This is a pretty good QWOP.

This is a pretty good QWOP. It reminds me of Olympic Games computer games from the Apple IIgs era. It took me a while to realize that the starting line has no meaning whatsoever.

I kind of, uh, hit it in midair just right and launched it so far that it went into an infinite black void? 468 inches and still going....

I love these kinds of games.

I love these kinds of games. Haven't managed to get the orange further than 25 inches yet, though. I can't help but think that this concept would also work well as a volleyball game.
