Flash Content Downloadable
 

As from today all major webbrowsers will cease to support the official flash-plugin, flash content cannot be played this way online anymore. However, it is still possible to run swf files offline. All swf files on the site are now available for download. Once on your computer, these files can be opened with the Flash Player application, which is available here:

Text taken from an interview with Li Tie (the Chinese footballer playing for Everton) is moving as a band around the objects and hits an object occasionally. This triggers one of Li Tie's vocal statements and the language of the shown text changes according to the origin of the object that was hit.

sound cell
 

[auto-sound-sequence]

Based on cellular automata. Each nodes plays a sound and after a time delay, triggers the nodes it is connected with. The delay depends on the distance to the other node. Dependent on the random network, the resulting sequence might stabilize and play as a loop.

netway
 

[single player game]

Dots with direction arrows can move along nodes, which are randomly connected. The goal is to transport them all into the bigger gate-dots. Such a move adds to the score. Every move to an empty node decreases the score; every move to an occupied node provokes a chain reaction and no change of the score. The game finishes with a score of 150.

num mem
 

[memory test]

Based on a setup to test short time memory and reactivity of primates. You are exposed to a chain of numbers for a short time. Then you have to click the hidden numbers in the right order, starting with the lowest.

Apparently, apes trained in a pavlovian way are handling this task faster and with a lower error rate than humans.

turn
 

[single player game]

Objects in a grid. When clicked they rotate their arms to a new random position. If one arm touches a neighboring object's arm, this object's arms start to rotate. Each turn of the chain reaction scores one point. Every click not only sets a seed, but also resets the counter to zero.

Appeared as case study in friendsofed's book 'flash game studio'. You can download the source code on their site.
