Snow Cats

This is what the web is for, after all. X Snow Cats is that game, which was found on a random Japanese blog. It pits your 2D moggy against seven other felines, racing through a snowy course with the aim of finishing first, while pulling off as many somersaults as possible along the way.

It's not pure silliness though. There seem to be some pretty spot-on physics behind the deceptively simple graphics. Of course, I don't have an enormous grasp of what happens when a cat rides a tea-tray at speed in the real world, but the way they bounce around in this game certainly feels right - and presents quite a challenge to control.
