    The crash time is useful to know if a level can be improved any further. For example, I have a best time of .42 and I try it with the exact same strategy (order, timing) but a little faster. Then I see I crashed at 0.41 so I know for sure that faster is not possible.
    Another situation in which is useful: I'm trying a different strategy but see that I crash at 1.55 seconds while my best time is 1.50. Then I know that it is not worthwhile to continue with the different strategy

    Saosijs, I see you have improved some levels but apparently have some scores not updated. At this moment all mine should be on the list.

    Of the level scores that have been posted I'm only low on #41. Never can get them all to move on my fastest swipes.

    I found my and saosijs names!

    UPDATE: after "just" 39,019 total games I finally matched all the posted high scores. Just waiting for others to update to see if there are more.

    Guilty :D I have been playing mostly the "moving rock" levels, but some others too (mini in 1x mode). Actually, I will need to check all levels again, because I haven't kept record of what I improved. What I recall, nothing surprising though

    I've mostly worked on the moving rocks levels too but really hoping to see new scores so I know where to focus. After awhile I just get tired of trying over and over not knowing if more points are even possible.

    Assuming the other scores on 66 are up to date, I just smashed the record by 0.17. More may be possible but not sure.

    Also just beat 69 by 0.13

    Some good finds!
    And check 66, a new solution :cool:

    Got 77.77 seconds now. I think I shouldn't jinx that especially during X-mas time ...

    Which do you start with on 66? I've had my best success starting with the slow one but am far off your score

    Then would I be correct that the slow one is last? or second. If last it would have to wait for the other to pass by again and that may take too long. Back to practicing.

    Update- the more I look at it the more I think the slow must be second or third but darn if I can make progress

    Update- got close so I guess I got the pattern at least.

    OMG, I've been trying so hard to cut 0.01 from score of 0.28 to tie that record on level 41 so I'd have or match every top score. Out of thousands of tries I only hit 0.28 about four times. Usually even when I felt fast I'd still be between 0.33 - 0.37 so I felt like I couldn't improve. Then just a moment ago I saw all the blocks lined up and moving completely differently than before (close to a straight line). And then the score popped up - 0.13 !!!!

    I've often felt there was so oddity in the game result because I may struggle to drop 1 or 2 hundredths but suddenly drop 3. But never anything like this!

    Now, until I see some new level scores or new levels come out, I can finally take a break! Only took me 49,064 tries for the whole game!

    Oh wow, that is some fluke, or luck, but forced by your perseverance :). TBH I'm not willing to spend 5 times more time than I did so far to chase you. In fact, I think you could have taken your deserved break much earlier :p

    So does it mean you are ready to take on the next challenge, involving some mechanical nuts and bolts work? I'm no.1 too there, which of course means nothing if you decide to start playing :D

    When I first manage to match the top score on every level, I was very motivated to try again when you beat about 5 of them. When I saw you get the 0.27 on 41 though, I wasn't too hopeful. It was 0.03 better than my score which I felt had been very hard to achieve.

    But being on vacation, out in the country where it has been cold and rainy, I had lots of opportunity to keep trying "for just a few more minutes".

    Also, I have a theory on a way to reduce the competition! The more of those really hard points I can get, the more competitors are going to get stuck like we all have at worse scores. And a bunch will give up. Well, that's my theory anyway. So even if I lose the top position, chances are I'll stay pretty high.

    I'm playing the bolt game. Don't like it as much though, especially since you need all the stars on a set before being allowed to move to the next set. I prefer to get my points and go back later to do better. I'll try each level for awhile to get the stars but if it is a pain, I want to move on. Right now I'm stuck on level 15 of the third world.
