anika’s OdysseyHere’s a nice little point and click puzzle to pass some time on your designated break today.

In Anika’s Odyssey  you have to help a little girl recover her toy bunny that’s been stolen by an evil eagle. Click on the different elements in the landscape to guide her through the various obstacle. Some things have to be done in a certain order, so make sure you have a good old explore.

Takes a while to load, but is good fun.

Blockout screen capNo Friday Fun for a couple of weeks. Hope you’ve all managed to entertain yourselves in its absence – playing with matches and running with scissors etc.

So – here’s this week’s little game to keep you out of trouble: Blockout.

Use your arrow buttons to guide the slippy little brown jobby around the tubes to its eventual ocean-blue home. Manage that and you’ll be flushed with success.

The usual ‘starts easy / gets hard’ rules apply.

Play Blockout here.
