How far can you toss a coconut? Totems Awakening is a challenging coconut-throwing, skill-based puzzle game where you have to ‘awaken’ the sleeping stone head of an ancient totem statue by successfully throwing a rock at it. This is a fun physics-based game where good hand-eye coordination and observation skills, logical thinking, accurate shooting, expert timing, and slick strategy are all very important. You play the role of the coconut-wielding tribesmen, and must clear obstacles, engineer pathways, create bridges, open doors, flip switches, and more as you try to gain a clear shot at the snoozing statue. Each level is filled with wacky objects, and an often complex web of defenses stand between the initial coconut thrower and the well-protected totem’s head.
Calling all wire loop skill game enthusiasts. Test your steady hand, nerve and mouse controlling ability in this neon maze game online. Trip Wire is an intense and highly-addicting, hand-eye coordination and mouse movement game where you take on 10 increasingly difficult "wire loop" levels. Wire loop (buzz wire) games are popular motor skill-based activities where you have to slowly and carefully guide a metal loop along a snake-like length of wire – without actually touching off of the wire! If you make a mistake or let your hand slip - the loop comes into contact with the wire, and forms a closed circuit - which usually results in a loud, teeth-chattering buzzing noise! In this similar online version, you have to use your computer mouse to move a green sphere alongside various lengths of randomly-shaped neon blue wires. The catch is that you only have a limited time to reach the end of the wire!
This surprisingly-challenging and fun mouse-based game requires a very steady hand, high levels of concentration, great patience, and a cool head under pressure at all times. Even the minutest incorrect wrist movement can result in a crucial 5 second penalty (Keep in mind that time is absolutely precious here!). Players have to be confident yet cautious as they slowly inch their way along the trip wire. Taking things slowly is obviously important, but if you dawdle too long, the timer will catch up to you! Striking a balance between careful, methodical mouse movement and smartly continuing along the wire is the key to success. Have you got the steady hand, nerves and sheer determination to succeed? Will you forever be known as one of the Trip Wire Elite?
A very challenging & fun, skill-based, jumping platform game: In Pyro Jump, you must carefully guide an excitable little flame through a series of increasingly-tricky, jump-based levels. Pyro has the hots for the Paper Princess, and will literally jump through hoops to catch up with her, and set her free. Your goal is to direct the little fellow to the captured Princess in each danger-filled level using various spinning wheel platforms, slippery ledges, flame-firing cannons, and more. Controlling Pyro’s jumping motion is the key as you try to avoid flame-extinguishing spikes, trick platforms, chasms of doom, and many more troublesome obstacles.
This innovative and difficult mouse-clicking game requires good dexterity and precision timing. Pyro’s only possible move is a "jump" initiated by your mouse click, and choosing the exact moment to make a big leap is the all-important skill here. The fun cartoonish graphics, eccentric characters, whimsical soundtrack, and highly-addicting gameplay should be a good fit for kids young and old. Additionally, more accomplished players can aim for perfection by collecting all of the Bonus Flames and Time Achievements. The Question is - Have you got the hand-eye coordination, patience, determination and expert timing skills to succeed, or will your efforts simply go down in flames? OK then - it's time to turn up the heat and leap into action!
A cool game for those who enjoy a blend of skill and educational-based activities online. Axon is a highly scientific-themed, mouse-clicking arcade game where you have to continuously grow a nerve fiber (neuron) by collecting protein spheres that appear within your range, and create as long a neuron as possible. By clicking on (and effectively ‘gobbling up’) the precious protein, your own unique neuron grows higher and higher on the game screen (similar to a growing plant in fast forward motion).
Axons are real biological nerve fibre present throughout your body, and this interesting game tries to assist you in understanding more about the wonderful science behind nerves, nerve endings, and our amazing brain and nervous system. A neuron is any cell within the nervous system, and an axon is part of a neuron (kind of like that legs are part of the human body). Axons are responsible for transmitting messages to neighboring neurons, a process that is essential for physical movement and thought processes. For example, if your brain sends a message to your hand to click your mouse, that message is transmitted to your hand by axons!
But don’t worry if all of that sounds a little complicated or even boring. This highly stimulating and educational point-and-click skill game isn’t just for trainee brain surgeons! The simple and fast-paced gameplay is suitable for players from elementary school age to grownups, and could be used as a fun interactive activity for teaching neuroscience online in the classroom.
Blast Up is a different and surprisingly-addicting, physics-based skill game for kids and teens where you have to propel a soccer ball toward bowling pin targets using an explosive blast created by simply clicking your mouse. You must carefully use a combination of good observation, gravity, trajectory, rapid mouse-clicking and the contours of each level in order to successfully drive your ball in the desired directions. The target pins are often located in extremely difficult-to-reach positions, and throughout the 50 increasingly challenging levels, you can be tested by a limited blast count, timed challenges, awkwardly-positioned blocking objects, tricky door switch obstacles, and more.
