My best distance was 634 (after about 20 attempts - i.e. 4 games)
Accuracy was 900 (again 4 games)
Power shot (or whatever they call it) was deadly! - I had destroyed it after 5 attempts (i.e. after first game)

Not one setting came as a result of math/physics calculations...simple trial/error followed by logic. I didn't feel like forcing my brain to work on Sunday, even though I had enjoyed solving these kinds of problems in my Physics classes.

<stupid question>Metric option, please?</stupid question>

I know, I know... the formulae etc are just the same, just feed in feet and get feet as results. But it spoils my mental maths.

Interestingly, g is shown as 9.8. Isn't that m/sec^2?
