Great up-date. That all helps tremendously to the enjoyment of the game.

Now, I'm still not all that sure how the shake thing is meant to help you. If I shake the iDevice, I can't see the screen anymore, and have no idea what is going on. What is it meant to help with?

Cheers
I have never seen this problem before.

Please can you let me know what device you are using are which OS.

Thanks

Wow....did you pimp the tables? They are looking even cooler now.
This "used" effect is fantastic. Love the style and all the little enhancements.

It's just not perfectly smooth anymore on my iPhone 3G with OS 3.0
It was before. But now, it's stuttering slightly from time to time.

I will try to restart my iPhone again. Or perhaps you know a solution?
But besides that, congrats!!! I love it. And just as question, when do you
add the languages?

Best wishes,
Rocco

As I mentioned in the other thread, I started with major performance issues with this update until I did a reboot. But I'm having to do that every time I play now. I didn't have to do that with the previous version.

The new help still doesn't seem to explain the tables, unless I'm missing it. The fact that the goals are unclear is a problem and new additions like a face flashing up on Mutator are only compounding that. Can you add something that takes you through the goals?

Hey Matmi!

What ever happened to the promised scoring FAQ/explanation? I see that this update even has NEW scoring opportunities I can't begin to understand.

Have you checked the new help section on the update? There is some more information on that.

We are also looking into producing a more in depth website with FAQ etc.

What's your score?

963,821! Not great but now having the flippers controllable from anywhere along the borders I know I'll get better with each replay.
