Google Chrome users can play the game called Angry Birds, for free. Interacting with the game involves using your computer mouse. This allows you to adjust the launching angle and power when launching your angry birds. You can also download the game for offline play. Either method is free, but you will need to have a Google account to download the game from the Chrome store. A fun and very popular game.
It’s been many years since I ever played a Carmen Sandiego Game. This version seemed quite familiar when I first ran the app. Still looking for clues (Who is the V.I.L.E. agent is) and you chase after suspects from place to place, get your arrest warrant and nab the criminal. You still level up from solving cases The graphics are Facebook friendly. The game is still in beta and fans of the old game might want to give it a try.
For those who are curious. Here’s what the old game looked like
Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego (game) Wikipedia Entry
For the most part this is a straightforward Tower Defense game except that the player’s units are themed after characters from the Marvel universe.
Dr. Doom and the Lethal Legion are launching a major assault to capture Stark Tower. Can you stop them?
- Ms. Marvel ( this is oddly the weakest unit in the game and is the only unit that can’t attack aerial enemies)
- Spider-Man (this unit slows down and damages enemies)
- Iron Man (better damage and range)
- Cyclops ( even better damage and range)
- Thor ( Can attack multiple targets)
You progress through the game by defeating waves of enemies that come in from different areas of the “board” as they attempt to make their way past your defenses and into a particular building on the “board”. As you move up levels in the game the number of enemy units per wave increases. The units also get stronger, armored ground, flying and boss units start appearing. I’ve gotten to at least level 11 but it usually ends soon afterwards.
Your units can be upgraded of course to increase ( damage, range, rate of fire) for the right amount of cash, which you acquire by defeating enemy units.
I find it to be a fun, free online game to play from time to time. Play it through your web browser and make sure you have Adobe Flash Player installed.

Yes, I play. It actually started when a “friend” of mine on Facebook, sent me an invitation to Play Mafia Wars. I didn’t really take the time to think up of a nickname but somehow I found myself clicking on these buttons, and leveling up.”My Mafia” is really quite small and so I don’t really get the full effect of the game ( Mafia attacking another mafia). Aside from the timers, the game seems to be just static pages.
I got a different invitation to a game called Cafe World. This game uses Animations and Sounds via Flash (Player). You create a virtual avatar and run a virtual cafe by having your character move and perform actions via the mouse. It’s alright but you really have to time things out (When to serve a dish, when to make more, cleaning). I’d probably play The Sims if I really wanted to be doing that. Haven’t really been there in a while so the virtual cafe must look like a mess.
I ran Farmville once but never really got into. Just not my type of game I guess.
Lucky for me, I’ve never been tempted to give Zynga real world money. I just don’t get it.
