Fancy a challenging strategy game where you must solve a maze escape route puzzle by editing the game level yourself? Welcome to Level Editor 2, a cool building block-based puzzle game for kids and teens, where you have to help our little Stickman friend to overcome dangerous obstacles and get to the exit door (end of each level) by strategically deploying blocks (and bombs), all within a certain amount of time. Along the way, you need to try and grab as many gold coins as you can to boost your time!
This tricky game requires proper planning and crafty moves – random recklessness won’t work here! It’s all about intelligently manipulating the level so you are able to get to the end of it. This is a challenging and stimulating brain-teaser that will test your ability to overcome – beyond belief! You’re in control here – you are the Level Editor; it’s up to you to make it work! (Note: Brain cells can go missing during this game!) Ready for action? Best of luck Bright Spark!
You play the role of the skinny Stickman and your goal is to get to the brown exit door, using your clever construction and destruction tactics! You need to place those blocks in the correct positions or it’s game over! You can sometimes see where you are meant to place the blocks; this indicated by the white texts in the game screen. The red “X” means that you can’t place them here!
Use the available blocks, bombs and keys to make a feasible route, all the way through to the exit door way. Avoid anything spiky – if you touch or land on anything with spikes, you lose a life. If you fail a level, you are given the option to see the solution, try again or skip the level. OK, things are about to get very sticky!
Lever Physics is a challenging, math, physics and equilibrium-based game for upper elementary school / middle school students, high school teens and grownups where you must place and balance weights (fun items and characters) on a ‘seesaw-style’ beam connected to the ground by a pivot (fulcrum). Playing against the clock, you must place any available weights onto the lever (beam), and try to keep it perfectly balanced in the middle.
Some quick physics revision: A lever is a simple mechanical device which consists of a beam or stick or rod, and helps to lift weights with less effort. To be effective (as a lever), it must have a support to pivot on. This pivot is called a fulcrum. Levers can then be used to exert a large force over a small distance at one end of a structure by exerting only a small force over a greater distance at the other end of the same structure (beam). (Physics teachers - Brief correction welcome here if needed..!)
The Law of Equilibrium: A lever is in equilibrium when "the load" and "the effort" balance each other. The effort (weight) multiplied by its distance from the fulcrum = the load (weight) multiplied by its distance from the fulcrum. This law of equilibrium is true for all classes of levers.
For example, 2 pounds of effort exerted 4 feet from the fulcrum will balance 8 pounds located 1 foot on the other side of fulcrum. This effort times (multiplied by) distance about the fulcrum is the "Torque" (rotational force).
Back to Lever Physics Flash game!: Don't be fooled by the fun and playful imagery in this load balancing brain-teaser! It is a tricky, analytical thinking puzzle and logic problem solving challenge that requires good observation skills and hard thinking combined with mathematical and engineering solutions.
This interactive, point-and-click activity allows some trial and error (by quickly placing, removing and re-positioning weights) but you definitely cannot delay your decisions for long as the clock is ticking fast! Ok Balancing Master, can you ‘lever’ yourself to the top of the class?
3 Slices 2 combines physics, gravity, and geometry to produce a tricky mouse-clicking puzzle game where you have to eliminate as much or as many of the red and blue shapes from the game area with three strategically-positioned turns (‘slices’) in each level. You are the ‘Master Slicer’, and must figure out the slicing length and angle for each turn that should produce the optimal gravitational reaction of the cut shapes so that a target percentage of the red (or red and blue) shapes are successfully eliminated from the game zone. This is not as easy as you might initially think because you have to contend with awkwardly-positioned shapes, difficult slicing angles, and unorthodox shapes (the blue ones) which rise like helium-filled balloons when freed!
This difficult and addicting online problem solving brain-teaser requires good observation skills, strategic planning and prediction skills, as well as pinpoint mouse-clicking. An appreciation for the laws of physics and gravity is definitely helpful. For example, you may have to perform one or two preliminary slices to move shapes into position before executing one final / main slice to cause the main gravitational reaction. Younger players can effectively ‘slice’ their way into this intriguing, interactive puzzle, while more experienced fans of physics-based challenges should get a good workout with this groovy brain-teaser. Happy slicing!
