World Cup Breakout 2010 is a fun online arcade game where you have to advance through a series of soccer-based breakout challenges! Breakout games are an iconic type of 1970’s and 80’s classic games where the player has a paddle at the bottom of the game screen, and has to eliminate rows of bricks in the top half of the game screen with a bouncing ball! In World Cup Breakout, the bricks to be eliminated are in the form of opposition soccer players, and you have to blast them off the game screen with your own soccer player paddle and rebounding soccer ball. Loosely based around soccer football’s World Cup, you have to choose a country, and try to negotiate 4 rounds of 6 challenging levels.
This unusual and eccentric sports / arcade game mash-up requires sharp reactions and good observation skills as you have to keep an eye on the increasingly fast-moving ball and move your paddle to deflect it accordingly. Earn cool power ups in each level to increase your chances of progression to the World Cup Final! You can choose from the heavyweights of the soccer world, for example, Spain, Brazil, Germany, Argentina, and Italy – but at the end of the day, it all boils down to your mouse control skills and quick reflexes! Ok Soccer Superstar, remember to keep your eye on the ball! Happy brick breaking!
Pikachu Pokemon Rescue is an addicting platform adventure game for kids, based on iconic characters of the ever-popular Pokémon series. Unlike classic Pokémon games where you catch, collect, and battle the exotic creatures, here you have to guide Pikachu (the cute electric mouse and all-round Pokemon legend) on a treacherous platform-jumping journey through 25 challenging levels. Leap from ledge to ledge, avoid bad guys, unlock doors, collect power-ups and more.
This straight-forward arcade-style activity isn't just for die-hard Pokemon fans. It could also be a hit with those kids who love a good platform challenge where you have to dodge, weave, and jump to avoid coming into contact with the bad guys. Quick reactions, good strategy, problem solving skills and expert timing are all very important here as one little mistake could result in a big fall, and disaster for Pikachu! Are you ready to write another exciting chapter in Pokemon history?
Caveman is a wild and wacky "Digimon Vs Humans" arcade-style platform game where you play the role of a slingshot-wielding caveman who has to rescue his girlfriend from a horde of time-travelling, dinosaur-like Digimon characters! Hundreds of these nasty creatures have amazingly fallen through a space-time warp – sending them all the way back to the caveman era (for those unfamiliar with the popular game series, Digimon are digital monsters of various forms living in a parallel universe that originated from Earth's various communication networks). Unfortunately for you in the caveman era, these troublesome monsters aren’t friendly – and you have to defeat them using a simple but devastating mix of platform jumping skills, sling shot shooting, and good, old-fashioned rock smashing!
This fun and eccentric caveman battle adventure is reminiscent of classic arcade platform games like Mario and Donkey Kong in that you have to leap from ledge to ledge and defeat bad guys on a noble quest to save a Damsel in distress! Quick reactions, accurate shooting skills, and fast fingerwork are all important abilities here, with the lumbering Digimon becoming more dangerous and numerous as you progress. Ok Slingshot Hero, it’s time to show these Digimon just how determined a primitive human can be!
Transport yourself 500 years into the future – where car racing is a thing of the past. In this day and age, it’s all about high-octane "Robot Racing" – and you’ve got the best seat in the house; the driver’s seat! Bot Racing is a fun, addicting and futuristic racing arcade game where you take control of your very own a high-tech, robotic speed machine! Choose from 4 amazing different hover-bots, and compete on 9 different tracks that are, literally, out of this world. Set in weird and wonderful industrial landscapes, these circuits are unlike anything on planet Earth! Once you’ve tried Bot Racing, you might not be able to go back to boring old cars again!
Be careful out there - each robot has awesome missile capabilities - you can be blasted out of the race if you don’t watch your back. You need to exhibit slick driving skills to succeed, with extremely tight corners on each track, and outrageous overtaking maneuvers to be attempted. You’re going to need bucket loads of determination to overcome your tough, computer-controlled opponents. Quick reactions are all-important, too! Can you defy gravity, and rise to the top of the Robot Racing Rankings? Better strap yourself in – futuristic racing can be a really bumpy ride! Don't get pushed aside! Ok Robot Renegade, let’s Blast Off!
