Distraction: Desktop Defence

99% of flash games are rubbish, but once in blue moon you come across a flash game. Desktop Tower Defence 1.5 is such a game, deceptive in it’s simplicity, fiendish in it’s hidden complexity. Admit it, you made a spreadsheet to calculate just which tower/upgrade combination was the best value for money or what path provided the most area of coverage versus length. I even attempted to integrate the damage per second inflicted per square per path to figure where those precious points were best spent - all in an effort to prevent some blobs moving from once side of the screen to the other…

Honourable mentions go to Scrabulous - the scrabble knock off that made grandma’s game cool again - and all the great abandonware out there.
