    There Seems to be a problem with the scoring system, I think you can get 9000 points max for a level right, so for the first chapter you can have 20 times 9000 points is 180.000 points correct, Well I have 181. 600 and I am no hacker. Strange is it or am I missing something.

    If you're fast enough you can get like 9020 or 9040 points if it is your first attempt (just reset every time to get it right)

    By the way, too bad you cannot see your high score of a level anywhere. Only thing you'll see is that you bettered your score when you better it :(

    For a puzzle game, it has a strange time component. You lose points already from the moment the curtains *start* to open, that is when the clock starts ticking. Then the time you take to position the elements also counts. The clock stops when the chicken reaches the bath. Better choice for a puzzle game would have been to start the clock the moment you drop the chicken. After all, isn't that the name of the game! Also, if I two-star a level, and then retry it to make a three-star attempt, all the elements are set to their default position again. Annoying.

    And there is a "spin to win" wheel at the end of an episode of 20 levels, where you win a random(!!) number of points. How stupid is that for a puzzle leaderboard???? That's where you probably got your points over 180k, Roger.

    [edit] ok, so the bonus points only count towards the Overall Score leaderboard (total game score), but not to the individual world score. On the first world I have like 181k points and the wheel gave me 20k random bonus points at the end of it, but the first world leaderboard showed 181k and the Overall leaderboard 201k. So that is not the reason you can have more than 180k in the first world. It's all very confusing. Moreover, when I am in the level menu of the first world, it shows the Overall score at the top, not the first world score ...

    I discovered a score calculation bug ... When I finish a level in just over 1 minute, my score is higher (over 9000) then when I finish it in for example 40 seconds. Looks like the formula is only looking at the seconds part and ignores the minutes. So to optimize your score, hit retry and start a stopwatch, then position the elements and when the stopwatch says something like 56 seconds, hit the switch, so you end up in the bath at time 1:00 or 1:01. This gives you between 9000 and 9200 points, depends a bit on the level. This is still no where near enough to get what the top 10 has on the first world leaderboard (200k+), so there must be something else (another bug?) that I don't know of ...

    The game's free just a week after its release. It went f2p or is it just some sort of sale? Thanks for clarifying.

    I downloaded it and have played a dozen levels. It has IAPs (hints), but does not seem to be f2p at all and I am really enjoying it so far. I would have been happy to buy this one.

    Hey ROGER-NL,

    The scoring system is a bit more complicated than that.

    The score is derived from a few factors including the the time it takes to place objects, how many objects you move, how many drops you take to get the best solution and how many bugs you collect.

    There are standard values you can hit by say getting the solution within the drop target, but you also get small bonus's for using less objects, getting to the solution in less drops than the drop target shown on the switch, and not using hands to get the final solution.

    I'f you want a perfect score or as close to the best score possible try to move the objects into place quickly and complete the solution in a single drop. There are break points at minute intervals that lower your score slightly, or give you bonus's.

    We want to make the scoring system as detailed as possible to reward those players that replay to improve their score, but at the same time, not make the bonus's for quick solutions, or smart solutions to be so huge that people that complete every level with 3 stars still get a fairly high score.

    Hope this makes sense. We put a lot of thought into making the scoring as fair as possible, and we studied games like Cat Physics and Cut The Rope as a guide for scoring games with similar game play, and also tried to add a level of nuance to ensure that players competing against each other all don't automatically end up with the same final scores, but scores based on how well the completed each solution.

    Hey Macplash and Slewish7,

    We had really bad luck with the release of the game. There was a glitch with apple that wouldn't let people download the game for the first day, took us 8 hours on the phone with apple support to get it fixed, and we had all our marketing spend on that day and nobody could download it. We then had 3 top review sites pull out on doing reviews because they couldn't download the game to try it out. We had pocketgamer pull out on doing a review 2 hours before apple fixed the glitch, but by then they had moved onto another game. The game has done terrible as a result. We did O.K.in China, Japan, Germany, France and Italy but it has dropped off the charts after a week everywhere else.

    We set it free for a day as part of a promotion in hopes of getting some users on it. Apple completely ignored the game for any features anywhere, so other than setting it free occasionally or putting another marketing spend on it there isn't anything we can do now. Bit of a waste of 3 years work, glad some of you guys enjoyed playing it, just wish more people had had a chance to check it out.
