View Full Version : Great way to waste time
Check this (http://www.vectorinternet.co.uk/games/kick-ups.html) out if you're bored and want to kill a lot of time i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif You have to click the ball and keep it from touching the ground. VERY ADDICTING! You have been warned!
High score of 31 so far! i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

DJ, I don't know whether to curse you or thank you. I just checked it out and I can tell you I need some practice. I just played a couple times and my high score is 9 but I'll waste my time on that--again--later i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
55! Awwww yeaaaa!! i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
06-14-2001, 11:02 PM
I got 44...the computer's saying really started to piss me off after a while.
06-14-2001, 11:05 PM
I still suck. 14's my high. But hey, atleast DJ gave me a reason to clean my mouse. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
06-15-2001, 09:00 AM

damn you dj. yet another way to waste time at work!
06-15-2001, 09:39 AM
So what's your highest score BBL?
06-15-2001, 09:47 AM
WOOOHOOOO!! 104!! i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
NOT! I suck at this game i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif .
62! Beat that! i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
06-15-2001, 12:14 PM
I don't beleive you. Are you on the leader board? I want some proof. i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif
The leaderboard's whack right now..all the scores are 99999999!
06-15-2001, 12:21 PM
For real. that guy keeps talking about people cheating...how would you cheat?
06-15-2001, 12:23 PM
haha, I know. Scroll down to like 50th place and they become more reasonable.
And the first like 20 places are all in the same guys name and score. Must be the creater and he's got it rigged or something.
06-15-2001, 12:32 PM
Right now this trident guy has all 100 places with an infinite number of 9s
06-15-2001, 01:32 PM
Hmmmm i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif . Your right. Well it did work earlier.
06-15-2001, 04:21 PM
WHY WOULD YOU TELL ME THIS???!!!! Obviously I have a lot of time to waste, and lord knows this is all I will do now!
06-15-2001, 04:57 PM
Highestscore board is working and I don't see your name on there. Hmmm seems alittle fishy i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif
Oh cripes I forgot to enter my username! I'm listed with 73 as ANON.
Hehe I'm submitting like every score I get now! I'm listed a bunch of times i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
06-15-2001, 05:04 PM
I noticed i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif .
Dammit I have a decent score now but it's not posting..getting an error msg i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif
06-15-2001, 05:06 PM
Yeah, it broke because I was gettin good. Last 2 scoes 30 and 35. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
I just got 51 and am trying to enter dallas-mavs.com as my username (heheh) but I keep getting that stupid "Could not open data file at line 384" error msg.
06-15-2001, 05:13 PM
75! But the scoreboards broke. You'll just have to believe me on this one i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif .
The scoreboard's numbers are fugged up again.
06-15-2001, 05:18 PM
Ok, I gotta take a break. Starting to get a headache.
06-15-2001, 06:17 PM
dj...are those scores you posted on the leader board real or did you cheat? If they're real than you deserve some major props!
My scores were legit but the leaderboard screwed up all the scores. My highest was 73 (under the name ANON).
06-15-2001, 07:19 PM
Man...I got 94 but the lowest score on the board was 100. I tried to post it anyway, but it said an error occured or something.
06-16-2001, 12:07 AM
When I got to 94 and 85 it gave me the web site to a kick ups forum and a password. Did anyone else get this?
Ya I got that url too. I didn't feel like creating a new login and everything though (the password mentioned in the msg didn't work for me).
06-16-2001, 12:11 AM
I wasn't ever asked for the password. I didn't want to register either just to talk about a silly yet addictive game.
06-16-2001, 12:40 AM
Just had 131, but the high score list is hacked. 999999999 is still the worst score. You were right DJ, very addictive game.
06-16-2001, 12:43 AM
I think it quit using profanity...at least the one on the internet did, I don't know about the downloaded versions.
06-16-2001, 07:22 PM
Looks like someone hacked that site and messed up the scoreboard. Atleast that's what it says now.
Anyway, I don't see how ya'll get such high scores i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif . My highest is still 36. What's ya'll secret? I try to hit the middle of the ball so it doesn't bounce as hard, but that doesn't work very well.
