Heads up. I had this on my watch list on appsfire since others had recommended it.

Awwww

I saw the name and got really excited, I thought someone had done a copy of the superb C64 game of the same name.

Disappointed

Last iOS game I bought: 6/1/15

I often think of that game and hope someone takes on the challenge. 'Drugging scientist, ho ho' Wizball too. If ever a C64 title was perfect for touchscreens, that's it. What are Krix and Jops up to now?

The game is not bad. Recommended! (Anyway could be retina on iPad.) 22 achievements! Tilt controls (optional, standard)! Was already free two times before.

Any game that receives critical dispatches from Planet Zaxxon is clearly something I need.

Wow this game is awesome. And yes that is me at #11 and SyntheticVoid at #5. Looks like only one score on the leaderboard is hacked. Overall a great game. In a few games I earned 920 points worth of achievements and still have 4 hidden achievements to find.

This might be a stupid question but..

Why do people hack scores? It can't give them any sense of achievement or satisfaction by hacking? So.. What on earth do these sad people get from doing it? It really puzzles me tbh.
