    This took me a few hours (!) to get... :)

    Very addictive game, but I think I was getting a little bored with it once I had past half a million...

    edit: For those who haven't played it, here's the app store link. There's also a Lite version which features 4 levels.

    I gave it to one of the guys at work for a quick break. He got a little addicted too. ;)

    Your score is awesome. I love the game but I'm nowhere near your score.

    Thanks different!

    Now you have me hooked on yet another clever puzzler I'd never even heard of before your post (I just joined the scene mid February). :D

    I'm having a lot of fun with the Lite version but have to ask a KEY question in regards to the full game...what are these BONUS LEVELS they speak of for this game?

    I absolutely can't stand silly little pre-scripted puzzle levels (here is the field, no new pieces will fall and you have to find the one solution to solve this puzzle) and could see that being the most likely meaning of bonus levels.

    Oh, also, as I'm just struggling by in the demo I doubt I'll ever be touching scores like THAT in your original post, good going!

    Mine is like 48k. ^ ^

    I don't play often, but it's a great game.

    Probably beginner's luck...

    My first attempt at the full game:
    191,458

    Never completely cleared a level. About level 16 those obstacles got NASTY!

    I like the bonus rounds (at the end of every 5 levels), they're timed bits with fewer different pieces where you just try to score as much as you can as quickly as you can.

    Thanks again for the heads up, different.

    I'll post some strategy tips here, I want to see if anyone can reach a million (I haven't yet!).

    - Start with a small cluster and build it up over time. Each match accumulates points, so making one giant match should ALWAYS be your goal.

    - Discard ANY large match if you get given a multiplier tile, you can score even bigger! Remember you can only clear a certain amount of matches before the level ends.

    - When new pieces stop flooding in, use the accelerometer to shunt the matches around so that you can clear them all. The level won't end unless there's no matches left, and especially on the higher levels, you'll get a big bonus for clearing the board.

    - In the timed bonus levels, DON'T randomly tap the screen. Instead, focus on one single massive match. I've done this on the later bonus stages and managed to get 70k matches (with smart use of multipliers). Only randomly tap if you have around 5 seconds left.

    Good luck!
