This is a difficult flash game. All you have to do is control a runner's thighs and calves -- independently -- using the Q,W,O, and P keys.

I'm having a hilariously difficult time getting anywhere at all. \:\)

I'm laughing too. Good one. I've kept a tab open to try again when no one's here.

Only 1.9 meters in 30-40 seconds of trying so far. Mostly I fall down with a negative result.

I wouldn't call it running, but my guy did 3.1 meters in the difficult splits/shuffle gait.

Screw that! After 15 tries and my greatest distance is 3 meters (I got just as far going backwards too), I'm done.

Although, I bet if I just tried to run slowly since there is no clock, I'd do better. Bah. Now I've got to try again.

5.4m but I looked like the Road Runner during one of those slo-mo parts where they put the pseudo-latin name under him.

Also, QWOP's pelvis would have shattered the way I had him "running"

17.2 metres. I really thought I could go all the way, but I somehow got of my stupid but effective cycle.

That's way too long Charles. Get a life. Or twin EP800, whichever comes first!

Is that hurdle giving you menopause?

qwopopowq, not menopause.

My strategy has been to tap O to bring a foot back and then hit Q+P and then W+O in pairs. The hard part is keeping him leaning forward consistently.

I don't have a shot of the hurdle, but here I am at 45.5 meters.



I look/feel exhausted.

You ran 45.5 meters and posted 11000 times using only QWOP! \:\)
