Pandora and a creenshot of the game Jooleem
This content is also available in Italiano Italiano

Jooleem is a simple yet extremely addictive puzzle game. There is only one rule: click on four marbles of the same color that form a rectangle. Time is constantly running out, but you can earn time (and points) by forming rectangles. The larger the rectangle, the more time and points are won. Jooleem is free and open source software.
