Line Rider

Draw a line, hit play and a guy on a sled rides the line. That's it.

So why is it that I find this mindless toy highly amusing and absurdly addictive? I can't say.

However, it's not as simple as it looks on this video and others. (You can search YouTube for Line Rider and get dozens of hits.) Too steep, the dude falls off or spins upside down or slams into a wall. (Which can be amusing, as well.)

Entertainment doesn't come any cleaner and simpler than Line Rider.

Warning: Highly addictive.

This just in: Line Flyer is a rip-off of Line Rider with two differences - a Radio Flyer wagon instead of a sled and . . . an UNDO feature!
