Fragger is a new game from Miniclip.com that gives you a pack of grenades and a phalanx of immobile terrorists and says, "Have fun!" Once you've set aside your silly ethical hang-ups about attacking helpless, faceless enemies, you might think that the game is similar to Angry Birds. It's actually a lot closer to BASIC classic, Gorillas.

Then you will like this

Back in the old days, we had to adjust our angle and velocity manually. You kids today get to use your fancy touch screens to aim the grenades and adjust how far they fly. The goal, of course, is to rid the levels of anyone in a mask.

One interesting addition is a "View the Solution" mode. While the levels are fairly straightforward, if you do happen to find yourself stuck, you can pull up a video demonstrating how to approach the level. Gaming purists might consider this cheating, but then gaming purists might also not consider this a real game. Casual games, have fun!

      I think it's about as fun as Angry Birds nowadays. Which to me doesn't mean much, but to others may mean it'll kill many hours of their lives.

      The lit up lights on half-destroyed windows still haunt me at night!

        Lol, I played gorillas for a long time on my dad's old 286 dx-2 66mhz with 4MB of RAM. Woot! Dos 5.0 ;)

    Played this a fair bit on the iphone.. pretty decent game controls where a little bit flakey sometimes and its gets bloody hard to get 3 stars in the later levels.... until I realised you can buy stuff from the shop within the game (once you gain enough stars) so can detonate bombs remotely when in the air and makes it a fair bit easier.
