Free PC Games

Discussion in 'Gaming and Software' started by skintboymike, Feb 12, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I recently looked back at my last year or so of gaming and realised that about 80% of all videogames played were of the flash/free download variety. This speaks volumes when you consider that I own a Wii, a PS3, a PC and a DS, including several Triple-A titles on each format. It's easy to see why - many free downloadable games are truly top quality. Fantasticcontraption is the one that still takes up most of my time, but there are many others worthy of note.

    Anyway, I thought I'd start this thread so that ARRSEers could list some the other free downloadable games which they think are worthy of a wider audience. I've listed a few to start us off (some new, some not so new)

    Spin The Black Circle - turn a large wheel left or right to guide a little ball to its goal. Good while it lasts, but bloody hell it's hard.

    Fantastic Contraption - A physics-based engineering game in which an object must be moved to a goal area using wheels and rods. Life threateningly addictive.

    Splitter - Similar in objective to Fantastic Contraption, although this time the aim is to slash objects apart with a knife instead of building things. Short but good.

    Crayon Physics Deluxe - A charming little game which sees your crude crayon drawings instantly come to life and take on physical properties in order to propel a ball into a goal. (Bit of a theme developing here, but trust me, it's different enough to warrant a look.

    Closure - A rather creepy black and white puzzler/platformer, which sees you transporting orbs of light around a pitch black level to try and find doors to open. If you can't see the door/floor, it doesn't exist.

    The Way Of The Ninja - Getting on a bit now, but still good fun. Basically a little ninja runs and jumps around a huge playing field filled with obstacles such as mines, attack droids and heat-seeking misssiles. After a particularly heated session on this I actually drew blood by biting my knuckle in a barely-suppressed raged. In fact don't play this. It'll only piss you off.

    Line Rider - A simple game in which you draw a line on a screen, then press play to watch a little man on a sled go down your line. Although this is getting on a bit as well now, some of the videos on Youtube of this game are amazing, as well as being a fantastic insight into those people with even less of a life than us.

    Please remember to add a link to the games when posting.
  2. Combat Arms and fantastic contraption when I'm not Arrsing
  3. Does anyone have the name or the link to that game where you have to create a virus/bacteria in order to wipe out the human race? It was featured on ARRSE a while back, but I'm buggered if I can find it.

    Pandemic 2 is great!

    I cant ever seem to infect Madagascar though. They've only got a port, and always close it too quickly :(
  8. Yep since before xmas.
  9. The Last Stand 2 on 666 games is a good one if you like zombie shooters. Lots of other blood and gore games on that site too.
  10. That combat arms is pretty good,reccomend it and even a fcuking amistrad 2000 could play it.

    Plenty of good ones here:

    I can definitely recommend 'motherload' which involves building a spaceship/mining machine and digging for treasure.
  12. Spin the black circle's brilliant!
