Line Rider

It's called Line Rider, you draw a line with the mouse and a little guy
on a sled rides down it. It's great times, fun to make him wreck and go flying.

WARNING: Addictive. Don't start unless you have a few hours to kill.

There are also some cool videos of people's creations on YouTube.

It drives me crazy. I don't see how those people draw such straight lines. There must be something I am missing.

Kinda neat but you can't really do anything that great because of how easily he falls off the sled.

You can make loops. But it's hard with no eraser function.

That was amazing. I don't understand how when there is no eraser. Unless I'm missing something.

I think he just saves it and if he messes up he re-loads it.

The straight lines can be done easily: I've done them I just don't know how.

That method makes it pretty easy. By trial and error you can catch the guy mid-air doing some neat things. With a more advanced interface (say, like the Sodaplay constructor) this could be really cool.

Nice find Palaver. Probably used a stylus instead of a mouse and just traced a drawing after some trial and error.

For those that don't frequent VG Talk, this game is coming to the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Wii in spring.
