"Rock and roll, baby!"

Limozeen's Hot Babelien Odyssey is a mini-game by Videlectrix from Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People's Baddest of the Bands.

The game consists of using your ship's "tractor beam" to pick up alien women stranded on a planet's surface while dodging and shooting Gibson Flying V model guitar-shaped mines and Nebulon. It was first seen in Everything Else, Volume 3 as the background of the Bonus menu, and as a game played by Mary Palaroncini in the bonus short The Limozeen Advantage.

A score of 50000 is required for your awesomeness rank.

Scores

  • Rescuing a Babelien: 100 points times the level number, +1 to Babelien count
  • Shooting Nebulon: 10 points times the level number
  • Shooting Patch Overlord: 50 points times the level number
  • Nebulon stealing a Babelien: -50 points, -1 to Babelien count
  • Shooting a Babelien: 0 points
  • Missiles and Flying Vees: 0 points

Tactics

Since the score for rescuing a Babelien is dependent on the level, but losing a Babelien to a Nebulon is not, it is actually smart to let Nebulons steal Babeliens, and then just pick up more with the tractor beam. It is possible to stay on level 2 almost indefinitely by letting Nebulons steal as many Babeliens as you pick up, trying to keep the Babelien count at 3-4/6. For every Babelien stolen and then pickup again you get 200-50=150 points. Since there is nothing shooting at you on level 2, the only thing to watch out for are Flying Vees and Nebulons stealing Babeliens too close to the ship. Don't let Nebulons pick up Babeliens too close to the ship, be very careful if Babelien count reaches 5/6 so it doesn't level up, and don't keep more than one Nebulon hovering back and forth, and an awesome score of 50000 will eventually be reached.
