Hello! Well, after missing a few Fridays, Fun Friday is back. I think we might have taken the last game a wee bit too seriously and slowed… waaay…. down in how we perceived the world, but we’re all tuned up and ready to go.
This week’s game is a lot of fun. The game is called Drop A Beat, Giuseppe! created by Major Bueno a.k.a Benedikt Hummel and Marius Fietzek.
You play as a pianist, (pun fully intended) who, well…, really isn’t very good a playing the piano. The audience is clearly upset and begins to hurl all sorts of items at you. Eggs, shoes, boots, even the odd fish to two. But fear not! You can bat these items back into the audience by using the space bar to activate the piano lid to volley said items back into the crowd.
You move left and right by randomly mashing keys on the left and right of the keyboard. When you mash the keys, the piano tickles out a random tune to match, so you’ll understand why everyone is unhappy.
I don’t want to spoil the game, but there is more to it than just moving to the left and right and volleying items back and forth between you and the unhappy audience to rack up a high score. The key is to be observant to notice the minor details in order to discover a majorly cool ending. If you do that, you’ll scale to the top of the charts and discover what I’m writing about.
Until next week, enjoy!
CTC! Are you struggling in a class? Struggle no more. The Tutoring Commons in room 336 has tutors ready to help you in the following subjects:
Access the tutoring schedule on the Clark libraries website: http://library.clark.edu/?q=content/tutoring
Need tutoring help at home? Log on for 24/7 online tutoring assistance: http://eTutoring.org
If you’ve attended a library instruction session, chances are there’s a Class Guide for you. Librarians know that it can be hard to remember everything from a library instruction session, so we make it easy for you to review the content by putting the information in a Class Guide. Find Class Guides from the library home page > find > class guides, then scroll to find your course and instructor.
Even if your class didn’t come to the library, take a look to see if there’s a guide for a similar class. You never know what you’ll learn!
If you don’t find a Class Guide or you need additional help, you can always get help from a librarian — check out the options on the Ask a Librarian page.
Visit the Class Guides pages for notes from library instruction sessions
Currently at the library we have a poetry display by Tammy Boyer. The display features a haiku by Nikki Giovanni along with several books from our collection.

Summit is being updated overnight from 11pm on April 30th to 11am on May 1st. During this period of time the Summit requesting function will be unavailable.

Hello! So we are ending week three of spring term. Hopefully you are all settling into your spring routines and are ready for another small, fun diversion.
This week’s game is a bit of a puzzle style game that asks you to change your perspective; it’s called: 400 Years by scriptwelder.
This game is bit different than your typical browser game and that’s what makes it so special. Follow the prompts that appear as you play and then start to experiment. If you are observant and pay attention to the hints, you’ll be fine. Just don’t forget you only have 400 years to solve the puzzle, so don’t think like a short-lived human, think like something that can live for centuries.
Another wonderful aspect to this game is the soothing soundtrack. The music is by composer Kevin MacLeod and suits the game very well.
Until next week, have fun.

Hey, we’ve made it through another week, so it’s time to have a wee bit of fun. This week’s game is called Buttonx20 and it was created by Tom “NinjaDoodle” Vencel. You’re helping a little ninja get a key to open a door.
There are a total of twenty puzzles to solve before you an finish the game. I had trouble with one of the puzzles, but there is a hint button to use if you are really stumped. I’ll only say some of the puzzles require you to think beyond the keyboard as an input device.
I hope you enjoy the game and we’ll be back next week with more fun.
