This gets easier once you

This gets easier once you realize that you can just land your cactus on the ground if you're worried about going out of control, and you don't even have to land rightside up!

Played for a little bit and got a score of 18.

fork

I hate steering the fork. I can't figure the controls out. My high score is 1.

...I love it. movement is just funny as well, reminds me of hits like QWOP, where the controls are the obstacle

I managed 3. I don't even understand Danni's seemingly simple strategy.

Try to balance your cactus

Try to balance your cactus upright before you thrust. Avoid messing with the controls too much while airborne, especially turning. Let the cactus plop on the ground and repeat.
