Filed under the "fast, furious and strangely mesmerizing" category, Tabuto
is an arcade action Flash game by NinjaKiwi
. Cards fall from the top of the screen at increasing speeds. Your job is to move the cursor over each one before it drops off-screen. The more you get in a row, the higher your score, but if you miss 20 cards it's game over. The goal is to stay alive as long as possible, which is much easier than it sounds. It's similar in concept to the Eyezmaze game Hatch
, as well as to the classic Atari game Kaboom!
Tabuto is surprisingly tough once you survive through five or six levels. Keep your cursor low on the screen and resist the urge to creep upwards to catch the cards earlier. Even for such a simple game, Tabuto is well-made and has a lot of style.
Cheers to Valarauka and Stephen for suggesting the game. =)
