Think I just got about as good as I can do in a complete run, with 2,242. I'm also glad the levels aren't randomly stitched together, as there's some great level design here with risk reward and quick reflex situations.

There may be an issue with unlocked character and checkpoint achievements. I watched ads to get all the characters pretty quickly, however no achievements unlocked. I bought more than 5, but less than 10 checkpoints, so I only have the 5 achievement unlocked. But when I bought a checkpoint, I think all the previous ones unlocked as well, because all 20 are available on the level select menu. This makes it impossible to buy more and get the achievements.

I've never liked achievements earned for losing at the game, as I usually end up mindlessly dying and restarting over and over until I get them. 3 achievements for "collecting x red stars in a single run," "collecting x hourglasses in a single run," and "collecting x stars and x hourglasses in a single run" would've been more fun instead of the dropping ones. Don't think achievements can be deleted after a version with them goes live though, but those could still be a fun addition.

Check out my game Risky Bee!

Congrats Matt33 on the new highscore you set, this will be hard to beat.

Wowsy ha ha, just became number one on this fun arcade/twitcher with 2298 points, and there is room for improvement because I did not finish the game in one sitting, I was at level 20 but made a mistake so I think 2330 or 2340 points are possible, will try that tomorrow.

Impressive! Congrats! I noticed when I chose more stars than hourglasses, I'd tap and it would be too early or late and I'd drop, so it would become too fast for me. Well done going faster, and good luck hitting 2300+

Thanks Matt33, there is a hacker now on number one with 3062 points and that is as you know not possible, hope he will be removed or else it would not be fun anymore.

Yeah I got all the red stars otherwise you can't get that score.

That score of 3062 points is not possible right ha ha, I think the release date should be 27-4, great that their are new levels coming, I mastered all the levels, need to work on level 20 a bit, it's very exciting to do those 20 levels in one go without making a mistake, it's heartpounding sometimes.
