Thanks, Dr. Mabuse. I'm doing much better, but I still don't have a score worth posting.

Of course, I had just bounced before doing the aerial. I felt like an idiot.



I've figured her out, but not the others...

Cune, as mentioned in chat last night, it's all in the OP of this thread. Or at least as much as I've figured out, but I'm only missing the details of the Comic Force Field stuff, really.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Has anyone else noticed that the red, blue, and gold boosts (not specials) seem to change the angle differently? Red seems to leave it pretty much as-is, gold seems to raise the angle, and blue seems to flatten it. These observations are very uncertain.

A good addition to this game would be the total time in travel, and then an average meters-per-second displayed at the end. As well as a measure of peak instantaneous velocity.

I've done the same observations. There is definitely a difference in angle between them, but I thing Blue is "middle" angle, and Red (I think it looks more like Brown, but it could be my monitor) is flatter angle. It seems to fit their hitting style.

So, I discovered tonight that it's the Parachute Death Sentence. I'll update the OP.

I also started keeping track of my games in a little spreadsheet. After 21 games, I'm averaging 1,268.00m per game, which included the four random screw-ups which got me less than 20m each.

I found this page tonight, which lists all the characters' names.

Oh, after 64 games, I've gone a total of 105,124.96m, for an average of 1,642.58m per game. Farthest since I started keeping track has only been 8,179.52m.

Am I the only one still playing?

Game 79 (since I started keeping track): new personal best of 14,279.62m, aided nicely by a Bound Boost, which I've counted twice now, and it only lasts for five bounces on the ground (bounces off the people don't count). But what was really nice in this game was getting a blue-gold special, which I noticed was followed by a green girl. So, right after the first boost animation ended, I clicked to do a blue aerial boost, and hit it at just the right time to blast myself right into green, and get that special, too. Ker-Poooooooooooow!

My average, however, has only risen to about 1,800m.

Oh, and I also ran across a page which says that the type of Comic Force Field you get (A, B, C or D) depends on the color of the girl you crash into when the "vs. C.F.F." thing is displayed. For example, hitting the gold girl gives you the type D, bound boost (the OP was wrong - your character doesn't turn green, he turns gold).

I'll update the OP again with what I've learned in the past few days.
