No animals were harmed in the making of this game...
The "Yeti Sports" game series has become very popular since the beginning of 2004 thanks to the very funny, almost grotesque, adaptation of some Olympic games such as "disc throw" and "hammer throw" where discs and hammers were replaced by Pingus. ( = adorable and innocent penguins, someone should inform the w.w.f. !)
The "Yeti Sports" series is a very good example of what "web games" are about: simple and immediate gameplay, rich graphics, the right amount of addictiveness and a good sense of humor (the latter is not a requirement but it helps succeeding)
Most of the graphics in the games are 3d rendered and they all look very good, especially the water effect and the character animation shoud be mentioned for their high quality.
"Skill based" games like these may not satisfy players that are looking for a deeper level of gameplay, however you will often find yourself getting back to these games trying to beat your friend's best score.
