Simple Games, Great Music

xxxxx

TimRay just pointed out this site, which has dozens of simple flash games to play with some impressive style and great music. Check them out if you’re bored and let us know which are your favorites so everyone knows which to try out!

Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister may have famously sung that the only card he needed was the Ace of Spades but, according to numerous sources, the legendary Motorhead frontman’s favorite games were slot machines. The iconic gambling song was an obvious reference to blackjack, in which the ace of spades used to be the most valuable card. But the late singer and bassist was best known for playing one-armed bandits in London clubs.

If you break down gambling and heavy metal to the pure emotions that people feel when they are enjoying them, there isn’t much difference between the two. Both are high-octane pursuits which get the adrenaline pumping and provide unparalleled thrills. That’s why this particular genre of music and casinos have always gone hand in hand. Heavy metal musicians have been known to have an affinity to gambling as well, with Motorhead famously singing about the “Ace of Spades.” This has led developers to celebrate this link by creating games which represent heavy metal in the online casino industry. It has mainly been seen in slot games so far, but there is potential for heavy metal representations in casino to spread further.

    Bells by far has always been the most addictive for me.

    I have been going to Orisinal since 2001. He used to upload new games regularly, but hasn’t done it as often recently. “The Amazing Dare Dozen” is far and away my favorite. My college roommate spent 6 hours playing “Pocketful of Stars” with the intent of getting in the top scorers list (he did so successfully, but was pushed out less then a week later!).

    Somehow just by the title I guessed you’d be talking about Orisinal.
    Bunny Bells has always been somewhat of an addiction at my school.

    It’s infuriating, yet fun.

    Man, I’ve been going there off and on since maybe 2003, my favorite one is “Bottom of the Sea”

    Wow, there’s a blast from the past.

    Incidentally, I don’t think Ray is doing his reputation as a hardcore gamer any favours with this 🙂

    Oh, and since you asked, I’ve always liked Panda Run, but then that shouldn’t come as a surprise!

    That’s really cool! Those games are really well made and addictive! I haven’t played a whole lot of them yet, but The Way Home is currently my favorite.
