Strategy, Design & Engineering Games.


In the last 10 years or so I have been captivated by only 2 online games. The first was created by the Dyson Vacuum Company as a promotional device (I think) when the company was new. I played that for hours until completing all levels. It is the kind of game that upon finishing the final level loses its appeal. My wife and I both played the game and at some levels we were both convinced that an error had been made and that no solution exists. We were wrong, it just takes time to figure it out.

Telescope Game


The second game I have had difficulty leaving alone was produced by Johnson Controls and is a design/engineering type game. I found a link on Facebook (I think again) last week and I can not stop playing it. It is easier to understand by looking at it than explaining it. I am at 14 of 15 coconuts transported in 30 seconds. Make that 15 of 15 in 30 seconds.

If you know of any games like these, let me know.

Must...resist...temptation. The socks are calling my name. [Not to mention the job that pays for the yarn to knit the socks.]

You're talking to a man who never got that far beyond Elf Bowling...

I just went through all 49 levels of Blocky 2. I love puzzle games lol! Maybe not as sophisticated as the ones you referred to Fran but very addictive.
