Games                                                     

Games are always popular on a web site. Most web surfers can't resist to do a little trivia quizz. Research by Jupiter Communications shows that the majority of online gamers are adults who play parlor games such as chess and backgammon. Bear this in mind when you are choosing a game for your website.

Newz.info Flag Quiz
A neat idea. A flag quiz pops up in a seperate window. You are presented with a multiple choice quiz and a basic response page. The only thing I didn't like about this was that it pops up in a seperate window without your visitors permission ! As a customer I always close them before they display and make a note to never go back to the website. Anyway, its your choice - the nice thing is that the code is provided and you could probably make changes so it displayed on user demand or even inline somehow.

Wrath
Hmmm. What can I say. A tasteless and destructive game with no point or meaning, created as an example of the authors skills. The author of this game is allowing anybody to upload it onto their website. However your site will have to be quite specialised. I was in two minds whether to include it in FreeSticky but decided there may be the odd website out there that can find it useful. I'am sure with direction that the author could create some very interesting games.
