App description: Time Ducks will take you back in time in more than one way:
It is a through-and-through homage to the adventurous spirit and pixel art of the arcade games from the hey-days.
You simply control the safe passing of a variety of animals across a road brimming with infuriated drivers in order to boost your multiplier, and unlock an ever unfolding universe of illogical logic ranging from Justin Bieber through a +5 Machete all the way to the recipe for a very tasty rabbit stew...
Oh, by the way, you also control time.

What they said:

[...] it is one of the most unique experiences on any platform, and comes highly recommended for the iPad and iPhone.

But 1.49 [prize has been lowered even further] is a small price to pay for a game that most will happily fritter away an afternoon or two with.
Time Ducks may not be the finest iOS game of the year, but its easily one of the most memorable.

The clash of the superb sound with the comically nave artwork - and a few genuinely funny lines - is enough to keep Time Ducks on the right side of twee indie whimsy. But of course, what matters is a moreish pot-pourri game design that mixes Braid's time manipulation in with Frogger, that ios game about landing planes and a gloriously illogical hierarchy of animal
combo scoring.
-Eurogamer [Game of the week 2011-12-09]

Aside from the solid gameplay, Time Ducks is also brimming with personality. The tutorial is packed with humor and the pixel visuals are simple but eye catching. There are also tons of funny achievements and tiny bits interspersed through the game which will almost always
draw a chuckle. [...] it's actually one of the most fun and interesting line drawing games I've ever played. Definitely give it a look.

[...]the highscore table and note-perfect humour (which, just like the
pixel-art graphics and whimsical audio, strikes the perfect balance between faux-naivety and self-awareness) proves more than enough to keep you playing in the traffic.

"[...]so the brain will melt nicely."
"Contrary to associate with the kitsch look, pure logical game design."

Even before the addition of 12-minute challenge and the excellent
mindcraft mode this was one of the best uses of your app money.

PLEEEEASE tell me I'm missing something obvious!

While adopting GC is well and good, it would appear once signed into GC the scores section will only show me the global top 10 scores in the two game modes!

Uhm, I'd much rather see MY top local score than a bunch of likely unobtainable scores! Showing the top 10 global scores is useful, don't get me wrong, but somewhere on that screen I still need to see my personal top score and, as an extra, maybe where that ranks (even if it's 2,546th). More useful to me would be my GC friends top 10, but even then I'd need to have easy access to my own personal top score.

It always astounds me when developers forget that many of us are really concerned with just breaking our own records. As it stands I guess I can only see my own scores locally if I play the game in Airplane mode.
