Curious if anybody has played this game:

http://www.addictinggames.com/puzzle-games/gimmefrictionbaby.jsp

I first played it several years ago - it's really addicting . .I played it for a while and then forgot about it.  For some reason, I thought of it the other day and started playing it again . .and I realized . .this is almost the video game equivalent of golf.  There is no technique involved . .you just click the mouse or tap the screen (if playing on iphone) to fire the balls . .but you have to time your shots and predict the angle . .so essentially, you have a strategy but it might or might not come off the way you envisioned.  You are penalized accordingly for your bad shots.  That plus the fact that it's really simple but looks easier than it really is . .makes me think this game captures something of the essence of golf.  My high score is 30 . .which I think is pretty ridiculous, lol.  It is freaking *hard* to score 30 - on the other hand . . if your brain functions a little differently than mine . .30 might be no problem.

Had never played it but I can see why this would be very addictive.  My current High Score is 28.

28 is great!  It took me probably 4-6 hrs of playing (this last time around) to get to 30.  There's something about the way it just immediately starts over when you die that makes me keep playing.  But now I kind of don't want to play, lol . .I know it will take me *lots* of games to beat 30.

high score now 30.  :banana:

Thing that bugs me the most is the lag of the game at times.  But you can only play freecell so much.

Mine is now 32 :)    I threw out my back and had some time on my hands, lol.  Hopefully I'll never beat 32.
