YES! I'm up to 323.4! I must admit that I like popping them up waaaaaaay too much.

I wonder if that one with the Spear Throwing contest is still running...

67.8 is my low. Man it's hard *not* to whack that thing over 100

320.5 not too bad.

You know, I was on my way to bed when I saw this link. I told Mrs. Socks that I would be there in a minute or two. That was 45 minutes ago.

Boy, am I in trouble now.....

Addicting game. I got 310 my first try but then started popping the penguin up and hitting line drives. My high is 319.9 but I'm determined to beat all of you!

EDIT: Just hit 323.4 after hitting 319.8 and 310.3

323.FIVE. Sit down.

Although yes, it is much more fun to pop 'em up.

The physics are interesting. The sweet spot seems to be at right around 190. If the penguin hits the ground before 190, he'll bounce, and the point of his first bounce will be a little under 60% of the final distance. If he hits the ground past 190, he'll go splat. So if you're hitting fly balls right around 190 (I just got 191.1), you're just missing monster scores.

The collision detection algorithm prevents a lot of potentially steep angles, meaning that pop flies all seem to land in that 190-207 range.

I just popped one up (and had it stick in the ground) at 189.1. Just wanna let ya know. I thought I was gonna get a monster score.
I've gotten it to stick in the ground exactly at 200 twice and once at 199.9... It's fun


EDIT: Two tries after posting I hit 323.5 Don't know if any more is possible

2nd EDIT: I just got a low of 56 point something, although it looked like I swung and missed. Hmm

I just got a *splat* at 190.2, so I'd say you're right on there.

EDIT: I just got a *splat* at 189.7. I'd quite doing this if I could get above 320!

I can't seem to get past 323.4

I have no idea how you guys managed to hit that penguin so softly. My best wiff is in the low 60's.

Also, hitting penguins into the air while listening to the Two Towers theme (the Requiem remix) is way more amusing than it ought to be. It makes me feel like the world is gonna end if those penguins don't fly.
