Sneaky click through? That's just wrong to do that, makes me think that it's likely to lead me somewhere I don't want to be or drop something on my system I simply don't want.
Not a good idea and one I hope we don't start seeing. On the Web, no one likes to be conned by things like that.

It is a bit sneaky... but not the end of the world...

i like that the game doesnt take a click (even if it doesnt take you away) to start the game, just a rollover. that it pauses the game, too, if someone rolls off the ad gives a better user experience. the "sneaky click" doesn't bother me that much, either, as if someone has spend 20+ seconds with the ad and is compelled enough to play again (click) i dont think the new window would bother too many. agreed, though, that it's not something i'd like to see universally -- Orbitz has loads of game ads where you have to click to play and a window pops behind the page. THAT, is going to piss people off.

Damn you zamboni! Why do I love you so?!
I can't really say how I feel about the sneaky click-through. I mean, it takes me to a page devoted to the game, which I can use to pass on if i thought the game was good enough (please note, I do not think the game is good enough to pass on, fun though it is), nor is it overly sell-y.
Maybe if it gave me the option to play it on it's own page in addition to play again? I don't know.
