Slingshot Santa
« on: December 14, 2006, 06:49:24 am »

An online game. It's not new, but fun.

Instruction:

Note: the start button appears not until the game is loaded, so you have to wait a few moments.

1. Click into the image (in the link, not the above pic)--> the gnomes will start to push

2. Click left mouse button and hold it. As soon as you release the button, gun slingshot's goin off.

3. Don't wait too long. If you wait too long, either the lever will be pulled too hard or the gnomes and Santa will fall in a gap. You don't want Santa to vanish in a gap, do you?


You'll have to try two or three times to see how it works. I suggest to play it at least once with volume on. The *thud* and all other audible effects are so funny. But the music gets annoying after a while.


My best result is 269,7 m. Who can outgo this? Post your personal records here.


Edit: best result now 271,9 m  ;D

Whooo-eeee  ;D

314,2 m. I saw Rudolph  :D. If you manage to throw Santa far enough, you will see Rudolph. He looks quite grimly  :).

With all the US folks still sleeping, seems I'm playing all alone for now.

Well, I totally rot at this game! I dumped Santa and the elves in the ravine countless times. My best throw was a pitiful 98.1 meters!

I need to keep practicing, I guess!

Well, I played 6 times before I understood, by chance, about pulling down on the catapult.  After that I played two more times where my succes was that only Santa went over the precipice, but not the elves or catapult.  The 9th time, he got over and went 129 meters.

Best so far: 334.3 m on roughly my 30th try. :)  And I saw Rudolph.  It's hard to stop.

Wow David, you are best so far.
My personal record so far is meanwhile at 332,1 m. Clarissa and Daniel are both better, but I'll keep practising  ;D.

I find it quite addictive.

Well, I played 6 times before I understood, by chance, about pulling down on the catapult.  .

I had to try a few times too, when I first played it.

I mostly get in the 240-260 range.  I've never gotten anywhere near my best score again.  :)
