How to Win in the Hunger Games: Panem Rising

The Hunger Games: Panem Rising, a new card battle game for both iOS and Android platforms, has been attracted numerous player who like adventures and excitements. Among those mobile strategy games, this games starts in the middle of the beginnings of the rebellion against President Snow, so your quest will be to explore from district to district, battling Peacekeepers and other associated enemies, collecting coins and sparks, and recruiting new fighters for your rebellion. Here we will share with you some best tips and strategies for The Hunger Games: Panem Risin.

First of all, you need to evolve a card. Cards can be evolved anywhere between one and three times depending on rarity, and this is done when you have two identical cards. One card is sacrificed to evolve the other. Make sure to enhance both cards first so that you can get extra stat boosts during the evolution, increasing the base stats greatly. They don’t have to be enhanced to max level, as that’s time consuming and expensive, but at least enhance them to a minimum level of 7-10 first.

Second, being that this is a card battling game, there are multiple ways to upgrade your character. Enhancing, the most basic one, allows you to sacrifice up to six unneeded cards in order to earn experience points for another card. Your best bet here is to use two-star cards as sacrifice fodder because you will get more experience points in exchange.

Organize your teams based on possible team bonuses. Go to a character’s profile and tap on the diamond shaped icon that pops up at the bottom part of the profile to see what the bonuses applicable for that character are, and what other characters you need in the same party in order to complete the bonus combination. High bonuses can more than make up for weak cards, and can be more effective than even having loads of rare cards.

Third, once you get past the communications center in District 3 you will unlock the stadium, where you can battle against other players. Card combos, evolving and enhancing are doubly important here, because other players will be doing the exact same thing. If you need to find where your weak link in a battle is, resist the temptation to skip it and watch the battle. You should be able to easily find where your strengths and weaknesses are by watching and analyzing.

Last but not least, make sure to get every drop available in each district. There are specific drops for each level in the district. A drop that you have yet to find will show up as a “?” on the map screen. Once you have every drop in a district, you’ll earn a rare card bonus, as well as other goods such as a boost to power and endurance.

Raspberry Pi-et Painted poem
games mobile
Image by Shakespearesmonkey
Poem + abstract painting – based on the circuit board of the Raspberry Pi "B’ mini-computer

LET us praise thee, Raspberry Pi
You’re the true Apple of our eye
A computer made for you and me
Whose innards we can actually see
Allowing kids to write their code
In a backroom of their own abode
At last we are able to turn the pages
And leave behind the darkest of Ages
When giants like Apple and Microsoft
Held the keys to their castles aloft
And declared their computers No Go zones
As did the firms that sold us mobile phones
The results of this soon tragically showed
By stopping people who wanted to code
In schools they cut out an entire nation
Creation killed for a whole generation
Britain is still counting the cost
Of creativity needlessly lost
Which only now we can we begin to see.
Looking back on our gaming industry
Created by youngsters who’d cut their teeth
By having access to the code beneath
The BBC B and Spectrum machine.
Let’s hope in coming years it will be seen
How kids let loose will start to make merry
Blowing a metaphorical Raspberry
At the walled gardens of yesteryear
Playing with their computers without fear
And, trust me, you will very soon see
An increase in the value of GDP.

Snow Rally Canada Mobile Game Review

Techies have known about the Google Android platform for designing games for several years. But up until recently it was fairly unknown to most of the world outside of the tech realm. It has suddenly garnered a lot of interest thanks to Google introducing their new mobile device, the Nexus One. The Nexus One debuted in January 2010. That means more people are going to be turning to mobile devices and when one already works off the Android platform you can expect some great games; games such as Snow Rally Canada to be precise.

Snow Rally Canada is a pretty straightforward racing game. But instead of racing around streets or a track you get to race in the great Canadian wilderness. That means learning to drive on ice and through snow. It does add a bit of excitement to the game as you struggle to keep your vehicle on the road. You will have to dodge plenty of obstacles if you want to win against the competitors.