Monsterland: Junior Vs Senior is a fun and increasingly challenging physics-based puzzle arcade game where you have to unite two block-shaped family members (little and large monsters) using good strategy, patience, and some understanding of the effects of gravity. Senior is a rectangular-shaped, grumpy old monster who just wants to sleep the day away. However, Junior, a fun-loving, mischievous little square-shaped guy, is determined to wake Senior up by jumping on top of him! Junior cannot move by himself, so your job is to help Junior reach Senior by strategically removing objects (other monsters), and creating momentum and pathways to connect the two together.
Strategic planning is the key to this tricky brain-teaser, as you have to carefully plan out a route to get Junior to his older, sleepier friend. Your creative engineering skills and problem-solving abilities are also important, as you often have to build bridges and pathways to ensure Junior gets the chance to gleefully ruin poor old Senior’s siesta. This is one cute online puzzle that won’t have you yawning and ready for bed – you need to be very alert to succeed. Ok Puzzle Whizz, let’s wake up some sleepy monsters! Happy mischief making, and good luck!
Tetris’d is a very challenging arcade-style platform game based on the classic puzzle concept, Tetris. However, there is a twist. In Tetris’d, you have to acrobatically and dramatically dodge and evade falling blocks (meteorites), and survive for as long as possible in this intense and perilous environment. You play the role of an highly-mobile, high-jumping Stickman under pressure, and you have to stay out of harm’s way as best as you can by weaving and leaping around to avoid the structures falling fast out of the sky. Perform dangerous flips and cool wall jumps - just be careful not to get ‘Tetris’d (i.e. – squished!) being over-confident.
This fun, skill-based game requires super-quick reactions, doubly nifty fingers and a cool head. It should be ideal for fans of old-school retro platform activities like Mario and Donkey Kong, and any gamers who love high-octane survival games. Good luck!

Catch an egg and coins in this fun game! Cannon Coinage is a tricky and addicting arcade-style skill game for kids where you have to use an egg-firing cannon to retrieve gold coins that are stuck up a tree. Collect all of the gold coins in each level to progress by dislodging them from the tree and catching or collecting them. Each time your egg hits off a coin, the coin falls from the tree. As it falls, it can dislodge other coins from the branches if it makes contact with them. Be careful however, because if your egg falls all the way back down to the ground, it cracks – so you have to catch it too.
You must very quickly move your cannon over and back underneath the tree to catch the falling egg and to collect the coins that are falling or land on the ground. If you keep letting the egg fall to the hard ground, it breaks open and it’s game over! Collect all of the coins in as few shots as possible to score extra points.

You begin with a tiny little pixel ledge that you have to build up by collecting the falling little objects. There are different colored pixels to collect, which restore health and add extra shapes to the Tree.
As the levels progress, the game zooms out to reveal a bigger grid and the pixels fall faster. The cool retro-style graphics give this game an authentic arcade feel. The speed of gameplay will really test your observation and quick reaction skills. Ready to build a neat pixel skyscraper? Good, now show us your collecting skills and grow that Tree as high as you can.
Warp Shot is a challenging gravity-based arcade game where you have to propel a ball through a portal in a series of increasingly difficult levels. In this mini-golf-like puzzle game, you have to use obstacles, gateways and gravity to move the ball around the game screen and through the portal (exit). Like golf, each level has a par score and your goal is to get the ball into the portal in as few shots as possible.
Each level increases in difficulty, with objects and other obstacles blocking the easy path between the ball and the portal. Spot pathways, shoot through teleporters and judge the correct angles from which to take your shot. This tricky problem-solving puzzle will really test and exercise your observational skills, hand-eye coordination as well as your strategic planning abilities. Ready to step up to the mark and show us your ball control skills? Ok then, Good luck.
