Quick go last night. To be honest I'm really bored of this game. I prefer 1 and 3, and all of them rather pale in comparison to Horizon Chase Turbo which I've been playing a lot on the PS4. The only reason I gave this a vote was to avoid Indy 500 getting in.

A good run on snow, desert, motorway and marsh. Awful traffic on storm meant I didn't even complete it, but the earlier tracks are where the points really are.

Haha, John. You are my nemesis this year. Every time I post a 34m, you post a 34m....+100k!

I need some luck in the draw for the back end of the season in order to take you on the line!

I also have dabbled with manual gears in this game...i'm still not 100% sure they are worth it

^ Made the difference between our scores larger now so you don't get too frustrated:



42,260,590

Practiced the Marshes a bit (finished them only with 0 seconds left though).
Here's the "solution" for the Marshes track: M R L R L, M L R
Hope this'll help you get further.

Also looked up my solution to the Storm-track from the 2010-thread:
L R L RRR M L LRLRL ... R L L RLR L
This helped me get pretty far on my first try.

@john4p, I believe you missed #10 in the thread

Still some hours left though, but... just to be sure

After quite several tries I had a good run where I got all the pills on Marsh.

I don't know whether to be happy or sad about this score. First time I ever got 70m, but I would have won the round bar a silly mistake at the end. I thought I had got all the time tokens on Marsh and celebrated prematurely, only to realise there were two more corners and two more tokens! I missed them both, then had a nightmare Storm level, missed the turbo on lap 4 (I never do that) and there was no recovering from it.

Still higher than I ever thought I would score. Well done Harry.

Very impressive scores Harry and Capehorn. I only wish the game was 1% easier and then you would get the satisfaction of seeing the game complete screen.

It was a tough battle between capehorn and Harry but in the end Harry wins by a hair's breadth and takes the GOLD medal.
Congratz to capehorn for also beating 70M! This earns him a shiny SILVER medal.
A rather casual effort by rexsu (compared to 2010) earns him another BRONZE medal and he also further improves his lead in the league.

Thanks to the top 3 all being from this board it's a clear win for team EAB in the team contest. We're now leading 6-4 over Lemon.

But the Lemoners absolutely trumped in DUX (the Lotus 2 bonus game).
Here are the final results:
1. lifeschool - 106,800
2. Biscuit - 89,000
3. eMTe - 59,500
4. steef-online - 55,300

So lifeschool wins this side competition and gets his well deserved reward: a thumbs up!

That sounds if you can reach 72 M next time.


Thanks for the congratulations. When you continue this way I think I cant reach you anymore.

We will say that I'm in vacation mode... as you
That said, to be honest, even playing hard I don't think I could beat Harry or Capehorn; they are incredible at this game, well done to them
