    I know EXACTLY what you mean. This single sentence probably represents the most frustrating part of this game for me. You make your run confident that you've not ticked any car whatsoever, and that's not so easy as we all know, then I look up and the game tells me I've smashed one car. Here's your 300 point bonus! grrr indeed.

    I know the 2 mil is modest for you @John73, though I too have to add - nice score!

    This is a tough game.

    Knowing how each car reacts is pretty important. I can give a brief guide, but playing the game and getting to know each enemy is the only way you'll really learn.

    From top and left to right (and this is from memory and by no means scientifically tested) the basic weight of each enemy is:

    1. Medium 2. Light 3. Light 4. Heavy 5.Medium
    6. Very Heavy 7. Heavy 8. Dump Truck (a simple touch will kill it, be it your car or you nudging another enemy into it) 9. Light 10. Light

    Your car can be considered light.

    The game uses a very basic version of Newton's Third Law of Motion - For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. So if you run full speed directly into the back of a tank (no 6) you are going to lose a lot of speed and you will do next to nothing to the forward momentum of the tank. Do this to one of the lighter enemy cars and you won't lose much forward speed, but you will also pass on a lot of momentum to them and risk send them to their death.

    The heavy cars can be used to your advantage if you need to quickly gain speed, get along side them and nudge the front of their car with the rear of your car. Being heavy, they will not move so there is little risk of them then crashing into a wall and because this is like being hit from behind it will cause their heavy forward momentum to be transferred to your car and give you an immediate boost in speed - more acceleration than is possible by just pressing up on the joystick.

    Hope that makes some sense to someone.

    I don't get caught too often smashing a car and not noticing, but I do get plenty of times when I've 80-95% completed a pattern and then get into a situation where I have to smash a car or die. You're right - it is frustrating, you've just played about 3 minutes and scored probably 1500-2000 points

    This is where I think getting the 10mil goal I'm after is going to be so hard. The game gives you about 10 seconds break between levels, so you just can't play this game forever. Every time you stuff a pattern up, that is like scoring say 5k in 3 minutes (or 100k per hour scoring rate) - 10mil scoring at a rate of 100k per hour would take 100 hours (not possible to play this long for anyone).
