NO more Google API... Simple captchas, no questions, no counting fruits, trees, flowers, fish, birds, and animals, no buzzo puzzles, no alien voices ... to cut long story short--- it is  just a beautiful and simple logic and straight forward captcha ... you can customize it to whatever you like... Even though Captchas are not the only option to slow down spam to Elgg sites, it is one of the defense mechanism that can be used to help slow down the robots from registering to your site.

 If you like this plugin, recommend it! Recommending it does not help me but will save time for the new users and elgg community members who are  searching for Elgg plugins...
