Vampire Tower

I don't know why, but the next interesting game I encountered during this Christmas/New Year holidays is another Halloween-themed game.  Haha.  =P

Vampire Tower!  =)
The instructions are fairly simple.

Basically, you play a... I guess he's a vampire-slayer, who scales up the wall of this vampire tower.

Along the way, there are enemies that block your way, push you off the wall, throw things at you, etc.  So you'll have to jump from one side to the other in order to avoid them.  There are also other obstacles on the walls such as gargoyles and you have to avoid them too or else fall to your death!  =P

Now, there are items hanging in the gap that you can grab as you jump from wall to wall.  Collect three identical items in a row for some power-ups.

You can choose Play Arcade (Normal Mode) where you have 10 difficulty levels to beat starting off with enemies and obstacles that are few and far between, then gradually increasing.  Or you can choose Play Insane (Insane Mode) which is difficult right from the start with enemies and obstacles very close together.

I like this game and recommend it!  =)  Music and sounds are nice too.  If you'd like to try it, just click here.  Maybe you'd like it too.  =)  Enjoy!

Memento Monster

Playing games is a favorite pastime of many, including myself.  So one day when I was feeling lazy... er, I mean, when it was time for a break, I looked for a game to play online and found this...

Memento Monster.  =)
I know, I know.  It's Christmastime now and this is more Halloween-themed. But well, it was the one that caught my attention.  =P

It's the memory type of game where you flip cards and look for the matching pair.  The difference with this game is that you're not just looking for identical pairs of cards.  Instead, you have monster cards and their corresponding weapon cards.  So, in addition to the usual challenge of remembering where the cards are in the grid and finding all the pairs in the allotted time, you have to figure out first which weapon goes with which monster.  Some examples are: the shotgun for the zombie, the garlic for the vampire, the mousetrap for the monster rat, and so forth.

When you finally run out of time and the game ends, the level of achievement you reach will depend on how high your score is.  (And as you can see below, I'm only halfway through unlocking all the achievements.  =P )

At this point, there is a "Retry Last Level" button so you can resume from the previous level again, try to win it, and continue improving your score.

The graphics are nice.  The music and sounds are just right.  And even though I haven't finished it yet, I'm happy to recommend it to others.  =)  I like this game!  So much so that I thought of not only writing about it, but starting this blog because of it.  Haha.  =P

One downside to this game, though, is that when you close your game window and decide to come back to it again sometime later, you'll have to start again from the beginning.  I see no feature allowing you to save your game, or choose a particular level, so that you can just continue improving your score from where you left off the last time.  In any case, still a good game!  I recommend it.  =)

If you wish to try it out this game, just follow this link.
