The controls are a little skittish, but I like the faux-retro look to the game.

I guess it's a bit too arty for my liking...
I can't say I enjoyed this, but people that are into puzzle adventures and fantasy might.

No, not usually; your post was the last post in the thread, so not even an edit log would show up if you edited. Why not do that?

If people are keeping track of this thread, I'm sure they'll notice a new game you've added when they check later on for other games.

This is a decent TBS game. Actually, I was quite surprised with it's quality.

I just figured that nobody reacted to the other (lame) game, and since I rarely check a thread "to see if the last poster edited theirs", I decided to double post.
But, I apologize: it's against the rules. Sorry.

I'm not trying to stab you in the face, Raven... but this thread gets updated often enough that people would be reading a "new post" soon enough after your edit, so it would still be plenty noticeable. If need be, you could refer to the game in a later post because nobody had mentioned it.

Aaaand here's another game:

Mud and Blood 2

This one sees you in the command of a small group of soldiers holding a random position during WW2.
You may advance, dig in or buy enough flamers to set the world on fire. The choice is yours.

Basically risk online with lots of other maps as well. I just started getting into it again after a year, and thought I'd post it again.

It's an online flash adaptation of the Advance Wars series; urbansquall apparently took two years to create this. Very polished, art is fantastic, and not having played AW I can't comment, but I quite like this. A bit laggy, but my comp is old. Gameplay is very nice.

That is pretty cool, I'll definitely be playing that game more often. Though I must say the gameplay is quite slow.

I remember this, I tried it once in the past. I believe someone made a map for it based on an xkcd comic... I'll edit it in here once I find it.

EDIT: This thread. Uses a different site, though.

Pretty cool programming-based game where you give a robot orders to have it light up squares on a grid - Every so often you'll have to call functions, etc - decent little time waster.

You get to a certain point and the AI just stops spending money and sending stuff at you. Kinda sucks. Would be a really good game without that flaw.

Ninja'd. Well, partially: I play'd it and really liked it, so I though I'd post it here, but decided against it because I was browsing the internets for games, and not fora-ing at that moment. So... Half ninja'd,
Anyway, the graphics are really good, and I like the turn-based aspect of it. *Thumbs up*

Must have been a bug. Played the last level again and it kept on swinging to the very end. Good game, though I wish it was on a hex grid.

its free and made by the guy that did X-plane. its called space combat

Have you any more of these? I love these games, just good for relaxing.

Also: missionred.com, reflex_2 game, is very good for cs aim training. I can't get much past 7 or 8, but my better shooter friends can get to 9-10. Not sure how many levels there are, it was too long ago.

Here are some
Tactical Assassin, Tactical Assassin 2, Clear Vision, Clear Vision 3, Stinger Sniper, Urban Sniper, Urban Sniper 2 and Sniper Assassin.
The last is worst gameplay, Clear Vision 3 the best.

This game is fun. It seems like no matter how the shape turns out, it's aesthetically pleasing.

Ten bonus points to the first person who figures out if it's NP-complete!

Yeah. I'd like to see what the level generator's like; the levels do seem to be randomly generated.

After playing a lot of it, I doubt that it's NP-complete. If I have two loose ends and everything else fits together, I can usually slowly force them towards each other.

"Slowly" being polynomial time.

Nice. Best score so far is 575, with 146 runs. It's certainly addictive.

They should either slow down the rate of bowling, or check if there's a ball on screen before bowling again. I keep losing because one ball stops out of reach, then gets bumped by another ball, so I have one ball rolling along the ground and one in the air at the same time. :x

But, nevertheless, it's fun.
