Flash Games: Bloxorz, Cursor Invisible, Phit

Gaming

Every Friday, I present three or more browser-based games, all of which depend on the Adobe Flash Player and your web browser. All the games should work on Mac, Windows, Linux, and any other operating system that supports Flash. I'll tell you whether each game has music or sound, so you can adjust your speakers accordingly.

Today, three excellent games.

Bloxorz is a puzzle game in which the key is how you move.

Cursor Invisible looks amazingly easy, and it is. At first. Plates appear around the gaming area, and you click them to shatter them.

Phit reminds one of Tetris, but actually you start with a jumble of pieces on the top, and you need to arrange them to fit perfectly into the yellow area at the bottom.

Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
