Word Game Hi Score Reset

05/07/09 | by funqai [mail] | Categories: Android, Word Game

I’m resetting the Word Game on line hi scores for the following reasons:
1. New timings make comparisons with old scores irrelevant
2. Old hi scores could have been scored by exploiting the pause feature
(For info on removing the pause, see the FAQ)

I’ll be removing all scores posted from versions prior to 1.1.4.

The Top five scores before the reset were:

MARC  	98  	38735  
ANZID 	614 	12146 
ANZID 	243 	8762 	
OLE 	120 	6572 	
ANZID 	124 	5867

Spira-Defence / Word Game PRO not saving

04/08/09 | by funqai [mail] | Categories: Android, Spira-Defence, Word Game

I wanted to draw peoples attention to the following FAQ entry:

The game is not saving my game / hi scores / options? It used to, so whats wrong?

I recently removed Google copy protection from the game. This was to allow people with dev phones access and it reduces the memory foot print for everyone. Users with previously installed versions with copy protection who then overwrite it with the new unprotected version could see this problem. If you do please uninstall, reset and reinstall.

Paid Apps Copy Protection

03/30/09 | by funqai [mail] | Categories: News, Android, Spira-Defence, Word Game

Android Spira-Defence Hi Scores

02/20/09 | by funqai [mail] | Categories: Android, Spira-Defence

Just to let you know, I’ll be removing all hi scores uploaded that correspond to versions before v1.0. This is for fair score comparisons.

As a general rule, if newer versions are easier (to score) then I will not delete old scores. If newer versions are harder then I shall wipe old scores, but probably make a blog post to keep for posterity the top 10.
