Simple but addictive Flash ball-bouncing game. Let's not start posting top scores here! (But, I got 75.) Man, am I easily amused.

Um, after 10 minutes of my low mouse-skillness, I only was able to get 9.

But I'll take you in Counter-Strike!

13. I need a better mouse.

I'm going to claim "piece-of-crap mouse" too - I finally got 9 after about 5 minutes.

i got 119, if you happen to get it going straight up and down, it's relativly easy, until my foot started itching.

How the hell did you get 119? I feel like an idiot, I can barely make the ball bounce against the wall.

Dang. Hard with a touchpoint on an IBM laptop. Even harder with a thumb-controlled trackball.

it's a lot slower (and thus easier) on a mac. mac users rejoice!

120 - I could have gone longer, but I just wanted to beat corpse and go back to work. Hit it in the center, and it barely moves.

OK - Scratch that. After reading the comment about it being easier on a Mac, I tried it on my PC, and it is harder there. It's not that it's faster on a PC. The mouse is just way less responsive.

It's like hacky sack for geeks....I LOVE IT :}

12 for me after about 5 minutes

I saw this about a week ago, and got up to 42 "legitimately", then managed to get the ball trapped in a vertical bounce -- all I had to do was not move the mouse. I took it up to 225, but by then the walls of the box were pulsing in-and-out with each bounce of the ball, my eyes were watering and I said the hell with it.

Oooh... that minigolf link above is also addictive... how'd it get found? The rest of the site seems to be hidden.

I got 10 and it said "If you're under 6 years old, that is a good score. You are under 6 years old aren't you". I love games that taunt me!

My self-esteem has just vanished. I just can't get past five and it just keeps insulting me for it. Oh look, my mouse fits right through the crack in my monitor now!

I found the minigolf game through a link a couple days ago, sent it to .Zannah, queen of all games Flash, and since she posted it it's been everywhere. It was probably leaked ... between my sending it to Z and her posting it, they changed hole #8 entirely.

Mwahaha, I'm struggling to get past 5. Gimme Unreal Tournament anyday. (Isn't this thread showing a pattern that FPS gamers are crap at this game?)
posted by wackybrit at 6:16 PM on June 12, 2001

It just needs a little alteration for the FPS gamers. Knowing which part of the ball is the head would be nice. UT isn't UT without "Head shot!"

After 5 minutes, I got 27. And that was while eating a sandwich in my other hand. Time to try and break that...

Too hard to play with a marble mouse. The minigolf was incredibly fun.
posted by briank at 7:11 PM on June 12, 2001

Okay, 5 minutes later and I'm up to 84. Hehehehehe.
posted by darukaru at 7:11 PM on June 12, 2001

I guess the key to a high score is holding a sandwhich. I can only get 12.
posted by Doug at 7:53 PM on June 12, 2001

9 minutes, a raging score of 140!

Yes, I know it's a completely worthless skill. Leave me to my petty glories.
posted by dong_resin at 10:00 PM on June 12, 2001

Well, I got to 153, but I will admit that I cheated. I got it into a vertical bounce and then just got into a groove. I was not even looking at the screen when I guess I nudged the ball and I lost it.

Once I figured out you're supposed to keep clicking on it, I got to 14 on a complete fluke, and can't get past that. I suck.

I was getting upwards of 70 last night at home. I was reading these comments and was like, geez whats so hard about it. Today I get into work, and am trying, I can't get more than 10. I guess an 850mhz handles it much better than a 166. It's so much faster.

Did he just add snarky comments? Pretty nasty when your low score is legitimately HIS fault and not yours. Butthead. Of course I keep trying.

Hey Wicker, I think you should sue Memepool. Looks like they stole your line.
posted by Doug at 10:05 PM on June 13, 2001

frykitty: the snarky comments have always been there :)
posted by pnevares at 2:53 PM on June 14, 2001

Chalk one up for my keen observation skills. Guess I was concentrating on the pretty little ball. :P
