Well, here's this new series of blog posts I'm doing: Fun Online games.
They're all free and quite entertaining despite their simplicity or silliness/weirdness. They're worth a try, so I'm providing the link to each one.
Also, I'd like if you post your score on the game (if it has a score) or how far you got in your replies to the blog. I'll do the same for my post.
So, without further adieu (I say that a lot...) I present to you my first review: Avalanche.
Basically, the point of the game is to climb as high as possible without getting smashed or getting touched by this red liquid that keeps rising. You play as this little white square. I have no idea what it is, but I think it might be a marshmallow. Anyway, these blocks keep falling, and you're supposed to climb them and avoid getting hit by the red liquid that keeps rising. But you also have to be careful not to get smashed by the falling blocks.
Sounds simple, right? It's actually harder than it sounds. The blocks pretty much fall at random- there's no pattern. So it's all about luck and logic. One thing that I've found helpful for geting up a height of blocks is jumping against them.
The backround music is really catchy too. It reminds me of those old arcade games, which is nice. And I think you can find this game on other sites that aren't blocked at schools.
It's actually very fun and addicting, despite how it sounds. So give it a try!
