Computers 02


I ran across a pretty nifty puzzle game today at Jay Is Games called Duck: Think Outside the Flock. Each level is a different puzzle involving adorable rubber duckies. The idea here is that you not only have to solve each puzzle, but you have to figure out what the puzzle is in the first place. Each one is different, although later puzzles pick up where earlier ones leave off. Compared the others in the genre, the puzzles aren't terribly difficult (although at least they don't try to pass off increased tedium as increased difficulty), and there are only 25 levels. What makes it for me are the graphics and animation, which are first rate and charming. The music and sound effects are terrific, too. Little kids will love this game.
