Tuomas Salmi (Tumestu) has created a clever, browser-based puzzle platformer called Bodiless, in which you navigate platforms with your limbs or head. Some areas are best reached and traversed with your arms or feet, while others are so high that only your head can latch on.
It looks a little disturbing at first, but thanks to the minimal design, it's not as gruesome as it could be. It's a curious concept that I can't recall my favorite magical limb hero, Rayman, ever used.
Some of the other mechanics are more genre staples (lots of spikes, gravity shifts, collectibles), but the main allure to Bodiless seems to be how the player's lack of body becomes the key to navigate the mazes.
