Attack of the Elemental Walkthrough
In Attack of the Elemental, tower and monster have elements; Neutral, Fire, Water, and Earth. Each element has weakness against other element. Any element against neutral will deal 100% daamge. Fire against Earth is 150%, but Earth against Fire is 50%. Earth against Water is 150%, but Water against Earth is 50%. Earth against Fire is 150%, but Fire against Water is 50%. Same element will deal 75% damage. It's better to build a tower that is elementally stronger than the monster element. This is the best way to complete this online flash game. Once you reached stage 6 and above, it is best to build one Brightwick Tower to buff all your towers, as it gives 30% attack speed and damage. It may not seems like a lot of stats added, but it's super effective if all towers received the buff.

Don't Escape 2: The Outbreak Guide
Don't Escape 2: The Outbreak Walkthrough
The Base
1. Travel to the far left of the base to grab the shovel.
2. Exit the house and grab both the house keys and the wire from the dumpster.
3. Head into the alley beside the house in order to grab the bullet wedged into the wall and the wire cutters stuck into the ground.
4. Exit the base by exiting through the broken fence into the woods. In order to be most efficient with time spending, start by heading to the bottom-right location (-10 minutes).

The Church
1. Grab the axe stuck in the stump on the bottom right.
2. Take the bullet lying on the ground. The little bastard can be found on the ground left of the third fence post from the church. Because it is barely noticeable, it is best to use the description that appears on the bottom-left of the screen to properly locate it.
3. With no other use for the church, now exit and head to the top-right location (-10 minutes).

The Gas Station
1. Take the bullet and the bullet and empty fuel canister from the front of the gas station.
2. Enter the gas station, and loot the cash register and the medical kit for a coin and painkillers.
3. From the shelf, take some batteries and a water bottle.
4. Enter the backroom of the gas station using the axe from the church.
5. Take the room's bullet and rubber hose.
6. Exit the gas station and walk over to the top-left location (-10 minutes).

The Shop
1. Insert your coin from the gas station into the shopping cart. Now you can carry heavy items!
2. Using the shopping cart, grab the reel of metal by the fence.
3. Talk to Jeremy, the blonde man on the right side of the screen. He will provide you information about his lost glasses. You can trust him about his repayment.
4. Enter the shop, take both the bottle of alcohol and the battery-less camera form the store's shelves.
5. Notice the hole in the shop with the growling noises? Upon clicking on it, you'll find a trapped zombie and Jeremy's glasses. You have a bullet saved for him.
6. Power the camera using the batteries from the gas station. Then, take a picture of the child's drawing outside the shop. There is a man who may want this...
6. Now exit the shop to head over to the last unidentified location, the crash site (-10 minutes).

The Crash Site
1. Grab the 9mm handheld gun form the ground near the police car for our zombie buddies.
2. Attach the rubber hose from the gas station onto the police car's fuel tank and collect it using the empty fuel cannister. Now its full!
3. Do not bother with the sticks from the bush, they will only hinder you. Now, make the return to the shop (-10 minutes).

The Shop Revisited
1. Head into the shop to your trapped zombie friend and load your gun with your four bullets.
2. Deal him quick justice (+5 zombies) and grab Jeremy's glasses.
3. Head outside the shop and hand Jeremy his glasses. Now you have his willing support (+1 friend).
4. Make the final visit to the church (-20 mins).

The Church Revisited
1. Using the trolley from the shop, fill it up with the bag of cement and the pile of bricks. Now you can barricade your base's windows!
2. Head inside the church, to find a lonely, depressed man on the left. Remedy this with your photo from the shops. Now Father Bernard has joined your ranks (+1 friend).
3. Now with all support and supplies collected, time has come to defend your base. Head "home" (-10 mins).

