No more ads in Opera?

30 Aug05

All the stuff I make, be it Flash or CSS, I always test it using IE, FireFox and Opera. Opera is by far the most standards-capable browser out there, but I’ve chosen FireFox for my daily browsing. As part of the 10-year online anniversary party, Opera Software is giving away licenses, but only today so hurry! Just visit this URL and register your Opera browser today and you’ll never see an ad again…

Playstation Flipper by Kerb

28 Aug05

Kerb is among my favorite makers of Flash games. Often politically incorrect and always entertaining. Here’s one of their new games: Playstation Pinball. Cool use of “physics” in Flash. They did a game for a computer manufacturer some time ago, but that one had only 5 levels. This one seems longer and some of the levels can have you pondering quite some time…

TeaGames - Physical Flash games

27 Aug05

Physics in games is an interesting topic. There’s no such thing as physics in a computer, so it’s up to the programmer to make things look good/believable. Here’s a site with a bunch of physics-based games: http://www.teagames.com/

The phyics here are often far from “correct”, but most of the games are well done.

Guitar Shred Show - air guitar brilliance!

27 Aug05

Not quite a Flash-game, but totally brilliant! I’m really not a metal fan at all, but this is fun! From starting out as a slightly strange “learn to play guitar”-thing, then converting to a “story mode” ending up in a really cool showdown. The use and integration of sound here is really brilliant, possibly the best I’ve ever heard.

About this blog

27 Aug05

Might as well blog? I’ve been so busy with my pet project http://www.flashmagazine.com that I never took the time to start my own blog. Flashmag is now in it’s fifth year, has several great contributors and this month there will be more than 100.000 unique readers (400.000 pageviews++). Not too bad for a hobby, but since I try my best to keep Flashmagazine a professional publication, it’s loads of things I’d like to blog about that just doesn’t fit it’s format.

Flashgamer won’t be a blog about me, but rather about some of my hobbies. I’ll post cool Flash Games that I find, personal opinions and small reviews on various games I play and maybe some Flash code snippets / rants. We’ll see. Maybe I’ll even update this standard template? :)

This site (Flashgamer.com) used to be a showcase site for Flash Games I made. I put it up in August 1999, but by early 2003 the amount of visitors was massive. Funny how popular Free games are… Since I had little or no time to update it, the content was rather dated. To avoid bandwidth bills and fuzz, I put the site to rest.
