The premise of Splitter 2 is simple: drag your mouse through wood objects to allow a perpetually happy smiley face to roll to its destination, or just hack things to bits if you get stuck.

They definitely don’t teach these moves at boot camp: Fragger is a free Flash game where your object is to lob grenades at dim-witted grunts; hint: brush up on your projectile motion.

Great Red Herring Chase

Despite being set to a relatively chill jazzy piano soundtrack, The Great Red Herring Chase is anything but relaxed; it’s a car chase done entirely via typing with a classy film noir feel.

Free: Upgrade Complete

Upgrade Complete is a space shooter with a cool premise: a purposely unfinished game, you’ll use your points to purchase everything from menu buttons to music. Thanks, Garth!

Free: Mushroom Life

Free: Mushroom Life

Conway’s Game of Life is older than we’ve been alive, but gets a fresh dusting of spores with Mushroom Life; the different mushroom stages of life make this just as addictive.

1066 looks simple, but we easily burned an hour playing it; it’s a turn-based strategy game which recreates medieval battles in England with battle charges, arrows and taunts.

Pirate Defense is yet another tower defense game (and not much of a looker), but gets interesting once you use traps; it takes some getting used to, but is worth the Yarrs and Arghhs.

Alright, so nobody really loves traffic, but I Love Traffic gives us a peek into the harried lives of traffic lights; it starts off easy but quickly turns frenetic, making accidents a near inevitability.

Free: Chroma Circuit
