Free Children's Summer Games
Welcome to Chaz Rapley's Children's Summer Games Web Site where games can be downloaded free. This site is centred around my interest in developing simple games for young children, using the visual programming language Delphi. The games are developed from scratch so are original and aimed at exploiting the flexibility of computer-based games as well as being simple in concept and use. The games cannot be played on this site, they have to be downloaded to play on your own Windows PC. A link to my main games site for more free young children's games can be found at the bottom of this page.
This Summer game is called 'SUMMER PAIRS' and is a summer version of my 'Pairs' game which is based on the traditional 'matching pairs' game. A screen-shot of the game with the THEME of ACTIVITIES and near the start of the REGULAR LEVEL is shown below:
In this screen-shot the player has matched two of the cards with 4 clicks of the mouse. When you click a card its picture is exposed for a short time and you then have to click the card with the identical picture to remove them both. The object is to remove all the cards in the lowest number of clicks you can - so this entails remembering the position of previously clicked cards if you can. In the HARD LEVEL there is an extra row of cards added. Full instructions for play are given in the About panel of the game which can be downloaded free by clicking the link below.
For new visitors to the site I have included my summer themed games from previous years which you may like to download free and try out:
2016 - THE PEARL DIVER. This is a summer version of my 'Ghost Hunt' game and features a pearl diver in a cave with a torch. The keyboard arrow keys are used to guide the diver through the cave to find the pearl in the shortest time they can manage in LEVEL 1. In LEVEL 2 the diver has to be guided back to the entrance before the diver's air supply runs out! Full instructions for play are given in the About panel of the game which can be downloaded free by clicking the link below.
2015 - THE LOST BEE. This game is a summer version of my 'Arrow Maze' game and features a friendly but lost bee in a flower garden. The bee needs your help to find its way back to the hive. Arrow-heads hidden in the flowers around the bee show the possible ways that the bee can go and the arrow keys on the keyboard are used to move the bee. The object is to get the bee to the hive in the least number of moves. There is a target number of moves for each game. Full instructions for play are given in the About panel of the game which can be downloaded free by clicking the link below.
2014 - SUMMER FUN. This game is a 'spot the difference' type game with summer scenes. There are three summer scenes to choose from and three levels of difficulty for each scene. Full instructions for play are given in the game which can be downloaded free by clicking the link below.
2013 - SUMMER LINE-UP. In this game the mouse button is used to click a summer object to move it to the adjacent space and make a line of the same object. The object is to get as many line-ups as you can with the limited number of clicks avaialable. Line-ups can be made horizontally or vertically or diagonally across the two centre diagonals. There are two types of summer objects to choose from and two levels of play with target numbers of line-ups in each level. At regular intervals an immovable object appears to hinder progress. Full instructions for play are given in the game which can be downloaded free by clicking the link below.
2012 - BEACH CLEAR. Purple robots are used to clear the beach of rubbish. The aim is to clear the beach in the least number of moves of the robots. Using the keyboard arrow keys the robots move together so the sea walls have to be used to make one robot move relative to another. If a robot touches the sea it is lost into the sea.