The Base Revisited
1. Before starting any preparations, enslave our old accomplice Bill using the painkillers you grabbed from the shop. Do not hand him anything else for now.
2. Head out to the gate, and repair it by joining it up with the reel of metal from the shops. With help from your three friends, it should take 1 hour and 45 minutes (-1 hour and 45 minutes). Now you have your first line of defense (-15 zombies)!
3. Improve this by powering the generator with the fuel canister you collected from the police car at the crash site. Then, turn on and connect the generator to the fence with the pair of wires from the dumpster to electrify the fence (-5 zombies)!
4. Heading out to the front yard of the house, dig a pit trap with the shovel from the base for the zombies. With the help of your three friends, it will take 1 hour and 30 minutes (-1 hour and 30 mins). Now you have your second line of defense (-15 zombies)!
5. Head inside the house, and lock the door with the keys from the dumpster. Now you have your primary third line of defense (-10 zombies)!
6. Head into the room with Bill and add both the bottle of water from the gas station and the bag of cement from the church into the sand bucket.
7. Mix this to create mortar, and use the bricks form the church on the window, using it and the mortar to barricade it. With the help your your three friends, it will take 45 minutes (-45 minutes). Now you have your secondary third line defense built (-10 zombies). Now you have created all of the defenses, which in all will fend off 55 zombies in all!
8. Fulfil Bill's wish to have the bottle of alcohol, which will leave in intoxicated and unconscious. Now, slaughter him with the axe from the church (otherwise, he will prove his disloyalty during the attack). He was a zombie after all.
9. Head over to the far left of the base, where the locked hatch it located. Put the metal cutter from the base's alleyway to use, removing the stubborn padlock (can also be shot away, but will attract 5 more zombies).
10. Climb inside the hatch, with only Father Bernard, Jeremy, a shovel, a wire cutter, a full fuel canister, an axe, a shopping cart, a gun with three bullets, a pair of wires, and a key.
11. Shut the hatch, and start the attack, having 2 hours and 40 minutes left on the clock, by clicking on the clock in the inventory.

The Attack
The attack should end perfectly, with nobody harmed, and no zombies within the base. If the base were to be breached though, the hatch would fend off 5 zombies, the axe 1 zombie, and 1 zombie per bullet. All three of you will escape unharmed and the game will end.

Rage Zombie Shooter Walkthrough
Killing zombies could not have been more entertaining than this. They will approach you from all directions and will increase in numbers if you don't kill them with the first shot. With 24 levels you can collect a lot of experience points which you can use to increase damage, health, chance to critical hit, shooting speed and movement speed. To win this game, you just have to dodge and avoid getting chase by the zombies. Circle around randomly and bewares of clustering, do not be over zealous to collect the drops. From what I know, Plasma Guns and Plasma Rifle have pretty simple stats, but I prefer using Plasma Guns then Plasma Rifle. Plasma Guns seems to shoot more bullets than Plasma Rifle, that's how I feel, but you still can win with Plasma Rifle. Definitely no problem!

Pirates vs Undead Game Review & Walkthrough Guide

Pirates vs Undead
Pirates vs Undead Logo

Play Online: Pirates vs Undead
Developer: Deqaf Studio
Genre: Action, Defense

Game Review
Pirates found a treasure map! Dangerous, scary island inhabited by strange creatures - Frankenstein, skeleton, a grandmother with a hatchet, a malicious clown, and many others! Break through hordes of undead to find the treasure! Basically, Pirates vs Undead is a row defense type of flash game. The game uses a lane-system where only certain enemies can walk on. You need to deploy your pirates on the same lane as enemy's. The objective is to survive 15 stages from the wave of undead and monsters. There are multiple rows in which the enemies will be coming from. You need to put a pirate or two in those lanes to fend off the invading enemies. You start off with 100 HP in every stage and there are a specific number of enemies that you need to fight per stage. Your goal is to make sure that your HP doesn’t drop to 0. If you fail to defend, you need to start the stage all over again.

You can choose from a plethora of pirates that you can unlock for a fee. The payment will come in the form of coins that you get depending on how well you did on a previous stage. Make sure to unlock all the pirates so that you can have diversity in your ranks. In order to use a pirate in a stage, they require some money to use. You can get money once you defeat every enemy you encounter. Your money will also rise every second that passes by, sending out each pirate has a different cost. The more expensive ones usually have stronger attacks and have sturdier builds. The enemies themselves are no push-overs especially the last 3 stages. The game does get harder as the stages gets farther which is just appropriate, so be prepared! The game is well-balanced and took me an hour or so to complete it. I enjoyed it!

Pirates vs Undead Walkthrough
Most levels were too easy, but the last three were pretty fun and challenging. You've pretty much gotta complete the game with what you got from the start to the end, meeting harder and harder enemies with the same weak characters. It doesn't matter if your pirates reach the end, you're not taking health from the other side. You have to kill the enemies to get the opposite side to zero. The proper tactic on how to win this game is best to have 1 or 2 ranged troops (depending on how good the opponent is) and 1 melee to tank the fight. If your tanker dies, replace him otherwise your ranged troops will die. Mostly because, ranged units can dish out tons of damage as long they dont get close to enemies. Otherwise, you are wasting your hard earned gold summoning all those pirates and then lose 10 health which is not worth it. During battle, try to spam your bottle as much as possible on harder enemies and boss. Bombs on clusters to make use of the AOE.

