Windows 8 Puzzle Game: Garbage Away

Garbage Away is a free puzzle game for Windows 8 and 8.1 in which the object of the game is to put the garbage in the correct garbage can. In the game, there are four garbage cans and the garbage falls from the top of the screen. At the very top of the screen, the name of the color is listed inside a box of some color. The twist is to put the garbage in the color of the box, and not in the color listed. For example, “green” may be written at the top of the screen in a red colored box, but that means that you need to toss the garbage in the red garbage can, and not the green garbage can. The text is there just to confuse you.

Garbage Away is available for free from the Windows App Store.
