Conceptually, it's right up there with the Polar Bear/Penguin game.

Penguin bashing game! Oh no! There went the last productive hour I had left in me. I guess it's only my just desserts.

Pretty fun, but I wish the game course was shorter.

For some reason, after I lost, my computer shut down. Utterly.

I didn't realize there were real consequences for losing. I imagine winning must be glorious.

Lotsa fun!

I kept craning my neck to the right, though.

Me too. How weird. Fun game, though.

Crying out for online multiplayer!

Strangely entertaining. Is this what NASCAR is like if you have infinitely more patience and finitely more beer?

You loose!

Lose. (Sorry. I'm a grammar Nazi.)

Sorry. I'm a grammar Nazi.

And apparently better at this game than I am.

Interesting. I don't really get the strategy yet. I think it would be better with an indicator of how far to the next line.

That was totally fun. Thanks!

Spelling Nazi. That's spelling, not grammar.

(Sorry, I'm a... well, just a Nazi, I guess.)

Also, this game is great, even though I am terrible at it.

Am I just so ready to assume that Flash game designers can't spell that I misread the message as "you loose" when, in fact, it says, "you lose?" I just tried to intentionally throw a race to check, but accidentally won, and I can't be asked to do it again, even though it is Friday.

Conversely I just won a hard-fought race, and was told "You loose". No, I tight.

Oh how I hate this iced elephant game. *bangs keyboard*

" I just won a hard-fought race, and was told "You loose".

Spelling gag aside, you realize you're supposed to win the most lines, not necessarily the finish line, right?

I just won a game without ever hitting the space bar. I'm not so sure about the strategic value here.

this shit is as boring as christ.

Excellent. Thanks.

I worry for those who found that "too long."

All right, I just played it for about 45 minutes, and now the whole world is pitching and tilting like a ship adrift in a squall.

STOP MOVING, FUCKING MONITOR!

I got the first snowcone powerup, but King Penguin keeps telling me to "Use the frozen fire" - what does this mean?

Couldn't beat the final race. Got the first two though. And yes I kept finding myself tilting my body to the right, as if it would help.

The game's designed to make sure you never get so much of a lead that you don't have to worry about the buttwipes behind you. It's a never ending king of the hill kinda thing. I could get the lead but I couldn't ever keep it.
