Weekly Time Waster - 'Crossy Road'

Written by Matt Fern

Ever wonder what the true answer was to the question "Why did the chicken cross the road?" I think the answer might be “To get as far as he can to the other side without being flattened and rack up a super high score.”

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Chicken Scream’

Written by Matt Fern

“Chicken Scream.” The only game I’ve ever found, that makes you shout at delicious poultry.

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Hill Climb Racing 2’

Written by Matt Fern

A few weeks ago, I presented to you the highly addicting game “Hill Climb Racing.” I won’t lie; I played the crap out of it. Then I stumbled upon its sequel in the app store - “Hill Climb Racing 2.” Without hesitation, it was downloaded onto my phone. I unfortunately now know what it is like to waste hours of time playing a sequel to a game that I already wasted copious amounts of time playing.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘There Is No Game’

Written by Matt Fern

I’m sorry folks, but this week, there is no Time Waster. There is not even a game. There is no article to read. So I hope you aren’t still reading. There is nothing interesting here, just some text in a little blue box with a title and a picture.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Sky Burger’

Written by Matt Fern

Ah, summer. How you are so rapidly approaching. You have teased us with your warm temperatures, sunny days and - for people like me - premature sunburns.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Wire Defuser’

Written by Matt Fern

Remember every single action or spy movie that had that scene. You know the one where the main character has to defuse a bomb? The “which wire do I cut” scene. The timer ticks down and through some process of elimination, the red or green wire must be cut. The timer ticks close to zero, a random wire is snipped and the day is saved.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Hill Climb Racing’

Written by Matt Fern

What do you get when you mix physics-based driving, a bouncy four-wheel drive vehicle and large amounts of hills and jumps to drive on at high speeds? It almost sounds like a weekend at an off-roading club, doesn’t it? Or maybe we’re talking about a game called “Hill Climb Racing.”

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Lunar Lander’

Written by Matt Fern

The last two weeks we’ve focused on a few retro games.

The first one - “Frogger” - saw you running across a street full of dangers, risking your life, just to get to the other side.

The second - “Galaga” - saw you blasting away alien invaders, saving the planet and setting high scores to brag to your friends about. 

However, within these themes, what kind of retro game offers you a dose of reality? Well, how about “Lunar Lander!”

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Galaga’

Written by Matt Fern

Space has a special place in my heart. Whether it’s looking up at the stars and wishing I could embark on a real journey to another planet or simply watching Sci-Fi movies or exploring space in the virtual world of a video game … what I wouldn’t give to cruise the cosmos and be a space trucker.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Frogger’

Written by Matt Fern

In the build-up of the new “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie being released, I want to take the next few editions of the Time Waster, to go into a retro game “series.” To start it off, we launch with “Frogger.”
