As usual, Santa is in a hurry, so your chimney passage construction needs to be complete as soon as his reindeer land on the roof in each level.
This highly-stimulating and innovative brain teaser game requires very quick and decisive thinking (you have less than 90 seconds to construct your passageway each time). You have to make snap decisions regarding where each piece of your passageway should be placed (each ‘pipeline-style’ block is normally different in design from the next).

It’s really up to you to save Christmas for these kids and Santa!

Here, you have to drag, rotate, and launch explosive rocket missiles at awkwardly-positioned planets in a series of tricky levels. Your rockets must be fired from a designated, outlined area, and you have to hit at least one planet with a projectile in order to progress. You might even have to launch simultaneous rockets in different directions, so be prepared for a challenge that is truly ‘out of this world’.
This fun and innovative rocket launching game requires a good deal of logical thinking and precision. Engineering a solution to each level requires the ability to foresee the resultant reaction of your propelled missile, so a good understanding of angles and trajectory is key. You never know too; Maybe one day NASA will come calling at your door! Until then, enjoy this cool problem-solving brain teaser!
Are you looking for an original brain teaser puzzle where you have to apply logic and good strategic planning to an everyday situation? If so, we’ve got just the cheesy treat for you!

Your job is to eliminate pesky rats from each level by strategically positioning various types of cheeses in order to repel or attract the little rodents into a water chamber below. You play the role of the professional exterminator, and have to persuade the hungry rats to move from their initial stationery positions using the smell of either their favorite yellow cheese (attract), or the smell of a spoiled green cheese (repel). The catch is that you only have a certain number of cheese pieces to work with, and each level features a challenging set of platforms and ledges from which you have to coax the rats down (the job gets surprisingly difficult in later levels!).
Although contentious, it has been estimated that there are up to five billion rats worldwide. Do you have skills and determination to engineer a solution in each level to help keep these pest numbers under control? Ok then Verminator, it’s time to face up to your toughest task yet!

This highly interactive ‘science fiction adventure’ game features a first-person viewpoint, which gives a cool yet perhaps slightly-scary authenticity to the whole atmosphere… Many questions spring to mind, such as: Where am I? What am I doing here? You must use your sleuthing skills to keep on probing, clicking and examining items that you discover in order to find out!
Fans of stimulating brain teasers and virtual detective games should enjoy this unusual mouse-clicking puzzle. With very few clues or tutorials to help you, players have to think clearly, logically, and rationally in order to progress.

Let’s see how far your pipeline building skills can take you!
Kamikaze Blocks is an addicting and challenging physics-based shooting game for kids & teens where you have to topple colored blocks off of midair platforms by firing explosive lizard creatures at them! Hungry cloud monsters lurk just underneath these platforms, and your job is to feed these beasts by blasting delicious blocks down into the abyss below. Needless to say, the blocks are stacked in awkward formations, meaning your kamikaze lizard missiles have to be supremely accurate in order to dislodge them from the platform. While shooting these unorthodox missiles is the key component of the game, some later levels have a distinct brain-teaser puzzle element as you carefully figure out the correct areas to target.
An all-out ‘gung-ho’ strategy won’t get the job done in this fun, skill-based, missile-firing activity. To be a successful kamikaze shooter, you need to be more subtle and precise with your efforts. A simple understanding of the effects of gravity is helpful as you try to figure out the best way to rid the game screen of those pesky blocks. Quick reactions and accurate mouse-clicking skills are important as you may need to fire off two or three lizards in quick succession. Good planning and tactical target shooting skills (just as in pool, billiard or bowling) are key; as you have to carefully target specific blocks and points in later levels. Happy block blasting!
Alphabet Shoot is a straight-forward yet challenging, physics-based cannon shooting-style game where you have to fire lettered blocks (missiles) at and eliminate designated targets (further lettered blocks) from each level. For example, you have to accurately fire an F missile in order to eliminate a target F block from the game screen. Blast away wooden obstacles, create useful bridges, and clear narrow pathways for your devastating projectiles in a clinical exhibition of cannon shooting at close quarters. Each level takes place in a confined space, so even the slightest misfire can result in disaster!
This online missile-firing activity isn’t all about big guns and explosive action, you also have to carefully and strategically work your way through some tricky problem solving puzzles along the way. Needless to say, accuracy is the key to success here, while later levels also place a premium on quick reactions and good decision making. Ok Sharp Shooter, it’s time to focus your mind, steady your aim, and fire! But can you engineer a solution to each level?
Nodes 2 is a very challenging online puzzle game (and sequel to the equally-brilliant original ‘Nodes’) for middle school and high school age kids where you have to arrange sets of laser-emitting ‘Nodes’ so that the zigzagging beams run through each randomly-positioned Black Circle. Playing against the clock, your objective is to click and drag the movable Nodes so to create a complex, crisscrossing laser beam pathway that totally envelopes each of the awkwardly-placed Black Circles. And if things weren’t tricky enough, you also have to contend with the suspense and pressure of a ticking time bomb that is certain to go off if you do not complete each level as quickly as you possibly can! Yikes!
This highly innovative and often very difficult brain teaser requires good analytical skills, a love of strategic planning, good time management, and the evasive ability of remaining cool under immense pressure. Skilled problem solvers should be able to carefully analyze each level, and figure out a logical solution where all of your laser beams cover all of the bases! Unlike the first version of the game, here you have to work with curved lasers, beam-reflecting mirrors, and an ominous clock that constantly reminds you of the tricky task at hand. Experienced players and talented game designers can test their own game creating skills in ‘Level Editor’ mode.
Say “yes” to Nodes - a very challenging and innovative brain teaser puzzle game for older kids, teens, and grown-ups. Your goal in each level is to line up the laser-emitting ‘Nodes’ so that their beams run through every one of the randomly-positioned Blue circles. Drag, and stretch the Nodes all over the game screen in order to create a crisscrossing laser-beam pathway that intersects each one of the Blue circles. The catch is that you only have a set number of Nodes in each level, and that the Blue circles are often in awkward, non-linear locations.
This really tricky and refreshingly original head-scratcher of a puzzle should prove an ideal online activity for those who enjoy exercising their brain power on a good problem solving challenge. Strategic planning ability is vitally important; being able to coldly analyze the grid to see ‘the bigger picture’ is a key skill required here. Trial and error is definitely the path to success as you try out various different intersecting combinations, make minor changes in the angle of your Nodes, and carefully figure out the best way to overlap all of the circles with Red laser beams. Hopefully, you can criss-cross your way through all 20 levels! Enjoy the zigzagging laser beam action!
The chills of winter have swooped down on an unsuspecting group of drivers, and the village car park needs a heroic problem-solving snow-plow truck driver to bail them out of a big snowy jam!

OK, it’s time to start laying the building blocks of your legacy as an absolute match game legend! Happy puzzle cracking!
