Game Night: AudioSurf

Tonight I played AudioSurf. It's a music/rhythm game where you move your ship left and right on the track to collect blocks and avoid obstacles. The big twist here is that the tracks are procedurally generated from any music you want! You can select tracks from your own library and play them.

There is an online leader board, so you can compete with friends and strangers to get high scores on any track. I really enjoy playing this game, it can be really relaxing!

Game Night: World of Goo

Tonight I played World of Goo. This is a puzzle game, in the vein of Lemmings. Your aim is to get your Goo Balls to the end of the level, using them to build structures to get there.

World of Goo
Each level has different challenges, with a variety of type of Goo Balls. It can get challenging, since your structures are flexible and tend to sway as they get taller. It's a pretty addicting game and there is a hidden challenge, called OCD, if you manage to rescue the maximum number of Goo Balls.
Definitely a game worth picking up.
