Highscore: 931040
Traced with Finger: 1206m

Bonus Coins: 0 (I assume this means iap bought??)

Superb game!

I think you get bonus coins for stringing together 10 rats or wolves. I didn't manage yet so i'm not sure.

Some beavers are hiding, some beavers are invisible, some are moving and some are just plain elusive and then there are the 'Beavers in Disguise'.

Yeah, I set the game aside the moment it started crashing endlessly upon startup, with the few successful attempts to get into the game resulting in blank details, wiped scores, and "Null" and "No String" messages everywhere.

There's no point playing at all as long as this bug persists, so we'll see what happens with the update.

Guys,

Fix is already done and submitted. As I wrote, if you really want to keep your progress wait until apple approve it.

Bonus coins - coins which you can collect from tier3 resourcesx10.

Best

Was this submitted as a critical update? I know sometimes Apple can push through urgent fixes very quickly as opposed to the normal 4-5 days.

And, to me, this is a critical update. I haven't bothered to play since I lost my progress.

Just wanted to post on here to see if anyone else was getting the same thing and if there was a fix for this. I really like this game and would love to continue playing it without having to start back over.
Just happened to me, bummer.

I can confirm that one can do this with Apples and Cows relatively easily late in the game. However, to do this with Gold and Diamond is not possible (as far as I know) with getting first the vent building. I am currently on a different build that deliberately avoids any explosion (I have 0 explosion so far and am already near end of the game), and the mine levels are ridiculously hazardous, making the lamp an extremely valuable resource which itself is also ridiculously rare to get because dirt is very rare in this level (without using the shop to buy them, which is also my perquisite for this build).

Know it sucks, but I still don't regret the time I played it.
I only wish I stuck with Puzzle Quest 2 because I would of made significant progress in the time it took me to build a village that disappeared in Puzzle Craft.

Yes, I enjoyed it while it lasted but I still feel I wasted my time.

If I do get my village back after the update then all will be forgiven. I just hope they fix the problem that wiped the data in the fist place so that it won't happen again.....could we get a conformation on that?
