Ferry Halim has, over the years, produced some of the most polished and most pleasant Flash games imaginable -- 'casual' in the sense of highly accessible and not particularly difficult, but typically using a handful of mechanics that you'd normally think as non-casual, and often with one little twist on the mechanics.
Drifting Afternoon is typical of his
ouevreoeuvre, a brief little game with graphics that remind me of the illustrations of Tasha Tudor, and a score that would not be out of place on an easy-listening radio station. You play a cute little animal bounding through the grass and leaping atop floating pastel balloons. Everything is done with the mouse, with left-click triggering a leap and the direction of the mouse pointer from your critter determining the angle of the jump; you earn points by leaping atop balloons, and more by leaping over intervening ones.
As is usually the case with the games at Orisinal, it produces a curious sensation of serenity and pleasure.
