'If you don’t know how to play you may also not know that Bush got a second term.'
Fancy some puzzles to solve? No sooner have you asked than we deliver. This month, some puzzles to solve. Eight things to do instead of Su Doku. And Su Doku. Well there is a new rule that it has to be everywhere. One imaginary gambling game thrown in for good measure.
Some games require your browser to have a 'plug
in' for Shockwave. You can download this for free 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
To play a game, simply click on its name.
Area Flat 2
Bottom to top shoot ‘em up. Stuff comes piling in at you which you wouldn’t really want to find in space (giant letters, space ships, debris). Never mind. Move your ship out of the way or just shoot it.
You have different shaped tiles to fill a grid. Educational (good for children) and slightly annoying if the last shape won’t go in the last hole.
The unfortunate crate man is trapped in a warehouse where he needs to reach a red crate but can only doing it by shifting other crates around and standing on them. Nightmare.
Remove touching tiles of similar colours in a solitaire-like way. Try and end up with less than 20 and a high score. Requires invention of a user-name and password but no registration as such and no personal details are requested.
Click on a frog and it will stick out its tongue and eat a dragonfly. If its tongue hits another frog that one will stick out its tongue and spin round. Put together combinations to score bonuses. Easier to play than explain.
Click on a path for the big flipper to flip its flipping way round the board. Collect all the flowers to progress a level. Collect suns and stars and get bonus points. Avoid the vanishing tiles.
Play Your Cards Right without Brucie. Gamble imaginary money (the best sort) against the next card being higher or lower. Get four right in a row to win. Just a tad slow and unresponsive. Do let us know if you have problems too and we’ll tell.
Swivel tiles so they make a picture with one of the ones adjoining them and then they both disappear; can you make the whole board vanish?
Old children’s toy from a few years back. Simon (a four colour device) flashes at you and you have to copy the colours in sequence. Can you remember a sequence of ten colours in a row? Fifteen? Twenty?
The craze that is allegedly sweeping the nation. Well it appears to be in every newspaper but as The Times started it we refer you to their web-site where previous puzzles are archived. If you don’t know how to play you may also not know that Bush got a second term, Blair a third and the French and Dutch voted no in the European Constitution referenda. Oh yes, and you can now take photographs using your mobile phone.
