I also noticed if the game speeds up many times. It actually stops speeding up and sometimes returns to normal speed. Also, I could barely run on the treadmill at 27, but then it went to 41 and I ran on it fine (seemed like 18).

Once I figured this out, it helped encourage me to complete the quests, knowing the game works against itself.

The quests don't work for me, on this game, or really any other...

I can't even get one quest... but a long time ago I would've had about 3 of the quests. How did my young mind do it?

Depends on which way the wind is going. If it is going against the treadmill then it helps you. If it is going with then it just really sucks.

Answer: Wind speed. The point gods are in your favor whenever wind and treadmill directions are in alignment.

I'm still working for the 50,000 point quest, though I've only gotten to about 47,000 points, I think.

Anything beyond 35k points is completely luck. I had to try around 40 times before I finally didn't get stuck with a ridiculous amount of speed increases.

This is the only game for which I may never try to achieve the quests. It's appropriately named (thanks John). I'm almost done with all of the other current quests, so it'd be nice if more came out so I don't end up grinding Saurus. I'll do it! I'll ...

Please don't make me.

You just figured that out? You need to pay attention.

A bit of advice for everyone having trouble with the 50k calorie quest.

Hold down the jump button when the treadmill isn't moving in a way you like. From that point, all you have to do is watch the spikes and time it so you land in front/behind them and not on them, and the wind speed. Only try for running on the treadmill when the wind helps balance you out, or if it's not pushing you one way or another too fast.

Does not jumping get you more points?

I always jumped and tried to run as much into the treadmill as I could... I assumed that was the way to get the most points, since I got points for jumping and direction... Well, I got the 50k alright, after a few tries.

The only trouble with that strategy is when the spikeballs speed up, in which case you have to stop for a moment until the spikeball is at a good place to jump over - as long as you don't die in the process.
