The Trick


Lastly, we thought it was pretty clever that some of you used Photoshop to create your levels instead of using the in-game editor (although it must have been a lot more work).

Eek, you didn't disqualify on that account, did you?

Because I did that as my pod was unavailable to me at the time so I couldn't create levels the proper way. It wasn't that much more work, I'm quite speedy in photoshop.

I voted for Surrounded. The other ones except Four Halls are not very good.
PS: I'm not the contender. Just an experienced Chuck the Ball player. 

Of course not. We just thought it was funny. At first we thought that people were doing it because they didn't own the game and still wanted a chance to win. Either way, it doesn't matter to us. If someone took the time to make a level, they deserve a chance to win.

That was good of you, even if I wasn't selected for the top ten. Thanks again for the contest, I meant it when I said I enjoyed creating the levels.

*cough* I'm just wondering what is the stance on voting on ones own design? Though to be honest, I don't quite know how I would feel with doing such a thing... probably dirty. However I bet fifteen dollars of promolicious credit would go a long way to washing off that dirtiness.... ho ho ho.

Ahem, I joke of course. wouldn't dream of doing that. I just voted for Black Hole Star. *noticed how mine has no votes* Please someone vote for my whale (called plugged)! I'm not above about someone giving me a pity vote!

But whatever... What's your level called mate? I shall avenge those without votes...
(Ah ok, just saw it *doh*. You now have 1 Vote my Sir. )

Fed up with all the casual games on the iDevice and in need of a new twist to the RPG genre? You can have an influence on the game with your ideas! For more info have a look at: Thread on TA / The Dev's Blog
