Website Reviews - May 2019

What is it?
Incredibox is a website where people of all ages can create their own music. This fun and educational site, created by a French design company and musical group, allows users to build their own songs including effects, beats, melodies, chorus and voices. 

The Good 
The best part of the site is how easy it is to create different sounds. Each of the colour-coded musical options can be dragged onto the main screen and then a character appears and will begin to sing in the selected option. The characters take on the personality of their beat, including hats, glasses and different shirts. Once your composition is ready to go, it can be shared with your friends on social media or through email.

The Bad
A more in-depth tutorial would have been appreciated, as it takes a little while to find out exactly what you’re doing. It’s easy to make sounds, but more difficult to put them into a coherent, flowing rhythm that resembles a properly constructed song.
Draw a stickman, then guide him through a fantastic world of adventure. Using just your mouse and an inventory of on-screen pencils; draw elements, tools and weapons to solve puzzles and overcome obstacles. From drawing a rain cloud for growing plants to drawing an axe for chopping down a gate, you control all aspects of your environment.
This is a Google Maps-based trivia website game perfect for passing time during those long days in the office. See how well you know the world by answering questions and pinpointing the geographical location correctly. The closer you pin to the actual location, the better, as you only get a certain number of kilometres to start with. The number of kilometres away from the actual answer you are is the number of kilometres you lose, so the goal is to answer as many questions as you can correctly before they run out.
