When I get to this spot, it always ends up in one of those tragic multiple lunar rover accidents you're always reading about. ;)

Ugh!, I know what you mean... those white eyeballs drop craters in the road, that are very tough to jump between,
I can't even remember how I passed it! I done it three times, and NOW have no idea how I did lol...
I failed to complete the last level 4 more times tonight... :mad:

First time playing this week :_( 10,600... pretty crappy, I know, and now that my pick is next I have to make sure I'm alive for the coming round... we'll see what I can get up to this last two nights.

23,930... not so pathetic :)

I wish I would've started this sooner in the week. It's a fun game, and fairly well executed, but playing it well depends in large part on repetition and memorization, for which I don't have the time or energy to achieve distance.

I can't remember how many attempts I needed to get this far, but it was fewer than I'd hoped. This was an old favorite of mine and it's aged surprisingly well.

Gotta love that snapshot timing.

Definitely one of the coolest snapshots so far.

Vocelli's Yar's Revenge pic of 227,885 from Round 3 is up there too.
