Link to CAN YOU SURVIVE A 100,000 FOOT DROP!?!?!?

I’ll keep this brief. This is another “noob-place”, one that has had very little work done on it yet mysteriously gets extremely popular. You drive a faulty car until you start falling, but make sure you don’t jump (with the space bar) because you’ll land in lava and die. If you land on the water, you live. Simple as that. There is an admin area, but there does not appear to be a use to it. There is almost no purpose to this place.


Scripting: n/a. No visible scripting, except for the common Admin Door and an interesting Admin Door Spikes script, but if pikachu44344 could script like that, then this place would have been much more interesting. The lava script is so common it isn’t worth giving a mark.
Tools: 1/10. The 1 is because of the parachute. There is also a reset tool (why would you ever bother), a faulty plane tool, and a car tool that doesn’t work very well. Both the plane and car tools are extremely slow. It was faster to walk than to use the car tool… the plane tool didn’t want to tilt up very much, and key controls, like most plane tools, took about 10 key-presses to tilt anything significant.
Building: 2/10. It could’ve been a lot better, but at least some of it was interesting.
General Enjoyment: 0/10. This was definitely not fun.
Originality: 0/10. Do you know how many of these pointless places there are?
Creativity: 0/10. There was a little bit of creativity, but it doesn’t deserve a 1.
Ease of Use: n/a. Unless you count the Tools, but I already rated the tools low for that. Though I noticed the description claims a lag reduction, it was very laggy for some reason. Maybe it was just the horrendously slow car tool that made it appear like it was laggy…
Easy to Learn: n/a. I could rate this 10/10, but that would give a bad impression on the rating ūüėČ In reality, there is nothing to learn at this place.
Deals with Problems: 0/10. The problems I have mentioned should have been addressed by now. They have not, and so I give 0/10.
Deals with Lag: n/a. I can’t say that the description is accurate with this, having no comparison from before. However, there shouldn’t have been any lag in the first place, the place being so small, so… I don’t know…
Bonus: +0.1 for the neat background and the upside-down party hat which you start in. Neat graphics, in other words.

Overall: 0.6/10. It probably doesn’t even deserve that. How 441 people have found this worth favouring, I will never understand. This is a pointless place. You could experience the same thing by putting 10 bricks with the maximum height allowed for each, and then put a spawn on the top of the pile and¬†a base at the bottom. Decorate the base, add an admin room, and you’ve got a potentially better place than this.

My question: Is there a place I can review that I can give significantly more than 2/10?! PM me if you have any suggestions. Thanks.
