The Squirrel Escape is a stimulating, jumping and ledge-based platform puzzle game where you must guide an eccentric member of the Squirrel Family through a series of mini levels where escape is your key objective!

His task is to escape from a multi-room, warehouse-style prison that includes dozens of pesky, rat-like adversaries, moving ledges, electrical switches, dangerous laser beams, and more!
Skills required: This fun, interactive, movement-based arcade game requires swift keyboard control skills, good hand-eye coordination, and the ability to quickly figure out the fastest way to escape each level (by observing and analyzing the environment). Dogged determination and great patience are essential skills required here – especially in later levels when frustrating elements such as laser beams and fast-moving ledges enter the fray.
Draw in-game elements and discover your route to the exit door in this eccentric action-platformer game: Sketch Quest is a challenging, innovative, hand-drawing adventure platform game with wacky animations and the opportunity to design and draw your own in-game weapons! The concept is simple – you must guide your young character through a series of dangerous, ledge and enemy-filled levels. However, the innovation comes in the form of the madcap drawings, and the fact that you gradually unlock weapons that are drawn free-hand by you!
Skills required: As this is a skill-based ledge and jumping game at its core, you must utilize fast reactions, good hand-eye coordination skills and nifty keyboard control to enjoy success.

Skills / strategy required: Focus, concentration and great determination are essential if you want to ‘go deep’ into this one-level arcade game. Good visual skills and nifty keyboard control are also required in your quest for survival. A good strategy is to keep your bubble cluster constantly on the move – If you remain static, you can easily get caught in a corner with no escape route!
Rainbow is a straight-forward, platform-based, maze game where you must unlock the Exit Door in each ledge-filled level by collecting the 4 pots of gold (each of which contains a colored mist above it, representing the missing colors - red, yellow, green and blue). 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. The catch is that the collectible pots required to restore each color are often in hard-to-reach locations - and you must move boulders and other objects to gain access to the missing pots.
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. Swift keyboard control is also important on your quest through each maze-like level.
Reclaym is an innovative, interactive teamwork and brainteaser-style platform game for older kids / teens where you must guide a bear made of clay through a series of side-scrolling, obstacle-based levels.

For example, he can be split into two in order to hold down extra switches, or flattened into a pancake shape in order to squeeze through tight gaps, and more.
Background info: You play the role of the former ruler of ‘Claytonia’. Having been ousted by the evil Lord Claymore, you must find the remaining pieces of yourself by progressing through the various traps and obstacle-filled levels laid out by Lord Claymore.

Pick & Dig is a challenging and stimulating, logic-based, brain teaser puzzle game of 36 levels where you must very carefully guide Pedro the Pink through dangerous mines and a series of platform-based levels using tools such as pickaxes, shovels, ladders, and other mining equipment. Being a large, egg-shaped creature, Pedro cannot jump, so he needs to gain access to ledges and exit doors by knocking down obstacles with a pickaxe, digging through the ground using a shovel, and climbing via ladders.
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. A good strategy is to be patient and take your time – Try to logically and methodically break down what you need to do step by step in order to get Pedro where he needs to go. Trial and error (learning from your mistakes) is a very important element of this fun game.
Intrusion is a highly-challenging, platform-based, side-scrolling shooter game for older kids where you must blast your way through five levels of enemies including robots, skilled enemy combatants, and helicopters.

Use fast reactions, good timing and deft keyboard control to collect the clocks, and try to dodge and weave around the blue clones of the professor that appear.
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!
Skills / tip: Very fast reflexes, good observation and hand-eye coordination skills are all really important in this ledge and jumping-based skill and puzzle game. The dangerous clones behave erratically, but they always repeat their movements. Try to use this factoid to your advantage in your quest to avoid contact with them!
