Pixel Pop

Keep in rhythm with our poptastic new game: Pixel Pop.

Play through an assortment of wacky scenarios each with its own musical twist. Then use your newly acquired musical powers to beat the mega mix at the end of each stage.

Can you become top of the pops?

Breaking the ice...

Happy New Year to everyone - we have another winter game to share with you today: Icebreaker.

It was actually snowing in London this morning so we thought it would be quite appropriate to launch this one today!

Use your mouse to cut through the ice and try to get all of the trapped frozen vikings back to their longboat.

Anyway it's back to work for all of us now... we released 20 games in 2008 - let's see if we can beat that in 2009!

Frost Bite 2

As promised our winter sequel is here... Frost Bite 2.

If you hadn't already guessed it's a sequel to our popular winter mountain climber: Frost Bite.

After taking a little holiday ice-skating in Thin Ice we're back to climbing bigger and even more exciting mountains this year.

Don't look down!

More Fan Art

A few pieces of fan-art to show you... Check out this image of a Nitrome Racing Car sent in to us by David - created as part of a university project. We were really impressed with how detailed the pictures look!

There is another Nitrome comic (sent in by Julieta):

We have also been sent in these JackFrost inspired images by Ruth Lin:

...And there's some Final Ninja inspired artwork here by Silvre:

Site slowdown issues

A few of you might have noticed that the site's running a little bit slow at the moment, particularly at certain times of the day.

Please bear with us - we are trying to get it sorted out as fast as possible!

Basically our current hosting provider has let us down and has moved us onto a system that actually can't cope with the website's demands.

We are in all honesty not experts when it comes to hosting and due to the growing popularity of our site it is now getting a little beyond our current capabilities and we are having to dive into the great unknown!

If anyone out there happens have any suggestions (we're possibly looking for a system administrator well versed in load balancing and cluster servers) and also happens to be in the London area please contact us.

Hopefully the site will be back to normal soon!

Toxic 2 Lives!

The waiting is finally over... we are as shocked as you are!

Toxic 2 has been released and you can now play it here.

Anyway we hope you enjoy the game - we have put in a lot of work into this one.

I wonder if anyone out there can find all of the secret hidden levels?!

Flipside

Check out our new topsy-turvy racer Flipside... Drive up walls, along ceilings, over cogs, avoiding giant wrecking balls and killer lasers to get first over the finish line and earn your freedom!

Where is Toxic 2!

"When is Toxic 2 going to be released?" "What's going on I've been checking every day for Toxic 2" "Toxic 2 better be great cos you're taking a long time!" "Has Toxic 2 been cancelled?" "You suck... you said Toxic 2 was coming soon!" "Can you bring out Toxic 2 for my birthday?"

These are just some of the many emails we've had about Toxic 2... we do read them :)

We thought it was about time that we gave you all an update on the situation with Toxic 2. The game is finished and has been for a few months... there is nothing left to do on the game. We honestly thought the game would be out by now but it is up to the sponsor, which in this case is MTV. I'm sure they have a plan for a special launch but until then we're just waiting the same as you.

Be patient it is a great game!

Bomba

We have another explosive new game for you:
Bomba - here's our take on the classic mouse avoider game... Explore the caves, collect the stars, avoid enemies and generally cause chaos with the different power-ups!

by Mat

Numbskull

Just in time for Halloween we have:
Numbskull and a new skin for the site! Get the skull to his body by rotating the creepy castle of doom! There are 50 devilish levels to work through - don't lose your head! Happy Halloween!

by Mat

In The Doghouse

Another new game for you today:
In The Doghouse that we made for Miniclip. Ever wondered what the dog gets up to when you're not in the house? Well we did and this is what we found out!

For those of you who are wondering why we've had a lot of games out recently... we're not making them any faster - honest! This game was actually built back in May and Mallet Mania was built in March/April... It sometimes takes a while for them to be released!

by Mat

Mallets Mallet

We launched Mallet Mania last Thursday, again for Miniclip. In this game you take control of an isometric croquet mallet and you have to hit the ball into the hole within a certain number of turns. Sounds easy? It can be harder than you think!

Sorry for the delayed blog entry on this one... we didn't forget - we've just been really busy finishing off Toxic 2. Its very nearly ready so stay tuned!

by Heather

Onekey game!

In our latest game Onekey for Miniclip we challenge the player to progress using only one key: the spacebar! Sounds simple?! You might be surprised at how many ways it can be used!

Help the tribesman get to the end of each level and if you can, pick up the five bonus crystals on each level!

Enjoy!

Twang wins award!

We're fresh back from the Flash Forward film festival in San Francisco. It was a great event so we recommend all you developers out there check it out.

We're thrilled to announce that we won the People's Choice award for Twang! which we developed for MTV Arcade.

The actual picture here is of us actually going up to accept the award. Thanks to Ada from MochiMedia for the picture - you can see this and other pictures of the event at MochiMedia's Flickr page.

The actual award is a huge orange rubber arrow... strange but cool! Special thanks to everyone who voted for us!
