Under rating threshold (show) O.....kay. Any game where you start off with a score of 0, and get to a point where you shout, "Yes!" when you reach 10... is a game worthwhile.

Under rating threshold (show) I love this game. It's a really wonderful tense dance of death and I start to shake and grin as my score gets higher. Very well done.

Under rating threshold (show) @Pandimo: No, it's a reference to a physics problem, where (IIRC), the essence of the problem is that calculating the motion of bodies in space becomes nearly infinitely complex beyond two bodies, hence the 'three body problem'.

Under rating threshold (show) He should add a different mode where, instead of being the chased, you should be the one chasing. The chased should have the same AI that the regular chasers use, where it predicts where you're gonna be in the future, meaning the chased would instead read your movements and make its movements unpredictable.

Under rating threshold (show) I played this game for about 10 minutes before I ever figured out that you were supposed to try and hit as many purple squares as you could before dying. Then the game went from mildly entertaining to being the single greatest challenge of my life.

Under rating threshold (show) This game gets faster every 10 points. Starting at 30, point-cubes start spawning on the edge rows which further increases the difficulty. By the mid 50s you have to be in constant reaction without ever even a fraction of a second pause. The best way of measuring your skill and tracking progress in this game is not by your highest score, which is subject to quite high variance, but by your probability of getting one more point. I disagree with the advice to take your time. You cannot get on the first page of high scores without getting to a game speed that is constant reaction mode, so you might as well have all your game time be practicing that. Although it's trivial to learn to make the orange cubes orbit you at the beginning speed, it is a pointless skill that won't help you at all in the 40s & 50s, and won't help you get the edge blocks starting at 30 either, although it is still useful in the 20s to slow the orange blocks down long enough to get a mental break.

Under rating threshold (show) i wonder if anyone managed to get one or both oranges in an orbit. in theory i think it should be possible. although their speed is probably to slow for more than a few orbits until they crash.

Under rating threshold (show) for those interested in knowing how much work it is to get to the top 10, my statistics show that from score 0-10 my probability of getting one more point is 99.8%, but from score 50-60 my probability of getting one more point is just under 50%. 250 times harder. This means that although I get at least 10 on 98% of games, I get to 50 on less than 9%. Of course, 60+ is much faster. I just don't have enough games >60 to have a significant statistic. I've only had 6 games > 60, out of 112 games > 50 since I started tracking scores.

Under rating threshold (show) Tip for anyone having trouble: Notice that the drones do not aim at you; instead, they aim for the point where they will collide with you if you do not change direction. Try moving in the same direction as the drones, and they will accelerate more, which will make it easier to make them overshoot you (watch out for rebounds though). Also, it seems their accelerate increase with score, not time, so do not be afraid to take your time collecting points if it makes it easier to dodge them.
