The Dragon one was fun.

(Also, your ninth difference was sort of tricky.)

Ooh! I made it to page 40 of the high scores.

Also: test your awareness.

Alternate psychedelic play method: form a stereo image of the puzzle, then speed click through the differences (each discernible by a shimmery halo effect). Your goal is to place in the top 5 on the leader board within two attempts. For an enhanced sensory experience, play while listening to the Codpaste podcast. Triperific.

I am no fun at bars because of these matching games.
Sometimes at work when I am comparing printing passes, I pretend it is photo-hunt.

Kattullus, this may be the cleverest presentation of a post ever. Excellent idea and execution!

Yeah, when the two different scenes are side by side, crossing your eyes to make a single "3D" images reveals the differences.

Also, in the dragon game, at least, you can swap the pointer and the circle, by moving the pointer out of the side/version it's in. Whichever version the circle is in will be copied to the version with the pointer. As you can swap at will, you can determine which of each of the differences will be in the final, matching images

Is anyone else seeing the transparent boxes surround each of the differences in the Wizard one? Makes the game a little easy.

Stupid linux/flash.

Clever. A little bit too clever...

After doing the magic eye thing, I now have multiple top 20 scores and a throbbing headache.

I can't believe that in all my years of playing drunk photo hunt at bars, i never thought of doing the stereo thing before. I'm going to wow people with my elite skills tomorrow night.

I like dreams

it's a nicely hypnotic, sleepifying little game. i find it strangely soothing, somehow..

Well played, Kattullus.

All these games seem to run on the same (not different) framework, or as they call it, an engine. So it's a Difference Engine?

This is the kind of thing that addicts me.

It's just like Erotic Photo Hunt, but with dragons instead of 80s women in awkward poses! This is great.

I always find I'm too close to the screen to successfully do that, particularly for an extended period and without giving myself a raging headache.

I love photohunt. I just wish those machines weren't so damn expensive, even on the secondary market.

Running FF3 on Linux here, and am having no problems.
