In case you haven't noticed, we added a new mini-game to the sidebar over the weekend. This one is named just Tiny Game and it was created exclusively for JIG by the Flash and casual game wizard, Tonypa.
It's a very simple game: use the [arrow] keys to move and to collect all the gems. There is no jumping in this game. Your score is the number of steps it takes you to find all the gems.
There are a number of features that make this little gem exceptional. Besides the little gems that you must collect—50 in all, distributed randomly each time you begin a new game—the game will remember your position and progress across page views. So, no matter where you are on JIG, you can continue right where you left off.
Right-click to access a menu where you can choose to play the game in full-screen mode (if it's just a little too tiny for your liking), to turn off the music and/or sound effects, or to reset your progress and start anew. Also, be sure you're logged into your Casual Gameplay account if you wish your score to be submitted to the high score list when you finish. (Not logged in, or need to sign up for an account? Click the "Sign in" link at the very top right of the page.)
Update: We removed the game from the sidebar for now, but if you wish to play this awesome little tiny game, we've created a page in our free online games portal.
(Please allow page to fully load for spoiler tags to be functional.)
A map you wish? A map drawn I have and up I loaded it.
May helpful it be to the path you will find.

My eyes were killing me trying to use Yoda's excellent map, so I... killed my eyes some more coloring it in. There is a little rhyme-and-reason to the colors used, but I'll leave that to you to discern.
I Yoda thank!
