Addicting running game

I have no idea how to do this successfully, but its strangely addicting (and running-related...)

I can't get him/her to move.

ok, so i know this is way too anatomically-nerdy for most of you (nor will you care) - BUT, patty and i have broken down the mechanics of the QWOPian's gait -

Q and W don't represent thighs, they rep hip flexion

O and P aren't calves, they're knee flexion

you need knee flexion as you begin hip flexion at the beginning of each stride - so...

8.2 meters run so far - BOOM BABY! :)

I made it to -2.8m, which is probably more impressive than my forward record. Figures.

Did you guys know there's a wall behind the runner? Maybe at -3.5m or so?

I just spent 20 minutes playing it and hit 11.1. Woot.

Meg said...

wow. I'm not addicted at all. i fell on my face twice and then got bored.

fbg said...

I'm not addicted, either. I can stop whenever I want to. I just don't want to right now.

Also, when I click on the link above, it doesn't take me to a running game. It's actually a diving, head-first quintuple jump game.

This game would be more exciting if the guy had a gun and you could go around shooting people.

RM said...

Whoa, Joel - let's calm down for a second.

Let's replace the word "gun" with "flowers" and the action of "shooting" with "hugging"

"This game would be more exciting if the guy had [flowers] and you could go around [hugging] people.

Sounds much better.

Elf & Hollywood just bloghugged it out

Hollywood said...

I have an idea for a game: you sing karaoke (kind of like guitar hero), and then you run around Hamden looking for Lake Trout, while avoiding guys trying to mug you. THEN, you give out flowers and hugs.

By the way...apology accepted.
