    Has anyone figured out how to collect the 10x clones power ups from the exit of the circular portal? It looks like you would lose them all later in the level but I can't imagine frogmind putting obsolete power ups, I think it'd more likely to be a challenge I can't yet master.

    It's impossible to get them. :( There's only one clone and it has to be in cube form so it cannot go through the blue portal. There's also not enough time to fly up quickly enough to grab those 3 superclone powerups.

    This is one of the reasons I don't like this level. A bunch of superclone powerups for no reason at all.

    For me the creator may wanna tell us 'If you're so greedy that you want to get so many clones, you have to go through the round portal, which leads you to doom. If you want to survive, you must hold back your lust and leave these three superclones behind. '
    So gloomy. I'd rather know that I was talking nonsence.

    There is so many levels where there is clones to sacrify "just for the fun" (Greenzone or Quad for exemple).
    Here seems just like an horrible trap eheh :)

    I feel this one is really cool as a Race level in Online Mode :)

    Less than ten seconds?! How many clones did you bring home?

    Not really a race level, as good times depend on the number of clones saved. ;-) I've got 15 in the main game, just had a look at the spreadsheet. 28 record! And there are no replays linked in the sheet. Now I always see how @FBI Light Rock holds his clones nicely together as my ghost opponent, but couldn't figure out how. Google, help!
    Ah, thanks @Straitorden :

    Ah, don't make me sound so pro, @n0phun. :mrgreen: I was just lucky enough to get them packed like sardines and sail through the poison blob droplets of death. :)

    Vicvic, I hate you. :mrgreen:

    You need to do it again because you didn't upload. Inconceivable. ;-)

    But I saw only their ghosts, and not their actual surroundings. Bit strange, normally you only need to know whether your opponent is ahead or behind of you.
    Seconded.

    I can only save 30 clones for now... 31 will be there soon I hope :)

    Ok here is my 30 clones record.
    It's less epic, as my perfect run was also a lucky speedrun of 31" :(

    Yes, as a race, this level has 2 fundamental problems: the clone saving possibility is too varied, so your time becomes too dependent on clone-saving skills, rather than speed; and another problem is that your speed isn't varied enough. For a flying-clony race level to be good, there should be an abundance of strategy aspects (in speed) to make speed require skill, which this level doesn't contain. This is why Deadline and Rush succeed as races: You may be a fly clony, but tricky maneuvering is still a challenge. In Esc, these aspects just aren't present.
    I, @InterludeDude, on January 30, 2017, declare the defendant, Esc, guilty of being a faulty online challenge. The sentence will be a slap on the wrist. You are all dismissed.

    Aww, I like ESC. I think it has tricky maneuvering right at the end scene. It may be somewhat dependent on how much nuclear rain is coming down and where, but there's definite maneuvering effect on the outcome.
