Addictive games

Yes, the Bee is back.

A fellow blogger, Stephanie, has added a small but delightful widget called Fish. It's all about feeding little fishie food to little fishies. Very cute and addictive.


Another addictive game site that I found the other day while browsing DesignMom was this: Orisinal: Morning Sunshine.

Here's a little blurb from the very trusted Wikipedia: Orisinal is a website featuring 60 Adobe Flash games. The website was created in 2000 by Ferry Halim. It won the World Summit Award in 2003. Ferry Halim's games mostly contain small animals. The majority [I think all] of the games are cute and have beautiful outdoor backgrounds and relaxing, ambient music, with a few games involving fighting and battle. The website also contains an online store, guest book [where you get to create a cute avatar!], desktop wallpaper, trailers, and also a special function that allows users to send and receive flowers custom-made via email services.

I have sent the "freshly picked flowers" from Orisinal today to all my friends to spread a little happiness. The games are extremely cute. I really like Bubble Bees, High Delivery, and Starry Night [from among the ones I've tried].

For those who like Jelly Fishing, but unfortunately do not belong to the delightful world of SpongeBob SquarePants, Bubble Bees is the game for you. The top image is Bubble Bees in action.

Another beautiful game, High Delivery, where you blow the balloon to collect all the pretty flowers ...

...

... and you ultimately reach and deliver them at Heaven's Gate. I liked the concept very much.

Are those your fishes in the picture? How did you get pink and purple?

yup it is quite awesome and addictive, isn't it?! and the games are so beautifully created ...

yes, they are my fishes ... aren't they gorgeous? there's a way you can add hex codes [hex codes are, in short, numbers representing colours for web] in that application. if you want, i can give you an address to what i think is the best site to get hex codes [which is where i got mine from], or you can just select the colours you want in that colour selection panel ... i think using hex codes is easier because it shows you a list of colours, and you can just go pick whichever one you want, as they're listed by their shades.

i think i'm going to have some brown and yellow fishes for my blog, because it's my main colour theme!

oh, and by the way, stephanie, you need to click on "edit settings" which is right beneath the description of the widget. this gives you the panel to pick fish colours, number of fish, background colour, background image, etc.

hope that helps!

Oh! Did you know that you can put your "the Graphic Bee" poster thing you made as the back round of your fish pond.

Gandhali said...

yup, but i thought that the fish being that colours as well, it wouldn't really stand out :(

plus, the background of my blog is plain too!!!
