Would you please help a cute, gooey slime ball to activate and reach an exit portal? Sling is a tricky, physics-based platformer and game of skill where you control the acrobatic movement of an elastic, ‘sling-able’ green slime ball. In each of the 50 increasingly-challenging levels, you must fling this friendly slime ball character (called Sling) to multiple ‘ledge grabs’ in order to open a ‘Vortex’ which you can then escape from! However, many of the ‘grabs’ are in awkward to reach places, and are obscured or blocked by obstacles.
Skills / strategy required: This challenging, interactive, multilevel skill game requires good hand-eye coordination, analytical thinking skills combined with keen problem solving determination, lots of trial and error as well as the ability to judge angles and trajectory (The curve or path followed by a flying projectile or by any object moving under the action of some force).
‘Slinging’ the green slime ball accurately can be a tricky task but the action here is very similar to the firing of cannons or archery shooting in many online aiming & accuracy-based games. A good strategy is to first plan out your route around the level – Then pinpoint the ‘grabs’ you want to reach first, and sling away!
Dodge mines in an underwater-like environment! RotaZion is a tricky, dodging and weaving-based skill and survival game where you must safely guide a rotating bubble cluster through a side-scrolling, obstacle course filled with spiky mines. Choose from two distinct difficulty levels (Easy and Hard), and try to keep your bubble cluster out of harm's way for as long as possible with deft evasive moves. However, the unusual rotating movement of your cluster makes avoiding mines a tricky proposition!
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!
Exercise and test your steady hand, coordination skills and calmness under pressure in this highly-challenging, side-scrolling wire loop-style buzzer game! Red Wire is an extremely-tricky, mouse control-based skill game where you must carefully and deftly guide a gold ring around an electrified red wire – ensuring that the ring doesn’t come into contact with of any part of the "buzz" wire. Similar in concept to classic, hand-held wire loop games, this deft, online skill-based activity features 20 incredibly challenging levels.
Skills required: You must exhibit a very high level of hand-eye coordination skills, subtle wrist & finger actions, sharp reflexes, and peak concentration. A very steady hand is the key to your progression, but you must also be patient, and willing to learn from your mistakes. Take your time – especially in early levels when you are getting used to the controls.
A fun hand-eye coordination skills, reactions and direction control-based game for young kids: Meet Ratman Ralph, a cheeky little critter who loves cheese, and is on a food run. However, it is all not straight-forward for Ralph because many people just don't like rats, and try to poison poor Ralph! Your task is to carefully guide Ralph around the game screen so that he eats only cheese, and avoids any drops of poison. Right, easy cheesy then!
Similar in concept to the iconic, mobile device game phenomenon ‘Snake’, Ratman Ralph is a challenging, reactions-based skill game played in a confined, rectangular grid area. Your task is to help Ralph to gobble the yellow cheese pieces while avoiding any sneaky, green deposits of poison! The catch is that each time Ralph scoffs a piece of cheese, a new glob of poison appears – making the game area quite dangerous after a while! Dodge and weave around the poison, and eat as much cheese as possible!
Skills / strategy required: Very fast reflexes, sharp hand eye coordination skills, and nifty keyboard control are really important here as you try to carefully maneuver Ralph around the increasingly-dangerous play area. Good concentration and observation skills are key as you try to wiggle your way through narrow paths between lumps of poison toward the tempting pieces of cheese. A good strategy is the ‘stop-start’ approach – Don't allow Ralph to be continuously on the move without pausing! Stop him every few seconds to evaluate the scene. Happy cheese munching Ralph!
Play a challenging, endless running / flying-style game of momentum where you must stay airborne and survive for as long as possible on an intense flight through an enchanted forest. Pixle is a fun and atmospheric flying game and reaction-based skill game where you must keep the enigmatic, little ‘Pixle’ character flying through the air for as long as possible by collecting energy beads, and avoiding obstacles. Pixle begins the flight as a shapeless blob, and one of your tasks is to collect ‘combo’ balls in order to transform the little guy into a majestic character of shade.
Skills required: In this tricky, side-scrolling, survival arcade game, fast reactions must be combined with good focus and concentration skills as you try to survive and prolong the action for as long as you can. Important decision-making skills come into play from the very beginning; you must decide whether to use your computer mouse or keyboard to control Pixle's movement.
Miniclip Tetris is a fun and highly-customizable online version of the iconic building block game and popular brainteaser puzzle. Here, in default mode, instead of beginning the game with an empty grid, some of the tower has already been constructed – albeit poorly – and it's up to you to get it back on track! As ever with Tetris games, you must carefully maneuver the descending blocks in order to create solid, horizontal rows that are eliminated from the game screen. Miniclip Tetris also gives you the opportunity to customize your game experience (speed, difficulty and block shape) via the Options icon.
Skills / strategy required: Tetris has remained a really popular arcade game for more than 30 years because it tests and exercises a wide range of physical and mental skills including reaction speed, finger dexterity, your observation skills, concentration, analytical thinking and creative engineering skills, problem-solving determination, and more. Try to avoid the strategy of ‘waiting’ for advantageous blocks – Make use of each falling block available to you as best as you can!
Kaboom is a light-hearted, mouse control, reactions-based skill game for kids, and is based on a simple concept that becomes very tricky to handle! In Kaboom, you control a fast-moving trampoline with your computer mouse, and must safely guide (bounce) falling black bombs out of the play area - while avoiding any red bombs entirely!. Utilizing speedy mouse movement and skill, you play the role of ‘chief bomb disposal expert’, and must react really quickly to chaperone the black-colored bombs away from the danger zone.
