PixEvo - The Fountain is an incredibly frustrating, pixelated Time-Waster

When PixEvo - The Fountain first begins, you're a tiny, blocky pixel. You can't walk -- you can only skip from place to place, using the up arrow keys and then the left/right arrow while you're airborne.

Here come the shouts of version jumping, ladies and gentlemen: Google has pushed the Chromium browser to version 6.

In "Wait, they really didn't already have that?" news, Google's publishing platform, Blogger, now supports jump breaks in posts. Users have been splitting their posts by hand for a while now, so no one can blame you if you thought it was already a supported feature. Besides, you've seen this before on practically every other blogging platform - heck, I remember LiveJournal having jump breaks 10...

Downhill Snowboard - Time Waster

Downhill Snowboard is a physics game with a human dimension. You play the part of the snowboarder, and your job is to successfully navigate down the hill, while pulling off tricks over the various jumps you encounter along the way. The game is very similar to side-scrolling car-based games that require you to maneuver over jumps and other obstacles, but in this case you do not have an engine, and...
