sunday game

It's Sunday. The Oscars are on shortly. You want to relax. You want something cute and funny and colorful, and if it's a situation where you can't lose no matter what, all the better. (We may actually be talking about me more than you here, but stay with me.)

This is why you need to play Sushi Cat.

The adventure starts with a tubby blue kitty trying to figure out the heft it would take to be united with the pink toy kitty of his dreams, and before you know it, you're dropping him on pieces of sushi while a variety of harmless shenanigans and jolly music (at one point sounding a lot like the Clash, I swear) spur you on. Just fall on 30 pieces per stage. Don't make it? You get to repeat the stage over and over till you do. But you'll usually get all 30 right off the bat.

According to Wikipedia's entry on Kawaii/Cuteness in Japanese Culture, "Other translations of kawaii can include adorable, precious, lovable, or innocent." Sushi Cat is utterly kawaii. And I feel cheerful all over now.

We were glad to have a smile, since we just read some sad news about cats right before reading your post. Well, we got to Sushi Frenzy, and that helped. Thanks...

Oh, I am so sorry whenever there is sad news about cats anywhere. Glad to help bring cheer.
