Shopping Cart Hero

Shopping Cart Hero
via kongregate
Today's flash game discovery is a simple time waster named Shopping Cart Hero.  Based on the simple yet addicting how-far-can-you-go theme, this game ads extras that you can purchase with the money you get after each turn.  After pushing your cart down the ramp, jumping in, and launching yourself off of the ramp, you have to balance yourself in the air so as not to crash and kill yourself.  You can risk tricks in mid-air to raise your score.  Addons like rocket boosters and racing wheels will assist your cart while groupies will ride with you and add to your style score.  Give it a try, but don't blame me for the wasted time!.

Upgrade Complete!

Upgrade Complete!
via Kongregate
Upgrading is the best part of most any game, right?  Well you're in luck with this game.  You have to upgrade to even play the darn thing!  Not only do you get to upgrade your in-game ship with new parts and then upgrade those parts, you get to upgrade the game itself.  You might consider buying a preloader and a loading bar, else the game won't do much.  Fortunately they'll give you a loan when you start.  Have fun and come back for more games soon!

Hard, Indeed

Here's a short game to make you think.  Very realistic.  Few games match this one for realism and depth.

Toss the Turtle

via kongregate

Here's a new twist on the skill shoot for distance type of games.  In Toss the Turtle you fire your turtle friend from a cannon by varying the angle and power of the cannon.  You also get three shots from a slingshot to hit him in mid air.  You also get to adjust his forward momentum with the wasd keys.  The real fun comes from picking up money to buy upgrades and other things from the store.  These additions help keep you in a game like this for hours.

Bow Master Prelude

Jason Reinsvolds Bowmaster Prelude
Today we have Jason Reinsvold's Bowmaster prelude.  This is a fun defend-the-castle game with a twist:  You get to pull back and unleash the arrows yourself.  Your goal is to hit the advancing army troops with your arrows and eventually attack and destroy the opposing castle.  After earning some gold and XP from defeating enemy troops you can upgrade your arrows and buy support weapons such as a catapult to help you defend your castle and destroy the enemy.  This game will easily keep you distracted for hours or more.  Hope you didn't need to get any work done!  Have fun!

VVVVVV by Terry Cavanagh

I played a beta of VVVVVV before it went shareware and it's awesome.  It's part obstacle course and part metroidvania game.  Try out this 2 level demo.  If you like it you can either pay the $15 or I'm sure many of you have the skills to find other ways of getting it.

Super Mario Bros Crossover

Super Mario Bros Crossover. What better concept is there than playing the original Super Mario Bros. with characters from other 8-bit NES games? I had played this before, but today I found out that this new version adds Ryu from Ninja Gaiden and the Sophia III tank from Blaster Master. Have fun!

Action Turnip

Here's a simple little flash game to waste a few minutes of your day. You're a turnip who has to get to the end by jumping over chasms and jumping on bats. Simple but addictive. Wish there was something I could do about the intro stuff though. Have fun!
