Ask DLS: Cross-platform multiplayer games that work on Android and iOS

Here's one for our knowledgeable commenters: I recently bought my girlfriend an iPad. I, on the other hand, own an Android device. And now we're looking for games we can play using both devices. There's no dearth of multiplayer games either for Android or for iOS. But finding multiplayer games that can cross the platform boundary is an entirely different matter. Jay recently posted Words...

Hedgewars: multiplayer weaponized hedgehog action, now with a Mac port - Time Waster

The first line in the game description of Hedgewars is "each player controls a team of hedgehogs." Ok, where do I sign up? Hedgewars is similar to old-school games like Worms Armageddon or Scorched Earth, in that your weapons can remove chunks of terrain from the playing field, deforming the game board and destroying your opponents. Your hedgehogs take turns moving and attacking with everything...

Wreck your team's afternoon with SNK League Bowling - Time Waster

There's no reason that you should be alone in your Time Waster-ing. If you're feeling social and want to bring your teammates down with you, head over to GetBack's arcade and go for 300 in SNK League Bowling. Yep, it's the classic NeoGeo title done up for your browser. I still remember drooling over ads for the console and thinking that the NeoGeo was probably the best at home arcade system I'd...

Google and Multiverse to announce virtual worlds built on Google Earth

Part of the appeal of virtual worlds like Second Life and World of Warcraft are that they let you escape from the real world. But who's to say there's isn't a market for virtual spaces based on real places? CNet reports that Google and Multiverse Network are set to announce a partnership that will let anyone create a virtual world/MMORPG using data from Google Earth and 3D models created with...

Gaming on Facebook: way more fun than solitaire

Since we're all about the social networking around here, lots of us are signed up with Facebook. No longer content to just write on each other's walls or ask a Question of the Day, a few of us have started playing online games at Facebook with the other people in our networks. Some of us like cerebral games like Scrabulous, a version of the popular Scrabble board game, while others like to kick...

Multiplayer Asteroids - Today's Time Waster

What do you get when you take Asteroids, add a bunch of other players, and, er, take out the asteroids? Multiplayer Asteroids. It's an extremely fast-paced and addicting Flash space shooter that takes its aesthetic cues from the classic arcade rock-blaster and adds a dozen or more players from around the world. The controls will be familiar to Asteroids players: Left and right rotate your ship, up...

Massively Multplayer Pong - Today's Time Waster

Pong is about as simple as games get, but what if 30 people are trying to control the paddle at once? That's the premise of Massively Multiplayer Pong, a Flash game in which you and a few dozen other people play an endless game of pong against a few dozen other people, but with only two paddles and one ball. Though in essence little more than a cute experiment in the wisdom of crowds, Massively...

Time Waster of the Day: Play pictionary online with iSketch

If somebody told me I could play Pictionary online I don't think I'd exactly hoot, "Finally! My prayers are answered!" and when a friend invited me to iSketch it took a bit of cajoling to get me to log on. iSketch is a free multiplayer Shockwave (beware: it can bog down your system a bit) game in which the players take turns drawing a word chosen by the server while the other players try...
