This very simple game is maddening. Let me know how you do.
I didn’t…..do to well. -1.1 meters.
I can get to 1.3 but only by falling flat on my face
1.4 meters, first try with random rapid tapping. Nothing after that.
I got to 3.5 metres, the trick seems to be to type in order Q W O P as fast as you can and the figure kind of slides along on one knee. How you make him actually run I have no idea.
After about ten minutes of laughing and frustration I got the guy to hop and stumble12.6 meters. I thought I had figured it out, but then I couldn’t get him past 3.3 meters after that.
It makes you appreciate just how efficient your brain is at coordinating your muscles.
I got 6 meters on my best attempt. For me, alternating between the key combos W,O and Q,P seemed to work best.
Totally. Human-like bipedal motion is a nasty control systems problem. It’s amazing that we do it so well.
My wife got me into yoga classes a few months ago and I’ve been spending a lot of time marveling at exactly how much is involved in something as simple as balancing on one foot.
I made it about as far as Dr. x. My daughters have outdone us all, but still their figures aren’t moving in a way recognizable as “running.”
Yeah, the one time I made it 12.6 meters I kind’a scootched along trying to keep the center of gravity above both feet. It was nothing approximating running or even walking.
Amazing, amazing QWOP cosplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfHCUM_OBCc
That is so awesome. Thanks for sharing that, Martin.
And now I’ve learned a new word, “cosplay.”
That was great. And the way he moved (the first time not the second time where he ended up on his head) is just the way the QWOP guy moved when I made it my record 12,6 meters.
Not exactly smooth running or even walking.
Here’s a “QWOP tutorial” I found on you tube.
This explains in great detail how to first “march” and then “run”. The narrator says it took him a week of marching before he could run. Seems like a lot of time investment for not much return to me, but to each his own.
