Default Archna's Free Game of the Week: Duck, think outside the flock

25 levels for you to swim through. The first few will take you no time, but they get progressively harder.

Link to the game: Duck, think outside the flock

Don't forget to send me your top suggestions for games! Puzzle games are my faves but you can beat a good old platform game! If you want your game in the Moneysaving tip email freegame@moneysavingexpert.com

Note from Martin: Why it's Archna's Free Game of the Week

You'll notice that it's Archna's free game of the week, much like it's Andrea's Freebies. MSE Archna is a stalwart of the team, and in charge of making sure everything's organised, sorted, collated, checked, researched and generally spiffing in the e-mail - as well as being a seriously good researcher.

Sadly though, I noticed that occasionally she loses focus and catch her playing the games that we put at the end of the e-mail. She persuaded me this was part of her 'testing work' - so now it's an official part of her job. She gets to choose the games each week! Blame her if they're no good (and as for why her name's in pink.... I'm really not sure!)

Hi, that link took me to some cricket game, but I searched for and found the game, which was quite fun (can you tell I'm supposed to be working?!)

I like it - it's the quietest 20 minutes I've had since the school holidays started

Between myself, and my 7 and (almost) 5 years olds, we got to level 25 - and now we're stuck.

Thanks for highlighting this brilliant game, I know that Bart the game's author will be thrilled you appreciate him so much.

I can't beat level 25 at all. The game plays perfectly, and it's impossible to force a win in noughts and crosses against perfect play

Got it. The whole game was fantastic except level 25 which was just a matter of finding the one game path in which the computer makes a mistake, which just wasn't fun Other than that, I'm very impressed. I like games which need no instructions

Definitely one of this columns better picks!

level 24 took ages!

Solution for level 25 below, written in white so highlight to read:

first pick bottom row left, computer goes in the centre.

then pick top row right, computer picks top left.

then pick bottom right, you now have two options to win either middle row right or bottom row centre.
