Tap Tap Radiation

Tap Tap Radiation is a free iPad game that will get you tapping on your free time. The game is much like Dance Revolution only this time, you let your fingers do the tapping. Developed by Tapulous, it is a fun and addictive game that's made even better for its iPad release. There are more than 30 free tunes that you can play in the game but thanks to its addictive quality, it won't be long until you find yourself going for the paid songs as well.


Chaser is a simple art game that has a straightforward gameplay. All you have to do is chase a blue figure man and keep him in the screen for as long as you can. The longer you can do this, the higher the score you'll get. It's really this basic. The blue dude will constantly run away from you so you have to keep chasing him. You'll start slow but eventually you'll be able to increase your speed while collecting various things as you go along. Even though the game has a simple premise, it's fairly addicting especially once you start off. It can easily consume hours and hours of your time without you noticing. If you're up for this, then give this one a go.

Hazard: The Journey of Life

Hazard: The Journey of Life is a dreamlike new game that takes you on a journey through life. It's a first person game where you don't fire any guns or even have any enemies. Instead, it focuses on taking you to a trip down the many facets and complexities of life. The game was among the Grand Prize Winner in the Make Something Unreal as well as awarded Best Game in Game Connect Asia Pacific. The game features a unique and mindblowing graphic design that places a visual form in the abstract concepts of life. It's an interesting 3D adventure game that requires patience and an open mind in trying to figure out what life wants you to do. Definitely a must-try if you are into challenging experimental games.

Loop Raccord

Loop Raccord (or Raccord Loop) is a cool and unique game that's a current nominee for the upcoming 2011 IGF Nuovo Award. Developed according to the Experimental Gameplay Project's Neverending theme, the game showcases experimental gameplay that is interesting and captivating. The gameplay is a bit tricky to explain. Basically, you have to find the exact moment in an animated video or film and sync it with the next roll of video. Your goal is to create an infinite loop of movement by connecting every single video clip. Even though it's a bit tricky to do, there's no denying that it's a lot of fun. Created by Nicolai Troshinsky, it's one of the most original games out there. Just a word of warning though, it is a bit addictive but keep in mind that there's really no real end to the game.

Neon Plat2

NeonPlat2 is a colorful and slightly psychedelic platformer. Created by Jayenkai, it's actually an update from last year's version. This one does feel brand new though, with great graphics and much more coherent gameplay. They've also incorporated a co-op version so you and your friends can easily play at the same time. In the game, you find yourself bouncing, or better yet, falling off platforms that are floating through space. You can only complete a level if you "fall" and color all of the white \platforms. Along the way, you collect balls, take down enemies and even collect energy balls. The game can be fun and addicting to play. It also carries some serious HD graphics which add to the already enjoyable gameplay.

Magic Planet Snack

Here's another wizard you can learn to love. Magic Planet Snack is a colorful game that finds you playing a wizard that has accidentally turned himself into a worm. Now, you go on a quest to satisfy your hunger and devour the rest of the wizards that don't like you very much. In your journey, you end up devouring plenty of sweets and other tasty treats. You even chew your way and devour entire worlds just to quench your appetite. In the process, you gain points. Magic Planet Snack features fun and pastel bright colors. It also has a fun gameplay that anybody can enjoy off the bat. The actual storyline is a bit morbid (read it here) but thank god, the developers don't really dwell on it that much. Anyway, this'll certainly give you a good time for an hour or two.

Cut & Paste

Cut & Paste isn't your typical sidescroller game. This cute and engaging game was actually a finalist in IGF China 2010. The game features unconventional gameplay, where players will need to cut and paste objects in order to complete puzzles and obstacles. In the game, you can use a handrawn character to move from left to right. The entire game is like a big flipbook and your character can jump from one page to the next. You can also go back several pages if you need to. As you go through the pages, you sometimes encounter pictures that are of a different shade; you can cut these and keep it in your inventory. Easily paste it onto another page that requires the item that you obtained. Definitely a cool game you should try out.


There are plenty of interesting games out there but once in awhile you encounter games that simply bend your mind. Uin is one of these games and in some ways, I guess, it's expected since it's from the same masterminds as those who created La La Land. Uin lets you travel into a surreal land in search of your brother, well, not particularly because you want to but simply because there's nothing to do. The game is Aldridge's best work to date and engages and questions your mind and your sanity in some cases.
