Mahjongg3D ist eine hübsche Version von Mah Jongg. Die dreidimensionale Ansicht lässt sich mit der Maus drehen und erlaubt so den Blick auf das Spielbrett aus alternativen Winkeln.

Zetrix ist imho der beste Tetris-Klon, mit einer für dieses Spiel spektakulären grafischen 3D-Umsetzung, 4 Schwierigkeitsgraden (Einfach, Normal, Schwer, Unmöglich) und speziellen Teilchen, die entweder das Spielfeld unter Wasser setzen bzw. trocken legen, den Punktestand erhöhen oder auch schonmal explodieren können. Ein super Feature am Rande: wer während Zetrix seine eigene Musik hören will, der kann seine MP3's ins Zetrix-Verzeichnis kopieren! Zetrix ist natürlich auch im einfachen Modus wie das normale Tetris spielbar.
