I'm away on vacation at the moment (Turkey). {Posted before I left}. I've read that the hotel's internet service is really bad; there's no cabled access in the hotel rooms and the only place you can apparently get a reasonable signal is in reception (whats new). Also, the reception has been likened to a cattle market for most of the day with lots of children and adults sitting glued to their iPhones/Android/iPads/laptops etc. That's not really my idea of a vacation, plus I'm not paying thousands of pounds to sit in a reception just to access the internet. So, unfortunately, it's highly unlikely I'll be able to post anything for the next two weekends plus moderation is probably out as well. I'll be back for the weekend of the 28th of July.
Have a great summer. Here in the UK, the weather has been amazing, though many are now complaining that we need rain. I don't recall such a summer here in the UK since I was a kid. Many people I've spoken to say it's the longest period of decent weather since 1976. I was based in Germany serving with the Royal Corps of Signals just outside Krefeld (a small village called Fischeln) at the time and remember we were banned from firing our rifles on the ranges in case we set the grass on fire. Can't believe it's been so long (42 years) since we had such a stretch of amazing weather.

Anyway, I digress. If you have any issues please check the game discussion forums. I've included the last few paragraphs of my standard review below, which includes useful links including the one to the FAQ's thread.

Useful Information not related to today's game giveaway:

You can find useful information about games and any current deals in posted the sticky section of the game discussion forums HERE. The rest of the information that used to be posted with my reviews can be found in the forums HERE. Also, check out Delenns thread for details of other free games and offers HERE. None of the threads are always kept up to date, but most links will still take you to the latest deals. The best deals can be found via the various bundle sites, but some of the big name AAA developers such as EA Games (via Origin) and Ubisoft (via UPlay) sometimes offer older AAA titles for free for a limited time; for example Origin are giving away Peggle for free at the moment.

Having problems installing today's game?

If you have a problem installing or activating or getting todays game to work please visit the problems section, which you can find in the FAQ's thread HERE. Also read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted. The main issue we have is with the giveaway wrapper, which uses a Themida based code to protect the games executable. Unfortunately, Themida is also used to hide malware; so, as a precaution, some security software may block the installation and sometimes even delete the executable file. Blocking or deletion is usually determined partly by the way your computer is set up. Usually you'll get a message saying ''the file is corrupted'', but in reality, the files are okay. There are a couple of things you can do to overcome this issue. The first is to reboot in safe mode with networking, install the game then reboot, or secondly you can (at your own risk) temporarily turn off your security, install the game, then turn your security back on. A note of reassurance to those that choose the latter and quicker method. The game giveaway team have been giving away games for over 11 years (Dec 2006 & prior to that, via the main site 2 or 3 times weekly from Oct 2006 to Dec 2006) and have 'NEVER' given away a game infected with malware; they always test every giveaway with several of the top anti-malware suites to ensure all games are free from malware.

If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, if you have a problem getting the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve or if you have a game you've created that you'd like to offer the community you can do so HERE

I remember playing this many years ago, and remember that I enjoyed it. Graphics worked well. It took me a while to understand they game. As I got through more levels it got harder, requiring a change in strategy. It was more of a fast game, not a game where you take a long time to study the board and plan your moves. Looking forward to playing again, thanks GGOTD and MyPlayCity!

Try to download everytime the page:

keep Oooops!

Sorry, the page you're looking for isn't here.
Maybe you've clicked on an obsolete link or mistyped the URL, or maybe it's just us.

Don't fret!
Just go to our home page and proceed from there.

How to fix?

po, You could try to clean Windows. Also clean browser history and cookies.
Maybe the downloadlink will work.
BUT: after cleaning the cookies all other cookies of all the sites are gone. And that sites have to "learn" again about you.
You can also try a different browser, just download it and test it.

I keeping having this problem as well.
Seriously, please fix up this problem.
It goes beyond reason that you want to "prevent" people from downloading and trying out the apps/games.
And no, it's not my PC or browser's problem, as it works for a million-and-one websites, except this!

EW0601, "please fix up this problem."
Problem: where? with your PC or Website?
There are a lot of people, who can download the software.
Me too in Win8.1 and Win10 and Win10 mobile. No trouble at all.
You can download from million-and-one websites, so also no trouble.
But only with GOTD and your Windows, there is a trouble. Maybe there is something strange with the connection with your Windows and GOTD-server. Therefore look there for the fault.
Maybe a setting, maybe a cookie, maybe . .
Therefore the suggestion to use another browser for a test. Or use a InPrivate session.
OR use your phone to download it and transfer it. That's what I do every day.

Fast enough computer, fast enough internet connection, painfully slow game execution.

Fun Cubis type game

I found this game enjoyable to play downloaded and ran on windows 10.You have to match at least 3 runes on the game board and try and clear the runes before moving on to the next level. You can play a timed or relaxed mode and can switch in-between levels if you want to. There are power ups on each level. The levels become harder as you progress.