Snow Rally is not just on snow and ice though. That would not reflect the beauty of Canada very well. You also get the chance to hit dirt roads and race through beautiful landscapes. As an added bonus, you get to try out different vehicles which can completely change up the gaming experience for you.

Granted, Snow Rally is not on par with gaming console racing games but it is not meant to be. Gaming consoles have more memory and space to be able to add more detailed graphics and simulations.

With Google unveiling the Nexus One you can bet that more Google Android games are going to emerge. And the current games are going to be revamped and improved. Snow Rally Canada may have a sequel coming out before long but in the meantime you can enjoy what is available now. You can race through the Canadian wilderness on highways, snow covered lanes and dirt roads as you race to become champion of the game. It is definitely worth the time and money. And if there is another game that comes along, at least you have mastered the basic racing skills you will need to win.

Most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the programming that goes into developing a game, but with the Android gaming platform this is changing. Now, instead of waiting for someone else to develop a game, you can create one on your own with the help of Pro Android Games. Visit the Android Games site to learn more.

The shiny star leaf being stranded fringed weirdly in a moongate gravitating sun-side down earth↓wards exhibiting her flashed, chthonotrope, fawnbeige moon-side, fringed by rippling rickrack purlieus; subfusc harbinger of the non-trivial Hecate-Day, the Blue June Moon on June 30th, 2007 [GMT], transformed by wintertimes into a moonscaped, tellurian-coloured ghost; serendipitously cultivated undulant, darkly leaf rings all around, a mystique caused by the processes of becoming embedded into {fossilized onto} & trying to escape from her marblelike, hygrophilous tar-yard.
─► Elucidated as a figuration: Mystical avatars agonize each other. Metamorphosed into hellenic myth: Persephone struggles to elude from the ineluctable gate of Hades.

─► The litter ‘moonlanded’ in a black asphalt moon-gate that contains an area of 3,141 m² . Therefore you can call it a π-gate. It belongs to a landscaped pedestrian precinct and is the left part of a twin-moon∩gates-ensemble, i.e. tar-black asphalt-circles lined up two abreast in lane 3 of the running track that extends on two long sides of the Eastgate in Marzahn.
This moon-gate is the most western of the 11 (∑=2+3+2+2+2=4+4+3) totally black circular tar bubbles. These special eleven fields do not contain – like those other 26 {1|2|3|e|a|s|t|g|a|t|e| ∟ |e|a|s|t|g|a|t|e|e|a|s|t|1|2|3} surrounding the building – white alphanumeric signs, but these are void and black like gravel-free tar. [_pearl of civilization, 16 Dec 2007_]
─► Apocryphal 9/11-Speculation: The star leaf was found in the eleventh π-gate (The number 11 in Greek Numerals : acrophonic: ΔΙ ; alphabetical: ιαʹ). Might the ‘twin moon∩gates’ represent the ‘twin towers’? Are the eleven tar-filled circles esoteric mourning memorials for 9/11?
─► Another question: How did the puzzling sedimentation-like black halo come about? – Most likely: The thin film of water on the hygrophilous tar evaporated quickly and left the fringe pattern. Less likely: Melted, gravel-free tar as a kind of sealing wax. Chromatographicly. Osmoticly. Silver Thaw.

─► WHY LEAVES CHANGE COLOR AND FALL ◄─
Four leaf pigments are responsible for leaf color: chlorophylls, carotenoids, tannins, and anthocyanins.
Why do leaves fall? Shorter days and cooler temperatures signal leaf senescence in which an increase in the enzymes that promote the breakdown of cells occurs. The veins that carry fluids into and out of the leaf gradually close off as a layer of cells (abscission layer) forms at the base of each leaf petiole where it is attached to the twig. These clogged veins trap sugars in the leaf and promote production of anthocyanins. Once the separation layer is complete and the connecting tissues are sealed off, the leaf is ready to fall.

tree for Michigan’s lower peninsula
□ The Redgum (also called sweetgum, sapgum, starleaf-gum or bilsted) from the witch-hazel family (Liquidambar styraciflua / Hamamelidaceae) is a tree from North America that hit Europe for the first time in 1681:
The leaves are palmately lobed, 7-19 cm (rarely to 25 cm) long and broad and with a 6-10 cm petiole, looking somewhat similar to those of some maples. They have five sharply pointed lobes, but are easily distinguished from maples in being arranged alternately, not in opposite pairs.

