Almost two months have passed since the creation of my game website Take 9. A site that I love to write for because I only review games that I like to play. The games are free as well which probably makes it an interesting website for you as well if you have a similar "game taste". I like turn based strategy games, roleplaying games, shoot em ups and puzzles mainly but will throw in the occasional ubergame that is that good that I like to play it even if I do not play games of that type usually.

To promote my website I post a small article every Tuesday that is listing the best games that I reviewed in the week at Take 9. I also post game videos of "could-be-a-smash-hit" games on the site like the first ever video of Duke Nukem Forever gameplay or a Dawn of War II trailer.

Back to the games that I reviewed last week. Tumiki Fighters is a unique Japanese shoot em up that the developer calls Sticky Shooter because parts of defeated enemy ships stick to the player's ship to add to its firepower and defense.

The second downloadable game was ZicZac, a challenging Tetris variation where the player has to create blocks of four or more blocks of the same color to remove them from the board. The blocks are falling down in a 45 degree angle which makes it more difficult than Tetris.

The browser game Play Polinko and Mr. Bounce on the other hand are both relaxing puzzle games. Your goal in Polinko is to hit all red dots on the screen with a ball that you shoot from the top of it. The ball bounces around and dots that you hit are removed from the screen which makes it more difficult to hit the remaining ones. You do have multiple balls at your disposal which makes it a little bit easier.
