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).
