3D Worm is a fast reactions game based on the legendary arcade and mobile device game ‘Snake’ (which became a worldwide phenomenon after it appeared as the flagship game on new age cell phones in the 1990’s). Here in 3D Worm, you control a very hungry little worm that constantly slinks around a rectangular 3D grid in search of delicious red and green apples. Your goal is to consume as many apples as possible without colliding with the grid’s outer wall, or without coming to contact with your worm’s tail. Each time your worm gobbles up a piece of fruit, it grows longer (making the game increasingly difficult as you progress).
This straight-forward and addicting fun action game could be a good fit for younger gamers who enjoy a simple, keyboard-tapping challenge. The game requires quick reactions, fast fingers, keen observation skills, good concentration, and the ability to respond to an ever-changing environment. Now, have you got the dexterous skill-set to ‘worm’ your way into the record books with an amazing high score? Happy apple munching!
Metroid Elements is an old-school raster graphics-style platform game based on the classic Nintendo action adventure series ‘Metroid’, and nostalgic fans of 1980s arcade classics should really appreciate the modest 2D graphics and fast gameplay on show. You play the role of legendary intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran, and have to forcefully deal with all kinds of slimy and dangerous space creatures throughout an inter-connected 2D side-scrolling universe. Similar in style to the original version of Metroid, you are tasked with exploring the vast caverns in a pyramid on the planet W.A.D.3., blasting any enemies that stand in your way along a challenging quest to eliminate any lasting Metroid threat.
This addicting online shoot ‘em up game combines the classic elements of iconic platformers, space-alien shooting games, and good old fashioned, arcade-style adventures. Once you get used to the sensitive controls, you need to exhibit a deft touch on the keyboard in order to travel deep into this labyrinth (some accuracy in your shooting is also very welcome). Happy bounty hunting!
Fans of classic arcade games take note; it’s time to get hooked on an awesome circular version of the iconic 1980’s game ‘Breakout’! Circle Break is a surprisingly addicting online skill game based on the legendary arcade title where you use defensive ‘pong-style’ paddles to block a ball from escaping the game screen. However, unlike the original Breakout game where everything was square-shaped and your ricocheting ball had to eliminate rectangular blocks; in this version, everything is circular! This includes the shape of the playing area, the contours of your paddles, and the ever-changing spheres that your ball attempts to destroy. The catch here is that your ball can escape from anywhere on the 360 degree grid, so you’d better have your fast fingers ready to rock!
This challenging and enjoyable arcade game could be a good fit for nostalgic players who enjoy testing themselves against cool ‘re-boots’ of their favorite old childhood arcade games, while younger gamers should enjoy the fast-paced, ball-rebounding action. Quick reactions, keen observation skills, and sharp keyboard tapping action are all vitally important as you try to conquer 13 grueling levels featuring all kinds of changing circular blocks, awesome power-ups, and defensive maneuvers. You can even try out a cool 2-player feature where you and a friend work together to block the ball from escaping! Are you one of the ‘Arcade Elite’ gamers who can adapt to any style? Or will Circle Break ‘break’ down your proud defenses? Happy blocking!
Sushi Cat is a fun and eccentric puzzle and skill game where you have to drop a bouncy, fish-loving cat into an obstacle-filled playing field where he has to collect 30 yummy pieces of sushi in each level. Sushi Cat is based on the classic ‘Plinko’ game-show activity where players try to get an object into a bin at the bottom of a pinball-style grid featuring a host of moving pegs and obstacles. In Sushi Cat, Whiskers the friendly blue feline wants to bulk up as much as possible in order to impress a pretty pink cat – so he’s set his sights on munching as many tasty fish dishes as possible (sushi is a traditional Japanese rice dish usually prepared with raw fish – a scrumptious delicacy for a cat!).
This fun and unusual arcade game actually relies a lot on luck (and the effects of gravity) as you cannot affect the movement of your hungry cat once he has been released into the playing field. However, good judgment and instinctive timing definitely come into play as you have to carefully choose the correct place and optimum time to release this hungry cat. Watching a kitty bouncing around a playing area, and gobbling up fish has never been so entertaining! Happy sushi collecting!
Are you nostalgic for classic arcade-style games? Eagerly searching for a simple online challenge with retro graphics and a cool 1980’s motif? Well, look no further than Distopix - a straight-forward yet addicting ‘falling block’ skill game with a twist! While there is a constant stream of differently-shaped blocks that you have to dodge and weave around, you also have to contend with a frequently changing game screen that morphs from large to small, from vertical to horizontal-shaped, and flips from side to side at regular intervals.
This fun and original 1-player arcade activity for all ages requires good concentration skills and quick reactions as you try to keep cool under the added pressure of the constantly shifting game grid. It should prove a hit with any fans of good-old block moving activities online such as the original ‘Pong’ and ‘Breakout’ games. How long can you avoid the falling blocks?
If you’re a big fan of RPG arcade games, we bet that you’ve played as some pretty wacky and unexpected heroes in your time - Italian plumbers, hedgehogs, apes, aliens and more.

