In that time it's become my go-to-game whenever I have a few minutes to kill. It takes about 30 seconds to get going (to the point that it's a challenge once you've played more than 1-2 times), but inevitably you fail and are motivated by seeing the ridiculously high scores others have gotten. The best part of it is simply the pick-up nature: No complex levels, no need for save points, and no time commitments required. If you have a minute or two, ThrottleCopter can banish boredom!</p>
