AlexPorcupine PopHelp feed some peckish porcupines in pursuit of the perfect Philly "sammich" in Porcupine Pop, a charming action physics puzzler from Duck Next Door. Strap a porcupine into the slingshot and aim by clicking and dragging with the mouse. Clear a stage of balloons in as few rodents as possible to pass it; clear everything using only one porcupine to ace it. Different color balloons affect your prickly pal's trajectory in different ways, with some bouncing them upwards or backwards, and you'll have to contend with rogue air currents and pesky clouds to boot.

Though the concept may be familiar, the adorable graphics, catchy music, and impressive 50 level length ensure there's a lot to love here. The game also does a good job of introducing new mechanics just as things begin to border on repetitive and there's a neat little feature of marking where you shot your last porcupine from, allowing you to easily tweak that almost-perfect previous shot. If you ace the Normal difficulty quick, try out Expert for tougher versions of puzzles with one fewer porcupine to work with. Plus, you can brush up on your geography as the little guys bounce their way across changing American backdrops on their quest towards the City of Sammich-y Love.

As an advocate of quilled animal-based flinging games, am I wrong to point out that the animals being flinged (flung?) are pygmy hedgehogs, not porcupines?

I like this game, nonetheless.