Your simple goal to survive and cover as much distance in meters as you can!
In real life, turnips are a good source of calcium and protein, but in this all-action virtual world – your superhero turnip is the source of gravity-defying jumps, amazing agility, and rapid-fire explosive powers! Quick reflexes and sharp reactions are really important here as the side-scrolling landscape repeatedly throws up increasingly-difficult jumps and more bad guys flying around menacingly. Being a vegetable has never been so challenging!
World Cup Breakout 2010 is a fun online arcade game where you have to advance through a series of soccer-based breakout challenges! Breakout games are an iconic type of 1970’s and 80’s classic games where the player has a paddle at the bottom of the game screen, and has to eliminate rows of bricks in the top half of the game screen with a bouncing ball! In World Cup Breakout, the bricks to be eliminated are in the form of opposition soccer players, and you have to blast them off the game screen with your own soccer player paddle and rebounding soccer ball. Loosely based around soccer football’s World Cup, you have to choose a country, and try to negotiate 4 rounds of 6 challenging levels.
This unusual and eccentric sports / arcade game mash-up requires sharp reactions and good observation skills as you have to keep an eye on the increasingly fast-moving ball and move your paddle to deflect it accordingly. Earn cool power ups in each level to increase your chances of progression to the World Cup Final! You can choose from the heavyweights of the soccer world, for example, Spain, Brazil, Germany, Argentina, and Italy – but at the end of the day, it all boils down to your mouse control skills and quick reflexes! Ok Soccer Superstar, remember to keep your eye on the ball! Happy brick breaking!
Pikachu Pokemon Rescue is an addicting platform adventure game for kids, based on iconic characters of the ever-popular Pokémon series. Unlike classic Pokémon games where you catch, collect, and battle the exotic creatures, here you have to guide Pikachu (the cute electric mouse and all-round Pokemon legend) on a treacherous platform-jumping journey through 25 challenging levels. Leap from ledge to ledge, avoid bad guys, unlock doors, collect power-ups and more.
This straight-forward arcade-style activity isn't just for die-hard Pokemon fans. It could also be a hit with those kids who love a good platform challenge where you have to dodge, weave, and jump to avoid coming into contact with the bad guys.

Are you ready to write another exciting chapter in Pokemon history?
Caveman is a wild and wacky "Digimon Vs Humans" arcade-style platform game where you play the role of a slingshot-wielding caveman who has to rescue his girlfriend from a horde of time-travelling, dinosaur-like Digimon characters! Hundreds of these nasty creatures have amazingly fallen through a space-time warp – sending them all the way back to the caveman era (for those unfamiliar with the popular game series, Digimon are digital monsters of various forms living in a parallel universe that originated from Earth's various communication networks). Unfortunately for you in the caveman era, these troublesome monsters aren’t friendly – and you have to defeat them using a simple but devastating mix of platform jumping skills, sling shot shooting, and good, old-fashioned rock smashing!
This fun and eccentric caveman battle adventure is reminiscent of classic arcade platform games like Mario and Donkey Kong in that you have to leap from ledge to ledge and defeat bad guys on a noble quest to save a Damsel in distress! Quick reactions, accurate shooting skills, and fast fingerwork are all important abilities here, with the lumbering Digimon becoming more dangerous and numerous as you progress. Ok Slingshot Hero, it’s time to show these Digimon just how determined a primitive human can be!

Be careful out there - each robot has awesome missile capabilities - you can be blasted out of the race if you don’t watch your back. You need to exhibit slick driving skills to succeed, with extremely tight corners on each track, and outrageous overtaking maneuvers to be attempted.

Ok Robot Renegade, let’s Blast Off!
Monsterland: Junior Vs Senior is a fun and increasingly challenging physics-based puzzle arcade game where you have to unite two block-shaped family members (little and large monsters) using good strategy, patience, and some understanding of the effects of gravity. Senior is a rectangular-shaped, grumpy old monster who just wants to sleep the day away. However, Junior, a fun-loving, mischievous little square-shaped guy, is determined to wake Senior up by jumping on top of him! Junior cannot move by himself, so your job is to help Junior reach Senior by strategically removing objects (other monsters), and creating momentum and pathways to connect the two together.
Strategic planning is the key to this tricky brain-teaser, as you have to carefully plan out a route to get Junior to his older, sleepier friend. Your creative engineering skills and problem-solving abilities are also important, as you often have to build bridges and pathways to ensure Junior gets the chance to gleefully ruin poor old Senior’s siesta.

In Tetris’d, you have to acrobatically and dramatically dodge and evade falling blocks (meteorites), and survive for as long as possible in this intense and perilous environment. You play the role of an highly-mobile, high-jumping Stickman under pressure, and you have to stay out of harm’s way as best as you can by weaving and leaping around to avoid the structures falling fast out of the sky. Perform dangerous flips and cool wall jumps - just be careful not to get ‘Tetris’d (i.e. – squished!) being over-confident.
This fun, skill-based game requires super-quick reactions, doubly nifty fingers and a cool head. It should be ideal for fans of old-school retro platform activities like Mario and Donkey Kong, and any gamers who love high-octane survival games. Good luck!
