Aqua Energizer
 
'Mind bending. Well mine bent anyway'

Back to games for grown-up children who like targets and puzzles this month. I finally got round to downloading a Yahoo toolbar with a pop-up blocker on it. It's saving me from madness; 37 blocked so far. You have to disable it if a game is designed to open automatically in a new window.

Some games require your browser to have a 'plug in' for Shockwave. You can download this for free here here

If you are a parent, we advise you to try the game and the site it's on first before letting your kids play them, to make sure you're happy. (And, don't forget, you can also find great games for kids in our own Global Gang area).

To play a game, simply click on its name.

Doom Funnel Chasers
A retooled version of Giant Penguin Slingshot. Space colonies are being terrorised by doom funnels. Stop them by slinging duct-tape into them, using the gravitational pull of planets to help it on its way.

Puzzled Sheep
Use the mouse to place arrows in the field and herd the puzzled sheep (tell me if you ever see a sheep not looking puzzled - I reckon it's default for sheep) from the sheep-pen to the targets. Different to Sheep Game from May 2003.

Shove It
Use the cursor keys to get your pet monster to push the balls onto the targets. Don't push any balls into unmoveable positions. Several free download levels and then 80 more if you register (and probably pay or something horrid like that).

Aqua Energizer
Move Nemo around to charge up the energizer and get to the next level. Throw rocks at the killer fish to get rid of them.

Cell Out
Simple target game. Fire the cue ball, hit the white balls; miss the red ones. Not snooker though.

Cubic
So simple to play. To complete the level, just remove all the coloured blocks. Drag blocks either one place left or right at a time. Gravity will pull unsupported blocks downwards into available spaces. When more than one block of the same colour come into contact, they disappear. On some levels you must make three blocks disappear at the same time. You have to work out how all three can come into contact simultaneously.

Do browse the OSBD site - Christian media company.

Black Box
Another on the OSBD web-site. Fire photons into the dark to deduce the position of the atoms. Mind bending. Well mine bent anyway.

Cats
Infuriatingly simple. The lead cat either sits or walks. Run the mouse bar over the others to make them copy. They are disobedient so-and-sos though. Then the lead cat changes just when you've got it sorted.

Apple game
Catch the falling apples. Boy do they plummet.
