Maybe you can also add an interesting picture on the background if you pass every 500 or 1000 points.

first thing that came to mind was a series of stripping girls *sigh*

Whattt?? Stripping girls  :lol: That would totally kill the player! I'm thinking of characters that are famous for their climbing and swinging abilities. Like Spiderman, ninja five-0, batman, bionic commando and at the top is a picture of smiling helm. Just silhouettes so there would be no legal problems.

Just wanted to say this is really cool! I love simple concepts like this in games. :)

Although I suck at this just like I sucked at Thrustburt.  :(

Curious question... why did you disable the ability to lower the quality?

I don't know why you changed this, I kind of preferred it the other way.

But yes I've been playing this a lot, it's a fantastic little minigame. I got ~1600 once, back in the day.

I want Flixel.  The game is fun, too.  The best I could do was barely over 1000.  I thought "hey, I'll go see if I'm on the high score list" since it took me all night to get 1000.

No.  8000+ scores!?  I thought I had too much free time o_0.
