Here. When the penguin says okay, click on the Yeti, then, as the penguin drops, click again to get him to swing his club. My best score so far is 310.6. Smile

Edit: Oooh, make that 321.1 Smile Smile

316.3... although most of the time I either swing too early & nose-dive in around 200, or too late & skid to a halt around 210.

Very addictive & loads of fun - many thanks for the link !

Yeah, that nose dive around the 200m mark looks very painful, especially when the flag goes in Shocked

Very Happy

Looks like I'll have to try harder now. I wonder if, like some other games, performance is limited by hardware parameters?

Theres another game like that by the same people where you have to make an albatross fly as far as possible, problem is most laptop touchpads cant handle tapping at that speed. Another reason why the Trackpoint is supreme Very Happy
