There is a great deal of lively debate about whether video and PC games are detrimental to the youth of today. Some say that they are killing the imagination of our children and are preventing them from engaging in other tasks such as reading, conversing and studying.
I prefer to look at it another way though. By carefully choosing, together with your child, a historically based game such as Smash the Castle 2, you are actually drawing them into a world of imagination – and often historical fact!
History is considered by many to be a dry subject due to the way that it has been taught in many schools over the years. Largely learned by rote and based on dates and events rather than really trying to understand our ancestors; how they lived, what they did in their real lives, and how they thought. (more...)

Some of the most addictive games out there are so called crush the castle type games; games in which your main goal is to use the tools you are given in order to destroy any structure which stands in your way.

No matter the actual specifics (be it an actual castle you destroy with catapults, or a wooden structure you break with birds), every form of crush the castle type games is a hit with those who play it.

Take to the Air in Titan Lunch Retalitation
Pop quiz! Your lunch has been stolen by a freakishly odd looking bird, what do you do?
If your answer is to run on the mountainside, launch yourself into the air armed with a sword and a grappling to hook to exact some bloody revenge, then we have just the game for you: Titan Lunch Retaliation! This incredibly addictive game hides itself in the guise of a its deceptively simple graphics. And we are not surprised. Developed by the fine folks at Adult Swim (yes, the same mad geniuses behind Robot Unicorn Attack), Titan Lunch takes players on a bizarre yet action filled trip into the skies as they slay all sorts of flying fantasy monsters.
Raining Blood and Guts: When you are flying up in the sky, impaling creatures with a grappling hook so that you can jump on their backs, stab them with a sword and use their lifeless body as a jumping platform towards your next victim, it is pretty hard to say that you are playing a tame game. There is no two ways about it, Titan Lunch Retaliation is a bloody violent casual throwing game – not in the post watershed gruesome news stories kind of way, but more of the excessively cartoony sort of way. Still, you might want to give your kid a quick briefing before letting him (or her) play this game. That said, considering how responsive the controls are and how smooth the delivery is, we still say that this is one title for many ages. (more...)

What was your favorite subject at school? I'll bet it wasn't math. Most of us have a kind of blockage when it comes to manipulating numbers, and that's why free online math games can have real benefits for children. It can take the boredom out of the subject and make it fun, and children usually respond well to that.
If you came from an age when you had to learn all the multiplication tables by rote, you are very familiar with drudge and boredom: "Seven times two is fourteen, seven times three is twenty-one, seven times four is ..." I'm sure you'd rather forget and just be thankful that education methods have moved on.
Luckily for today's children, someone thought to do studies on how children learn best. They discovered that, while children often struggle with most school subjects, math was the one that, on average, they struggle with the most. That led the people conducting the studies to take a look at why. (more...)
When I was a young boy, knee high to a grasshopper, as my granddad would say, I used to dream. Boy did I dream! Sometimes I would imagine myself as the size of an ant, crawling between the grass and flowers, to realms unexplored. Frogs and fauna, cats and cauliflowers, all spread out beneath me.

Ironhide Studios announced that Kingdom Rush will have a sequel this spring and will feature new towers and territories. We all loved the original game with it's cute graphics, funny characters and charming game play.
Kingdom Rush brought a touch of class to the some what tacky tower defense browser game with Ironhide focusing on quality rather than quantity in terms of towers and upgrades. The Kingdom Rush Sequel: Frontiers promises to be a natural extension to the first game (which itself received a generous update recently).
Sticking to the what made the first game a classic hit will be as important as looking to satisfy fans with new additions - too many games wander too far from core values so striking the balance between old and new will be tricky but imperative to the success of Frontiers.
