What is "boosting"?
|"Boosting" refers to a "feature" in the MS game engine, where right after Chip moves from a slipping terrain (eg. ice, force floors) into a non-slipping terrain, he gets to make his next move immediately. This saves you a tiny amount of time, and doing it enough times can gain you a second or two (or more).|
Needless to say, boosting is one of the most basic tricks employed by the competitive players.
