I should apologise to a few of peteandmegan.com’s most recent visitors. This afternoon I stumbled on an online flash arcade game, Lunar Lander.
When I eventually finished it, in a shameless plug for the site, I put the web address as my name. So sorry, if I ‘high score spammed’ you.
Just to make sure your visit here was useful, if you’re one of those useless people that are getting 02:27:73 or 01:46:90 here are some tips:
- Break at the last minute. E.g. for the first one, drop straight down and then hold the thruster on solidly.
- Minimise petrol stops, skip as many as possible
- In light of the last point, you can skip them all together. When you crash they give you a partially filled lander. So run your lander into the next level, and then crash it fast (and empty). Then you’ll be given a new lander with more fuel without having to refuel.
Edit: I set my target at 45 seconds, and I just hit 44.94:
So far the fastest is 41.96 by Guest. Insanity.
Update: Due to Shortland Street’s crapness, I came back to play some more Lunar Lander, and after stuffing up piles of times, I pulled out a 41.56. That makes me the man. At least until db asserts his will to it.
