System: Xbox 360 (XBLA)

You may not think that a game that, for all intents and purposes, looks like a 2.5D Excitebike may have that much to do with using your head, but you’d be wrong. While the difficulty curve starts out slow, this all-physics puzzler quickly moves from simply trying to angle your bike to properly land a jump to making hundreds of attempts to bypass a single obstacle, like trying to mount a vertical 80 degree hill or landing both wheels on top of a large grounded pipe. Maddeningly challenging.
