The Greatest Modern Casual Games May 18, 2011

Casual games that have taken over the world:

Angry Birds
It’s a physics simulator, really – and not a particularly accurate one. Draw back your finger to aim a bird in a catapult at a tower of pigs who have stolen their eggs. Didn’t quite get them all? The pigs snuffle and giggle worryingly – you really must try again just to get that last pig. This iPhone game of never-ending pig-bird war has sold more than 12m copies.

Plants vs Zombies
The zombies are coming, and all you have to defend your house with are an array of badass plants, from peashooters to repellent garlic. My best moment? Discussing with a friend’s six-year-old son where to put the magnets and coffee beans to disarm zombies on pogo sticks. Now that’s entertainment.

Words with Friends
“I’m playing Scrabble with someone in America,” said a friend’s mother, “I don’t know if it’s a man or a woman, but they come up with some good words.” Words with Friends isn’t quite Scrabble, of course – some of the tile values are different, but the ability to connect with friends or strangers through the word game is astonishing.

Cut the Rope
Another game which is genuinely “for all ages”, I’ve shown Cut the Rope to five-year-olds and 70-year-olds and been met with enthusiasm all round. The premise is simple: there is a sweet on a rope, and a hungry-mouthed creature waiting at the bottom to eat it. Cut the rope to drop the sweet into its mouth. But avoid the spikes. And the spiders. And remember to use the bubbles. Hours of fun.

The original Goldeneye was a revelation in gaming and I lost countless hours in the attempt to master it’s intricacies. It casts a long shadow over fps gaming.

Well along comes not it’s successor but a revamp and it looks and plays well absolutely superbly.

The BBC Dr Who website is to release four free Dr Who adventure games for free download for the pc. Whilst not cutting edge in the graphics dept it does look kinda cool and certainly fits in with the brand of Dr Who.
