Wire Hang Redux is a great fanmade remake of a Java game called Wire Hang. In this amazingly addictive coffee break title, your job is to help an anime heroine named Rinrei-chan scale the sky as high as possible – for a high score, obviously. You do this by clicking the mouse button at the right time to make Rinrei-chan throw an extending "electromagnetic wire" that attaches to the platform above her, and swings her over. Your only goal is to get as high as possible before falling off the bottom of the screen.

Like all great coffee break games (UrthWurm and Kick-Ups come to mind), Wire Hang Redux takes only a few seconds to learn, but hours to master. The trick is to wait till just the right moment to shoot the wire to get the biggest speed boosts (think of a taut rubber band that's been stretched as far as possible). Since the platforms come in different shapes and you never know where the next one will appear, you also need to aim the wire precisely. As you climb higher, the width of the platforms begins to shrink, therefore making the game more difficult.

With attractive graphics, solid underlying physics engine, and addictive gameplay, Wire Hang Redux is a wonderful and accurate Windows version of a hit Java game. If you enjoy small, addictive action gems, this underdog will likely remain on your hard drive for years to come. Two thumbs up, way up!
