Errors and spelling mistakes in iPhone games

A light hearted look at errors and typo's in games - I know from dabbling how difficult the game development is so don't anyone take offence or think I'm being cocky, but the first screenshot in this game made me give a wry smile

Any others you can think of?

Lol, wreaked. Doesn't mean it was a mistake, they could have meant that he stunk really bad so he crashed. But yeah, I've seen a ton spelling mistakes in games.
