315.8ft so far.
323.5, baby!I was quite amuseed when I first swung "early"---the penguin flew high in the air, and I thought "hey, I got a good one!" ... and then it landed.And the resulting position of the flag adds insult to the penguin's injury :)
My best so far is 317.2. This game is dangerously addictive.
Maybe I'm going straight to hell for this (well, this and other things), but the first thing that came to mind when I finally got a good hit was Bill Murray's line from Caddyshack: "He got all of that one!"
I see your 323.5, but I can't raise you. I call.
323.9 full length with bounce. 207.8 on a 'no bounce' (i.e. where the penguin goes head first into the snow)
OK, I propose a new challenge: how short can you go (and actually hit the penguin). I just hit 72 feet and now I want to see if I can go lower.
Its harder to hit under 100 feet than over 300 I think hehe. I add the challenge 'how far in the air without a bounce' i.e. stick the penguin in the snow, and whats the furthest you get.
I just got 69.3 too. Thats gotta be close to the minimum
My shortest: 69.3I guess mcg is my penguin-hitting rolemodel as I seem to be copying whatever he does.
To sound a bit geeky, i'd say it just reflects the programming that we're duplicating distances. There are probably a limited number of possibilities.
It's probably the function of there only being so much vertical resolution (probably either 128 or 256) "slots" for the penguin to be at when it is hit.I'd be interesting to map it and see how many variations there are. 200 is certainly duplicatable, I've done an 'in the air, nose in the snow' 200 at least 7 times.
That would be interesting to map. If some sufficiently geeky person could write a little automated app. . .Then again, that would probably border on being geekily obsessive.
I like how when you only tap the penguin and he slides on his tummy, he turns around to look back at the bear. I was also amused/appalled to see the blood seeping out from where the penguin's head used to be when he lands head-first.Longest: 308.2Shortest: 68.3
I think that I need more resolution with my screen. I really missed all the blood. Obviously, I am less coordinated than everyone else here. Most of mine are zeros, and then there is a jump to about 150 with a bunch at around 200, and a max of about 250. Not very good. And yes, it is addictive. Will go back tonight when I have more time.
I was just relieved I didn't get the big red "ACCESS DENIED" message from 'the man'.
mcg and Buddy: I can get 0. Oooo, bet you can't beat that.
Longest 321. But I can't seem to make short distances work at all.For more useless fun, check out:http://www.iol.ie/%7Edluby/escape.htmNo animal-wacking joy, but disturbingly addictive.
Marghlar, awesome. Thanks for the link.
