You may already have tried your hand at online games where you play the role of a restaurant manager, garage or farm owner, real estate developer, and more. Now, it's time to turn your attention to the running of one of the most eye-catching and enjoyable attractions for children and adults alike! Being in charge of a large organization or business enterprise brings with it great responsibility… But throw a bunch of exotic animals and very fussy customers into the mix, and you’ve got yourself an elephant-sized challenge! Zoo Builder is an awesome management simulation and construction game where you have to design, build, and supervise a busy city zoo. In this fun business strategy and customer service activity, your important job is to harness the zoo's potential, and turn it into a (virtual) profit making tourist attraction!
The position of Manager or Director can be very challenging in any environment – even in an online flash game. Here, you must build your zoo from the ground upward in each level, hit various financial and structural targets, and give your expectant customers the best experience in town. This highly interactive and addicting tycoon-style challenge requires strong good decision making skills, multi-tasking skills, quick reactions, and an ability to see the ‘Big Picture’ and adapt with a changing marketplace are all extremely important attributes for any would-be zoo manager. You really must be on top of any potential weak points in your business. For example, if the monkey enclosure is just too small, build an extension to house more customers. Both tycoon game newbies and experienced business whiz gamers alike can enjoy the exciting action here. Ok, it's time to quit the ‘monkeying around’, you’ve got a successful zoo to run! Happy management!
Groundbreaking adventurers mostly do not set out on pioneering voyages for monetary gain or fame. They do so, for example, because of their immense desire to find new knowledge and things, or their unrelenting passion to succeed, or the pressure of having very high standards of self-achievement, or their earnest enthusiasm to simply feel the adrenaline "buzz". Any income generated from a success is normally wholeheartedly re-invested into the next great attempt to explore unknown territory. Now, here is your perhaps once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to team up with and assist a truly unique adventurer - Peter the emperor penguin.
Learn To Fly is a highly entertaining, upgrade-based skill game where you have to slowly and methodically build a flying contraption with Peter in order to launch this inspirational little penguin through the air to travel as far as he can go! Peter is a doggedly-determined young penguin with a real taste for the spectacular. A native of Antarctica, Peter recently discovered the web, and used the search engine ‘Giggle’ to find out a bit more about his particular species, and was quite dismayed to find himself and his family described as a ‘flightless bird’. “Flightless?” thought Peter… “I’ll show 'em!” Beginning his quest by humbly jumping off of the end of an icy ramp, you have to painstakingly help Peter to amass sufficient funds and awesome flying equipment so he can truly soar through the air to great distances, and put paid to all this ‘flightless bird’ nonsense, once and for all!
Peter then plans to upload quality video footage of his pioneering flight adventures and achievements to Pentube as proof to scientists, and to educate mankind around the world of the amazing intelligence, bravery and ability of the snobbishly-underestimated penguin species, and also to inspire future generations of penguins to strive to achieve even greater flight distances in the decades ahead.
This amusing ‘launch’ game provides a truly addicting and eccentric experience as you meticulously add to Peter’s flight capabilities in a suspense-filled, step-by-step manner. Combine awesome gliding mechanisms, rocket-fuelled propellers, and more specialized aeronautical equipment in order to turn this penguin from flightless flounderer into an undisputed Flight King among all recorded species! Great patience and determination are very important attributes here – Rome wasn’t built in a day; and Peter’s flying apparatus requires careful construction and thoughtful additions as you progress. Your decision making skills are called into play as you decide which strategy to take – to simply go for raw speed, for example, or to put your faith in a more subtle, gliding ‘hang time’ flight plan? Ok Penguin Launcher, the sky is literally the limit! Enjoy!
Drivers Ed is a fun and interacting driver education simulation game for little kids to start learning and for big kids to practise their driving. However, note that the information contained within the game should not be used as a guide for driving. It should be used for entertainment purposes only. Try the practice lessons or go straight to your driving test. You can change your chosen instructor at the game menu section. Safe driving!
How to Play: First, choose your driving instructor (Jessica, Mr. Bumper, The Boss Lady or Johny). Use the arrow keys on your computer keyboard as your steering wheel to move your car around. The 'Up' arrow key moves your car forward, the 'Down' key moves your car in reverse. The 'Spacebar' key is your brakes. The letter 'M' on the game screen indicates the main menu section and you can always look for help on the '?' section of the screen.
FWG Bridge 2 is a brain-teaser simulation game which develops your logical thinking skills and guarantees lots of fun at the same time. This is a challenging version of the bridge builder game with more levels to get through. Build a bridge in the blueprint game screen to help the creatures cross the chasm. Click on an anchor point to create a new bridge piece. Bridge pieces placed along the green line are the pieces the creatures can walk on, and the other pieces are there to support the structure. (Tip: Triangle-shaped structures make the strongest bridges!) You can select from two types of materials to build your bridge (wood and metal). Remember that wood is cheap, but very weak, and metal is expensive, but much stronger. Therefore, it is better to use a mix of materials. However, it is up to you to decide how to allocate your funds. It is a huge challenge getting the structure right, but once your bridge is built correctly, you will be happy to see the strange creatures crossing the bridge that you built with your own hands. Have fun and good luck Builder!
Ultimate Chopper is a challenging helicopter-flying simulation game where you experience the same high levels of skill and technique required of helicopter pilots. Practice or demonstrate your computer mouse skills when guiding the helicopter in its flights through the dangerous play zone.

Good luck trying in this fast-paced and addicting game. Have a safe and enjoyable flight!

Press 'Spacebar' to fire and shoot at obstacles. At the end of each level, you have to fly to the red flag and land (or at least touch it) by it in order to complete the level.
FWG Bridge: In this fun and addicting bridge-building game, you need to build a strong bridge across a canyon so that the little creatures can cross it. You have an allocated budget given, which is counted in the bottom left corner of the game screen. You build the bridge on a blue mode screen. Once you complete the bridge, strange little creatures will try to cross it, and will test it for you in full. This strategic game provides a fun opportunity for you to improve your physics skills. Note that it is a huge challenge getting the bridge structure right. The difficulty level increases significantly as you progress from levels 1 to 3 (Tip: The pieces of bricks or metal should be connected only from one anchor to the other. Do not connect a supporting piece to the middle of some other pieces.). Good luck Bridge Builder!
