Dart board


'Motor racing game with immense pit-side complexity and a girl with bum-cleavage who cleans your visor.'

Did you dread Wednesday afternoons at school because you were no good at games. Probably makes you the sort of person who is quite good at these games then. Sports theme for November. Kick it, throw it or hit it with a stick.

Some games require your browser to have a 'plug in' for Shockwave. You can download this for free here here

If you are a parent, we advise you to try the game and the site it's on first before letting your kids play them, to make sure you're happy. (And, don't forget, you can also find great games for kids in our own Global Gang area).

To play a game, simply click on its name.

All Star Dodgeball
Sort of takes you back to games in the yard. Well it would if I’d had a yard. And any friends. Pick your team and throw balls at the opponents. None of that, ‘Below the knee only’ nonsense. Take ‘em out at the neck.

Well? Is it a sport or a game? Ponder the philosophy of whether a sport can be played whilst drinking and smoking as you try and aim this rather annoying dart at the board using hold-down and click (which is not a new government anti-terrorism policy).

Gutterball 2
Like Gutterball (12/04) only weirder stuff happens. You may need to adjust your 3D renderer. Like you know what that means. Oh you do. Sorry.

Mini Putt
Strangely, we managed to review Mini Putt 2 last December and never noticed we hadn’t reviewed the original. It’s crazy, annoying, time-consuming golf. Boasting amongst the web-log community tells of scores in the 20s. These people have too much time. I got 58, second go.

Raggit Extreme Danger
A simple little game of driving skill using the arrow keys to manoeuvre round a track avoiding the walls and the chicanes.

Slapshot Shootout
It’s ice hockey. In reality, played by nutters with sticks on slippy shoes and a really hard, cold surface to fall on. You are that nutter, in a pain-free, nerdy sort of way. Power that puck.

Splash Dash Racing
Motor racing game with immense pit-side complexity and a girl with bum-cleavage who cleans your visor (she’s 24 and single you are told). Great noises. Try to learn that it won’t make any difference how hard you hold down an arrow key whilst you corner or RSI will be just a click away.

Stick Cricket
A nice game where you can practice your batting (use four keys and good timing) against a variety of bowlers before registering (if you want) to make your score count in the perpetual test match. Anyway where’s the shame in being bowled by Sir Richard Hadlee? Even if he did do it without a run up.

3D Snowboarding
Power your way down a mountain picking up turbo charges, performing stumps and jumping over stunts. Or is it the other way round. I crashed. A lot. OK?

Winning Shot Basketball
Click and drag and dunk. People cheer.
