If you have a Game Center account, than there are those leaderboards and achievement buttons at the bottom.

Unfortunately, there's no other way at the moment, though we have your high score saved for the "New record" notification, so this might be a thing for the next update maybe?

It would be interesting to know your reasons for not having a Game Center account, just curious and to help us improve our games.

Thanks!

Duh, thanks! I use Game Center so infrequently I didn't even think to look there.

By the way, I need somebody to come pry my iPad out of my hands. I just have to play Dream of Pixels "one last time" to see how I do!

Well, it may also be that we should make those GC icons at the bottom a bit more noticable.

Btw, did you notice you can send GC challenges straight from the Game Over Screen?

I am really wondering about those, how many people see it, and how many of those send a challenge (or two or more..).

Best move

Someone please tell me.
"Best move*5~9" I can not get the achievement.
Maybe there are other problems, but I think I have met the conditions play many times.

Hey, Tronz,

do you see the achievement notification sliding out when you meet the conditions? If you do, then the problem could be in the game center not syncing its achievements list immediately. We added more GC achievement syncing code with the Decembers update and I assume you have that one installed, but you could check, just in case?

Also, just in case - and for anyone else maybe - you should get the "Best Move x5" achievement by consecutively doing only 4 line clears with the "I-piece", 5 times in a row, without doing any 1-line, 2-line or 3-line clears in between - of course, you can select/drop other pieces in between (to prepare for the next 4-line clear with the I-piece) - hope that matches what you thought are the conditions by reading the (much too) short description we put in the achievements descriptions ?

In any case, if you see the notification slide out, you have definitely met the conditions, and if you don't see it and think you did meet the conditions, then we have a (bigger) problem and it would be awesome if you could help us debug it!

Thanks!

thank you!

Thank you for the detailed explanation.
I did not know that four of erasing the line of succession is me.
(I'm not good in English)
I was able to get the "best move*5" I tried to read the descriptions.
Is difficult.
I do not know what should I do any kind of "free mason" to form.
Could you tell me the symbol of the character?

Ok, if I understand this, you now understand how to do the "Best Move x5" and did it, too - congrats, nice! It is very very difficult, yes!


Free Mason is probably the hardest achievement of them all, comparable maybe only to the "Best Move x9".

You can achieve Free Mason in the Shattered mode by making the bottom of the grid straight and level, like this:
