How to feel like an idiot for wasting ten minutes having fun

If I wasn’t so busy with school work, this would totally wreck my
morning (be strong… be STRONG…)

The game is, you are a robot with one tool… a “sticky rope” that you
can shoot up at the roof. You have to avoid swinging down into a row
of points at the bottom of the screen. Start by shooting the rope up
at a mid-distant point on the roof. Hold the mouse-button down. You’ll
start swinging to the right. Before you go off-screen, when you are
still rising, let go of the mouse button.

You will arc up, then start down again. Shoot another rope into the
roof and repeat, seeing how far you can go before dying. I only got
about 800 meters on my 4th try. Since the game is in Japanese, I’m
just guessing at the rules I wrote above, they may be wrong. Let me
know if you have fun with this.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management for said bank. After work, I watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving.
