I remember when dating used to be simple. Considering that I’m a guy, it was my job to deliver a good time while being a perfect gentleman. That part was easy enough as several articles and books have been written for guys that are clueless in matters of love and relationships.

Bubbles in this Shoot & Pop Game are Frozen in Time
Frozen Bubble, from EGB, is a port of the free version of the popular Frozen Bubble game for the Mac and Linux platforms. It's the classic shoot and pop game, along the same lines as Snood, Puzzle Bobble and Bubble Town, which I reviewed recently.

Shift Your Thinking about Puzzle Games
Shift - You know that "paradigm shift" thing your boss always goes on about in meetings? I don't recall ever seeing a "paradigm" and I've always doubted it would "shift" if I did. After reviewing MunkyFun's Shift, I think I finally get what the boss has been talking about.
Flik is Fast-Paced Missile Flicking Fun
Flik markets itself as a puzzle game, which in many ways it is, but it also reminds me of some older arcade style games, especially Breakout. So as a game that spans a couple of genres, let’s take a look at what Flik offers.
