Time Waster - ‘The Rogue Puzzle Game’
This little gem combines strategy and problem solving with a little RPG flair. You are a rogue, delving through dungeons and slaying monsters. You have to kill them all before you can advance to the next level.
And you can just go nuts, attack them with no offensive weapons and watch your health dwindle, or you can line yourself up properly and use a good old fashioned edged weapon. Swords deal one point of damage. You can see how much health you will lose if you attack (1, 2, 3 or more). Spears do the same, but you have two and they will hit monsters diagonal to them.
Time Waster - ‘Building Rush’
Time management games can be thrilling and frustrating. “Building Rush” is no exception. It’s a fun, fast-paced game that places you as the owner of a factory. You have to build a plant, buy trucks and make deliveries to other businesses in the area and watch the area prosper.
The fun really starts to get going when you go beyond simply trying to meet your own goal, but have to actively compete with one or more competitors. Between levels you would be wise to spend your hard-earned profits on upgrades that can improve the movement speed of your trucks, reduce costs, increase profit and increase efficiency in all areas.
