You have to fill a board of different colored tiles starting ... blind, give 7 Colors a try. The concept, at least at the time of its release, is unique, and the implementation is very good.

First (but unfortunately only) in the "Action-Word" series, the best way to describe the game ... and Zero Entertainment is no more.

Styx in another style.
A somewhat uninspired shareware puzzle game, Apocalypse Abyss doesn't have much you haven't seen in many other puzzlers.

Question & answer game. Play solo or with some friends.
