Tetsumo is a fun game with hints of a rhythm game with a runner aspect, you play as a character and can move each limb independently and must match the cut out coming towards you. I swear I have seen this game before or at least the concept but it was a Japanese game may be on the Wii? Anyway back to it and Tetsumo is a game that has an initial learning curve and constant difficulty spikes but it is a lot of fun especially in local multiplayer. Once you unlock the characters however you have little reason to return except maybe for the odd multiplayer session.
