I like it.

Agreed. Got annoyed at a few levels where I had 99.8% coverage and couldn't see where I was missing anything. It was clearly due to a barely-missed sliver along a block, but I can't actually *see* that. If the game would highlight missing areas it would be a bit easier to get that up to 100%.

enDice:
There are a few posts about this game on page 5 of the thread. I'm back playing it again a year and a half later, and I still think it's a really cool puzzle game. I finally solved 35, which I was stuck on, and 36, but now I'm stuck on 37. Anyways, you all should check it out! and not just because I really hope someone will get past 37 and give me a hint.

Edit: Beat the game. Cheated slightly on 37/39.

Edit 2: The game I linked is actually "enDice complete", the sequel. The original is enDice, which is ridiculously easy by comparison. (So many wasted moves puzzles! Wasting moves is easy.)

Does a tabletop RPG released solely through the internet count? Because if so, then I would like to present Legend.

Coins.

This simple puzzle game has me scratching my head. The interface is well done also, although an undo move button would be really nice.

Should be called either "Mini Cheddars", or "Digestives" I reckon.

Ok, I would like everyone's attention for a while as I explain the safety instructions.

This is seriously funny.

It was sweet, until i struggled my way through nightmare mode (drunk to boot!) to arrive at the part where you need to type a question mark, which doesn't work with my keyboard since the game recognizes it as a button for changing the volume >:/

Sweet game. 416, while pretty zonked out on ketamine. Edit: 386 for challenge mode.

For more space-bar goodness: http://armorgames.com/play/12962/burrito-bison-revenge. Not as catchy music, though.

Nomic. It's the game about changing the rules of the game. We have an interesting Nomic game going on right here in forum games section. There are many little games within the game. Check it out. The link is in my sig.

I have long been a fan of iSketch. I just discovered drawception. Describe the previous drawing. The next person draws what you described. It's like that game Chinese Whispers (also called The Telephone Game), but with drawings.

I used to play that game IRL hours on end with friends of mine. We had whole books full, which we'd sometimes read back and laugh about. I just nostalgia'd all over the place!
I don't like drawing with my mouse though, but the idea is very cool! I think the game really can be a lot of fun, just not for me. Definitely can recommend this if you don't mind drawing with a mouse, or have a drawing tab or something similar.

Well, I've subscribed to this blog, which has been inundating me with Ludum Dare entries for the past couple days, so here's my recs so far:

Memento XII--Point-and-click adventure, a couple obscure items but the hints and a little classic "try every option on everything" strategy got me through it without too much trouble. Quite polished, story/characters are simple but quite good.

Pretentious Game--May or may not be a mockery of "arty" games. I might lean "no", actually-- the love-story narrative, while getting a bit cliched, isn't quite over-the-top enough for that. But it's clever, and it's a platformery game I got through without ragequitting, which is an honor very, very few platformers can claim.

Controlling--There was one level I gave up on, but anyone with a bit more tolerance for platformers might fare better. ...Oh wait. Level-skip feature. You miss the transition text but at least I can see the last two levels now. :D It was playing with the gameplay-delivers-the-message conceit--YMMV as to how well it's conveyed, but it has the same "discover the mechanics as you go along" idea that I liked about 'Pretentious Game'.

Scape--A small puzzle game, a little simpler once you've got the rules as to which tiles you can re/traverse figured out. But sometimes it's quite nice to have a finishable, bite-size, just-challenging-enough set of puzzles, rather than banging your head against one for hours.

Still digging through them, though. Couple other games that have been floating around:

I've heard good things about A Super Mario Summary, but I have not tried it, because it is a puzzle-platformer, and I value my sanity.

Rambo: Last Blood is kind of a joke game, but imo it's a pretty good joke. Think it would be better going in unspoiled, though.

Parameters-- it's a grindfest. Click on things, grind for cash/stats, defeat boxes by clicking them. That's really about it, and yet it's kind of... fun? compelling? food for the neurotic/compulsive? If you've ever tried to fill in an entire sheet of paper with solid pen marks, this might be the game for you. A few hints here.

...So there's my contribution for now, I guess. XD

Yeah, I use that blog too. Thanks for the pointers on which games to try out - I haven't been on in a while, so it's nice to have a filter. I loved Drill Killer, FOX ALIENS FROM SPACE INVADE A PLANET WITHIN SPACE and Game Title. First two are just stupid little funquests, but Game Title is a solid adventure game with a lot of interesting features. A Brief History of Cambodia is probably my favourite of the artsy games they've put up.

The prequel (Fixation) is pretty good. I wish it had an awesomely unique mechanic like the original, but the much-expanded dialogue, philosophy, etc made up for it. The dialogue got annoying as hell to skip every time an effing laser killed you, though.

It also gave me a headache when the speech bubbles jumped around with the characters. Still it was a fun game, and interesting story.

Slighly off topic... I can't play Reset Generation in the link given, and can't find it anywhere. It seems that since Nokia discontinued the n-gage platform, it is doomed to be lost forever. This is really depressing... specially considering that it is a java applet.

The best part about CLOP was raging at the damn farmer! I can only imagine what the ending is like.

Jahooma's LogicBox seems like it might be really easy for experienced programers but I am totally stuck on level 8 right now. But it's a fun kind of stuck. No hints yet, I'm going to keep chewing on it.

Hah, just solved 8 in 2 minutes with a fresh look.

I'm so stuck on Level 6. I just don't see how you can do it. At the moment I have a loop that checks if the current string is either 1 char or has a duplicate in it, but that's as far as I've gotten. I'm a professional software engineer, godamnit! This is going to plague me, I can feel it.

Edit: As with all good coding problems, I solved it by doing other stuff. Now I've figured it out, but 8 is indeed a toughie.
Spoiler:
But not that tough once you figure out how to implement a search. Doh!
