Unfortunately, Ooboom just ousted you from #1 position in chapter 1...

We're still fixing the iCloud thing... nasty one, it's not very easily reproducible.

When the iCloud thing is fixed will we be able to sync the progress across multiple devices?

In case we get this thing to work as expected, then yes. Things have changed a bit in iOS 6.1 and the code needs a complete rewrite as we've used an external plugin.

There is no merge operation for the data, so only the latest profile is fetched from iCloud. This is a separate problem, not a bug, which we try to solve as well.

I noticed that turning 3G and WLAN off helped a lot with the framerate on iPhone 4. I don't suggest you should disable network access when playing (esp. on a phone) but I'd like to hear does this help with your device.

I can't get over how polished it is... how generous it is with the gems... how much fun it is to play...

I don't think I've been this happy over a Chillingo purchase in quite some time. I'm absolutely floored. =oD

This is most definitely my GOTW... and one of my favorite releases of the year so far.
Sounds very promising, today has been a good day for Chillingo for me, got swing king for free, and this game has a lot of good comments so probably will buy after I read all the posts here. Come on Chillingo, start making great 99 cent games like those of old!!!

Well, onto the rest of this thread. About halfway through, looks like a great hdmi game, so I am probably going to get it. Itchin to get something this week cause last week,Ididn't buy a game for the first time since I started ios gaming!

Honestly, cause as SV mentioned Chillingo's games have gone downhill ever since they were bought out by EA and they got away from their roots and stopped making awesome puzzle and other games, and got into endless runners and inapp wannabes. I really miss the Chillingo of old, I used to buy all of their games on release.

Now, most everyone waits, cause it is well known that most Chillingo games go free in one month and abuse the early adopters. Plus most games have a freemium structure from the start which doesn't help, kinda wish they would just release the games as freemium from the start, but I guess as most have mentioned here, it seems to be based on how a game sells. If it sells well, it will stay premium, if it doesn't, it will go freemium.

This leaves very few faithful loyal early adopters like us of old. Nowadays, most everyone justs waits a couple of months to see if a Chillingo game will go free. I try to go against this thinking once in a while and get some great titles like Catch the ark and probably this one, but a lot of people will persist to wait.

Anyway, made the decision to download, but please Chillingo, get back to your roots, please make us some great games, and reward us loyal early adopters instead of focusing on the bottom line. Thank you.

Don't worry, I'm gonna kill that score. Well, I already have, but my game time isn't lowering. Over the course of 2 particular zones, I decreased my time by about 6 seconds! But my time doesn't want to budge for some reason. It doesn't seem to be an issue of GC/wifi, because "your time" hasn't changed either (from 4:22:56).

Just curious, how is your planet time calculated from your individual zone times? Looking at my rough zone times, there's no way they could equate to 4 minutes and 22 seconds, so what does 4:22:56 even mean?

99 cents to get a good game a month before everyone else is a pretty sweet deal in my opinion!
