It is very common knowledge that I love games- even more so when they are free. Arcy Darty is a game site with over 120 categories of games and a countless amount of actual games to play through for free online. Different categories include Puzzle Games, Batman Games, Fighting Games, Zombie Games, Toy Story Games, Racing Games, and so many more. My favorite games in the mix are the ones that remind me of classic NES and Sega Genesis games.

Turbo Tanks

Turbo Tanks.
I can play this game for hours. It is a side scrolling adventure racing game where you take control of a tank and have to charge forward going around obstacles and battling “evil” tanks. I didn’t know a tank could jump so high or go so fast. There are 15 levels of the game, and each gets harder than the last one. So it is sure to keep your attention for as long as it has kept mine! Click this link to play turbo tanks.

Mega Man vs Ghosts N Goblins

Megaman vs Ghosts N Goblins.
This game is one of the reasons I love the Internet so much. Never could I have imagined a crossover of two of my favorite games growing up – Megaman and Ghosts N Goblins – but here it is! Due to the power of fans and the accessibility of technology. The game is exactly what you’d expect from the title; you are Megaman and you have to fight through leagues of the undead. ’nuff said! Click this link to check out all of their megaman themed games!

Coconut Run

Coconut Run.
This game is a little different than Turbo Tank and Megaman vs Ghosts N Goblins, as it is a puzzle game. You have to design a cart that can carry coconuts to a destination through a tricky course. It is very much a thinking game and don’t expect your first designs to work, I know mine didn’t! Click here to play coconut run!

If you take the time to play any of these games, I want to hear about it in the comments! Which was your favorite? Did you find any other awesome games at Arcy Darty?

Hollywood the Game, Free Online Game

With Hollywood the Game approaching its ten year anniversary, we thought it might be fun to talk to a player and get their perspective on the game and playing it. Built around a community of movie fans and writers, Hollywood the Game blurs the line between a simulation game with a full interactive city and a writer’s workshop where people get feedback on their scripts and see how they play to an audience of their peers.

Here is with Golithus had to say about being apart of Hollywood the Game (aka HTG):

One of the few reasons I enjoy games immensely is because of its ability to bring me to another world, to experience something that’s unlikely to happen to me in real life. One day, I stumbled upon Hollywood The Game (HTG) and curiosity draws me deeper into exploration. At first glance, it’s huge, it truly is a virtual Hollywood, with its own map, studios and other movie business stuff. I was impressed, so I joined.

Some consider HTG a platform of writing, a place where they can put their creativity and writing skill to use; some consider HTG a gaming experience, a mix of simulation and tycoon. While those are very true, I consider HTG to be more than that. HTG is a community of like-minded persons from all around the world, shaping a little Hollywood of themselves. In a way, it is kind of like a mix of Second Life or The Sims that focuses solely on the movie industry.

Players can truly shape the world here, be it writing the next big hit, create an impressive movie franchise of your own, or even push your favorite underrated star into the A-list. While the game is mainly about making movies, it’s not the only thing to do in the game. One of my favorite aspect of the game is the variety of careers, I can be a journalist that follows the life of people in the virtual Hollywood, or perhaps a grumpy critic that is hard to satisfy. If you want to express more than word, be a graphic artist and design posters. Heck, you might even find inspirations in the game for your real life project.

Hollywood The Game is not without flaws; it has a fairly steep learning curve and progression can be slow. With patience though and you might find HTG to be a fun place to stay.

You can check out Hollywood the Game for yourself here and join in for free.

This post is brought to you by Car Games World.

CarGamesWorld

One of the best parts of the Internet is how many games are available to play for free. If you don’t have a lot of funds and are not able to pay for very expensive next generation consoles and the equally as expensive games that go with them, you are not out of luck. There is no shortage of creative websites that have put together very cool games. Car Games World is one of these such places.

Car Games World has seven different categories with more than fifty games. One of the categories is Parking Games, which includes such games as Parking Space, Parking Master, Violet Park, Docking Perfection, and parking game. A second category is Truck Games, with games including Police Truck, Rocky Monster, Space Hummer, truck mania part 2, Trucksformers 2. My favorite of the seven categories is Racing Games, with such titles as Offroaders 2, Age of Speed 1 and 2, Spy Car, and Smash Palace. Lets take a look at a few of the games that are available to play online for free.

Age of Speed 2

Age of Speed 2. From Silent Bay Studios, this free game is a racing game that takes the user to the future and challenges you to master tracks with huge jumps and a fast pace. The gameplay and controls are basic. You use a combination of the arrow keys to steer, accelerate, and brake and the x key for using power-ups.

FBI Chase 2

FBI Chase 2. From Car Games 9, FBI Chase 2 reminds me of the classic Nintendo game Spy Hunter. You are racing down the road trying to find criminal cars and run them off the road.

Space Drifting

Space Drifting. From 101 Car Games, Space Drifting combines two awesome things; racing and space. You face off against other racers in a future like setting where you earn points from “drifting” around corners and in circles. You need to hit minimum point sets in races to move on.

If you like one or another game, there is most likely something on Car Games World that will help you kill many many hours. The above are only a very small sampling of the variety of games the website hosts. Head over there and come back and leave us a comment with what games you play and which is your favorite.

HTG AdEarlier this week Hollywood the Game turned 9 years old! A big congratulations goes out to the team behind the game and its community of players old and new! It is rare for a Hollywood simulation game to have such longevity, but this one doesn’t appear to be ending any time soon!

Hollywood the Game (or HTG for short) is one part writing community and one part City simulation, which turns Hollywood and moviemaking into a game. You write a movie script, pitch it to player run studios, cast it with your favorite actors, design creative including posters and trailers, advertise the movie, release it, and finally watch the box office roll in. What will you do with all of that virtual cash? How about buying a house in HTG Malibu, a fancy car from one of your favorite movies, or how about games and DVDs based on virtual movies released in the game? The more items and awards you gather help your future releases in different ways. And with totally open game play, you can find yourself taking on a number of jobs, from producer or studio head, to a creative company, a casting agent, editor, video maker, or even a real estate agent selling virtual homes and offices. Become a big wig in a completely player run virtual Hollywood (the screen shot above is part of one of the many City maps).
