@Cassibsg - not me, I'm right handed, but an interesting hypothesis!
@Mandle - nice idea, will try to do something like that.  I'll add buttons to turn both on or off though.

Thanks everyone - I had basically expected this little project of mine to pass by completely unnoticed!

Btw, my little one was able to almost solve the 1st puzzle by him self! (nod) He found all the 4 different shapes, but only until I asked what color the eye was he found the last one. (laugh) He found the mouse cursor hard to use, mostly cause he's used to using the windows pointer... Second screen was harder for him... found the "bridge" right away, but the lines I had to help him, and he never noticed the clouds... (roll)

Yep, I'm a lefty  :grin:

Guess it makes sense to mark the picture closer to your hand holding the pen/pencil... (nod)
CaptainD is just an odd one them. (laugh)

Guess maybe if you were taught to mark them on one side, then makes sense to mark them on that side forever, since you already used to it. ;)

Hope your little one enjoyed it!  I will definitely make a few more really easy ones.  This (and my other edutainment project) seem to be struggling to stay at the level they were originally intended to be, keep wanting to add slightly more difficult / complex elements to them.

Can't argue with that! :-D

I decided against that... I mean, what if someone different wanted to have a go? (roll)

Also, I've added to my To Do list an option to change between cross-hairs and a cursor.

Thanks again for the feedback. ;)

Errmmm.... think you misunderstood me... I didn't meant not to give the option left/right, I was just making an observation on the way we normally mark these "spot the differences" on paper. ;)

If anyone would like to contribute a scene or two from one of their own games, please PM me. 

Basically all I would need is:

The original image (140x140px), one with the differences, and preferably one with the differences highlighted - you don't need to stick to 5 differences btw, but try not to have them too close together.

I'll try to get a new version out soon.

This is one of those games where improvements can be made and additions added at anytime..

"Cute game that was fun. Kids would like it. Took me back a few years. Short but sweet. Recommended."

Heh, hope it's not too haunting... I was going for "nostalgic" but things always end up a little darker than I intend ;)

If anyone's small child is creeped out by the music I'll do something a little brighter, like this
