Hard badge in Accelerator.

Terminal Velocity Badge (30 points – 8,107 awarded)
Reach a speed of at least 1,000 in ‘hard’ difficulty

Didn’t Greg say at one point games needing the unity plugin wouldn’t get challenges or BoTD? Or was that just for challenges? My crappy pc could barely play this game, and it was only due to multiple attempts and sheer luck that I was able to get a run where random lag didn’t kill me.

Ouch lol

Unity BotD?
Strange, good thing I have this one already.

Secondly, we currently don’t have any plans on making any challenges, time-limited quests, or badges of the day associated with games that run on Unity. This way if there is Linux support added in the future, those users are free to go back and earn everything Unity-related on the site.

Way to lie, Raw.

Ah, I knew SOMEONE said that. Thanks for finding that.

I’m not pissed, I can run Unity well, but I can understand how Linux/laggy PC users would easily get pissed.

 
Flag Post

I like having a hard BotD. I like it being one I already have. But again, surprised at it being Unity.

 
Flag Post

This game is quite hard for me :O

I reached speed 900 in 15 minutes, but I spent near 1 hour from 900 to 1000

 
Flag Post

It would be for a game that lags badly after playing for a bit >_<
Edit: Only took me four tries this time around.

Saying they don’t have current plans to make Unity badges BOTD doesn’t mean there will never be any.

I don’t often miss the badge of the day, but I’m a Linux user and this time I have no choice. What I really don’t understand is why Kong would allow some new technology which probably very few people had installed before, but point blank refuses to allow Java.

The thing is, most of us probably expected another announcement similar to that first one at some point letting us know their policy on Unity badges was changing before there were any time limited events involving them.

It’s really not a problem for me, I can run Unity okay and already had that badge anyway, but I can understand why Linux users and players it doesn’t run or runs poorly for would be upset.

Expecting a statement still doesn’t make what rawismojo said a lie in any way. It’s also expecting something that was never promised (at least not in the post quoted), and I sincerely doubt that any Linux users would go to any great lengths to be able to play Unity games even if they were given a months prior notice. Of course, as far as goodwill goes, it would be a nice gesture from Kongregate, but that’s as much as I feel it would be.

I’m pissed.

Can’t get the badge because of lag. /rage

 
Flag Post

I understand the rage from the community on this one, but I’m raging a bit because of just how much your hand is held for this game now. I played this originally when there was only one mode, and no continues, and I did score over 1k. Honestly? The badges (not the game) seem to be a joke because of the changes made to the game.

 
Flag Post

As others have said, it would be nice to not have Unity games for badges of the day.

 
Flag Post

Good thing I never jumped on the “I must have every BotD” wagon, cause this would be a miss for me. Unity crashes flash player on my computer.

 
Flag Post

only prob for me with this botd, gotta keep adjusting the mouse sensitivity in the options! i’m stuck at 800, dang i suck lol.

 
Flag Post

Woops! This was an oversight on our part. Unity games shouldn’t be on the BotD rotation. Sorry about that! While there’s nothing really to be done about today’s badge of the day, we won’t be doing this again in the foreseeable future.
