My Favorite Casual Games for Wasting Time

 

WINTERBELLS

 Winterbells (by Orisinal / Ferry Hamln)is an amazing combination of graphics, amazing music, and gameplay.  The short summary is you make the bunny jump and when it touches one of the bells it’s jump is extended. So you keep going up and up. Don’t worry if you miss, the bunny gently floats to the snow unharmed and you start a new game.

ONE BUTTON BOB

One Button Bob (by Armor Games) -  is retro-style game. Think Activision Pitfall! but there’s only one thing you have to do – press the left mouse button. What makes it cool is that the button does different things depending on which “room” you are in. Half the fun is trying to figure out how the button works in each context. Plus it has a rocking soundtrack.

CANABALT

Canabalt  (by Adam Atomic and Danny B). Your character is always running, your job is just to press X to jump. You can time the length of your jumps by holding the key down longer. This game is fun, but regrettably it’s a little too fast paced for me to play it well.
