I learned about Iron Dukes thanks to a thread on Ars Technica’s forum (thanks, mojo-jojo!!).

3D Logic

3D Logic

Almost a week ago, Ars came through with another gem: a Flash-based game called 3D Logic by Alex Matveev made the rounds on the forum this weekend. The game is simple; the object is to connect pairs of like-colored squares. Red to red, orange to orange, etc. You may not cross colors over each other, […]
