|1st time player / poster. (iphone) I bought the app a few weeks back and I left a 4 star review, great game, has masses of longetivity. It would have got 5 stars if one could change the physics a little. (but I can see how that would be a problem with the online scoring system..) anyway..
It would be nice however if the iphone / pod users could measure up their performance against other iphone / pod users... (not that I think any other group has an advantage.. I'll have to dig out my old clie and find out..)
|Hi PMD, yeah I noticed from one of the other iphone posts, and have been comparing my efforts to yours already.. lol.
I suppose a solution would be to create a country called apple...
|Thats not a bad idea actually except it would only compare medals...|
|'Pick a country' works for TTC, Packs and Levels|
|Quick observation - after one month and 3 days, it looks like almost 1000 profiles have been added to the web site. That's a pretty good number considering there is less than 8000 total in 4 1/2 years.
|You know its odd... I had never even considered that someone would think this game is too hard until I read the appstore reviews. I guess I'm just above average. Then those guys want Sz to change it just for them. They don't even know how long this games been around. Makes me twitch when i read them...|
|I agree with you spence, if anything it needs to be harder, people in the appstore are retarded|
|Sp far this new pack isent going to answer that call..|
|Maybe if you left the finish flags it would be easier for new players .|
|I personally think the game is perfectly fine the way it is, and I don't understand why many of the iBikers are complaining... I don't have any problems... I'm even (slowly) crawling my way up the top 100 list (I mean really slowly)|
|I think save and resume is an EXCELLENT feature. Not everyone is as hardcore as those in the top 100ish. I used to try to raise my rank, and was in the top 100 briefly, but I couldn't hold out till the end of the site year, so the graph shows my line disappearing into the bottom of the screen instead of triumphantly into the righthand side smiley/9.gif
The sheer amount of time it required just became too unbearable. 8,000 plays to get one spectacular time for some of the vets here!? That's practically Olympic level committment! Very well earned if I do say so myself, but I have long given up on such an honor and long term project. However, the love of the game has gotten me to return to it, and even go for it on the Ipod Touch. It's the same difference as a T|T3, but the nicer graphics (I'm aware 2.1 is also available for the Palm, but I'd rather not mess with what I've already got for the oddest of reasons), and the 'moreso novelty of the virtual buttons' (I'm not dissing this interface, but so far, I'd say hard buttons are the way to go, and probably just agree to agree that the zods were the best way to go) do rekindle the appeal even more. At the very least, I will strive to complete all of the official HoF levels, and as much of the user stuff as possible.
Won't be going crazy with BoD like I did in the past, but still, great to see the ol' site again.
|I must say that the resume feature sounds almost too good to be true. And 8,000? Man, that's when you just begin to know a level. That's right about when you just get warmed up. I have well over 2 dozen levels that I have over 8,000 tries on, and I've only submitted for 71 levels total. The only level that I have used a "resume" type feature on was Cave Dweller. But I had custom made it with the level designer. I split it into 2 halves. After perfecting each half dozens of times each, I began playing the entire level again and landed several under 2 minutes that day! With this resume feature, I can imagine how that would change the possibilities.
|ya, i gotta get around to downloading that. And 8000? Most of my golds didn't take anywhere near that. |
|spence, this is why Vega is conidered one of the best players of all time and you are not|
|Because I don't put a billion tries into many levels? I don't get it...|
|And I'm not sure you can be the judge of that Mr.45xx|
|um. flattering, pickle. thanks.... but I agree with Spence.
and by the way... if you pit Spence's accomplishments in BoD to some of the supposed "all-time greats",
his will hold up and even beat many of the great hallowed players of the past.
your "and you are not" remark is a bit off base bud.
