Ladies and gentlemen, warm up your awwwww glands, if you please. (Psssst! They're next to your phalangebous!) Ferry Halim of Orisinal fame has created another game, you see, and we wouldn't want you to injure them! Featuring lush, storybook visuals, easy to pick up controls, and a one-button game of skill, Drifting Afternoon is a perfect little treat to fit right in to your day. Plus, a kitten! All together now:
Although it looks pretty windy out there, your intrepid little orange kitten has no trouble keeping up with your mouse as you guide him around the screen. Click somewhere, and he'll jump in the direction of your cursor. Those are the only controls! The object is simply to help him leap from one brightly coloured bubble to another as they float by. Each time you make a successful jump, the amount of points you earn increases. Falling to the ground resets the chain. If you jump over one or more bubbles and land successfully on another, you'll get a bonus. Just keep an eye on your time, and keep an eye out for special bubbles that can grant you a small time extension!
Like all Orisinal titles, Drifting Afternoon is designed to be short and sweet rather than deep and compelling. Most importantly, it's an extremely well made, family friendly game, and that's something we don't see enough of, in my opinion. Not only is Drifting Afternoon a gentle, adorable game, it's controls are so easy to master that anybody can pick it up, for as long or as little as they like. So if you're stuck behind a desk, inside when you'd rather be out, or even just looking for something to bring a smile to your face, let Drifting Afternoon carry you away for a minute or three.
Thanks to WelshGuy for sending this one in!
