Check this cool game / test:

I tried a couple of times and I made a not so good 5.04 and then 3.70.

Bye!

Wasn't familiar with all the English terms, but at least I could guess what they meant. Too bad that it's a single "click-and-release", the mouse cursor makes it a bit difficult to do this accurately. After the first run (where I got a relatively bad score on the parallelogram because I didn't know it was one-click-and-release) with a laptop touchpad, I had an average of 6.40... let's see what the combined total is.

Btw, for the "right angle", do you simply have to do a 90 degree angle, or match the length as well?  :tellme:
Your inaccuracy by category:

Parallelogram 13.2 5.4 13.0
Midpoint 0.0 4.1 4.0
Bisect angle 2.6 1.1 2.8
Triangle center 6.1 3.8 5.7
Circle center 3.2 4.0 4.5
Right angle 3.7 4.4 5.2
Convergence 16.0 20.6 7.3

Average error:    6.22   (lower is better)

Nice little game - guess I should try it with a mouse :P

EDIT: added tabs to align the table.

simply right angle
I misread the equidistant to edges as equidistant to corners which gave me a very high score first attempt :)

3.2 for me.

Didn't realize there was more than one. My first run through all of them (left column) averaged 2.83.

There, mouse and zooming in firefox (the flash applet was a bit small in 1280x1024 - yeah yeah, this could be considered cheating :))

omg I was so bad: 24.20

but I must say, I needed 3 "things" to figure out how to work it, and a complete round to understand what was asked of me.
