Lava Crew

How to play Lava Crew:
Your in-game character holds a moss clump, which looks like this:

That is your "life". You also have several "extra lives" (spare moss clumps). You earn an extra life every 10,000 pts. You also get a bonus for every extra life you have remaining at the end of a level.

In the middle of the screen (island), you have a water puddle, which looks like this:

Your goal is to protect this at ALL costs! You may have extra lives remaining, but if you lose all your water, the game is over! Period! You only have ONE water puddle. So, protect it with your life... because if you fail to do that... your moss clumps are useless without moisture. Every time a Lava Beast touches the water, you lose 10% of your water and it shrinks a little. As long as you have water remaining, you're good. You also get a bonus for every % of water you have remaining at the end of a level.

Your enemies are called "Lava Beasts". They look like this:

They come out of the lava and head directly for your water puddle. They're very single-minded, so they will not divert from their goal, which is the elimination of your water supply. This makes them easy to kill, individually, but... there are lots of them! An endless onslaught of them... level after level! So, don't think it's going to be a walk in the park... or else you'll be pushing up daisies in the park!

In Simple (1st difficulty), tap on top of each Lava Beast and your moss clump will automatically move there, to intercept/kill it. Your moss clump will also automatically return to the water, when it's dried out. In successive difficulties, you need to touch/drag the moss clump where you want it to go. Be sure to return to the water from time to time as well to moisture up your moss clump, or it will dry up and you'll lose a life. There are many things we haven't mentioned on this page, for good reason. You'll discover them as you play. Enjoy!


General Information:
Press anywhere on the screen to load up your cowtapult. The longer you press, the more strength you'll get to shoot away the cow.
There's a strength indicator on the left side of the screen, which shows you how much power you've loaded up to your cowtapult. If you release the cowtapult when a cow is walking over it, it will send the cow flying.
Multihit - Hit more than one animal with the same cow.

Stargazer - Load the cowtapult up to max and successfully shoot the cow through the ring of fire.

Sharpshooter - Shoot a cow through the middle of the goal.

Cowstreak - Shoot three or more cows in succession through the goal.

TMG Shooter

General Information:
You maneuver your spaceship by dragging your finger across the screen. Shoot everything that moves while avoiding enemy fire!

At the bottom of the screen you can see DTT(distance to target). This is how far you have to go until you reach the end boss of the level.
Playing tips/hints:
Try to take out the bigger baddies fast before they can cause you any damage.

Kill enemies instead of avoiding them to earn more points.

High Voltage 2

General Information:
You are a yellow pulsating electrical current. It looks a bit like a snowflake. You steer the current with the mouse. If you watch the screen closely, you see the cursor as a small cross. The current will follow this cross when you move the mouse.

The objective of the game is simple. Take power-ups and avoid resistors to stay alive. When you've started a new game, you can see on the top of the screen how many units of current you've got. When all units are gone, you will lose a life. When all your lives and energy units are gone, it's game over.
Playing tips/hints:
Try to stay clear of the elephant heads' sight (move around a lot), as the rocket resistors tend to surprise you.

Move away from the middle when the rotating box explodes, to avoid the homing resistor.

If you're invincible and the drugged current appear, avoid him as he can still drug you, and you'll lose your invincibility.

When you're invincible, try to crash into both power-ups and resistors to get more points.
Trouble shooting/Performance tips:
If the game runs sluggish, try switching the background to either "Background picture" or "Flat colored background" in the preferences.

The game is not officially supported on anything older than system 10.5. It was however tested on both an Intel iMac and a G5 iMac with 10.4.11 installed, and it ran smooth on both.

NoseDive Prowl

General Information:
You maneuver your small spaceship with the mouse, and fire with the mouse button or space key. The objective could not be more simple - shoot everything that moves.
Playing tips/hints:
Try to take out the bigger baddies fast before they can cause you any damage.

Kill enemies instead of avoiding them to earn more points.
Trouble shooting/Performance tips:
If you're having trouble with clicking outside the window, use the space key instead of the mouse button to fire.
