MathsNet Interactive Geometry is a very nice puzzle game where you have to place certain number of cubes in 3D space so that the figure will look certain way from the front, right and top. Some of them are very easy, but other are somewhat challenging.
Galves Adventure is a new game by On from Eyezmaze. It’s very well done and fun to play for a while, until it gets very frustrating because you have to repeat the same stuff several times to reach certain point in the game. It’s still a great game though, and reaching the end is very rewarding. I wrote a walkthrough in case you get stuck, you can find it here

Glass-wing Buterflies is a set of pictures of “glass-wing butterflies” which are basically butterflies with transparent wings. Really amazing pictures.

After reading it you can’t help but ask yourself, “Would I have stopped?”. Personally, I don’t know, I’d like to think that I would have, but in reality I’m not sure…
Jelly Jumper is a fun little game where you control a Jelly man who’s objective is to jump around a keyboard. It’s very well done and quite fun.
