The solutions shown in post 1530 are a great example of how you have to think outside the box to get the very best scores - and why cy@n is the top legitimate score on the leaderboard. All but one of the examples I've found on youtube use the "obvious" approach. I'm pretty sure the exception I found will no longer will work (it has the orange falling out of sight, but apparently late enough that it still counted as a victory). I've seen that on other levels, but only with the old version, years ago. I haven't seen that work with the present update to 64-bit version.

I've also only succeeded in replicating the one where the barrel ends right next to the "elevator" so even seeing these solutions, I can't do them all!

I've been waiting for that. I mean, it seems logical, yet it hadn't happened. Have you tried other levels unsuccessfully but enough to see if you could do it elsewhere? I'm definitely not the right person to test this!

What about 997 in a level (#22 for instance) with 7 objects then?

Did you get that? I just raised my score yesterday on it (still 1 behind the best) and was thrilled because it is so hard to release fast and still get the final piece in the right place. Hard to even know when it is the last piece when going fast!!!

At least, I think, that is the only one with 7 objects. And I believe there are only 7 levels with 5 pieces. Unless my chart is wrong.

But this all also shows why we know the two top scores are hackers. Sure, a really fast player may get the maximum of 999 even with three objects, but have to work at it. But that being the case, no way to they get 999 if there are 7 objects (or even 4 objects). Yet those two players have to have perfect 999 scores on every level. Furthermore, they got their score years ago, back when no one ever got a higher score on any level above 992. It was the fairly recent update that let us get up to 999 in some cases.

Wow, I can't imagine how he did #5, though #289 looks like what I did.
