    You can play today’s game online for free 24/7 HERE7 and there’s more levels via the players pack (not included with todays giveaway) HERE (see video game play (walkthroughs so spoiler alert) below.

    Installation:

    downloads to a 16.6 MB zip file that unpacks to a read me and a wrapped setup file (the orange colored file with the key symbol), plus there’s a setup file with security (setup.gcd) that’s protected from being hacked (because the previous giveaway system was easily cracked). This file may case some security software to alert the user to a possible malware attack, but it will be a false positive.

      Cyclops 3

    The game giveaway team check all game giveaways for malware using several well known anti -malware suites. There has never been a game giveaway infected with malware since the project started back in Dec 2006. (The owners know that allowing such things would compromise their buisness, so they make sure all software given away via the giveaway and gamegiveaway sites are throughly checked for all types of malware before allowing community members to download any files.

    Some community members have been having problems installing games since the security software was added. It’s been found that turning off your security temporarily or configuring it to accept the setup.cgd file usually sorts the problem out.

    To register and install the game click on the orange colored icon. The installed game is 8.73 MB in size. and installs to the following path (by default no folder just the executable) by default:

    C:\Gamesg\Cyclops Physics

    The path can be changed to suit whatever your wishes are. Once the game is installed you can delete the giveaway setup files. There is a shortcut installed to the desktop and one to the start menu plus you’ll find an uninstaller. There’s also a link to Playrix’s site installed to the desktop. This can safely be deleted without compromising the game. :)

    Actually two files are installed, both are the same apart from one has the wheemplay video logo included.

    I’ve tested the game on a Win 7 and Win 8 systems and it works on both. I don’t have a Vista or XP installation set up at the moment (and won’t for several months until we move house later this year).

    Introduction:

    This game was previously given away last May 2012.

    Click on the cyclops to make them change shape to get them safely onto the platforms that match their color. Full Description: Click on the cyclops to make them change shape to get them safely onto the platforms that match their color. Be sure to not get any onto platforms that don’t

    Reference accessed HERE 5th Jan 2010

    The Game:

    A typical Wheemplay physics game where you have to move green and red blocks from point A to point B using stationary and moving platforms. you can change the shape of the blocks to balls and back by clicking on them once.

    There are 24 levels to work through, plus a sprint button which i’ve not got around to checkintg (I’m off to the house again so probably won’t have time this morning). If anyone works through the levels please post info on this. Thank you.

    There’s a level editor included with the game, so you can create your own levels. :)

    Please note that you must use the file that includes the wheemplay video if you want to play the game full screen. The other file won’t maximise to full screen.

    Video

    You can see several ‘spoiler’ video’s of HERE, HERE, HERE

    There’s a player pack available to play online with more levels. you can see a video of it HERE,

    Conclusion:

    As with most Wheemplay games, there’s no instructions on how to play this game, but it’s simple to pick up. you’ll probably complete the whole game in less than 30 minutes. Still, the level editor that’s included should enable you to extend the games playability. Designing levels can be as much fun as playing them. Pity there’s no way of sharing them with others.

    Problems:

    If you are posting late in the day I would also suggest posting in the main giveaway forums, in the game discussion section because I cannot moderate 24hrs a day over the weekend. If you’ve installed the game but it won’t work for some reason, it should still be registered, so someone may be able to help at another time. Unfortunately if your problem is actually installing it then once the giveaway period is over there’s nothing that can be done until the game is given away again (though that isn’t guaranteed). Sometimes you can still register the game after the giveaway has ended so long as you managed to start the download before the giveaway ends. I’ve tested this and sometimes the grace period lasts for up to 2 hours, but more often than not 1 hour is the norm.

    It’s always worth checking out the free games sites as sometimes the games we get here are also available for free from them. MyPlayCity has the most with over 600 games to choose from. You WILL find 4 Elements over at MyPlayCity (but not the Premium version).

      ——————————————————————————————————————

    Games, Games, and yet more Games plus Download, Installation & Game play Problems:

    If you have any problems installing or getting to work today’s game please go HERE for help. I’ve posted all of the common problems and solutions in a FAQ thread, which you can find in the sticky section of the forums by following the above link.

    If you’re looking for something other than today’s game check the didimatic site via THIS link for some brilliant deals.

    There’s 70 games on sale over on Steam at the moment with discounts from 10% to 80%. You’ll find all the deals via the Specials tab on Steams front page HERE. The usual weekend sales include 75% off Portal 2 and 50% off Worms Revolution (plus all dlc) There’s also a play for free weekend on Worms Revolution. The 24hr deal is 40% off the excellent Far Cry 3 (also the strategy guide). If you pre-order Dead Island Riptide (released 25th april) from Steam you will get the original Dead Island for free plusthe Riptide survivors pack dlc. This deal is also available over at GreenManGaming, but instead of Dead Island you get Risen (RPG). Also on sale at GMG is 75% off the Grand Theft Auto franchise. you’ll find al;l of the hot deals from GMG THIS

    You’ll find many more game deals from Gamersgate, Gamestop, Greenman Gaming and GOG; all of which you can find via the Didimatic site, which I’ve linked to above (apart from Greenman gaming – GMG).

    To be honest there are too many game deals around too list them all. Just visit the sites I recommend above and I’m sure you’ll find something that suits you for a very decent price.

    You can get a free arcade game via Alawar’s game box, just click the free game tab. It changes approximately every month If that’s not enough, check out the Game Discussion forums HERE for details of other games either free or on deals such as the Indie Game bundles or check out the four day sales at IndieGameStand.

    The latest IndieGameStand game is Guns of Icarus Online This bundle ends around 4am Monday GMT. There’s also several indie bundles over at Indiebundle.org. Each bundle has three games and costs $5 each for the basic bundle plus a few dollars more for extras. There are three or four excellent Indie Bundles live at the moment. check out the Inmdie Gala bundle that includes Mass Effect 2 plus several other games for less than $6. (Amazing deal)

    Most of the bundles retail for around $5 give or take a few dollars, but you can pay as little as a dollar.

      ========================================================

    A Request for help:

    Developers rely on good feedback to improve their games. If you download this game please take some time once you’ve played it a while to leave some constructive feedback either positive or negative. The more constructive feedback we get, the more likely developers are going to give more games away. The giveaway site already has a very good standing with the search engines. Developers want their products out there on the WWW, this site has the potential to do that. The game giveaway project gives away on average between 9 to 17 thousand downloads for each game depending upon what genre and how obscure the game is. That’s a lot of homes these games are being downloaded into and a lot of ‘potential’ cash that’s being lost by the developers. If we get better games because of better feedback, the community are likely to continue to benefit from the generosity of the developers. Satisfied community members are then more likely to visit the home sites of those developers and purchase games that they may not have bothered with before they discovered the developer via the game giveaway site, thus giving the developers more incentives to give away even more decent games.

    Please leave some feedback once you’ve checked the game out. It can be positive or negative, but please explain what your reasons were for the feedback you post. You could also leave suggestions for improving the game, for example, this game could do with more block types for the levels editor, add more power-ups, describing the ones you think would be suitable, add some mini games (which seem all the rage in some arcade games now) or enable the user to be able to change the in game music easily.

    Thank you in advance to all those who take the time to post a constructive comment.

    Regards

  3. If I maximize the window the game area remains of the same size of the restored window (in a maximized window frame)!!! :(

    Any solution to this annoying bug?

    …………………………Moderator comment…………………….

    When installing the game, two execxutables are installed. Use the version that has the Wheemplay video logo playing at the start of the game. That one will open to full screen. If it doesn’t try changing your screen resolution temporarily.
