And if you have half an hour to kill, this is a fascinating little read...

Is using a labeller for your stuff too conventional? Want to get that old smoky flavour when tagging your items?

Navigate the game just by using 1 mouse button. On each level the button makes the caharacter perform a different action. Simple, compelling and brilliant.

381 is the (rather easy) score to beat. Let battle commence (bye bye afternoon)

Could get away with this if it wasn't for those 'how fast can you click' ones.... can't think of a suitable business reason for clicking that fast!

i've taken to using the mousepad click on my laptop rather than an actual mouse as its much quieter. Can't break 200 hundred though. grr.

Edit: 219 now, I got to the boss on 160 something and only died twice yet it went up to 219, confused?

Edit 205. Ah its the running from the falling celing jsut before the boss that is shooting my score up. one more go...

Edit 201: Just one more go.

Edit 196: I could cut another 20 clicks off it, but how the hell do you get a score of 125?

Edit 181: Frustrating, people came in and started talking to me three levels before the boss, just leave me alone!!!!

That's awesome! Shame they don't have a bit.ly type function which you can share combinations you've made via a short url. Otherwise we could have had a competition ;-)
