Friday Flash Fun: Dolphin Edition. It takes a little practice, and you probably should read the directions first.

That was a little bit of fun... But got a bit tiresome after a while. Flip, double flip, backflip, double backflip, gulp... Ok, I get it, dolphins are graceful in the water. Echo the Dolphin it sure ain't though. :)

Woah. Space Dolphin. Hitchhiker's Guide makes sense now.

Revisted, I"m having more fun :) 21-tuple backflip plus 12-tuple front flip!

don't forget there are other moves, as well.. hold down while spinning, or exit the water almost horizontally with some speed..

and chain combos..

I did a "backside" and a "reverse backside" somehow by button mashing, but no idea how :)

All it needs now to make it complete, is moving the "rotate" button to somewhere that I can use my left hand, rather than making it the down key which fucks things up to all hell.

Yeah, I kept hitting the spacebar for "down".

Also, what fucking routine was the Romanian judge watching?

Keep playing, folks, until you get a "celebration". It's not that it's expressly worth it; at least, not until you utter "It's a celebration, bitches!"

Speaking of Ecco, is there an emulator or somethign i can get for PC to play this? That was a really fun game. Sorry 'bout the minor detour.

Mister_A: Yup, quite a few. Gens is a popular one.
