Lunar Racer: Space Station

Seeing as though times for the Space Station course are the default ranking for Lunar Racer, it's probably the course that I have spent the most amount of time trying to perfect. I play the game on three iOS devices and was fairly happy with my three times of 0:23.18, 0:23.18 and 0:23.27 following the 'Performance Upgrade' of the latest version of the game.

I knew that those times were still far from perfect however and so I recently (and successfully) spent a bit of time trying to improve on them. After frustratingly matching my best time of 0:23.18 several times, I was finally able to crack that hurdle with a time of 0:23.12 and I followed that up a day later on my main device (iPad) with a time of 0:23.10. 



0:23.10 is a VERY fast time for Space Station but it still isn't perfect and I'm surprised that so far "twikkster" is the only other Lunar Racer player that's managed to work out how to get get an 0:23 something time!?

I'm convinced that with all perfectly landed long jumps and two additional Nitro pickups at least an 0:22.99 is possible. I've come incredibly close several times with perfect runs but only picking up 1 extra nitro, picking up 2 extra nitro boosts but then just bumping a landing or two roughly and even more frustratingly nailing my landings, getting the two extra nitro pickups but then hitting a mine or getting hit by a missile just before the finish line......



I'll still play the odd Space Station race now and then but i think I will be leaving my Space Station best time of 0:23.10 as is for the time being unless someone manages to go faster (which is very possible).

Lunar Racer: Space Station

My "New Best!" history for Space Station on my various iOS devices both before and after the performance upgrade update.

Before the performance upgrade update.













After the performance upgrade update.











There are three things that these Lunar Racer Space Station screenshots show:

1: The latest performance upgrade update was worth about 2.5 seconds for Space Station.
2: I am not a Game Center hacker!
3: I have way too much free time on my hands.

Re: Space Station

It's good to see a few other Lunar Racers breaking into the mid and low 0:23 area and a bunch more getting closer to the 0:23 mark also.



I'm convinced that a very high 0:22 is possible after a run of all perfectly landed long jumps, at least one extra Nitro Boost pick up and a racing line that's JUST above the Station surface.

Lap Targets
Lap 1 - 0:08
Lap 2 - 0:15
Lap 3 - 0:22

Re: Space Station

I haven't played Lunar Racer for months and my first race I get a time that's within the top 25 of all time for Space Station.



Not a bad effort!

Re: Space Station

and my third race equals fifth for the fastest time of all time!



Man I did that WAY too easily!
Perhaps it's time for me to again attempt to crack into the high 22s.

Hello 23 second club

Number 13 on the leaderboards


Awesome! Yep there you are in the Number 11 spot actually. Don't give those hacking douchebags in the first 2 spots any credit whatsoever.



Well done. Obviously you've now worked out the fastest racing line and tactics for Space Station and now it's just a matter of refining those and getting a little bit of luck to improve your time even more (hopefully not too much! ).

23.18! #4 in the GC leader boards right behind lunartic, trying to see if a 22 second time is possible, I don't think it is

Woh good stuff! Yep there you are in the new Top 5:



My 0:23.10 was a near perfect run, but it wasn't perfect and so I remain convinced that a very high 0:22 is possible. Unless someone comes along and beats my time, I've got no intention of going after it though.

For your run was it a case of near perfect technique and 1 extra Nitro Boost pick up, or fairly good technique and two extra Nitro Boost pick ups?

Re: Space Station

My run was near perfect with 1 nitro boost pick-up. Spent a very short time with no nitro boost, every time I get 2 nitro pick-up it seems I end up hitting an awkward corner or hitting a mine
