Webgame Wednesday: Lockehorn

Don't let the cute graphics of Nitrome's new puzzle-actioner Lockehorn fool you. The game is a fiendishly difficult variation on the old Pengo arcade game. You play an elk (with two legs, for some reason) who's got to push a frozen block around an obstacle-filled maze while avoiding various nasties. Getting that damn block to go where you want is a serious challenge. Good luck, my antlered friend.
