Sword Lady & The Viking's Up Down Ready, which just won a Freeplay award for Best Design, is now available to play for free online so you can see for yourself what the judges thought was so great about the WarioWare-style game and its pixelated graphics.

Though Up Down Ready initially plays like a traditional side-scroller, it soon leads you into a random series of non-traditional (and strange) micro-games that all use the same two-button Up/Down controls. At one point, I was hammer-dancing across a stage to dodge giant gray drops.

Each of the micro-games have different rules, so it might take you a few tries to figure out what they expect from you. Since each one only lasts around 20 seconds, though, you should be able to see all of them after a few playthroughs.
