Weekly Time Waster – ‘Gravity Balls’
There are few things that are better suited for my time-wasting pleasure than games that ask me to accomplish simple goals in complicated ways. The best of these tend to involve tricky physics and Rube Goldberg-ian paths and patterns; basically, the less straightforward the path, the more I enjoy following it.

Weekly Time Waster - 'Continuity'
As has been long established, when it comes to timewasting, I tend to favor low-commitment puzzle games. I’m a fan of noodling around with goofy game physics or pattern recognition for a few minutes rather than committing some large chunk of time to a more involved game.
