While working on the 351 challenge, here is another I'm curious about - and it doesn't require playing any level a lot. Just check some scores.

Rapcoon had mentioned to me some time ago that no levels with 5 or more objects could reach the 991 point goal. I never had checked, so I went through all the levels, seeing which ones had 5 or more objects, and looked at my score list. Sure enough, on my iphone 4, none of them had 991. Anyway, here is the list of levels with 5 or more objects to drop. If anyone will check and see if you have 991 or above, I'd like to know the details (level, score, what device - and generation of device if it's an itouch).

All levels listed below have 5 objects if not otherwise marked. If more than 5, I list the number:

22 - 7 objects!
29
32
34
57
73 - 6 objects
99 - 6 objects
118
131 - 6 objects
162
170 - 6 objects
171

So, just 12 levels with more than 4 objects to check, assuming I didn't miss any. On my iphone 4, I can get 990.

Any one working with the iphone 5 and this game? I have it and have only checked a couple things, but need more testing:

1. I could get 991 on the first level.

2. I'm wondering if slo-mo doesn't happen with the new phone. I let in run over night and it seemed to be the same speed. That could be because it was just an odd result (I occasionally have almost no change when doing that with the iphone 4 but it's rare), or it slows down so gradually that more time is needed to make it obvious, or it just doesn't slo-down!

Don't download the latest version: it crashes under iOS3.
Previous version worked fine, but this one, sold as iOS3-compatible, doesn't run on iOS3.

The wrong patch notes come from an error, they should be corrected very soon.

We'll investigate ...but - the game will receive an iPhone 5 widescreen update soon. Unfortunately with the new Xcode the support for old iOS versions below 4.3 is not possible anymore.

At least, give a last iOS3-working version to people, before doing an iOS43-only version.
Now people have a crashing iOS3 version; the previous working version has been overwritten. When the iOS43 version will come, people won't be able to keep the iOS3 version, because the iOS3 version crashes.

Probably a hacker based on points and sudden appearance.

Also because the 2nd hacker - who we KNOW is a hacker - has exactly the same score.

It is official. Big K you are the ONE! Congratulations.
I hope some day soon the hackers will be removed and you can take a screen shot of your number one status on the gamer center leaderboard.

Thanks. Would be nice to get the top spot with the hackers gone. Apple really needs to make it possible to ban people who are clearly hackers. I think I've mentioned this before:

First make it possible for individual game makers to ban a player based on their Apple ID (so just changing their game name doesn't get them back in). Second, have a database of these banned players. If they get banned by "X" number of games, they are automatically banned from all of them - even if on some their scores are legit - as a serious punishment.

Don't know if they could hack around that. I would think they'd at least have to get a new Apple ID, but that, from what I've seen, can be a real pain. Even then, if they keep hacking, they'd just get banned again.

Sure, they could try to be more clever about it, but if they do much hacking, they'd have to be that clever every time. Most would slip up eventually.
