Bruce Lee Iron Fist

If you like action and pretending to be a Kung Fu master, then this game is sure to please. In typical Bruce Lee fashion, the bad guy’s butts are handed to them with a series of jump kicks, kick sweeps and karate chops. The object of the game is to challenge the karate champions of the underground to a dual, win and bring them to justice. To perform the fighting moves, simply use your number keypad, and press 0 to initiate the special attack when the special move bar appears at the top of the screen. If you love the sprite graphics in Street Fighter II, you’ll love the crystal clear, colorful graphics in this game. The only downside to Bruce Lee Iron Fist is that you need internet connection to play after downloading it.

Midnight Pool 3

If you ever wanted to play pool in the middle of the night, but couldn’t sneak away, this is the game for you. This is a pool game unlike any other and there is a reason that it’s taking place at midnight. Midnight Pool 3 has three playing modes: quick game, career mode, and friend mode. Quick mode is literally a quick match between you and the computer. Career mode allows you to play in a slightly more challenging scenario. In this mode, you’ll be pitted against other pool players to settle a score between you two. You’ll be periodically  taken to a scene where you’re talking trash to each other (which is what makes this mode so exciting). In the friend mode, you’ll have the option of playing against friends in the same 8-ball, British 8-Ball, 9-Ball and 3-Ball setups.

Project Gotham Racing

If you love the feeling of your virtual ‘pedal to the metal’, then you’ll love the high intensity racing game Project Gotham Racing. In this visually stunning Java racing game, you won’t be bored to death with plain racing tracks and endless twists in turns. In fact, you’ll be confronted with obstacles that you have to avoid or drive through in order to up the ante a bit. This game is challenging, addictive and has a moderate learning curve, so it’s fun for people of all ages.
