Another artsy one which also sounds awesome too. Two players work together to try and keep a beat going. The better the timing, the better the beat sounds, the more full the music gets and the faster the sparks fly on screen. While it didn’t exactly keep my attention for a great amount of time, it definitely did wonders to my senses.

A gloriously silly setup – stop the lemmings from falling off the tittering rock by firing cacti at them. It’s simple, it’s ridiculous and it put a smile on my face.

The Global Game Jam Game Jam Game!

Newport, Wales

Both the silliest name AND the silliest game I’ve come across so far. Rush around slapping the Global Jam developers to make sure they don’t fall asleep on the job. It’s an extremely simple game with terrible graphics, but I couldn’t help liking it. They may have possibly appealed to my love for needless violence, who knows.

Head over to part 4 of the ‘Best of’ guide for even more free delights.
