it seems that the blocks follow the same pattern every time, making it easy to plot out a safe route system.... sadly, even WITH that info, the best I can do is 21.766 :(

21.219 & 21.218 in consecutive tries (after about 5 minutes of playing). I could only go for another 2 or 3 minutes, then my eyes went buggy from staring at the screen.

This is definitely tougher than it looks.
