    It is so cute and delicate. You can also enjoy it in airplane mode. The quality of the translation is excellent. There are many interesting things about every move and conversation. I strongly welcome game developers to go into the premium. Continue to release good series. I'll respond with a purchase and a cheer. :D

    I finished this fantastic "silly" labor of love, though i'm not done totally with it, yet. Those little mean difficult secrets, to 3-star every stage, won't let me delete the game. Usually, i hardly ever go for completing all GC-achievements, but if a game offers this cozy charming feeling, paired with good controls and pixel art, well, than i feel sort of obliged ;)

    *cough* a "build as high as possible" with those shurikens and as in level 25/26 would be something nice? *cough*

    A super steady thumb might breeze through this game easily within 2 hours, but it will definitely not fullfil all the objectives. Chasing all secrets gives you at least another two hours, imho.

    A well deserved 5 star review, and so did i in my swiss app store.

    Sorry, don't know either atm.

    Turns out tossing salad at restaurant 1 got me over 5k. The horrors this little UFO has seen.

    Somewhere in a town amidst the Amazon jungle.
    I got this in the morning. Will give it a go later at home. Seems like my kind of fun.

    This is not available on Uruguay either like Animal Crossing. Why?

    It is ridiculous to have region lock your games in 2018.

    Presumably because of localization issues. Thing is...developers seem to forget people know English, you know? This isn't available in Lebanon either and I can tell you NO ONE plays video games in Arabic over here.

    Has anyone figured out what the "I'll be Back" achievement refers to? I've got all
    81
    medals and
    27
    completed levels, with all the outfits including
    Medal King and Qbby's UFO
    . But nothing seems to be obvious for this one.

    Also, has anyone got over 5000 on a single mission? I can't even figure out which mission I should be trying to perfect for that one; 4500-4600 seems like the soft cap, and getting the rest via the time bonus would be insane.

    You didn't find it because you're playing too well. ;)

    See if that helps you figure out what you need to do. If not I'll swing back around with the answer.

    Haha, got it instantly with that hint. Thanks!

    I've been trying to reach 5000 on
    Moon Stage 1
    , since I think mathematically it's the most likely. Three 5 combos and a 4 combo so there's only one remaining, then one last 5 combo. But the damn things move around so much that getting consistent 5 combos is hell, and you also need a relatively fast time for it to work.

    It should give 3800, plus 300 for the medals gives 4100. If done with 90 seconds left on the clock, that'd do it. But I'd be glad to get some other suggestions, because I can't actually get it done.

    No iPhone X Support

    I agree that it’s a great game (gameplay wise). But with a lack of iPhone X support several month after release of this phone it doesn’t deserve a five star rating. It is technically imperfect and I blame also Apple allowing this release or at least showing it clearly in the AppStore.
    I am very sure we’ll see how connected the developers are to the community by commenting and supporting iPhone X soon.

    Restaurant 1 can net you over 5k. That’s where I did it. The clock is x5, not x10, so your moon theory won’t work.

    On the Moon, the clock IS x10. I managed it on Moon 1 after all, though I'll admit it wasn't optimal.

    I wasn't aware of that. Congrats. It seems to be the toughest achievement to complete.

    Any chance this game will have a worldwide launch? It's not available in the Indian App Store. Really wanna pick it up.

    If you still haven't figured this one out, the achievement's official description after you unlock it is
    "Let the alien boss escape in the Moon stage."
    That's a pretty big hint. If you need more of a hint, this refers to
    letting the timer run out in the stage "The Moon 3" without completing stacking everything on the alien ship.

    Yes. I accomplished this on the stage
    "Restaurant 1."
    Just
    keep stacking vegetables on the right side of the screen and only hit the bell right before time's up. The vegetables still count even if they fall out of the bowl, just make sure they don't hit the bell while falling.
    The
    Astronaut
    outfit makes this achievement relatively easy.

    devs told me that the game will stay as it is, unfortunately no more countries will be added in the future .

    but if you have relatives/friends in some of the countries where it is released, you can ask them to buy you an iTunes gift card, then you should open an account for that country and redeem the code, so you have the money to buy the game, i did it that way myself several times.

    If you are uncomfortable with the iTunes gift card, you can also get it as a gift from friends.

    In that case, you only need to have an app store account in that country. :p
