Here's a great little Flash game of mini-golf that is very well done if you can overlook the rather simplistic and plain looking graphics. After all, it's all about the gameplay, isn't it?
From the BBC show featuring the same Blobs comes this cute little Flash game that is actually a bit of a challenge. Similar to the classic Lunar Lander game, the objective of Blob Lander is to fly and land your spaceship gracefully.
Here's a beautifully crafted Flash multimedia piece by Drew Cope and Sam Lanyon Jones from their multi-award winning site called TokyoPlastic where they will be rolling out version two in May. Not new, I just think it's cool. Enjoy. Click....
Here's a Flash game about gene sequencing from the UK which is surprisingly fun to play. The controls took me a couple of games to get used to, then I caught on to it quickly.

One of the very first games ever to be featured here at JIG, Cats is an adorably cute game created by Ferry Halim. A very simple game that captures the essence of the fickle feline. From his Original site, a treasure trove for the casual game lover, and especially for kids. It is clear that Ferry puts his heart into every game he makes.
