Friday Fun: Swap It ET (Gears Game)

swap-it-et-gears-game-00

This week’s game presents you with multiple puzzles to solve, each more challenging than the last. Throw in moving gears to muddle up the visual process and you have your hands full as you work to solve each one. Can you do it or will you be forced to give up in defeat?

There are fifteen levels waiting to challenge your puzzle solving skills…

The first level is not bad and lets you become familiar with how the game works and looks. All that you need to do is click on two puzzle pieces in order to switch (trade) their positions and keep going until all of them are in their proper place in the gear set up. Keep in mind that the gears are actually moving while you switch puzzle pieces around (and will increase the visual challenge as you progress into higher levels).

Note: It is important that you remember to base your switching choices on the color and look of the gears, NOT the size of the individual puzzle pieces.

Only two puzzle pieces left to switch with each other. The puzzle pieces that you click on will have an enhanced white outline as seen here.

Once you have all of the puzzle pieces in their proper places, you will see the entire set of gears moving and complete for just a moment.

At the end of each level you will be presented with 1 – 3 stars as your score depending on how efficiently you switched the puzzle pieces around.

    Are there ANY online/free games that don’t use Java (Java Script) or Flash?!

    Seems like there have been quite a few security problems lately with those technologies. So hopefully someone can suggest other games to try?
