Guess the names of the famous faces riding along in the cable cars in Skywire VIP.
Back when we made the original Skywire we had lots of emails guessing at who the little people in the cable cars were supposed to be. We liked this and so we expanded the selection of characters in Skywire 2 which we got even more email guesses about!
We actually made this mini-quiz in December 2008 when we started drawing lots of characters for a potential Skywire sequel. Although we haven't got round to making a Skywire 3 (yet) we thought it would be quite fun to incorporate them all into a quiz so that you could all see them and try to guess who they are supposed to be.
We hope the updates to Icebreaker: The Gathering and B.C. Bow Contest have kept everyone busy so far in January. We are pleased to announce that we now have a brand new game...
Help the workmen demolish old abandoned buildings in Rubble Trouble. Use the mouse to select a tool and try to destroy each building to reach the target amount for each level.
After taking a break over December the cavemen are back, and they've found a new location to hold a bow contest!
This time they are playing over a tar pit! The tar is full of dinosaurs who have got themselves stuck and can't get out. Be careful not to let your arrows fall into the tar or they'll go the way of the dinosaurs too (and lose you points).

Just a short post to let you know that we have made a slight adjustment to Icebreaker: The Gathering to prevent the "game complete" screen from coming up after the end of each clan after you have completed all of the levels. The fix will allow you to carry on with the next clan at this point and thus achieve a higher score.
In the fifth instalment of Icebreaker: The Gathering we meet the Hunter Clan. What are their fur hats made of? Help them rescue all of their clan and watch out for a weird new type of rock that allows you to add in pins to hold it steady. Using this in combination with your power to slice the ice you should be able to help our viking friends escape the frozen perils of the glaciers and get back to their longboat.

The Red-Heads are back in part four of our Icebreaker: The Gathering levels. The Red Clan have gotten themselves into a bit of bother with a new level element: metal chains. These chains steadily hold objects together but they can't be cut through so you must use your puzzle-solving skills to figure out how to get the Reds to safety!

We now have part 3 of the Icebreaker: The Gathering levels available for you to play! In part 3 in a nod to a fan suggestion we meet the Raven Clan... a dark and mysterious tribe from the south. Fearsome warriors, these feisty vikings must face an unusual adversary... bouncy moss! Help them bounce their ...way to victory by saving the clan and returning them to their captain on the ship.
Part two of Icebreaker: The Gathering has been opened up today. In this chapter we see a return of the clan from the very first Icebreaker. The first clan have a new element that they must face: items which move on rails!
There are eight new levels for you to play. Stay tuned for a new level pack next week!
We have a very special sneak peek of an upcoming sequel to one of last year's most popular games: Icebreaker!
Packed full of exciting new elements and new viking clans there will be 40 new levels for you to solve.
