Swingin' For the Fences

For the last few months, we've been developing what I think is one of the coolest additions ever to brooklyncyclones.com -- an online home run derby called Swingin' For The Fences (SFF), brought to you by Fillmore Real Estate.

SFF lets you take your hacks inside a virtual version of KeySpan Park. You can take aim at the signature scoreboard, neon lights, and more! And watch what happens when you actually hit the targets (spoiler alert: especially the roller coaster at the top of the screen).

It's loads of fun, and incredibly addicting (I've been able to disguise hours of unproductive home run hitting as "website research"). Even if it might take you a while to get the hang of it...Steve, this means you.

Right now, I'm the undisputed champ...check out the high scores if you don't believe me! (I admit, it's not 100% fair since I've been the one working on the game throughout its development, but hey, you take every advantage you can get, right?).

So click here, grab a bat, and start Swingin' For The Fences to see if you can knock me off the throne!

And stay tuned throughout the season...we'll give away prizes for top scorers and do a live derby at the ballpark between innings of every game!

Not for nothing but the game seems kind of hard to play on a laptop using the touchpad. Unless it's just me as I'm not a big computer game person.

Sorry Dave, you are no more the #1… ;)

Btw when will this contest finish ? When will you stop the rankings ?

Anyway, cool game !

You maybe should save only one highscore per player. Or it would be easy for the high-scorer to have most of the 2O first scores.
