A Hole In Four

Odd that the '4' in Compydore 64 hasn't got a hole in. Alarming attention to detail in this, though: the commands in the loading screen would load a game from disk on an actual Commie, and the "Population" bit of the logo is in the Commdore's infamous 2x1 resolution multicolour mode...

Background sky

The sky in the background changes according to your system clock. Change it to 5:00 AM and you'll see orange sunrise. Change it to a midday time, and you'll see blue sky. Change it to night time and the sky will be dark.

Kinda Cheating

If you pause the game, the tire will still bounce while the background remains the same. This gives you the opportunity to bounce the tire above a bird/ The Cheat/ Strong Sad/ a balloon, and quickly hit play. This will give you extra point and time to aim for your target. -- Homeschool Winner 01:58, 13 May 2005 (UTC)

I Feel Asleep

This question was asked as a comment in RWR.

Can somebody pleaSE explain how "I FEEL ASLEEP!" is a reference to the original "Metal Gear" game for NES.

I've never played the game, but a little googling turned up this. -- tomstiff 17:01, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Here you go, from Zany Video Game quotes:
I feel asleep!

Bonus Clarification?

Do the Strong Sad effects "2X" and "-2X" increase/decrease your multiplier by two, or double/half it? I'm pretty sure it's double/half, but it's been awhile and I just can't seem to hit those again. -GG Crono
Its Multiplier +/- two not double/half. its not hard to hit strong sad. you just suck. Xifihas

You forgot something.

The name of this game comes from the song "Strong Badia National Anthem" The last thing in the song that Strong Bad sings is "Population Tire"

No, I don't think so. The stop sign in Strong Badia reads "Population: Tire". -- 22:13, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Indeed. It was Weekly Fanstuff back in May 2007. Phlip is also a sysop on this wiki. Loafing 08:05, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
