Cute little Simple series 2D version of that wacky Canadian sport where you throw 40 lb rocks down a sheet of ice, with guys running in front of them sweeping their path as hard as they can. Super-deformed sprites, peppy music and bright colors make it cute here, yet the game proves itself remarkably strategic as you have to plan how to block the opponent off from your winning shot, or knock him off of his. Challenging too, 'cause aiming is a real trick of timing and rapid button mashing, and you've only got the barest amount of control of the rock with the brooms.
Well implemented in the basic game, but absolutely nothing beyond Vs. CPU and Vs. Player 2. A shame too because this could have been much more. Still makes for a nail-biting multiplayer diversion.