My best score so far is 73, but I still find myself constantly getting 15-30. Tiger and Fidel are probably just real quick i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif I know the game actually runs a lot slower on slower computers, so that could be why so many people are getting 100-200+ scores.
06-16-2001, 10:23 PM
Hmm, I have a PIII 600, Ge Force2 system. Iīd say itīs average regarding speed.
Rob, you have to hold the ball in the upper third of the room, and in one of the two corners there. I have had a score of 174 but the guy who runs the site has taken the highscores offline, because of hacking.
I tried your little strategy but it doesn't seem to work for me i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif I'll get it up there but after a couple clicks, the sucker ricochets off the wall too fast.
06-16-2001, 10:47 PM
Yeah, that's my problem too DJ. I can go good for a while and then it always ricochets real fast i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif .
06-16-2001, 10:50 PM
I DID IT!! I DID IT!!! i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif 60 WOOHOO!! i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif .
06-16-2001, 10:56 PM
HOLY SH!T! i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif 84. I'm on a roll tonight. YEAH BABY i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
06-16-2001, 11:09 PM
Ahh, I suck again i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif .
Anyway, I'm gonna post this at fanhome, alright DJ? I'll give you the credit. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
06-16-2001, 11:50 PM
ARGH i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif . I give up. I'm goin to bed. Later all i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .
06-17-2001, 11:33 AM
Yeah...if you get it in one of the corners you can get like 5 or 6 hits that way. I get really pissed off when I click the freakin' ball but it doesn't bounce back up.
06-17-2001, 11:54 AM
I also get out most of the time because it bounces really fast towards the bottom.
06-17-2001, 12:57 PM
LOL Tiger i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif . I swear that happens to me everytime. I click on the ball and it just keeps falling i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif . Pisses me off. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
06-17-2001, 05:12 PM
Well the scoreboard is fixed, but if ya wanna get in the top 100, you gotta get like 90 or something i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif . And also the ball is different. I swear it weighs more now. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
06-17-2001, 09:31 PM
06-17-2001, 09:33 PM
Hurry up and look on the leader board...the first few scores are hacked but right now I'm #63 with 158. It kind of got boring after a while.
How the hell are you guys getting such high scores?!! i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif
06-17-2001, 11:01 PM
I don't know..guess I'm just quicker than you. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
06-17-2001, 11:04 PM
Is 73 still your best score DJ? My highest since I got 84 is only 51. I only average like 8,9-14,15 or so. I still suck pretty bad.
06-18-2001, 07:04 PM
Iīm NR. 22 on the highscore list with 973 i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif. I could have gone on, but my ISP kicked me after 15 min. with no data transfer. That kind of irritated me.
06-18-2001, 08:09 PM
Also Nr 33 now, with 663. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
06-18-2001, 08:36 PM
I gotta ditto what DJ said. How the HELL do you get scores that high? i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif I can't even break 35 anymore. i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif
06-18-2001, 08:45 PM
Rob, if you really wanna now: The ball must go short ways, cause then it doesnīt take up speed. But not too short, leaving you room to react. Also if you kick it up and want to klick it again: wait till the ball is nearly where it was before you kicked it the first time (let it go up and down again). If you want to gain height, klick it a little earlier, just before it would reach the old spot. Hope that helps i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
I really havenīt played the game that often. Perhaps 10 or 15 trys so far. Iīve never been under 50, and in my tries today I had 420 at least.
06-18-2001, 08:56 PM
You make it sound too easy i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif . I try hitting it up and down in the middle of the room thingy, but then I always hit the ball just a tiny bit off to the side and the ball goes sideways. Then I can't recover from there. I've also tried bouncing it off the wall but always do the same thing. Miss hit it, and then I'm dead. i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif
06-18-2001, 11:33 PM
I get bored after a while and hope it falls soon...but I don't let it fall on purpose and I don't know why. I just can't quit.
06-24-2001, 12:31 AM
Has anyone done exceptionaly well lately? I think I finally broke myself from playing every spare opportunity.
06-24-2001, 09:04 AM
Nope, I haven't played it for like a week or something.