Break the Limits! Game Review

Break the Limits!
Break the Limits Logo

Play Online: Break the Limits!
Developer: Storm Alligator
Genre: Adventure

Game Review
You are trapped in a room and the only thing you can do is think. But what will you think about? Storm Alligator brings us Break the Limits! which is a short clicker game made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 31, theme on Entire Game on One Screen. In the beginning of this experimental incremental game all you can do is think, which is done by clicking, and which nets you thoughts. As you gather more thoughts, you can open up to more possibilities and a whole range of human emotions by spending these thoughts to gain memories, or find loneliness and many other ideas and feelings. A weird game, somehow sucks you in and makes you want to finish it like a hypnotising thing... Some of the noises were pretty alarming and creepy during the anger phase, and the feeling of building excitement and increasing happiness toward the end was palpable.

Normally I would feel wrong for loving a game like this, but he thought of controlling your own dreams is an amazing concept for a game. Everything is so charming and quirky! The mechanics work well to make it feel like I was progressing at my own pace. Break the Limits! isn't really an idle incremental game. Where most idle games take days of just being left up on your screen, this one can be finished in 10 minutes, give or take a few. I'm gonna say that this was about a person trying to wake someone else up from a coma. The person in green is someone talking beside the main character who is stuck inside his own head. The green person says "You squeezed my hand" at one point surprisingly and the ending line is "I can't believe it" implying the person in the coma woke up.

With a minimum artistic resources this game creates very powerful aesthetic effect. I think the idea - of a incremental idle game centred around managing personal thoughts and emotions deserves further elaboration in a bigger game. For what it is though, this game rightfully deserves praise and attention. I highly recommend playing it once!

Hacker's Escape Game Review & Walkthrough Guide

Hacker's Escape
Hacker's Escape Logo

Play Online: Hacker's Escape
Developer: Pine Studio
Genre: Adventure, Puzzle

Game Review
Hacker's Escape is, as the title would imply, is an point and click escape game made by Pine Studio. I really enjoyed it. One of the better escape games. There are codes hidden around the room, but you'll find a lot of electronic equipment you'll need to put to good use if you ever want to find your way out. It took me trials and errors to figure out how to get a fingerprint to switch on a computer with a broken screen, which required a bit of logical thinking. I was also a little worried, because everyone complained about the math, but the hexadecimal is actually not too difficult if you just look at the example on the paper and follow that exact same pattern. This one make you think, and everything makes sense. Then, the last puzzle equation was surprisingly simple yet a little daunting at first. Once I figured out how it moved and using the objects I enjoyed it and finished without any help. No random clicks to find abstract objects in this one, you actually have to find objects that must be used together in a realistic way. And the text gives you some idea of what needs to be done with various things. Overall, I will say it is pretty challenging for those who seldom play this type of escape games. Smooth graphics and progression! A must try, it's free for iOS and Android, download the game if you are using a smart phone now.

In drmzzz Game Review & Walkthrough Guide

In drmzzz
In drmzzz Logo

Play Online: In drmzzz
Developer: Bart Bonte
Genre: Puzzle

Game Review
In drmzzz is a point-and-click game created by Bart Bonte for the Nitrome Jam, under the theme "dreams". The game takes place in two areas and was created as a much shorter and simpler online flash game. One in a bedroom, and another in outer space. In drmzzz's gameplay is presented as one continuous flow, without the division of levels. The player uses their mouse to click on different objects, which can affect their behaviour on screen. The mouse cursor's movement can also have an influence on certain objects such as the alarm clock.

The game was easy to live with, it didn't give me frustration and it was simple. Loved the music and simplicity, quickly introducing new 'mechanics' or tasks without telling the player, but remaining simple and not challenging. This game is incredibly and adorably imaginative, a guy who falls asleep and dreams about colourful worms poking themselves out planets, what's not to love? Easily one of my favourite 5-minutes flash game.

