Week in Geek: The Fun Flash Games Edition

By Lowell Heddings on October 17th, 2009

If you’ve been a subscriber for more than a couple of days, you know that we love some good Friday Fun around here. You’ve probably also noticed that we sometimes post the games here on HTG, but we’ve never officially “launched” the section—until now.

So, this is the official notice that we’ve already launched the How-To Geek Arcade, available behind the Games link on the main menu. We’ll be adding more and more games to this section, and potentially give you a more in-depth look at certain games during our Friday Fun series.


Just to save you the time of actually clicking through, here’s a few of the latest games that we’ve added—and a couple of our favorites, like GemCraft, a truly addicting tower defense game.

Demolition City

Heavy Weapons

Epic War 3

Gravitee 2

Pyro II



Light Bot

Desktop Tower Defense Pro

So keep checking back, we’ve got a ton of games and we’re adding more all the time!

The Geek Note

Yesterday’s daily email went out with the wrong subject line due to a technical error. We assure you that we’ve punished the offending PC by installing iTunes on it.

You also might notice that the HTG home page has changed a bit—we’ve started using really gigantic preview thumbnails for our best feature articles. What can we say, we like screenshots around here!
