    Obviously, I didn't spend much time with this game. :D So, is it how softly you land to get the points?

    Anyway, great run showing its possible to maintain the fuel. Accepted. :D
    I'd rather be last on every game than throw my time away chasing only one score.

    Thanks and yes that's basically the idea.
    There is a meter on the right showing your M/Sec descent speed with a yellow band in the middle which is the target area that will give points . The slower your speed when you touch down the more points you get. There must be a way to use the F3 and F5 and get a really soft landing but I didn't get that far. I think the VIC is subjective in it's speed calculations.

    Thanks - I understood enough not to crash based on that meter but didn't equate it to the points! :D
