    I am so confused by this game play. Essentially are you just falling over and over? It runs up your score but doesn't end your turn?

    It's a flaw in the game. The game only ends when you reach the finish, so going super-slow allows you time to rack up points. He's doing a little trick before he falls.

    Way to push the limits for sure. I would have to say this falls into the category of "not in the spirit of the game" at first look. I was hoping for a traditional Gregdeg run where you totally kill it. I will abstain from this one. I've found flaws before and chose not to submit them just because it didn't feel right so I suppose this will fall into this completely subjective area.

    This is why I love the Atari!

    You have games that when you sit and think about can be beaten or maxed out.

    it takes a great player to figure it out.

    Im voting yes

    We should all be thankful that 99990 is the max out and not 1 million!

    Haha! I agree. I felt like I was in a time vortex. I couldn't stop watching until it ended!

    Pete Mee showed me/us how this 99,990 was possible on PAL fromat. I voted yes. I'll vote yes again to remain consistant. But not even ONE Gnarly ramp trick, Greg? lol.

    Accepted.
    ...God gave video games to you...
