Remember those games you played in arcades? This game is based on Whack-A-Mole. There are three things you can whack in Whack-A-Lackey: muggles,
forum moderators, and Groundspeak lackeys. Run to an area and whack the lackey before s/he disappears! Post your high score and its confirmation
code to the cartridge page and compete! Proudly demonstrated at GW6!
Needed to complete the Wherigo Geocache GC1CE5Z.

Updated on 20100618 for stability with OpenWIG. Whack-A-Lackey has also passed 2,000 downloads! You people rock!
This cartridge needs an area the size of a soccer field at the most difficult level.

Just tested on my new Wherigo player for WebOS. Thanks for this cartridge.
I'll play it of course again :) Better than playing bad games on computer.

I updated the cache's final coordinates with this new version. If you intend to find the cache, please use this version.
Also, if you're on Lackey mode, you should be given the unlock code if your score is high enough.

Today was our second day of playing this cartridge. I must say that 92+ degree full sun makes it even more challenging. The GPSr delay on the iPhone complicated things a bit but we managed to get our exercise and whack the lackeys. This will be fun to do back home just to play again.

Have a new Oregon 450 which we assumed, from the advertising, was designed to play Wherigoes. It plays the preloaded Wherigo tutorial and Snakes and Ladders, but completely failed to play two of stegan's new Wherigoes. So, stopped at the sports ground on the way home from work and tried to Whack a Muggle. Totally grey screen on first pressing Play caused conniptions. Turned it off and on again, and then the game worked perfectly. Some high school students walking home obviously wondered about why a person in a high-vis jacket and bike helmet was running about erratically... next time I'll add a brown paper bag over my head to ensure anonymity. High score 159, confirmation code 219478. It was great fun, thanks Ranger Fox. This game must be quite similar in programming format to stegan's "Can you run faster than a 10 year old" so I do wonder what's going wrong there. Would someone with programming experience be able to help?
