    Hi, Roger, yah, that final screen with the jittery fireball is a killer. Good score. You should also post something for the 15 minute timed track on this game.

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

    I was surprised, this isn't a terrible version of the game, just kinda repetitive.

    I noticed the 15 minute challenge seems to go better with level completion than points pressing, I'll give it a go soon!

    Repetitive is an understatement, after I finished my run I honestly had the jumping noise burned into brain!
    I heard it in my head for a couple of hours after playing.

    I do love the game though, your run shows potential Roger.

    100k plus is what you want

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    I've actually started a list lately of things to "get back to", Kong is definitely on it-I've found a few new things lately that I've had fun putting scores on, but I can't fully commit to yet...

    I'll tell ya what I think, and I'm not sure it has been explored.

    I think the 5.51 could have happened.

    On game 2.
    :)

    Think about it-the game variation seems to disregard its own rules, physics wise. I've had terrible starts and had the tach bump to just the right place at the right time to recover.

    Just seems like if you were on track for a .6 something and got a wonky tach bump or hit the wall at the right angle(which I believe can speed you up or slow you down)that something odd and special might happen.
