Free: Two Rooms

Free: Two Rooms

True to its name, Two Rooms is a puzzle game where you’ll need to move two entirely separated pieces to reach a common goal; you’ll need to use sliding walls, crates and buttons.

Free: GlueFO 2.0

Free: GlueFO 2.0

GlueFO 2.0 is a sticky remake of Asteroids, where your ammo comes from the targets themselves; although controlling your ship is easy, it’s balanced by the frenetic pace of the game.

Free: Frontline Defense

Free: Frontline Defense

Frontline Defense doesn’t innovate the tower defense genre, but we still wasted a good hour on it; it has a near-future feel to it, mixing infantry and machine gunners with Tesla towers.

Free: Layoff

Free: Layoff

A Bejeweled-like game that lets you easily layoff folks and use bank bailouts, Layoff seems tasteless at first. However, each victim has a story, making it poignant social commentary.

Free: Replica

Free: Replica

Replica starts off a simple mimicry game, but just wait until they introduce 180 and 90 degree transformations; dust off those spatial orientation skills, because you’ll need ’em.

Free: Bloody Fun Day

Free: Bloody Fun Day

Most games are about avoiding death, but Bloody Fun Day lets you play as the Grim Reaper himself; it’s a puzzle game where your goal is to kill–but with an eye on sustainability.

Death vs. Monstars

Death vs. Monstars

Addictive and fast-paced, Death vs. Monstars is a shoot-em-up with quirky graphics and a catchy 8-bit style soundtrack; note: the backwards aiming can take awhile to get used to.

Free: Bowja 3

Free: Bowja 3

Bowja 3 tasks you with guiding a ninja through a series of adventures; you basically click around to progress the plotline, but the story is interesting enough to keep us clicking.

Free: Globetrotter XL

Free: Globetrotter XL

Most free games have little value beyond entertainment, but Globetrotter XL is an educational diversion that’s still fun; it tests how good your geography is while racing against the clock.

Free: Portal Defender

Free: Portal Defender

Similar to Castle Crashers, Portal Defender is fun hack and slash but filled with inside jokes that should be familiar to the indie developer community and loyal Newgrounds visitors.

Website: 2600 Online

Website: 2600 Online

Packed with 50+ classic Atari games, 2600 Online is proof that good gameplay always trumps graphics; Missile Command and Pac-Man still get our blood pumping, pixels and all.

Free: DNA Heroes

Free: DNA Heroes

DNA Heroes mixes Guitar Hero and genetics, swapping out Guns N’ Roses for Watson & Crick; correct base pairs grow your DNA strand, but miss ’em and you may grow an extra eye instead.

Free: Battalion Nemesis

Free: Battalion Nemesis

Ideal for those who prefer the slower, more thoughtful pace of turn-based play, Battalion: Nemesis is a 16 level strategy game with plenty of modern air, land and naval units.

Free: Dinowaurs

Free: Dinowaurs

One look at the brontosaurus packing a cannon on its back and we were hooked: Dinowaurs is a multiplayer artillery-based shooter with upgradable weapons and even dino clothing.

Free: 8-Bit Watchmen

Free: 8-Bit Watchmen

Hype for the Watchmen continues, but we ain’t complaining: this time we get a Watchmen game with Double Dragon-era graphics; go here and then click on the arcade machine.

Free: Rapid Wars

Free: Rapid Wars

Rapid Wars is as much about gameplay as it is about ambience, with oppressive electronic beats, 8-bit sound effects and multicolored sprites that can easily send you into a trance.

DIY Star Trek Toons

DIY Star Trek Toons

Go where no Trekkie has gone before and create your own Star Trek cartoon, thanks to a partnership between CBS and GoAnimate.com; create your own adventures with Kirk & the crew here.

Free: Totem Destroyer 2

Free: Totem Destroyer 2

Like a backwards version of Tetris, Totem Destroyer 2 tasks you with exploding blocks to move a breakable totem to the ground; it’s not for the trigger happy, however, as patience is key.

Free: Shopping Cart Hero

Free: Shopping Cart Hero

Kids, Shopping Cart Hero is actually a sophisticated physics teaching tool. That, and it lets you launch a rocket-powered cart with three of your buddies inside while you do a superman.

Free: The Tower

Free: The Tower

The last thing we need is a Defense game to consume our time, but The Tower proved too much to resist; your goal: protect a “heart” block using a variety of defensive blocks and spells.

Free: Divine Generals

Free: Divine Generals

Most of the free games we feature are quick and dirty, but Divine Generals is a strategy game a-la Civilization with armies, buildings and research; in short, plan on a long lunch break.

Free: Perfect Balance

Free: Perfect Balance

Don’t let the zen-like music or lack of pieces fool you; Perfect Balance is in many ways harder than 99 Bricks as you try to keep pieces from toppling despite control over the drop point.

Free: Space Pips

Free: Space Pips

Unlike yesterday’s Aliens Must Die, Space Pips is quite a bit more fun and frenetic, with responsive controls, plenty of upgrades and debris that sounds a bit like wind chimes.

Free: Aliens Must Die

Free: Aliens Must Die

With atrocious English and a maddening four-axis control system, Aliens Must Die does get a bit annoying at times; still, it’s fun enough for a quick session during coffee breaks.

Super Apocalypse: Recycled

Super Apocalypse: Recycled

What Super Energy Apocalypse: Recycled lacks in graphics it makes up for in depth; it’s a basic RTS where you’re tasked with building a base to defend against mutant alien zombies.

Free: Dodge

Free: Dodge

Most games are about shooting, so were a bit surprised at how much fun Dodge is; your goal is not only to avoid enemy fire, but to lead it right back to them for some spectacular kills.
