WARNING: ADDICTIVE GAME ALERT! RUN AWAY NOW TO SAVE YOURSELF!!!
Alright, you were warned.
I was introduced to Dolphin Olympics 2 yesterday and now I'm completely hooked. I can now safely say that I hate my friends Pei and Josh for telling me about this awesome game.
Dolphin Olympics 2 is a "see how high you can get" game. Using the arrow keys, you can move your dolphin in the water and when you jump out of the water you can rotate and spin to gain points, a la Tony Hawk style. The spin on this game though is that with every trick and nice entry you make into the water, you gain more speed. Then, if you jump out of the water again fast enough to continue your chain, you'll gain even more speed.
But the game doesn't stop there. While deep in the sky and space, you can ride on different starslides and use their arcs to bounce yourself even higher into space, past the moon, mars, and all the way to friggin' Pluto (and beyond that even >.<). The game seems simple enough, and it is. At least, to learn how to play.
To make it to the different planets will require hours of fine-tuning your jumps and entries, and damnit, this thing is massively addictive. It's quite possibly one of the most fun and simple flash games I've ever played. If all casual games had this amount of hidden depth (that also require insane skill), I would support them more.
