    Game 1: A large memory game with cards that re-shuffle themselves if you make a match. Find "bomb cards" to attack a monster that tries to kill you if you're too slow. Defeat the monster, and you'll be given a key that is saved onto your computer.

    Game 2: Successfully hit keys A, S, D, F in the randomly shown order several times to beat an opposing fighter. Defeat 5 enemies to download a key onto your computer.

    Game 3: Use 10 cubes to stack on top of each other. Stack them in a specific order so they glow all at once. Some cubes purposely glow with wrong combinations to throw you off. Find the right order and get a key.

    Game 4: Navigate through a maze of stars by jumping from star to star. Some stars are too far apart to jump though, so choose your path correctly. Reach the big star at the end and get a key.

    Game 5: Craft swords using a tetris-like grid that drops pieces composed of 5 blocks. Click and drag the falling blocks and fit them into your sword perfectly. The grid fills up though. If you let the blocks reach the top, you start over. Construct 3 swords and receive a key.

    Game 6: Press and alternate between the Left and Right arrow keys to sprint across a fantasy field. Reach the end and get a key. There is no challenge, just relax and go your own pace.

Feed it, nurture it, love it, and play with it. If it loves you enough, it will reveal the credits and thank you for playing.
