This Week’s Time Sucker: Help a Drunk Walk it Off

This game, called Home Run, is deceptively simple: You help a drunk walk home by countering his movements.  If he leans right, you move your mouse left.  If he stumbles left, you move right.  But do it too fast, or don’t do it enough, and he falls down.

Apparently, the record is something like 500 meters, but I can’t seem to get past about 40.  Maybe it’s because I’ve never been drunk.

Go here and then scroll down to “Play Home Run 2004”.  Even on a fast connection it takes about 15 seconds to load, but that’s probably just to force you to watch the pop-up commercial.

Click on “start” and our drunk guy starts walking.  Move your mouse and see how far you get.

There may be more to it than that, but since I don’t speak German I have no idea what the instructions say.  Thank goodness “Start” was in English.

Every time he falls down I say I’m not going to play again, but then I start thinking that it’s really not that hard and I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it this time!  Arrrrggggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