The gum resin, also known as liquid amber or copalm balsam, yielded by this tree has no special medicinal virtues, being inferior in therapeutic properties to many others of its class. It is a kind of native balsam, or resin, like turpentine. It may be clear, reddish or yellow, with a pleasant smell like ambergris. As it grows older, it hardens into a solid form, which historically was shipped to other countries in barrels. It was reputed an excellent balsam for mollifying and consolidating, and good against sciatica, weakness of the nerves, etc. Mixed with tobacco, the gum was once used for smoking at the court of the Mexican emperors. It was long used in France as a perfume for gloves and other such items. It is mainly produced in Mexico, little being obtained from trees growing in higher latitudes of North America, or in England.
An American Sweetgum will be featured as part of the Memorial Grove at the World Trade Center Memorial, with installation set for fall 2008 and spring 2009.

MOONING the act of displaying one’s bare buttocks by removing clothing. Mooning is used in some cultures to express protest, scorn, disrespect or provocation but can simply be done for shock value or fun.
Moon has been a common shape-metaphor for the buttocks in English since 1743, and the verb to moon has meant ‘to expose to (moon)light’ since 1601, long before they were combined in US student slang in the verb(al expression) mooning "to flash the buttocks" in 1968. Formerly, mooning was slang for "wandering idly" and "romantically pining".[1]

"When it is highest in the sky, the full moon looks brilliant and has an undoubted yellow-white color," Teske says. "Yet the moon is a very poor reflector of sunlight, with about the reflecting power of an asphalt parking lot. Its brilliance and apparent yellow-white color in the night sky are an illusion caused by dark adaptation of one’s eyes, together with the fact that the black sky provides no background illumination for comparison. Astronauts who have circled the moon and walked on its surface report it is almost colorless. Some describe the color as a dull grey; others say it is a dull grey-tan." (Astronomer Richard Teske)

