Flash games :: I'm not working today
« Flash » games are the perfect excuse for not having to work in the office because they are 100% free and do not require to be downloaded on your hard drive. Although a vast majority of the thousands of games available on the web is uninteresting, others make their console counterparts green with envy.

On the one hand we have action games. "Virtual Pursuit" requires agility and is played by using the keyboard arrows to move a cell. The aim is to reach your goal by avoiding contact with harmful bacteria. The spin-off effect of this micro organism makes the game very addictive. An old classic but still as attractive : "Old school Frogger". The player helps a frog cross the road, avoiding deadly traffic. More recent is "Heli Attack 3", a mixture of platform games and "shoot them up" in 2D, worthy of some of the best videogame productions of the 90's. Away from big guns and fights, riddle lovers are also in for a challenge. Inspired by a 'Monty-Pythonesque' hallucinating plant world, "Samorost" is both a video game and an interactive work of art with its share of enigmas. Inspired by a television series produced by Télé Québec, "11 Somerset" will embark the player on a 'point and click' adventure in order to solve paranormal enquiries with the help of science. More recent but worth mentioning are the 'room games', reproducing a rather simple but damn efficient concept. The player is trapped in a room and has to escape by using the clues and hidden objects. The best examples of the latter are "The doors" and "Crimson Room" with their stylish graphics and oppressing atmosphere. Michi-Hiro Tamaï