Are you ready to predict the future? Trajestimate is a prediction-based puzzle game where you have to quickly figure out (against the clock) and select which hole a fast-moving ball in space will end up in. The bouncing ball ping-pongs off the sides of the playing field, and you score points by correctly predicting where the ball will end up. This is a decision-making under pressure game where you have to quickly envisage the flight angles of the ball. The earlier you guess (in the least time, the more points you earn.) However, if you incorrectly predict the final destination of the ball, you lose a large number of points.
This fun brain teaser will test and exercise your spatial awareness, as well as your observational skills. This arcade-style game could be used as a fun problem-solving activity could help to promote and improve quick-thinking skills and decision making.
Dirk Valentine and the Fortress of Steam is a fun online platform game where you play the role of Dirk, a British General who uses a magic Chain Gun to defeat his enemies.

In each level, you must defeat the Baron’s troops, release prisoners and climb obstacles to progress.
Be prepared for a surprise, as this isn’t your average shooting game. Dirk’s Chain Gun, as well as blasting opponents, also builds bridges so that he can reach seemingly impossible ledges and secret areas. You must carefully craft these bridges to help Dirk progress through the increasingly difficult levels. Making bridges and eliminating the Bad Guys at the same time is very challenging, so you’ll need quick reactions, nifty fingers and an engineering brain to succeed.
The Fortress of Steam is full of nasty surprises, so be careful of hidden missiles and speedy opponents. Once your health bar goes, it’s game over and you have to restart the level. This fast-paced action game has cool retro graphics, and the gameplay of a good, old-style adventure platformer. Think you’ve got the skills to help Dirk defeat the bumbling Baron?

CubeWall is a very simple and addicting retro arcade-style game where your mission is to avoid red cubes as you travel through an eerie maze of different colored objects. You control a small ball of electric light that has only one weakness – it cannot touch the red cubes. The electric ball blasts through any other color cube by firing an electric pulse at them, but it must avoid the red cubes – or else it’s game over.
This cool and unusual survival game should help to improve hand-eye coordination as you strategically plot a path through the difficult maze. The cubes come toward you at a steady pace, but that gets faster and faster as you make your way through the maze. You must try to survive by avoiding all of the red cubes! This game employs a cool new twist on classic maze games – the ball of light is controlled entirely by your computer mouse. Your usual cursor is replaced by this intense ball of electric light and it moves wherever your mouse moves, so make sure you have a steady hand! Ready? Let’s blast through this maze!
Ever wanted to play a game that was a cross between Pac-man and Snake? Well now you can! Critical Mass is a fun, retro arcade-style game that applies the gameplay of those old classic games to form a cool new game where your mission is to build up enough ‘Critical Mass’ to eliminate your enemies. Once you collect enough power-ups, you reach ‘Critical Mass’ and turn from a timid little ball into an angry nuclear fireball, destroying anything that comes near you.
Just like Pac-man, you start off trying to avoid your enemies but once you collect enough of the yellow nuclear bonuses – you transform into a ticking time-bomb and your enemies better watch out! This game should help to improve your reactions as you quickly dodge around enemies, while also exercising your hand-eye coordination. The quick-fire and addicting nature of this game should appeal to avid gamers and beginners alike. Ready? Let’s see some destruction!
Tasty Planet Dinotime is a delightfully fun and addicting arcade-style game where you play the role of the Goo (a hungry little grey blob created by a crazy scientist in an experiment gone wrong). The Goo's mission is very simple – to EAT EVERYTHING! And, that is Good! Every time he eats something, he increases in size - so the bigger he gets, the bigger the meal!
The Goo can munch on anything that is smaller than him – and he sure is hungry! He starts off tiny - nibbling on little bits of candy, but as he grows, he gets a taste for beakers, test tubes and even mice! Soon he’s big enough to scoff chairs and tables. Control the Goo and devour everything in sight – there’s no stopping him! This game, as well as being super-fun to play, is also totally relaxing and refreshing!
