A couple of days ago, when I wrote I wrote about the flash game-a-thon that turned #1GF! into a competitive maniac, I was so burned out from playing so many games that I completely forgot to link to the some of the good ones. Since I’ll be off tomorrow, and this post is surely going to burn #1GF!’s muffin, I leave you the results of the first annual Flash Game Big Battle. If you beat the scores, you put them in the comments.
Bounceout: This is a the simplest, and one of the oldest, “match 3″ games that #1GF! has been solidly beating me at for years. It made a comeback for this competition.
Result: #1GF!: Way, way, more than 10,566, Me: 10,566
Super Collapse!: This is one of the granddaddies of “match 3″ games, at which #1GF! usually mauls me. This time, the tables were turned. I think the only thing better than the nerve wracking ticking, is the explosion sounds.
Result: Me: 224,000, #1GF!: Lower than 224,000
Panic Box: All you have to do is use your mouse to keep the little black square in the big blue square while the game distracts you. This game makes me mad, and makes #1GF! into a competitive fireball.
Result: #1GF!: 50, Me: 34
Fast Food: You are this crazy looking rabbit that has to make fast food orders. You have to pour soda, cheese, salsa, and chocolate on the appropriate food items as they roll by on the counter. This started off really easy, but ended up causing a lot of laughs and frustration as the orders got harder. I’d have to say that this ended up being a favorite of the competition.
Results: Me: 1660, #1GF!: 910)
Papa’s Pizza: You’re the pizza maker at Papa’s Pizza. Your only job is to make the pizzas as the orders come in. The faster you make them, the longer you stay in business. It’s simple, but I love listening to the guy grumble out the orders.
Result: Me: 203, #1GF!: less than 203
Jewel Miner: In this “match 3″ puzzle variation, the goal is to make matches that destroy all of the background tiles on the board. Do that before the claim jumpers drill into your mine, and you move on to the next level. #1GF! didn’t really like this one for some reason.
Result: Me: 140735, #1GF!: (lower score not recorded.)
Zulu Gems: This is sort of a combination between Tetris and Bejeweled.
Result: Me: 2500, #1GF!: (lower score not recorded.)
Tropix: This is another variation on the “match 3″ puzzle game. I got to level 2-6 before I was bored shitless and handing the mouse to #1GF!, who had the opposite reaction and played until I made her move on.
Result: An unscored, mind-numbing tie
So, as you can see, the final score was 1 tie, 5 wins for me, and 2 wins for #1GF!, making me the clear video game and PC game champion of the apartment. [Cue fanfare]
