Helicopter
- Week #8 -
Think you have what it takes to be PokeCommunity's best gamer? Prove yourself in PC's Year of Gaming Challenges! Each week a new game will be picked to see who has what it takes to get the highest score in a game ranging from old school to current modern classics. The people with the top 3 scores will be given emblems due to their abilities. At the end of the Year of Gaming, the top 3 overall performers will get unique emblems as well. If you have a recommendation on what we should play next, send me a VM/PM and we'll see what we can do!
Quote:
"Helicopter Game has stood the test of time as the best free online Flash game in history. Its simplicity and highly addictive quality can't be matched. You earn a score based on the distance travelled, and that's what keeps you playing and saying "just one more game..." It's the perfect time waster."
Rules

✈.You can access the game via the link provided here.
http://www.helicoptergame.net/


✈. After your game is officially over, take a screenshot of your score and comment below with said screenshot. This is how you enter into this challenge. Because of how quickly the current score resets, I will take the best scores for this challenge.

✈. You have an unlimited amount of tries to get the greatest score. However, only the top 3 scoring members will obtain an emblem.

✈. You have one week to participate in this challenge, meaning the last date to send an entry will be August 9th, 11:59 PM ET.

After about 200 or so tries I finally have a score that isn't too embarrassing.

Okay I got one that's slightly better and I'll probably leave this one until someone beats it. I'm waiting for the helicopter whiz to show up, there seems to be one whiz in every game...

This is not a tragedy
It's not an accident
You placed your faith in fools
And now you'll smother in lament
They play the part of allies
Claiming peace their only goal
But once the fight for power starts
They'll eat each other whole

I remember spending hours playing this a few years ago when a different forum I used to visit had a challenge of this game. Was surprised I managed to do so well after just a few attempts- hopefully I'll improve as the week goes on.

I think I'm better at this when I'm too tired to know if I'm actually clicking the mouse or not.

Got 1186 after a couple tries. Sure I could do better if I really wanted to, though.

edit: Got 1262 20 minutes later.

edit AGAIN: Less than 10 minutes after, this was my high.

Everything's been updated! O'aka XXIII, Brendino, and Bruce Banner lead the pack in the top 3, but it's anyone's game! 5 days left; best of luck to everyone!

Finally, a game which I might have a chance of reaching the top 3. I used to play the hell out of this back at school. Will post score once I get it.

Oaka I hate you. >:(



Has anyone else noticed that this game feels longer once you've played it a lot?

I actually think that it feels quicker. Like after I got to 2000 I started getting to 1000 almost every time even though before that I got 1000 like once every five tries. And then getting to 3000 getting to the upper 1000's was quicker and easier.

I was feeling so proud of my score, then I scrolled down. :<

I think it goes quicker when I don't keep checking my score. Actually, I usually die when I look at my score.