This original physics platformer game should be a hit with players who enjoy problem solving puzzles mixed with a bit of interactive action, and requires good hand-eye coordination, expert timing, and great patience and determination – as some of the later levels are extremely difficult. Trial and error is an important factor here as you get to grips with the tough-to-control ball (your ball is particularly bouncy, and while this can be advantageous, it means you need to be smart in predicting the ‘bounce of the ball’). An understanding of the effects of the law of gravity on the ball is also important. You need to be sure that you are driving the ball on the correct flight path in order to hit the elusive target bowling pins. Let's have a Blast!
Maya Boom is a pinpoint physics-based skill game where you have to eliminate evil little characters from the game screen using accurately-placed explosives. You hold the coveted title of ‘Master of Destruction’, and have to strategically position your bombs in sensible, logical positions in order to blow the mini baddies off of the game screen. The catch is that you only have a limited number of bombs in each level (like par in golf), and you also have to protect any ‘good guy’ characters – ensuring that they survive your use of explosive power! You get no reward for simple, gung-ho tactics here, but you should achieve success by carefully studying the landscape, and placing bombs strategically.
This fun and addicting problem-solving brain teaser activity should be a good fit for fans of destruction games, as well as for puzzle aficionados who enjoy a good old thinking + skill-based test. Quick reactions and sharp mouse movements are also important. You may have to repeatedly plant bombs in quick succession, so make sure your nimble fingers are loose and ready to rock! Enjoy the explosive action!
Stabilize is a very straight-forward yet challenging skill-based balancing game where you have to drop a set number of randomly-shaped blocks onto a loosely-positioned scale (beam) below. Each block must be played, and you can only afford to ‘lose’ two blocks or less in each level; if more than two objects fall out of the game zone, you lose that level! You have two areas on either side of the fulcrum (the gravitational central point) from which to drop your blocks, and you need to very carefully decide when and where to make that all-important Click!
This physics-based online game could be used as a fun exercise for young children learning about balancing, scales, and the effects of gravity. Older players should also enjoy the suspense-filled action, with a constant stream of exciting ‘will it / wont it fall’ moments to get your puzzle-pulses racing! A high level of concentration, quick reactions, and an ability to think logically and make good decisions are all important skills required here. So, it’s time to ‘scale’ the new heights as part of your balancing act! Be brave, and good luck!
If you like to get your head around a good physics-based brain teaser or design game then try Impulse J5: Nights, an unusual puzzle game where you have to construct a large tower-like structure using 30 jelly-like ‘nodes’ that act as small circular building blocks. Your goal is to carefully attach these expanding nodes together in order to form as tall a structure as you possibly can. Each step in your construction forms a number of new joints (angles), but you have to be careful – your wobbly tower is bound by the laws of gravity, and will collapse if it is too heavy on one side.
This stimulating and quirky engineering and construction game requires steady mouse-work, patience, and a lot of trial and error to get familiar with the eccentric jelly-like movement of your would-be tower. Some knowledge of the effects of gravity is important (but not essential) as you try to come up with cool and creative ways of growing your construction to a record height. Ok Jelly Tower Architect – let’s reach for the stars, and build a funny looking skyscraper!
The ‘last man standing’, the "ultimo hombre", is a heroic figure in all aspects of warfare. No matter how highly the odds are stacked against him, he somehow manages to pull victory from the jaws of defeat! Now, it’s time for you to take up this bravest of mantles! One Man Siege is an action-packed, skill-based throwing game where you play the role of a sole medieval soldier who has to topple cannon-firing towers by catching and chucking cannon balls right back at the enemy! Turn defense into attack as you smartly pluck these devastating projectiles from the sky, and quickly use them to your own advantage!
This fast-paced action game is requires good observation skills and quick reactions as you carefully avoid the raining cannonballs while also eying up potential weak spots in the walls of the enemy castle. With only a strong arm as leverage to fire your weapons, your chances of victory are very much reliant on the accuracy and power of your throw. Remember to be patient in your actions, pick the right time to launch your own cannonball offensive – as the Underdog, you don’t need to go ‘gung-ho’ here. But have you got the skill, power and determination to turn your enemy’s weapons against them? Let the One Man Siege begin!
Jumper 3: Nonstop is an action-packed jumping skill game of survival where you have to keep an acrobatic Stickman in the air for as long as possible by repeatedly landing on any one of 3 moving platforms. These trampoline-style platforms float perilously above a treacherous field of mushrooms, so your Stickman’s midair movements need to be precise and accurate in order to avoid a game-ending fall! Score as many points as you can by athletically traversing over a circular center spot with each jump, and earn cool upgrades and bonuses with spectacular leaps.
