    Yes, you are all right. This game is brilliant!

    I do struggle with those diabolical swinging puzzles, however.

    My brother has had a similar crash 2 times playing a level in the third chapter. However, he is running the latest standard version of IOS 10. While he loves the game, he is too frustrated to delete it and start over yet again.

    The game has never crashed on me and I am much further along.

    I have to check that, it never occurred to me. Do you know which level crashed?

    Here is what my brother messaged me when I asked him about the level he repeatedly crashed on (he got past it now):

    Level 3 puzzle 9. It's actually very simple when you "grasp" the idea that you need to grasp the bars. Anyhow, when I would exit the app and come back later to retry it, the app would freeze here...

    Thank you! That helped me a lot. I found the bug, and I will fix it as soon as possible.
    For anyone who cares what the problem was (It is kind of boring though): This is the only level where I change the order of the bars, to have both orange bars appear in front. Then I check what collides with what, and rearrange the physic bodies. If these two events happen in the same frame, which is not very likely, the app crashes, and saves this wrong state as the last one to be opened.

    Love the game and it's highly addicting, but besides a few puzzles that are challenging until you figure out the trick to them and a few that are truly challenging, it's a little too easy.

    Has anyone been able to do World 7 - Level 15? I've only been able to get about halfway around the peg, I don't know how to get past that.

    Think and swing like a kid:
    retract your legs on the lowest point (just before reaching it) and extend them at the highest points.
    (I use a different technique to get a reasonable swing first, and then switch to above described)

    This is the technique I've been using, but it hasn't gotten me above the peg. I guess I just need to keep doing it?

    The timing when exactly to retract and extend is quite critical. Pay attention to what gives the most impulse.

    I got it! I didn't realize you were supposed to retract in both directions, I was only retracting when i was going to the right.

    To be honest I gave up on this level, Gamecenter gave up so me too, thanks Apple for making my life less fun.