Blue Moon [scienceworld.wolfram]
When two full moons occur in any calendar month, the second is called a blue moon. The term (in its modern usage) therefore has nothing to do with the Moon’s actually color. A blue moon occurs about once in 2.5 years on average. A blue moon can occur in January and the following March if there is no full moon at all in February, as is the case in the years 1999, 2018, and 2037.
There are several other meanings ascribed to the term "blue moon" (the most common being "a very uncommon event"), but the one given here seems first to have appeared in The Maine Farmers’ Almanac of 1937. The phrase "blue moon" has been around for several hundred years, but its meaning has changed a few times. The earliest use of "blue moon" meant an obvious absurdity which everyone knew never happened. However, the moon does occasionally turn blue as a result of smoke from forest fires or particles from a volcanic eruption. Since these blue-looking moons were rare but did happen from time to time, the phrase "once in a blue moon" was coined, meaning that an event is unusual, but can happen occasionally (Kibbey). "Blue moon" has also been used as a symbol of sadness and loneliness. That appears to have a history of its own among musicians and songwriters (Kibbey).
Blue Moon I [en.wikipedia, Sept07]
is called the third full moon in a season with four full moons, as described in the Maine Farmer’s Almanac. Until recently it was commonly misunderstood that the second full moon in a month was the blue moon. However, it was recently discovered by Sky & Telescope Magazine and reported on NPR that the interpretation of a blue moon as the second full moon of the month was erroneously reported in an issue of Sky & Telescope dating back to 1946 and then perpetuated by other media.
Blue Moon II [en.wikipedia, Sept07]
Farmer’s Almanac blue moons
The older meaning of blue moon to name an extra full moon, as was used in the Maine Farmer’s Almanac, was the third full moon in a quarter of the year when there were four full moons – normally a quarter year has three full moons. The division of the year into quarters for this purpose has the dividing line set between March 21 and March 22. This has to do with the rule for setting the date for the Christian Holy Day of Easter, which depends on the last full moon – as calculated by the computus, a somewhat inaccurate formula – on or before the Equinox on March 21, which is also somewhat inaccurate.
This meaning of blue moon was lost when the editors of the original Farmer’s Almanac died. It was recovered only when researchers for Sky & Telescope magazine noticed that the Maine Farmer’s Almanac from 1829 to 1937 reported blue moons that did not fit the meaning of the term calendar blue moon.
Calendar Blue Moons
In recent times, people have taken to calling a full moon a blue moon based on the Gregorian calendar. By this use of the term, a blue moon is the second of two full moons to occur in the same calendar month. This definition of blue moon originated from a mistake in an article in the March 1946 Sky & Telescope magazine, which failed in an attempt to infer the earlier definition used in the original Farmer’s Almanac (see above). It was helped to popularity when Deborah Byrd of Earth & Sky walked into the Peridier astronomy library at the University of Texas at Austin one day, leafed through some old magazines, and found the 1946 blue moon article in Sky & Telescope. She used the definition – the second full moon in a single month – in the radio series Star Date for some years. As a result, the game Trivial Pursuit used a question and answer about blue moon. Sky & Telescope discovered the error nearly sixty years later and the magazine printed a retraction and correction.[2] By the time the correction came the calendar definition had already come into common use. As it is easier to understand, the mistaken calendar-based meaning has stuck.
Calendar blue moons occur infrequently, and the saying once in a blue moon is used to describe a rare event. However, they are inevitable because of the mis-match between the solar and lunar cycles. Each calendar year contains twelve full lunar cycles, plus about eleven days to spare. The extra days accumulate, so that while most years contain twelve full moons to match the twelve months, every two or three years there is a year with thirteen full moons. On average, this happens once every 2.72 years. Additionally, in some years there is no full moon in February at all, since February is slightly shorter than the time from one full moon to the next. This condition, known as black moon, gives additional ‘blue’ moons in the preceding and following months (namely January and March). The last time this occurred was in 1999. The next time this will occur will be in 2018, because February will have no full moon that year, according to UTC, which means that January and March will each have a calendar blue moon that year.
When there are thirteen moons in a year, twelve of them are given the twelve traditional names associated with that time of year (the names vary from culture to culture), and the extra one is termed a blue moon. Which of the thirteen moons is termed ‘blue’ depends on whether it is calculated by the old or the new method.
The months of the Gregorian calendar are all very close to the 29.5306-day period of the moon’s phases: the synodic month, or lunation. Most of the months are longer than this by one or two days, except February, which is the only month which cannot contain a calendar blue moon. Since February is one or two days shorter than the moon’s cycle, very occasionally it has no full moon – there is a full moon at the end of January, and the next one is at the beginning of March. What this means is that both January and March will have blue moons. This happens, on average, once every thirty-five years.
The previous calendar blue moon (based on UTC) was on June 30, 2007. The first full moon would have occurred on June 1, 2007. But that was May 31, 2007 in the Western Hemisphere making that full moon the second occurrence in May in the Western Hemisphere; see below); and the next calendar blue moon will be December 31, 2009.
Time zone problems
Occasionally whether a moon is called blue depends on the time zone. Any full moon occurs simultaneously everywhere, but at that moment clocks and calendars are not the same.
Example, when it is early evening on August 31 in Europe, it is already early morning September 1 in New Zealand. Hence, residents of London seeing a full moon when their clocks and calendar say it is August 31 would call what they see a calendar blue moon. People seeing the same full moon from Auckland would note by their clocks and calendar that it is the early morning of September 1, and they would not term it a blue moon. But they would probably have a calendar blue moon at the end of September, or perhaps October.
Because this is confusing, astronomers worldwide and the calendar makers who rely on them typically choose the time zone of the Royal Greenwich Observatory in the United Kingdom, known as Greenwich Mean Time, or the nearly identical UTC time zone. As a practical matter, because the moon seems to the casual viewer to be full for almost three days, the use of a foreign time zone for calendar markings for full moons makes little difference.
Blue Moons between 2004 and 2010
The following data is based on the Calendar and Farmers’ Almanac definitions.

