The Silversphere game is a classic puzzle game that features a silver sphere in need of being placed into a blue vortex. Each level has the player control things using arrow keys, and you have to roll the sphere through the level's maze in order to make it into the vortex.
The sphere has to stay on land through each level or a total of five hundred points will be lost and the level will have to be restarted. Gold spheres will randomly pop up during game play and are to be avoided. Running into a gold sphere will explode the silver sphere and the level will automatically be restarted. Other obstacles in gameplay include claws, ice cubes, and wooden boxes, all of which need to be dealt with to continue onto the next level.
A hint for using the claws - use the silver sphere to roll a wooden box on top of it. Once the wooden box is on the claw a blue vortex in that level will appear. Get to the vortex and you'll make it to the next level. If a level has a blue claw, then an ice cube must be used to open the vortex instead of a wooden box. Click through here to play: Silversphere

This game is a bit like the tabletop game of Simon Says but with a musical alien twist. Best played with headphones or a speaker, this game challenges you to follow the blinking colors and sounds of each sveer in succession. The alien Oversveerz will sing out a line of notes that correspond with different colored sveerz. If you correctly follow the order given to you, then the sveerz you choose will be free from the board.
Sveerz that are eliminated from the board leave room for more sveerz to fall. Random sveerz will continue to fall during game and if the board becomes filled with sveerz, the game will be over. To play this musical alien puzzle game, click through here: Sveerz
