Wow, you beat my score by 12 seconds!??! This *is* game 4, right? With 99 pylons? Is there some trick here that you could send me? E-mail if you like, graywebster . at . gmail.com ... I will hold off on voting here, because my run of 2min 27secs was pretty damn close to a perfect run if I remember correctly (ie. no crashes, almost all turns were cut close to the object). So unless emulation runs slower than the real hardware, I can't imagine how you did this! I would love to chat about your score if you don't mind e-mailing me :)

And it isn't even a perfect run! Look here and see NorthcoasterGamer beated my time: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/214876-the-new-high-score-club-s2-weeks-1213-unique-weeks-2/?hl=%20sky%20%20jinks

It's not enough to not crash, you need to keep the throttle! If I remember correct, there's only one pylon you really can't make without leaving throttle. I guess I had to make 3 turns without full throttle for this time (only left for a short time, of course).

By the way, with your time (2min 27 secs) you would finish only in 15th position in that HSC round!

I've just made a video and uploaded as evidence for my entry in the emulation area! It's only a 2:20 but with some crashes! I guess it's enough to show how much crazy you need to be as a racing pilot : )

^ Everything you say is correct smiley It's all about staying on the throttle ... The problem I have is hitting the damn balloons, they ALWAYS seem to mess up my turns. Anyway nice score; I'll keep practicing until I can take you down my friend cheeky

As a friend once said, who had the brilliant idea to organize a ballon festival during an airplane race? Anyway, it's a fun game and I'm waiting for you.
