I looked up "Runge Kutter" on Wikipedia.

Saw the words "Wiener process" and started sniggering.
I'm still thinking about it...

Runge-Kutta II: The Revenge might be a great sequel. Definite Integrals this time? Lineal regression? Any ideas?

Cuatreros del Espacio (Space Horse Thieves) by David Sapuerta

In this game you travel to planet Orion to steal horses. OPQA are the keys. You control a ship that must catch the horse avoiding the static and moving dots and go back to the ship.

It's really hard to control the ship and catching the horses, but a nice game in general.

This game can be included in the 'animal cruelty' sub-genre. You're in the country enjoing a delicious afternoon snack when hordes of ants are trying to steal your fruit. So you control a foot that must step on any ant before it reaches the piece of fruit. When a number of ants reaches the piece, they grab it and leave, you lose a life and then another piece is shown, starting again. A cool feature is that a different piece of fruit is shown every time.

Stepping on an ant is really hard, you must calculate the exact moment you must press the key so that the foot reaches the ant, what makes the game surprisingly addictive.

The keys are O - left, P - right and M - step on.

This topic reminds me of Yogi Bear cartoons, when he used to steal food from campers. But if you had to step on a bear to defend your food in this game, it had been another story, maybe the game would be included in the masochistic gore sub-genre.

As the 'Seal of Approval' was introduced in the posterior thread (MH Semanal 33-36) I think I should mark the games in this thread that deserved this seal:

El Barman by Julián Arranz

Ransom by Marco A. Arroyo

Cheers!
