Very Good Platform Game to Play Online - The Onomastica

Rating: 8.2/10 - 225 votes

The Onomastica is a very interesting platform adventure running game with a cool, linguistics twist. Playing the role of an acrobatic running and jumping character, you must leap across platforms and ledges made up of different words and letters. These interchangeable block words and letter fragments can be pushed together and manipulated to form new words which alter the game environment in a really clever way. For example – you might have to push the letters E-R toward the end of L-A-D-D – and suddenly, the completed word transforms into a LADDER that you can climb to get to the next ledge!

Reasons to play this challenging thinking game: Fans of quirky, alternative, highly interactive and thought-provoking puzzle games and brain teasers are in for a treat! Exercise your logical and analytical thinking skills, problem solving stamina levels, and your vocabulary range as you attempt to create solutions with the available letters. Stimulate your observation and reaction skills too - Amid the fun word-play, you still have to run and jump tactfully and accurately.

Best strategy to win: You need to tap into your ability to ‘think outside of the box’, and rely on your puzzle-busting determination to go deep into this creative and difficult Flash-based game. Sharp keyboard skills are also important as you attempt to join separate words and letter groupings together! Enjoy the fun word-play action!

Educational note: The name of the game ‘Onomastica’, comes from the Greek term ‘onomastics’ which is a branch of linguistic study that focuses on names and people.

How to Play: For notebook, laptop and PC / Mac (with certain browsers), this is a ‘one-level’ challenge which begins as soon as the game loads up. You control the blue, filled-out stickman character perched on top of the word ‘Onomastica’ when the game begins. Use the Arrow Keys or the WASD Keys on your computer keyboard to control the character's movement.

Your job is simply to travel as far as you can into the game. To do this, you must solve mini word puzzles by pushing letters together to create new words and phrases that help you along. Lean your character up against the side of a letter grouping to see if it can be pushed along. Also, if a letter is red, you can jump on top of it to erase it from the game screen.

For example, let's say that you come up against an immovable wall. Next to this are the words ROCK and LETS – but the L and S in LETS are colored red. Jump on the L and S letters to erase them, leaving ROCK and ET. Then, push the ET next to the ROCK to make ROCKET, and jump on top of this newly-created word to be rocketed up into the sky and over the immovable obstacle! When stuck on a difficult part, ask you best friends or family members to add their considerable thinking skills toward solving the mini-puzzle and progressing.
