Shoot the frog

I scored 92


Each number system has exactly 10 different digits.

Well, beating Eric seems fairly easy, but I haven't gotten 92 yet. Best so far is 87.3 or so, in maybe 30 attempts. I think the goal is to shoot as early as possible without making the frog stick on the first impact.

Got 92.8..That too in less than 15 attempts

The trick is to let the frog come down a bit before you shoot so that it keeps hitting the ground and rolls on.. on.. on...

I got to 91 + a torso once, then 82 once, then not so close. The sweet spot seems touch and go.

The frogs head is now at 93 1/3 (and the feet at 92 5/6).
I wonder what you guys take (in my first message it was the middle of the frog at 92)

A nice game, got 92 in the second try, for the next 50 odd tries never got close to that score , finally when i thought of giving a last try, i did hit the spot at the right time and was able to get 92 +
