Summer Walk


 

'Use your mouse skills to keep him walking in a straight line or he'll fall asleep in the gutter. There may be other complexities but it's in German.'


Steve Tilley recommends a selection of target games this month. Shoot it, rescue it, eat it, guide it or spit balls at it.

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.

Bird
Dive for the fish, remembering you can't breathe underwater. Get more than one fish per dive for bonus points.

Bowman
Shoot arrows at a target or another bowman. Authentic blood if you hit him. Ouch.

Die Wagenschenke
The drunk is trying to get home. Use your mouse skills to keep him walking in a straight line or he'll fall asleep in the gutter. There may be other complexities but it's in German.

Fire Dragon
Melt the plunging ice-blocks and be nourished by the fruit inside. Fail to melt them and they bonk you on the bonce unless you sidestep. Basic stuff.

Rainmaker
Fly around on a cloud making it rain on the birds passing beneath you. If only.

Starry Night
Use the mouse to control a bubble which bounces a yellow star around the sky lighting up other stars. Lovely. Generally soothing. Thanks Orisinal people.

Summer Walk
Three birds wander along in the country, line astern, refreshing themselves on cherry bubbles and avoiding obstacles, wasps and stuff. Gain energy shields and add to the party as you go.

Wake Up Calls
You are a mouse-controlled mouse, floating gently to earth on a leaf, through the world's tallest tree, calming piano music in the background. Gently wake up the chrysalises and watch the butterflies take to the air. Orisinal must have soothed many office tempers. If this doesn't work go back to shooting cats.

Zuma
Stop the snake growing by spitting coloured balls out of the frog's mouth. Found this strangely compelling. Think it must have been the sound effects.