Skills required: This fast-paced, survival-based action game requires sharp observation skills, really good hand-eye coordination, peak concentration, quick reflexes, and expert timing to catch the falling black bombs while dodging the red ones. Multitasking (juggling) skills are also very important, especially in later levels when there are multiple bombs in play simultaneously!
Global Player is a fast-paced, reaction time challenge, and logistics and package-sorting visual puzzle game (played with mouse only) where you must carefully manage a large conveyor belt of packages in each level, and ensure that each color-coded crate reaches the correct distribution vehicle. You play the role of Logistics / Supply Chain Manager at a large cargo distribution center, and must quickly and repeatedly change the direction of arrows (switches) on increasingly-complex systems of conveyor belts in order to direct packages to their corresponding planes, trucks, and ships.
Skills required: In this high-intensity, point-and-click, reactions-based skill game, sharp observation skills must be combined with fast brain work, reflexes and hand-eye coordination in order to create an environment where packages are delivered smoothly and quickly to the correct mode of transport (The clock is ticking in each level!). Color coordination skills also play a main role – Each colored package must be moved to its corresponding colored vehicle station. Focus, concentration, great discipline and being ready for fast-approaching tasks are required skills of any good manager and operator.
Alien Transporter is a challenging, spaceship flying and taxi driving-based skill game (for one or two players) where you play the role of an outer space cab driver serving a bunch of friendly green alien customers. Using deft keyboard control skills in each level, you must carefully transport the aliens to their desired destinations in an outer space town (ensuring to avoid any unnecessary collisions with obstacles along the way), and then direct your rocket-powered transport spacecraft to an Exit Portal. Collect coins along your routes, and be really careful not to run out of fuel! If you accidentally incur too much collision damage, your transporter explodes!
Skills required: In this fun, tricky, movement-based arcade game, good hand-eye coordination skills are essential as you try to safely maneuver your alien transport spaceship through each confined level. As with driving any vehicle in real-life, practice makes perfect as you exhibit delicate, nimble finger work throughout your taxi journeys. Multitasking skills are important in later levels when two spaceships operate simultaneously.
The Time is Broken is a fun and quirky, platform-based action adventure game where you must collect 24 clocks in each level while simultaneously avoiding clones of your own jumping character (a professor)! 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!
Gravity is a highly-challenging, space flying skill and physics-based game where you must use nimble dexterity skills to perform tricky spaceship piloting maneuvers and tasks in each level. Using a combination of the thruster movement of your spacecraft and the planet's gravitational pull, you must take off and guide your spaceship to land safely on narrow podiums, collect fuel cells, avoid giant space aliens, and more on this fun and intense quest to help save the planet Generica.
Skills required for this tricky arcade game: This challenge requires deft keyboard control, good timing, fast reactions, patience, and the essential willingness to learn from your mistakes. Your ‘lander’ spacecraft moves in a very unusual, gravity-affected manner, and you must show that you are able to adapt to the changing environment in each level if you are determined to succeed.
Fishing the Sea is a straight-forward, mouse control-based skill game for kids where you must cast your fishing rod from your boat into the deep sea, and carefully catch fish to hit special fish quota targets (against the clock)! You play the role of the captain of a fishing vessel, and must supervise the delicate, subtle task of extracting the surprisingly speedy fish from the water, and up into your boat.
Skills / strategy required in this catchy online arcade game: As with fishing in real life, a very steady hand, high concentration level, and great patience are all really important for success. Trial and error also comes into play – you won't hook a fish with each attempt, so try to be as patient as possible while keeping one eye on the clock!
Flower Power is a classic-style, match 3 or more bubble shooter game where you must create and eliminate matching groups of identical, adjacent flowers by firing additional flowers into a descending, confined game grid. With the clock constantly ticking down, and the flowers inching toward the bottom of the play area, you only have a limited time to completely clear the grid of flowers with your arrow key controls.
Reasons to play this fun, high-intensity, aiming & accuracy-based skill game: Bring your sharp observation skills, concentration, hand-eye coordination and fine motor (finger dexterity) skills to the fore as you attempt to create and eliminate as many matches of 3 or more as possible with accurate shots. Exercise your fast reaction skills as you quickly change direction and maneuver your flower cannon depending on the ever-changing grid environment.
Strikey's Revenge is a challenging, "street golf"-themed, physics-based puzzle game where you must shoot a golf ball into a waste basket in a series of 18 progressively-difficult, obstacle-filled levels (which play like a wacky game of mini golf combined with the intricate science of power, angle, and trajectory!). You play the role of Strikey, a fiery golfing prodigy, and must use his incredible skills and aiming devices to figure out the best way to engineer a solution that deflects the ball into the urban waste basket (bin) in each tricky level.
Skills required in this multilevel golf, aiming and accuracy game: Creative engineering and analytical thinking skills are very important in this environment – There are multiple ways to get the ball into the basket depending on the angle and power used in your shots. Trial and error is also part of a smart strategy as you test out how the ball reacts against the various obstacles and unusual objects in each level. Good observation skills, a steady hand, a cool head under pressure, and expert mouse control all play a part in your chances of success.

When you become comfortable with the controls, don't be afraid to throw in a few spectacular stunts to claw back extra time and earn bonus points!
