Quick Picks – Great Games to Pick up and Play

Our designer, Ben, is a big fan of Ethan Meteor Hunter. Why? Because it’s quick to play at lunchtime, even on a virtual machine! (He’s a mac user…) It’s the kind of game that you can download fast and pick up and play whenever you’ve got a spare hour to kill, which is why it’s one of our Quick Picks.

We now have quite a few games that fall under this category, but we’ve narrowed it down to our top 5 quick picks that we think you shouldn’t miss:


Action Henk

Quick Picks 1 - Action Henk

Run, jump and butt-slide into the glorious toy-filled world of Action Henk! Become a master of momentum and defy physics as you race against a band of ragged 90s action figures to once and for all prove that Action Henk is the fastest of them all!


LA Cops

Quick Picks 2 - LA Cops

LA Cops is a fast, action packed 3D top down shooter set to a theme of 70s Cops in LA trying to do a tough job in a tough town. Gameplay includes an extra edge as you control two cops, using them strategically to get one up on the bad guys!


Ethan Meteor Hunter

Quick Picks 3 - Ethan Meteor Hunter

Freeze time and manipulate the world with endless possibilities: build the solution YOU want where nothing is scripted and levels can be solved in multiple ways. When Super Meat Boy meets Braid, you may die repeatedly and enjoy it!


Kill the Bad Guy

Quick Picks 4 - Kill The Bad Guy

Track the Bad Guys, be brutal and smart in your planning, and eliminate them one by one. But bear this in mind: each criminal’s death has to look like an accident. In each level, you’ll have the chance to splatter and destroy the Bad Guy using various weapons and traps.


Speed Kills

Quick Picks 5 - Speed Kills


Action-packed death racing, this is what Speed Kills is about! Players compete in various championships, ranging from bootleg rallies on the outskirts of the galaxy to big-league circuits set against the goliath skylines of metropolis cityscapes.


All of these games are quick to download, run well on most machines and are easy to pick up and play. Give them all a go and tell us which is your favourite and why.
