I love trying out new sports and I'm always excited to see what wacky events will be added to the Olympics. I'm pretty sure Scatto won't be making an appearance in Beijing this year, but that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to.
In fact, the game reminds me a little bit of that famous winter sport of Curling, where you need to push a disc down the ice to knock your opponents pieces out of the way.
The difference here is that both players' pieces appear in a straight line across the board with one row above the other. The object is to thrust one of your discs towards the opponent's row and try to knock their pieces off the board.
Conversely they must do the same to you. Each time you win a 'set' your row of pieces edges closer to your oppontent's end, making it more difficult for them.
You move the pieces by tapping the stylus on one side, a process that's slightly cumbersome at first but proves fairly easy to pick up with a couple of practice games under your belt.
The ball movement is a little slow though, and the game often takes a while to refresh when the computer is thinking about its move.
It's good fun though and there are plenty of game options to keep you interested, including five difficulty levels, changeable gameboard backgrounds, and a 'master class' mode, where you can practice playing your way out of sticky situations.
