Run! Jump! Duck! Welcome to Optical Course, the greatest, and most difficult, laser obstacle course you’ve ever seen. Brought to you by Jalove, a thirteen-year-old life-long burner, and Nacho Bracken, her father. This narrow, 3.3-foot-wide, 32-foot-long pathway is packed with lasers… break even one beam, and you will face excruciating pain as you’ve never felt before… Just kidding. At least two modes of play: Cowardly (a.k.a. Easy) and Doomed (a.k.a. Hard). You MIGHT survive Cowardly mode but your victory will be tainted by your unwillingness to play the REAL way. The real way is, well, to put it in a word, impossible. The Star of Death, climax of Optical Course, will surely fell you. But good luck. This is Optical Course, and you are doomed to fail.
