Loondon

Kongregate’s Loondon is a bittersweet fairy-tale puzzle-game, done as a free online Flash game, in which you help Jonah the hunchback… “in his search for happiness.”

It’s a pity that Flash game sites such as Kongregate think people are still living back in 1997, with a 12″ CRT monitor running at 800 x 600. Force Flash games at Kongregate to expand to full-screen with Full Screen Kongregate. When you do this, you’ll see why game sites might not want to allow full-screen. Flash’s scalable vector graphics, the ones that are supposed to scale cleanly and crisply to any size? They’re not there. The people making many of these games seem to be using a lot of bitmaps, and these pixelate horribly when scaled up. However, at least you can see what you’re doing, and read the tiny text.
