YIKES!!!!

 

I hadn't reached my first posted score yet :wreck-it-ralph:

 

I am curious as how to handle the rollover score, I know video would be optimal but could a still photo in the 9k range & a 2'nd still for the finished score work ? ( IF I ever get there :P )

 

keep flippin' :thumb:  ( oh wait that's a pinball term ...will work for THIS game :spot:  )

I was thinking about this too.  I was thinking about taking a picture at each dead clown break...but I think our only legitimate option is video.  I'm a total newb in that regard, but I think I just need a tripod for my little video cam.

Yeah that's what I was doing, snapping a pic as I was getting closer. I did set up a tripod to snap the latest pic and have a couple snaps of previous scores. I might have to make some unique change to a series of pics so I don't get confused ( like change camera angle or something in foreground/background )

w00t I haz nerd cred

 

 

We really need people to understand that it's all about that nerd cred.  And for everyone -- it's about having fun, sharing tips, and getting better at the game.  Post your score -- even if it isn't "top".  And if you've never tried the game before -- even better.  A perfect opportunity to try a great game.

 

I meant to post more tips for this game.  I found that if I kept my eyes focused on the middle of the screen, I could track the clowns a lot better.  Do not let your eye go up into the balloons, as there is too much going on up there.  Too many distractions.  Focus on the middle and keep the trampoline tracking the clown the whole time.  It's really hard, since it takes so long to rack up points in this game.  Takes a lot of concentration.
