How do I like to start the day? With a spectacular orgy with a lustful Martian pantheon. However, I’m prepared to settle with a quick flashgame. Today’s is Up Down Ready from the charmingly named Sword Lady & The Viking which just won Best Design In A Game at the recent Freeplay indie festival in Melbourne. Well done them. Basically, it’s a string of mini-games all which you control with the up and down arrows. I’m not too fond with the really boring one which comes first every time. But then again, it features a level based on MC Hammer’s U Can’t Touch This video and has another one where – I believe – it plays a chipcore version of Haddaway’s “What Is Love?” (which always reminds me of the opening gag in Consolevania’s Independent Day special). So it’s hard to be churlish. If your lustful Martian pantheon have left you hanging again, you can play it here. If they haven’t, go orgy!
