Full Ace Tennis is an impressive project for an indie developer; a serious tennis sports sim. It's in 3D -- low polycount by modern standards, but quite sufficient to impart a sense of verisimilitude -- and with a physics engine that does a good job of replicating the look and feel of the actual game.
Simon Read's New Star Games specializes in sports games where you manage not a team but the career of an individual athlete; the New Star Soccer series demonstrates the virtue of this, providing a style of play quite different from either the high-res "you are there" gameplay of conventional sports games or the spreadsheet-like play of sports management games.
New Star Tennis is his latest outing; as the name implies, you're a tennis player on the international circuit. You plan activities week by week, including training, participating in a tournament, relaxing by playing minigames (darts, kart riding, going to the casino or betting on the horses), or shopping. Equipment can allow strength and stamina training, but also apparently to attract sponsors, you have to live some kind of extravagant lifestyle, so you need to buy crap for the sake of buying crap.
Hungry Sumo has one, entertaining, original mechanic; and that's enough to carry a fast-playing little Flash game, though not enough to build anything bigger around.
Your sumos (pink-belted) and the opposing sumos (blue-belted in early levels) bounce around the window, rebounding off the sides and each other like billiard balls. Each time sumos collide, they both lose size -- the bigger sumo causes more of a loss than the smaller one. A sumo reduced to the smallest size that impacts an enemy switches sides.
As you mouseover a sumo, it eats rice, swelling in size; however, if it impacts an enemy while eating, it "pops," turning into a baby and switching sides. Consequently, you want to mouseover when there's no danger of impact and quickly move away at other times.
