Nest of MoaiJohnBNest of Moai is an online flash game that will take you exactly 90 seconds to beat. Fortunately there's a little more to it than just one run through, and with its quirky sense of humor you'll play it several times in a row.

The goal in Nest of Moai is to move the cursor over the Moai statues to score points. The three scenes (each 30 seconds long) have different patterns of statues popping out of windows, from behind the horizon, dropping from parachutes, etc. From time to time a large statue appears that you have to rub the cursor over several times to make vanish.

The game itself is fairly straightforward, but the real winning factor is the sense of humor. Think late-night Japanese television show, complete with spunky music, a man yelling in Japanese, and flashing text all over the screen. A good game and a good laugh transcend any language barrier.

Analysis: For a 90 second game, this one really makes you want to keep playing. Any game's ultimate goal is to give you a sense of accomplishment, causing your brain to release lots of happy-making chemicals. From making a row in Tic-Tac-Toe to defeating Sephiroth, it's all about the chemical rewards. Nest of Moai pulls this off very well in a short period of time and successfully calls you back for more. And more. And more. And m— why can't I stop playing this game?!!

Give Nest of Moai a try. You've got 90 seconds, right?

Play Nest of Moai

Wow...this game is seriously cracked out (and is it even possible to click all the heads (which seemed more like tater-tots to me)?).

Nest of Moai is another game from the great SKT Products, who created Magnet 2, Bombsweeper 3D, Goki Dash, and The Frog World. A weird guy, to be sure.

Yeah I got 2188 on the second try... 'cause of the tab key, but my high score without the tab key was 688. Pretty fun game, good find John. ;-)

Ha ha , a funny one.

Using the 'TAB' spoils all the fun, common problem with flash games.

I've found a good strategy is to move the cursor in quick circles rather than straight lines. Much better scores that way. :-)

That is, if you don't use TAB... 8-|

The link is not working? It worked fine for me. Surely it must be something on your end, Tamha?

No offense but this game was kind of stupid. I got an A the first time with like 68% with out cheating even on a laptop. I don't think you guys should waste to much time on this game. No offense Jay, but this game is not worth it.
