Playing: The Last Door: Chapter 1

I found the last door on armor games, but noticed right off that they have their own website with the rest of their content. thelastdoor.com. You have to register to play it on the developer's webpage, but there's more content available on there, so you won't regret signing up. The game comes as a series of chapters. This is one of those times when you get to experience something a little more old fashioned than the internet usually provides... waiting.

This game is like one of those old fashioned radio shows your grandparents used to listen to. It's spooky, but not scary. It sort of creeps you out slowly until you get a shock. Then everything slows down again. Each shock being a little more shocking than the last.

The game is done up in bit graphics. It gives a nostalgic feel and you don't get any of the adobe flash lag that you sometimes get with visually appealing games. The visuals are still creepy though. From the very beginning title screen when the raven is shuffling around, you can tell that this is a game that is still going to keep you weirded out even without hi-res graphics.

The game doesn't disappoint, and I'm not going to spoil it, but I'll say this much... I'm pretty sure I hate birds.

I'd suggest you check out their page, maybe even donate to the kick starter. They have an area on their page, where if you've donated enough, they can add your character into a special version of the game! The game is also available on their website, where you can not only check out your own character they make for you, but you can see the other generous contributors and immediately be part of a virtual community where you will forever be bonded with strangers.

Take a look at the game.

Playing Dildo Hills 2

So I'm on armor games, checking out the new flash games and I see Dillo Hills 2. I've been on here for a while and I didn't know there was a Dillo Hills 1. I checked it out, apparently there is one made a couple years back. So this is the long awaited sequel to another game I've never heard of.

Here's a video of me playing that game for a half hour. You'll get the idea how slow and painful powering up is in this game too. There's really no way to make money any faster, even if you're good. You pretty much just curve up a little bit at the beginning and then the rest of the upgrades are slower and further in between and meaning less each time.  The only upgrade that is worth getting is control and that one gets expensive real quick. So, if you want to progress faster, you might as well just watch my video in fast forward.

I hope you enjoy watching me play the game more than I enjoyed playing it.

Bait and Switch

This game is a unique twist on bass master. Instead of catching the bass and marveling in the size of it, you blast wave after wave of aquatic jerks into oblivion. The game is made by Poponga and available (at least) on armorgames.com.

Here's a couple screenshots of the game, although you might want to watch my YouTube video to get an idea of what the later levels are like before you play it. Also, you can see if you beat my score of 2,870,135 (I did die five times though).

There's also a survival mode you can play after you beat the game, where you play until your inevitable deat at the hands of millions of exploding fish and piranha. There are also these enemies that look like killer whales.

Check it out. You can play the game here: Bait and Switch
