If you’re looking for an excellent time-waster, look no further than this little flash game based on the hilarious TV show The IT Crowd, currently in its fourth series (what the UK call seasons) on channel 4 in the UK. If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll absolutely adore the game – if you’ve never watched it before, head over to Amazon and buy The IT Crowd: The Complete Series (Seasons 1, 2 & 3) immediately.
If you’re already a fan, the game should be amazing for you – it puts you in the shoes of a new IT temp working with Roy, Moss, and Jen, keeping a watchful eye on the network, zapping spam and viruses as they appear, whether from the Internet or wireless access points, responding to complaints from users, and making sure the network stays free and clear for the flow of information. As the game proceeds, you can upgrade your network with spam slurpers or antivirus injectors to lend you a hand when you’re not looking – all you have to do is make it through your shift to get through the level and to the next day.
Head over and give it a try!
