Joined the Forums just to say that this is one on of my favorite games this year.
Nothing has grabbed me in the past months like this and Punch Quest. A must-have on any device if you ask me.

Don't know if you guys plan on updates, but I think that while it's excellent already, adding challenges for more tickets would make it even more addicting, and specific lanes with tropes, quirks and difficulty (moving targets, changing where the holes are, etc.) would definitley have me playing even more.

Having sunk 4-5 hours already, this is famtastic. Has some bugs in the online, and that too could be expanded, but honestly, great job!

I think I found a glitch with the multiplayer notifications. I tried turning off the sound notifications as well as the banner alerts through the settings menu and both are not working because I'm still hearing the sounds and alerts.

Any possible fix for this?

Awesome, awesome, awesome game! My wife and I loved the first one, but this one is so much better with the asynchronous multiplayer. I like the way the prizes are organized into themed collections.

A+++ This is a must have!


I do have one complaint/request, though. Every time I want to play a match with my wife, I have to do a game center invite. After three or four matches, it starts to get pretty old. Can we just get a rematch button?


Also, I think i came across a bug. I went to start a new random game and got a message that I needed to delete the finished games from my list. It gave me two options, have my finished games deleted or let me do it manually. Regardless which one I pick, nothing happens. I assume that's normal for the do-it-myself option, but I assume the other option is supposed to clear out the whole list all at once.

Which IAP to you think is better the ticket multiplier or the coin multiplier?

Tickets are for prizes
Coins are for power ups
Hope this helps

The ticket multiplier for sure, unless you don't care about collecting prizes.

I bought the ticket multiplier right of the bat. This game is a steal at a buck, so I felt that throwing a couple more bucks at it was worth it.

Once you buy the doubler, you can spend another $.99 to upgrade it to a quadrupler. I didn't notice this at first, but once I saw it I didn't hesitate to grab it. So quadruple tickets for three bucks.

I haven't purchased the token doubler (yet), but I assume it's the same setup.


On the topic of the ticket doubler, does it apply to multiplayer games? I'm assuming so, since I'm getting a load of tickets from wins (before the wager and win multipliers are calculated). I'm guessing the IAP ticket multiplier is already calculated into that "net" amount of tickets you get from on online match. It's just not apparent, is all.

Great game. My son loves it too.

Multiplayer is slow though (slow to load the game list, to delete a game and to start a new game). At least here.

I hope to see more prizes soon! I have almost finished all collections.
