Nice work! Landing the big drop off of the triangle is magical when it happens.

Don't you have another level to play now???

If you take a few more golds from Mike, I can start gaining on him as well!

Haven't quite finished with this one yet BB

Though your run is impressive and quick, so maybe I have!

Must check to see how many Golds I would need to take off MF to put you one ahead of him (as if I could!). Then work out how long it would take you to overhaul him..

Of course if you were to find a way to play again (which isn't all that hard to do I think - equipment wise at least), hmmm?

Hush my weasely words of temptation - ehh!?

Or have you achieved a zen like total indifference to that (this!) particular compulsion by now?

Champ(Tony Hawk), I do have an old Palm Treo. If I remember correctly, there is some file where your activation is stored, so if you have a backup anywhere of your data (which I think the Palm would do), you might be able to just use a file manager and put it back. When I last played, I was manually submitting my saved games by just uploading off the SD card in the Treo. The sync no longer was working for me.

Good to have old "friend" check in. ChampTh, Thedudeguy, bones, Spence, Laser, BikerBrian (I always read that as BikerBrain), FEL!PE FM, and Smalls. And of course new friends--Andrew A.

Andrew, I could possibly be tempted if I could get it running under an older iOS. My zen like indifference is because playing it isn't an option. There are definitely a few levels I'd like to try again.

I wouldn't mind buying an older iphone or ipod touch, but I don't remember what was the latest iOS BoD works on. Remind me how you're playing.

Managed to nab this one despite accidentally reversing when landing on the 'Mercedes' platform!

BB - I'm using an iPod touch 3rd gen (MC008BT) running iOS 5.1.1

Scrub that last one!

Wanted sub 42 which I've just managed here.

Surprised to get it so quickly, but isn't that the way it so often goes?

Really nice run!

If I ever figure out a way to play again, Iíll definitely give this one another try. The biggest improvement for my run would be to speed up the turn around.

Thanks BB!

Just to reiterate - my setup (I put this info in the comment on my previous gold run, which you might have not seen) :-

iPod Touch 3rd gen model No. MC008BT running iOS 5.1.1 (9B206).

Might have one or two slight glitches, but I'm so used to it that I don't notice and can't remember! Earlier models would be perfect I think - it's the later OS's that cause the problems.

Good luck!

I needed to get this level under a double digit placing - which I've now done (and in good company!), so no need to play this hateful level again.

Andrew A's game on Triangles
Yes, good company! And I agree that this is a hateful level.

It is cool to watch our runs head-to-head. Our approaches are completely different, but we finish at exactly the same time.

Congrats on putting this level behind you!

Well - having said I was done with this level - here is my final, final run!

I thought I could maybe take Silver, but the climb up to the flag is a bit slow and safe. I have beaten Mikes time (on resume), but there's just far too much luck involved to pursue this further.

Yes well - really, no more. Really really this time.

Just no.

You're cracking me up! You just can't seem to leave it alone. On the other hand, why move on when you've obviously learned this level well.

Amazing job on the drop and smooth climb! Any ideas about how to shave another second?

I really am leaving it at this now.

The big bounce back after the descent is where a lot of time was lost on this run, particularly, which is down to how you land (especially with my 'throw yourself off the top and avoid as many steps as possible then deal with the consequences at the bottom', approach..).

Even when I've beaten Mikes time on resume, it's only been by a few frames, so there really isn't much slack to be had - unless you get a really freaky landing/bounce that starts you on the climb without a run up. I've had that happen once, but you then have no momentum, so the climb becomes painfully difficult.

This level really doesn't warrant so much attention - so it's getting no more.

Really, REALLY really!!!

I did a H2H with Spence's run, and despite his relatively slow drop, he actually starts the final climb before me, down to him not needing a run up, but it's at least as random going slower, and even less fun.

Not that there's any fun at all to be had in this level - which is pretty damn poor given that it's a game!

So - enough.

Not sure it's worth pursuing Gold here. Smalls run looks pretty flawless - maybe room for a bit more rotation at the end?
