Good game, good game!

The Manchester Evening News led me to Canyon Glider, an online game at tonight. It was okay, although I haven’t yet managed to finish the course, even at novice level.

The site has some good, if slightly tasteless shoot-em-ups in War on Terrorism One and Two. System requirements: Pentium II or higher, latest Flash plug-in, 128 Mb RAM (256 recommended), fast trigger finger and a keen eye.

But the game I found most addictive is Mission Mars. Like all the best games, it is deceptively simple. I’ve managed to get to level ten so far. Couple of hints: First, if you hit the spacebar repeatedly, just as a laser is hitting, it will set off a chain explosion that will take a building down by several storeys, or at least it does on a Mac. Second, don’t play too long or RSI sets in!

Nobody’s prefect. If you find any spelling mistakes or other errors in this post, please let me know by highlighting the text and pressing Ctrl+Enter.
