Top Mac OS X Dashboard Widget Games

1. SudokuWidget


In this variation of the classic number puzzle game, you’ll have random puzzles with four different levels of difficulty. You also have the option to reveal an incorrect answer, use “pencil” marks for temporary numbers, time the games so you can see how much better (or worse) you are getting, show high scores, use blank puzzles and many more. All we can say is, spare a big chunk of your time to enjoy this one.

2. Mars Explorer


At first, I thought that this one was not a Dashboard game. Widgets, to me, are simple mini-applications with a certain function. But the size and the complexity of Mars Explorer go beyond that.

The description of the game goes like this: Ascend massive volcanoes, race atop elevated plateaus, splash through lava seas, and execute aerobatic stunts using deployable wings while playing laser tag with your friends over the internet!

What more can you ask?

3. Treshold


This one is a multi-dimensional maze program. A classic puzzle with increasing levels of difficulty: once you have mastered the two-dimensional mazes you may progress to three-dimensional mazes and so on, up to six dimensions.

4. Space Fighters and Asteroids


For those who love spaceship adventures, why not try these two widgets? Both are variations of the classic “Asteroids” game. Just remember not to destroy your keyboard.

Your job is simple: group bubbles with similar colors together and get a score as high as you can. But don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the rule, this one is very, very addictive.05 bubble bazinga   10 Really Fun Dashboard Widget Games For Mac

Want to know how good you are in creating a new world? Maybe you’ll get a clue by playing this widget game.

Chrysalis-B is a real-time causal pace evolution widget/game. You start with nothing but plants and dirt within a glass chamber. By figuring out the right temperature that promotes growth/evolution, you must guide an unknown species through several stages of evolution until it hopefully evolve into the Elders.

If you love to drive like crazy, get crazy with this one. The goal of 3D Crashdrive is simple: have fun. It is a freeroam race/stunt game. You can play around on your own, but better yet: you can also play it in multiplayer mode. You can play together with friends or random players from all around the world and compare your records and score.

9. Missile Command


A remake of the classic arcade game. I played this back in the 80′s on the big machine with a large ball to control the anti-missile circle. This game is also featured in one of the episodes of Chuck. Even though much smaller in size, this widget version isn’t any easier than the original version. At least, not to us.

10. Crate mania


There are many first-person shooter multiplayer games out there. To stand out among the masses, one must have something special. Crate Mania twists the common scenario a little by giving players the ability to disguise themselves as crates.
