Kate Russell, the BBC's Click website-hunter, included this game in her latest roundup, and she's right about it being *addictive*... Swing the little guy round and round in big long loops to build up momentum at the start, then fling him into the sky and see how long you can keep him flying. Clouds give him a boost, particularly the coloured ones, as do the construction cranes at ground level; you also have a set of balloons you can use for a certain length of time to give yourself a boost (spacebar). For the record, my best effort so far is
5120 7748 feet (max altitude) and 35,978 59,969 80,128 154,895 feet (max distance). Right, I'm stopping playing now, else I'll not get anything done.
