Golden Classic: River crossing game

Tuesday, July 21. 2009

This attached flash games is a classic river crossing puzzle, since the swf is in some asian language, here are the rules:

  • the raft only carries two people

  • the raft may only be steered by father, mother and police officer

  • the thug mustn't be left alone with a member of the family without the police officer

  • the mother mustn't be alone with one (or two) of the sons without the father

  • the father mustn't be alone with one (or two) of the daughters without the mother

Can you help the crowd to cross the river?

Raildance Express

InterRail – a dream of my youth, which I never managed to accomplish. Travelling through Europe with all the freedom you can think of can be a real adventure. Unluckily I never made it to do InterRail :-( So the least thing I can do is, to write about it. To promote this dream the the marketing people of are going modern ways. They created a flash game, and a competition to promote their product.

The game called “Raildance Express” puts you into the role of Bruno who is going out for an InterRail travel. It’s Bruno’s challenge to travel along possible routes and collect as many points as possible. You get points if you manage to visit a fast variety of cities throughout Europe, but also if you manage to hit certain hot spots, where you can meet fellow “Raildancers”. This could be quite a strategic challenge. But the game is not a preliminary strategic game, but merely relies on skill. In each level Bruno has to run through his current city, avoid obstacles or jump at the right moment to gain speed, to be able to choose the next train he wants to ride on. This has to be achieved by sliding through under conductors.

So far I took two turns playing the game, but I didn’t finish the second go, since I got quite frustrated after not getting onto the right train for the second time. This is the main disadvantage of this neat game. It’s the same for 15 levels… I must confess that I was really curious in discovering the slight graphic differences between the cities. You can also learn something about the geography in Europe, since you’ll get a map with the major cities in between the levels, but the game less addictive than I expected. But there is a reason to put some efforts in playing the game – until the end of September the weeks best player will win an InterRail ticket!

Even if the flash game can’t fascinate you, there is more beyond this campaign, that might interest you. The Weblog InterRail Station provides information and stories about InterRail travel. Have a look if you are up for some wanderlust!

There is also a nice story about the evolutionary process of that game (Don’s Blog also writes about it). It all started with Matt Harding (Last week SPON wrote about him), who got famous by traveling through the world and shooting dancing videos at prominent places. Some Europeans took Matt as their example and created their own video: “Dancing InterRail”. This video inspired the creators and got them to create Raildance Express”.

No, I'm not Anti-American, no need to head homeland security.. I think that song and flash is funny, though :-) The song has been performed by Denis Leary, the flash has been added by DoktorBorn.
