The Onomastica is a very interesting platform adventure running game with a cool, linguistics twist. Playing the role of an acrobatic running and jumping character, you must leap across platforms and ledges made up of different words and letters. These interchangeable block words and letter fragments can be pushed together and manipulated to form new words which alter the game environment in a really clever way. For example – you might have to push the letters E-R toward the end of L-A-D-D – and suddenly, the completed word transforms into a LADDER that you can climb to get to the next ledge!

Sharp keyboard skills are also important as you attempt to join separate words and letter groupings together! Enjoy the fun word-play action!
Educational note: The name of the game ‘Onomastica’, comes from the Greek term ‘onomastics’ which is a branch of linguistic study that focuses on names and people.

Fast reactions, smart character management, and good strategy and decision making skills are all vital here to your commando team's success.

Reasons to play this game: Exercise your observation, concentration and coordination skills as you attempt to carefully navigate through each of the 21 increasingly difficult yet entertaining levels. Test your fast reactions as you quickly change direction and try to avoid damaging Hanna's helicopter. Engage your competitive spirit as you endeavor to complete all of the levels to prove your expertise as a true virtual chopper flying wizard!
Best strategy to win: A cool head, great patience and careful planning are key traits required here. There is no time limit, and many levels offer a variety of options on how to get to the Finishing Flag.

Each re-play of this clever puzzle and skill-based game provides a fun new test of your analytical thinking and problem-solving skills, visual awareness, reaction speed, coordination and keyboard control, and more.
