    I liked how that website called Brighton : "Quite Groovy" !! ;)

    The game was irritating though!

    I grew to quite like the writer :

    "I used to live in a flat just off the New Kent Road in London's Elephant And Castle, and now I live in the scummiest town on the south coast.

    I moved here because I wanted to live by the sea, but couldn't afford Brighton. I thought Hastings was quite a good compromise at the time, but have since discovered that it's really, really, ****... and now I'm stuck here, in a poverty trap. "

    Wahey - the helicopter mania has spread to talkbass! :)

    where did you hear about it, Moley? Activebass, my site, or somewhere else? :)

    I still haven't broken the 2000 barrier - I'm up to about 1776

    cheers

    Actually someone sent round an email at work. And then I started playing it. And I didn't stop ;)

    I'm still trying to break 2100.

    if it's made it to 'email at work' status, then I give it about four hours before their server crashes... :D

    There's a large "American" employer in Brighton and I heard recently that large numbers of staff had been suspended and/or dismissed due to "misuse of emails at work" !!! :eek:

    I thought I'd given a big enough clue!!
     
  9. Okay, what's the secret? All I do is crash either into the ground or hit one of those green obstacles.

    I stink. :(

    When you hold down the left mouse button the helicopter flies up. And when you let go it sinks down. So basically, you hold it down long enough to go over or under the green blocks, but don't hold it down so long you hit the ceiling, or let it go so long that you hit the floor.

    Are you on a fast connection? I get great scores at home on my cable modem. I stink at work. My connection here is just to fast for me to fly safely.
     
  14. I KEEP CRASHING!

    My best score so far: 51! :eek:

    Am I lame or what? :D

    yes potato man...it seems you are a little on the lame side.

    wait! A new superhero!!!

    Potato Man - Wielding three day old potato salad.
    If he can't kill his enemies with food poisoning, he'll get them by crashing into them as he flies past.

    ok... I need to just log off now and go back to work.:


    (edit: I should use more smileys so I don't accidentally hurt feelings

    sooooooo you're not really talking on the phone while you drive. You're crashing a helicopter!?!

    The only thing cooler than that would be to go through rush hour with a conklin neck sticking out the driver side window. Or better yet...drive a jeep with the doors off and play the double-neck!


    You frighten me sometimes:D
    (BTW I didn't log off-I'm hopelessly addicted and will probably be fired)
