    343.9m is pretty impressive. My best was a mere 303.6. I do like the original post best though

    Yeah thats pretty impressive. There is little queue other than the speed of how the sprites are moving to tell you when to start the toss. That and little motivation to keep trying. What is the highest recorded score? I notice it allows you to record them, but to where?

    I have no clue. I just start the toss when I pass a certain point in the background, since any sooner and I'm wasting space, and any later and I fall in the hole.

    To spoil the fun...

    It's a function of two variables, click, and release time. And, in trial and error, best do them each independantly. Seems that logically you'd get the farthest distance if you release just before the 'oops' message, so then, someone quick! time that delta t and let's get cracking!
