Coconuts are seriously amazing.  Food AND water, and they're incredibly abundant just about anywhere they grow!

Man, I tried that particle pro game, but I had to quit because the particles were driving my eyes crazy.  I can actually still see little dots bouncing all over my monitor.

I'm guessing that there is a 2% margin of error to account for the fluctuations in the state of the icons that you charge up.

I honestly haven't the foggiest notion how you did the coconut run in 15 seconds.  I'm struggling to beat twice that time.

Your wheels are probably too small.

Yeah, I was able to make it in 13 seconds flat with no lost coconuts simply by making a big cart with big wheels.

far.
This is one of the best things I've seen in a while.

Also I am not shit at cart building, it is just my computer does not run flash very fast, and designs that break 15 seconds easy on another computer take a minute or two on mine. I was experimenting with systems of many different sized wheels to accelerate up to speed but that was totally unnecessary.

Also guys check out Fantastic Contraption it is like the cart game except way better.

I only ever once had a go at a coconut shy when I was maybe nine years old and I actually won a coconut.

I will never do this again because I want to maintain my 100% record.

I'm seriously thinking about buying a fantastic contraption membership because the game is awesome.

It is awesome.

People: it is awesome.

My 12 second cart was a lot like that, it just didn't have the "lid." Beyond a certain point nailing the right amount acceleration seems to count more than anything. For example, I shaved off that last second by slowing down just a bit near the end; I was basically leaping the shredder part instead of immediately dropping into it prior to my adjustment.

This is way too fun.  Nerdy, nerdy fun.



This is the Beast.  I can't get it to go any faster than 20 seconds, but it can do a full somersault without spilling a single coconut.  It is a TANK.
