My max seems to be 12.4. It's a mystery to me what strategy you and Samirkazah use to get those outrageous times of 17 and 30 seconds xD

I liked the "eject mechanic" more than I thought I would. It adds another push your luck element to it, and therefore can feel super frustrating but also especially rewarding. How interesting that between this years submission and last years Pavlov's Parrot there is always some element of randomness. Is this something you actively strive for?

Kind regards, DaVici

Thanks for playing! I don't specifically go for the element of randomness, but I think it's a nice thing to have in a small game to give it a bit more reason to play again.

Managed to get 17.0333 seconds. Not as good as yours but I'll take what I can get. I can't stop slamming into Jupiter for some reason!
