Your response to my request for help with lines of inquiry that I should be pursuing with the King, is to give the Internet-equivalent of "Make sure your computer is plugged in and turned on"?! Cripes! I definitely have an internet connection while playing this game. That most definitely is not the problem.

I was hoping you'd provide some tips for bettering kingly conversations, but given this I'm starting to understand why I'm having so much difficulty speaking with the king.

Obviously I am not "lucky" then, and your King's vocabulary must be extremely limited, because here are some things I would expect would get a response yet result in a blank stare and an "I don't know what that means."

George C. Scott
Platoon
sand
beach
golf ball
humpty dumpty
egg
art of war
battle
arms
nuclear
lutefisk
bridge
fairy tale
no clothes
oddbody
king odd body
present
gift

So, obviously my mind works very differently from King Oddball's. Can anyone who has played this game please give me useful hints on lines of inquiry that would result in more fruitful conversations? Thanks!

Found it! It suddenly appeared in the rock level main room this afternoon. It wasn't there this morning. And yes, I had full internet both times.

Now FREE for the first and a limited time (at least in Austrian app store. I am sure the world in west direction of us will follow soon). Tried it for some minutes and it's pretty crazy, tricky and with lots of puzzles. Sounds and graphics are excellent. Perfect casual game with accurate one-touch-controls. Recommended!

Thanks to dev!

Ask him about a certain month of the year where people grow something on their faces for charity for a cool surprise. Or about his tongue.. that too.

Happy Oddballing!

Ok then, I guess you've run into a known but obscure bug. Sometimes the Odd Phone network connection just fails, even though the device is connected. Restarting the device fixes the issue as far as we know, but we haven't been able to debug it as we haven't been able to reproduce the issue on our devices.

It's a real shame and we apologise for the issue, and we'll also fix it once we figure it out. The same functionality is on http://www.kingoddball.com, so that can be used for testing. (in fact if you say "vocabulary", The King let's you know how many words he knows)

As for where The King's responses come from, it's a simple popularity contest We look at the things people have said to him, and add an answer to those words / phrases. And of course for stuff that comes to our minds, like a reaction to the name of the incredibly skilled player Snooptalian, who beat The King's Diamond Challenge blazingly fast a while a go.

Ooo, thanks for the suggestions, especially about tongues! That's a good one!

Okay, thanks! Will do. I did not realize you could use the website to test out responses. That's very helpful!

I'm not sure why I seemingly dismissed this game when it first released. I've enjoyed some of 10tons' other games, especially Sparkle the game; and this one was released on my birthday, which might have been a sign. I've been playing this for a while now, and I'm quite embarrassed that I've got this game for free.

So far, the game is just excellent, and highly recommended at the original price. It's worth even more than that, but don't get me started on App Store pricing.

So to ease my guilty conscience I will purchase another 10tons game that has gone unnoticed by me, Grim Joggers. It's also very likely that I will be grabbing 10tons' next effort the minute it hits the store.

Thank you.

Guys, this game is seriously better than Angry Birds. At least for me it is a lot more satisfying to play.

Thank you for the freebie.

Wow I'm so glad I stumbled upon this game recently. Admittedly a little late to the party but sure having a blast! Love it!

I can't seem to get one of the 'staches though. The one where you delete a profile. I create several profiles and delete them all but that darn 'stache never appears there.

Has it been moved to a different location? Thanks!

It's been indeed moved. The current location is somewhere around a place where you get just one shot...
