This'll drive you crazy. The clue is in the shadow.

Och... Addictive...

Got 21 bounces and 3050 points on a laptop touchpad. Not bad, but can't spend time trying to do better. I could be here all night.

Most difficult thing i've tried in a long time. Hope it never comes up as an aptitude test :sad: .

Why do laptop manufacturers persist with these dreadful touchpads? Much preferred the 'nipple' (and not JUST for that reason).
You can't use a touchpad when wearing gloves (and even without the 'sensitivity' is quap).

Why would you want to use a laptop wearing gloves ?? Or have you run out of Kleenex ?? :p

And I'm getting old and circulation ain't that good . . . :{

5 bounces, 250 points. It's tough being a natural.

25 bounces but I can't seem to score many points (1050).
You've gotta hit those red targets...

13th Feb 2006, 12:56
33 bounces and 3400 points and ENOUGH'S ENOUGH!

30 bounces, 4500 points :eek: :ok:

It gave me a handy little "radioactive" square...sent it flying that did!

Correction: 42 bounces, but only 3350 points

ahhhhhhhhhh I give up..... eye and hand cordination is way out but my excuse I am sick today and my head feels like fudge:ugh:

Eeee.. Tricky thing this.

52 bounces but only 4200 points. Radioactive square and treasure chest are helpful but you need to hit the red bullseye frequently to keep going. Eventually got caught out by the glass panel - avoid!

92 bounces and 7600 points. Luck played a big part - I got three radioactive squares.

So far for me:
31 pounces and 5300 points.
Some tips:
Every normal bounce earns you 50 points
The red-white ones are "trampolin" - makes the ball fly higher again, thus giving you more time to react
"Radio-active" sign - same as above, just advanced :
Grey-Yellow squres: opposite of the red-white ones
Yellow coins: 300 points
Treasure Chest: even more points! :}
Bluish square: Glass - you'll break through :*
Hope that helps!
Now, I know the basics, why do I seem not to get above 32 bounces :confused: Guess I must be the speed of my internet conneciton! ;)

13th Feb 2006, 17:23
I thought I was doing okay until I saw the all time high score. 3315 bounces.

Not even I have got that much time on my hands!

Treasure Chest is 1500 points - worth going for.

As an alternative to looking for the shadow there is another trick. Place the top edges of the tile you want to hit against the top edges of the black hole - a bit like a Flight Director.

Cant believe It... after about 3hrs I only achieved a pathetic 28 bounces and 2500pts then in strolls the missus from work has one go and nails 39 bounces and 4700pts...
A bit like her parking, just without the points bonus.
