DropZap questions for Game Center support

I'm working on adding Game Center to DropZap.

The idea is to have two modes depending on whether or not the player is authenticated to Game Center

* if not authenticated, the UI looks like it did before with respect to global leaderboards

* if authenticated, you get the Game Center UI for leaderboards instead (without access to the original leaderboards)

* when submitting a score globally, it would be posted only to the original leaderboard(s) or to Game Center (not both) depending on whether the player is authenticated to Game Center

Is this a reasonable approach?

Also, what sorts of achievements would you like to see in DropZap?

I think shutting out the original leaderboard in favor of just the GameCenter one is a little silly. People like me that can't make decisions will end up not wanting to get high scores, to avoid needing to make said decision.

I think you need to find a way to submit scores to GameCenter and the original Leaderboards. But that's just me.
