Post Free Game of the Week - Dolphin Olympics

You'll be seeing more of these now that I've got a new computer. This one is great, one of my favourites ever I think. Using only the arrow keys you try to do as many tricks as you can with your dolphin within a two-minute limit, stringing them into huge combos. Okay, so it's basically cetacean Tony Hawks', but the skill level is perfect (easy to learn, real tricky to master) and it's hellishly addictive.

There's a Youtube video somewhere of a guy getting 11 million points if you need something to shoot for...

I love the attention to detail... like the time of day changing with your system clock.

I don't really understand how your supposed to link tricks together. Every time I land that's that trick over...

You have to get the 'good entry' and then almost immediately take off again.

Yup. Get a nice entry, then turn up straight away. The longer a chain goes on, the faster you go and the easier it is to get lots of tricks in one chain.

Currently trying to beat the one million barrier.

Just beat the 2,000,000 barrier and I made a stupid mistake and hit the bottom of the sea-bed with about 40 seconds to go

I can get just about a million points but I think I need to get the tailslide right to go futher. When are you meant to press down, before or after the surface?

My best is about 5000. I don't think I've really got the hang of it.

I've only had 2 goes though and most of the time was spent trying to do a tail slide unsucessfully. I did chain a trick together, that got me 500 points or something WOO!

I think this is just not a suitable for work game, as fun as it looks.
