Bike Racing Games – An Overview Of The Top 3 Online Bike Games

You may find numerous online bike racing games available today, and they are the best alternative for a lot of us who nurture serious passion towards motorcycles. These games can provide real life thrill for those who can’t afford to participate in real life racing. Thanks to video games, they can provide a better understanding on how our favorite riders control their motorcycles.

Here are top 3 online bike games that have gained high popularity:

· Moto GP – Moto GP has attracted a lot of customers towards it, as it is one of the most successful motorcycle sports in the world. However, a lot of gamers were disappointed later because controlling the bike was an extremely difficult task throughout the game. To build up the frustration, the game does not have a very good tutorial too! However, Moto GP is still one of the best racing games as it has a lot of breathtaking moments. Once you learn how to control your motorcycle, this game can become a pure addiction.

· Moto Racer – The graphics of Moto Racer may not be up to the mark for many hard-core gamers since there are many other video games with better graphics. However, the game boasts one of the best controlling systems in the lot. You will be surprised by the way you can control your motorcycle, and this is why Moto Racer is very popular. You also have plenty of racing options to try from. Options like motocross, street racing, dirt bike racing and track racing are few of them. One of the major downsides for the game is its lower number of tracks.

· Motocross Mania – Are you one of those bikers who prefer to have a little amount of fun while racing? If you are, Motocross Mania is probably the best game you can play because this game is not just about reaching your destination, but you also have to deal with your enemies and a lot of fighting is involved!

These are the top three bike games that have gained high popularity in recent years. For those who are hard-core fans of Moto GP, buying a Moto GP title is the best thing to do because controlling your motorcycle is very identical to that of the real-life one. The game really poses some serious challenges to hard-core gamers and even experienced players find it very difficult to keep their motorcycle steady once they cross a speed of hundred miles per hour. Moto Racer and Motocross Mania are relatively easy to control and these games are created with the intention of offering maximum fun to the player.

Our World Game – Places – The Pier & Wonderland

Remember going to the Pier when you were a kid? Yeah the great big wooden platforms that stand in the sea? Come on the ones Britain is leaving to rot! So, so, sad, anyway you’ll be glad to know there’s one in Our World, accept this one isn’t stood in the sea it’s floating in the sky! And unfortunately there are no chip shops or arcade machines to play on (sorry I tell a lie it looks as though there is but it’s yet to open). There are however, two pretty cool things to do at the pier.

The first place to checkout is Snaps. The Snaps Booth lets you take photos of you and your friends in front of a selection of different backdrops. Unfortunately only three people are allowed in the booth at any one time so large group photos are not possible, but hopefully the Our World team will look to change this. Once the pictures are taken they are stored away in your photo album so you can check them out at a later date. For free players your photo album is limited to ten pictures but for paying players your album is virtually limitless!

The second activity on offer at the Pier is the SkyScope. It’s pretty much your typical seaside scope except this one doesn’t demand excessive fees for a ten second peak at the sea. In fact you won’t see any sea from this scope what you can see though is the “Down World”. Down World is essentially their world (anyone who isn’t playing Our World), it’s the world the Our World gamers don’t want to know about, you know the world with all those boring meetings where people sit talking about boring subjects! Anyway try it yourself the next time you’re at the pier. There are all sorts of funny notes attached to various buildings in the Down World that make for amusing reading.

That’s it for the Pier would you believe. The place gives the impression it’s under construction and I’m sure new activities are in the works. I’d personally like to see fairground rides in Our World; you know the old classics like dodgems, the horses, perhaps a cheap can thrower thrown in for good measure! Oh and not forgetting the doughnuts, you can tell I’ve been on too many trips to the seaside, can’t you?
When you hear the name Wonderland you know it’s going to be a pretty wacky place to go to. You won’t be disappointed. If you’ve ever seen the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory you will know what I am talking about and no I’m not talking about the crummy version with Johnny Depp in! Yes Wonderland is Our World’s version of Willy Wonkers chocolate factory!

Upon arrival in wonderland you are surrounded by gigantic pieces of candy, lucky charms and colourful crystals sticking out of the ground. It’s a pretty impressive sight and it’ll make you hungry if you haven’t eaten, I’m getting hungry just writing about it!

There are three places you to go visit in Wonderland and my favourite of the three is Cake Mania. Cake Mania as the name implies is a pretty crazy place to hang out, but I bet it’s not what you’d expect. In Cake Mania you’re not there to eat cake I’m sorry to say, however you can choose a cake on offer. Yes it sounds confusing let me explain further. Each cake has its own costume that comes with it, so when you order a cake you’re not really ordering a cake but a costume to wear. There are four costumes in total but my favourite is a pink bunny rabbit costume, I won’t spoil it by revealing what the other three are. So cake mania is really just a wacky place to dress up at no cost (a rarity in Our World), with your friends.

The other two places to check out are Enchantments (candy, charms and fairies that follow you around) and Sugar Star (clothes and furniture), both are shops and have their own unique flavour of items to purchase.
Cake Mania and the shops are not the only entertaining things about wonderland it’s probably the most scenic of all places to walk around. So I’d suggest once you are done dressing up and shopping you go for a walk and marvel at the fantastic surroundings, like I said earlier though try not to work up too much of an appetite, or if you can’t help it have some food on hand!

