Your favorite little known game

I dont know about everyone, but I know that I have atleast 1 game on kongregate that never scored a high rating, never was on the ‘Latest hot games’ list, yet I still think its amazingly fun.

I want to know what games others find fun, that they think got a rating lower then it desereved. (I dont mean linking a well known game because 4.2/5 is not enough)

For example, mine would be cubical:

I think its an amazing game, but I think people rated it low because it is kind of hard, and they dont master it right away.

So since I lack new great games to play, I want to know, what you consider a hidden gem.

I LOVE Caravaneer. Shield Defense is pretty good too.

neoman, the topic is about “underdogs”.
i like very much "drop-kick’ http://www.kongregate.com/games/vladetam/drop-kick
and, as the other 2 examples, it’s pretty hard.

Pretty Pretty Bang Bang, so ridiculous:

Bee Dodger, for the same reason:

Both are just really zany and fun, but not “serious” games, which I guess why they aren’t so popular.

Takes a while to get used to, but is actually quite fun. I think it deserves better =3

This typifies what I dislike about Kongregate’s rating system. People seem to load up a game then give it two seconds to get fun – or just immediatly rate it on the graphics. There are definitely at least some people who try to be fair, and not rate a game without giving it a fair whack – but they don’t matter, because it only takes a few ‘ones’ to prevent a game getting anywhere worthwhile on the best games list, so the game is condemned to obscurity.

Want to restrict movement in an interesting way, to give gameplay possibilities? You’d better not. Anything other than mouse-over and click will cost you.
Want to have developing gameplay using a progressive series of levels to give the player a voyage of discovery? You’ll be lucky.

Now there is an established canon of good games, these probably soak up most of the casual traffic. Kong’s rigid lists from ‘best’ to mediocre don’t help this at all.

Clearly there have been exceptions. But can there still be? I dunno.

Anyway, my recent underdog favourite is Ninja rinseout.
