What's the fastest way to get from A to B?

Is it by aeroplane? Perhaps by train? No, it's by using other people's cars, and lots of them! This ingenious idea will save you the cost of purchasing a ticket, or petrol. There are no waiting times for the plane or train to depart, and no need to wait at the petrol pump to refill your car. Everyone should do this, it'd make everything so much quicker!

The genius who came up with this idea is Vasco_F, who has put together a training programme called Freeway Fury. The government wish to trial this novel idea, and will get the best performer in the training simulator to try the notion out in real life. They will award points for the number of cars you successfully use, the speed at which you reach your destination, your athleticism in jumping far distances and your reaction times in swapping into cars going the other way. In a bid to boost recycling and the economy, they are also rewarding the number of cars you destroy and how many need some bodywork done after you're through with them. They also wish to convert everyone to the obviously vastly superior practice of driving on the left hand side of the road, so will reward those who do the business on that side of the road with a gift of everlasting nitro.

You have a week to get as high a score as possible, leave a comment here so I know to check for your score, or tell me in chat (I might tell you to leave a comment here anyway :P). Post a screenie in the comments of your end score to brag about how you are the paragon of driving in each of the desired areas. Good luck!

Edit: you may need to submit your score by pressing 'UP' to get your score to register. You might not, but it's best to be sure :P

NB: the above recommendations to commit crimes are in jest only. Whilst it could well be fun in real life too, stick to playing with your keyboard to avoid jailtime.

Though None Survived, They Will be Remembered!

With only three people with enough balls to face the zombies, determining the best zombie killer was easy, if a bit lonely :( Possibly my fault for not spamming this enough...

In third place, with 720 was PR2_STORY
In second place, Snape007 had 2270 points
But clearly the best zombie-killer with only footballs to use was Payton_Hayes with a freakishly massive 164790! A big, red Kongratulations to him, and remember his name for the next World Cup in case it is zombie infested too!

Hey, This Game Looks Familiar...

If you pay attention to the blog, and have a good memory, you'll recognise some aspects of this game which will give you an advantage, although the instinct to kill zombies should be inherent in everyone so nobody ought to have too much trouble :P

Mousebreaker brings us to a zombie infested World Cup, where it is up to you to kick footballs really hard after bouncing it on your noggin, and at zombies to send them crumbling into the earth. You have 7 days to get as high a score as possible (extended to midnight on Sunday 26th September), and submit it by posting a screenshot like this (name and green plug in top right of chat, score visible in game over screen, or whatever happens if you beat the last boss :P) in the comments. The guide on how to do that is here.

A few tips: head the ball a few times to make your hoofing power increase, your bonuses (throw speed, base hoofing power and fancy balls) stay with you so each time you try will be easier, and your score accumulates from previous levels so on your best run, start from level 1 :P

Good luck, and happy zombie rekilling!

PS: the legit version of the inital game is here (this is NOT the tourney game! Play the above one for a score).

Running, Jumping, Money Collecting, Switching and Levering... and oh, Teamwork's pretty important to get right too

After the failure of the World Cup thingy, let's give this a go :P

The game is 5xMan by Gibton, and I'm looking for the highest score you can get. The game calculates your score by multiplying the number of glowing pieces of toast you collect by the amount of time you have left and the level difficulty (1 for easy, 2 for medium - which I found the most difficult to collect everything on, incidentally - and 3 for hard), then sticking some zeroes on the end. I'll calculate your score the same way, since I've heard of some problems with getting some of the in-game achievements to register (which give you half a million points in total).

You have a week to post screenshots (instructions how are here) of your 'Play' screen like in my screenshot (have your name visible at the top right of chat). Stick them in the comments below this post, and you are allowed to update your screenshot :P

A couple of hints: try to get your people to arrive at the multiswitch rooms at about the same time so they don't waste time waiting for each other, and press space bar to end your turn as soon as you put a man on his multiswitch - the time left on the clock will go towards your total.

Good luck!

Edit: Important announcement! It seems that the easy mode glitches (2 cases reported so far), giving people an impossibly high score. Hence we won't be using people's easy score, only their medium (doubled) and hard (tripled) scores.
