Hello, guys. I’m back for more awesome new casual games that you can play for free. Today, I found one good-looking Unity game titled Ninja Slash.
What is the game about?
It’s Temple Run + Ninjas. You play as a ninja, slashing your way across hundreds of zombies. Well, you can’t really slash every single one of them. You need to avoid, jump over or slide under the big ones. Oh, you also have to keep your character from bumping into walls. (Good as you are with the sword, your sword has no power over walls.)
What makes Ninja Slash stand out?
Casual gamers who are used to playing free online games, usually Flash, will find the use of 3D in Ninja Slash a breath of fresh air.
The game was created using Unity3D, a game authoring tool, that has been making noise over the last three years. (I even featured 3 cool Unity games a couple of months ago.)
Most of the Unity3D games I played recently lean more towards hardcore gaming (Contract Wars and Akaneiro). Both are wonderful hardcore games that one can play on your desktop.
Ninja Slash, on the other hand, is for casual gamers. It’s easy to play and you don’t really get too invested on it. Still, it tries to hook some hardcore gamers by providing ample upgrades.
Should you play it?
I’m surprise you’re still reading this. Go play the Ninja now at Kongregate.
Hey guys! Its been a great week for me cause I stumbled upon this game called Happy Hills. This game is fantastic. It has some elements of Angry Birds and its very own type of gameplay. In Happy Hills, you blast blocks in to the air, collecting stars.
Once you complete everything by collecting each and everyone of them, you can access the END icon and beat the game. Collecting all the stars maximizes your point intake. With the power of the Unity, you can see just how gorgeous this game is. I dare say that even Angry Birds cannot compare Happy Hills in terms of graphics.
Its like a sweet desserts kingdom ready to be explored, or destroyed…HaHa!!! If you were a fan of the Angry Birds game, Happy Hills will hook you with its innovation. Super fun and excellent. You cannot deny that when you play this Happy Hills.
I haven’t played a game for such a long time that makes me control a Happy-Go-Lucky dinosaur that loves to frolic around a city destroying nearby objects with his roar and jumps. Its a kiddy game that would surely capture the hearts of casual gamers.
It has simple controls. With the use of the A and D and Arrow Keys you can roar, jump and move around an unfortunate city. Lets start with the graphics. Its a beauty. Unity 3D doesn’t showcase it full power thou, but its still great to look at. The game looks like one of those awesome Saturday cartoons I used to watch when I was a kid. The sounds are top notch. Clear and hilarious.
As for the gameplay, it is quite simple. Do you remember the classic game called rampage? Its quite simple, just wreck havoc across the city. But in here you don’t get to climb buildings, stomp on cars, or gobble on human beings. You just try to destroy as much as you can with your roar. Its fun and simple. Totally addictive. Check it out.
After playing awesome free Unity 3D games like contract wars or Begone, I know that flash days are totally numbered. No way can it compete to the juggernaut. But you might think that I’m just some stupid gamer that thinks graphics will always own gameplay. No. I am not one of those gamers. I’m far from that.
You see, when you give a game more ways to explore new and different dimensions, gameplay will always evolve with it. No matter what. Lets put ti this way. If you give a developer a 2d dimension game engine to work on. And tell him to make a football game. It will just play like the old NBA arcade games we used to play before. Flat dimensions.
No evolution. No evolution in games means death. Plain and simple. And flash sadly hasn’t evolved for quite some time. Come on. Lets face. Stop living in denial. Unity 3D will kill flash. Do I feel happy? Of course. I’m tired of what flash game developers are giving us. I want something new. And this is it.
If there is anything in this world that is evolving fast its games. I remember the time whenever I play a flash game, all I see are pixels and simple 2D cartoon textures. But these days, I still do, however they don’t get as much credit as they did before.
Now we have Unity 3D. And damn am I impressed. Go play Contract Wars! Come one. Do it. You will be impressed. And if the game play wont impress you, it will be on how flash games has totally evolved. There is just no more room for mediocrity in this age of games. And it should be like that. I’m not saying I hate pixels (I love pixel games), but what I want is an end to mediocre games .
No more mediocrity! Maybe soon or after a few years , we might see a flash game that plays like COD (chuckle). We never know. But I assure you it will happen.
About a year ago, while browsing for fun casual browser games, I came across Burn The City at Kongregate. It has smooth graphics and effects, something not that common to flash games. After quick digging, I found out that it’s made by a game engine called Unity3D.
Unity is a software package that developers can use to create 3D games, realtime 3D animations and other interactive content.
How does it affect us casual browser gamers?
Unity3D has a web player, it’s a plugin similar to Adobe’s Flash Player, that you can install on your computer to play browser games deployed using Unity. This plugin currently supports Windows and OS X, supporting Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Netscape, Opera and Camino browsers.
The Unity Web Player enables you to view blazing 3D content created with Unity directly in your browser, and autoupdates as necessary.
Here are 3 awesome browser-based Unity3D games:
Monkey Quest is a free online MMO set in a constantly-evolving world. New quests and events will keep you playing it.
An adventure/platformer game, which I believe is visually-inspired by Tim Burton’s movies.
A young boy in a chicken Halloween costume must find his way of a creepy pyramid where directions and orientation seems can be changed.
