December 5, 2010 – Age of War | FREE Friv Games Online

Play Age of War and other free Friv games online at

You can play 250 free Flash games at The Friv site design is extremely simple. There is a matrix of 250 icons on the page, with one icon representing one game. If you mouse over the icon, the name of the game is displayed, as well as the download size if the game is large and requires a download. To play a game, simply click on the icon. Friv periodically changes the game lineup, by dropping the least popular game and replacing it with a new Flash game sourced from the web. So if you have a favorite game on the site, you should play it often to support it so that it doesn’t get dropped.

Today, I am going to introduce the game “Age of War”, which is on the 8th row and 8th column currently. In this game, you are fighting a war with an enemy, and are trying to destroy each other’s bases. Your base has a certain number of hit points, which does not regenerate. You can build fighting units, which costs money. Once built, the fighting units will automatically begin walking in a straight line towards the enemy base, and will begin hacking at or shooting at any enemy units it encounters. If your units have killed all enemy units along the way and have managed to reach the enemy base, it will begin attacking the base and decreasing its hit points. The first side whose base’s hit points decreases to zero loses. You can also build turrets, which are static defenses on your base that cannot move, can only fire at enemy units a short distance from your base, and cannot be attacked. Each unit also has a special attack that can be used either protect itself from attacks, or cause additional damage to enemy units. However, the special attack needs time to recharge after being used. The computer-controlled enemy will also be building units and sending them towards your base, so most likely, your units will meet enemy units along the way and begin killing each other. The computer-controlled units do not use special attacks, so you have an advantage. If you kill an enemy unit, you get awarded gold with which to build more units, as well as XP points. You also get awarded XP points if your own units get killed. Once your XP points reach certain set thresholds, you can spend money and enter a new Age. There are five Ages in the game, and each new Age comes with its own turrets and units, which are more powerful than the units and turrets of the previous Age. Winning the game is a matter of balancing offense and defense, and using your units’ special attacks appropriately and often.

To play “Age of War”, do visit, the web site of the Friv Games online.

August 22, 2010 – Total Drama Island Interactive Game

Filed under: Entertainment,Film & Television,Games & Toys — Tags: , — Paul @ 11:43 pm is the official website of the Total Drama Island, the animated series, and also the website where you can play the Total Drama Island Interactive game.

Total Drama Island (TDI) is an animated cartoon show that pokes fun at reality television shows. TDI is produced in Canada for Teletoon, and is shown in the United States on the Cartoon Network.

The show takes place at the fictional Camp Wawanakwa, and features twenty-two teens which participate in challenges and games every episode. Initially, the twenty-two campers are divided into 2 teams for the games, and the losing team gets called to the campfire at night, where Chris, the host, passes out marshmallows to those who can stay, and those who are voted off do not get marshmallows and must walk down the Dock of Shame to the Boat of Losers, on which they will leave the island and, according to Chris, “never, never, never, ever, ever, ever, come back, ever.” Basically, the cartoon is a bit like Survivor, but with really over the top stunts and jokes which make fun of the real contests that take place on real-life reality shows. If you are looking for something different and funny to watch, you may want to give TDI a try.

The TDI official website itself is a parody of websites of reality TV shows. You can view fake biographies of the “contestants” in TDI, and short summaries of each episode. The site also features the Total Drama Island Interactive game, which is accessed through the “Games” button. Every week, the site releases a new mini-game based on the week’s episode, and you can play the games to earn points. If this is your first visit to the site, you will be prompted to register with your name and address after you have finished a game so that your points can be saved. You get marshmallows for your points, and the marshmallows can be used as money in the game to buy various items. Your points accumulate, and at the end of the season, when all twenty-five mini-games have been played, the top twenty-two players with the highest points are entered into a draw, and the winner will get to do a short voice cameo in an episode.

So, if you are interested in the TDI show, or are interested in playing Total Drama Island Interactive game for a chance to do a cameo on the TDI show, visit
