Welcome to another edition of Geek-Offs, where you'll find the perfect distractions to help you muddle your way through hump day each week.
When you see this week's selection for Geek-Off, you're probably going to think we called it in because we were too busy out enjoying the weather to get any real work done. Now, while that may actually be a true statement (hooray for patio drinking!), looks can be deceiving when it comes to a game like this.
It's entirely possible that Armor Games' Experimental Shooter is going to be your favorite distraction and the bane of your existence -- all in the next 15 minutes.
Your mission in this game, should you choose to accept it, is to work your way through 21 levels shooting little white bubbles. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, not so much.
While the objective of Experimental Shooter is pretty cut and dry -- aim and shoot at some simple little white bouncing balls -- no two levels are the same, so you really have to pay close attention.
Each level has its own set of rules, (seek guidance from the level names if you find yourself stuck and not knowing what to do), but sometimes even knowing the rules won't keep you from clicking like a madman and screaming at your laptop in a crowded Starbucks. Because when a level is called "You are mad," you may need to prepare yourself.
For the record, we've never called a game a dick. Until today.
