Jeff Weeks, the author of SnapPea, has written some new educational games this year that are highly worth trying out:

  • A new version of his classic Torus Games for iPhone and iTouch.
  • A new set of Hyperbolic Games, including a maze, pool (very challenging), and soduku. (For OS X and Windows)


  1. There seems to be a labeling mistake in one of the games. Under the topology menu, what he calls a torus is really the 2-torus tiled by hexagons in the euclidean plane.

    • No, it’s a torus.
