Skills required: Part jumping platformer and part endless running challenge, this cute game offers a stern exercise of your reflexes, hand-eye coordination, concentration and anticipation skills. Combine a safe racing strategy (staying out of trouble) with an aggressive desire to reach the Checkered Flag in as high a position as possible. 1st is, of course, the ultimate goal – but you can also progress by finishing below top spot, as each track is different.

At the beginning of each level, the entire background area is completely black and white in color – and you must restore the 4 key colors to the world in order to progress.

Skills required: In this tricky, jumping-based skill game, good focus and observation skills are vitally important as you scour each level in search of the mist-covered pots needed restore the colors to the levels. Problem-solving skills are also important as many initially inaccessible ledges must be reached by moving rocks into the correct areas.

Skills / strategy required: In this quirky problem-solving game, combine analytical thinking skills with creative engineering know-how as you work to figure out a solution that guides Pedro to the Exit Door in each level.

Background info: Professor Timothy tried to make a time machine from a gazillion of clocks. Unfortunately, the mechanism failed, and now Timothy (you) must try to retrieve all of the clocks from each level. However, the malfunction of time means that clones also randomly appear in each level – These are previous versions of you, stuck in a time loop! You must avoid these clones as coming into contact with one causes a devastating time paradox!
