i may or may not have decided to beat my highest score by becoming beyblade. very good game, 10/10 edit: I did it again with a 111670. just did it to beat a friend. to as you cant tell, great game.

Mobile version would be nice, played it on PC and it's very fun.

i got the source code but i will not re publish it i do not know if i am allowed to make it a native mac game for only my computer

Very fun but hard to master amazing game :)

aka spacex simulator

after you land burn all the extra fuel on the pad to get an extra 1000 points

you get "showing off" points from dipping into the water and coming out safely, and bonus points from touching platforms, so i like to stay super low down farming show off points while touching all of the platforms, then eventually land on the golden one, which is easy because of how low down i am. pretty neat strategy in my opinion.

really fun, got a high score of 474,480 used a strategy of flying upwards to about 10000 altitude of 15000 fuel, and then spinning really really fast to get tons of points from just spinning, then land on a gold, you need all of the fuel left to slow down and then land, its a pretty fun strategy

It's just a whole lot of fun to fling that rocket.

My highest score is 375 040. Amazing game, it's pretty adictive, but it doesn't make me feel like I'm wasting time.

my record is 315400 i never really checked how good it was till i looked here, seems i have the world

Landing is SO HARD! Any tips?

I would suggest practising landing without the landing legs. I've found that this really isn't much harder. Land and then pull out landing legs

Edit: New top score : 648,960

Top score: 512,240

*Have not perfected yet, and landed with around 3000 fuel

Aim for the Silver platform, and hop to gold, then to silver. Repeat.

You get 4k for hitting silver platform and 8k for gold. When fuel get low, land on gold platform.

top score is 120,539

330,809 my pb

I got 377,000 that's my best

Update: best score: 304,120

It's more efficent to tap the thruster in about 1-2 second intervals

Update: my top score is 240,280 nice

I managed to get 1.12 million points through a very time-consuming but relieving method. the second i went to play again, the points i got didnt save to my best score. is there a score limit to over 1 million points or summin??

so basically, you have to get off the catapult and land it on the starting pad kinda like how a rocket launches off facing straight upwards. and then just tap the left right keys that rotate it to give the rocket wobble, you can kinda spam the wobble and it’ll give you 10 points each wobble and it doesn’t waste any fuel. Then once you reach 125,000 points then land the rocket on the gold pad which times it by 8 and gives you +8000 points so you should reach a couple thousand over 1 million points. 

The whole process took about 3 hours of non stop tapping, but super annoying how it didn’t count my points. Had heaps of friends to witness it so it’s more of a congratulations to myself rather then showing the whole world but hopefully will try it again and beg that it keeps my score. 

ohhhhhhhh bruh

is there not a better method to reach one mill that doesn't require wobbling? my record is 714,000 btw without wobbling

ion think so

(1 edit)

top score 714,600 can anyone beat that ? 

how tf

just went straight up at 22.5 degrees and when I had 10k fuel I stopped going up and I started spinning. Unspin at 14,700 and land on gold pad. usually gets around 700,000. do you know how to get one mill tho

spam left and right after landing on the starting pad and get infinite points for no fuel

Falcon 9 simulator

Yea, i know, you can also target a platform and blow up on it to really get that missile feel going

I dont know why but  i dont launch the rocket right away i land it on the starting platform then turn off the landing legs and then take off it reminds me of a tomahawk naval missile  

gold platform doesn't do anything on web versio

Thanks a lot LF, my whole class is playing now and they love it. Nice game!

Even tho this one was a silver

Top score: 96,280

Lol it took me so long to learn how to land on the gold platform, but it paid off!

lmao gg I got 714,000 you suck

;)

i am bad at landing always tip over XD Very fun game

top score 71,680

Great game super fun only bad thing is that it says land a thing to multiply your score but all it does is +8000 not multiply 

you have to land fully and then it will multiply your entire score by whatever

top score of 69,420

i guessed you just kept it at slow mode

but if this image is a joke, here's a caption:

Dads when the gas station fuel price is above $3 USD and is about to run out of fuel

I got a top score of 14550. I'm very proud :)

nvm i just broke that with a score of 21260 :)

So I decided to go through the coding being the geek that I am, and I am currently crying\laughing\wtf'ing myself to sleep trying to figure out why this is in here! 

how can you tell me how you went in the code

very frustrating, I love it (not a massacaust)

Hey LF I know you probably wont see this but, I wanted to "remake" this game and add some twists to it for a class project? I wanted to twist it up with like gold to by more rockets with more boost, skins, online battle to see who could get the most points, etc! I just wanted to get your permission first before I did it! If not can I still make the game just for myself and some buddys to play it? Not to upload on anything?

Sure, go for it! This was also a student project meant to remake a game, so have fun!
