Free Game Friday – Urchins Boom

When you first begin playing Urchins Boom, this week’s Free Game Friday selection, your first thought is probably something along the lines of “well, that was easy!” And even after the second or third stage, you’ll more than likely feel much the same way. But wow, when the difficulty of this devilish, unassuming little puzzler begins to ramp up, it gets really hard, really quick!

The object of Urchins Boom is deceptively simply; tap one urchin and send its spines into the others to blow them up. But while some urchins require only one tap, others require two, three and so on. And of course, you’re only given a fixed number of taps with which to accomplish this.

Take a look at some screenshots from the game below, then click on any one of them (or HERE) and start playing Urchins Boom now!

7 Fairy Tale Facts That Might Surprise You!

In honor of Tell A Fairy Tale Day we’ve whipped up a special Word Search Daily puzzle with a fairy-tale theme and we also thought it’d be fun to gather some interesting facts about fairy tales that may surprise you!

Who doesn’t love fairy tales? From Shrek to Once Upon A Time to Into The Woods, fairy tales are currently and long have been an essential part of pop culture. But how much do you really know about them? Read on and find out!

1. The most well-known collectors of fairy tales, The Brothers Grimm did not intend for the folk tales they compiled to be consumed by children. They collected these tales to preserve the storytelling traditions of the Germanic people.

2. In the original tale of Cinderella, the wicked stepmother, in order to make the stepsister’s feet fit into the golden slipper, hands them a knife and commands them to cut off parts of their feet.

3. In the original tale of Aladdin, the wishes the genie actually grants unlimited wishes, not just three.

4. The 3 bears in Goldilocks weren’t originally a family. They were just 3 good-natured and kindly bears. Over the years they have morphed into a father, mother and baby bear.

5. Astronomers and astrophysicists have adopted the term “Goldilocks planet” to describe a planet that falls within a star’s habitable zone; a region around a star within which planetary objects can maintain sufficient atmospheric pressure to support liquid water on the surface. In other words, it’s not too far from the star, nor is it too close. It’s “just right”.

6. In many versions of the Red Riding Hood tale, Red is actually bringing red wine and cake to her grandmother. Also, the “big bad wolf” is frequently portrayed as a werewolf, both human and wolf.

7. Sleeping Beauty, instead of pricking her hand on a spindle, in an Italian collection of folk tales published in 1634, she simply gets a piece of flax lodged under her nail which sends her into a slumber.

So there you have it, 7 things you may not have known about famous fairy tales. Be sure to head to iWin.com to find some fun, fairy-tale themed games, including the brand new Worldwide Premiere time management game, Fairy Kingdom!
