    I used about 6-7 minutes to finish the game and got F- - in my first try. But then I improved a lot after finding out the secret behind. :smile:

    42 seconds for a C

    34 seconds and a B-.

    Would you think that an A+ is possible?

    What is the secret? [?]
  8. Jan 19, 2004 #7
    Yeah, it IS possible !!! In fact, my best result is 3 seconds and got an A++!

    I played this game over and over again and found the following:
    A++ -- <5 seconds
    A+ -- 6-10 seconds
    A -- 11-15 seconds
    A- -- 16-20 seconds
    ..... and so on

    I won't leak the secret for the time being.

    Co'mon, who want to challenge my F - - and my A++ ? It seems that no one can get a F- - here except me.

    Still, haven't figured out the secret.

    On my fifth try, I got an A- :smile: . Still not an A++, but I will try.

    I think I am getting addicted to the game, though.

    Recon, good luck! :smile:

    Got an F--!

    Although, in my case, it happened completely by accident! :wink:

    The controls got stuck and I had to refresh the page several times. I didn't realise that the clock wouldn't reset itself.
  12. Jan 19, 2004 #11
    Well in my case, the F-- wasn't an accident.
  13. Jan 19, 2004 #12
    YEEHA! I think I have it figured out.

    Just scored an A++ with a personal record of four seconds. Still a second behind you, but hey, I've given it my best shot. I REALLY have to do something else.

    The folks hosting the website should have a list of weekly/monthly records. I'm really sure that someone will come along and complete the dexterity challenge in 1 second.

  20. Jan 19, 2004 #19
    It seems that everyone has found out the algorithm behind this game. :smile:
