Air Force Test

This will drive you nuts!! Have fun!

The object of the game is to move the red block around without getting hit by the blue blocks or touching the black walls.

If you can go longer th an 18 seconds you are phenomenal. It's been said that the US Air Force uses this for fighter pilots. They are expected to go for at least 2 minutes.

Give it a try but be careful...it is addictive I got less than 5 sec.

After a whole bunch of runs at it, I got up to 15 sec a couple of times. Dang thing starts speeding up the moving blue blocks after 10 seconds!! Fortunately, the pattern of movement of the blue blocks repeats itself each time you play. If you can remember the pattern of movement, you'll know where you can take your red block and hang out for a while from time to time, avoiding all the blue blocks.....til they start heading your way again!

Two minutes for USAF fighter pilots? Glad I never tried to sign up for that!!

That test had already driven me crazy when someone posted it some time ago on TOTV.

I will never get to the two minute level. The longest I lasted was around 23 seconds. And that is after hours after noticing the pattern it seems to have for the first 18 seconds or so.

Got to 14 seconds. Takes more patience than I have to get it higher. I can't even imagine going 2 minutes (and I hate to imagine how fast the blue blocks are going then).

Default Fun....

How is this score below? Where is my jet?

The Villages Florida

169 seconds, pretty good huh? Yeah right, no chance..... once I got 13.4 seconds. This is very hard, it makes me long for the "click on the bouncing balloon" game from a few weeks ago.

The more I tried the more I thought NO WAY does every pilot need to pass this. USA would have alot of jets sitting on tarmacs . I found this link online:
