Yeah, it seems like this game is not popular at all or Game Center isn't making the connections. Sometimes I just start looking for a random game, then surf the web until it finds another player, or times out... Then I just restart again then surf the web some more...

Yeah, adding a little to syntheticvoid's comment... I seem to run into the same few players from time to time (especially the people with high number of wins on gamecenter). I find the skills pretty varying. I'd have to say I can beat at least 1/2 of the opponents I've faced so far pretty easily (and I don't think I'm good). I'm starting to "let" games be close, or lose a few times so people won't quit on me.

The good ~1/4 of players are pretty hard to play against. If I beat them, sometimes it feels like an accomplishment and sometimes it feels like luck/or they let me. The last 1/4 of the time, its the most fun finding people of the same skill. These games keeps going back and forth.

I find most of the time, people will play up to ~5 games at most. Most people pick only the first map (maybe thats the only map most people have unlocked). I like to keep rotating through the different maps though for variety. I think one time, I played over 15-20 games against one opponent and had a blast...

Definitely. Go add him on GC; from what I've observed, he'll be able to catch a few games with you quite often. He's definitely one of the best players. Won a lot fewer times than I lost against him, that's for sure.

Found the kabutan, picked it up, but failed to return to the goal (not enough time)

I knew now where to find that damn kabutan, but the problem is it never appear again. Why?

The only advice is to keep trying and try to remember how to trigger the kabutan. For future runs, try to just go only for the hidden triggers for the kabutan and skip as many of the other hidden triggers. Some of the later levels took more tries then I'd like... but I got them all in the end...

Really wasn't interested in this game when it first came out, but the recent revival has piqued my interest. It seems like there are at least a few people still playing this game. Maybe I should just go get my butt kicked in multiplayer...

The last boss was pretty difficult for me. Do you have max number of lives? I think I beat the last boss eventually by dying so much until I had the max number of lives, then eventually on a good run, I was able to beat him. I still can't beat the last boss even 25% of the times when I try...
