QWOP Flash Game – By Ray William Johnson

QWOP, just the name of the game gives me chills, or at least thinking about how hard it is. There has to be some sort of strategy/technique to beating the game, well the good news is that there is. QWOP (which I have heard pronounced many ways) is the name of the game simply due to the fact that you use the Q, W, O and P keys to move our athlete.

The objective is to move 100 meters, pretty simple right? Wrong! Our athletic runner seems to be in the paralympics or perhaps he is disabled, seeing that he clearly can’t run. I have been asked several times if there is a QWOP version with cheats, but the answer is not at this point, it would be nice if the game was just a tad easier, but trust me it’s not impossible.

Here are a few tips I can give you about the QWOP game, you can use this as a resource/guide: Alternate between using the WO and PQ keys, press them at just the right time, the game is more about timing than key combination, it’s really tricky because if you time one press off just be a few seconds the entire game is over.

I have only beat the game one time since playing it, my best advice is to keep trying, you’ll get better as you practice. I hope they make a QWOP 2 down the road, I would like to see another game like this but maybe different keys or a different objective. Anyways, as you can see this sports runner game is probably one of the most challenging games of all time, definitely not impossible but still loads of fun.
