The basic idea of Flashy is simple. You keep the green ball out of the circle in the middle of the screen using the paddle that looks suspiciously like a URL. Which it is. A URL, I mean.
It’s also a descendant of Pong. A great-grandchild of the black and white game that basically sparked the video gaming craze. Now with power-ups. That’s right. If the evil enemy ball hits a power up, something good happens.
There’s not much to say about this game except that it’s addictive in the way Pong was addictive. You’ll play it for awhile, and then decide you’d rather be serving food.
Simple games that involve protecting your territory never get old. Ever.
