By now most regular readers of this blog should know I like playing puzzle games.  That’s why many of my weekly recommended web app games are mind-challenging puzzle solvers.  This week’s featured web game is yet another word puzzle game.

No, this is not that kind of find-the-words game I introduced before.  Playing this game, Qbox, gives me not only pleasure but also knowledge.  I could learn famous quotes of people.

QBox – Move Tiles to Find Out Quotes

In this game, quotes are grouped by time, Old Times, Middle Ages and Modern Time.  I do not have knowledge about old things so I chose modern time.

Qbox - Levels

Each letter of the quote is a separate tile which is movable.  You move a tile by swapping it with another one vertically above or below it.  In other words, you cannot move tiles horizontally or diagonally.  If you found all correct alphabets of a word, the color of the whole word would be changed.  Your goal is to reveal the word in the shortest time.

ChromePlay Charlie Sheen

You know Charlie Sheen?  I like Two and a Half Men, unfortunately he’s not there anymore.  But somebody created a game called Charlie Sheen: Winning, which is as crazy as Charlie.  The whole game is about killing, you drive a car to kill everything living organism on the road, except hot chicks who should be invited for a ride.  You get scores by killing and getting girls.  You can hear the voice of Charlie in this game, probably extracted from his shows.
