1UP is a great Flash Web toy from Tanaka U over at Nextframe. In a twist on traditional scoring, the 1UPs you collect are representative of your progress while coins and points are a means to that end.
Grab the monster with the mouse and shake coins out of him, or fling him against a wall. On each bounce you'll gain points and a scoring multiplier will increase, so throw him as hard as possible! 1UPs are earned for each 100 coins and every 50,000 points. I had some trouble with the right wall; on three occasions the monster got stuck inside it. Sometimes he will slowly drift out on his own but, with some persistance, you can pull him out. In addition, grabbing the monster when he is near the ceiling is more difficult than it has to be, due to the fact that only his head is clickable.
Select the first option on the main menu to play without a time limit. In this mode you're free to toss the monster around until you get bored, but if you want a little more game with your 1UPs try the second selection, where you're given 30 seconds to rack up as many lives as possible. A short online high score list is available for the most gifted monster tossers.
1UP is wonderfully tactile and remains fun far longer than one might expect. Tanaka definitely has a great ear; the maddingly repetitive carnival soundtrack is somehow appropriate, and the chaotic mass of bleeps and points produced as the monster rapidly bounces around the room is simply perfect.
