It is rather large isn't it? We didn't sacrifice any image quality where perhaps we should have, and with it being universal, all 3 graphics sets exist in the one executable (iPhonehd, iPad, iPadhd). Still, I don't think we did a great job optimizing the graphics overall, and that's certainly a lesson learned, and I'll probably trying making some concessions via updates along with a lot of other changes and improvements I'm already knee-deep in

I like this game... It's free and no ads. Basically, you need to set free all the 'melon' by flicking with other 'melon' on it. If you succeed to free all the 'melon' from the box, you can unlock the achievement. There are 100 achievements. I just unlocked 66 only. There're 3 kind of scoring; time, melon, and blocks. You need to set free the 'melon' as quick as possible by using fewer 'melon' and make big destroy of the blocks. So addictive and recommended to try if you like arcade-puzzle game.
Ps: there're pacman, Mario, mega man, etc inside

Thanks for the quick rundown copaeci!

We also wanted to have 100 leaderboards, for each level, and it did work fine in the Sandbox mode, but once we submitted to Apple, they said only 25 leaderboards are allowed (even though you can make 100), you can only technically submit 25. I believe that will change with iOS7, so it will be a lot better once we can enable the leaderboards for all levels!

We're also working on a large update which should improve the game a lot.

Thanks!

Hi, just want to say like your game, just wondering why you haven't made one overall score leader board that's way more exciting, well I think so don't know what other people think.

Hey Roger, we considered one leader board, but it really wouldn't work with the current implementation of the score resetting to 0 on every stage. Definitely something to consider though; we went back and forth on how the scoring would work during the development process, and the 25 leader board limit was a kick in the teeth, so we might just change to one leader board with the update we're working on now.

Thanks!
