Double Wires

The best part of the Spider-Man movies is when Spidey shoots webbing around so he can swing from one building to another. If your swing gene is itching, scratch it with Double Wires, a Adobe Macromedia Shockwave game you don't even have to download to play--although you may need to download the Shockwave player.

Double Wires has a sparsely drawn, vaguely humanoid figure who also can shoot sticky strands from his wrists as he swings among abstract blobs. You do the strand shooting by place your cursor on a blob and clicking. It's harder than it sounds. And more fun too. Think of it has a game that only has the good part.

"And Yet It Moves"

"And Yet It Moves" is basically a mixture between a jump and run and a puzzle game, with the extra ability to rotate the world. The player can run left, right and jump, but can also turn the world clockwise and counterclockwise by 90 degrees. When this happens physics works the following way: as soon as rotation starts all objects get frozen and after rotation objects continue to move with their velocities (direction and speed) they had before. With this ability you can move objects and yourself but also need to keep orientation and watch out for dangerous situations. Don't worry though, you' re made out of paper so you can die as often as you want to.

The overall goal is to get through this collage of ripped paper. And if you are quick - and don´t die too often - you might get into the highscore list.
