How the heck is The Impossible Game hardcore?

Yeah, sure it is challenging but I would normally associate a hardcore game with length, story and needing a lot of time and skill to complete. The Impossible test is more of a casual game, no?

Then again, I haven't played the game so I wouldn't know.

Little update called Focus Mode happened a little while ago.

Of all the hardcore games, why Squareball?

Street Fighter IV should've been included. It's pretty deep and complex if one wants to master it. It has almost all of the advanced strategy and techniques from the original game like FADC.

Of course it's not as deep as its console counterparts, but Archetype is no HALO and Real Racing is no Gran Turismo either.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

After clicking the itunes link and checking those titles out, my first inclination was to return to this thread and express the same viewpoint. It's also worth mentioning that Chaos Rings has been slammed for being a breeze; one type of attack can be used over and over, etc.

Apple has listed Jet Car Stunts under "what we're playing" in the past. Was their memory of its difficulty such that they repressed it altogether?
