The "parachuting down to a target" or "flying through hoops" segment used to be a common subgame in loads of old SNES and Mega Drive classics, but it's a genre that's sadly fallen into disuse. Mainly 'cause it was a bit crap. This version is quite enjoyable though with good graphics, sufficiently difficult handling and massive amounts of sheer frustration.

Ah, another one where Opera's zoom comes in extremely handy.

Y'know that holding down <CTRL> and moving your mouse wheel does the same in IE? :cute:

(And yes, I can hear the tech forum posts now)

Nope, and I don't really care either. :)

Greg: no it doesn’t.

SB: Mario Party 4, mini-game (bonus mini-game in fact) Paratrooper Plunge.

Hmm, there are quite a few in MP4, actually. Like the dolphin/bird ones on the Toad and Shyguy maps respectively. And Manta Rings, which deceptively is not a bonus mini-game.
