Flashbang Studios Release Time Donkey

September 2, 2009 12:55 AM | Michael Rose

Flashbang's ninth game has now been released! Time Donkey is available to play over at

In a very peculiar nutshell, the hero donkey has a bit of a problem - he is stuck re-living the same 30 seconds over and over again. Cue a barrage of donkeys and much puzzle solving by use of donkeys from your past! Or should that be donkeys from your own time? Surely this makes no sense whatsoever, but when it features donkeys who destroys things in search of tacos, sense is few and far between.

Is this Flashbang's most mental game yet? Give it a go and decide for yourself.

Browser Game Pick: Vox Populi, Vox Dei (Weremsoft)

September 1, 2009 4:32 PM | Michael Rose


Vox Populi, Vox Dei sees a troubled hero on his quest to save the girl who had previously hurt him. The werewolves have taken her prisoners, so now it's time to rip them apart limb from limb and get her back.

It's a real oddity, this one. Lack of music is a start, but it's the sheer brutality behind your attacks that are the real eye-opener. While the werewolves are the evil-looking characters, the damage they deal out is nothing compared to what your little guy can muster up. The pixelated blood and savage pouncing make this slightly NSFW, but by God do they make you feel powerful. Hammering the space bar to completely destroy enemies has never felt so good.

Give it a thrashing over at Kongregate.
