Kick Ups…. Way Up

I am not a big fan of the “games on my page” application side of Facebook. I am also not a big fan of soccer, even with all my trips to Europe and me living in Mexico, I have never had a love for soccer. All of that going against it, I still liked a little application called Kick Ups.

The game is simple: see how many times you can hit a soccer ball (or a banana or a picture of your best friend) before it hits the ground.

Sounds simple enough, but like trying to stay balanced on a moving subway train, the action is pretty difficult. I try this every morning on the way to work and tend to fall on my fellow metroriders.

The game has all the bells and whistles we have come to expect from Facebook game. There are invite your friends and leader boards and global domination scores. Ok, I made that last one up.

My only suggestion before starting this game is that you make sure you have a mouse attached to your computer. I have been trying to play this with the tac pad on my laptop and am pretty sure I have carpel tunnel syndrome now.

Now if I can just get my hands working properly I can get back to some real work.
