Disc Drivin’ Phantom Floor
You win some, you lose some. And sometimes Disc Drivin decides to give your opponents a leg up at your expense. This isn’t the first time I have seen this happen and I am sure it won’t be the last. Not sure yet the rhyme or reason of this ‘bug’ but it only seems to happen if you are landing and have used your speed boost.
Setting Up For Failure
Little does he know, that this swipe will not get him the edge on the competition. Instead it will drop him through the floor.
Boost And Jump – Looking Good
The turn is still looking good here for mister 1st place, however the DD gods are not happy with him.
Coming In For The Landing
Still looks like a perfectly fine turn but there is a certain evil lurking.
Wait What? Quicksand‽
Where’d he go?
Remember to never anger the DD gods or you might just fall through the floor.
In case you didn’t know, Disc Drivin’ is the best iOS game around. It is the main reason one might own an iDevice actually. This will likely be one of a series of Disc Drivin related posts as this blog is about things I am interested in. DD as it is commonly referred to at work, is an integral part of our team. It gives us a nice couple of minute break, some competition, and some common ground on which we can all relate.
Bumper Beware – A Deadly Course
Bumper Beware is by far one of my most favorite courses in DD. The fairly simple jump that takes a bit of planning can make for a fun comeback or just a way to lap people and laugh. In case you do not know what I am referring to there will be some screenshots below.
Step 1 – Placement
Like most shortcuts in Disc Drivin’ placement before the jump is key here. Also: Don’t Try this without prior power up.
Setp 2 – Timing of The Jump
Along with this step it is worth noting that your speed is important and for this jump you should be able to go close to full speed.
This is less of a step and more of an outcome of careful preparation and flawless execution. Well Done!