E- Games- The New Age Entertainment Sports

In the age of Internet, E-Games is an irresistible attraction amongst all age groups. The desire to play games has turned children to be more techno savvy these days. E-Games are flexible and intuitive, it’s easy to use so you can spend your time creating games instead of programming them.

You can increase business effectiveness by easily adding more motivation and challenge to your learning programs. With the advent of E-Learning, even Training Games are transforming. Indeed, because Computer Games and Arcades are commonplace, instructional games may be the perfect candidate for e-learning events.

Trainers understand the value of a good game for engaging participants in the learning process, whether as pre-course materials, self-teaching tools, or content reviews. Most games draw on traditional game-show styles such as Jeopardy, or popular boardgames, including Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly. The question-and-answer format of those games proves ideal for self-assessment and memory building. When played in groups, games promote teambuilding and team spirit. More importantly, games alleviate learners’ anxiety about being evaluated.

A sophisticated programmed E-Game usually includes the following features:

· Easy, intuitive authoring interfaces.

· An array of different game types.

· Detailed Help files, sample games, and demonstrations.

· Cross-platform playback using the Flash web player.

· No messy software downloads or installation requirements.

· Options to create games from your web browser.

· You can choose from several skins for your games, including a custom skin that allows you to modify the colors.

· Full customization for any of the game types.

· Your own online Arcade system that allows you to group your games into custom multi-player arcades and invite players to compete.

The average age of an E-Game Player is 29 years and ninety two percent of all games are purchased by adults over the age of 18. 39% E-Game players are women. Computer and video game software sales grew 8% in 2003 to $ 7 billion in the following years and are expected to hike more. However, when compared to the movie industry this segment is still a small player.

In fiscal 2004, ended June 30, E-Games’ sales rose 11% to $8 million, and profit increased 9%, to $1.7 million, from a year earlier. It did have a loss of $184,000 in its 2005 fiscal first quarter, after sales were hurt when Wal-Mart Stores Inc. reduced shelf space it allocates to low-price PC games, E-Games says.

Some very sought after E-Games are as follows:

1. AirXonix: This is a 3-dimensional remake of the Xonix game. In the Xonix game you have to control a device, which is moving over the playing field whilst several monster-balls are wandering inside. The objective is to isolate the balls away from as much spare playing field as possible.

2. Buzzing Cars: Buzzing Cars is a totally crazy racing game where you’ll not only need to be fast but also smart. You must carry out various missions such as drive robots around, chase flying saucers, electrocute aliens and of course race against the clock. You can buy seven different cars with various properties. In every crash, the cars begin to lose parts, until eventually after enough is lost they completely fall apart.

3. Cross & Word Games: A compilation of three simple puzzle games previously released by E-Games in their early RomTech days. Crossword Mania is a set of 110 crossword puzzles and Word Search Mania has 222 word searches.

The objective of the game is to race the marble through the 72 levels each containing moving platforms, dangerous hazards, sparkling treasures and power up enhancements, and complete it in record time.

6. Miniverse Minigolf: Two 9 hole mini golf courses for 1-4 players. One course is set on “Earth” and features putting through locations such as a construction site, a war zone, and a casino. The other course is set in space and includes a variety of science fiction obstacles like tele-porters and laser shields. Players can choose to control their putter by pushing or pulling the mouse and can select one of several different colors for their golf ball.

7. Pinball: E-Games’ Pinball is a 3D pinball simulation with three tables. 3D acceleration is used for all sorts of realistic effects like table glass, light halos, shadows, reflections of the ball on the table, and more.

Child Learning Game – Are Educational Games Online Any Good?

A lot of parents make the mistake that any educational games online are good for their children. However, most of these parents underestimate how much money children plow into internet websites, simply by virtue of browsing and clicking. With this in mind, you should be aware that many websites simply put any old game up in order to get people to click their ads.

However, there are many sites out there where you can find educational games online that are both good for your children, and do not lead them on to dangerous or pornographic websites. I advice you to use parental control software program. It gives you the ability to hold children accountable, and provide security measure to protect them. Young children are impressionable and by being able to see their activities online with PC Tattletale, it helps to know where to aim the conversations and activities.

Educational games online are generally limited by the fact that they must be web-browser based. This is not a problem for math games, word games, or basic activities, but if you want to get a fully-interactive and comprehensive educational game for your computer, you will probably have to walk into a software store. However, educational games online can be an excellent, cheap way of teaching your children important concepts and skills.

At Kidsgames.Org website you can find over 900 educational games online that are all good for developing various skills used in school. These educational games online are suitable for children up to age ten. If your child is over that age, try looking at Nobelprize.ORG website where you can find a few educational games online that are based around the work of this year’s Nobel Prize laureates.

As an elementary school teacher, and a member of the “old school”, I was a little skeptical when children started to play educational games online. Since then though I have realized that as long as the children are guided and watched over properly they can easily find educational games online all by themselves, or with a little nudging. Once you find a good selection of games it is easy to encourage the children to play these games and learn the skills they have to teach. Often these are math or language skills, but there are also social values and ethics embedded into educational games online as well.

Microsoft is on the verge of unleashing a new technology that will allow multiple children to play educational games online at the same time. By using multiple mouses which control multiple pointers, children will be able to work together in groups of up to five – all playing the same educational games online. This will allow greater classroom cooperation and improve group work.