Just like the title suggests, this fun and eccentric online arcade game is absolutely ‘nonstop’! From the moment your Stickman falls from the sky to the moment the game ends, you need to be supremely concentrated in order to stay airborne. Your Stickman has all the attributes of a world class gymnast, and can change direction at will in midair. These qualities mixed with your quick reactions and fast finger work should make for a powerful combination! Ok Jumping Jack (or Jill), let’s see some marvelous midair moves!
Prepare to feel the gravitational pull of one of the most challenging and interesting physics-based puzzles ever to grace the genre! Gravitex 2 is a stunning science-based skill game where you have to fire a special yellow ball into a black hole in space, avoiding the large planetary objects and square-edged obstacles placed in your way. You have to carefully calculate and judge the power and angle of your shot while also taking the gravitational pull of the large sphere-like obstacles into account. You cannot affect the path or trajectory of your yellow ball after firing it across space – so the key is to ensure your specific calculations and calibrations are "spot on" before you press the launch button!
This awesome, in-depth brain teaser with a cool ambiance and background sound features 100 amazing levels – that’s right, ONE HUNDRED! It’s a truly addicting problem solving activity that does require a little basic understanding of gravity as you have to carefully judge the correct path for your ball. Even an angle change of just one degree can dramatically alter your fortunes! Great patience, good judgment, pinpoint accuracy, and an unwavering determination and nerve are all extremely important attributes to have in your space locker here. There is plenty of trial and error required with so many levels to attempt! Ok Gravity Master, let’s put those brain skills to work!

Want to play a fun "Hit the Target" game with an unusual choice of projectile? Sheep Toss is a wacky mouse-clicking, skill-based game for kids of all ages, and is designed to put a smile on your face, and maybe an odd frown when you repeatedly miss a target. Scrappy the Sheepdog is a laid-back but innovative & eccentric character who doesn’t fancy running all over a vast 3D farm all day to round up and direct the wandering sheep from one area to another. Instead, Scrappy the Sheepdog fancies himself as a bit of an inventor and pioneer, and has invented a custom-made, sling-shot contraption from a simple elasticated hammock in order to catapult the sheep through the air into highlighted "penned" areas and farm buildings. If this works, Scrappy can launch the sheep into their pen (a fenced grazing area or farmyard barn) without breaking sweat. However, he needs your unique sheep-slinging expertise to make sure the sheep fly through the air with the correct direction and distance!
Now, we don’t want to pull the wool over your eyes and give the impression that this game is simply a breeze; Sheep tossing in fact can be a really challenging test of your accuracy and mouse-clicking skills. This highly enjoyable online target-hitting activity (that shares some parallels with golf) requires a very deft hand, good judgement, gentle patience, dogged determination, and a lot of initial trial and error as it takes a while to get your swing (or should we say "sling") just right. You also have to take any wind speed and sheep "bounciness" on landing into consideration as you try to carefully gauge the correct power, direction, and trajectory of each sheep toss. Good luck, and enjoy a good laugh with your friends and family!

Pixels are basically the building blocks of everything you see on a classic raster graphics computer game screen. In Pixmania however, your concern is a single controllable pixel in a hectic skill-based & survival activity where quick reflexes, fast reactions, and sharp observation skills are the key. The gameplay is similar in style to classic 1980’s arcade games where quick reflexes, sharp reactions, good observation skills and time management are the key. Set aside your fancy HD 3D games for another day – it’s time to take a trip into the not-too distant past and experience what video gaming was like in the early years!

Now, in cyberspace, it’s time to take this ball game to the next level! Gravitee is a fun and innovative physics & skill-based game where you play golf in an outer space environment (yet is similar in theme to mini golf). Set in a distant region of the galaxy, you have to whack a golf ball around a planet-filled area, and try to get it through a hoop-shaped ‘hole’ that is part of one of the main planets in as few shots as possible. While this may sound relatively straight-forward, here, you have to take into account the mass and gravitational pull of each planet, as well as the power of your shot.
This unusual online brain teaser activity requires some understanding of physics and how gravity works as you have to adjust the angle of each golf shot, and consider how gravity is going to affect your balls movement and destiny. This fun 1-player game requires a lot of patience and a steady hand, and takes a few shots to get the hang of (to get into your swing). It should be a good fit for young fans of games with a science-based angle, or those of you who love virtual sports games with a twist. Can your problem solving skills lead to a hole in one? Or will your golfing ability simply drift into space? It's time to focus on the mission at hand Captain!