○ Blue moon, you saw me standin’ alone
Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me sayin’ a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will hold
I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold
Blue moon, now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

My comment : Heirs of the oracle: Gaia, Themis , (Demeter & Persephone), Phoebe & Phoebus.
In her prologue of the Eumenides the Pythia – ‘unconsciously’ – reveals the unutterable, nevertheless conspicuous CRUEL MYSTERY of the Oracle of Delphi: Phoebe & Phoebus have once ousted (and silenced) Demeter & Persephone by force (ἣ δὴ τὸ μητρὸς … πρὸς βίαν ). The telluric-matriarchal Mother&Daughter-Succession, Demeter → Persephone, was replaced by the solaric-patriarchal Grandmother → Grandson-Succession, Phoebe → Phoebus.
MYTHOLOGICA:
○ Demeter : earth, dark (‘daemonized’) side of the sun.
○ Persephone (lt. Proserpina): daughter of Zeus and Demeter. under-earth(⅓) & vegetation(⅔ ), dark (‘daemonized’) side of the moon. Was carried off by Hades and made queen of the underworld. Demeter vainly seeking her, refused to let the earth produce its fruits until her daughter was restored to her, but because Persephone had eaten som pomegranade seeds in the other world, she was obliged to spend part of every year there.
○ Phoebe: a Titaness born by Uranus and Gaia, mother of Leto (–> Apollo & Artemis). Later Greek writers identify her with Selene and even Isis, CIG4987 (Ethiopia)’ [LSJ p.1947], bright side of the moon.
○ Phoebus-Apollo: Horus, bright side of the sun.
○ Pythia: the priestess of Apollo in Delphi – Origin from Pythô, a former name of Delphi.
○ Hades (also called Pluto): the underworld, the abode of the spirits of the dead
▐► Ἑκάτη◄▌
Hekate {Hekátē}, or Hekat (lt. Trivia), was originally a goddess of the wilderness and childbirth, naturalized early in Thrace, but originating among the Carians of Anatolia,[1] the only region where theophoric names are attested[2], and where Hekate remained a great goddess into historical times, at Lagina. The monuments to Hekate in Phrygia and Caria are numerous but of late date.[3] Popular cults venerating her as a mother goddess integrated her persona into Greek culture as Ἑκάτη. In Ptolemaic Alexandria she ultimately achieved her connotations as a goddess of sorcery and her role as the "Queen of Ghosts", in which guise she was transmitted to post-Renaissance culture. Today she is often seen as a goddess of witchcraft and Wicca. One aspect of Hecate is represented in the Roman Trivia.

Unusual Trivia CollectionSuperstitions: old wives tales, folklore, bizarre beliefs, taboos, omens, lucky & unlucky things
Hekate: magic, witchcraft, the night, moon, ghosts, necromancy. …
Hekate assisted Demeter in her search for Persephone, guiding her through the night with flaming torches. After the mother-daughter reunion became she Persephone’s minister and companion in Hades.
Two metamorphosis myths describe the origins of her animal familiars: the black she-dog and the polecat (a mustelid house pet kept to hunt vermin). The bitch was originally the Trojan Queen Hekabe, who leapt into the sea after the fall of Troy and was transformed by the goddess into her familiar. The polecat was originally the witch Gale who was transformed into the beast to punish her for her incontinence. Other say it was Galinthias, the nurse of Alkmene, transformed by the angry Eileithyia, but received by Hekate as her animal.

