Find zen on the interstate in this driving game of sorts.
You arrange friendly blue cars on the road, and wrestle with a pesky red car.
A fun game to learn, and very rewarding to complete.
Put glasses into a cabinet and take them back out.
A simple traditional board game.
Easy to learn, hard to master.
Tap colored tiles and see them light up and make sounds.
Includes challenging games for hours of fun.
Also serves as a pocket drumset, a great way to play along with music or kill time.
Now with tap recording, so if you have a drum beat in mind you can tap it in
and play it back later.
Explore our solar system in this game of proportions.
- Clearly the planets don't orbit the Sun that quickly, but the speed they orbit is accurate relative to each other.
- Clearly the Sun is much larger than any mere planet, but the sizes of the planets are proportional to each other.
- Clearly the distance between the Sun and between the planets are much higher, but the sizes of the orbits are proportional to each other.
I think this 3D simulation gives the user a good idea of how relatively quickly orbits are, how big orbits are, and how far the Sun and planets are from each other.
Visit a distant moon covered in colorful gems. Collect them all at your pace in this relaxing 3D activity.
