  • There should be more interactive youtube videos
    By on December 21st, 2011 | No Comments Comments


    I just found this on Facebook from one of my friends’ “shared a link”. The video was based on the now-pretty-famous Chinese movie called Ip Man, a Wing Chun master from China. For the first minute or so, it plays just like a regular youtube video but that’s when it starts to become interactive. The video requires you to press the pause button so that the villain can stop moving so fast (I don’t want to spoil too much detail of the video). Then the next villain shows up and attacks our protagonist with her loud voice, you now have to press the volumn button to mute her voice. Finally you need to turn back time to find out the traitor by clicking the time bar back to the first minute or so.

    The movie is obviously a PR created by Wing Heong BBQ Meat, a company which sells dried meat. I shouldn’t be surprised by such interactivities, afterall, youtube uses Adobe Flash and we know Flash can be very interactive and engaging. Just look at how many Flash based game sites out there. But I look forward to see more of this type of youtube videos where you get to interact with the video and become part of it. Again its nothing new but companies should start using more often. I have also found out that you can now purchase youtube views which will help you grow your channel even more.

    Check it out:

    And NO, they are not paying me for posting this. I thought this video was rather interesting so that’s why I’m sharing with you guys.

  • Visual novel game – Heileen: Sail to the New Wo...
    By on January 28th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    I have never been a fan of those Japanese anime style visual novel games where you get to choose different actions for each situation and having a different ending every time. But being a video game fanatic I had to try out everything at least once and that was a long time ago.

    Before discovering Tycoon Games, I had no idea there are English versions of such visual novel games. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since some people from the States and Canada or even in Europe are probably into these kind of games too.

    Tycoon Games offers anime style adventure games as well as dating sim games. I had a chance to try out one of the adventure games called Heileen: Sail to the New World since they offer a Flash based version of the game with one of the episodes from the full game, a very convenient way to try out games without downloading anything to your hard drive. The downloadable demo includes the first three chapters of the game.

    The first thing I noticed was the game’s soothing music and it actually reminded me of the Japanese version of this type of games. The game pretty much starts off as soon as you mouse click the screen. You play as Heileen, the main protagonist of the game and immediately you will be talking to other characters such as Magdalene, Otto and Lora. You will be presented with a few options for the next action, your action will determine which ending you will see. Although the Flash demo is relatively short, you still get to take a glimpse of what kind of story you will be expecting from the full game.

    In terms of graphics, characters as well as the background images which basically tell you where you are current at, are very well drawn. The graphic designers have done a great job at drawing the characters, very anime.

    Overall the game is pretty decent, the fact that I played through the demo and read through all the conversations shows the game is quite interesting. If you are into visual novel + adventure + anime games then you should check this game out.

  • Free Tower Defense Game – Flash Element TD 2

    Flash Element TD 2

    This month is a bit quite in the gaming section, at least no new releases interest me yet. But today, I was lucky enough and found this game through BuzzFeedFlash Element TD 2 created by CasualCollective. As you can tell from the title of this post, you might have figured out TD stands for tower defense. It plays just like PixelJunk Monsters, well obviously since both are tower defense games. And even though its free, I couldn’t stop playing it. Its that addictive!

    Flash Element TD 2 has three levels of difficulty (easy, harder and ouch) to choose from and each with its own path to test your defense tower skills. I tried harder twice and I didn’t do too well. I was able to get to the 50th level on easy but could never beat the final wave of what the game calls them, creeps. The objective is simple, defend your elements by building/selling and upgrading different types of towers. If one of the creeps managed to steal one of the elements from you, you will still have a chance to kill it before it gets away from where it came from. The element will be dropped at where the creep died, once all elements are stolen, the game is over.

    There are 5 main types of towers – arrow, cannon, sticky, sniper tower and fire tower and their corresponding stronger version, so a total of 10 towers. There are also five elements, each will allow you to build the corresponding type of tower. So basically you can build the type of tower by having that particular element. There is also a store where you can purchase three elements which are not given to you at the start of the game. You can pay to have your elements dropped anywhere on the path back to where they are suppose to be and you can increase your interest earned from finishing each battle. Also want to point out that the sticky tower, which is similar to the Ice Tower from PixelJunk Monsters

    What this game differs, in a good way, is you can pay to dare which the next wave of creeps will have 2x more HP than normal and double dare, well take a guess, 4x more HP AND move faster! I have yet to try double dare as I have enough problem killing the creeps in the last few stages. I did manage to win a few dares at the start of the level where everything is still easy to kill.

    There are two other small, but fun features that I also want to mention. These creeps speaks funny and there is an option to make them explode when killed! The corpse explosion really satisfies my sadistic side as the game puts it!

    Flash Element TD 2 is one hella addictive Flash game. Anyone that is to tower defense games should give this one a try. The main concept is basically the same, defend! But some of the features really make this one shine.

    If you’re looking for some more flash games there are some pretty addictive puzzle games out there. The Impossible Quiz is a pretty good one. It has a bunch of questions but the answers are not as easy as you might suspect. If you want more tower defense games, Bloons Tower Defense 3 is another good game. Think you’re up for the challenge?
