What to say about this one... well, after spotting it over at Rock Paper Shotgun, there was no way I wasn't giving it a go. Then it proved to be more than I could have ever dreamed of. Japan World Cup 2 will make you scream 'WHAT IS THIS', but with a huge grin on your face.

There's a fair bit of Japanese to sift through, but it's simple enough to work out what to click and how to work it. The game is essentially a betting affair, as you guess which 'horse' is going to come in first in each race. Except that you stop really caring about whether you're winning or not, and concentrate solely on the racers.

I'm not sure on the developer name, so if anyone can read Japanese and can let me know, that would be most excellent. Give it a go over at the official site.
