Dadliest Catch might be weird, but it's also weirdly good. Developer Young Horses' first paid release puts you in the tentacles of an octopus masquerading as a human. You're tasked with keeping up the charade by accomplishing mundane tasks against the constraints of an awkward, convoluted control scheme. The participatory slapstick that ensues--with your orange, business suit-wearing avatar flailing into everything in sight--is entertaining enough to make the concept a worthwhile one, but it's the way Dadliest Catch is designed around clever settings like a rocking fishing boat and an arcade full of interactive games that really give the idea, uh, legs.
