is a software company that makes neat-o
free games that can be played using Internet Explorer
or Netscape Navigator
. They have pretty nice 3D graphics
and are free (did I say that twice).
They name a number of games including:
- a PacMan
rip off starring a pig
- alla Asteroids
- sort of Columns
- golf simulator
I just downloaded an araknoid
clone , a boxing simulator called Totally Live Boxing
, and a road racing game...
Let you know how they go in a cuple of hours.
They also make screen savers
and some visual plug-in
s for Sonique
, but I'm all about their compact (1.7-3.5MB) games, which come for free, but have banner ads
