Flight is a straight-forward, easy to play, fun flight control game with plenty of upgrades and achievements to enjoy. The aim of this game is to throw a paper plane as far as you can, to complete 6 different levels, and travel 1000 meters (or yards) with least amount of “throws” on each level, while collecting as many achievements as possiblel, and upgrading your paper plane at the same time. You will throw your plane across various landscapes – flying over different cities, countries and continents. Ready to travel the world by paper plane? Good, just make sure you dont 'fold' under the pressure!

How to Play: Pick the plane up with your left mouse click. Then throw it to the right side of the screen holding the mouse button and dragging the mouse itself, and release it. You will need to have good control over your mouse and wrist in order to throw the plane a good distance. It takes practice! To start, choose to play a New Game or Load Game (where you can continue where you left off on a game). Click on ‘Customize’ to customize your plane (change color and texture). Track your progress at the top of the game screen. 

Upgrade your plane, its power and control by buying various upgrades from the chart. You can upgrade to a lighter model, buy extra throwing power and create a more aerodynamic model, reduce the fuel consumption by 10% or more, resist negative wind effects, and collect cranes and windmills. For example, you can buy an add on, such as a fire engine and then throw your plane, and push Spacebar to activate the fire engine to fly even further. Upgrades are not limited – you can buy a lighter model once, then make it even lighter (but that costs several times more), add more power, and again add even more power (but again at a higher cost).

The cash you collect along your flight path is shown at the bottom of the game screen. There are also various achievements for you to gain, such as collecting 30 space starts in a single flight, flying over a country in 15 days or less, collecting $500 in a single flight etc. Collecting stars will earn you cash. Collecting cranes will give you a bonus multiplier to all the cash you collect for a couple of seconds. Windmills will give your paper plane a last minute boost.

Hanger 2 is a skill-based simulation game for older kids, teens and grownups where you have to swing your way through each world and try to finish every level without losing arms, legs or other body parts. This fun-tastic action adventure game requires expert precision swinging skills, quick nimble fingers and a healthy desire not to get smashed to bits! Swinging from a rope has never been so entertaining! Have a blast! Show us your hanging ability!

OK, let’s swing into action! Your goal is to swing (like Tarzan) from the left to the right of the game screen without hitting yourself off any rocks or buildings (above and below) or dropping off the screen. When you swing, touch the shiny stars to earn points. Every time you hit the rocks, you may lose body parts or hurt yourself badly. Ouch!! If you are badly injured, it’s game over - you're Toast! Hanger 2 is the sequel to the popular Ragdoll game. There are 23 levels to swing your way through. At the end of each level, you see your Score, amount of Body Parts lost, amount of Stars collected and the amount of Ropes you used. Good luck Raggedy Rope Swinger!

Happy Builder is a challenging crane driving game for kids. Do you believe that you have the unique skills to do the job of a crane operator or do you fancy yourself as a civil engineer in your future career? In this Happy Builder game, you are in the "Builder of the Year" competition! As on every construction site, you should first become familiar with what you are going to build and only then should you start building. 

It is all about the order when you are building something or you‘ll find yourself wasting time and energy. You cannot start from the roof before you have the walls. When picking up a block (a part of the structure), it must be picked up in such a way that it will be suitable to put in its place correctly. For example: You cannot put a dog's house sideways so it must be picked up the way it can be put bottom down first.

You have to consider the laws of physics (Earth gravity) too; A piece of structure that has no support on one side is simply going to fall or tumble down. Each piece must be carefully put in its place. Once it is in the correct position, a clock icon will appear indicating that the piece is in the right place and points will be counted (based on the speed you have put it in place). Once the clock finished turning, the piece of structure is „cemented in“ and cannot be moved. Only the correct blocks can be "cemented in“, as any other will stay loose if put in the incorrect position. Do not forget that the parts must be „pulled in“ one by one and cannot be put "through“ the others.

For example: You are building a wall with the doors. If the wall is built around the doors (the left and right side as well as the lintel above the doors ), you cannot put the doors in anymore as every possible direction is "blocked“. If that is the case, you have to start the construction of that site from scratch. To do so – click on „R“ button located at the top right corner and start building again. Once you have finished building one structure, you can proceed to the next one (which is more complex). A map is displayed and you can choose a new construction site by clicking on one of the orange cones. You can choose only the orange striped cones as grey ones are locked. They become unlocked as you gain experience and build more sites.

