Wow I suck at this.

Yeah, this game is really hard in a simple way.

Ah you know what the problem is? I need to turn the monitor on.

I was impaled! Really didn't expect that.

"I was impaled! Really didn't expect that."

So many responses, every one of which would get me in trouble...

Ok, I think I've almost got this. First, go straight for the clicky box. Second, impale yourself. Then third, grab the key whilst the last attempt is spiked. Then get past the clicky box and through the locked box and then... well, that's where I'm confused.

This is totally excellent! Except the spikes, we hate the spikes.

I, for one, am very excited.

Acey: All 4 arrows have to go in at once. It's not going to be easy.

Hate having to compete against 10 different version of my past.

Oh my. What just happened? Amazing.

I couldn't get the other one, what with the trick across levels and stuff. I barely got through this one.

This is still the best concept ever created for a computer game.

The first one seemed tougher, but maybe that's because it was new at the time.

This new one I beat really quickly.

Send your first guy up to the 99-click box asap. In fact, you have enough extra cursors (I finished with 4, I think) to send 2 up to the 99-box and then send the sacrifice and keymaster.

I liked the first one much better. It was more diabolical. This one though is too straight forward. The new challenges are either sort of silly with no over riding strategic consequences or not intuitive. The thing with the for arrows, it isn't at all clear what your supposed to do with them from their behavior. Really though the previous one was one of the best single games on the internet. You get the concept you explore the nuances and encounter novel challenges then you get a sense of accomplishment and are on your way. If you really liked it you could focus on improving your speed and clicking all the pyramids. It was a perfect game.

Believe it or not, they don't. I clicked 3 of them as fast as possible that popped up the stairs.

You can just hit tab until the yellow border is around the 99-click box and hold down the spacebar to open it in about 4 seconds.

Dude, it's Cursor 10, not Keyboard 10.

this is like the computer game counterpart to this film.

Best I could get was 154. What's perfect?
posted by mrgrimm at 3:47 PM on February 24, 2009


Easy. Got it in one arrow.

Spoiler: You have to believe in yourself.

I completed it. I hardly ever do that. I love this game.
posted by MrMustard at 4:19 PM on February 24, 2009


I finished the game, but there's a button on floor 13 or so that you can hold down, and I don't know what it does. You can ignore it and still win. What's it do? Does it unlock something on one of the earlier levels?
posted by painquale at 5:35 PM on February 24, 2009


I got 160. Im guessing 180 or so is perfect?
posted by suedehead at 5:37 PM on February 24, 2009


Yes yes yes yes yes. I want to favourite this again and I haven't even played it yet.
posted by motty at 5:44 PM on February 24, 2009


painquale: I tested your hypothesis, but no, nothing happens on the earlier levels. Hmm.
posted by suedehead at 5:47 PM on February 24, 2009


These are great: And I think would be an awesome improvement to any FPS game (as someone mentioned in the earlier thread). Just terrific.
posted by From Bklyn at 5:08 AM on February 25, 2009


painquale/suedehead: the button on floor 13 opens a down staircase on floor 1 leading to floor 0 with a bunch of pyramids to pick up.

I haven't been able to get a perfect pyramid pick up yet, though.
posted by Reverend John at 9:20 AM on February 25, 2009


Huh. Totally forgot about that extra button ... I just got 174, so I'm guessing that the perfect score is close to 200. I only got 1 pyramid from the circle of death.

Gonna try to rethink my timing and check out floor 0 ...
posted by mrgrimm at 5:11 PM on February 25, 2009


I think the maximum score is 200. I just got 193 and only got 1 of the pyramids in the circle of death ...

The key to remember for the high score is that each cursor's points don't count until you get to the same time in the cursor life. So, in order to maximize your points, you shouldn't click on any pyramids under 10 seconds, and then click the final staircase to level 16 at under 10 on the counter.

Ok, just got it up to 197 by sneaking out a pyramid from the circle of death each cursor.

...

Ok, I got 200. Time to quit for realz now.
