Flash games for the Next Gen – BUnow
Flash games aren’t meant to be good. It’s a staple online, much like Youtube’s video of groin photos and cat photos asking the eternal question “Can I haz cheezeburger?” Flash games are a bad ending. Well, don’t tell Kongregate, and most importantly, don’t tell Sonny. Kongregate (www.Kongregate.com) is one of those free “Hey, give us your email” game sites that, for just a valid email account and a motivation to waste your time, will help you to do just that. For the World of Warcraft crowd looking for a diversion, or the novice gamer, this is a great place for a quick lunch break the size of a game dose. It offers basic level-based profile service. which basically serves as a ticker for your “accomplishments” and bragging rights among your friends. Chat is offered simultaneously with all games, making it a community experience lending to the name of the site.
Anyway, what really interests you… Sonny… It’s a supreme waste of time. It’s graphically compelling, creative and most of all fun. Stealing from Final Fantasy’s turn-based attack playstyle, it offers a straightforward leveling scheme, killer story (albeit a bit underdeveloped), quirky voice acting, and a slight nod. eye to Japanese animation. That turns the table on a classic genre (the zombie apocolypse) * and a footnote, yes I just referred to the zombie apocolypse genre as a classic genre * putting you in the shoes of an uber-zombie hunted down by humans, ghosts, and a bunch of other inexplicable villains with plenty of swords and guns. There is a fairly simple purchasing system and the acquisition of items to do (as with any RPG, even flash). There are four playable classes and fully developed talent trees, allowing for character customization and inventory to suit your playstyle. My only major gripe with Sonny is that the only replayable fights are the boss fights in each zone. . Sonny marks a marked improvement in the quality of recent flash games, allowing up to 4 save slots as well as a scalable unit list at your disposal. All in all, Sonny is definitely a glass full of victory.
