Ode to Pixel Days is a new retro platformer designed with a smart and thought-provoking storyline that’ll certainly keep you wondering about it for a while. In Ode to Pixel Days you follow Hans, a young boy who has a crush on a cheerleader, but Hans is far to shy to say much to her and feels that he is too ugly to be with someone so stunning. Hans decides that he must contort the world to be able to be with the cheerleader by making everyone appear to be the same. What he learns along the way of his More >
Possibly one of the best known Flash games makes it return, for it’s second sequel Fancy Pants Adventure: World 3! Once again you play as Fancy Pants, a well animated stick figure, sporting some slick orange pants. The games aren’t usually too difficult, but the main attraction to Fancy Pants has always been the slick controls, that you won’t find in any other game, and the unique level design that has you running upside down at times, doing flips and simply running like a hedgehog for most of the game. With the combination of slick controls, unique level design, amazing art and More >
It seems like this week has been full of epic sequels. Today, Fancy Pants Adventure World 3 was released on Armor Games and I was so excited when I saw it. If you’ve not played Fancy Pants before, fear not, the game isn’t too storyline oriented and you end up aiming for different things each game. Although, the same good fun is there, with slick controls, awesome graphics and incredible gameplay. I haven’t gotten too far in the game, but I’ll be sure to write up a review later, and maybe post a walkthrough for the game. Be sure to More >
Super Pig is a relatively new platformer with a unique twist – only your spilt blood will allow you to see the platforms and various dangers!

Much like many of the early platformers and RPGs you must rescue your girl from danger! This is a unique platformer that I haven’t seen before and that made it a fun experience that allowed you to wonder what was going to happen next. If you More >

Music ties in with the theme of the story and creates a unique and mysterious atmosphere. Here’s the official More >
Alight (in dreams) is a new art adventure game that takes you through the dreams of a young man as he rethinks and relives key events in his life that lead him to view the world a gloomy, uninteresting and dull, resulting eventually in suicidal thoughts. I’d describe this as an art game, because the game is mainly focused entirely on the storyline and the thoughts of the character, but unlike many art games that I’ve seen (which is a pretty unpopulated genre), Alight actually has difficulty and in each world you must retrieve an object, bring you on different routes and More >
Back in March I updated you on the Exit Path 2 early beta sign-up and now, John (Jmtb02 on Armor Games) has announced that Exit Path 2 will be ready this summer! Exit Path, if you remember is a fun and challenging platformer that pushed you through challenging obstacle courses in which you had to elude various deadly objects. Although, Exit Path did really pull everyone in with it’s exciting and competitive multiplayer. Not much information has been released, but I’m positive that it’ll be better than ever and the gameplay will be expanded upon even more! As of March, More >
