I'm eating leftovers again and decide, after crunching numbers and listening to myself on tape off and on all morning, I need a palette cleanser for my brain. I head on over to BigFish Games. There's a lot of fun stuff on their web site for very reasonable prices. If you buy enough, you can get games free. Great time wasters, I mean...no, time wasters although I do feel challenged when it's a time management game and I can't beat the level.
They have daily games that are free. Sometimes, these are truncated versions of full-size games and it gives you a chance to try out something before you buy it. Sometimes, they are stand-alone games with no purchase available. The one I'm playing now is the latter. If you ever wanted to be a demolition "expert" or if you just wanted to blow things up, this is the game for you.
You can see, below, I'm up to level 10 here. You get a certain number of dynamite bundles that you have to use to take down the building and make sure it collapses below the yellow line. On some levels, there will be a red bar to the right indicating another building. You can't have any piece of the demolished building touch the red one or you have to try again.
I did it. Yeah, it's a time waster, but I have 4 minutes left on my lunch hour and there's something very satisfying about blowing something up.
It's www.bigfishgames.com. They are PC AND MAC friendly.
