BEWARE: Highly Addictive Games

I'm not very much for playing computer games or games online. There are however a few games that turn me into a  compulsively competitive addict, that tries to not only beat my boyfriend's high score, but my own.

Some of these games are for an iPhone, so if you have one: Great! If you don't: Make the person you know has one downloa the game! I hope you will like these games as much as I do.

1. Cut The Rope:

A game with incredibly cute graphics, where a green, big-eyed, big-tongued monster wants candy and it is your job to feed him! Through attaching the candy to swinging ropes, dropping it into bubbles or using other props which have been placed on the screen, your goal is to make the candy drop into the waiting monster's mouth.

The facial expressions of the little monster might just be the best part of the game. It gets sad if you don't feed it candy so you have to try your hardest or you will have to stare at it's sad "puppy dog eyes". 

2. Kycklingstuds

Tiger is having a birthday party but unfortunately he lives on the other side of an island and needs your help in order to get as man of his little chick friends over to his side so that they can all celebrate his birthday. To do this you have the help of a turtle's back, as you have to bounce the little chicks on it's back a number of times, until they safely bounce onto the other side of the island. Drop three chicks and the game is over! Does it sound easy? Well, wait until the chicks start coming faster and faster and you will see that it is not only a bit of a challenge but highly addictive. 

You can find the game Here.

3. Flowerz

While there is an online version of this game, me and Karl prefer the iPhone version. The graphics are better and overall it just feels more pleasant to play this version. There is a free version you can download for your iPhone which allows you to play 12 levels until it goes back to level one. Me and Karl have turned it into an artform when it comes to playing this game and trying to get as high of a score as possible, in the possible 12 levels. We need to upgrade to the full version, as we spend every lunch at work playing it. It only costs a couple of dollars as far as I know, so it's not expensive; we just never got around to upgrading it.

The concept of the game is to place flowers of the same colour in rows consisting of three or more. When you do this they disappear leaving either an empty space or a new flower in the colour of the inner colour of the flower.

You can find the online (slightly different) version Here.

 4. Paper Glider

Possibly the least exciting game of the ones mentioned here, but still highly addictive. The game is only available for iPhones and the task at hand is that you need to drag and release a paper plane in such a manner that it doesn't hit any of the office ceiling fans, goes out through the window, and it is then your job to keep it going for as long as possible. 

Which ones are your favourite games? Do you have a similar kind of addictive game that you play? By all means, do share as I am happy to learn of new addictive games!
