    Hi all,

    It's coming! Jamzu with Leaderboards and Achievements on both Game Center and OpenFeint. Should be released any day now. Can't wait! Also includes the new Jamzu DieDeck game mode. With DieDeck, each player's rolls are selected randomly from a deck of 1-6, creating perfect balance in rolls for both players.

    And of course, the *next* update, coming out very very asap, will include multiplayer in Game Center. Really can't wait for that! :D

    Cheers,
    ~Doug

    Race your runners across the board and block your opponent with the jammers. The jammers are both your allies and your enemies. Your advantage may turn against you at any time, but then you can counterattack right back!

    Jamzu is an original game of skill and chance, full of quick changes and fast-moving strategy. Jamzu is easy to learn and fun to play. Match wits against the computer on four difficulty levels, or play against your friends on the same device or over a Local Wi-Fi network.

    Why don't you just go with one of the two? (GameCenter?)

    Hi RttaM,

    Good question. OpenFeint provides several features that Game Center currently lacks, like integration with Twitter and Facebook, and easy ways to import friends, among other things. I love Game Center, but also love what OF does. They work great side by side (perfectly seamless with no interference), and the OF guys made Game Center integration work very well. So both it is! :D

    Forgot to mention the best reason for including OpenFeint along with Game Center. Players still using the iPhone 3G, or who haven't upgraded to iOS 4.1, can use the achievements and leaderboards on OF, even though GC is not available for them. Right now this group includes at least 35% of our users, probably more.
