Push a guy down the stairs

Push a guy down the stairs - in the past we've discussed people doing it to themselves but surely it's safer (and more fun) to try it out on others? (2mb .exe)

I've been playing that game for a week or two. It's the noises the guy makes as he's falling down that makes it addictive...

Did anyone check out the high scores listed on the web site? How does anyone get even close to those scores? The best I've been able to do is around 110,000.

Endless fun.

What's the old Chris Rock quote?

There's a reason to push an old man down the stairs...you just don't do it.

This guy in my office can pretty consistently get in the 300-400k range. He slams down on one of the feet at almost a 90 degree angle and full force. The best I've done is about 160,000.

I've heard ... heard ... that it has something to do with positioning the arrow directly above his foot and slamming it down with as much force as possible -- apparently he gets stuck in some kind of loop. I've never managed, however, and i think my best was around 74,000 or so.

there's various ways, i think, and not a few of them are due to luck. (for example, check out this screenshot: i believe it was centered around the neck. )

I think that we should get credit for all of those hyper-extended hips, knees, shoulders, &c. Doesn't that count as bodily harm?

My co-workers and i tried another angle with this game. To do the least amount of damage. The record was 170.

I just got 89, quin! Altho it's obviously more fun the other way around...:D

I just got 1 damage. You have to target his neck, -90.00 pitch, and only 1 bar of force. This knocks his head up, and he just sits down, and only applies 1 damage.

I tried it, but I got error messages saying it could not open mp3 files. So I just took a random mp3, copied it to the data folder, then named it whatever the error was. This went on a few times. Then it said it couldn't initialize the sound!

Is this part of the game?

Heh, I just got 8, that was the same technique Stan just mentioned. ^_^

ZachsMind, no, it works fine for most of us it seems :(

I tried it on my own, and got 159. Then I read Stan's way of doing it? I got 23072. It REALLY hurt his feet.

This should be the sort of game anyone can be good at. I suck at it.

This is *such* a sick game. I love it.

Force: Full

It's a cheat but it looks and sounds hilarious.

If it doesn't work, try it a few times.
