No, don't throw ME, throw him

Fun Flash Friday: Throw Me - throw the little guy as far as you can. Avoid the thunderclouds. Use the wrecking balls and colored clouds for an extra boost. Simple as that.

If you click the spacebar while the ball is in flight you can has balloons.

If you score too high people will think they know why.

Personally, I think the best use of the balloons is when you're flailing around near the ground, looking for a wrecking ball.

Hmm...the game just stopped on me in mid-air as I approached 126K. Still with about half of my stamina. Takes too long, though, in between times when you actually do something constructive in the game.

I got a height of 9036 but can't get past 40,000 distance.

and then I asked the Lord "Lord, but what about those times when I looked back and only saw one set of footprints in the sand?" And the Lord said, "That was when I slingshotted you, like, all the way into space. lol."

I hit the ground at 100 mph and it ended the game--even though I think I was going to bounce into another crane. I suppose it counts how much time you've been on the ground cumulatively, so every bounce counts. Weak!

Alright, can someone mash this up with that "limp George W Bush in Bubbleworld" thing so we can bang HIM into a wrecking ball at 500mph?

Drat. I've gotten up to 105k, not quite high enough to sneak onto the scoreboard. More attempts later.

Fun as hell, though that bullshit LIFE thing is dragging me off.

Does the background music drum loop make anyone else want to murder their ears?

iconomy:

Thanks for the balloon tip. That made the difference between 9K and 63K for me.

I dunno what happened, but at some point I managed to achieve a height of 29025 feet and a max speed exceeding about Mach 7 (~5000 MPH). Sadly, due to the laws of air resistance, all my forward momentum had vanished by the time I got back to ground level; I cratered and bounced backwards, which ended my run at around 100K feet.

Fun game, though.

And on my very next play, I managed to hit the same glitch again... something that supercharges a midair collision with something, and then impacts with the same point, and does the same thing.... it's random. But I nearly hit 250k in distance, hit today's #1 spot, and this time I hit about Mach 25 or so (18000 MPH) and a top height of about 180k.

And now, I will go and play some other game.

one can has more balloon stamina how? (88k)

244,398 miles done by aiming horizontally during the launch and maintaining an altitude of 155ft (use the balloons). At this height the clouds are dense enough to sustain an average speed of 486 miles.
