This alliance between the classic toy and the sci-fi movie franchise blends the unique world and designs of Lego play materials with the characters, stories, and vehicles of the prequel eras of the Star Wars universe.
Play the most memorable and exhilarating scenes from The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and the forthcoming Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, including pod racing on Mos Espa, the repelling of the droid onslaught in the Genosian arena, and Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon's fatal fight with Darth Maul. As you progress through the game, you unlock many new characters, including those from the Dark Side, and you must switch among them to solve puzzles using their special abilities.
This PC demo lets you play as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn in the opening sequence from The Phantom Menace.
It's not surprising someone combined the story and settings of the geek-tacular Star Wars franchise with the nerd-licious Lego aesthetic. What is surprising is how much fun Lego Star Wars offers, with the ability to switch among a wide variety of characters from the prequel trilogy, including the oft-maligned yet flexible Jar Jar Binks.
The demo consists of one short mission from the full game and an exploratory mode. In the mission, you control Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, and the silver android that looks like C-3PO (yes, I know it's TC-14) through the beginning scenes of The Phantom Menace. Don't worry: Jar Jar is nowhere to be seen--yet. The controls are keyboard-based, logical, and different for each character. Attack or defend with one key, then use another for special moves, which for the Jedis involves the Force. There's a special thrill in using telekinesis to rearrange Lego doors and contraptions into new objects, not to mention throwing small droids willy-nilly. After you've finished the mission, you can switch among 10 characters and explore the federation ship at your leisure. If you're a fan of either Star Wars or Legos, be sure to give this demo a look.

We are so excited for your child to start enjoying ItzaBitza that we are giving you the first playset (of five available) free with no time expiration. What makes ItzaBitza so different from any other children's game is that it introduces the concept of "Living Ink," which means kids draw a requested object and when they do, that drawing comes alive t and it is incorporated into a story. Because it is so cool to watch their drawing come to life, kids are motivated to read the next part of the story. Children who can use the mouse are AMAZED when what they draw comes to life in the game. Your child begins by choosing a "Sketchy"-either male or female-and then is asked to draw various objects - such as a house, sun, tree, cloud, etc. - for the Sketchy using the mouse. The game helps not only with mouse-handling skills but it also allows children to refine their technique. Regardless of how the objects look, the Sketchy will adapt them to his or her own use, either growing or shrinking in order to fit properly into the house your child has drawn, for example. The reading in the game is also well thought out. Because kids are reading for a purpose (to find out what they can draw next) and they then cross-reference the words with visual objects they have drawn, they are reading for meaning. This software provides great motivation to read. In addition to the artistic and reading comprehension aspects of ItzaBitza, it also encourages problem-solving skills. Sketchy will issue simple instructions to your child and then it's up to your child to figure out how to complete the task that Sketchy has set. For example, once your child has drawn a tree for Sketchy, the child will be asked to find ten baby birds. It may take a few tries until your child learns that the baby birds can be created by clicking on the birds flitting around the tree, which causes them to drop eggs that then hatch into baby birds. This can lead to some frustration but it also encourage persistence. When your child is able to figure out how to complete a task, she feels a real sense of accomplishment and victory. More than anything else - ItzaBitza is a really fun game to play.
Chicken Invaders puts you at the forefront of a battle against invading intergalactic chickens, bent on revenge against the human race for our oppression of Earth chickens. In this episode, the chickens have hatched a devious plan to block out sunlight and freeze Earth to death.
It's up to you to travel around the galaxy in order to piece together an ancient artifact and (quite literally) save the day.
Hero's log, Stardate 8008.5
As the last intergalactic chicken invaders flee our Solar System and lingering feathers still smolder in interplanetary space, I ease up on the trigger and wipe the sweat from my brow. My work here is done.
Saving the world sure works up an appetite. I'm plotting a course for the nearest Space Burger. I think I'll have the spicy chicken wings tonight. Or perhaps their galaxy-renowned chicken pie? Ah, the choices of a hero are never easy.
Suddenly, I am yanked back to reality by the whine of my trusty spaceship's automated warning system. Why are all my dashboard lights flashing red? Why has the Earth darkened so? And why does it all have to happen just as I'm about to eat?
Looks like tonight's dinner will have to wait.
