[edit] Instructions

A Bronco Trolley is Homestar Runner's favorite after-school snack. It is made by spreading peanut butter on a Triscuit, and topping it with a slice of orange. Help him make as many Bronco Trolleys as possible by clicking on the Triscuit, the peanut butter, and then the orange. Work fast; you've only got 30 seconds.

You done good!
  • Low score (less than 10 points) : (Homestar is emaciated and looks concerned) "That's not a very good score. Homestar Runner is wasting away to almost nothing. Do better!"
  • Medium score (between 10 and 15 points) : (Homestar looks normal) "That was pretty good. If you try harder, you'll probably do better. Look at him standing there. He needs more food!"
  • High score (above 15 points) : (Homestar is fat and looks satisfied) "Wow! You done good! Homestar looks like he appreciated your help. I wonder if he could eat a few more."

  • In the l33t Interview, Mike Chapman said that Bronco Trolleys were inspired by a dream he had when the site started. He never actually ate one until later.

[edit] Remarks

[edit] Glitches

Super high score!
  • The game can be cheated by pressing Tab+Enter. Using this method can make well over a hundred Bronco Trolleys.
    • If the player is good with this trick, try holding down the Enter key on the orange slice. If the timing is right, the score will go through the roof and the player can get over 800 Trolleys (but the third digit is not fully visible).
    • If the player quickly and repeatedly press Enter on the peanut butter in order to bring up maximum oranges, then press Enter repeatedly on one of the oranges, it causes the count to go so fast that the timer apparently freezes. This way, infinite points can be scored. After the finish, if the player let go, it shows the timer as higher than 30.
    • There is a problem with this trick on some browsers; Tab can easily go to the Navbar on the bottom of the screen or to the URL bar on their browser, and if the player presses Enter, the Toons menu comes up or the page refreshes, canceling the game.
    • Another simple cheat is to click on the same cracker repeatedly, causing it to duplicate.
  • There is also a method for getting infinite time. Get to the screen with the red start button and use a seek bar. Drag the button to the right a little, causing the game to start, but with the time as zero. This way, the game can be play forever.
    • In the flash file, infinite time can also be obtained. On the screen with start button, right click and click on "play". It starts the game, but the clock stays at zero and never goes up so the game can be played forever.
  • Pressing Tab and both Enter keys at the same time causes whatever is next to duplicate. If two people are playing, one can press the Tab key and the other can press both enter keys.
  • Click and hold a food, and drag the mouse away from it. It will not be collected.
