[Review] [PC]

Can it really be holiday season already?  Now it begins: the rushing around, trying to find the best gifts at the lowest prices; bosses working you extra hard to make numbers before the end of year.  In other words, life has just become one big ball of stress for you, hasn’t it?

Hence why you’ve come over to read this article instead of doing your job, hmm?  Well, I’m glad to see you again!  It’s always a pleasure to aid in other people’s procrastination.  I mean, how do you think I find time to write these articles… hold on, boss is coming…

… Ok, he’s gone.  You good?  I’m good.

Anyway, this week’s game comes to us from Athens, Greece, and while I didn’t get to fly there personally, I came across this website from a different game I was looking at and found a group of little nuggets of flash joy.

The one I’m going to talk about today is called Znax.  Created by Nick Kouvaris, Znax is a simple game that is easy to learn, but really makes you think on what your next move is going to be.

To play, click on four squares of the same color that form a box.  When you do so, the squares in the center disappear, and new ones appear.  Plus you get points based off how big of a box you made.  You have five minutes to get as many points as you can.

Simple?  Looks that way, but as you get into that third and fourth minute, your eyes start to cross from staring at the screen, and you could end up wasting valuable seconds trying to straighten them.  There is no pause button, but that would be cheating.

My top score today is 99,900.  Think you can top that?  Go for it.
