Brain Box.

Hey, I have a video for you. It's nothing special. Just your everyday bog-standard representation of the transformation of two stellated rhombic dodecahedrons from a cube.

No biggie. Check it out.

I Believe I Can Fly.

How would you get from London to Timbuktu in 42 days?

Wrong! The answer is to build a car that can fly of course. Don't believe me? Well, These Guys could back me up.

"A group of daredevils set sail on the ultimate magical childhood dream adventure today, traveling in a flying car for a 42 day journey from London to Timbuktu — a place that’s had a mystical, “middle of nowhere” reputation for decades. The ‘Parajet Skycar’ can change from ground to flying mode in a mere 3 minutes, and will make the epic 3,600-mile (5,800-kilometer) journey by both land and air."


Holy cow. I want one.

The Colour and The Shape.

Erm... I'm not sure that this needs a great deal of introduction. It's an Online Kaleidoscope Generator. It works well and the results are cool. Give it a shot!

Hide & Seek.

Suggestively-named game ahoy! In this one you need to shine your laserbeam into the dark void to locate the circles that are hidden there and zap them out of existence. The more you can hit in one shot, the more points you'll get! Get going and remember: These Balls Are Made For Hiding!

Gotta Lotta Bottle

This shit is bananas. Seriously. There's a guy called Harry Eng who is referred to on the site I found as a 'Master Bottle Filler'. Which essentially boils down to being able to put stuff in glass bottles that should not fit at all. Apparently this is done without breaking the bottle and putting it back together afterwards.
For example:

That's a pack of cards, with 6 bullets through it, tied with a rope containing a knot that is wider than the neck of the bottle.


Anyway, there are some more examples Here and they're all amazing. One comes with a quote from the man himself as to how it was made. Frankly, it's incredible.

The Dark Knight. I've seen it. You've seen it. It's great. But wouldn't it be better if it was a NES game? Well, no. Of course not. Still though, a man can dream...

A Jorb Well Done.

Looking for a job? You could do a lot worse than This! I'm seriously thinking about submitting an application. It'd be tough but I think I'm up to the task. Are you?

You & Me Have A Disease.

Oh lordy lordy, how I love a good physics-based puzzle game. Recently there have been loads of them because some spod created something called the Box2D physics engine and... no wait, come back! Ok, I get that you don't care about this stuff. I'll just get on with it. This one is called Colour Infection (it's actually called 'color' infection but I'm using the proper spelling) and the name is apt. Not only does it apply to the gameplay, which involves 'infecting' coloured balls by touching them to change their hue but also, the colour scheme is every bit as gross as a game with 'infection' in the title would suggest. Anyway, that's enough of that. There are 2 parts and you should play them!

Part 1.
Part 2.

Oh My God, It's a Mirage.

Wanna play some classic retro games? Well good luck with that. I got them all here but they may not be just as you remember them. These games come from an arcade called Retro Sabotage. Give one a spin and you'll see why. Try Space Invaders, or Pac Man, or Pong. Luckily, my favourite old game has been left unscathed. Or has it? Nooooo, not Breakout!

Ah well. Anyway, enjoy! There are loads more Here.

I'm tellin' y'all it's sabotage.

Achievement Unlocked: Read Blog.

So many of these flash games feel unrewarding, don't they? You plough through them and all you get is the chance to do it all again with each new level. Console games are usually more generous, particularly on the Xbox 360. Each game contains 'achievements'which give you points for different tasks or secrets found. I genuinely think they're a great idea and would be very happy for them to spill over into other aspects of life (Achievement Unlocked - 12th cup of tea today!) but for now, I would just be happy to see them in online flash games.

Turns out I'm in luck. Here's a game dedicated simply to the unbridled joy of unlocking achievements, 100 of them to be precise. It's called... Achievement Unlocked! Gotta catch 'em all.

Happy Happy Joy Joy.

Frankly, I would be failing to do my job as a link-finder if I didn't use this as the first one of the year. Stirring stuff!
