    This game is so....not good. I don't have enough patience to play bad flash games for a flash cart. About 30 tries taught me that the ball almost constantly veers to one side, regardless of what you do. A 7/10 split is far too common, and picking up a spare is difficult when you have to cleave a path through about five or six pins. In all that time, I think I managed a total of four or five strikes. Oh, and that's with throwing the ball the exact same way each time after getting said strike, just to see it end in either a 7/10 split, or barely picking up one pin due to some magic variable.

    There's just too much wrong with this game for me to enjoy it. No amount of playing will ever make me good at it.

    Yes, I'm frustrated. Anybody that gets a 300, honestly, I think you would have to cheat.

    I think the lane is actually shaped like /\ you just can't tell from the specific angle.

    Skipping this comp entirely. Can't stand trying to force the game to work.

    Yes yes yes yes I have had countless 7/10 splits. And it's so damn hard to get that perfect shot.

    But I think I know the trick to aiming well. JUST GOT ANOTHER STRIIKE.

    Edit: jaskhf lakjseh flauh r 148 so close.

    Edit: The first 5 people to get 300!? That's impossibru here. This game is tweaked in such a way almost each shot is different. It'd be nice to have the top 5 users, though.

    i think it should be top five people but if it's the same person again... just carry the next one over.

    and holy crap we so got a new leader with 268.

    You'd have to have a steady hand and perfect positioning. I sense cheating. Especially this early with a new addition to the site. Feel free to prove me wrong though.

    If a mod asks, i can show them a Screenshot with the Strike spot.

    Also, its easy to replicate a shot when you use a Notebook Touchpad instead of an optical mouse.

    Now I'm crying inside because I know that I won't find that sweet spot, I'm using a computer mouse, and that I (more or less) won't win. lol Oh well, I never have luck anyways.

    Don't act so shallow people. Do not accuse anyone of cheating without any substantial proof.

    yeah games too hard for me. if the flashcart would play 3ds roms i would try it... but sadly it does not. i'll stick to my supercard two.

    i'm using my laptop mouse and that's even worse.
