Easy, Short Attention Span Games

Any recommendations for fairly easy games for the attention deficient?

Ideally something which could be played for a few minutes fun?

Deluxe Galaga
Datastorm
Cybernetix
Pang

Those aren't exactly "easy" games, but they are simple to pick-up and play for quick gaming sessions and are very good games. (Well, though if you eventually get GOOD at them, a game may last for a while )

I'd recommend my own games, though some people think they aren't very good, hehe

Quasarius is very simple and very easy too


IK+ is also great for quick sessions... you need some time to learn all controls, but you can have some fun just smashing the button and pushing on random directions up until you learn all moves

Shuffle Puck Cafe is also another good option, and you can pick easier opponents all the day if you want so.

Thanks for the suggestions both Cybernetix and your Quasarius were exactly what I was looking for!

I shall give the others a go and look for more shareware shootem ups.

CarVup and mcgeezer's Bomb Jack Beer Edition are really good for quick playing sessions.

Qwak is a GREAT recommendation, awesome game, very simple to pick up and play, great for quick sessions (But, again, when you get good at it, you may have longer sessions ).


Bomb Jack is also a very good recommendation (The new Beer Edition please, not the shody oficial port), it's very simple to play, excellent "pick up and play" gameplay...... though it's far of being an easy game. Which means gaming sessions will be very quickly (Either that or I *really* suck at Bomb Jack, my tries on it on the arcade version usually end up very quickly too )
