Video Game: Unpleasant Horse
Unpleasant Horse, full title Unpleasant Horse, Race Through The Sky, is a Pop Cap game released under their new 4th & Battery experimental games label. It was the label's first game release. It can be downloaded for free off iTunes.Basically, in this game, you play a pony with skulls on it's flank. Your objective? Drag white ponies with hearts on their flank to their gruesome death by means of meat grinders at the bottom of the playfield, while avoiding getting ground up yourself. Hitting a bird earns you a feather, which allows you to double-jump one time per feather. The horse may hold up to 5 feathers at one given time.As per all Pop Cap games, it's addictive. You've been warned.
