Fourth Floor Presents: Low-Cost Web Tools

Are you looking for inexpensive or free tools to help streamline and grow your business?  If you are, this is the workshop for you!

Captain McFinn’s Games Launch!

We’re happy to report that the games we developed for Captain McFinn have now launced. Captain McFinn’s is an ocean-themed gift shop & educational show presented by Captain McFinn himself & friends, located in the Greater Youngstown area. Featured there are sing-a-longs, aquarium events, puzzles and so much more.

The requirements of these games were to be aimed at the same crowd that would frequent the gift shop, fit in with the style of the new fully-Flash website they are launching complete with these games and of course to be easy and fun to play. Fueled by the educational and fun spirit of Captain McFinn’s, we developed entertaining games that would push kids to use their motor skills, their memory and their logic, puzzle-solving abilities. Captain McFinn’s was incredibly happy with the games and had this to say about our work with them:

[We] loved the games and [we are] very happy you guys will continue to create new games and help us with the website. We really appreciate everything you guys have done so far.

Check out the games on the Captain McFinn’s site (http://www.captainmcfinn.com/) featured under the ‘Fun Zone’.

First of all, I’d like to applaud Mars for taking [...]
