For those that like puzzles and micro controllers...

You are given a simulated MSP430 based electronic lock that you have to hack. Personally, I think it is very well done. The first two challenges are pretty easy, but I get the feeling it is going to be quite addictive. It is definitely a good introduction into why it is so hard to secure a device the end user has complete access to.

It's kind of a shame because I think this kind of game is a really cool concept, and a good way to go for educational games, but I think this one starts out a bit high-level for the neophyte.
