Some minor issues:


"REH" is not an english word, "LAMA" should be spelled LLAMA "FAULT" is the only non-animal.

Maze: Typo: "comming" should be "coming"

"Lama" is a word, it's a Tibeten Buddhist Priest; the most well known of which would be the Dalai Lama

"The one-L lama, he's a priest. The two-L llama, he's a beast. And I will bet a silk pajama: there isn't any three-L lllama!" ~Ogden Nash

Nash later appended the footnote "The author's attention has been called to a type of conflagration [fire] known as a three-alarmer. Pooh."

> The two-L llama

And from my understanding in Quechua this was pronounced something like “lyama”.

I was also confused by 'Pard'. Google suggests its a fictional animal from medival times, but its very obscure. Another confusing one was 'Wal', which I have never heard of and doesn't look like an English word.

Another small thing to note is that once the monsters start to get really fast on the maze game, they can travel right through the player without triggering death

I have to say though, I love the response times, its extremely fast, a joy to use. It also looks like it would work great on a touch screen

Thank you for the valuable feedback. I am not an English native speaker.

Pard (n.) 1. Archaic for "leopard". 2. Texan for "partner".

“MEERCAT” should be “MEERKAT”

Or perhaps a mere cat

reh appears to be defined as a salty surface crust found on the soil in parts of India


I think there is a bug in the Mastermind game. Somehow the dots at the right are all white now, no black ones appear anymore.

Edit: I think this happens if you press OK at the start without changing the default color combination.

That just means you guessed the colors, but they're in the wrong positions.

I don't understand. Just now I had three white dots and one black. How is this even possible?

Only three black dots black and one white would not be possible.

Sorry mixed it up, thought that white means correct color at correct position. I am obviously getting old.

That's excellent. This gives many ideas of small programs to develop with our childs. Why introduce a new language ? Do anyone know similar sites based on javascript ?

This is so green and I was so focused that when I switch tab, all colors were different (like optical illusion).

I would appreciate you change the colors but it works well !

amazing!! teachers can use tablets or ipads & choose a list of apps/games that are useful for students, that too without any technical skills! https://scalefusion.com/android-kiosk-mode

Nice for teaching your ai reasoner too

Probably I'm stupid, but how to play these games, only familiar with memory and hangman...

There was a bug with "Edit this game with easylang.online". This is fixed.

nice language! great examples! very simple, very intuitive! GREAT WORK!

Did you create Easylang?

It seems that way though I'm unsure too--check this link: https://easylang.online/apps/easylang.html

In firefox, I get a partial page.

In console, there is a warning as "no wasm support" -- easy.js

This means that your Firefox unfortunately does not support WebAssembly (Wasm), which is necessary for these games. Actual versions of major web browsers support WebAssembly by default.

It works perfectly fine in my Firefox (68.0.2, currently latest stable). Perhaps GP is running ESR or some other old version.
