I guess today is my reunion day with my Chromebook, well… my Chrome OS actually. This is the first day that my Chromebook is run by Chrome OS again after months of experiments. I tried to look into the games section and quite surprised when I saw that there are more games than the last time I opened Chrome Web Store. And what caught my sight was Incursion 2: The Artifact.
Unfortunately, some games aren’t polished to perfection (yet?). I don’t know if it’s in Beta phase or something. Without trying to sound cynical, I can say that gaming on Chromebook is still worse than gaming on Linux or Mac. I just feel like it takes too much effort to play a single game. I would rather download the game and install it on my computer to play it rather than waiting for it to load.
Incursion 2: The Artifact is a strategy game that reminds me a lot of Tower Defense I played on my 2.5″ Android phone.
Please watch the video, I didn’t accelerate the speed so you can “enjoy” the waiting too. >;p
Here Is The Process I Went Trough to Play Incursion 2: The Artifact
What bothered me (besides how I lost my temper waiting to play) was the fact that it had to open another browser to display this game. I found it cluttering. But, since this game looks promising, I kept waiting after all.
If you want real gaming experience, try running Phoenix OS on your Chromebook.
For you who also want to try this game, you can get this game from Chrome Web Store.
These are the step to make the game more enjoyable:
- Copy the address from the new browser it opens.
- Paste it into Chrome <— this should leave the need to mess with Flash Player.
- The game should load.
- Press the key combination Ctrl + shift + + (that’s three buttons) to zoom-in the screen.
To be honest, I love this game so much I hated it. 😀
