Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails
It may have come out of nowhere, but Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails is great, a surprisingly fun and unique game. The presentation may be a little no frills, but the game is a good mix of platforming, shooting, and puzzle solving, fast paced and challenging. It's smartly designed, and while I wish there were more modes, what's there is definitely worth experiencing.
The decent core concept winds up being entirely buried under a mountain of frustrating, annoying levels and pointlessly difficult tasks that suck the fun out of the game. It really seems like it would have worked better as a middleware physics engine, because it certainly doesn’t work as a game.