In drmzzz Guide
Solutions to In drmzzz
- Click on a humanoid egg-shaped child's eyes to make him fall asleep.
- Click the z's peering out on the far left sides of the screen.
- Then once a small creature identical to the child climbs into the alarm clock, the player must click the alarm clock three times.
- The child temporarily opens its eyes and the player must click its eye to close it again.
- Keep their cursor over the alarm clock to make it rise into the air.
- The scenery will then change to that of space with one asteroid partly seen in the foreground and another in the background. A worm-like creature will pop out of one of the holes in the asteroid and the player is required to click it to make it move to the asteroid in the foreground.
- Once the player clicks the worm-like creature in the foreground, it will pop back up and cause several other identical creatures of different colours to appear in the holes of the asteroid in the background. Click the worm in the background asteroid till they turn yellow like the worms in the foreground.
- Once this is done, the worms will disappear and instead the worm in the foreground will begin to fly in the air. The player can make the worms change directions by a click of the mouse and should direct the creature into the various stars that appear.
- Once all stars are collected, several different coloured stars will appear as well as several other worms along with them. By clicking again, the player should direct all of the worms into the stars that match their colour. It is easier to focus on one worm at a time then all of them at once.
- Upon all stars being collected, the game will end with the child awakening.

How To Be a Gamer: Playing Flash Games

Playing Flash Games
Flash games are interactive media created for online and mobile applications using the Adobe-owned, Macromedia-developed Flash software. Originally developed as an animation program, programmers and artists began using Flash to create interactive games using its proprietary ActionScript code. Flash games range from action/adventure, role-playing, simulations, 2D side-scrollers, and puzzle games, to 3D first-person shooters and massive multiplayer (MMOs). There are tens of thousands of games available across the web, and the applications are boundless for developers. With free online Flash games and even online casino gaming, players are able to enjoy a plethora of unique titles, many with professional production values; solid graphics and sound, engaging storylines and gameplay, simple interfaces, and high replay value. Many of the Flash games are based on popular existing titles as well, and are as addictive as their console, arcade, and PC counterparts.

These days, as more consumers are spending more time online, Flash games are easily accessible online and well integrated on mobile peripherals too. With many of the games being available for free downloads and/or instant play, which do not require any client software to be installed apart from a web browser or browser plug-in. In some cases a game may be free, but charge for extra in-game features. Multiplayer browser games have an additional focus on social interaction, either between several players or on a massive scale. Due to the accessibility of flash games, they are often played in more frequent, shorter sessions compared to traditional computer games.

Don't you just hate it when you find a game that looks so interesting but you can't play it unless you download it first?Since flash games run isolated from hardware in a web browser, they can run on many different operating systems without having to be ported to each platform. Most flash games are less graphically intensive and thus have lower system requirements because they are designed to be played on a wider range of systems and devices. There are thousands of flash games available today; many are completely new and waiting to be played, while others are classic games re-made as browser games; Pac-Man is an example of a classic game and now available as a browser game.

Flash games are worth playing and exploring for those gamers interested in shorter and satisfying gameplay. You will be surprised by how much these games can offer once you tried it; one example is Candy Crush. You can play it on Facebook running Flash software and it is a success with 100 million players now. There are more on the list which I will skip... The list is almost endless. Trust me, you won't regret trying out a few flash games!

Building Burger
Tabasco -> Chili -> Salad -> Patty -> Pepper Shaker -> Ketchup -> Cheese -> Mayo -> Tomato -> Cucumber -> Mushrooms -> Mustard -> Onion -> Pepper -> Wasabi

Mad Burger 3 Walkthrough
The best in Mad Burger 3 is you get to build a better burger, yet the worst is actually building the burger itself. Here is the burger cooking order: Tobasco, Chilli, Lettuce, Meat Patty, Pepper, Ketchup, Cheese, Mayonaise, Tomato, Gherkins, Mushrooms, Mustard, Onions, Red Peppers and Wasabi. When you're making the burger, place it close to the middle and wait and line it up with the line on the saloon doors. You'll get around 90% every drop when you get used to it. Also, pay close attention to where the "center" of the bottles are when you pour. If you mess up, press the refresh button in the top left to redo without fully making the burger. I also discover during mid-game. The best way to make money is to ride the bottom of the screen (not bouncing, hovering with short bursts of sauce) and mow people down. You get $30 per hit.

Pro-Tip: Want to make the perfect burger? No movement, no problem. Right click and then double click where you think the middle should be.
