The object of the game is to move the red block around without getting hit by the blue blocks or touching the black walls.

If you can go longer than 18 seconds you are phenomenal.

It's been said that the US Air Force uses this for fighter pilots. They are expected to go for at least 2 minutes.

Give it a try!!

Thanks for the fun friday diversion, Snaggy!

The first time I tried it I was on a roll and I went for 26 seconds, after that it was all 10s and 11s, and a couple 3 and 4s. Beginner's luck, I guess.

21.122 seconds! woo!

I had a curious little bug not long ago (was looking at the linked sites) and ended up with this score:

476.329 seconds!

114.844 seconds. Yes, those are fast. They're all linear trajectories, though, so it's not too terrible.

(Edit: first time- .52 seconds, second time- >5 seconds, thirt time~ 10 seconds. 114.844 was my fourth time and I don't think I could do much better 'cuz I got all shakey as things sped up. I'm not quite good enough to be a pilot...)

I might have been able to get to that time if my mouse wasn't set up to be pretty slow.

I can see how mouse speed could become a factor.
