Wacky puzzle action in which you play a giraffe's head on a seemingly infinitely long, twisty neck; the head floats upward, buoyed by eating levitating fruit, sandwiches and junk food, and stymied by stationary anvils.
This is all great, with goofy sound FX and, surprisingly, sharp 1080p graphics--particularly unusual in a game with the PS3 "minis" branding on it.
Oh you can collect hard hats, I think to survive conking yourself on an anvil. There's a momentum element: miss eating and you slow, eventually starting to fall back; fall off the bottom of the screen and it's game over.
However, something I ate strobed the screen purple, so I guess I'm out. Dang, this was looking good.
