Cat SledgingIt seems the popularity of d_of_i's blog, Dofi-Blog, has inspired the author to make available some previous work with Processing, and the best of the bunch is this Cat Sledging racer that pits the player against seven (7) other computer controlled sleigh cats.

Use the [Z] and [X] keys for control during the race. [Z] will lean the cat back and cause the sled to rotate counter-clockwise, while the [X] key leans the cat forward and will rotate the sled clockwise. Use these keys to perform somersault(s) to gain a boost in speed; best when performed over a hill that sends you airborne. Press the [R] key to retry the race from the beginning; press the [T] key to return to the game's main (title) menu.

For those who just like to watch, there is even an "Auto-play" mode that lets you watch the computer race against itself. Click.

Doesn't cat sledGing mean like...taking a sledge hammer and .. hitting a cat? I hope that game means cat sledding...

hahaha, momentum, that's what I thought at first. I thought it might have been a poor translation and had to look it up. Not so. Definition of sledge.

lol what's up with the giant cat?

Sooo much fun!
Got 1st place!! Time 1:6:1 (?) Nice game, glad it didn't have to do with hitting cats with sledge hammers.

Aww... bowlofnoodles, you only just beat me. I got 1:6:2 on my fifth try.

You should try the Block Breaker game--loads of fun!

Woo.. 1:5:3 ! Simple yet fun.
If you're having trouble, just watch the other cats for tips. :)

oddly enough i play this a lot. it took me a while to get the hang of the controls but it's not a bad sort of base game or something like that, i keep going back to it. best time so far is only 1.6.5, though.

I still haven't figured out how to play it more than once without closing the window and relaunching it from here. Can anyone help with that?

i got 1:1:6

beat that

lol

My best is 1:0:6. I won't quit until I beat one minute. The key seems to be getting into the "woop" section cleanly.

There is an even better version on the site:

It's called X Snow Cats and has better scoring among other improvements.

Thanks for providing the world with links to casual yet addictive games, Jay!

Okay, beat this! I just scored 0:58:8 on the old game. Like I said two months ago, getting through that bumpy section around halfway is the absolute key. I got a good bounce going in, and managed two spins on the entry. Lots of two-spin and three-spin jumps in that section, including one risky double back spin, and the rest was gravy! I could not have left more than a tenth of a second on the table. If anyone can beat that time, I salute you!

Love this game! My best is 1:2:1 and I can't imagine getting under the 1 minute....

I would love to see a captured video of someone playing this and showing all of us who can't get under 1:34 (so bad, I know) how it's REALLY done.
