White knights get hoppy

Happy little puzzles using a chess knight's moves to change the white squares into other colors await those who click.

Nice game, but I ran out of skills and time on level 6 I think.

Pretty tough, because the boards change with each game. My best is 98270 so far.

I don't know what that was supposed to do, but man it was annoying on Firefox 1.0.7 with adblock. It brought up some lame-ass popup survey window, and then didn't work.

Would have been nice if it didn't keep locking up.

but they should make a version where you move a knight piece around the board to make all the annoying noises stop.

Great game, thanks

Nice except for the annoying buzzing sound on every mis-click.

You can mute it by clicking on the speaker icon on the bottom.

Or by clicking or turning the possibly round button in one of your speakers...

nkyad, I was talking about the speaker icon in the puzzle/game itself. There is a little speaker icon under the points table.

Mostly through level 8, 150,920 and still only at place 14.446.

Can somebody tell me if I'm going crazy?

The sound of kids cheering that you hear when you complete a level. Is there a kids calling "Daddy!" in the background just before it fades out?

I'm trying to play while my son is napping and I keep thinking he's calling me.

I'm waaaay too addicted too this game. I can get to level 11 pretty regularly, but only once have I passed it. It's nearly impossible. Best score so far: 381000.

Level 11, 306480, and you have to move the mouse almost faster than possible to get there. I really wonder how those people, with more than 1.5 million points on the top managed to get to level 25 or 26. Robots, maybe.

Finally passed level 12! Level 13, 456000. I think this is the end of the road for me.

Well, I can't pass level 1. 45 seconds expire, and the knights I see are in the Troyis logo. The board appears to be empty. I can't figure this out.

recursive, which os and browser are you using? Maybe it is just a matter of upgrading your flash plugin.
