LAFFY TAFFY Puzzle Game is a early 2000's game that was on the Wonka website located at wonka.com . It was a 2D browser drag and drop jigsaw puzzle game which could be played with Adobe Shockwave, most likely developed by Left Brain Games because they made a number of similar games for the Wonka website at the time. It was one of many games that used to exist on the website before being taken off the website sometime after 2007.


Web developers were able to embed the game on their own site because of a button underneath the game providing the HTML code to do so, but in reality only the game's loader would be copied to the other site, while the actual game content would stay on the Wonka website where it was eventually deleted. Primary Games, Fetchfido and FreeGameZone had the game on their websites, but again it was only a loader. Many other Wonka games were made available on the Left Brain Games website after being removed from the Wonka website and, as such, are still playable - but this one was not.

FreeGameZone supposedly offered a downloadable version of the game, but this wasn't a proper Projector - rather, this was just the loader embedded onto an HTML page and packaged in a compressed zipped file. This still would have required an internet connection to fetch the real game content from the Wonka website, and isn't any help in finding the game.

According to an archive of Fetchfido, the game was 384 KB in size. The game content itself was not captured at its original location on the Wonka website by the Wayback Machine.

Gameplay Features

The game consisted of eight jigsaw puzzles themed after different flavours of Laffy Taffy, each associated with a colour: Sour Green Apple (light green,) Strawberry (pink,) Grape (purple,) Banana (yellow,) Watermelon (green,) Blue Raspberry (blue,) Cherry (red) and Fruit Punch (light blue.) The puzzle pieces swayed around and only stood still when you put them in place and finished the puzzle. There was a time limit to completing the puzzles. The puzzles were not unlocked in order - rather, they were all accessible at the start of the game. There were lots of sound effects, and the game shared the same bright artstyle that other Wonka games on the website had - in fact, the flavours have the same character designs as in the Laffy Taffy 3D Pyramid game, which was also on the same Wonka website.

The description of the game from Primary Games, via Wayback Machine, was "These aren't your ordinary puzzles...they're moving! Choose one of the 8 puzzles and then click and drag the moving puzzle piece to the right side (if you can get it!)."

It's either Lost, Partially Lost or Existence Unconfirmed

Not *Most Likely Lost*

Wouldn't put my name in the article when it doesn't give new information. You can add contributors if you found media or part of the media, let's say someone has footage of the game, that's fine, but for discovering lost media?

I'll do that. I also hope that TomysShadow could help me with the article since he very well reminded me of it. I might also ask him for links for just the loading screens on like the Wayback Machine and whatnot.

Tomysshadow is more of an expert on programing games and game engines than me and he probably knows more about the game than me. I remember playing it but don't know every last detail.

I just asked Tomysshadow about some of the links that are just loaders to help me with this article. He hasn't replied yet but I'm hoping he will.

It is lost - not most likely. I've tried to find it, there's no mention of it anywhere but a couple of dead sites.

I added some more info. I don't know if it's enough to remove the tag but there's not very much that can be said. There isn't very much information on it, I just remember playing it.

I am pretty pleased for this being a lost media (besides two other possibly lost Wonka games of Holiday Treats Game and Spooky Nerds, and some of 3D Groove's games) that I had a personal experience with. I did use to play it back when it was on the Wonka website. I do like to hope with most lost media that they won't always be lost forever.

Does anyone know where you can play Wonka Holiday Treats Game and the Spooky Nerds game, because I'm not sure if their lost too like this game and I want to play those again. So if anyone has links to those two games, could you let me know? I want to do gameplays of those two games and I remember playing those and this puzzle game when I was little.