Poverty
Thus you dare to maintain that Poverty is not the fount of all blessings!
Chremylus
Ask Hecate [595] whether it is better to be rich or starving; she will tell you that the rich send her a meal every month and that the poor make it disappear before it is even served. But go and hang yourself and don’t breathe another syllable. [600] I will not be convinced against my will…
Ἑκάταιον (Hekataion) or Ἑκάτειον (Hekateion), τό, statue or dedication stone (Calvet Collection. This stone-shrine contains two iconized ornamental stars, ‘asterisks‘, starlets amazingly similar to japanese maple leaves) of Hecate, placed at the entrance of houses or where three roads meet. These shrines dedicated to Hekate were invented by Alcamene as Pausanias remarks(2,30,2.). An epigonal Roman Hecateion of the 2nd BC stands in the Metropolitan Museum, a triple-bodied Hekate, resembling Alkamene’s Hekate Epipyrgidia, which was erected around 425 BC on the Athena Nike bastion to guard the entrance of the Akropolis. Alkamene’s statue was one of the earliest representations of the retrospective style known as archaistic, which imitated the stiff, linear quality of drapery that marked works of the sixth BC The three figures of the goddess also wear poloi, cylindrical headdresses often associated with female deities of rebirth.

Dumb Ways To Die 2: The Games Guides

Dumb Ways To Die 2: The Games is one of mobile strategy games, which have attracted the attention of numerous app games lovers. Here, we would like to share with you some guides about how to play this game easier!

The dumbest of the dumb is the competition area, but before you go here, go to all of the other areas on the map. All of these are free to enter, and you can play as many times as you want. Practice until you become as close to perfect as possible at these stages, then go to the dumbest of the dumb.Once you are ready, you have to pay one ticket/token to go to the dumbest of the dumb competition. You can get more tokens by spinning the Wheel of Misfortune at the end of the round, then when the knife shoots out, it will either hit a prize on the wheel, or just hit your character in the head, causing you to earn nothing from it.

The safety bonus at the beginning is the best way to earn bonus points, which is important because the more points you earn, the more of a chance you have at getting a new character in Dumbest of the Dumb mode. In none of the other modes will it matter, although it’s also good to practice your speed at the bonus games, too. Use a different strategy for each different game. For the speed tapping games it’s very easy to cheat simply by using three or four fingers at a time. The swiping and tilting games are not quite so easy, though.

Every day, you can get two free tokens delivered straight to your game, so if you run out of tokens, there is still hope for playing the Dumbest of the Dumb again; don’t think that you have to delete the app or anything. You just have to be patient and wait for the tokens to come.

Another option if you want the free tokens right away is to set the date on your phone or your tablet ahead by exactly one day. You have to shut the game off altogether before you do this or else it won’t work. Once you shut the game off and set the time ahead, you can go to the game and open it right back up, and you will earn free tokens immediately. You can do this trick as often as you want for free tokens.

Go to any one of the stages and tap the stage, then after you complete the train safety bonus round, go to the title screen for the stage (Freezerville, Drown Town, Adrenaland, etc) and you’ll see the list of events. Scroll to the right by swiping, and you will be able to connect on Facebook and challenge your friends. Swipe again, and you can see a worldwide leaderboard, so you know the scores that you have to beat.

To practice all of the safety bonus stages in a row before you go to the Dumbest of the Dumb, tap on each of the three stages (four stages once Adrenaland opens) to ride the train over and go to the safety round. Tap on each of the stages in a row before you play the Dumbest of the Dumb, then go there and you’ll replay one of the three safety bonus rounds – and likely get a much higher score because all three are fresh in your memory.

After you do that you won’t be able to play them (the safety bonus stages) again immediately. You can change that by waiting a few minutes, or by shutting down the app and then reopening it and going to one of the levels to try it again. Do this as many times as you want for endless practice of the bonus levels.
There are hex editors available to mess with the scores in the app, but chances are that if you try to use it to mess with the score you’ll get banned. Mess with the speed of the game instead by searching for the speeds associated with the various games.

