Even more online and retro free games
You lucky people. You lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky lucky people. Even more freebie games. Remember this is only a slice of the vast amount available on the web. Get searching. Even something as banal as "free shockwave games" in google will get good results. Here's a few I found that way (not all of them though). Anything you find not already covered, please feel free to mail me the url or post a comment, but no driving games. I don't like driving games.
Ok, maybe one.
Redline Rumble (shockwave) is a driving game with a role playing idea behind the backstory. You are kidnapped and must drive to survive. It's got some stunning graphics for a mini-game and shows just how much can be done with Shockwave.
To concentrate on their games for a moment though, Shockwave themselves have a good selection including Redline Rumble above and Boulder Dash Treasure Pleasure (shockwave), the latest in a long line of Boulder Dash games, a platfrom classic. It's not just action games there either, offering mind games and multiplayer sections as well.
Mini Arcade (shockwave) offers great value (free) with two games in one. The picture is from Star Striker (the one on the right) which I preferred but if you like a bit more realistic approach to spaceship handling, click the one on the left. Candystand are the people who bring us that game and many others.
Aqua Breakout (shockwave) from Madcool Games Galore is really cool. In their own words, "It's is like Break Out but you're under water as a submarine! Check it out!"
Please excuse me now for a proper retro moment as I've found a really playable version of Frogger (flash) at Gameroom 2000.
There, now that's over, time to tell you about just one more. A bit of a frantic one, Chopper Rescue (shockwave) has you running around trying to avoid enemies and rescue your stranded soldiers. It's brought to us by those clever people from Clever Media. For controls & description click here
