That’s Totally Random #12: Chasm (A Free Casual Puzzle Flash Game from 2002)


Before Children (BC) I had a lot more free time and I played a lot of casual games.   Free, of course.   My two favorite places to find games was jayisgames and miniclip.     One day I stumbled upon a cute little puzzle game called Chasm.

You are Joe, a platypus who was volunteered to help out your town Chasmtown.   Something is wrong with the pipe that diverts water to the generator and the town needs it to restore electricity and irrigation.    You must, through a series of clever puzzles, figure out how to bypass the break in the pipes and divert the water to the town.       There are a series of pipes and levers and precarious ledges to navigate.    While the game isn’t terribly difficult, there are a few places where you really have to think about how to get to places.  It may take a while to figure them out.       One particularly challenging part will have you as mad at the Kookabura as Joe is.  You’ll know it when you get to it!

The animation is very clean and cute.     Though I’d advise you not to look at the available walkthroughs, if you have trouble with finding the right spot to click the TAB key is your friend.

    Sound fun but I will not try it out because I don’t want to get hooked!

    This may serve as a good diversion. I played too much gta v online these last few days (well, just mostly trolling those noobs 🙂 )