Each little minigame has its own specific set of instructions. Some have more than one way to do things, and if you do the alternate way, it makes it easier. Let’s go to Freezerville for a good example of that. When you go to the Avalanche Chalet minigame, it will tell you to swipe to close all of the windows. However, if you tap each of the windows and doors instead, then it will close them the same way, and it will take a much shorter time to do so.

When you get to the Dumb Dome, there are similar alternate techniques. For the Hammer Throw the game makes it look like you should swipe in a circle. However, if you swipe in a long oval (to match the size of the screen) you’ll be far more successful. Also, with the shoelace tie, you don’t have to swipe in an exact figure-8 pattern in order to tie the lace. As long as the dotted lines are covered, you can do it however you want.

With the lightning pole vault, when you start going faster, you have to tap earlier in order to stop the bar in the middle. Tap when it’s still slightly in the red but almost to the orange, and when it stops it will be in the orange. For the 3 Tonne Clean and Jerk, tilt the phone in small movements rather than large movements so you don’t accidentally set the weight toppling over.

Drown Town is a whole other batch of challenges. With the Dumb Life Saving, they will float in the direction of whatever side you put them on, so try to keep them all on the same side as they started at to make it easier. With the Piranha Freestyle, tap with as many fingers at the same time as you can possibly fit on the screen, because the game will read every single one of them.

The Killer Whale Dentistry challenge can seem nearly impossible at times; however, an easy way to do it, at least early on, is to swipe from side to side rather than tracing the outline of the whale’s teeth with your finger. The tracing will make it very difficult to get every spot on the teeth – not so much with using the actual “brushing” motion.

Dolphin Rodeo is passed in the same way as the 3 Tonne Clean and Jerk – use slow movements with your phone. In this one though, you will have to be extra careful because it can be hard to judge where your center is in this one.

Another thing that will affect your overall high score is the beginning safety bonuses. The bonuses compound upon each other as long as you keep completing the challenges. If you are on a winning streak with the safety bonus round, then the score that you earn will be compounded with the previous scores of the challenges that you have beaten in a row.

Watch out, though, because the challenge continues to get tougher and tougher as you add to your streak. You will have a shorter amount of time to complete them and you will have more to do. Figure out how far you can get and how many in a row you are capable of completing, and make a count of it, and use this to your advantage.

Then, go to the Dumb Dome, Freezerville and Drown Town and play them, and earn the bonuses until you get to your high point. Then go to the Dumbest of the Dumb, spend your ticket, and win the beginning safety bonus round. Then do the competition and get that extremely high score at the beginning of the level.. This will help to unlock any new character that you find it hard to get to, as well as increase your percentage on the global leaderboard.

Make sure to use all of your tokens each day. The reason for this is that if you have any tokens left over, that daily tokens bonus will not arrive, but if you have no tokens left over, then you will earn two tokens as a bonus the first time that you open the app that day.

Hope these tips are helpful for you!

A Mai Tai (was) my code co-pilot.

Somewhere 32,000 feet over the Pacific Ocean (during a 5.5-hour flight to Hawai’i), my laptop battery finally gave out while I was prototyping a browser-based tribute to an old Commodore 64 space-themed shoot-’em-up I used to enjoy.

(There was no in-flight wifi available, so boredom lead to clicking around idly, running the old VICE C64 emulator with some games, and an "ah-ha, I’ve been meaning to do this project at some point" moment.)

I didn’t have a pad of paper handy, so I carefully-unfolded the paper of a pack of gum and got to writing basic routines, object, method and property lists.

Back in the 80s, I used to write and edit code like this when on vacation, family road trips and the like, and then I’d enter it all on the computer when I got back home. Laptops have largely changed this these days, but I’ll admit it was fun to revert to old habits.

I have a sort-of working prototype now, and will eventually post some screenshots or something.