Structure pieces are brought by a conveyor on the right side. To pick up a structure piece, use your computer mouse to control the crane hook. Move it to the piece at the exact point where you wish to hook it up. Left Click and hold your mouse left button and start moving it with your mouse into the position it should be placed. Once in place, release the left mouse button and the piece is released. As in reality, every block has inertia – if you move it around very quickly and then stop suddenly, it will spin around on your crane hook.

In Crush The Castle 2 (a medieval & physics-based game for teens), the Redvonian King has sent you, his trusty Siege Master, and Halgrim his finest mason, to bring together all of the greatest minds in the land to destroy Blutias’s Empire. Go forth, crush all of the castles of Blutias using the most powerful Trebuchet and ammunition. Start to play by clicking on New Game or People’s Empire (crush the castles built by other players). You can also build a castle on your own, by clicking on Castle Builder. The amount of Inhabitants eliminated, and your armor are shown at the bottom of the game screen, whereas your shots taken can be seen at the top of the game screen.

The further you get, the more new ammunition is offered to you by Halgrim and other clever people, such as Cormyn, the devlish engineer or Mauryl the Great, a hermit wizard. To choose which weapon to use, simply click on of the arrows located by the ammunition icon, and choose your weapon. The number of shots used is unlimited but if you crush a castle in one shot, you earn a Gold medal. Good luck!

It’s time to swing into action, just like a stunning acrobatic superhero! Hanger is an addicting skill game for teens and grown-ups (but not for the squeamish) where you have to skillfully swing through each level on adjustable ropes (similar in motion to Spiderman or Tarzan!) Keep swinging from rope-to-rope to gain momentum through each side-scrolling level. Avoid crashing off the walls and ledges of each obstacle course as this causes your stick-man to smash and lose some of his body parts (with some heavy blood loss simulation to stress that this is not good). Try to keep your ragdoll-style swinging character as intact as you can until you reach the finishing line.

Very good timing skills and hand-eye coordination are the keys to success, as you have to carefully choose the correct moment to swing from one rope to the next. Carefully swinging through gaps, and over obstacles, becomes increasingly tricky as you progress. You have to master the physics and movement of your adjustable ropes as quickly as possible, otherwise you could lose control and smash off the rock wall – ouch! The action simply follows the law of gravity, so try your best to keep your Swinging Stickman in the air until you reach the end of each level. The retro-style gameplay should be ideal for fans of classic skill games. Get ready for a true test of your quick reactions as you try to swing your way into the record books. Good luck!

Tilt Maze is a fun and challenging maze-puzzle game for children and Grown Ups with a very simple rule. In fact there is only one rule, “The Tilt Rule”. Imagine that the red ball (circle) on your game screen is a marble resting horizontally on a maze board or tray. The 4 Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard allow you to tilt (and balance) the maze board – Up, Down, Left and Right. By leaning the maze board in one direction, the red ball moves with gravity in that direction – simple physics!

The red ball can only move one way at a time, so you’ve got to use your powers of deduction to work out the best sequence of moves to get the imaginary red marble to the target Blue Square. The fascinating thing about this game is that it seems really easy… but still, sometimes, you just can’t see the solution. At least, not straight away.

Squaretron is a highly addicting skill-based arcade game for kids & grownups to help train your predictive thinking and concentration skills. As a fun hand-eye coordination exercise, Squaretron will actively test your patience and endurance levels. You earn points for catching Sky-Blue ally squares, and you lose lives for touching the Red moving squares. Squaretron is not about speed or chaotic movements. There is no need for quick movements to stay in the game – it is enough to deftly move around, and plan your moves ahead just as in chess or checkers.

Do not concentrate on one small area, and do not target one piece on the screen. See the whole picture and move your white square around the unfriendly Red squares while collecting sky Blue ones on your way. The strategy you should follow in order to beat this game is to make orderly moves in the middle of the disorder and chaos. You have only three lives to begin but have a chance to earn more during the game.

