No matter how many clicks I make, I'm either stuck on zero, or pull a 316.6 ft hit.

is there any logic to this?

323.5

I have a hard time believing anyone can do a 374.9 though..
posted by salmacis at 8:18 AM on January 21, 2004


322.9 - is it just me or are the beak-plant landings the funniest even if they don't go the furthest?

Oooh, I feel so cruel.

"And in other sports news, the Clicknholds beat the Doubleclickers 7-5 with a pair of two-penguin homers in the top of the 8th."

316.8 on my sixth try. All other attempts have been very low scores. Crap...I'm gonna be hooked on this for a good while.

Spear toss.

I've done 315.8 and 316.9...
but how will I ever explain this to Opus?

519.921 on the spear toss, 324.4 on the penguin.

But the true class came in landing the penguin on the 200ft marker on the full, head straight in. Word.

a friend was hitting over 400 consitantly, 450 often and over 500 for records. Don't know how, was playing same link but it was showing up full screen, don't know!

323.5 but it seems pretty fluky. I think i've figured out the sweet spot (in terms of vertical position) to click it, problem is my own reaction time varies.

Better scores possible here.
