TIPS AND TRICKS

• Hint : Tempo plays a big part in the throw, forward motion should match backwards motion in speed or you'll go over the stake.

• A Tip : You can actually control the path of the horseshoe 'in the air' roll the trackball left or right to 'nudge' the flight path.

• A Trick : If you just hit the control key without setting your name after getting a high score, some of the default names you'll get are 'rat', 'dog', 'pig', 'rad'.
