Up Down Ready (alternate link) is a refreshing small experimental game, that explored the minimal game mechanics of pressing the keys up and down on the keyboard. The aim is basically to “avoid obstacles” in changing scenes. There is the moment of surprise, because every scene got a variant of the basic core-play: sometimes you steer an airplane, sometimes a jumping horse… The mechanics of every scene are instantly understandable within seconds (otherwise this game would be unplayable). Maybe the best about this game are the cool graphics – a good demonstration, that graphics do make a difference. The process of game-making is (or will be) a little bit documented at updownready.net

PS: Thanks Corin for the hint to this game. Here is some thankful linklove to the Freeplay Independent Games Festival
