Scary as shit.

If you’re a fan of things like the , and those 60’s horror films starring , you’ll probably either love or be in need of fresh underwear after playing Exmortis. Big props to the creator, .

I know I should probably cut down on the frequency of these updates with regards to the games I’m playing, so I’ll try to restrain myself and suggest again you go take a look at the on ‘s .

Flash games are fun.

I’ve just been playing on a bunch of the on ‘s . One game of note is by contributor . My highest score on so far is 1730

On another note, I’m finding ‘s reviews and games page a whole lot useful than some other listing pages, possibly more so than , mainly due over that ‘s has.

Happy accidents.

After finding of a for another , which I had played a day or so ago made in , involving the placement of so that they don’t cross each other. Can’t seem to find that one.
Anyway, on with the guide (contains s:

Item One.
The red-roofed building. This eventually grows into a lumber mill. The lumber mill produces a jetty and boat in it’s penultimate and final growth stages.
Item Two.
The Tree. This eventualy grows into a sprawling forest, as well as spawning a large individual tree in its final growth stags. It also bears bombs as it’s fruit which are used later.
Item Three.
The green-roofed building. This eventually grows into a large fortress, and in its final growth stage is used as the launching point for a battle with the purple dragon spawned from the purple blob.
Item Four.
The blue square of Water. This fills up the holes in the landscape created by the red demon. As well as giving the jetty to go and the boat to sail on.
Item Five.
The style building, bottom right of the selection list.
Item Six.
The Rock. I’m not exactly sure what function this takes in the RPG mode of the game, but it does indeed grow.
Item Seven.
The Treasure Chest. A mountain erupts from beneath it, sending it pretty much straight into it’s final growth stage in one go.
Item Eight.
The flight of Stairs. Last object to be placed, easiest to max out. This creates a two-room dungeon in the RPG mode.

PS: If you haven’t checked it already, I suggest visiting blog for info on some great games, as well as general gaming news. I just noticed actually covers the game I was looking for in the first place!


Grrrr: Update on beta testing and other things.

Update on beta testing.

Awaiting problems to be solved with korean company is a problem. I got sick of lag and the banality of certain games, I went over to their account cancelation page, only to find that their crappy ASP written site won’t actually let you cancel your account. Goodness knows how this would affect thing if the game was subscription based.

I did however manage to cancel my GoonZu account. I just found the game to be to unstable, overcrowded, and not well enough translated at the current time. Plus whatsup with the weird mini winamp ? Trademark Infringement anyone ?

Good(ish) News.

After about 3 days, I managed to move my Flyff character another couple of feet up the street in Saint Morning before I got disconnected. The server wasn’t even busy.

Good News.

Dofus is due to open to public beta in a few days time, its french, but at least thats a european language (and I do have a qualification in reading it somewhere) so the translation shouldn’t be as bad as certain games I might mention.

My ISP finally got around to apologising for a screwup they made on overcharging for the broadband package, hopefully they’ll refund the extra cash they tried to suck out of me.

Game playing/testing

Since for various medical reasons I haven’t been able to do any serious web development for a while, I got back into beta testing games.

Current beta tests

Flyff
Flyff, or Fly For Fun is a 3D MMORPG made by Korean company Aeonsoft. It´s billed as having “The first flying system in MMORPG”. It´s a lot of fun, however I do keep on getting disconnected at random times (and I’m not alone. To balance out this problem it is totally free (at least for the moment anyway). Well you get what you pay for so to speak.
Maple Story
Maple Story is a 2D MMORPG. I generally play it when I’m cut off from Flyff. Its totally free, currently in beta test. The game will make its money via a cash-shop system, whereby players will be able to purchase items for real-world cash.
Dark Throne
A browser-based MMORPG.

Other games I’m playing

Kings of Chaos
Browser-based MMORPG
Sudoku
Flash version of the logic puzzle Sudoku. This version is the best I’ve found, although there is only one puzzle a day.
