In first grade (it was definitely in 2010 or 2011), I remember playing some sort of two-dimensional autorunner-platformer game where you play as a brain with legs on an obstacle course. There were definitely hurles you had to jump over.

The background was blue/light purple, while the objects in the foreground were all solid black. I am about 40% sure it had some sort of score counter. All the colors were completely solid.

You played as a brain with legs. Either the brain or brain-like structures that somehow could move appendages of some sort ate circular objects of some sort.

It was very likely running on Adobe Flash. It was not NeuroVoider (completely wrong year, not at all similar) or any of the Run games (I have played them, definitely not the same.) I don't think it was on PBS Kids. It was in America, definitely on an English-language site. I don't think it was explicitly educational, but the site was probably supposed to be, as my teacher approved of this game.

It looked a bit like this:

  • Any recollection of the websites you used to play on? – Jenayah Feb 3 at 17:57
  • @jenayah my teacher let me play it on a school computer, no memory of what site – Named Feb 3 at 17:57

    Could it be that it wasn't a brain and was actually some kind of stick figure? I remember they were pretty popular a long time ago. Also, if it was a browser game, it was 100% a flash game – Moacir Feb 7 at 16:26
  • I also found this website: learn4good.com/games/index.htm, which totally look like a website a teacher would trust to let students play. They date it since 2003, so it matches the year you accessed them – Moacir Feb 7 at 16:37
  • @moacir any idea what that game was callled? – Named Feb 7 at 20:00

While I am reluctant to post this as an answer, I am very confident that you may be misremembering the solid color part and the game is actually Feed the head (The link does not work for me because I have no flash here)

However on this Wikihow there is a step-by-step guide that kinda matches parts of your description

The background was blue/light purple... could move appendages of some sort ate circular objects of some sort.

And also: Hurdle jumping!

  • Glad to help! If you like that game style you may also like Windosill that is on steam from the same devs – Moacir Apr 8 at 14:05
