Vector TD is a good way to waste a hour: http://www.candystand.com/uk/play.do?id=18283

Like desktop tower defense don't play if you seriously need to do something!

Ohh, thats Vector TD 2 though.

Have to see if that perfect strategy works there. Vector TD was too darn easy once you came up with a good strategy (spoler screenshot)

Fantastic Contraption (addictive flash game)

Postposted on Sat Nov 08, 2008 9:30 pm

I hate it when people link me to these, but I've been trapped by another one.

Here's one of my designs. Just hit Play and continue/ok and then hit Start at the top left to see my machine go.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=4060203

It is built so it moves forward and falls, then the counter-wheel spin sends it the other direction.

Here's another one on the same map:

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=4060610

That one has a wheelie over the finish line thanks to the counter-weight.

Use your mouse wheel to zoom out a bit.

I'm sure there are 100000 solutions, but I thought the first one was sort of cool. If you hit Stop you can modify the design.

The goal is always to get the little pink unit into the red objective area.

For me early on I focused too much on the contraption locomotion and not the fact you can build sort of bendy-levers with spring in them, counter weights, levers, etc... i.e. you can make a catapult or trebuchet in certain situations.

Woops, didn't realize there was one of these already, and I will have to do everything in my power not to click any of these posts or I will not get anything done next week.

That game has taken the Internet by storm, from what I can see.

Here's 1066, an educational game where you take control of one of the three armies fighting to control England in that year.

Learn to Fly. Quite an addictive game. My personal best is 16 days to finish.

http://armorgames.com/play/3789/learn-to-fly

Crush the Castle. I thought it was a nice game, had some fun once I finished with the level editor.

Thought I could update this. This site has a great collection, sortable by release date (with some as modern as this month), plays, rating, etc. You don't have to be a member, even to rate the games (1-5 stars). Their archive goes back a couple years, so you really get to search the best of the best, in terms of tower defense. Also, you can search the source files for ".swf", and access that URL directly for full screen mode:

http://www.towerdefence.net/

Also, the casual collective has some good stuff too, particularly multiplayer-flash (free) like Minions:

http://www.casualcollective.com/

Those are my two favorite flash game sites.
