There are a notable number of games out there which conform rigidly to the ‘endless runner’ genre. However, I struggle to think of any which offer the unique incentive of being able to play as a unicorn-shaped automaton that looks, sounds and feels (and this takes a big leap of imagination here) like the genuine article. You may not realise when you first start playing, but you can literally evolve into a number of different creatures as you progress. If this doesn’t persuade you, then I hope by mentioning that one of the final stages allows you to play as a dragon will be a more enticing factor. If this doesn’t convince you, then perhaps the soundtrack of Erasure’s ‘Always’ will.
Too many flash games these days take themselves too seriously. Many are conservative in their use of colour, restricted in their modes of gameplay and parsimonious with what should be the wonderful gift of artistic license. Moreover, there simply aren’t enough games that exist on the internet that feature an automated unicorn running through the depths of hell with musical backing of the heavy metal genre. With a style of gameplay that is about as specific as a flash game can possibly be, ‘Robot Unicorn Attack: Heavy Metal’ puts you in control of a mechanical unicorn with only one mission: To run as fast and as far as possible. A game that is ridiculous in its style of entertainment, and when it comes down to it, is entertainingly ridiculous.
Forget advanced 3D graphics, disregard any anti-aliasing or hardware acceleration, and I want to hear nothing about your 640x480 resolutions; there's a new game in town. Ironically, the only thing 'new' about the game is its relative chronological position in the time-space continuum, since 'Friendship is Magic: Story of the Blanks' is a wondrous journey to the past where games were simple and pixels were sexy. Explore and interact with your surroundings as you guide Applebloom through the seemingly idyllic woodland area and discover the underlying mystery behind the unusual events that take place there. After all, there really is no place like Ponyland.
