I was going to say... the name needs to be changed to "Dr Device training".

And I think I'm too impatient for this. Clicking in the few three seconds made the first 11 levels or so go pretty fast, but the 12th....

It really is.

A good game, but a little bit too short.

It's slightly more addictive on a Wii.

Okay... I guess I'll kinda keep this on topic and point y'all to Desktop Tower Defense. Which is probably the best game ever. Anyway, I started a score group called "pweb" if you guys wanna show off your exploits.

The same for me. I'm not quite sure why; have we ever played the Game? Not too big a fan of it, myself.

Thank you, Jan. I had just found out I had an extra hour to kill in my day, which I meant to use to exercise.

Then I clicked on that link.

Oh, I also wanted to give a shout-out to eri, whose game has had me much more enticed than the MD Device game, if at all possible.

Well... I think that Desktop TD has more replayability than the little doctor.

Which is exactly why I'm NOT going to click his link.

I'm way too easily amused.

Can't seem to get a high enough score to post my own, though. Sorry, eri. I guess I just suck.

It has taken me three weeks of constant playing, but at last, I was able to get the minimum amount of points to be pinned to the bottom of the pweb group.

WHY OH WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP BUMPING THIS THREAD?

DO YOU HATE ME?!



Alas, I shall not be reading that manuscript tonight.

click. click. click. click...
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

I got all 60 of the dots, on Level 12...

I feel so much better, both beating it (for the 4th time in 3 days... bah...) again, and having gotten all of the dots on one level...

There went some of my day...

And, I got a co-worker hooked...

=)

Thanks JL!

Until I saw that it was timed.
