I was reading Penny Arcade and noticed this link. It is quite a interesting program.

Well, looks like some people found out how to explit an error in the physics of the game.

Apparently all you need to do it slam his foot into the ground and it can get stuck...

The foot trick is pretty cool. There's a good deal of randomization in the program, so it can take a lot of turns (even 1000) to get the perfect combination of stats to optimize your points.

But I figured I'd gloat since I managed to squeak by with a slightly higher score than WhiteHat:

He wouldn't even fall down the stairs, I hurt 'im so good!