There are additional types of squares flying around; Some are beneficial while others are just going to cause trouble. You have to be careful when collecting these "Power Ups" or "Power Downs", and choose wisely which ones to collect and which ones to let go. As you keep catching the Blue squares, your bonus bar keeps growing. Once you fill it completely, you receive a bonus at the end of the level. As you progress through the levels, the intensity of the game grows – the squares fly around faster, the Blue squares move very close to the Red ones, and the number of squares increases (making your task harder and harder). Good Luck!

Cannon Venture is a fun physics & skill-based cannon shooting game and challenging online problem-solving puzzler where you have to pop helium-filled balloons with the assistance of accurate shots from a powerful cannon.

Plenty of trial and error and patience should bring you a long way (There are 30 levels to conquer!). So, let’s get balloon popping!

Endless Migration is a unique and entertaining skill and mouse-based simulation game for kids and teens. You play the role of a lone goose who has to reunite with his flock of geese, and then guide them safely through some horrendous weather conditions, avoiding airplanes, and other obstacles along the way.

Do you have what is takes Great Goose? Glory is just a few wing flaps away! Good luck!

OK, your flock has gotten lost and scattered, and it’s up to you to reunite them and save the day! You are the black goose - the flock leader. The grey geese are strays. You can join with these to grow your flock. Once the grey geese are in the flock, they will try to follow you in a “V” formation. Try and pick up as many grey geese as possible.

Important! Once the flock leader is eliminated, one of the grey geese will take over as leader; So, the more geese you have in your flock, the more lives you have! When there is no flock left, it’s game over. White swans are beautiful creatures but they can be harder to protect as they move slower than the geese. If you join with swans, you earn more points over time. Avoid all types of aircraft! Birds and plane propellers don’t mix! Storms, clouds and hurricanes will affect your flying abilities and slow your speed. Again, avoid!

So, a full flock consists of 16 geese. If you manage to get this number of followers, you will go into Golden Goose Bonus Mode. All of the other geese will then fly towards your flock and you will get a huge Bonus. If you score 10,000 points, you earn an “Upgrade Point” which you can then use to upgrade your flock. Time for take off! Ready for some high-flying action-packed fun in the skies?

Galleon Fight is an easy-to-play cannon shooting game for kids where you have to destroy all of the enemy ships in an open-sea battle in order to stop a full-on invasion of your country. You are the commander of the last surviving ship. Once you destroy all of the ships, you complete the level as a hero. This is a super-simple and lots-of-fun skill game. Enjoy Admiral!

How to Play: OK, your aim is to blast all of the enemy ships out of the water, and also try and shoot the floating treasure chests to earn extra virtual money ($100 dollars!).

On some levels, you can see the bow of the first enemy ship. On other levels, you can’t see the enemy at all - so your first attempt will be a blind shot.

You simply have to guess where the enemy ships are located. Once you take your first shot, the game screen pans over, and you can see where all of the enemy ships are located. You and the enemy now take turns firing at each other. To pass each level, you need to eliminate all of the enemy ships. If you fail to sink all the enemy ships, you can keep repeating the level until you succeed! After each level, you can use the money you earned for upgrades.

OK, ready for some fun and feisty cannon blasting action? Use your computer mouse to aim your cannon – Left Click on it – hold to set the cannon power – and then release to fire. You can see your Health Bar and the Level you are on at the top of the playing area. Your opponent’s health bar is displayed above his ship. Let the battle commence!

Tip: Note the angle and power of each shot you make. If you hit a ship, use the same angle and power over and over again until that ship is destroyed. Good luck Skipper!

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.

Accurate Slapshot is an addicting mouse-clicking, physics & skill-based game that plays a lot like mini-golf. Here, you have to strike an ice hockey-like puck into a goal by predicting the way it will bounce and react off various obstacles. In each increasingly difficult level, you must shoot the puck using a hockey stick, and hope it goes into the goal to progress. You score points for scoring in as few shots as possible.

This fun online sports activity will really test your prediction skills, as you have to guess which way the puck is going to react off the different objects. There is no room for error- only a perfect shot will succeed. There is certainly a lot of potential trial and error required, so you’ll need to be extremely patient. You’ll also need to make quick decisions under pressure, as the more shots you take, the fewer points you earn. Even hockey legends would struggle to score in this tricky, obstacle course-style challenge! Can you negotiate the puck around the angles and into the net? Are your hockey skills red-hot today? Let’s see then what you can do Angle Master!
