Today’s procrastination: Sunny Day

Ducks. The umbrella-bear's number one nemesis. Known for their umbrella flipping skills and their uncanny ability to fly in a straight perfectly horizontal line.

Today’s procrastination is a spectacularly cute flash game called Sunny Day. Basically you, the player, control an anthropomorphic child bear with an umbrella. It’s a side-view platformer where the player can … you know what? Let me put it like this: It’s the most peppy game you’ll ever play today. That, and it has extremely simple controls but manages to do more with those than you may think is possible. Still, if that doesn’t float your boat then don’t play it. It’s not like I’m shoving it down your throat or something. Just sayin’.

My highscore is 227 cars in one flight and 317830 points overall. It’s a real shame that this game doesn’t have a leaderboard shared with friends over a service like facebook.

Then again, I wonder how this game would feel like if it had no scoring mechanic and slower incoming birds and cars. A no challenge mode basically. A relaxed gameplay would certainly suit the relaxed visual and relaxed music, me thinks.

    New highscore: 574 cars in one flight, 1655990 points made in that one flight.

    After playing it so much I can say a few things about it:

    * The music never gets on your nerves, no matter how much you listen to it.
    * This game desperately needs a pause button.
    * The ducks increase in number the further you travel, which doesn’t make any kind of sense in the game’s world.
    * A few things that would break up the monotony after passing the first 100 cars would be welcome. Hell, even a re-skin of the ducks/cars would be enough.
    Any kind of progress apart from pretty numbers going up and the duck count increasing would be extremely welcome.
