Linear Problem Solving
"The shortest distance from A to B is a straight line." - Mr. Obvious
Linear problems are those that have well defined solutions that respond to a predictable strategy. They reflect the ability to reason logically with a clear goal. To develop this skill we provide a variety of "how to get there from here" games. The route is littered with obstacles both live and mechanical, usually moving and sometimes even defying gravity!
Nimball RewindThis game happens totally among mechanical parts inside a machine. Another unique aspect is that players can make time go backward to correct mistakes, rather than having o start at the beginning each time.
That Gravity GamePlayers must take the Marshmallow Man through a series of mazes to reunite with his family, staying aware of which way gravity is falling at all times.[/one_half_last]
Slime LaboratoryThe slime has to go through a machine in Slime Laboratory, reminiscent of Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times.
Fancy PantsThe animation in Fancy Pants is delightful, the environments very creative and the character can do many things.
Dream TowerYou must make a puffball like fish jump from platform to platform to get to the top of Dream Tower while avoiding rampaging bulls, among other things.
Final NinjaAnd in Final Ninja, the world's best ninja must traverse strange terrain to defeat his final enemy.
- Multitudes, on many game sites, most more violent than these (Google 'Zombie games' if you have the stomach).
