DoubleJeu X Y Z!

DoubleJeu is a simple French flash game; balance a ball on one axis while playing pong on a reversed axis. Easier to understand if you just visit the link.

That game is frustrating madness.

Ok. That's just sadistically evil.

Second Red Dwarf reference in as many hours. Kill me before I strike again.

It would be more fun if you could bounce the lower ball into the air and play pong with both. :)

21 seconds is my record so far.

Translation for les anglophones:

A Pain in the Ass Game Using Two Parts of Your Brain

Can you use both sides of your brain independently?
Are you intellegent enough to believe you can do it?

Don't let any of the two balls fall as long as possible, and you will be.

(Umm, unless my French sucks more than I think...I think, therefore I am?)

Crap, beat me to the post.

Bonus game: The Game Of Disorientation. Short but tricky.

What's a parpoing? I'm about as smart as one, except the one time I got 8 seconds, when I was not bad for a 3-year-old.

metamonkey, that's pure evil.

32secs - not too bad but I still can't pat my head and rub my tummy at the same time.

7.?? seconds. My cursor seems to escape the game. The game seems to extricate itself from my control. My control has evacuated my mind. My mind has extricated itself from my skull. Which is now empty.

This is going to be a good meetup.

One hour and three minutes.

25 sec. Stupid cursor moves off game. Between this and dicewars i have done nothing today.

32.28. I'll believe 45 when I see it.

There's also a british flag on the intro screen to switch to english (or frenglish?)...

26 seconds on my second try. But I'm bored already.

34.102. The trick past the 30-second mark is to bounce the ball over the fulcrum repeatedly because the collision detection isn't nice enough to let you move in the paddle in quickly.

13 second is long enough for me to curse my trackpad many times over.

Noticed the english translation, but it's really poor.

Reminds me of my ex-thesis advisor's rotating inverted double pendulum. It's all in the time constants :P

I don't get it, is Paris Hilton like really good at this game or something?

28.411 seconds. This is fun. I want to break a minute.

26 seconds. I'm not normally a Flash gamer, but this is definitely a cool widget. Thnx!

You guys amaze me. I have come back to this twice this evening, and my best score is 13.1. Behold, I am a spaz.
posted by tastybrains at 8:54 PM on October 27, 2006


I beat you all with my massive score of 16.
posted by econous at 9:20 PM on October 27, 2006


My score is strictly less than 35s, although it seems I can get arbitrarily close :P
posted by Chuckles at 9:37 PM on October 27, 2006


I guess it's not that easy for everyone, but the trick for me, once I got past the learning curve of keeping the cursor in the flashbox, was to get the large ball rolling towards the direction the small ball is coming so when you go to hit the small ball the large one gets balanced out. I can consistently get 45-52 seconds. After that, the speed just gets Insane. Try practicing tabla for a few years and maybe this sort of thing gets easier. Or maybe I am a unique snowflake(who finally found his talent).

It says you've achieved the same score as Paris Hilton. In other words, you're an idiot.

FYI un parpaing is a breeze block.

30.338 seconds. Loading the flash file directly eliminates the "mouse out of bounds" problem..

43 seconds, I am KING OF THE WORLD!

OK, I'm up to 62 seconds, it's time to stop.

That site has a lot of other fun, evil games. I especially like the one with the maze that gets blurry over time.
