Friday Fun - Game Lovers Rejoice!Views: 1492

Eileen Brown
Hiya Folks.

Today's How To Geek Newsletter reminded me of a recent
discovery. If you were a "Lemmings" Fan and still have a
thirst for this exact kind of game try out "Penguins" by
WildTangent. Exactly the same premise. A fun game by
anyone's standards without the shoot 'em ups. Although I
(and millions of others) were Doom and Duke Nukem geeks
(back when) I think Lemmings was a tad above for games
valued at "E" for everyone.

A couple of months ago we were looking for Mario Brothers
type games and I stumbled onto Penguins. Although we don't
have time for games much around here, we found some time to
play Penguins! Just as addictive as Lemmings was.

The game the Geek highlighted today seems interesting too.
Lookie-Loo here:

Have any new game titles to share?

Eileen :D

I am a HUGE Mario Brothers/MarioWorld fan!

Where can I find this Penguins game? Googling it brings up tons of results--Whack a Penguin, Bloody Penguin, (doubt those first two are rated E!), Pittsburgh Penguins pro hockey team stuff, etc. I'm lost :(

Thanks!

Speaking of fun games...here are some online ones I'm guilty of enjoying now and then... all of which are really addictive!

Good Night, Mr. Snoozleberg
This is a game where you are Mr. Snoozleberg, an ambassador who gets invited to all kinds of important functions around the world, but who is a sleepwalker! You have to click on stuff ahead of him, as he sleepwalks through different areas to avoid him waking up! The graphics and effects are awesome, and it's really fun to see what stuff you find!

Hints/Help
If you get stuck, here is a site with hints (aka walkthroughs) - but try it on your own first!
http://weirdweb.net/hints/snooz/

Chowder - Bookin' Cook
This cute character on the "Chowder" show on Cartoon Network is part bear, part rabbit and part cat--but is a totally cute little purple guy! He works as an apprentice at Mung Daal's Catering Company, with Mung Daal (the blue guy with the big schnoz and white whiskers) and Schnitzel (or Schnitz), a big rock monster who is really crabby and serious but really lovable! As Chowder, you have to take people's catering orders on the spot, cook their custom dish to order, then have them pay you. And you have to make a certain amount of money before the shop closes, so hurry!

Play Game:
http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/games/chowder/bookincook/preload.swf

Social Slots
This is a game put on by Winster.com, which is like regular black jack slots in Vegas, only you get points for real prizes like movie tickets, gift cards for Amazon.com, Papa John's Pizza, DVDs from Amazon, etc. The trick to the game is that you share your spun "tokens" that others want, in exchange for those you are trying to collect. There is also a chat right on the game so you can talk to the players you are in the room with. Totally addictive! Ask to play "jackpot" or 'jp'. It's team effort at its finest!

Play Game:
http://www.winster.com > register and click "Play" > "Social Slots"

PS - if you decide to join Winster.com and want to play social slots, look me up and add me as a friend! My hand there is 'bwoodzy'.

My Lil' B*st*rd
(MATURE-RATED)
Cartoon Network's AdultSwim.com has lots of games, most of which I find stupid, difficult or disturbing beyond words. This is actually kind of a cute one, but the content is a bit say, adult (language, character drinking alcohol). You are the owner of a pet "b*st*rd" (strange unknown species of animal--think Japanese Tomogachi or Nanopets) and you raise it to learn how to take care of itself (toilet train, feeding, playing frisbee, etc.) and as it grows up to be a teenager and then young adult, you keep it from smoking, drinking, humping stuffed animals, and teach it to use the computer, etc. Eventually the pet poos gold coins and trinkets, which when you click them, are cashed in toward your total money allowance for supplies, etc. Kind of stupid, pointless and a bit frustrating, but a cool time-waster. The more effort you put into the game, the more points (and gold poo) you get, to spend on supplies, food, etc. Guided narration walks you through the game when you start, in kind of broken Japanese-English. But fun!

Enjoy!

Hiya BJ.

Penguins by WildTangent. Go to:
http://www.wildtangent.com
At the bottom center click on View All Games.
Type "Penguins" in the search box.
The one I have is "Penguins overrun the zoo"
I think it is the first one on the list.

You'll LOVE IT! I bought the game and downloaded it instead
of playing online for coins.

Eileen :D

We were looking for some easy games for kids. I need some
little kid games for grand-sugars for a new laptop and
Penguins (WildTangent) really hit the right spot for us.

There are some other great arcade type games from them also.
