Hourglass Problem is a simple but challenging flash game in which you are given two hourglasses. One of them has 7 minutes and the other has 11 minutes. The objective of the game is to measure 15 minutes in the first part and 24 minutes in the second one using only those hourglasses given. If you don't manage to solve the first problem, you won't be allowed to continue with the next one, and your score will be zero. You will only get some score, if you solve at least one of the two problems. You should try several times, and if you still don't manage to figure out the solution, you can click on the link provided on the instructions to get some tips or to see the solution.

Once the game is over, you will be shown your score and you will be able to publish it on three popular social sites, namely Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, and you can even share it by email. The game features very simple graphics and sounds, and nice music. The volume of the sounds and music can be adjusted from the Options menu, and the game can be played in full screen and directly from your web browser.

In short, if you are looking for a challenging game to keep your mind busy for a while, Hourglass Problem may be good for you.
