Those with a fear of flying can take solace in the fact that they can still enjoy a whole world of aerial acrobatics and fun with the huge selection of flying games out there on the internet. There are so many flying and aerial games out there that there is pretty much a genre for every niche of aerial transport you can think of. Whether it’s bringing aerial terror to the Jerrys in Battle of Britain: 303 Squadron or shredding up the skies with Indesctructo Chopper, pretty much every base of the flying world is covered. One of the games that is notable due to its blistering pace and generally relentless nature is Sky Chopper.
Without the proper training or getting involved in a serious accident that requires an aerial ambulance, it isn’t likely that a great deal of us average people will ever experience a thrilling helicopter ride. Even those with the appropriate qualifications won’t quite get the highly explosive and event-filled experience that flash game Helicops Territories offers, since this game is a thrill-a-minute experience with significant amounts of shooting and a challenging element of real-time strategy woven in through the middle of it. This game has come a long way from the comparatively immature Helicops both in terms of gameplay and graphics, and now there’s more territory-based strategy involved than ever before.
Fans of the Roman way of doing things and people that generally enjoy a good one-on-one duel may very well benefit from taking a look at Swords and Sandals 2, a turn-based battle game that concerns itself with simulating gladiatorial battles in a stadium packed with thousands of blood-hungry spectators. This is a game that gives you the opportunity to follow a would-be slave on his upward journey into gladiator stardom. Beginning as a prisoner, you are given the opportunity to fight your way to freedom, and fight you shall. Purchase weapons, armour, potions, and magic spells to add to your arsenal and fight each battle to gain experience points in order to strengthen your attributes in true RPG style. It’s not a question of whether you can become the best gladiator in history, it’s just a question of how long it takes you, so grab a rusty knife and get your foot on the ladder of skirmish success in Swords and Sandals 2.
As a genre, tower defense is quite overpopulated. Sadly, it isn’t full of high-quality, well-designed, or perfectly-executed titles, but rather an abundance of mediocrity, run-of-the-mill, and on the most part, slightly below average. For those that aren’t familiar with the genre, this can be quite off-putting since these kinds of title can give newcomers a bad impression of a genre that can actually be very entertaining if done correctly. Kingdom Rush is an example of everything that is good about the genre, and also of brilliant design, engrossing gameplay, and a well-rounded package that makes most other games look as if they were made by amateurs.
