The I of It [A Week of Time Wasters]

This week I’m posting five days worth of insidious browser-based time-wasters: little games that will make that coffee break vanish faster than Fr. Z at a Liturgical Dance Workshop. 

It looks more like a segment from Sesame Street than a game, but don’t be fooled. The I of It is a wonderful little puzzler with simple graphics and some clever twists. The goal is to navigate the letter I through geometric puzzles in an attempt to find the letter T. The A and D keys move the I left or right, while the W and A keys make the letter taller or shorter. By compressing the I to fit in tight spots and extending it to reaching out of the way places, you work your way through the obstacles to the goal. There’s more here than meets the … okay, I won’t say it. Play it at various sites, including www.armorgames.com and www.kongragate.com.
