The QWOP Strategy Guide

QWOP Guide: Most of you would have heard of QWOP (but if you've just crawled out from under a rock, play it now! Just remember to come back to this page in two hours when you give up). This is just a quick hub which reveals not the meaning of life, but something far more inportant - the QWOP strategy guide.

The objective of this annoyingly addictive game is to somehow move this (ex-contortionist and obviously alcoholic) Olympic runner 100 metres to the finish line. The only trouble is, this medical marvel of an athlete has no bones, and is cursed with the coordination abilities of drunk hippo.

The only user controls are the "Q," "W," "O" and "P" keys, which, through some super-human feat, you must use to get the runner to the finish line.


The QWOP Strategy Guide:

Now although some people has achieved the full 100 metres using techniques which make the poor runner look like he has some incurable, spastic twitch, there is actually a certain strategy to this game.

Although it took me three weeks solid to figure out (I've got to get out more), the trick to beating QWOP is actually quite simple. Keys "W" and "O" control the left leg, while "Q" and "P" control the right. This means that all you have to do is alternare the pairs of keys at the optimal time (when the runner's raised, front foot is about 6 inches from the ground) in order to get the beautiful running motion that evolved, modern-day man has aquired (and NOT the peculiar technique this "special" athlete is inclined to).

And that's all there is to it : W&O, Q&P, W&O, Q&P, W&O, Q&P... all the way to the finish line!


UPDATE!: New game combines 'QWOP' with 'Operation' in open heart surgery! Check out the game by clicking here, and make sure you read my side-splitting article tips here!
